Inspired Giorgi Stuns Sharapova WTA - INDIAN WELLS, CA, USA - She's mysterious - she seems to send shockwaves through the tennis world when people least expect it - and Camila Giorgi has done it again, this time at the BNP Paribas Open , coming out of qualifying and now reaching the fourth round with a win over Maria Sharapova . Giorgi, who also reached her first two Grand Slam second weeks as a qualifier - Wimbledon in 2012, the US Open in 2013 - battled more than two and a half hours to edge the No.4-seeded Sharapova in a nail-biter, 63 46 75. Things got a little tricky at the end as Sharapova twice rallied from a break down in the third set - including with Giorgi serving for it at 5-4 - but the Italian regrouped to close it out. "It was a really good match - it wasn't too consistent, but it was great anyway," Giorgi said. "I just tried to play my game and keep going, and even if I missed, I still played my game. I didn't change. "I think I was just playing more aggressive than her at the end and that ...
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 ...
BEST GRAND SLAM MATCHES OF 2013 - NOS. 1-2: ATPWorldTour.com reviews the two best Grand Slam matches of the year. 2. Novak Djokovic d. Juan Martin Del Potro 7-5, 4-6, 7-6(2), 6-7(6), 6-3, Wimbledon Semi-finals The longest Wimbledon semi-final in history featured a mammoth slugfest between Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin Del Potro. The Big Four had dominated the Grand Slams for nearly the past four years and the Argentine was ready to break up the elite quartet. Having twisted his left ankle and hyper-extended his left knee in a third round victory over Grega Zemlja, a hobbled Del Potro entered Centre Court with a point to prove in his first major semi-final since claiming the US Open title in 2009. The Tower of Tandil had struggled to make a splash at the Grand Slam level since undergoing season-ending wrist surgery three years ago, but on this day, after nearly five hours of pulsating tennis, he made a booming statement on the game’s grandest stage. An encore of their thrilling Indian Wells semi-final f ...
Nadal: Being No1 again my greatest feat Rafael Nadal admits his return to the top of the world rankings after battling a serious knee injury is the greatest achievement of his illustrious career. Nadal has arrived in London for the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals on the verge of capping a remarkable recovery by finishing the year at number one in the world. That would be an incredible effort given the 13-time Grand Slam champion was sidelined with potentially career-threatening knee tendinitis for seven months from mid-2012 until early this year. The 27-year-old Spaniard, who has struggled with knee problems for much of his career, returned to win the French Open and then the US Open, as well as Masters events in Indian Wells, Madrid, Rome, Montreal and Cincinnati before reclaiming number one spot last month. “It is the most difficult thing I did in my career. I'm 100 percent sure of that,” Nadal said. “After seven months of not even being able to practice tennis I came back and won from the beg ...
’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 ...
Unfortunately I could not continue my good run in Delray. In the final in Memphis I tweaked my abdominal a little bit and I was hoping it would get better by yesterday. After winning Memphis I wanted to continue to push myself and keep playing but it was a little bit too much. As my goals is to get higher and higher in the rankings I am always pushing myself to get tougher and stronger so I did want to try and play in Delray. The draw for Delray was already made on Saturday so once I saw that I decided I wanted to continue my good run. I will go back home to Bradenton and work on getting ready for Indian Wells which should be no problem. Thanks for all the support and great messages following the amazing week in Memphis.
Former world number one Rafael Nadal will miss next month's ATP World Tour Masters Series events in Miami and Indian Wells. The 11-time Grand Slam champion only returned to the court this month after a seven-month injury lay-off with a persistent knee problem, but has decided to only play on clay courts as he prepares his bid for an eighth French Open title in May.
2012: Return to No. 1, Career Grand Slam and Olympic silver medal Sharapova playing in the final of the 2012 Sony Ericsson Open Sharapova withdrew from the 2012 Brisbane International because of her ongoing ankle injury.[70] Her first tournament of the season was the 2012 Australian Open, where she was seeded fourth. Sharapova advanced to the fourth round conceding just five games, defeating Gisela Dulko, Jamie Hampton, and the 30th seed Angelique Kerber en route. In the fourth round, Sharapova defeated the fourteenth seed Sabine Lisicki in three sets, 3–6, 6–2, 6–3, to reach her first hardcourt Grand Slam quarterfinal in four years. She then defeated compatriot Ekaterina Makarova in straight sets, 6–2, 6–3, to reach the semifinals. There she defeated the world No. 2 Petra Kvitová, 6–2, 3–6, 6–4, to reach her third Australian Open final, and her sixth grand slam singles final overall. She lost to Victoria Azarenka in the final 3–6, 0–6. As a result her ranking improved to world No. 3. ...
2012 trophy haul began with her maiden Grand Slam @ Australian Open She also had wins in Sydney, Doha, Indian Wells & Beijing.
I’m not quite sure how Victoria Azarenka, aka Mrs. Who!, managed to NOT win a tournament in six-and-a-half months (her last win was at Indian Wells). On the other hand, her play this year simply extended the narrative established two or more years ago, when she was a consistent, ever-on-the-cusp contender whose problem partially could be put down to bad luck. I’m not sure I can think of another player who so consistently failed to get that little break or hole in the draw that can transform a contender into a champ. But since she finally won her first Grand Slam title in Melbourne at the start of the year and vaulted to the top of the rankings, Azarenka has been able to play well enough to reclaim the No. 1 spot after losing it, and to mount the most formidable challenge to the undisputed superiority of Serena Williams. Guess which part of this write-up gets my juices flowing?
No Nadal? ITS NO WORRY, there's plenty of star Power U.S Open. So who'll win the final Grand Slam of The season? Ever notice that whenever the draw gods have spoken to determine the matchups in any given tournament, pundits fall all over themselves to find the name David Nalbandian, then proceed to proclaim that any high seed anywhere near him may be doomed? This time, it's Juan Martin Del Potro, Nalbandian's countryman and the No. 7 seed (and recent Olympic Games bronze medalist) at the U.S. Open. Is there a shocking upset in the offing? Don't hold your breath. Nalbandian's best win since Indian Wells has been a triumph over No. 38 Albert Ramos, and this dangerous floater has won exactly one match since the end of Wimbledon. That was just the other day in Winston-Salem, but the former Wimbledon finalist was promptly stopped by Alexandr Dolgopolov. Now there's a more worthy dangerous floater for you. Dolgopolov is up to No. 15 in the ATP rankings, and he recently won at Washington (defeating Tommy Haas). ...
When Federer returns to World No. 1 he will tie Sampras’ all-time record of 286 weeks in the top spot. At 30 years and 335 days, he is the second-oldest man to hold the No. 1 ranking, behind Andre Agassi who was 33 years and 131 days old. He was dethroned from the top spot by Nadal on 7 June 2010. Federer has a 46-4 match record on the season and has won four ATP World Tour titles. Only David Ferrer has won more matches this season with 47 victories. The Basel native was victorious in Rotterdam (d. Del Potro), Dubai (d. Murray) and at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments in Indian Wells (d. Isner) and Madrid (d. Berdych). The 25-year-old Murray was bidding to end Great Britain’s 76-year wait for a male Grand Slam champion; since Fred Perry triumphed at the 1936 US championships. The Scot tasted defeat in a Grand Slam final for the fourth time, having finished runner-up to Federer at the 2008 US Open and the 2010 Australian Open, and to Novak Djokovic at the 2011 Australian Open. Murray dropped ...
