Important Milestone In Houston

Important Milestone In Houston

It’s a bit of a slower week for most of us after the emotions of another great Davis Cup weekend (about which you can read my series of summaries here: part 1 (Spain and USA), part 2 (Argentina), and part 3 (Czech Republic)). Nevertheless, there are still good tournaments to follow in the ATP250 events of Houston […]

This Week In A Few Names

This Week In A Few Names

I got back from three wonderful weeks in Argentina yesterday, including the best tournament I’ve ever attended/covered, but this doesn’t mean that Copa Claro notwithstanding, I haven’t followed, at least a little, what has been going on in the tennis world. Of course, I followed mostly the tournaments of Acapulco and Dubaï, albeit via scoreboard […]

It’s Been A Long Time Coming (But Oh, So Worth It!)

Three ATP tournaments were played this week, before the ATP action stops to make way for the first round of Davis Cup and in the three tournaments, two featured a first-time finalist. Sadly, both lost but it was to the revival of veterans (kudos to Mikhail Youzhny, who won both the singles and doubles – […]

Australian Open – Day 1 Wrapup: The Five-Setter Day And The Rising Star

If there is one thing that we can say about the first day of the Australian Open, it is that it was all but boring. High drama, incredible shotmaking, Australian heat and tricky conditions were part of what the day brought us, along with a few upsets, some more surprising than others. The first day […]

Getting Ready For The Oz (Part 1)

While some of the players are competing in Sydney and Auckland this week, others are in Melbourne and getting accustomed to the courts in preparation of the Australian Open, which starts Monday, or battling in the qualifications to enter the main draw, qualifications that have seen their first day suspended for a long time due […]

A 2011 Review, Part 3 – The Year Of The Resurgence (3)

If you remember, a couple of days ago, I started talking about the players who had known some kind of resurgence throughout the 2011 season. I should say those who have improved to the point of reaching, this season, their best career results. I started this part with Alex Bogomolov Jr and Janko Tipsarevic, then […]

Double Duty Translates In Double Triumph

Yesterday, I was blogging about how Carlos Berlocq would today have the double duty of playing both singles and doubles finals at the Copa Topper. And for the Argentine, it translated into a double triumph, as he had the better of young Portuguese Gastão Elias in the singles finals and, a couple of hours later, […]

The Double Duty Of Carlos Berlocq

The Double Duty Of Carlos Berlocq

The Copa Topper will reach its conclusion tomorrow and all week, we’ve been spoiled with great clay-court matches on the grounds of the Vilas Club, in Buenos Aires. Sadly, I was here in Montreal following everything but it was, nonetheless, a very enjoyable tournament and tomorrow’s finals should be as interesting as this week has […]
