I started doubting, of course, a little bit. I needed this win a lot.” As he did when he won in 2011, Djokovic plucked grass from the court and ate it. “It tastes like the best meal I ever had in my life,” he said. Federer, a fierce competitor, was gracious in his defeat. “Winning or losing, it’s always something special and something yo ...

Murray, Djokovic on semis collision course - 20 June 2014, 13:19 Defending champion Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, the man he beat in 2013 to capture Britain's first Wimbledon title in 77 years, on Friday landed in the same half of this year's draw, leaving Roger Federer the biggest winner. Murray, who has been seeded three, could face top-seeded Djokovic in the last four while seven-time champion Federer, the fourth seed, is scheduled to renew his rivalry with world No 1 Rafael Nadal in the semifinals. But Nadal, the 2008 and 2010 champion, has been seeded second this year after losing in the first round in 2013 and getting knocked out in the second round 12 months earlier. The 28-year-old Spaniard, who won a ninth French Open earlier this month, has already expressed fears over whether or not his famously brittle knees will stand up to two weeks of grasscourt tennis. His mood will not have been helped by the draw which lined him up for a possible second round clash against big-hitting Czech Lukas Ros . ...

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have met each other in French Open on five occasions, with the Spaniard leading undefeated 5-0.
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??..

The Crusader - It has been easy to forget that Novak Djokovic is the best tennis player in the world.
At Roland Garros this week the men are providing some great entertainment with two great semi finals lined up. Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray will meet in perhaps the most intriguing match yet of the 2014 French Open. Nadal, ranked No. 1 and the reigning champion, takes on Murray, the comeback kid who wants to dethrone the King of Clay. On the surface, the other semifinal matchup between Novak Djokovic and Ernests Gulbis pits the over-achieving Serbian against Latvia's class clown, they enter this match seeking the same thing, something they have never accomplished before. While the ladies are not to be forgotten as a wild start has made way for a mostly scratch close. After early favorites bounced, other contenders have stepped up to fight for the crown, Maria Sharapova has taken over the title as the favorite, Sharapova will have to defeat upstart Eugenie Bouchard, who is in her second consecutive semi. Joining the two women on court will be No. 4 Simona Halep and No. 28 Andrea Petkovic. In International ...
We move into the semi's of the French Open with the Women's matches taking place tonight (11pm start) and the men's tomorrow. I will give a joint preview for both days matches. -Maria Sharapova ($1.30) vs Eugenie Bouchard ($3.45)- Bouchard goes up against her idol growing up. My head tells me Sharapova. Whilst I'm a bit biased towards her I think Bouchard can take it to Maria and send it to a 3rd set. SUGGESTED BET: Total games over 21.5 @ $1.90 -Simona Halep ($1.22) vs Andrea Petkovic ($4.15)- Petkovic proved me wrong yesterday but Halep looks very tough to beat at the moment and I think she'll continue her run of form. SUGGESTED BET: Halep @ $1.22 or Halep 2-0 @ $1.70 -Novak Djokovic ($1.10) vs Ernests Gulbis ($6.50)- Gulbis has had a terrific tournament beating Federer and Berdych in the last 2 round, however Djokovic is a different animal altogether. SUGGESTED BET: Having only dropped 1 set (in a tiebreak) this tournament I like Djokovic 3-0 @ $1.90 -Rafael Nadal ($1.14) vs Andy Murray ($5.50)- Murray ...

Roland - Garros 2014 This year I’ve been remiss in my coverage of the French Open, already in its second week heading into the semi-finals. On the men’s side, Rafa Nadal has to be the favorite. The is still going strong and, after a shaky start to the Clay Court season, he seems to be finding his rhythm. But he’ll have to get past David Ferrer, and then Andy Murray or Gael Monfils in the semifinals, before the championship against either Ernest Gulbis or Novak Djokovic, who’s looking to win his first major on clay. David Ferrer (Spain) is probably the hardest working guy on the tour. I love Ferrer. Will he beat Rafa? No. Andy Murray will probably outmaneuver Gael Monfils (France) due to experience, but wouldn’t it be nice to see Nadal and Monfils play in the semifinals before a crazed Parisian crowd? Yes it would. Gulbis is getting much attention from his recent play, as well as beating Federer. Ordinarily, I don’t like the guys who beat Federer. It’s sad not to see Roger in the finals anymo ...

