The six-time Grand Slam champion had to draw on all the experience gleaned in 23 Grand Slam semifinals to get the better of 23-year-old Dimitrov. The Bulgarian was on a roll after winning the pre-Wimbledon tournament at Queen's Club and downing third-seeded champion Andy Murray in the quarterfinals.

But it was Djokovic who found the extra grit to prevail, saving a set point in the ninth game of the fourth set and three in the tiebreak before taking the match with a cross-court forehand winner.

Roger Federer's 5 Most Unbreakable Records Federer has regained his spot at the top of the world rankings and now has the all-time record for most weeks at the top.

Five such records in particular are unlike anything else accomplished in the sport of tennis It is a testament to Federer's consistency and longevity that his all-time record of 17 Grand Slam wins is fifth on this list. His Grand Slam wins record is often viewed as the most important to the game and the one that sets him apart as the greatest of all time. While this is true, it is not his most dominant record.

From the Garros 2014 blog. "And that's a wrap folks! WHAT A MATCH. That's the first three-set final in 13 years, and just two minutes shy of the all-time Roland Garros women's record of 3:04, set by Steffi Graf and Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario. Sharapova was brilliant in clinching her fifth Grand Slam title in her fourth straight three-set match, while Halep was equally impressive in her first ever major final. That match will take a lot to beat in terms of quality and drama. But no doubt Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will bring a similar quality to the court for tomorrow's men's final! We look forward to you all joining us then :)
The French Open 2014 has reached the finals stage. The main attraction of the finals though is the greatest rivalry in modern tennis - World No1. Rafael Nadal Vs World No.2 Novak Djokovic. The duo have clashed for 41 times (the most in the Open Era), with Nadal leading 22-19 over Novak. As we know, the Spaniard is the KING OF CLAY, and has won 8 of the 9 French Opens that he participated. Out of 61 matches played till date, he has lost jus a single match against Robin Soderling in 2009. So, an amazing 60-1 W-L record. Can the Serbian tame the raging Spanish bull who is lookin for his 14th career Grand Slam and 9th French Open title??..

FITNESS DOES NOT EQUAL HEALTH Many people confuse the words "fitness" and "health". You can be healthy without being fit, and you can definitely be fit without being healthy. In the early 1980's Jim Fixx, author of the best-selling book The Complete Book Of Running, got tens of thousands of people running, making himself a guru in the running world. In July of 1984, at the young age of 54, he dropped dead of a heart attack while jogging in Vermont. Although he was fit, he was not very healthy. I remember having to climb 40 flights of stairs with a couple of vegans that were huffing and puffing after only 20 flights. They were extremely healthy, but not very fit. In order to truly experience wellness, one must be healthy AND fit! Fitness and health many times go hand in hand, making it nearly impossible to be one without the other. No story better exhibits this than that of six-time Grand Slam champion tennis player, Novak Djokovic. After being extremely sick throughout his tennis career, with doctors clue ...
Novak Djokovic continued his bid for a first Roland Garros title, which would complete his set of all four Grand Slam championship titles. The second seed improved to 22-0 in sets against Jeremy Chardy, when he beat the Frenchman for the ninth straight time 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 on Wednesday afternoon for a place in the third round. “I managed to play some good tennis and [I am] already feeling like I'm improving my game as the tournament progresses,” said Djokovic. “I managed to make him play an extra shot. I managed to stay solid from the baseline and I think that forced him to make a lot of unforced errors, which definitely helped me to win in straight sets." Djokovic has a 33-match winning streak against French opponents dating back to November 2010 at the BNP Paribas Masters (l. to Llodra). Djokovic will next play No. 25 seed Marin Cilic, a winner of two ATP World Tour titles this year, who fired 49 winners - including 19 aces - past Tobias Kamke in a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-0 win mid-afternoon. “I'm going ...

