The first big sport event of the year 2015 , Australian Open. Nadal and Youzhny on court , Rod Laver Arena.
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. It was Djokovic's 30th career title, including his 11th Masters crown, tying him with Pe ...
Post Australian Open interview Rafa goes on to say the crowd has been very supportive of him and he likes the way they treat him. (Despite the fact that he was booed at during the finals). Then I go back to the presentation video and try to observe Rafa on what is he wanting to say in totality. And it gives a feeling that it was the crowd he was playing for who have showed him their respectful love. He was playing for the sponsors who have put in so much of money to get him here. He was playing to finish it and not shakehand in between and end a match. He wanted to finish it for the ticket buyers, for the television audience around the globe. And in the games' true sense he finished it very well. It's the best he could put up in prevailing condition. It's not that he has not done wonders at Rod Laver Arena and brought the crowd on the edge of their seat, as well as on their feet. It's not that he is not going to do it again..it's probably much easier to be a spectator than enter the mind of someone who is ...
This Sunday will almost surely put Rafael Nadal's mark of Slam Championships at 14, tying the immortal Pete Sampras and putting him a mere three titles from catching Roger Federer for the all time lead, and this is something most people are choosing not to discuss openly in public, most likely due to the fact that Federer is still playing competitively. With respects to Roy Emerson, Rod Laver, Björn Borg, and Jimmy Conners, most experts would rank these three, in some order, as tennis's all-time great players. However, a further review would put the order in a rather surprising fashion. First, a look at Slam wins. Federer has won the Australian Open four times, Roland Garros once, Wimbledon seven times, and the US Open five times, for a total of 17 Slam victories. Sampras has won the Australian twice, never the French, seven Wimbledons, and five US Opens, for a total of 14. Assuming Nadal wins on Sunday as the heavy favorite against even a confident Wawrinka, he would be the holder of two Australian Open ...

Should he defeat Wawrinka for his second Australian Open title, Rafa Nadal will become only the third man along with Australians Roy Emerson and Rod Laver to win each of the four Grand Slam titles twice !
Aussie Open I used to pull all-nighters to watch the tournament down under. Now it is a TV-nap cycle. FOX SPORTS. Prior to my first nap I watched the one and only Mike Kosta on his afternoon national show. He is on a panel of six with the most famous star being Regis Philbin. Kosta spent a considerable amount of time training with me following his days playing under Craig Tiley at the University of Illinois. It seemed like two years to me but if you ask Kosta, a professional comedian, he might tell you it seemed like twenty years. On yesterday's show, he plugged Australian Open doubles finalist Raven Klaasen. The two of them won a Futures together. On air, the tall and good-looking Kosta, who may make it to the movies, shared how they split eleven hundred dollars and how this weekend Raven has the chance to split six hundred thousand. I started working with Raven when he was seventeen. After six months of no competition because he had to have his entire game revamped, I was looking for a doubles partner f ...
Li Na has won the 2014 Australian Open crown beating 7-6 6-0 over Dominika Cibulkova at Rod Laver Arena.
AUSTRALIAN OPEN: GAME, SET AND MATCH Li 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 Cibulkova Li's backhand has been something to behold today and after 95 minutes, even her forehand is starting to motor. She looks unstoppable, opening up a 0-30 lead on the Cibulkova serve. Two points later and the Chinese brings up two championship points. The crowd begin to cheer in anticipation before quiet descends on Rod Laver Arena. The first goes wanting, as Li sends a forehand long but the second is hers as Cibulkova makes her 27th unforced error of the match. Li Na is the 2014 Australian Open champion.

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, ...
Catch the Rod Laver interview from Generation Better Day at the Australian Open on Channel 7 tonight between 7-7:30pm before Rafa Nadal takes on Roger Federer!
NADAL vs FEDERER It will be another epic game today at the Rod Laver Arena when two most exciting tennis players collide in the Men's Division second semifinal match. Federer is back to his winning form as he toppled his opponents one by one on his way to the semis, losing only one set to Murray in their quarterfinal match. Nadal, as expected, is a formidable force that will crush anybody who blocks his way enroute to the finals. The former has won 4 Australian Open titles, the latter only 1. If records have to be based, it would be a no-brainer to say Federer should win again. But Lo and Behold, here comes a man who is younger than he is, much hungrier than he is, far stronger than he is. Let's admit it. Federer is so fluid and graceful on court that for him, it's just a walk in the park to finish a match in 3 sets. It's not about his lack of stamina that makes him want a short match, it's just how good he is. Tennis is synonymous to Federer! Fanatics say nothing is like him...no one's as good as h ...
Still on a high from having a brilliant time at the Australian Open tennis. Watching it now at home but not as exciting as Rafa, Roger and Djokovic. Looks like it will be won or lost on who makes the least mistakes.Hope Wawrinka wins. More than impressed with the whole experience and seeing Rafa and Roger train and play. Awesome tennis. Got my face painted with RF on one side and Rafa on the other (it was a terrible job but what can you do? I couldn't see what she was doing! I asked for the Rafa Raging Bull logo he wears and I ended up with a huge bull on my face! The RF logo for Roger didn't look great either but everyone knew who I support.) I don't know who to go for in their semi final tomorrow night. By the way, that's Stefan Edberg with Roger, and we saw Rod Laver in the arena each night and didn't realize until I looked at the photos that Todd McKearney was there too, sitting behind Boris Becker who coaches Djokovic. Also saw Ana Ivanovic, Li Na, Grigor Dimitrov, Azarenka, Genie Bouchard, Aggie Raw ...

