Rafael Nadal returns to Grand Slam action with victory at the Australian Open. Full story:
My dear friends, I made my way to Melbourne this week to help my friends at the Australian Open kick off my favourite Grand Slam. Earlier today, I had a very special opportunity to step out on the Rod Laver Arena once again and spend some time with the fans. I’ve walked out on this court more times than I can count, yet today it felt extra special. I was no longer alone out there fighting my opponent (and sometimes myself); today it felt like I was in the company of my 15,000 friends. A mere 12 months ago, I stood on this court clutching the Australian Open trophy tightly in my hands, a huge grin on my face, overwhelmed with joy and a sense of accomplishment that I shared with everyone who had helped me along the road to this incredible achievement. Today, all of those emotions came back to me, yet I had extra butterflies in my stomach because I wanted to share a very special secret with the Australian Open fans. Over the years, they have supported me and truly helped my success, so it felt just right t ...

Roger Federer maintained his record of never having lost in the Australian Open first round Monday as he started his quest to become only the second man in Australian Open history to win five titles. Roy Emerson won his sixth crown in 1967. The second seed, a winner of 17 Grand Slam championships, defeated Yen-Hsun Lu 6-4, 6-2, 7-5 during the night session on Rod Laver Arena. He will next challenge Simone Bolelli, who was a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-1 winner over Juan Monaco. Federer, who has reached the Australian Open semi-finals for 11 straight years, struck 26 forehand winners in the pair's third meeting. Lu, who won his third ATP World Tour doubles title at the Aircel Chennai Open (w/Marray), could not convert any of his four break point opportunities. The 33-year-old Federer captured his 83rd tour-level title at the Brisbane International presented by Suncorp (d. Raonic) for his 1,000th career match win. Federer’s coach, Stefan Edberg, the 1985 and 1987 Australian Open champion, was celebrating his 49th bi ...

Cilic withdraws from Australian Open: US Open champion out of year's first Grand Slam.
I am really disappointed to announce that I had to withdraw from the Australian Open. Right shoulder injury, that hampers me for some time now and forced me to withdraw from the ATP event in Brisbane, is improving day by day, but I still don't feel fit enough to be able to compete at the highest level. I am really sad that I won't be able to participate in Melbourne, especially after winning the last Grand Slam in New York, but I was advised by doctors to be careful as much as possible to avoid even more serious problems. I have received lots of support letters from my fans worldwide lately and I am grateful for your support and best wishes. I was really looking forward to be back on court in Australia and now I hope we will meet very soon in Zagreb." Veoma sam razočaran što moram objaviti da sam otkazao sudjelovanje na Australian Openu.

LETTER FROM Li Na: My dear friends, For close to fifteen years, we’ve been a part of each other’s lives. As a tennis player representing China on the global stage, I’ve trekked around the world playing hundreds of matches on the WTA tour, for China’s Fed Cup team, at the National Games and at several Olympic Games. You’ve always been there for me, supporting me, cheering me on, and encouraging me to reach my potential. Representing China on the tennis court was an extraordinary privilege and a true honor. Having the unique opportunity to effectively bring more attention to the sport of tennis in China and all over Asia is something I will cherish forever. But in sport, just like in life, all great things must come to an end. 2014 has become one of the most significant years in my career and my life. This year was full of amazing highlights, which included winning my second Grand Slam singles title at the Australian Open and sharing the extraordinary experience with my country, my team, my husban ...

Lest We Forget: Arthur Robert Ashe, Jr., becomes first Black man to win Wimbledon... On July 5, 1975, Arthur Ashe defeated the heavily favored Jimmy Connors to become the first Black man ever to win Wimbledon, the most coveted championship in tennis. Arthur Ashe began playing tennis as a boy in his hometown of Richmond, Virginia. After winning a tennis scholarship to UCLA, Ashe was taken under the wing of tennis star Pancho Gonzales, who recognized the young player’s potential. In 1968, Ashe became the first black man to win the U.S. Open. Two years later, he captured the Australian Open for his second Grand Slam title. Over the next seven years, Ashe won his share of tournaments, but no more majors, and, frustrated, he set his sights on victory at Wimbledon, one of the most celebrated championships in tennis. Arthur Ashe was 31 years old in 1975, and seemingly well past his prime, so his advancement to the 1975 Wimbledon finals came as somewhat of a surprise to the tennis establishment. While Ashe’s ...

