Australian Open top 8 seeds split the same way as in the World Tour Finals 2015 🔮
Excited though he was at his own quarter-final win on Wednesday night, it’s entirely possible that Roger Federer was even more delighted for countryman and good friend Stanislas Wawrinka, whom he cheered to victory over Novak Djokovic the night before. Unbeaten as yet in 2014, Wawrinka opened the season with victory at the Aircel Chennai Open before edging three-time defending champion Djokovic in five sets on Tuesday night to reach his first Australian Open semi-final. It comes hot on the heels of his first major semi-final appearance at the US Open and his debut at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in November. It leaves Switzerland on the edge of its seat at the very real possibility of the first all-Swiss Grand Slam final at Melbourne Park. “The moment you start thinking about that we're taking the same flight home,” cautioned Federer. “I'm worried about my match clearly, but I'll definitely watch his first. Hopefully he can make it. Then he can put the pressure on me that way. Excited though ...
MARRERO/VERDASCO OPEN MELBOURNE BID Third seeds David Marrero and Fernando Verdasco survived a scare in their first-round contest at the Australian Open on Friday, rallying from a set down to defeat Australians James Duckworth and Matthew Ebden 3-6, 6-3, 6-2. The Barclays ATP World Tour Finals doubles champions reached the quarter-finals at Melbourne Park last year (l. to Haase/Sijsling) and are looking to win their first major title. There was disappointment for their countrymen and third seeds, Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez, though, as they were beaten in the second round by Max Mirnyi and Mikhail Youzhny 4-6, 6-3, 7-6(3). Granollers and Lopez were not the only seeds to be upset. Yuki Bhambri and Michael Venus defeated 10th seeds Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau 6-4, 6-4 in the second round. Fifth seeds and 2012 Australian Open champions Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek made a strong start to their campaign, defeating Czech pairing Lukas Dlouhy and Lukas Rosol 6-4, 6-1. Fourth seeds Ivan Dodig and Ma ...
TENNIS Andy Murray can be competitive immediately at next month's Australian Open if he has fully recovered from back surgery, says John Mcenroe. The Briton had surgery in September and has not played competitively since. "If he's healthy, he is going to be one of the guys who can go the distance [in Australia]," said seven-time Grand Slam champion McEnroe. But Tim Henman said Murray must "remain patient" and not rush his comeback if he wants to be a force in 2014. The first Grand Slam of 2014 starts in Australia on 13 January. Murray's lingering back problem forced him to miss the French Open in May, but he recovered to become the first Briton to win the Wimbledon men's singles title since Fred Perry in 1936. In September, his defence of his US Open title ended in the quarter-finals, but he went on to enjoy success with his GB Davis Cup team-mates, who secured their place in the 2014 World Group. Murray, 26, then underwent surgery and missed the recent ATP World Tour Finals in London as he recovered. McE ...

Tennis - Australian Open Rafael Nadal withdraws from Melbourne Former world number one Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from the Australian Open due to the illness that saw him miss this week's Mubadala Tennis Championship in the U.A.E. "My knee is much better and the rehabilitation process has gone well as predicted by the doctors, but this virus didn't allow me to practise this past week," Nadal, 26, said. "Therefore I am sorry to announce that I will not play in Doha and the Australian Open, as we had initially scheduled." The Spanish number one and world number four has not played competitive tennis since his surprise second-round Wimbledon exit to Lukas Rosol in June. He was since diagnosed with a partial tear of the patella tendon and inflammation in his left knee and was unable to defend his Olympic title at the London Games. The 11-times Grand-Slam champion also missed the US Open and season-ending World Tour Finals before returning to the practice court on November 20. But he withdrew from the exhibiti ...
Novak Djokovic put a firm stamp on his position as world number one with a stunning victory over Roger Federer in the ATP World Tour Finals. The Serb won 7-6 (8-6) 7-5 to add the season-ending title to his Australian Open victory and top ranking. He needed two hours and 14 minutes to take two sets in a match of dramatic swings in momentum. It is the second time Djokovic has won the ATP finale, following his triumph in Shanghai four years ago. "I was just trying to hang in there," said Djokovic. "It's not the first time that Roger started so well against me. I've experienced before his aggression, really trying to put his mark on the match." He added: "Whenever I needed to come up with some really good shots - really focus myself and get every ball back in the court - I did that, so I cannot be more thrilled than now." Federer was attempting to become the first man since Ivan Lendl 25 years ago to win a hat-trick of season-ending championships, and his seventh overall. "Maybe there's a bit of regret becaus ...
Tennis has changed in the last few years with racket technology and changing standards in player fitness, among other things, making it difficult to label any single player as the greatest of all time. While each player has contributed to the game inhis own way and faced different opponents and circumstances, some have been more impressive than others. Here are 10 of the greatest male tennis players of all time. 1. Roger Federer - Federer tops the list as a 16-time Grand Slam winner, and six-time ATP World Tour Finals winner. The Swiss star spent 285 weeks at the No.1 spot in the rankings.
