Another Day in Dubai for Shahar

I hope everyone is doing well today and your weekend has been a relaxing one so far, and before I forget Happy Valentines Day to all you lovers out there!
I woke up this morning to a beautiful view from my room though there is some considerable amount of smog here especially over the main city centre. I didn’t sleep very well as there are 3 hours…

28 down: Rival of McEnroe & Connors


...I attempted to do the crossword puzzle in the airline magazine. I was doing swimmingly until I ran across 28 down. The clue read “rival of McEnroe and Connors”. And for the life of me I could not remember the answer. I started thinking of the contemporaries of John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors. Both of these men took up a lot of the oxygen in the 1970’s, their unique rivalry… Continue

Melina Harris analyses the link between sex appeal and success on court and asks whether the WTA's appeal relies more on sex appeal than talent?

Technique is important - but so is feel

Without using the right technique, it is not possible to become

anything special in tennis or even evolve as a tennis player. We all

have to learn the correct techniques, we have to learn how to hit the

ball and when to hit it. When to hit cross court and when it is okay to

go for a clean down the line shot. When to approach the net.... you

know the deal. I think the problem comes, when you try to hit the ball

like for example federer. You are so eager to make it… Continue

Tennis Is Funny Sometimes

Five-and-a-half years? I could do that standing on my head: Try 20 and we'll talk!

Feliciano Lopez won his first title in more than five years at the South African Open, beating Stephane Robert in the finals in straights. His game has some holes in it (mainly that topspin backhand), but he does have a lot of versatility that should've resulted in more than two tournament wins to this point. But I can't be too hard on the guy, because in a way, I really…

Murray and Robson will need to rise above the negative British Press...

I write these words on an unusually sunny morning in a coffee bar overlooking a serene and sparkling Ramsgate harbour in the garden of England, Kent, the location and inspiration for such literary greats as Charles Dickens, T.S Eliot and the master painter Turner. On the last day in January the British public held their breath and the world watched eagerly as two great artists walked onto the tennis world stage in the first Grand Slam final of the year in Melbourne,… Continue

El Gordo y El Flaco diss Federer

Madrid Tennis Open - Day Nine

Everything ran late this morning because of an ice-storm over the weekend. My first two patients had already called in late so there was no rush. I started getting ready for work at a leisurely pace. So I’m flicking the remote control between the various ESPN alternatives, hoping of course for some more celebration of Roger’s win yesterday. Instead I ran across Mike and Mike,… Continue
