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...
Looking to find the right match to hit once/twice a week, rallying and games primarily for the exercise and enjoyment. Just changed my skill level to play a little bit easier so as not to get a tennis elbow which over the last couple of months has been in need of recovery. Please contact if you would like to play at that level and Studio City is convenient for you.

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

It is almost insurmountable a task to beat Roger Federer when you are down 5-1 in the decider. Yet, a certain French Gentleman found the will and the determination to do just that and showed the world that he has arrived. We are talking about ATP star Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who last year registered the biggest win of his career at Montreal Masters where despite trailing 1-5 in the decider, he bounced back to beat Swiss Maestro Roger Federer in a gruelling tie-break.

Both Andy Murray and Marin Cilic know how important today's match is for each one of them. It is a match that will see one of them get an opportunity to embrace Grand Slam glory, and for one in particular, Murray precisely, this match brings a chance to settle scores with the Croat who knocked him out of the U.S. Open last year.
Serena Williams is one of the few players on the circuit who takes defeat, any defeat very seriously and no matter what the stage, she brings her best efforts to prove her supremacy over someone who has been 'troublesome' in the past. Similar is the case with her match-up today with Chinese wonder-woman Na Li, who literally pushed her to limits in their previous encounter last year and with a win over Venus Williams, is an opponent with a CONCERN.…
Both Serena Williams and Justine Henin will enter the semifinals today, hoping to clear the Chinese hurdle effectively and reach the finals of the Australian Open. Na Li and Jie Zheng, on the other hand will hope for an all-Chinese final.
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

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