Federer out to continue revival 23 February By Richard Eaton Dubai – Roger Federer's performance in reaching the semi-final of the Australian Open last month is the first step in a mini-revival of tennis' great legend. This week could see the second. That is the scenario Federer intends pursuing when he returns to the ATP Tour and tries to win back the title at his adopted second home at the Dubai Open. Victories over Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Melbourne will be followed by a chance to challenge Novak Djokovic, the top-seeded titleholder, here. Although the formidable Serb is seeking a record fifth Dubai title, Federer has a better record against Djokovic than against Rafael Nadal, the man who halted him last month, and he feels encouraged by his performances in the first Grand Slam of the year. “I think it has been a very good start to the season for me overall, “ Federer said. “I have played some really good tennis. I still feel my best tennis is ahead of me right now. “So I'm looki ...
Six-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic hopes to overcome his best rival King of Clay Rafael Nadal in the ATP Rankings in 2014 season. Serbian will have to
February 7 2014 Dubai UAE    Juan Martin Del Potro is hoping to do at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships what he once did at the US Open. At one stage the Grand Slams were being dominated by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, but in 2009 he beat them both in New York to break their monopoly and win his first Grand Slam title.   Now, with Federer and Novak Djokovic dominating here in Dubai by claiming the title in nine of the last 11 years, the amiable Argentine is ready to do a repeat of 2009 and put his name on the winners board.   This is his third straight year competing at one of the strongest events staged outside of the Grand Slams, and his two previous visits saw him reach the semi-finals before, ironically, losing to Federer in 2012 and Djokovic in 2013.   With victories last season against Djokovic at Indian Wells and Federer in the Basel final, as well as Nadal in Shanghai, Del Potro knows he has what it takes to beat the best in the world and add a Dubai triumph to his already impressiv ...
Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka claimed his first Grand Slam title in the recently-concluded Australian Open, beating heavyweights like Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.
Hard work helped me – Wawrinka Stanislas Wawrinka has revealed that hard work and confidence has helped him become a Grand Slam winner in Australia. Disbelief appeared to be the 28-year-old’s primary emotion following his 6-3 6-2 3-6 6-3 triumph over a hobbling Rafael Nadal in a dramatic Australian Open final at the weekend. The Swiss was reflecting on his incredible feat on Monday in Melbourne having become the first man to beat Nadal and Novak Djokovic at the same Grand Slam and the first player to defeat the top two in the world since Sergi Bruguera at the French Open in 1993 according to Sky Sports. “It still feels like a dream because it’s a Grand Slam title so it’s something that’s just amazing for me,” Wawrinka said. “It’s just good to wake up with that trophy. I didn’t get much sleep. I was with my team, some friends, family, we celebrated a little bit and enjoyed the moment. We came back late but that’s a good problem to have.” As well as getting his hands on silverware, W ...
Pete Sampras on Rafa: Tennis legend Pete Sampras described Rafael Nadal as "incredible" after watching the world number one live for the first time at the Australian Open. Nadal, 27, faces Stanislas Wawrinka in Sunday's final, and a win will see him equal Sampras's 14 Grand Slam titles. "I think he's incredible," Sampras told BBC Sport. "I saw him play live for the first time on Friday night and the movement he has is incredible." "He's able to adjust his shots on the run. I've never seen anything like it." Sampras, 42, ended his career in 2002 with a record 14 major singles titles, only for Roger Federer to surpass him and amass 17 in his career to date. And Nadal is widely expect to draw level with the American on Sunday when he takes on Federer's fellow Swiss Wawrinka, playing in his first major final. Sampras arrived in Melbourne on Friday in time to see the Spaniard beat Federer in straight sets in the semi-finals. "To see him play - he hits a very heavy ball, serves pretty well, he does everything," ...
His latest triumph advanced Nadal into Sunday’s men’s singles final, where he will face the second-best Swiss tennis player of this generation, after Federer. That is Stanislas Wawrinka, 28, a player now playing the best tennis of his life, a player who knocked out Novak Djokovic earlier this week and bested Tomas Berdych to reach his first-ever Grand Slam final.

Novak Djokovic said he hired Boris Becker to help "give me that mental edge” particularly in Grand Slam finals:
Rafael Nadal has no intention of joining the dizzying coaching merry-go-round which has seen Novak Djokovic hire Boris Becker in just one of a raft of changes ahead of the 2014 season. World number one Nadal has been coached by his Uncle Toni since childhood and it`s a partnership which has brought 13 Grand Slam titles. Djokovic, meanwhile, stunned the sport by hiring Becker, one of a host of former Grand Slam winners from the 1980s and 1990s to be handed new leases of life over the winter. Roger Federer has been hitting with Stefan Edberg, Richard Gasquet has taken on Sergi Bruguera, Marin Cilic has renewed his partnership with Goran Ivanisevic while Kei Nishikori signed up Michael Chang. Undoubtedly, they were moves inspired by Andy Murray`s success with Ivan Lendl which has yielded the 2012 US Open title and 2013 Wimbledon triumph.

