Some Intro for the MAN. "When Sachin Tendulkar travelled to Pakistan to face one of the finest bowling attacks ever assembled in cricket, Michael Schumacher was yet to race a F1 car, Lance Armstrong had never been to the Tour de France, Diego Maradona was still the captain of a world champion Argentina team, Pete Sampras had never won a Grand Slam. When Tendulkar embarked on a glorious career taming Imran and company, Roger Federer was a name unheard of; Lionel Messi was in his nappies, Usain Bolt was an unknown kid in the Jamaican backwaters. The Berlin Wall was still intact, USSR was one big, big country, Dr Manmohan Singh was yet to "open" the Nehruvian economy. It seems while Time was having his toll on every individual on the face of this planet, he excused one man. Time stands frozen in front of Sachin Tendulkar. We have had champions, we have had legends, but we have never had another Sachin Tendulkar and we never will. "

Marin Cilic booked his place in the semi-finals of the US Open with a convincing 6-2 6-4 7-6 (7-4) win over Tomas Berdych on Thursday.The Croatian was forced to sit out this tournament last year as he served a doping ban, but has come back in style by delivering his best ever performance at Flushing Meadows. Cilic will now contest his second career grand slam semi-final, with Roger Federer or Gael Monfils awaiting him in the last four. Berdych looked far from his best in the opening set and was immediately on the back foot as he lost the first game on his own serve. Cilic outnumbered his opponent by three breaks to one to move into the ascendancy, and started the second set as he had the first, with a win on Berdych's serve. The remainder of the set went with serve, but Berdych appeared helpless in dealing with Cilic's delivery, losing 11 consecutive points when receiving from the 14th seed. Berdych finally looked like turning things around at the start of the third set and battled his way to a 3-0 lead. ...

WIMBLEDON NO BET We have Roger Federer running for us at 11/2 in the final. Weve already been guaranteed a payout as we backed him each way. So if you followed our advice you would be collecting at half the odds for your each way proportion of the bet. e.g. £10 each way you would now be guaranteed £27.50 return. We can sit back and enjoy the match. Roger Federer is desperate to get another Grand Slam and with Wimbledon being his absolute best tournament for this he will be hopeful today. In reality though the odds of 6/4 for him to win this match are probably about right. He has been in tremendous form though and Djokovic has been playing patchy. The Semi Final against Dimitrov he started like a train and it looked like a straight sets easy victory was on the cards. When Dimitrov upped his game and focussed better Djokovic' discipline started to go. If Federer can get him rattled today he stands a chance, but he has to be absolutely at his best. Whatever happens it looks like it could be a fascinating t ...

LONDON: Petra Kvitova overwhelmed Eugenie Bouchard 6-3, 6-0 in less than an hour Saturday to win Wimbledon for the second time in the most lop-sided final in more than two decades.The Czech left-hander completely outplayed the 20-year-old Canadian — appearing in her first Grand Slam final — with her big serve, aggressive returns and flat groundstrokes. Kvitova, the 2011 champion, put on a clinic of power tennis, ripping baseline winners off both wings and leaving Bouchard looking helpless. Kvitova won the final seven games, finishing the 55-minute rout with another clean winner — a cross-court backhand.Kvitova fell onto her back at the dusty baseline after her final shot flew past Bouchard. Later, she climbed into the stands to embrace her parents and the rest of her team. The last time a player lost only three games in the Wimbledon final was in 1992, when Steffi Graf beat Monica Seles 6-2, 6-1.Kvitova’s attack-minded game is perfectly suited for the grass of the All England Club. Both of her Gra ...

