Top 10 Greatest comeback matches of the decade - Women

Sportsworld can easily be considered the best source of dramatic entertainment. An entertaining match does not just call for power and technique, but the drama that spellbinds the spectator with the nail-biting tussle. Unlike the drama we seek in other sources of entertainment, there are no pre-decided scripts here, no direction, just pure tenacity and the WILL TO WIN.



The history of tennis has witnessed many such occasions where the expected 'vanquished' has come from the brink of… Continue

Rent a Coach/Player hourly !

I'm a professional instructor of this great sport. I have played tennis for almost 6 years and began teaching children in tennis clubs in Brazil. After this, I started to teach adults and elderly. I stopped teaching tennis since I started to travel the world working as a professional model in Asia (China, Philippines, Hong Kong) and Europe (Italy, Milan). I got married 7 months ago with my beautiful and loving wife Janice, who is originally from Hawaii. My wife and I resolved to live in Pearl… Continue

Switching racquets after 14 years. Goodbye Graphite II, Hello Speedport Black.

OK, I promised to blog about why I am so horrible. I blame my horribleness on the fact that I've just switched racquets for the first time in 14 years.



I had been thinking about a change of racquets for a while, having considered it on and off for the last 4 years or so. Racquets seemed to be looking more different, potentially holding great promise of technologies for improving my game, maybe even making me a better person. Each time, though, I was stopped by what seemed like… Continue

Customisation and Paint Jobs (join my group)

Tried the customised route and it works for me on a head LM radical and i.radical (strung weight 318g) I added an extra grip (15g) and lead top of handle (20g) and lead at 10 & 2 (10g) Total weight 363g, and 8 pts head light. These IMO are the best rackets to customise (the radicals) they are great rackets that need a bit of ooomph.



I think its interesting to customise and see how it affects your game and I have definately come out of… Continue

Dodgy knees and the hardcourt season.



Forget the grass court season August is my favourite time with Montreal, Cincinnatti and the US Open all on the hard courts, great games, great point, just great tennis.



Who are your tri-bet for the series above, who will be number 1 when the US open is done? Will Nadal be back? Will Fed slip on baby sick and sprain his wrist? Will Roddick slip off his wife and sprain his ego (for want of a better word)? Will DP smack his head on the… Continue

Marion and Dr. Bartoli

...I was stunned by the way the commentators were crying down Dr. Bartoli yesterday. Not because I disagreed with what they were saying -- au contraire -- but because one so rarely expects such a high level of honesty from ESPN-hired commentators covering a match.



But those commentators held nothing back. One described her horror at watching Dr. Bartoli put his daughter through the paces of warming up for a match. It sounded almost as if Marion burns up so much energy in the bizarre… Continue

Fed Twins! : Myla and ... Charlene?!?

federer twins with nike booties

Well, OK - we cheated. We couldn't find a pic of both babies today, so we just photoshopped this one. How did you figure it out? We think this is Charlene Riva rather than Myla Rose. But can I just stop and say, "Charlene?!?" really?... Charlene?



Zurich - Only hours after their widely anticipated birth, the twin daughters of Roger Federer and Mirka Vavrinec are already being tipped for tennis stardom, with London bookmakers Friday… Continue