Novak Djokovic will focus on adding to his Grand Slam titles in 2014 after victory at the ATP World Tour Finals.
Reaching the semifinals in his first appearance in London crowns an unbelievable year for Stan Wawrinka. 12 months ago, he was 27 and ranked 17 in the world - tennis fans knew he had huge talent, but surely his shot at glory had gone. But in 2013 he reached a Masters 1000 final and played two of the best matches we saw at Grand Slams all year, both against Novak Djokovic - one in the US Open semi-final. Just goes to show it's never too late! And, unlike Tipsarevic last year - Stan doesn't look like being a one-season wonder. If anything, he's got the game to achieve even more in 2014, with a top 5 world ranking and a Grand Slam title in sight! So congratulations to Stan!
TENNIS ANYONE!!! The key to Andy Murray's success: Hot Yoga! Whatever the outcome in Melbourne this morning, Andy Murray can rest assured that he is one of the world's hottest players. And thanks to the remarkable new training programme that helped to turn him into a Grand Slam champion, this is as true off the court as on it. The world No 3 has credited his decision to practise yoga in temperatures of 40C and above for much of his improved performance. He believes the sweaty workout has transformed him both physically and mentally, helping him to compete at the very highest levels. Murray has said of Hot Yoga, the sequence to complete, that: "Until you do it you can't comment on how difficult it is. It's tough. It's also effective, as his win last September in New York over today's rival, Novak Djokovic, showed. The 25-year-old from Dunblane started practicing Hot Yoga five years ago on the advice of his conditioning coach, Matt Little. A number of tennis players have since followed him into the hot stud ...
Serbia’s Novak Djokovic defeated defending champion David Ferrer 7-5, 7-5 on Sunday to win the Paris Masters after a thrilling final at the Bercy arena.   The Spaniard twice served for both sets only for the six-time Grand Slam winner to show his pedigree and break at the crucial moments before holding serve to close out the first set and then the match.   Ferrer fell short of becoming the first player to successfully defend the Paris title while Djokovic took another step towards regaining the number one spot from Rafael Nadal heading to the World Tour Finals.   It was also Djokovic’s 40th ATP title victory, the 15th player to reach this milestone.                       www.english.lakdana.lk

’m not done yet, says Federer 21 October Basel, Switzerland - Roger Federer admitted on Sunday that he made serious errors in his planning which have contributed to a disastrous 2013 campaign, but insisted that retirement is not on his agenda. The 17-time Grand Slam title winner has slumped to number eight in the world, his lowest point in more than a decade, and failed to make a final at any of the four majors, a run of disappointments that has led many in the sport to predict the end of the road for the 32-year-old. The Swiss, who split last week with coach Paul Annacone after more than three years, confessed that he could have done things differently. “I played matches that I should never have played,” said Federer, ahead of his participation in his home Swiss Indoors event which starts on Monday. “I should have left in Indian Wells (last March, with back pain) before the quarter-finals against (fellow Swiss Stanislas) Wawrinka. This summer, I should not have tried to play on clay in Hamburg an ...

Had to copy this. Not checked the validity of any of it, but it looks fun all the same! WAS IT IS ALL ABOUT SEVEN. Andy Murray's win at Wimbledon on Sunday looks to be influenced heavily with the number seven. He won on the 7th day of the 7th month. Murray was playing in his seventh Grand Slam final. He broke world No 1 Novak Djokovic's serve seven times. He was born in 1987, seven days before Djokovic Murray is the first Scot to win a Wimbledon singles title since Harold Mahoney, 117 years ago. Murray won Britain's first male Wimbledon title after 77 years. Virginia Wade won the women's title in, 1977. Victoria Beckham, who was there with David called her daughter Harper Seven, with seven also being David's lucky number. I am sure that among the thousands of fans there that seven has a meaning for them too.
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 ...
Ok so it was 77 years since a British person won Wimbledon, on the seventh day of the seventh month Andy Murray won Wimbledon stopping Novak Djokovic winning his seventh Grand Slam title so it would seem appropriate to have seven songs for Andy.

A second week which had promised back-to-back blockbuster matches after Murray, seven-times champion Roger Federer and 2008 and 2010 winner Rafa Nadal had been thrown together in the same half of the draw, will instead have a distinctly unfamiliar look to it following an unforgettable week of shocks. Gone are Federer, Nadal, Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka - all former world number ones, all Grand Slam champions and who between them own 35 Major trophies. Instead, the second week line-up includes an array of characters who had turned up at the All England Club expecting to play a supporting role but have been thrust into the limelight of a last-16 appearance.

