Close Call

    While a lot of the tennis world was still shaking its head over the great shock of Rafael Nadal’s early exit (and, of course, of the completely insane level of Lukas Rosol, particularly in the fifth set), it seemed that drama was again on the agenda on Wimbledon’s Centre Court today, as Roger […]

Utter Shock

Utter Shock

    I will not say “Lukas who?” as I’ve read in some places. I know well who Lukas Rosol is. Some data: Rosol was nearly triple bageled by Philipp Petzschner in Melbourne earlier this year and, up until this year, had never won a match in Wimbledon. In fact, he had lost in the […]

Eight Men, One Woman, Same Fate: Tough Draw

    The French Open is starting tomorrow, and with the draw coming out yesterday, the first thing I noticed was how bad the draw was for the Argentinean players.

Yesterday, I started my World Group preview for the Davis Cup quarter-finals with the tie opposing Spain and Austria, and that between France and the United States. Before hopping to the draws and schedule for the weekend, I will preview the last two ties, Argentina vs Croatia, and Czech Republic vs Serbia.   The order […]

Australian Open – Day 2 Wrapup: Bagels And The Lendl Effect

If the first day of the Australian Open was definitely the day of the five-setters, the second was, without a doubt, the day of the bagels, when no less than 20 bagels were fed to several rather unlucky opponents.   In fact, the match I followed the closest at the beginning of the day was […]
