The Rafa Serve: An Illustrated Commentary

 

Rafael Nadal is a fierce competitor. Just before he serves, he often gives his opponent a look reminiscent of a snarl.

Andy Murray: Keeping His Eye On The Prize

 World number three Andy Murray returns to match play this weekend at Indian Wells. He could take over the number two spot in the ATP rankings by reaching the finals. But there’s a catch. This changing of the guard can only take place if world #2 Roger Federer loses before the semis. Wonder what the odds of that happening are?

At any rate, to help things along, third seeded Murray has a first round bye  and will play either Evgeny Donskoy or Tatsuma Ito on Saturday or Sunday. On…