Nadal puts the gentleman in gentlemen's singles LONDON (Reuters) - For Rafael Nadal dignity in defeat is a deeply held belief and, along with his arch rivals, the Spaniard has put the gentleman back into the gentlemen's singles at Wimbledon. Compare that with the catfight that broke out between Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova in the lead-up to the world's most famous tennis tournament. Nadal, who tumbled out of the championships in a straight sets defeat by Belgian journeyman Steve Darcis on the opening day, declined to blame his wounded knee despite persistent questioning at the post-match news conference. He doesn't do excuses. The Spaniard, like Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, is a great believer in mutual respect. The leading quartet on the men's circuit do not indulge in slanging matches. That prompted Latvian player Ernests Gulbis to complain in an interview with French newspaper L'Equipe last month that: "Tennis today badly lacks characters... all four of them are boring players. ...

Crowd darling and third seed Maria Sharapova will also play on Wednesday and face Portugal's Michelle Larcher De Brito. The sportsbook handicappers have installed Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams as the favorites to win the Wimbledon title in their respective events.

Individual sports rankings have always been a confusing formula. No matter if it's golf, tennis or ping-pong, rankings put together an assortment of numbers and records to try and get the most accurate interpretation of the current state of that sport, the problem being that sometimes it can't see the forest from the trees. That is the current case with the seedings of Wimbledon. Rafael Nadal, who on June 9 won his record eighth French Open title, his first Grand Slam victory since returning from a seven-month hiatus from the sport because of a knee injury, actually dropped in the ATP rankings following his Grand Slam win. On May 27, Nadal was the fourth-ranked player in the world, and following his win, when the rankings came out on June 10, he had dropped to No. 5. I understand that rankings put together a cumulative list of records and wins and focus on the whole pie as opposed to the most recent slice, but if you are telling me your ranking system works after it drops a guy that just won a Grand Slam ...

Ten years after Roger Federer made his Grand Slam breakthrough at Wimbledon, the 17-time major winner returns to the All England Club next week as defending champion, but with the clock ticking. The Swiss put his growing army of critics firmly in their place in 2012 when, after back-to-back quarterfinal defeats, he captured his seventh Wimbledon title, equalling the record of Pete Sampras. Federer, meanwhile, ended a 10-month title drought at the weekend when he won the Halle grasscourt tournament for the sixth time – it was his first piece of silverware since Cincinnati on the eve of the 2012 US Open. That would have spiced up his confidence ahead of Wimbledon, but there are huge doubts over whether or not he can carry that spring in his elegant step onto the famous lawns of south-west London and be the first man to win Wimbledon eight times. Age is a factor. Federer will be 32 in August while Sampras won the last of his Wimbledon titles as a 28-year-old in 2000. An eighth victory for Federer next mont ...

All time gr-EIGHT! Nadal shrugs off flare protester and challenge of compatriot Ferrer to seal record French Open title (Submitted by Sports Journalist) Rafael Nadal’s incredible journey began in early February at the remote ATP Tour outpost of Vina del Mar in Chile against an Argentine called Federico Delbonis, and it finished at the place that might as well be his own private domain. Stade Roland Garros, named after a pilot who 100 years ago became the first to fly non-stop across the Mediterranean, was last night celebrating the conclusion of another extraordinary voyage undertaken by someone possessed by similar determination. From limping crock back to Grand Slam champion, Nadal is fully restored, and when it comes to clay-court tennis, there is nobody who can stop him. In truth the final step taken towards one of the sport’s four major podiums was not the most spectacular, completed in dismal weather and as straightforward as the semi-final, against Novak Djokovic, had been dramatic.

Hong Kong 'priority' city for new league Hong Kong will likely host one of the teams in an elite new tennis league featuring many of the world's top players, the man behind the competition has said, according to a report. The International Premier Tennis League, inspired by the television-friendly format of cricket's IPL in India, will see teams of six to 10 players compete for six franchises dotted across Asia. It is the brainchild of India's 12-time Grand Slam doubles champion Mahesh Bhupathi, and has been branded by world No 1 Novak Djokovic as potentially "revolutionary". "Hong Kong is a priority for us. We want to base a franchise in this city which has a tennis culture and which used to be an ATP Tour destination," Bhupathi told the South China Morning Post. "We are talking to people in Hong Kong and I'm confident we can have a team based there." Tennis authorities are keen to push the popularity of the sport in Asia, but are yet to see the expected knock-on effect after China's Li Na became the fir ...

