12th seeded Chilean Fernando Gonzalez continued his dream run at the 2009 French Open with an exciting four sets win over championship's third seed and one of the strongest contendors for the title, Andy Murray.



"His forehand is the biggest in tennis," Murray said.



"If you look at some of the shots he's hit, he's hitting forehands from like a metre wide of the tramline on some points and hitting winners off them.



"Even if you try to hit a ball to his backhand,… Continue

2009 FRENCH OPEN: MEN’S DRAW PREVIEW



If you filled in your Roland Garros drawsheets this morning, you probably had an easy time at the top of the men’s: Nadal, Nadal, Nadal, Nadal, Nadal, uh, Nadal.



There’s nothing for the 4-time champ (or Rafanatics) to lose sleep over, especially with clay-averse Andy Murray the big gun in his half. Rafa will shrug off Dr. Ivo or Hewitt in the 3rd round and get a workout against Ferrer in the 16s. Verdasco, Davydenko, Wawrinka and… Continue

CHRIS EVERT ON ROGER FEDERER: “I CRY EVERY TIME HE LOSES”



Who knew that 18-time Grand Slam champ, Chris Evert, was such a hard core Fedophile? I’m putting her in the “Historian” category, due to the fact that she also really admires Nadal. Here’s the money quote from her ESPN interview with Bonnie D. Ford (click here for the full article):



“Isn’t there something about Federer that pulls at your heartstrings? I cry every time he loses a match, and I don’t even know the guy. (Laughs) There’s… Continue

DOPERS, EN GUARD! TOUGH ANTI-DOPING TESTING AT ROLAND GARROS

Tough new anti-doping controls will be in effect at this year’s Roland Garros.



From Le Monde (click here for the original, my translation):



“This year, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, like all players who compete at Roland Garros (May 24 to Sunday June 7) will not only be subject to traditional anti-doping controls by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), but also those carried out by the very effective French Agency for the… Continue

US OPEN Wednesday-Day Session

I went to the US Open yesterday with Mike S from the Brooklyn Tennisopolis group.

He had a extra Day Session ticket available, so we made a day out of it.



We saw Nikolay Davydenko vs Dudi Sela and also Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs Santiago Ventura.

I think Ventura is someone to keep your eye on.

The sun was pretty intense in the stands. We could only watch a set from each match before had to scramble for shade.



We also watched some Mens & Womens doubles being… Continue

Q. Was there ever a point tonight where you felt like a little defeated, like tonight wasn't your night?
