Sorry to say but i predict 2 more very quick matches tomorrow, here's the winning tips: Novak Djokovic and Tomas Berdych under 19.5 -110 3 to win 2.71*** Djokovic is in unreal form, even for him. 61% return pts won vs cilic and 64% vs wawrinka, 2 "world class servers". Djoker hasnt lost indoors in over 2 years and he routinely returns at or above 50% with many breaks. He is 16-2 vs berdych! 5-1 since 2013 (14-3 sets).

Roger Federer dropped the opening set against countryman Stanislas Wawrinka but came back to win their quarterfinal match in four sets, 3-6 7-6 (5) 6-4 6-4. Nick Kyrgios is up a set in his quarterfinal against Milos Raonic, but is down a break in the second set. For either player, it would be the first time in a major semifinal. If precedent is anything to go by, Federer has a good chance of reaching the final now; he is undefeated against Raonic (4-0) but has never played Kyrgios. Also, Federer has never lost a semifinal at Wimbledon (8-0). In the top half, Novak Djokovic came back from being down two sets to one against Marin Cilic to win the match in five sets, and will face Grigor Dimitrov in the top half's semifinal.

Stan crushed; Rafa, Novak untroubled 26 May 2014 Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka came back to earth with a thump on the sodden clay at the French Open when he was beaten by Spain's Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in the first round on Monday to become the tournament's first big casualty. The Swiss third seed threw away a 3-1 lead in the first set and even though he pulled level by winning the second set he capitulated to a 6-4 5-7 6-2 6-0 defeat against a man who has never gone past the third round at Roland Garros. Dealing with expectation has never been a problem for Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal and they both raced into the second round on a damp day in the French capital. Second seed Djokovic played the funny man as he slithered to a 6-1 6-2 6-4 win over Portugal's Joao Sousa while defending champion Nadal slipped into his customary role of cold-blooded assassin against Robbie Ginepri. Djokovic had criticised the surface on the Philippe Chatrier show court for being too damp after several days of ...

Novak Djokovic and Stanislas Wawrinka qualify for the third round of Rome Masters tennis tournament.
Stanislas Wawrinka and Rafael Nadal were once again creating Bizarro-history at the 2014 Monte Carlo Masters. Guess who is once again holding the trophy? It was a fantastic week of clay-court action at perhaps the most beautiful venue in all of tennis. And it witnessed wonderful success by the likes of David Ferrer and Roger Federer. Two shocking stories really dominated the week and could have repercussions through the French Open. Nadal was mortal at Monte Carlo, and Novak Djokovic can only hope to recover from his loss. Dive into the Monte Carlo-aftermath edition of the "Winners and Losers" of tennis. This is where we examine the unusual, disappointing and triumphant happenings in tennis.
Stanislas Wawrinka, who beat Roger Federer to clinch the Monte Carlo Masters title, said he is prepared for French Open but fight for the crown will be between Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Federer and Andy Murray.
Roger Federer dumped his chance to win the Monte-Carlo tournament again, this time losing to countryman Stanislas Wawrinka, against whom he had a 13-1 record prior to today's loss (though his only loss was at the same tournament as today's). After winning a close first set, he didn't play a very good tiebreak in the second set, losing it 5-7, then played an awful third set, winning only 17 of the 45 points in the set and being broken twice to lose. For whatever reason, the ATP site doesn't list winners and unforced errors for a match, but I know from the stats at the end of the television broadcast that Wawrinka had something like 22 winners and 23 unforced errors, while Federer had about 18 more unforced errors than winners, a very sloppy match indeed. Wawrinka was playing well, but Federer should have won this one, particularly seeing how well he played against Novak Djokovic in the semifinal. Now, it seems unlikely Federer will ever win Monte-Carlo, as he had the good fortune of having someone else bea ...

Jack’s Tennis Tip – Racket talent or athletic ability? I have a theory that you can put tennis players (any player) into one of two categories. They either fall under the category of 'racket talented' or 'athlete.' I made up this theory quite a while ago but I still think it is valid. There are a few players that confuse me but for the most part I think my theory holds true. Obviously the lines blur in some instances and without a doubt all of the players on the professional tour are racket talented and supremely athletic too, but bear with me; Rafael Nadal - athlete Novak Djokovic - athlete Stanislas Wawrinka - racket talented Juan Martin Del Potro - racket talented David Ferrer - athlete Andy Murray - athlete Tomas Berdych - racket talented Roger Federer - racket talented Richard Gasquet - racket talented Jo-Wilfried Tsonga - athlete Kei Nishikori - racket talented Gael Monfils - athlete Milos Raonic - racket talented John Isner - racket talented Grigor Dimitrov - racket talented Serena Williams - A ...