Rafa Fans, Unite - Nadal vs Djoko Fri June 7th 7PM at Roland Garros. Excerpt from Roland Garros Website: Djokovic certain of historic win over Nadal By Kate Battersby: If Novak Djokovic tires of tennis in the near future, maybe he should go into marketing. His words ahead of his semi-final against the seven-time champion Rafael Nadal make it clear he’s selling a big idea, to tennis and to himself. And the idea is this… not merely that he can beat the Spaniard, but that he will do so, and thus become only the second man in nine years to defeat Nadal on the Roland Garros clay. There could be no more glorious way to complete the world No.1’s career Grand Slam. "I know the game plan,” announced Djokovic. “I'm going to be confident and step into the court with self-belief. I'm going to win - that's the mindset." To Rafa Nadal - Vamos! Prove Novak to be better in marketing than tennis in the future!

"'This is it': Djokovic vs. Nadal in semifinal show down!" At the start of the French Open, Novak Djokovic asked reporters not to mention his draw.Guess what, Novak? The blinders are off.With a convincing 6-3, 7-6 (7-5), 7-5 defeat of 35-year-old German Tommy Haas Wednesday, No. 1 Djokovic set up a blockbuster semifinal showdown with seven-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal.No. 3 seed Nadal was equally dominating in routing Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland 6-2, 6-3, 6-1."This is it," said Djokovic, who lost a rain-delayed four-set final to Nadal in last year's French Open.

The next great rivalry? -Novak Djokovic vs. Andy Murray may not be a network executive’s dream, and it may or may not be the future of men’s tennis. But it is the final that make sense here and now. By here, I mean on the medium-paced hard courts of Melbourne. By now, I mean now that these two junior rivals who were born a week apart have reached the ripe age of 25, and the peak of their powers. Djokovic and Murray will contest their second straight Grand Slam final, and their second Australian Open final in three years. They’re currently ranked No. 1 and No. 3, but could be 1-2 before long. They know each other well—They’ve already played 17 times as pros, seven times in 2012 alone. Djokovic leads 10-7 lifetime, and was 4-3 against Murray last year. They split their last two matches at Slams, each of which went five sets. So while you may miss Roger Federer and/or Rafael Nadal, this one should be competitive, as well as an exhibition of the best that tennis has to offer in the here and now. The ...

Australian Open - ATP to discuss time-violation rule with players ATP chief Brad Drewett will meet with players to address concerns over a new rule aimed at speeding up the game that has drawn criticism from professionals on the men's tour. This year, the ATP are enforcing a regulation that gives players 25 seconds to serve the ball or face a warning and then the loss of a point for a second violation. The new rule has sparked complaints from players who have fallen foul of the law. Grand Slams have had a time limit of 20 seconds for a number of years but the rule is rarely enforced and top players like Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic regularly flout it with drawn-out preparations to serves. The new rule was endorsed by the ATP player's council last month but stricter enforcement at warm-up tournaments ahead of next week's Australian Open has raised concerns from players about a crackdown at the year's first Grand Slam where five-set matches in extreme heat often feature. Australian Open tournament director ...

Five-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic is eyeing to surpass Swiss Tennis Maestro Roger Federer for No. 1 spot in the ATP Rankings by end of this
Too exhausted to jump up and down or run over to the stands the way some newly crowned champions do, Andy Murray dropped his racket to the court, crouched down gingerly and covered his mouth with his hands. A few minutes later, he took off his shoes, sat in his chair on the sideline, leaned his head back and looked into the dark New York sky. The 25-year-old Scotsman won the U.S. Open to earn the Grand Slam title that had eluded him the four previous times he had gotten this close. It took six minutes short of five hours on a windblown Monday night that was certainly not made for tennis. If it seemed like longer, well, there are some pretty good reasons for that. Murray's final against Novak Djokovic felt like three matches packed into one and maybe a lifetime or two for those watching back home in Britain, where it was a few minutes after 2 a.m. today when the last ball was struck. After taking a two-set lead, then squandering it, then girding himself for the deciding fifth set, Murray brought the first ...
Andy Murray wins his first ever grand slam! Murray's fairytale of New York By Tom Fordyce Chief sports writer, BBC Sport Comments (114) And there you were thinking this sporting summer had given us everything it could. Andy Murray's nerve-mangling, history-making US Open triumph over Novak Djokovic was many things: one of the great finals of the modern era, a late-night thriller from the city that never sleeps, a breath-taking demonstration of physical strength and mental fortitude. This fairytale of New York was also the perfect bookend to a few months that British sport can scarcely believe and will never forget. Hoodoos, holy grails and history books have all gone up in smoke: 29 Olympic Golds, a Briton in yellow on the Champs-Elysees, and now the granddaddy of them all - a British male with his hands on a Grand Slam trophy. In the end, after 76 years and a stomach-churning four hours 54 minutes, the wait ended in almost mundane fashion - a tired backhand return, Murray pulling his racquet aside, the y ...