Gentleman's Wimbledon 2014 singles and doubles seeds as well as seeding formula used by Wimbledon. Djokovic Named Top Seed For Wimbledon, Defending Champion Murray Third Seed Wimbledon, England by ATP Staff Novak Djokovic , the 2011 titlist, has been named top seed for The Championships on Wednesday. Rafael Nadal , who clinched his 14th Grand Slam championship at Roland Garros two weeks ago and is currently No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, is No. 2 seed. Nadal's seeding was influenced by his first-round loss to Steve Darcis at Wimbledon last year and his opening-round exit to Dustin Brown at the Gerry Weber Open last week. Defending champion Andy Murray is third seed, while fourth seed Roger Federer is aiming to capture his eighth Wimbledon title. Stan Wawrinka, this year's Australian Open champion, has been named the No. 5 seed. It means that Wawrinka could meet Djokovic, Nadal or Murray in the quarter-finals.

SERENA, Venus Williams HAVE BEEN OUTCLASS FROM THE French Open: Serena and Venus Williams could have met in the third round at Roland Garros, but, surprisingly, neither made it out of round two on Wednesday. After Venus Williams was eliminated by Slovakia's Anna Schmiedlova in three sets on Chatrier Court to start the second round, top-seeded Serena Williams was stunned by Spain's Garbine Muguruza. Schmiedlova, in her second French Open and fifth Grand Slam event, pulled off a 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory over Venus for her first-ever win against a top-30 opponent. The shocker then came about an hour later on Court Lenglen, as Muguruza took full advantage of an abnormally sloppy Serena in a 6-2, 6-2 triumph. Muguruza's best result in five previous Grand Slam events was a fourth-round loss to Agnieszka Radwanska at the Australian Open earlier this year. It wasn't Serena's earliest exit at Roland Garros. She was bounced in the first round two years ago by Frenchwoman Virginie Razzano, then rebounded by completely ...

The Australian Open champion lost to Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 4-6, 7-5, 2-6, 0-6 and dished up 62 unforced errors. Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer easily progressed to the second round each recording straight sets wins. On the women's side Maria Sharapova continued her great form on clay with a 6-1, 6-2 thumping over compatriot Ksenia Pervak. Defending champion Serena Williams also progressed with a win over French youngster Alize Lim. Aussie fans will be pleased as Sam Stosur won her first round clash but Ash Barty and Nick Kyrgios unfortunately bowed out. :)

A versatile player, Novak Djokovic has won six Grand Slam titles, including three in a superlative 2011 season that saw him capture 10 tournament titles overall, post an ATP-best 70-6 record and seize the No. 1 ranking. In 2012, The world No. 1 added to his legacy in fighting back from a 2-4 fifth-set deficit to defeat Rafal Nadal, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-7 (5), 7-5, and capture his third Australian Open championship in the longest Grand Slam final in history — a five hour, 53-minute epic. It was Djokovic's seventh straight win over Nadal and came after his five-set triumph over Andy Murray in the semifinals, marking the first time he had won back-to-back five-set matches. Djokovic became the fifth man in the Open Era to win three straight majors, joining Nadal, Roger Federer, Pete Sampras and Rod Laver.  The top-seeded Serbian beat Andy Murray, 6-1, 7-6, to collect his third career Miami title without surrendering a set.

Padma Shri Boniface hopes to compete at 2016 Rio Paralympics PTI | Jan 26, 2014, 05.51 PM IST BANGALORE: After being chosen for the prestigious Padma Shri award, wheelchair tennis star Boniface Prabhu on Sunday hoped to get clearance from the Paralympic Committee of India (PCI) to compete in the 2016 Rio Paralympics.

