World number two Roger Federer sent out a short yet meaningful message to his fans during the weekend, announcing that he married his longtime girlfriend Mirka Vavrinec in an intimate ceremony at his hometown of Basel in Switzerland. The couple announced last month that they are expecting their first child.
Here’s his message posted on his website:
Earlier today, in my hometown of Basel, surrounded by a small group of close friends and family, Mirka… Continue

This season is definitely starting off on a roll. Last night, I won my second match at 6-2, 6-0. I still missed a lot more than I should have with unforced errors, but I got it under control a lot sooner this time than last. And only two double faults, which is a miracle in itself, considering I just changed my grip on my serve this past weekend. Now I'm serving with the appropriate grip, doing a bit more pronation, and hitting the ball above my head instead of low and out in front of me. All… Continue

Last night was the first match of my second league. I came off to a great start, winning 6-4, 6-0.
The simplest analysis of the match was that in the first set, unforced errors were killing me - especially on the shots that I had the most time to prepare for. It's like the longer I think about it, the better the chance I'm going to overkill it, or plot it right into the net. During the second set, I toned it down more, and my shots became more planned and consistent, which made a big… Continue

I have been stringing for over twenty years and the last eight or so years have been stringing on the professional tour at such tournaments as miami, us open, australian open, and many other smaller venues as well.

Head, the Amsterdam sports-equipment producer that creates the Penn ball brand, said it would close its tennis-ball plant in Phoenix on March 5. In January 2007, Head began producing tennis balls in China and since then has increased output there. It's now closing the U.S. plant and will produce all its tennis balls from China. A statement from the company on Wednesday didn't specify how many employees are affected by the move or how much the closing would cost.
I'm actually shocked… 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
