Rafael Nadal is a fierce competitor. Just before he serves, he often gives his opponent a look reminiscent of a snarl. But contrary to what some of us might be thinking, that doesn’t mean he’s about to try to serve that opponent off the court. More often than not, he’s just looking for an effective…Continue

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…Continue

I guess I’m speaking for everyone who has ever picked up a tennis racquet and for everyone who enjoys watching tennis live or on TV when I say, “I miss Rafa!”. Don’t we all.
Well, I’m sure his return is on the horizon. And like everyone, I’m wondering if his knees will allow him to mount a successful return competing for Grand Slams against the top guys – you know who they are.
There’s no doubt Nadal will have to work very hard to keep up with his peers. He knew that a couple…Continue

Novak into the Australian Open Final
Maybe the most physically demanding matches in the history of tennis. These two battled for nearly 5 hours and the quality of tennis was off the charts. Amazing shots, amazing gets, and tons of heart from both players.
I felt having Lendl in Andy's corner was a big help and has pushed Andy's game to another…Continue

Australian Open Quarterfinal Action
Great day and the 2012 Australian Open Final!!! Kim Clisters shows her Australian fans that she still has some magic left as she takes out Caroline Wozniacki 6-3,7-6.
This puts Clisters in the Semi-Finals and sends Caroline into another press conference having to answer will she ever win a major? I…
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…Continue
