Novak Djokovic: Why the Reigning US Open Champion Will Win in Flushing Again

Perhaps he’s not yet forced Roger Federer to abdicate his throne as the king of the hard courts, but Novak Djokovic is certainly capable—and worthy—of wearing the crown. He will prove that once again when he wins his second major of the year—and second consecutive US Open.

It’s fair to point to Djokovic’s struggles in 2012—he lost in the semifinals at Wimbledon, he failed to…

Already deeply regretting my decision

May 11, 2010 - Madrid, C. A. Madrid, Spain - MADRID, 11/05/2010.- Italian tennis player Flavia Pennetta regrets after missing a point against German Andrea Petkovic during their Madrid Masters 1000 tournament's second round match played at the Magic Box Tennis Center in Madrid, central Spain, 11 May 2010. Petkovic won 7-6 (7/3) and 6-4.


I can’t believe I’m not going to the US Open this year. What was I thinking? Why did I allow my secretary to book me solid with patients on September 7th, which is normally the day I reserve for recovery and recuperation from a Labor Day weekend of tennis? Can I really, truly make it through the year… Continue

Venus Williams : 'Moving away from Glory'

Most of us recognize Venus Williams as a five time Wimbledon champion, some even consider her the best server in women's tennis and others simply praise her for being an exceptional ambassador for women's sport. Though for Venus Williams herself, finding an identity, atleast on court, is becoming increasingly difficult.



As blatant as it may sound, there is not even a percentage of accusative element in the statement mentioned above and in an effort to present the readers with the… Continue

What’s behind Serena’s Fed Cup withdrawal?

Sony Ericsson Championships - Doha 2009 - Day Six

Barely a week ago, The International Tennis Federation (ITF) confirmed Serena as part of the team representing the US in the upcoming Federation Cup finals match. I was more than a bit surprised because Serena has not played Fed Cup all year. But the decision seemed in keeping with her thrust to close out 2009 in a spectacular fashion. (She must still be pissed over losing at… Continue

US Open 2009: Something OLD, Something NEW....and a 'Line Call'

The 2009 US Open turned out to be a mixed bag of emotions for some of it's biggest players as every single day brought a new star in the horizon.



The 2009 Championship at Flushing Meadows will be long remembered for not one but several reasons as the amazing fortnight came to an end with two of the most surprising winners getting away with the silverware.



A mere mention of the "Story of the tournament" can spark heated discussions among fans but the truth is that each and… Continue

The promise of Heather Watson

US Open Day 14

I wish I could say that I saw Heather Watson play at the 2009 US Open. But the truth is that I did not. Having had my heart repeatedly broken by supposedly promising Juniors who somehow never seemed to deliver, I no longer invest as emotionally in the Juniors as I once did.



And lest you think that I am being just a fair-weather fan, let me assure you… Continue

You can take the woman out of Compton

US Open Day 13



You know the expression. I don’t have to complete it for you. And it will be one of the ways in which the manner in which Serena Williams lost the 2009 US Open semi-finals will always be understood. Some will say that Serena behaved like a thug when she raised her racket in a threatening manner towards the diminutive Asian lineswoman and was possibly overheard… Continue

Is there a ticket scam on at the US Open?

Opening day of US Open tennis in New York



I’ve been going to the US Open since 1999. The first time I went, I was alone, a novice feeling her way around a major tournament. I was picked up in turn by an elderly Jewish couple with season tickets, a father and son from Columbia, and a Junior player who had lost in his opening round and needed someone to latch on to until his parents could… Continue

LIVE - Dinara Safina vs Kristina Barrois

World number one Dinara Safina manages to win again 'somehow' defeating the charismatic Kristina Barrois in three sets as she rallied from behind to win after over 2 hours and 12 minutes of intense battle. Safina won 6-7 6-2 6-3.

The match reminded of Safina's first round match against Rogowska where she had lost the first set too, but rallied to win.
