davis cup doubles/Novak-Gail

The doubles between Zimonjic/Troicki-Llodra/Clement turned out to be the most exciting tennis match of the year. Nothing compares to Davis Cup, not even Federer vs.Nadal in a Grand Slam final…ok, maybe the 2008 Wimbledon final when Nadal won in five sets and had a planet/star named after him but even then the crowd was not […]

Davis Cup final

Gail Monfils showed in the first singles against Janko Tipsarevic that he is a better and more predictable player with a captain/coach to talk to during changeovers. He won in three sets and the first match on sunday between him and Novak Djokovic could go the same way. Even though I have to say Novak […]

Fed Nadal wrap up

Roger Federer was not as dominant as I thought he was going to be in the final against Nadal, he won in 3 sets,6-3,-3-6,6-1, but he got the job done nevertheless! The tactics Federer used were slightly more aggressive than the tactics of the past. The surface, which is medium speed with quite a low […]

Fed vs Nadal

For the first time this year we will be spoiled by a Federer vs.Nadal matchup in an important event. It’s not a Grand Slam final, which I think these days is the premiere sporting event in the world, this one is a close second. Federer outplayed Djokovic in the semis from the first point to […]

ATP Finals,London.

ATP Finals,London. Semifinal:Rafael Nadal vs. Andy Murray 1st set:7-6 to Nadal after the best set of the tournament so far.Murray played aggressive from the beginning and kept it up until the tiebreaker where he might have “pressed” to hard,especially going for his first serve to much only making one out of seven.It must be really […]

One match remains to be played at the ATP Finals between Andy Roddick and Novak Djokovic where the winner goes through to the Semis. So far the tennis has been of a very high level, especially Federer and Nadals levels. The fact is that both of them have turned all the other players in the […]

Im done traveling for awhile!!!!

Sorry everyone that this is a few days late! I just came back from Sydney, Australia and a Champions Tour event there and must admit I am a little tired from all the travelling I have done in the last two months. Enough complaining on my behalf. Pat Rafter was the eventual winner having beaten John McEnroe in the […]

Nov 8 back from Europe off to Australia

Oh,to move like Andy Murray,to be as flexible as Novak Djokovic,or as “smooth”as Federer,how about the toughness of “Rafa”,even just “the hands” of McEnroe or the “coolness” of Bjorn Borg!Imagine NOT having any of any of that? There stands Ivan Lendl! Maybe the most “confident” player of all time when he was at his best,.without […]

Kim Clijsters is ending 2010 as the best and most consistent female player on planet Earth after having beaten Caroline Wozniacki in three sets.I have to say Kim is playing better as a  mother than she did as someones girlfriend,much more at ease,looks more carefree without being careless and trying to use all “her tools” […]