PCI is the body responsible for selecting athletes to represent India at the Paralympic Games and other international athletic meets. After participating at Atlanta Paralympics in 1996, Boniface has not played in any of the paralympics ever since, despite being the highest-ranked Indian player.

Crystal ball: the men Sunday, 26 January, 2014 There are few global sports that have had the predictability of men’s tennis in the past decade, where the ‘Big Four’ of Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have largely dominated the majors. But Stanislas Wawrinka’s title run at this year’s Australian Open shows that while the afore-mentioned quartet are sure to be major factors in every tournament they contest, the door is now ajar for other players to make moves. With his take-down of Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals and Rafael Nadal in the final in Melbourne, the eighth-seeded Wawrinka became the first man to defeat the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds at a Grand Slam since Sergi Bruguera did it at Roland Garros in 1993. Coming into last season, Wawrinka was on the verge of being an afterthought at the age of 27. But after a five-set loss to Djokovic in Melbourne 12 months ago that many thought was the match of the year, he worked doubly hard, began to develop faith in his shots ...

"Rafael Nadal" beat Roger Federer in straight sets to advance to the Australian Open final[2014]. Nadal is now second on the list of players reaching Grand Slam finals, joining Ivan Lendl on 19 -- Federer leads the list with 24. Another Grand Slam title would lift Nadal to equal second on the all-time list with Pete Sampras, who was in the crowd for the match. "I tried a few things ... then again, Rafa does a good job of neutralizing you," Federer said. "So I guess at times I couldn't quite do what I wanted to do, but that's because of Rafa."
Sania Mirza stands just one win away from clinching her third Mixed Doubles Grand Slam title after the Indian and her Romanian partner Horia Tecau entered the Australian Open final with a come-from-behind win on Friday.
On this the day of the women's final at the Australian Open Tennis on ABC Grandstand local radio this afternoon Debbie Spillane is throwing out a question that comes around regularly with regards tennis. Should women play over the best of five sets in the Grand Slams? If so, why? If not, why not?
Rafael Nadal powered past Roger Federer to reach the Australian Open final and maintain his dominance over the 17-time Grand Slam champion.The world number one came through 7-6 7-4 6-3 6-3 and goes on to face Federers compatriot, Stanislas Wawrinka, for the title on Sunday.And the Spaniar
If Rafael Nadal wins the Australian Open, he'll tie Pete Sampras for 2nd all-time in Grand Slam titles with 14 (3 behind Roger Federer's record of 17). He'll also be just the 3rd men's tennis player all-time to win all four majors twice. And he'll likely win the French Open for the 9th time this year putting him just two behind Federer's record. Hard to call Federer the greatest of all-time if he ends up not even being the best of his own era.
So the singles finals are now set at the Australian Open. Li Na vs. Dominika Cibulkova for the women's title and Stanislas Wawrinka Official vs. Rafa Nadal for the men's crown. Who are your picks to win the first Grand Slam titles of 2014?
Here are some facts and stats about Raven and his partner Eric . everything you want to know! • Butorac/Klaasen are through to their first Grand Slam final in their first appearance at a major together. • This is Butorac/Klaasen’s 6th tournament together.

Pablo Cuevas/Horacio Zeballos). • Prior to coming here Butorac/Klaasen lost to Jamie Murray/John Peers in the 1st round at Brisbane and reached the semifinals at Auckland (l.