The *** here with tonight's Rd.3 French Open tips Bit of value floating around with the seeded players now running into each other meaning more competitive matches. Here are my best bets for tonight: *Tommy Robredo ($1.50)- Despite being lower ranked than John Isner he loves this surface and Isner doesn't.. Isner will have to tee of and make everything to win. *Jo Wilfired Tsonga ($1.18)- Playing well and too much class for Janowics. *Dominka Cibulkova ($2.50)- She is ranked higher than our own Sam Stosur and is in form but is somehow paying $2.50. Stosur will have to play her best to win here.. -Cibulkova 2 sets to 1 is paying $5- also very good odds. *Mugurusa ($1.30)- This young Spaniard dismantled Serena Williams so based on that should ease past her unseeded opponent. *Novak Djokovic- He is paying $1.30 to win 3 sets to 0 against Marin Cilic and based on the way he is playing, this should be no problem.

French open in the rain with Novak Djokovic
Eight-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal won his opening match at Roland Garros and was soon asked if he or Novak Djokovic was the man to beat in Paris this year. “You care; I don’t care,” said Rafa, who is trying to become the first man to win five straight French Open titles. “I don’t have to write. … So write whatever you want, whatever you feel. Because for me, the only thing that matters to me is I won today.” ALWAYS with Rafa!
Novak Djokovic, one of the best men’s players never to win the French Open, often plays his best when inspired by something off the court, and his homeland, Serbia, might provide some inspiration this year at Roland Garros.

Yo Roger in the Next Round . Roland Garros 2014 French Open. But my money is on Novak Djokovic this year.
I am so excited for the French Open to start today! My bold predictions are Simona Halep and Novak Djokovic. Of course Serena is the heavy favorite but I think if Halep is healthy, she's as good as anyone on the clay being that it is her favorite surface. Whatcha think about that, Freddy Lee?
ESPN Video: Chris Fowler and Patrick Mcenroe break down Rafael Nadal's and Novak Djokovic's chances at the 2014 French Open.
FRENCH OPEN With the French Open kicking off tonight, here are my picks for the tournament! The bookies have narrowed it down to a 2 horse race in the men's field with Novak Djokovic ($2.30) edging Rafael Nadal ($2.50) for favoritism. I can't see anyone outside of these 2 winning the tournament as well. Nadal at $2.50 is an absolute steal. Yes Novak has beaten him in the last 4 meetings and he hasn't been at his best, but Rafa is 59-1 in Paris and has won 8 of the last 9 Grand Slams there & is no doubt the best Clay Courter ever. Moving up from 3 to 5 set matches suits him to a tee here. Some markets have a Djokovic & Nadal final @ $2.40 which is also great value. In the women's draw Serena Williams ($2.20) is very short and clay is probably her worst surface but she is a class above when she is 100% fit.

Rafael Nadal still had the best clay season out of anyone, but it wasn't up to his lofty standards. The Spaniard only won one title, and lost in two straight quarterfinals to lower-ranked countrymen. Novak Djokovic beat him in the final of the Rome Masters last week to set up plenty of intrigue between the top two players in the world.

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.

Away from the courts, hoping to make a comeback from a back injury that threatens to take him out from the French Open, Gasquet used some of his time off to concede an interview to the magazine Sport&Style. And Richard had a lot to say about his famous colleagues in the ATP World Tour. "Federer and Nadal are not as confident as they may look like. Novak Djokovic instead, has a lot of self-confidence. What strikes me about Rafa is that even if he is facing the World No.100 he always is worried. I am sure that neither Federer nor Nadal have ever used doping substances. I can say the same thing about all the players that currently sit ahead of me in the ATP rankings" revealed the French, currently ranked at World No.11. "I will never become a TV commentator. Whoever does it, tells just a whole lot of baloney. Former players forget too soon that once they were tennis players, and it is too easy to give advice or talk bad about former colleagues" al ...

Nadal set to test Djokovic in Australia World number one Rafael Nadal will attempt to dethrone Novak Djokovic and put a new wave of celebrity coaches to the test when he returns to the Australian Open next week according to AFP. Nadal missed last year’s edition during a seven-month injury break with knee trouble before making a stunning comeback to win 10 titles in 2013, including the French Open and US Open. Now the rampant Spaniard will take aim at Djokovic’s three-year reign at Melbourne Park, the longest of the Open era, and try to avenge his epic, six-hour loss to the Serb in the 2012 final. He also arrives as the only “Big Four” player without a star coach, after Djokovic and Roger Federer, aping Andy Murray’s move in hiring Ivan Lendl, hooked up with Boris Becker and Stefan Edberg respectively. However, with Murray returning from injury and Federer now 32, the door could be open for a group of other contenders, led by Juan Martin Del Potro and David Ferrer. Nadal, still coached by his unc ...