Stanislas Wawrinka, who took out defending champion Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals, has now also overcome World No.1 Rafael Nadal in the final.
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.
Excited though he was at his own quarter-final win on Wednesday night, it’s entirely possible that Roger Federer was even more delighted for countryman and good friend Stanislas Wawrinka, whom he cheered to victory over Novak Djokovic the night before. Unbeaten as yet in 2014, Wawrinka opened the season with victory at the Aircel Chennai Open before edging three-time defending champion Djokovic in five sets on Tuesday night to reach his first Australian Open semi-final. It comes hot on the heels of his first major semi-final appearance at the US Open and his debut at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in November. It leaves Switzerland on the edge of its seat at the very real possibility of the first all-Swiss Grand Slam final at Melbourne Park. “The moment you start thinking about that we're taking the same flight home,” cautioned Federer. “I'm worried about my match clearly, but I'll definitely watch his first. Hopefully he can make it. Then he can put the pressure on me that way. Excited though ...
Thursday’s second women’s singles semifinal pits No. 5 seed Agnieszka Radwanska, fresh off her upset of two-time defending champion Victoria Azarenka, against No. 20 Dominika Cibulkova. Radwanska leads their head-to-head 5-1. Thursday’s men’s semifinal matches No. 7 seed Tomas Berdych, who ousted third seed David Ferrer, against No. 8 Stanislas Wawrinka, who upset three-time defending champion Novak Djokovic. Wawrinka holds an 8-5 career advantage and has won their three most recent meetings. But Berdych beat him a year ago in Davis Cup in four sets and, with Radek Stepanek, won the doubles over him and Marco Chiudinelli in a monster 24-22 fifth set. The TV ratings should be good in Switzerland with Roger Federer showcased on Wednesday night and Wawrinka 24 hours later. In Canada, Bouchard’s win over Ivanovic drew 1.6 million viewers, more than the average National Hockey League weeknight game. But that’s still about 100 times fewer than the estimated 116 million Chinese who watched Li win the ...

Good day to everyone!!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday so far :D It's early morning in Melbourne with Day 8 of the Aussie Open looming with exciting tennis action. I know yesterday was full of amazing tennis with some expected results and some not so expected. Novak Djokovic showed his usual brilliance on a tennis court and was not hindered by the flashy and unpredictable style of his Italian opponent. He dropped only 5 games to Fabio Fognini as he cruised into the final 8. Stanislas Wawrinka also dispatched the veteran Spaniard Tommy Robredo for the first time in 7 encounters. Although he got it done in straight sets, the last two came down to two close tiebreaks. This victory sends Stan into the final 8 where he will see a very familiar foe. It's a rematch of his epic 5 set match against Nole last year one round earlier. I'm curious to see if this year will be any different. Tomas Berdych had no trouble in his match with Kevin Anderson.

"This is the biggest matchup of our Roland Garros 2013 campaign for both me and him."As soon as Nadal was drawn in Djokovic's half, logic suggested the French Open championship would pass through their path.One or the other has appeared in 11 of the last 12 Grand Slam finals — five of them when they faced each other.Nothing has changed that thinking, though hearts — those beating in French chests — hope that whoever emerges w ...
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. Highlights and Mats' analysis, notably of a marathon fi ...
What a day of tennis! My girl Maria Sharapova gave me a HUGE scare this morning when she lost the first set to Jelena Jankovic 0-6! She made a fantastic comeback and took the last two set 6-4, 6-3 to move on the semi-finals. In the semi-finals she will play Victoria Azarenka who beat Maria Kirilenko 7-6, 6-2. Rafael Nadal dominates the "other Swiss" Stanislas Wawrinka in straights and then Novak Djokovic beat the ageless Tommy Haas in straights as well.
In WTA: Rafael Nadal defeated Stanislas Wawrinka 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 to advance to his 8th French Open Semifinals where waiting for him will be Novak Djokovic who beat Tommy Haas in straight sets. In my opinion, the winner of this matchup WILL win the French Open.
Today is the second day of the French Open quarter-finals. On the men's side Novak Djokovic tackles Tommy Haas and Rafael Nadal faces Stanislas Wawrinka, while on the women's side Jelena Jankovic plays Maria Sharapova and Maria Kirilenko is up against Victoria Azarenka. Who will you be backing?
Stanislas Wawrinka broke the heart of Richard Gasquet and those of the French fans on Day 9, coming back from 2 sets to love down to book a spot in the quarter-finals. Day 9 Recap Gasquet looked likely to join compatriot Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarter-finals when he claimed the first two sets against ninth seed Wawrinka, offsetting some smoking winners from the Swiss with some clever play of his own. But some heated exchanges with chair umpire Carlos Ramos seemed to rejuvenate the Swiss star, who stormed back to claim the win 8-6 in the fifth set in just over 4 hours. Earlier in the day, Tommy Haas became just the third German male after Boris Becker and Michael Stich to reach the quarter-finals of all the majors when he whipped Mikhail Youzhny in straight sets, the Russian suffering a meltdown midway through the match as he smashed his racquet nine times in a row in a clip sure to be replayed countless times on YouTube. Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic stayed on course for a blockbuster semi-final, bot ...

