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 […]

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.

Australian Open – Breaking Down The Draw (Part 2)

Yesterday, I started my draw analysis with the players from the bottom half of the draw, who begin playing today. Meanwhile, we learned that Florian Mayer (20) has withdrawn due to a hip injury, that Rafael Nadal is tired of being the voice of the players’ grievances, that Juan Martín del Potro understands the reaction to […]

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 […]
