Australian Open – Breaking Down...

  Just like I did with the Wimbledon draw last year, and since I’m a little tired of conventional draw breaking and of the focus on the top guns, I will do something a little different once more.   From the young guns to watch to the veterans who haven’t said their last word, with […]

The Best Conclusion To A Great Season

Guido Pella concluded the best season of his young career by winning the ATP Challenger Tour Finals title, his fourth and most important Challenger title of the season (Photo: ATP Challenger Tour Finals website)

    A couple of months ago, I wrote the following about Guido Pella, after he had won his third Challenger Tour title of the season, and reached a then career high ranking of 121 in the world:   “At this rate, he can very well reach [the top 100] before the end of this […]

Great Weekend For The Pellas

Great Weekend For The Pellas

  It was a great weekend to crown a good week for the Pella siblings, as both of them won the tournament in which they were entered.   Saturday, Catalina, 19, took the title at the $10,000 tournament of Villa Allende, Argentina, when she defeated Camila Silva of Chile, 3-6 7-5 7-6(4), in the final.

Well, the same can be said about the Colombians, as there are two in the main draw (Santiago Giraldo and Alejandro Falla) and the draw […]

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 […]
