What a great week it has been.
Robin Soderling showed the world that he has alot to offer and that he is one player to watch out for.
Fernando Verdasco showed that he still needs to improve the mental aspect of his game if he wants to be able to play at this level in the future.
Rafael Nadal who wanted to do well and who never gave up, unfortunately could never be aggressive enough to make any difference.
Andy Murray with all the pressure of being in… Continue

If Nadal lived in the US, his parents’ divorce would have been plastered across the front page of gossip magazines everywhere. Speculations about the real cause of the divorce would have been rife, and lovers would have been invented for both parties, with quotes being attributed to unnamed ‘close personal friends’ and ‘insiders’, to avoid lawsuits.

I have been on such a high. My high started with the released photo of the group of men finalists all dressed in suits. Some of them looked as if they had never put on a suit before and couldn’t wait to wrench it off their bodies and go back to being sweaty. Others looked as if they were born to be dressed by Anna Wintour. Either way, they all looked all kinds of awesome, a… Continue

There are two feelings going through my mind when discussing Robin Söderlings great success so far in the finals, everybody knows he won in straight sets versus Rafael Nadal. The first feeling is tells me that it is great to see a swedish tennisplayer that has achieved such success!
A dedicated player with all the shots needed to play on such a high level. The other feeling does not really like Robin. And I am not only talking about his personality, everyone is different, some are… Continue

As some of you know Im a bit of a Racketaholic.
Throughout the 2 yrs Ive been playing i have continually analysed my progression, fitness and equipment.
As i did with golf when i was younger over a period of 3 yrs I moved from a 9 handicapper to scratch using the same obsessive analysis.
As ive improved (I used to play to a reasonably high level when very young) and got back to some of the consistency of my teens Ive also assessed my… Continue

(1) Roger Federer
Twin motives remind
The king, that win, draw, or lose,
Love still waits at home.
(4) Andy Murray
Irked by the sense
Of being discounted, eclipsed
London is his chance.

...Like Serena, Andre has been doing the rounds promoting this book. Like Serena he has been hopping from one continent to another, submitting to interviews and fan-filled book signings. Except that unlike Serena, Andre is a thoughtful and self-revelatory interview subject. Here is a report written by Elaine “Lainey” Lui, a Special Correspondent for Canadian TV who… Continue

And so we have reached the end of the year, time for vaccation and relaxation. Time to heal the wounds and get ready for the new year, 2010. But before that, it is time for the top8 players in the year-end ranking to face of in one of the most anticipated world tour finals ever.
This year, in London. Everybody is excited about it, because of the fact that it has moved from Shanghai to London, most probably more people are going to want to watch it and take place on the facinating… Continue

I play for four different tennis teams right now. That means, with shuffling line-ups and subs, I may have four different partners each week. In the course of a month, I can theoretically be partnered with sixteen different people!
So, each month, I may be learning how to partner and achieve success with sixteen different people. And, sixteen different people may be sizing me up, considering my tennis game, deciding if I am the kind of partner they ever want to play with… Continue

Shocking first-round exit against Julien Bennetau. Federer wins first set comfortably (5-2). And like he usually does when he gets comfortable, in his mind he thinks the match is over and it is going to be an easy win, but Julien forces the second set into a tie-break and wins that one. Roger looses his composure and gets broken early in the second set, match results: 5-2 6-7 4-6 - Julien Bennetau wins his greatest match ever so far in his career. Good for him. What… Continue

The good town folk of Basel were in for a treat this last weekend, or so they thought. Basel resident and favorite son Roger Federer lost in three sets to Novak Djokovic 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 bringing to a close what had started off as a pretty good year for the greatest tennis pro off all time. Well there's always the Barclays end of year Master's Series in London to redeem himself before taking a much needed vacation.
So what went wrong? Have the top dogs found a chink in Federer's… Continue
