Wow what an amazing tournament was Wimbledon in 2010! On the women's side there was the surprise defeat of Venus Williams as I thought the women's final would feature both sisters. Serena's final proved to be just another day at the office with… Continue

Murray played phenomenally throughout the tournament, so it was no surprise that he got to the final. Whereas the former champion Nadal was definitely not at his best and it was disturbing to see him pull out with yet another injury and it does make one wonder about his future in the sport. Federer had an amazing run as usual, and I honestly thought the final was pretty routine until the third set when Murray seemed to come alive and really began taking it to Fed. It was too little too late… Continue

First off I think it's amazing how quickly the majority of the seeded players were defeated in this year's U.S. Open. Clijsters has made an amazing comeback after being off the tour for 27 weeks now finds herself in the final. She played great in her semifinal match against Serena Williams although her play was greatly overshadowed by Serena's unsportsmanlike conduct. I was really surprised to see her lose her cool as she did during this match. Getting back to comebacks I personally find it… Continue

I just saw Del Potro defeat Nadal in the U.S. Open semis. Del Potro played amazingly, but it was disappointing to see Nadal so easily defeated. I don't think Nadal has been at his best since having had to take time off due to injuries. Del Potro made it look easy which was unbelievable. Del Potro is playing unbelievably - serving great and absolutely lethal off both wings. The final is going to be a really intense match up. Stay tuned!

Wow I can't believe Federer just won Wimbledon and surpassing Pete Sampras' record. The serving from both players was outstanding and the match was really neck and neck pretty much the whole way through. Roddick really had his chance in that second set and I think if he had won that set there could possibly have been a different outcome to the match. Roddick really played the best I've ever seen him and yet it wasn't enough to stop Federer. As John McEnroe said if Roddick had been playing… Continue

All I can say is was I right or was I right? Roger Federer just made history by winning the French Open as I knew he would. He played superbly - served well and Soderling did not have the game he used against Nadal. I was surprised by how well he spoke at the trophy ceremony because I have heard a lot of negative things about Soderling in that he does not have a lot of friends on the tour and that he isn't the nicest guy. However I felt he was very gracious in defeat and displayed a great… Continue

I just had to write to say I cannot believe Nadal is out of the French Open. Soderling played the best tennis of his life no doubt, but Nadal was not playing well at all. It was strange to see Nadal constantly on the defense and Soderling was serving phenomenally. A huge upset to say the least and I guess this pretty much paves the way for Federer to win the French.