Blistering Nadal bursts Federer's bubble as Spaniard plays through the pain to reach Aussie Open final. Rafael Nadal put himself in sight of making yet more history as a brutally effective performance abruptly halted Roger Federer's revival at the Australian Open. The 27-year-old Spaniard is one victory away from becoming the first player in the modern era to win each Grand Slam twice after beating the great Swiss 7-6, 6-3, 6-4 in their semi-final. Watched by two all-time greats, Rod Laver and Pete Sampras, he knocked over another by registering his fifth consecutive win over Federer. Not even the continuing problems with blisters on the palm of his left hand could divert him from his task, and they are unlikely to stop him winning Sunday's final against the tournament's surprise package Stanislas Wawrinka, over who he has a 12-0 career record. A win would put him level with Sampras on 14 Grand Slam titles. A year ago Nadal was still waiting to make his comeback from long-term knee problems, yet here is, ...
Stanislas Wawrinka has beaten Tomas Berdych 6-3, 6-7 (1), 7-6 (3) and 7-6 (4) in 3 hours and 31 minutes at the Australian Open and in so doing reaches his first Grand Slam final.
I just woke up in Melbourne, Australia which means I have a conference call in 10 minutes and it is also the day I get to see Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal LIVE in the Australian Open semifinals!

Stanislas Wawrinka reached the men's singles final at the Australian Open in his 36th participation in a Major. Only one player in Open Era needed more attempts to reach a GS final. David Ferrer reached the final at Roland Garros last year in his 42nd Grand Slam. Only one player has needed more than 36 attempts to WIN a Grand Slam. Goran Ivanisevic prevailed at Wimbledon in 2001 in an incredible 48th shot at glory.

Rafa's road meets Rising Star Wednesday, 22 January, 2014 By Alexandra Willis Share this Rafael Nadal has rather a lot on his plate at the moment. Blisters on his racket hand, broken shoelaces, time violations, learning new words. And the pressure of expectation. If Nadal wins this title, his second Australian Open, not only will he equal Pete Sampras’s total haul of 14 Grand Slam singles titles - which not so long ago was deemed to be an unpassable benchmark - he will also become the first player to complete the career Grand Slam, twice over. But what drives Nadal forwards each day is not records or requirements. It is his extraordinary motivation to be the best he can be. That if he just fights harder, he will come out on top. “When I am not playing that well, I run and I fight for every point as I did today,” Nadal remarked after his hair-splitting three-set win over Kei Nishikori. “I go on court trying to play my best every day, trying to play aggressive. Some days you play better, some days y ...

With Novak Djokovic out of the Australian Open, will we see a first-time Grand Slam winner crowned? via
Champion run comes to an end •Djokovic was bidding to follow Roy Emerson in winning four or more titles in a row at the Australian Open •He was also seeking to win his fifth Australian Open (only Emerson has five or more) •His last defeat was in the 2013 US Open final against Rafael Nadal •He had won his last 13 matches against top-10 opposition •The Serb had not dropped a set in reaching the last eight •Djokovic was seeking to reach his 15th consecutive Grand Slam semi-final •Wawrinka's last win over Djokovic was back in 2006
Back when tennis was almost bearable to watch: On this date in 1990 - John Mcenroe was disqualified and expelled for throwing a tantrum and using abusive language at an official while leading Mikael Pernfors in the Australian Open. He was the first person to be thrown out of a Grand Slam in 27 years. He was fined $6,500 and kicked out of the tournament.
MELBOURNE, Australia - Eugenie Bouchard is the first Canadian to reach a Grand Slam semifinal in 30 years after a stunning upset of Ana Ivanovic at the Australian Open.
Again interesting results yesterday from the Australian Open as 19-year old Canadian Eugenie Bouchard wins against Ana Ivanovic. Eugenie, the slight underdog, looked very comfortable in her first Grand Slam quarterfinal playing aggressive and going toe-to-toe with Ana. She had more reserves left in the 3rd set while Ana started making a few more mistakes than usual. The other match a little more as expected - Li Na, easily beating Pennetta, has been getting stronger from match-to-match and looks more than ready for the semis. A little surprised to wake up to the result of Wawrinka beating Djokovic in 5 sets. Going into the match Djokovic was clearly the favorite - the Australian Open champion of the last 3 years with a 25 match winning streak in Melbourne and having beat Wawrinka in the past 14 matches. But Wawrinka backed up his great results of the past 15 months. Sounded like the 4 hour battle was an incredible match. In the other men’s match – Berdych, one of Andre’s favorite players to ...

