Who will win the Australian Open 2010?



Who will win the Australian Open 2010?



I think it is very difficult to answer that question, would you have asked me what I thought of the Roland Gaross winner or even the Wimbledon winner I believe that I would have a much easier job in picking my favourites.



I love the atmosphere and intensity of the tournament, the oceanblue courts are fantastic and there is always a positive feeling comming from the crowd. There has been… Continue

Ask.com says Usain is better than Federer

Track and Field: 12th IAAF World Championships in Athletics

Actually seven men plus one fictional TV character came in ahead of Federer on ask.com’s poll of the most influential men of 2009. And the fictional character was deemed the most influential of all.



I still can’t wrap my mind around the idea that a pretend character on a TV show is considered more influential than all of the living breathing men on this list. How… Continue

Check out this great highlight of the 2009 Wimbledon Final between Roger Federer and Andy Roddick. What do you guys think about the final? Was it a deserved win for Roger Federer? Could Roddick have done something different? It was a very close match but I personally do not believe it was even close to being as exciting and fun as the '08 final between Federer and Nadal. But there was some great ralleys and the highlight is definetily worth checking out!…

Top8 ATP players to watch out for 2010

2010 is indeed going to be an interesting year, so I thought I would make a top8 list of players to watch for in the year to come.



1. Juan Martin Del Potro

I believe that this guy has a chance to take the #3 spot in the ATP worldtour rankings. That is if Rafa and Djokovic won't be able to step up their games. Del Potro already has a 3-0 result in match statistics against Djoko and after the US Open 2009 it seems as if Juan Martins confidence has been strengthened more… Continue

Interview with Nick Bollettieri



I called Nick Bollettieris Multimedia coordinator David today at 11.40 and was connected to Nick himself in a 20 minutes long phone interview. I had some problems recording what comes through the speakers so my voice volume is very loud, nicks volume is alot lower. You can hear what he is saying but I thought I would write down his answers so that you could follow what he is saying with more ease. I am sorry for this and will correct this by being… Continue

Tennis League Season 4, Week Two

This week, I only got to play two out of three of my leagues due to Yom Kippur that fell on Monday evening.



Singles went quite well last week. One thing my hubby has always noted about my game is that I'm not aggressive enough. I definitely try to play pretty safe to make sure my shots are consistent, but that also means fewer winners and longer rallies. But last week, I tried to step it up a bit, with a goal to not be the last court still playing the match, like I usually am. And… Continue

Early musings: Family Circle Cup 2010

Oudin Out At Family Circle Cup

...But the reason I have the Family Circle Cup on my mind is because I read recently that Melanie Oudin has already committed to enter. That and the fact the Family Circle folks called this week to ask me if I wanted to renew my seats. I have to admit that I am kind of torn.



On the one hand you know how committed I am to supporting tennis. And… Continue

TENNIS..... a boom or a bust?

Some will argue that the sport of tennis began around the 12th century in a crude form, but most historians agree that the modern version of tennis as we know it today began around 1860. Tennis initially bcame popular among the UK elitist snobery, then spread throughout the world. The game rules varied until around 1924 and really haven't changed much since.



During the 70' and early 80's disco period, tennis surged in popularity. The woodie racquets were quickly becoming garage… Continue
