Roger Federer is Not A Douchebag

This blogpost was found here:

This is an ongoing post that will chronicle how Roger is NOT a douchebag, contrary to popular (and by popular, I mean internetz) belief. I’ve seen a lot of lists naming all the times that ~RF has been arrogant, prissy, douchey, etc. And yeah, he can exhibit those qualities, but at the end of the day he’s still a nice guy (a great guy, in fact!). Federer is just like every other player –… Continue

Tennis pros on steroids?

Sitting at a café in Cyprus as we speak, man I should have had time to post a blog yesterday but I did not have any. Oh well, enough time to write a blogpost I believe. Professional athletes use of steroids, is something I would like to discuss. The first person that comes into peoples mind is usually Rafael Nadal and it has been quite a topic for discussion during these last years. While some claim that he and many other top players on the ATP Wourldtour are using steroids, others say that it… Continue

Who will win the Australian Open 2010?

Who will win the Australian Open 2010?

I think it is very difficult to answer that question, would you have asked me what I thought of the Roland Gaross winner or even the Wimbledon winner I believe that I would have a much easier job in picking my favourites.

I love the atmosphere and intensity of the tournament, the oceanblue courts are fantastic and there is always a positive feeling comming from the crowd. There has been… Continue

The story behind a pro, Ryan Dominic Colaco

Ryan Colaco was born profoundly deaf. Since he was a young boy, he had a dream of achieving excellence in Sports. His father Michael was an all around athlete that began encouraging him every step of the way and becoming closely involved in his progression. “My Dad is an amazing person.” Ryan commented. It was a positive influence that eventually led Ryan to become involved in various sport activities such as ice hockey, tennis, and soccer where… Continue

Federer vs Roddick Wimbledon 2009 final HD highlights

Check out this great highlight of the 2009 Wimbledon Final between Roger Federer and Andy Roddick. What do you guys think about the final? Was it a deserved win for Roger Federer? Could Roddick have done something different? It was a very close match but I personally do not believe it was even close to being as exciting and fun as the '08 final between Federer and Nadal. But there was some great ralleys and the highlight is definetily worth checking out!…

Top8 ATP players to watch out for 2010

2010 is indeed going to be an interesting year, so I thought I would make a top8 list of players to watch for in the year to come.

1. Juan Martin Del Potro

I believe that this guy has a chance to take the #3 spot in the ATP worldtour rankings. That is if Rafa and Djokovic won't be able to step up their games. Del Potro already has a 3-0 result in match statistics against Djoko and after the US Open 2009 it seems as if Juan Martins confidence has been strengthened more… Continue

Interview with Nick Bollettieri

I called Nick Bollettieris Multimedia coordinator David today at 11.40 and was connected to Nick himself in a 20 minutes long phone interview. I had some problems recording what comes through the speakers so my voice volume is very loud, nicks volume is alot lower. You can hear what he is saying but I thought I would write down his answers so that you could follow what he is saying with more ease. I am sorry for this and will correct this by being… Continue

Wimbledon 2009: Doubles Finals Will be a Classic

The Bryan Brothers are the #1 team in tennis.

Nestor and Zimonjic are #2.

The Bryans regained #1 after dethroning Mr.Nestor from the #1 position.

Nestor-Zimonjic hold a 5-3 lead over the brothers in head to head match-ups.

The Bryan's and of course Nestor (with relatively new partner) are easily the most decorated and accomplished doubles pairs in mens tennis. They own all of the titles, including Olympic Gold between… Continue

Federer - Soderling 2009 French Open Finals: The Calm Before the Storm

Less than an hour to go before the French final between Robin Soderling, and Roger Federer. Both players are certainly performing their final preparations before taking the stage...Most which are mental preparations, and you have to believe that the mindsets of each warrior is slightly different.

Whether Soderling likes it or not, this is uncharted territory. Robin has gone far further than he has (boldly) ever gone before in a slam, and he's got… Continue

Soderling Triumphs, to Face Federer in French Open Big Show

Soderling has done it again.

To many, this is probably one of the most improbable runs at a Grand Slam in recent memory. While he certainly isn’t the lowest ranked player to get this far, Robin Soderling has never made it past the 3rd round of any major, ever! The guy has not even won a clay event in his life...And here in France, Soderling has not only made it to the finals, he defeated arguably the greatest clay court player of all time, in what was one of the… Continue
