Two of the greatest ever grass court players Stefan Edberg and Boris Becker who fought bitter three consecutive finals at the Centre court (1988-90) are now coaches of Fedex and Djoker... 1985-95 saw an avalanche of Tennis players you dont see now-a-days - Edberg, Becker, Mats Wilander, Ivan Lendl, Pat Cash, Michael Chang, Michael Stitch, Andre Agassi, Jim Courier. Unfortunately the competition now-a-days is between a maximum of 2 or 3 players... Till mid 90s, any of the top 8 seeds had the potency to win a Grand Slam title... The serve-and-volley era of Becker and Edberg would be missed forever not to mention of John McEnroe (a natural serve and Volleyer).
I used to love Bjorn Borg, Mats Wilander and Stefan Edberg. Edberg was always so gracious.

NADAL WEATHERS GAEL-FORCE STORM FOR DOHA CROWN: Rafael Nadal crafted an impressive performance in Saturday’s final of the Qatar ExxonMobil Open, opening his 2014 campaign with his 61st career title on the ATP World Tour. The Spaniard needed three sets and just under two hours to claim victory over a resilient Gael Monfils, clinching his maiden Doha title in his sixth trip to the desert metropolis. Nadal won 6-1, 6-7(5), 6-2. With former World No. 1 Mats Wilander and 2002 Doha champion Younes El Aynaoui looking on, the Spaniard captured his first title of the young season, passing Andre Agassi for sole ownership of the eighth spot in the list of most Open Era titles on the ATP World Tour. The 2010 runner-up also claimed sole possession of the 13th position in the all-time ATP World Tour match wins list with 663 victories, supplanting Michael Chang. Nadal, who has now won titles in 17 different countries, said, "Every victory is important and the title today means a lot to me. It is the first time in my c ...

The Transport Times - 25 Years since Lockerbie I don't normally cover stories about aviation, but today's is mega important. Memorial services are being marked in the UK and US today to mark 25 years since the Lockerbie disaster, which killed 270 people. Pan Am flight 103 took off from London Heathrow at 18:25 on December 21st 1988, bound for New York's JFK Airport. All seemed well and good with the flight as it entered Scottish airspace, but at 19:02, the plane lost contact was air traffic control. The reason why was because it was bombed up. The very busy Boeing 747 broke up and fell 31,000ft to the ground, smashing into the small, sleepy town of Lockerbie, in the Scottish borders. All 243 passengers and 16 crew died, as well as 11 residents of the town. The plane's wing section thundered into Sherwood Crescent at about 500mph, completely demolishing several houses, leaving a crater measuring 47m long. A little known fact is that celebrities such as Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols, Mats Wilander (the n ...

Champions paid tribute to generations past and present as an unprecedented gathering of No. 1s took place at the ATP Heritage programme's No. 1 Celebration on Friday night. The event, which took place at the Waldorf Astoria in New York, marked the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the Emirates ATP Rankings. Ilie Nastase, who became the first ATP World No. 1 on 23 August 1973, was present to be honoured on the night, along with successors John Newcombe, Jimmy Connors, Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe, Ivan Lendl, Mats Wilander, Stefan Edberg, Jim Courier, Marcelo Rios, Carlos Moya, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Gustavo Kuerten, Lleyton Hewitt, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Andy Roddick, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

Djokovic has better chance against Nadal in semis - Thu, 06 Jun 2013 05:03 BST Eurosport analyst Mats Wilander was hugely impressed by Novak Djokovic, as the world number one saw off the challenge of veteran Tommy Haas to reach the French Open semi-finals. Djokovic will now meet Rafael Nadal for a place in the final, and Mats believes the Serb stands a better chance of beating the Spanish clay-court master in the semis rather than in the championship game, as he explains in the video below: Mats also casts his expert eye over how Nadal won through, with a straight-set victory over Stanislas Wawrinka, and says the conditions suited the world number four: On the women's side, Maria Sharapova roared back from a terrible first set to beat Jelena Jankovic and book her place in the semi-finals; Mats gives his analysis of that match here: Sharapova will play Victoria Azarenka, who reached her first Roland Garros semi-final with victory over Maria Kirilenko.

That year he went on to become the first man since Mats Wilander to win the French Open at the first attempt. Fast forward eight years - and an era of utter domination on clay courts - and Nadal is seeking to rediscover his world -beating form after a seven-month lay-off with a knee injury which has seen him slip to fifth in the world. The Spaniard said before the match against Schwartzman that he is still not 100 per cent happy with the condition of his knee, but he nevertheless eased past the Argentine qualifier with a minimum of fuss. The 26-year-old is gunning for a second title from the three clay-court events he has played over the past four weeks. ...
