Andy Murray: Keeping His Eye On The Prize

 World number three Andy Murray returns to match play this weekend at Indian Wells. He could take over the number two spot in the ATP rankings by reaching the finals. But there’s a catch. This changing of the guard can only take place if world #2 Roger Federer loses before the semis. Wonder what the odds of that happening are?

At any rate, to help things along, third seeded Murray has a first round bye  and will play either Evgeny Donskoy or Tatsuma Ito on Saturday or Sunday. On…

Roger Federer: Second on a list of the world’s most respected people

The Guardian, London

Federer vs. Nadal final at 2011 Abu Dhabi

 

 

Nadal responded to Federer's strategy of attacking returns by serving much more aggressive. You don't have much of Federer asserting the chip and charge against those serves. The other thing to note is how Federer is not crowding the baseline in these rallies. It is true that Federer had the better tempo at the beginning and Nadal weathers the storm like he usually does. Federer even had break point to win the first set. But his backhand in the…

Federer's incredible changes to win the 2010 London Masters

Federer has adapted once again to the threats of not only the young guns that could matter. In this category, I could lump together like a bag of stones: Djoko, Soderling, Berdych, Murray. The first three relying more on power and Murray relying on guile and court sense. But in the case of Nadal, he has forged a master strategy, one that I would've advocated from last year.
The increase in aggression after taking Annacone as a coach is dramatic. To win…

A Sunday for Second Chances: ATP Miami Final Preview

A fortnight ago, Andy Roddick came up just short against the startlingly resurgent Ivan Ljubicic in the Indian Wells final, a match that the top-ranked American entered as the distinct favorite. After a sparkling semifinal triumph over Rafael Nadal, Roddick now has the opportunity to expunge his desert disappointment by capturing the Miami title.

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
