I am really sorry about the blog being down. See the guy who is in charge of the host where I uploaded the blog was away for a couple of weeks and during that time, the domain shut the whole thing down because he had not paid in time. Very annoying but what to do?
It is finally back up and I do not intend to let this happen again. So what has happened in my life and in tennis? Beginning with me, I have suffered from an injury that has lasted for almost two months now.… Continue

...One of the factors that makes the great players great is their ability to deconstruct their opponent’s game plan, and then make adjustments in their own game to deflate the other’s effectiveness. Pete Sampras is one of the greatest ever because of his ability to analyze his opponent and then make his move. Sampras was so brilliant at this that he made it look… Continue

So this is my way of saying that I don’t understand the corporate mind. In the same way that I do not understand how corporations could have miscalculated so badly on the Tiger Woods brand, I do not get why Nike thinks that today’s Sharapova is worth 75 million dollars. And if you watched her match against Kirilenko yesterday, you saw everything that is currently wrong with… Continue
Murray has made his name, often consistently camped three feet behind the baseline, counter punching his opponents with his wicked consistency and variety of shot over the past few years, helping him to rise to the giddy heights of number 3 in the world, yet the Grand Slams have remained stubbornly elusive. Since the beginning of 2010, it’s not just his image that’s had a radical revolution (he recently signed a lucrative deal with Adidas replacing his often mismatched Fred Perry wear), his… Continue
...It’s gotten so that you can sometimes have a hard time telling who’s really hurting and who is pretending to hurt. It’s unfair to pick on them because they are not the only ones, but certainly both Del Potro and Almagro are among the players who have been accused by many of playing unfairly. Almagro famously took a medical time out for leg cramping just before serving to… Continue

Yesterday while watching the Sydney finals between Serena Williams and Elena Dementieva, it occurred to me that these women have a future market in producing instructional tennis tapes if they wish. It’s incredible the degree to which their rivalry produces consistently high quality and creative tennis. They have faced each other 11 times in their career, with Serena having… Continue

As tennis fans and enthusiasts get set to witness the ultimate slugfest down under, we take one final look to find out who, of the entire lot, is likely to shine brightest at the year's first Grand Slam, including the woman, everyone is trying to avoid, Justine Henin.
For the first time in years it is safe to say that the 2010 Australian Open Women's draw is at par with the men's draw in almost all aspects of the game, the competition, the drama, the ferocity and above everything the… Continue

Am new to this system and I would prefer to keep it less formal the first time. Actually I have a tennis blog: www.tennisfreaks.contentcreatorz.com/ and that blog is purely because I love tennis.
I came to know that Australian Open Tennis Champion draws have been finalized. Who do you think would be the champion this time around? Do you think Federer would be able to carry on his magnificent rule? Nadal will… Continue

CONTROVERSY....! A word that draws more attention than the best things in life one could ever possibly imagine. We wonder, sometimes, whether there is any walk of life where there is any dearth of it.… Continue