Rainy conditions affected play on Day 3 at Roland Garros, but world number one Novak Djokovic avoided the delays to secure his second round berth at the tournament. Day 3 Recap The top seeded Djokovic faced a tough assignment in the opening round against young Belgian David Goffin, who pinched a set off Roger Federer in the round of 16 at Roland Garros last year. Taking the first set to a tiebreaker and performing creditably throughout the match, Goffin was unable to match Djokovic’s firepower in the big moments, eventually succumbing in 3 sets. Other winners in the men’s tournament on Day 3 included German veteran Tommy Haas, Swiss seed Stanislas Wawrinka, who continued his good form in 2013 with a hard-fought win over the Dutchman De Bakker, and the Russian Mikhail Youzhny. Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov’s patchy start to the season continued with a disappointing loss to the Russian veteran Tursunov, whilst there was disappointment too for Bernard Tomic and Florian Mayer, who were both forced to re ...
Top seeds Spain moved to the brink of a shock Davis Cup exit on Friday when their weakened team slumped to a 2-0 deficit at the hands of Canada in a world group, first round tie played on lightning quick Vancouver hardcourts.

Ferrer takes aim Thursday, 24 January, 2013 By Matt Cronin Share this David Ferrer plays Novak Djokovic tougher than anyone outside of the top four, which will make their Thursday night Australian Open semifinal a must-see affair. Djokovic is well aware that the never-say-die Spaniard can run with him, and would happily engage in a six-hour marathon if that was what it took to pull off a victory. Ferrer is coming off a remarkable five-set win over Nicolas Almagro in the quarterfinals when he came from two sets down to defeat his compatriot, while Djokovic made the final four after a thorough four-set defeat of Czech Tomas Berdych, which he was able to pull off despite having to play more than five hours in a dramatic win over Stanislas Wawrinka two days earlier. While Djokovic had his way with Ferrer in the quarterfinals in Melbourne last year and the US Open on outdoor hard courts, Ferrer did take the Serbian down at the 2010 ATP finals and 2011 Madrid. Clearly, three-time Australian Open champion has be ...

World Sports News Open task for Ivanovic against Radwanska Serbian fan favourite Ana Ivanovic faces a huge challenge against Polish juggernaut Agnieszka Radwanska as they vie for an Australian Open quarter-final berth on Sunday night. Former world No.1 Ivanovic is the closest thing left to a local hope in the men's or women's singles draws at Melbourne Park after Bernard Tomic's exit on Saturday night, given she has relatives and a healthy supporter base in Melbourne. But her form is not as impressive as that of fourth seed Radwanska, who has won 12 straight matches so far this year, including tournament victories in Auckland and Sydney, all in straight sets. Highlighting the magnitude of Ivanovic's task, Radwanska has also won her past four meetings with the Serb, the past three of those without losing a set. Men's world No.1 Novak Djokovic, on a 17-match Winning Streak at Melbourne Park, can expect his biggest test of the tournament so far when he meets Swiss 15th seed Stanislas Wawrinka on Sunday night ...

Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer will play for Cincinnati Masters title on Sunday. Beat Juan Del Potro and Stanislas Wawrinka respectively.
Roger Federer is one victory away from filling the last space in his creaking trophy cabinet after beating Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro in a four hour 26 minute epic to reach the Olympic men's singles final at Wimbledon on Friday. The 30-year-old Swiss, who added a 17th Grand Slam title to his collection last month on the same Centre Court, survived a record-breaking scrap to win 3-6 7-6 19-17 in the longest men's three-set match played in the professional era. The third set alone took an astonishing 163 minutes with Federer, who served for the match at 10-9 but was broken to love, claiming victory when his exhausted opponent fired an attempted backhand pass into the net. Federer won doubles gold in Beijing four years ago with Stanislas Wawrinka but had never previously reached an Olympics singles final. He will face either world number two Novak Djokovic from Serbia or Britain's Andy Murray, whom he beat to win a seventh Wimbledon singles title, on Sunday. "It was a big match obviously. Very tough fro ...