Novak Djokovic admitted that this year could have been better for him at the Grand Slams. He won the Australian Open but lost two finals and had clay-court king Rafael Nadal on the ropes at the French Open.
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 ...

Novak Djokovic proved shock-proof as a sense of order was restored on Tuesday after the tremors that rumbled around Wimbledon on opening night following Rafa Nadal's defeat. A day that began with Belgium's Steve Darcis waking up as the sport's latest giant-slayer after his shock first round defeat of 12-times major champion Nadal on Monday, continued in far less dramatic fashion at the All England club. Djokovic outmanoeuvred Mayer, a player just outside the top 32 seeds and who he faced in the quarterfinals last year, for a 6-3 7-5 6-4 victory. Nadal's fourth-seeded compatriot David Ferrer, who he beat to win an eighth French Open, completed a far-from-memorable Centre Court programme with a 6-1 4-6 7-5 6-2 win against Argentina's Martin Alund despite several tumbles. Other men's seeds also flourished with Czech 2010 runner-up Tomas Berdych, Argentine 2009 US Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro, Germany's Tommy Haas and talented Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov all enjoying straight sets wins. Djokovic had not ...
After winning the French Open earlier this month, Rafael Nadal falls early at Wimbledon, losing to Belgium's Steve Darcis, ranked No. 135 in the world. It's the first loss for Nadal in the opening round of a Grand Slam.
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 ...
Rafael Nadal could have to play Andy Murray, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic after being seeded only 5th for Wimbledon. The 2 time champion also occupies 5th place in the ATP world rankings, but the seeding for SW19 usually goes on grass court results of the past 2 years. And with Nadal crashing out at the 2nd round stage against Lukas Rosol 12 months ago before being sidelined for 7 months with a knee injury. World number 1 Djokovic is top seed with Britain's number 1 Murray 2nd - the highest he has ever been seeded for Wimbledon. Reigning champion Federer is 3rd seed and Nadal's fellow Spaniard David Ferrer is 4th. The seeding formula has therefore failed to take into account Nadal's excellent from since his comeback in February in which he has won 7 of the 9 tournaments he has contested, including the French Open. It means that when the seeds' potential paths to the title will be revealed on Friday,Nadal might have to face back to back games against Murray, Djokovic and Federer from the quarter finals ...
Nadal seeded fifth at Wimbledon Wimbledon, England (Sports Network) - Even though he's the hottest player in men's tennis, reigning French Open champion and two-time Wimbledon titlist Rafael Nadal received only the No. 5 seed at Wimbledon 2013, which will commence Monday at the All England Club. Nadal's fifth seeding means he could meet top-seeded Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic, last year's Wimbledon runner-up and second seed Andy Murray or reigning champ and third seed Roger Federer as early as the quarterfinals at the world's only grass-court Grand Slam event.
Confidence is the biggest key to Rafael Nadal 's game. And after cruising to an eighth career French Open title earlier this month, Rafa looks ready to challenge for a third Wimbledon crown...
Toni Nadal: Rafa ready for run at No. 1 Toni Nadal tells El Periodico that his fifth-ranked nephew Rafael is sitting in a good position to make a run at the No. 1 ranking. Nadal trails world No. 1 Novak Djokovic by about 5,000 points, but only has 90 points to defend the rest of the year. “We are in a position to play for the top. Rafa has a considerable advantage, but everything can changes in one tournament,” he said. Whomever wins Wimbledon will take a big step.” Toni Nadal also said that while his nephew is the best player ever on clay, if he didn’t win the French Open title this year, “it’s not the same. When you get to Roland Garros you have a lot of pressure, you come to be the world’s best on clay. If you lose Roland Garros it’s a huge disappointment. That have him a lot of pressure. Everything you have gained is worth less. Rafael had beaten David [Ferrer] many times, but it was their biggest match. If you lose it, it would be a disaster.”
Barry Cowan - "As it stands now, I would put Rafa top of the pile ahead of Wimbledon, with Murray my second favourite and Djokovic and Federer third and fourth respectively". Err, ok. Yes Rafa was superb on his way to capturing an astonishing 8th French Open title, but Novak Djokovic is world number one for a reason, and Andy Murray, despite missing Roland Garros through injury, will be a major threat due to the fact that his game is tayler made for grass, so I fail to see the logic in that statement. In any case Rafa won last years French Open, and went out to lukas Rosol in the 2nd round at Wimbledon. So, winning the French Open doesn't necessarily make you favourite on the turf.
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. The bigges ...
