Day 14 - Roger Federer wins the Australian Open tennis 2010

I have a slight headache. This always happens to me after a Slam is over. It’s part sleep deprivation and part the winding down from days of over-excitement. I will sleep like a baby tonight. And because both Serena and Roger won, tonight I will have sweet dreams of symmetry and balance...

Men's 2010 Aussie Final

Murray played phenomenally throughout the tournament, so it was no surprise that he got to the final. Whereas the former champion Nadal was definitely not at his best and it was disturbing to see him pull out with yet another injury and it does make one wonder about his future in the sport. Federer had an amazing run as usual, and I honestly thought the final was pretty routine until the third set when Murray seemed to come alive and really began taking it to Fed. It was too little too late… Continue

without hitting yourself in the leg.



2.0 - You have taken a… Continue

Australian Open Men's Semifinal 2 - Preview

It is almost insurmountable a task to beat Roger Federer when you are down 5-1 in the decider.

Should Rafa have swallowed a bagel?

Rafael Nadal

This article isn’t easy for me to write because more than loving Rafael Nadal, I also tremendously respect him. I respect his hard-assed determination, his bull-like persistence when playing a tennis. I like that he thinks for himself, rarely looks up at his box as his mind whizzes along, coming up with strategies and calculations to help him figure out how to crush his… Continue

Federer vs Hewitt - The Curse

The last time Lleyton Hewitt beat Roger Federer was in 2003, in Melbourne Australia. That was a long time ago.

I mean it must be so hard to be Hewitt at a time like this, homeground, cheered on by the whole crowd. This is your chance, this is your turn to show the world that you can do it, you really can. Can you imagine the… Continue