Roger Federer vs Novak Djokovic. 18th grand slam title for Fedex. Class is permanent.
Roger Federer proved he can still "outrun time" and reclaim his grass-court empire by beating Milos Raonic to reach his ninth Wimbledon final. The 32-year-old dismissed Raonic 6-4 6-4 6-4 in today's semi-final, dispelling the Canadian challenger's prediction his All England Club era could come to a close. Federer will now face top seed Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final, where he can claim a record eighth title. Canada's eighth seed Raonic talked passionately about the challenge of dislodging tennis' top four in the build-up to his first grand slam semi-final. The 23-year-old believes the new wave of men's talent is finally ready to loosen the decade-long stranglehold enjoyed by Federer, Rafa Nadal, Andy Murray and Djokovic. Raonic claimed no one can "outrun time" and delay the inevitable passing of eras after his quarter-final victory over Nick Kyrgios - but even after 17 grand slam victories, Federer still has other ideas. Djokovic quietened the clamour of Queen's Club champion Grigor Dimitrov to reach hi ...

Grand Slam great Roger Federer shows no mercy in Wimbledon opener
One of the most dominant players of the '80s, Ivan Lendl won 10 Grand Slams and appeared in 19 Grand Slam single finals, a record broken by Roger Federer in 2009. Over the course of his 16-year career, Lendl compiled a 1,071-239 record with 144 career titles.
Last year's Wimbledon was the most unpredictable in memory. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova - owners of a combined 10 titles at the All England Club - were all gone by the end of the second round. Five-time champion Serena Williams left in the fourth. Add in the record-equaling withdrawals or mid-match retirements because of health problems. And to cap it all, Andy Murray finally gave Britain the men's champion it had wanted for more than three-quarters of a century. What might 2014 have in store? Here are five things to watch at Wimbledon, where play begins Monday: 'MURRESMO': The pairing of Murray and his new coach, Amelie Mauresmo, was quickly dubbed ''Murresmo,'' and their partnership is sure to draw a lot of notice. For one thing, Murray won the grass-court Grand Slam tournament - the first British man in 77 years to do so - with Ivan Lendl in his corner a year ago. For another, it's unusual for a top male tennis player to be coached by a woman. But Murray was coached for years by his ...
Former world's no.1 Roger Federer might be playing throughout the Wimbledon Open with bandage on his hand after he accidentally stabbed it while playing with his four-year old twins, the 7-time Wimbledon Open champion revealed on Friday. The 33-year old Federer is gunning for a record-setting eighth championship at All-England Tennis Club, but the latest injury could be a factor in his quest to become a Grand Slam winner again. "You know what happened? I was playing in the woods with the girls and I stabbed a stick in my hand," said Federer in an interview with the London Evening Standards on Friday. Still, everything appears to be okay with Federer as he had a fine practice session with fellow Wimbly champion Lleyton Hewitt. "But the bad news for Andy Murray and the others in the running to win this year's tournament, which starts on Monday, is that Federer's injury is unlikely to hinder his performance. He was in good spirits during the match, laughing and joking with his Australian rival. Coach Stefan ...
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. The singles draw ceremony takes place on Friday. The singles seeds reflect the Top 32 in the ...

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. No one knows how many more weeks he will spend there before finally passing on the reins for good. Those reins may go to Nadal, Djokovic or even Andy Murray, who made an impressive showing However, some of the records Roger is leaving behind will never be broken by any of his successors. 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. Pete Sampras got 14 Slams in his career and Rafael Nadal has 11. Novak Djokovic might get into double digits as well. Roger's 58 percent Grand Slam-winn ...

Sean's Report 2014 French Open The second Grand Slam of the year has seen the first major upset with No. 3 seed Stan Wawrinka crashing out in the first round. The Australian Open champion lost to Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 4-6, 7-5, 2-6, 0-6 and dished up 62 unforced errors.

The French Open always presents a unique test. The second major of the season is the only one contested on clay, which requires a different skill set. It also starts a very busy stretch that continues through Wimbledon and the U.S. Open. Players are focused on setting a positive tone they can build from in the months ahead. Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams were the stars who accomplished that goal last year with triumphs at Roland Garros. It was Nadal's eighth French championship and Williams' second. Both the Spaniard and the American return with hope of defending their titles. There are 127 other players on each side looking to end those dreams. Where: Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France When: Sunday, May 25 - Sunday, June 8 Nadal is the unquestioned "King of Clay."

