To some, Murray's recent below expectation performance is more or less an aberration, and to others, it's a fact that the Scot has finally come to terms with his real shortcomings. Find out more about the Murray's struggles in dealing with the form and criticism...!

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.

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

Last weekend we had this screening in Berlin. We screened all qualified players of the Masters Cup in Shanghai on two walls at Checkpoint Charlie. It was really fun to work with these heavy-duty projectors and see the results on the wall.
For example Roger Federer (in front you see the historic border between FRG and DDR - the sign on the right side says: "You are leaving the american sector!"):
We showed him the pictures and he… Continue

Thanks to the photographers of Reuters, Getty, AP, AFP and other agencies we can enjoy in photos from Beijing.