It is one thing to be named the WTA’s 'Most Improved Player' and another to bring that accolade into a major and prove that you are deserving of the award. Romanian Simona Halep did that and more on Monday when she knocked out former No. 1 Jelena Jankovic 6-4 3-6 6-0 to move into her first Grand Slam quarterfinal at the Australian Open. It wasn't until the second half of last season that the 22-year-old showed herself to be a potentially elite player, when she won six tournaments and reached the year-end No. 11 ranking. Given that she had never won a title before she won a tournament at Nurnberg in July and then managed to grab five more before the season concluded in Sofia, her progress has been remarkable. A strong young woman who can rip the ball off both wings, Halep had been considered a mentally questionable competitor, but is much more self-secure now and came into the tournament without a coach. She owns victories over a slew of elite players including Agnieszka Radwanska, Petra Kvitova, Carolin ...
MELBOURNE, Australia -- The powerful serve that carried Serena Williams to 25 consecutive wins suddenly became the target of Ana Ivanovic's attack in a major fourth-round upset at the Australian Open. Williams had a back complaint she'd tried to keep secret before Sunday but Ivanovic noticed almost immediately that her serve wasn't as fast as she'd expected, and she started taking big swipes at it. The No. 14-seeded Ivanovic ended Williams' bid for a sixth Australian and 18th Grand Slam title with a 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 victory that took the hottest of favorites out of contention at Melbourne Park and opened up one side of the women's draw. "It's not easy playing such a champion ... but she is also just a human," said Ivanovic, who beat Venus Williams in the final at Auckland, New Zealand, earlier this month. "I just went out there swinging." Williams hadn't lost a match since August, and went 78-4 in 2013. She came into the fourth round with those 25 straight wins, the second-longest streak of her career, and i ...

A pair of doddering 32-year-olds will give it a go in the hot cauldron of Rod Laver Arena on Tuesday. Lleyton Hewitt is playing his 18th consecutive Australian Open and Roger Federer his 57th Grand Slam event in a row, breaking the record he shared with Wayne Ferreira of South Africa. Hewitt made his tournament debut in another millennium – 1997. “It’s the only time I’ve never played on Rod Laver Arena,” he laughed, “my only singles match on an outside court.” ‘Rusty’ from Adelaide is 30-17 at Melbourne Park and has only once made it past the round of 16 – losing the 2005 final to Marat Safin. His victory over Federer in the Brisbane International final two weeks ago has been a boost. “My ball striking at the moment is as good as it’s been in a long time,” he said. Hewitt is 3-3 head-to-head with this afternoon’s opponent, 29-year-old Andreas Seppi, but the Italian has not won a match in 2014, while Hewitt is 5-0. Federer, 4-1 this year, is no longer the force he was circa 2004 ...

