📷 Flushing meadows in winter. Snowing in NYC, but it's tennis season again! Excited for Australian Open...
The Grand Slam baton has been passed from Flushing Meadows to Melbourne ahead of the 2015 Australian Open.
SYDNEY (Reuters) - Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro served notice of his strong form ahead of the Australian Open when he crushed defending champion Bernard Tomic 6-3 6-1 in the final of the Sydney International on Saturday. The 2009 U.S. Open champion simply overpowered the talented but inconsistent Australian on Ken Rosewall Arena, bringing the one-sided contest to a close with a booming service winner after 53 minutes to claim his 18th career title. Playing near faultless tennis, Del Potro served with venom and unleashed powerful forehands and backhands that forced a string of errors from the overwhelmed Tomic. "Finals never are easy, but I was surprise by my level tonight. I think I played great," said Del Potro. "My forehand worked perfectly, I made a lot of winners, many aces, played good slices. Every long rally we played I won all of them." Seeded fifth at Melbourne Park, the 25-year-old looks to be approaching the sort of form that secured him his greatest triumph at Flushing Meadows before a wris ...
MELBOURNE (Reuters) - If players, pundits and bookmakers are to be believed, Serena Williams has already sewn up her sixth Australian Open title and the other 127 women in the draw may as well pick up their racquets and head home. Riding a 22-match winning streak, the American juggernaut arrives in Melbourne Park fit, fresh and ravenous for more Grand Slam success at a tournament where injuries and illness have robbed her of yet more silverware in the past three years. Age has not wearied the 32-year-old, who after winning her second French Open crown last year became the oldest woman to win the U.S. Open when she raised her 17th Grand Slam trophy at Flushing Meadows. The winner at Melbourne Park in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2010, another triumph would see Williams equal Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert's tally of 18 major titles and draw her closer to German great Steffi Graf's 22. Australian Margaret Court leads the all-time list with 24. Williams's place in the tennis pantheon is assured but her co ...
Undoubtedly Serena Williams is the player of the year 2012. What a remarkable come back from Serena to sweep the Wimbledon 2012, Olympics 2012 gold medal, US Open 2012 and Istanbul WTA championships. Victoria Azarenka would be the second best player of the 2012 season winning her maiden Grand Slam at Melbourne and extending her winning streak to 26 matches in a row. The clay court swing was a big let down for the Australian Open champion. She was a beaten semi finalist at Wimbledon 2012 and losing finalist at Flushing Meadows losing to the eventual champion Serena Williams. Sharapova started off the season in great shape reaching the finals of the Australian Open 2012 and went on to win the career slam at Roland Garros. Thanks to the surprise defeat of Serena Williams in the round one of the championships. Sharapova lost to Sabine Lisicki in the round of 16 at Wimbledon 2012 and lost to Azarenka at the Flushing Meadows 2012. Sharapova also finished runners up to Serena at Istabul year end championships.
Glorious year for tennis. NOW they can be called the big four. Australian Open- Djokovic, Roland Garros- Nadal, Wimbledon- Federer and Flushing Meadows- Murray.
You can see in Murray's stone cold eyes he's already mentally left Flushing Meadows and has the 2013 Australian Open on his mind
Only Serena Williams Can Stop Serena Williams! RSI (c) The seeds have been announced. And if it always has been Serena Williams' world in imagination, so it is again in deed. As summer approached, the truth was that if she was in the draw and healthy, regardless of seed or ranking, Williams was considered the favorite in every tournament. This was true even though Williams hadn't won a major since Wimbledon in 2010, but none of the headliners of the women's game -- CarolinE Wozniacki, Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka -- could claim a mandate over her. Today, the imagination and the results have again aligned. A year that began with losses to Ekaterina Makarova at the Australian Open and Virginie Razzano at Roland Garros (in the first round, no less) continues at Flushing Meadows with Williams again holding the title of the dominant figure in the women's game on the court. Wimbledon was hers, and so was Olympic gold, in both in singles and doubles. The Serena narrative leading up to the London Games ce ...
Prediction: Roger Federer and Sharapova - Serena Williams will be exhausted after her exploits at Wimbledon and in the Olympics - to win the U.S. Open while Andy Murray will be desperate to win that elusive Grand Slam title. Although Murray will definitely be buoyant after winning the Olympics despite being massacred by Chardy Fish a couple of days ago. I think Murray has a realistic chance as hardcourts is his preferred surface - well so he keeps reminding us - and he has already reached three Grand Slam finals (2008 U.S. Open, 2010 Australian Open and 2011 Australian Open) on hardcourts. Murray is pretty good on clay and grass as well but if he is going to break his Major duck then it will probably come on the hardcourts of Flushing Meadows or Melbourne.or maybe both. His limit on grass and clay will be semis - only reached final of Wimbledon because Nadal got humiliated in round one by a nobody lol - despite reaching final of Wimbledon and winning Olympics at Wimbledon. Okay Murray has beaten Nadal in ...