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.
Grand SlamS : 4 Slams . Along with the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open, the French Open is one of the four historic tennis tournaments which make up the legendary Grand Slam. The term dates back to 1933, when Australian Jack Crawford managed to win the Australian Internationals, Roland Garros and Wimbledon. With the US Internationals fast approaching, New York Times journalist John Kieran wrote that if Crawford won this fourth title, "he would achieve on court the equivalent of a countered and vulnerable Grand Slam in bridge". Crawford lost in the final to Britain's Fred Perry, but the name was to go down in history. Very few players have won the Grand Slam; Donald Budge (1938) and Rod Laver (1962 and 1969) are the only men to win all four tournaments in the same year, and Margaret Court (1970), Maureen Connolly (1953) and Steffi Graf (1988) the only women. The task is even more difficult nowadays with the four tournaments all being played on different surfaces: Plexicushion in Australia, cla . ...

That's Simply Superb! Defending champion Novak Djokovic produced one of the best performances of his career Thursday as he destroyed fourth seed David Ferrer in straight sets to reach the Australian Open final. The Serbian world number one was simply on a different level to the Spaniard, reeling off a staggering 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 victory in just 1hr 29min in front of a stunned Rod Laver Arena crowd. Djokovic will now be considered the raging favorite to win his fourth Australian title in Sunday's decider against either Roger Federer or Andy Murray, who play their semi-final on Friday. Djokovic was in irresistible form, breaking the hapless Ferrer's serve seven times and hitting 30 winners with just 16 unforced errors in an awesome display.

Serena Williams admitted her surprise at the one-sided nature of her win over Maria Kirilenko in the Australian Open fourth round. The five-time Australian Open champion took just 57 minutes to wrap up a 6-2 6-0 victory over the Russian 14th seed on the Rod Laver Arena to set up a quarter-final against fellow American Sloane Stephens. And Williams, who stretched her unbeaten run to 20 matches with Monday’s win, conceded that she did not expect such an easy ride. “I was surprised,” said Williams, who hit 22 winners en route to victory. “I felt like Maria played really well. I was just trying to play well, just to keep up. “I’m really out there just doing the best I can, just fighting for everything. “I think with that attitude I’m just trying to stay in the tournament just to stay alive.” Kirilenko admitted that she found it difficult to find her rhythm against the 31-year-old 15-time Grand Slam winner. “I tried to do something special tonight, that’s why I made so many mistakes.

Tennis - Australian Open Federer coasts to win over Raonic Roger Federer reached another Grand Slam quarter-final with a routine 6-4 7-6 6-2 win over Milos Raonic at the Australian Open. Federer defused Milos Raonic's serve before clinically despatching the Canadian to reach his 35th straight Grand Slam last-eight tie. The rampant Swiss gave up only five points on his first serve and hit 34 winners in the one-sided two-hour contest against the 13th seed on a cool Rod Laver Arena. Federer wrapped up the first set when Raonic netted a volley, the second with a brilliant forehand down the line to win the tie-break 7-4, and the third with another big forehand winner. The 17-times Grand Slam champion, who is chasing a fifth title at Melbourne Park, will meet seventh seeded Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarters. Reuters - 21/1/13 19:49

I got the perfect seat for the Australian Open! Court side and in between Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer. As the first game's about to start, Roger held my hand and started praying and so I whispered, "You'll do great." Nole then grabbed me and ran away from the court yelling, "I don't wanna see this!" So I tried to convince him that he will be just fine... So on our way back to Rod Laver Arena, I heard Hugo barked. Finally realized that I am in Sacramento and was not at Melbourne at all. Thanks to iPhone's Do Not Disturb mode - cool dreams uninterrupted! LOL!

Roger Federer Facts Encyclopedia THE GREAT Roger Federer: Greatest of all TIME. Roger Federer has come closer to tennis perfection than any player that’s graced centre court and while he can’t boast a calendar-year Grand Slam, he’s amassed many other records that are unsurpassed. Rod Laver and Roger Federer have such respect and genuine affection for one another – who can forget Federer dissolving into tears when Laver presented him with the Australian Open trophy in 2006? – that neither would begrudge the other the Greatest of All Time (GOAT) gong. Nor would their legion of fans. Both have enriched the game more than they have enriched themselves. But there are no draws in tennis, even for the title of all-time greatness. From my privileged courtside seat, the Fed Express just pips the Rockhampton Rocket. GOAT debates are as futile as they are fun. Futile because past and present legends can never face-off in their glorious, youthful pomp to settle the argument. And such has been the transforma ...