This is a little late but I've been looking at my predictions from the beginning of the year for the Grand Slam championships this year and they've been surprisingly accurate.   2013 Australian Open: Novak Djokovic defeats Andy Murray. (Correct)   2013 French Open: Rafael Nadal defeats Roger Federer. (Correct champion, incorrect runner up)   2013 Wimbledon: Andy Murray defeats Novak Djokovic. (Correct)   2013 US Open: Andy Murray defeats Juan Martin Del Potro. (???)   I also predicted the year end top four players would be as such: 1. Novak Djokovic 2. Andy Murray 3. Roger Federer 4. Rafael Nadal   So so far I've been pretty accurate with the mistake of the French Open runner up being David Ferrer instead of Federer and it seems very unlikely Federer will make it back up to three before the year ends but I'm pretty proud of the Australian Open and Wimbledon predictions. My next prediction is that the World Tour Finals will be a close match between Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic which Murray will win ...
Andy Murray: A Legend? No. Roger Federer- 17 Grand Slam Titles Pete Sampras- 14 Grand Slam Titles Rafael Nadal- 12 Grand Slam titles Andre Agassi- 7 Grand Slam titles and an Olympic gold medal. Not to mention: William Renshaw, Richard Sears, John Mcenroe, Jimmy Conors, Gustavo Kuerten- 3 French Open titles, Rod Laver and Roy Emerson and Boris Becker. Novak Djokovic has six majors including four Australian Open titles. Andy Murray may have ended the drought, but he played a painful, sad and pathetic final. I expected a five-set match and felt cheated that it was over in three. I hate matches that are over in three. Djokovic had an off day and he wasn't in the match. I expected more from the final. I wanted Djokovic to win and I'm still upset that he lost. I have no interest in singing the praises of a man who was nothing more than lucky.
16:00 Janowicz - Murray Tip: Over 35.5 1.72 Today it is played by two semi-finals match at the men's Wimbledon, and the first semi-final meet Djokovic - Del Potro, while in the second semi-final home hope Murray will try to justify the role of favorites and that there is a new Grand Slam finals. My tip is that the duel between Murray and Janowicz be more than 35 gems. Polish tennis player Janowicz is certainly the most pleasant surprise of this year's Wimbledon despite finals Parisa this is his greatest performance ever. Janowicz is normally 22 player in the world and the fans of tennis in BIH was the center of attention since the recent completion of the ATP tournament in Halle in lost bh players Mirza Basic. This year's Grand Slam tournaments came to the third round, so at the Australian Open defeated Almagro 0-3, and Roland Garossu was defeated Wawrinka. Until now played two mutually challenge Murray and Janowicz and a win with both tennis players. Murray was better 2009th The match at the Davis Cup wi ...
Couple of days back, I read a fantastic, intriguing and emotional note by Ritwik on the eve of the exit of Federer in the 2nd Round of his much owned Grand Slam, Wimbledon. I write emotional only because of the state of mind with which it was written else it was a neat piece with amazing stats for a neutral person. Without divulging more on that particular incident, I am here just to dig deep into what goes into the minds of fans when their heroes fall.   Falling here is a very relative term. It is just the kind of space these heroes create for themselves that the magnitude of their failure increases many times than that of a similar “humane”.  We just can’t see them failing. We want them to leave the arena with the same image that they have imprinted in their fans, the image of the invincible, the reliable, the Hero.   Let’s talk about this with two sporting heroes: Federer and Sachin. I still remember when Federer cried at the 2009 Australian Open after being defeated by Nadal. It was indeed ...

Is a spanish professional tennis player who has won 12 Grand Slam singles titles; eight at the French Open (Roland Garros), two at Wimbledon, one at the Australian Open and one at the US Open. He is ranked number five in the world right now. He plays very well on clay courts and is considerate the best tennis player in the history on clay.
Nadal seeded fifth at Wimbledon Wimbledon, England (Sports Network) - Even though he's the hottest player in men's tennis, reigning French Open champion and two-time Wimbledon titlist Rafael Nadal received only the No. 5 seed at Wimbledon 2013, which will commence Monday at the All England Club. Nadal's fifth seeding means he could meet top-seeded Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic, last year's Wimbledon runner-up and second seed Andy Murray or reigning champ and third seed Roger Federer as early as the quarterfinals at the world's only grass-court Grand Slam event.
Women's Semi Finals Today Predictions: Pre Tournament favorite Serena Williams who has won 29 matches in a row (count em!) will overpower Italian Sara Errani in 2 sets. Errani upset hard hitting Sam Stosur in last year's semis, but Serena has the upper hand here with a 5-0 record against Errani. In a more dramatic encounter sparks will be flying and the grunt-o-metre will be working overtime when French Open holder Maria Sharapova comes face-to-face with Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka. There is no love lost between these two women. I predict Victoria Azarenka will tip Maria Sharapova in a tight 3 set match. Azarenka has been the more consistent player the past 3 weeks and she is looking to capture her second consecutive Grand Slam title.
