Borna Coric, Andy Murray

The Davis Cup World Group playoffs are starting today, as Israel asked, and was granted, that the tie be played Thursday, Friday, Sunday with a rest on Saturday due to Yom Kippur, a very important Jewish holiday.

German Hail, Italian Whine, Nice Rained Out

It is safe to say that today has been one of the freakiest days of the season so far, as the day in every tournament on schedule has seen matches postponed due to the weather conditions. If, in Düsseldorf, it was only the end of the last match of the day (the doubles match between […]

Goodbye, Papa Ljubes!

Goodbye, Papa Ljubes!

Several weeks ago, Croat Ivan Ljubicic announced that after 14 years on the ATP Tour, he was pulling the plug on his career and that his last tournament would be the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters, in the city where he now resides with his family.   The laws of the draw made him play what […]

Indian Wells – In Come The Big Guns

After two days of action without TV, the second round of the BNP Paribas Open (Indian Wells) starts today with not only the coming into action of the big guns but also, yes, TV broadcast!   About time, as we missed quite a lot of drama and many good matches over the last two days, […]

A 2011 Review, Part 4 – The Year Of The Returns (2)

I started the last part of my yearly review, yesterday, with the great comeback of Argentine Juan Martín Del Potro, the best comeback we’ve seen this season in the ATP. However, his was not the only great comeback, as two others caught my attention and that of many tennis fans: those of Russian Dmitry Tursunov […]

A 2011 Review, Part 3 – The Year Of The Resurgence (2)

As part of my 2011 tennis review, I started yesterday with the players we did not expect seeing where they actually ended up. After reviewing the year of Alex Bogomolov Jr and Janko Tipsarevic, the second part will focus on Mardy Fish, Feliciano López and Radek Stepanek. Tomorrow will focus on two last players, even […]

Loaded Swiss Field

Loaded Swiss Field

The impression that I had when I saw the draw of the Swiss Indoors Basel (which I call the Basel Open to make short) is really that of an immensely loaded field. Three of ATP’s Fab Four are there (Rafa Nadal being the only one of the Incredible Foursome missing), five top 10 players, nine […]

ATP – The Last Stretch

ATP – The Last Stretch

With the Asian Swing ending today, the ATP Tour moves back to Europe for the last stretch of the tennis season. With two ATP250 tournaments this week, it will be a slow start after a Masters 1000 tournament, as almost usual, but one of those tournaments, the If Open in Stockholm, will get most of […]

Shanghai: A Quiet Start

Shanghai: A Quiet Start

As there were only two first-round matches on Sunday, last night/this morning marked the official beginning of the Shanghai Masters 1000, penultimate Masters 1000 of the year, and we cannot say that it was a surprising day. In fact, the only “surprise” came from Bernard Tomic, who defeated Kevin Anderson in three grueling sets, 7-6(5) […]

Rogers Cup Wrap-Up – In One Word: Great

If I had to use only one word to describe this week at Rogers Cup, it would be “great”. Great tennis, great week, great experience, great meetings, great support.
