Australian Open – Seven Familiar Face...

Jérémy Chardy

  The first semi-finalists of the Australian Open 2013 are known and if it is without surprise that Novak Djokovic almost “routined” Tomaš Berdych, with the exception of a dropped second set (6-1 4-6 6-1 6-4), David Ferrer has been led a more than merry chase by Nicolás Almagro, who not once, but three times […]

  The first week of the Australian Open is now a thing of the past and we had to wait until Day 6 to get the first huge surprise of the men’s singles draw.

  It was a hot scorching day at Melbourne Park and with temperatures that reached 41°C, four matches (out of 16) went to the limit of five sets, one of which having for result a player getting back to the locker room, having a full body cramp, and ending up on a stretcher with an […]

Janko Tipsarevic Overcomes His Bête Noire

    There were still two first-round matches to be completed at the Rakuten Open, and both featured players who took part in last weekend’s finals, in Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok, a nice gesture by the tournament organisers to give an extra day’s rest to those players, whereas those who were in Beijing had to […]

Bad News For David Ferrer

Bad News For David Ferrer

  David Ferrer is having a dream season. Very close to a qualification for the ATP World Tour Finals (WTF), first after last week for the number of wins to date (62), second for the number of titles (5) and the number of finals (6), all was going well and he had a very good […]

U.S. Open – Any Other Favourite?

  The U.S. Open starts tomorrow, and if the Masters 1000 of Toronto and Cincinnati are any indication, the favourites for the title are not very original: world n° 1 Roger Federer and world n° 2 (and defending champion) Novak Djokovic. If the former has a very nice draw, the same can be said for […]

Upsets, Injuries, An Eventful First Day In Wimbledon

    “Whew!”   That was about my reaction when the last matches still going on were announced suspended due to darkness, near 4PM this afternoon. The day has been a whirlwind such as only the first few days of a Grand Slam can bring. Although somehow, with four retirements (only on the men’s side, […]

Copa Claro – Living The Qualifications A Full

The Copa Claro started today, with the first round of qualifications, and to be honest, I had to make a lot of very difficult choices. As much as I would have liked to watch full matches, it was sadly impossible because there were too many players I wanted to see. But I can say that […]

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 – Matches To Follow (Day 1)

The first Grand Slam of the season starts shortly and not only are the expectation and anticipation at very high levels, there are also a huge amount of matches to follow, on both men’s and women’s sides, and an all-nighter is pretty much in the works for many tennis fans, as a lot of the […]

Australian Open – Breaking Down The Draw (Part 1) – Edited Due To Withdrawal

The first Grand Slam tournament of the year starts in the early evening Sunday for us and as the singles draw was made on Friday morning (Australian time), taking an extra day for analysis (I admit, out of sheer laziness) gave me time to see who qualified and where they fell in the draw, thus […]