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (AP)—No. 2-seeded Li Na reached the third round of the Sony Open when Alisa Kleybanova withdrew Friday because of a viral illness. Kleybanova, who won in doubles Thursday, is a former Top 20 player mounting a career comeback from Hodgkin's lymphoma. No. 6 Simona Halep withdrew because of a right toe injury. The stadium court schedule on Friday featured the winners of 32 Grand Slam titles in four matches. The parade of champions included Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Venus Williams and Andy Murray playing their opening matches.

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.

Roger Federer is totally jealous of Stan Wawrinka's Grand Slam title
Swiss press lauds Wawrinka 27 January By SAPA Lausanne – The Swiss press on Monday hailed the “impossible exploit” of newly-crowned Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka, who has finally come out of the shadows of more illustrious compatriot Roger Federer. The Swiss, who also upset three-time defending champion Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals, capped a magnificent fortnight in Melbourne with his 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 win over Rafael Nadal for his first major title. “Giant,” headlined Le Matin, including a signed poster of the player inside a 14-page spread dedicated to the “triumph” of the native of Saint-Barthelemy, a village which was renamed “Stan-Barthelemy” by its mayor on Sunday. “Stantastic”, read the “Neue Zuericher Zeitung”. “Anyone who would have said 13 months ago that Wawrinka would shortly win a Grand Slam title, would probably have been classified as insane,” the Zurich daily said. If Wawrinka had until recently lived in the shadow of 17-time Grand Slam ...
Just watched the absolute BEST Grand Slam tennis final in many years, with Nadal injured after the Stanimal, Stan Wawrinka, playing brillliantly, took the first set and was up a break in the second. But there's nothing more dangerous than a wounded bear. Nadal, unable to move and barely able to serve, somehow took the 3rd set! The fourth set was an emotional roller coaster for both players, and me, yelling at the TV, *** it, drop shot him, Stan ... move him side to side . bring him in with that hurt back and lob to make him hit an darn overhead!" The announcers started wondering the same. But Stan was able to close it out 6-3 in the fourth, becoming a Grand Slam winner and making some history by taking out the top two seeds, becoming in the world, and passing countryman Roger Federer as the Swiss player. Congrats to the Stanimal!!
Tennis Quiz of the Day: Since Roger Federer won his first Wimbledon title way back in 2003, the so-called big 4 (Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, and Murray) have won 38 of the 43 Grand Slam titles played.

Wawrinka enters the Grand Slam Club :) and Roger Federer has 14 Grand Slam as the youngest player in history :)
Caught the replay from last nights’ semifinals….what a performance by Rafa Nadal in his victory over Roger Federer! With the quicker conditions and strong form that Roger showed in his wins over Tsonga and Murray, he was hoping to make it a chance for another Grand Slam final however Rafa just couldn’t be denied. Rafa was stronger in all parts of the game and kept Roger pinned to the baseline with heavy ground strokes making it tough for him to attack. Could be an interesting final - Rafa, going for his 14th Grand Slam title to tie Pete Sampras for Grand Slam titles, has never lost to Stan Wawrinka (12-0). And even though it’s the first Grand Slam final for Stan, he’s had an incredible 15 months, playing with a lot of confidence and looks much more in control out there…who knows maybe is his lucky number.

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.
Congratulations to my all time favorite tennis player, Rafael Nadal for trashing Roger Federer to set himself against Stan Wawrinka. Nadal will be vying for his 14th Grand Slam title. Best of luck, Nadal.
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, ...
Australian Open 2014: Day Eleven Diminika Cibulkova? What? I don’t think anyone was guessing that Radwanska would experience such a complete let-down and lose so easliy. Congratulations are in order for Cibulkova. She is playing great tennis and is in her first Grand Slam final. Wow! Go Little One! Did anyone catch Radwanska covering the camera lens with her towel as she excited the court? I believe that you can tell who a person really is by how they handle adversity. Ms. Radwanska handles it like a Crabby Moo. Before Tennis Announcers go on air, they should all agree on the pronunciation of difficult names, like Dominika Cibulkova’s. Martina Navratilova says, “Si-buhl-kova,” while Tracy Austin says, “See-bull-kova.” Which is it? Cliff Drysdale said that Aga Radwanska’s game is, “sweet, gentle and interesting.” Was he talking about her game or her personality? Why did Stan Wawrinka get to play his semi-final a full day before Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer? He gets more rest ti ...
Flipping the script Written By Alix Ramsay Friday, 24 January, 2014 Is it me, or have we been here before? Roger Federer against Rafael Nadal at the business end of a Grand Slam tournament? It may be the semifinals of the Australian Open and the tension may be mounting, but watching those two at work is a bit like settling into a comfy, old armchair – there is nothing quite like it. This will be the 33rd meeting for the pair, with Rafa leading the rivalry by a staggering 22-10. No matter that the Fed has more major titles than any other player in history – in his pomp, he was vacuuming them up like it was going out of fashion – he still has not beaten Raf on a Grand Slam stage since the 2007 Wimbledon final. Since then, Manacor’s favourite son has walloped Fed in four more Grand Slam finals and one semifinal. He is quite good at Grand Slams, is Raf. In this new world of celebrity coaches and high-profile advisors, good old Raf likes to keep it simple. Between them, Messrs Edberg, Becker and Lendl ...

Day 11 preview: Great expectations Wednesday, 22 January, 2014 Eugenie Bouchard generated more hits on ausopen.com on Tuesday, after her big win over Ana Ivanovic, than either Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal. A 2012 Wimbledon junior champion, the 19-year-old Canadian will now be inside the top-20 in next week’s new WTA rankings. She plays Li Na in Thursday afternoon’s semifinals. What’s most noticeable about Bouchard is that she views her success as simply a matter of course. It’s as if she were a student who does her homework and automatically expects to get a good grade. Of course, it ain’t that easy in tennis – thousands of Eugenie Bouchards fall by the wayside every year. “It’s something I’ve been doing since I was five years old, working my whole life for and sacrificing a lot of things for,” said Bouchard, sounding almost detached about everything – including joining Carling Bassett (US Open 1984) as the only Canadian to reach a Grand Slam semifinal. “So it’s not exactly a su ...

Federer, Murray, Azarenka hit top gear AFP_MELBOURNE: Roger Federer and Andy Murray hit top gear at the Australian Open Saturday as two-time defending women's champion Victoria Azarenka destroyed Yvonne Meusburger for the loss of just one game.As cooler temperatures consigned this week's heatwave to memory, Federer swept past Russia's world number 79 Teymuraz Gabashvili 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 in what is his record 57th consecutive major tournament. Murray moved smoothly past Spain's Feliciano Lopez and Maria Sharapova came through a test against French challenger Alize Cornet before reaching the fourth round. In the evening session, Azarenka showed little mercy to unseeded Austrian Yvonne Meusburger, winning 6-1, 6-0 to set up a rematch with Sloane Stephens after their controversial semi-final last year. Federer, with an unsurpassed 17 Grand Slam titles but now aged 32, last year lost in Wimbledon's second round and in the last 16 at the US Open, raising doubt about his ability to win more major titles. But the Sw ...

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 ...

Numbers point to seasoned Federer's struggle to stay on top Mumbai, September 21, 2013 Just how far Roger Federer has fallen off pace against his main rivals is niftily reflected on the points board the ATP maintains to determine its top eight for the season-ending Masters. The Swiss, seventh in the 'Race to London', as it's called, is struggling to get entry into a tournament, which many recognise as the 'fifth' Grand Slam, he's dominated for the past decade - a record six titles from eight finals. Wildcard reserved In an attempt to help him get over the line, the ATP tournament in Vienna has reserved a wildcard for Federer in case he does not have enough points to make the cut for the season finale. Herwig Straka, tournament director of the Vienna ATP event, confirmed this, before adding: "But probably every tournament around the globe would keep a wildcard for Roger."
