Back in the Loop Down Under I missed Rafa and I'm glad he's back Rafael Nadal got back to winning ways with a comfortable 6-3 6-2 6-2 triumph over Russian Mikhail Youzhny. Nadal, 28 lost on his comeback from a wrist injury and appendicitis against Germany's Michael Berrer at the Qatar Open earlier this month, but he looked much more like his old self here. Nadal, seeded third Down Under, needed just one hour and 49 minutes to dispatch world number 49 Nadal, who had played only eight matches since Wimbledon last year, started off somewhat tentatively, but soon broke Youzhny to go 3-2 up with a fine forehand winner and never looked back from there. The Spaniard began to find his groove on serve in the second set, with Youzhny having no answer to the power and variety of the third seed. Earlier this week, Nadal wrote off his chances of winning a second Australian Open in Melbourne this year, but if he can get through the first week of competition he might have to revise his prediction.

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.

Rafael Nadal favorite to win the Australian Open: Wally Masur
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 ...
World number one Rafael Nadal faces Stanislas Wawrinka in the Australian Open Final after beating Roger Federer in straight sets.
Roland Garros FULL DRAW ANALYSIS, PREVIEW AND PREDICTIONS! POSSIBLE OPPONENTS: Rafael Nadal: 1R - Robby Ginepri 2R - Paul-Henri Mathieu/Dominic Thiem 3R - Vasek Pospisil 4R - Nicolas Almagro/Tommy Haas QF - Grigor Dimitrov/David Ferrer SF - Stanislas Wawrinka/Andy Murray F - Novak Djokovic/Roger Federer VERDICT - Hard draw. Conditions at RG seem to be damp, which means a big hitter might be able to trouble Rafa early in the tournament (like last year, Brands and Klizan). He doesn't have any big hitters in the early rounds except for Pospisil, so a comfortable first three rounds look likely. However, he might face the two men who heralded his fall during this claycourt season, back-to-back, Almagro and Ferrer. Neither Almagro nor Ferrer have done anything against him at RG, though (Rafa has beaten Ferrer 6-2, 6-2, 6-0 and Almagro 6-1, 6-1, 6-1 in 2012 and 2008 respectively). If he finds his form and gets through that he will have a potential rematch against his Australian Open conqueror, Wawrinka. Rafa own ...

This Sunday will almost surely put Rafael Nadal's mark of Slam Championships at 14, tying the immortal Pete Sampras and putting him a mere three titles from catching Roger Federer for the all time lead, and this is something most people are choosing not to discuss openly in public, most likely due to the fact that Federer is still playing competitively. With respects to Roy Emerson, Rod Laver, Björn Borg, and Jimmy Conners, most experts would rank these three, in some order, as tennis's all-time great players. However, a further review would put the order in a rather surprising fashion. First, a look at Slam wins. Federer has won the Australian Open four times, Roland Garros once, Wimbledon seven times, and the US Open five times, for a total of 17 Slam victories. Sampras has won the Australian twice, never the French, seven Wimbledons, and five US Opens, for a total of 14. Assuming Nadal wins on Sunday as the heavy favorite against even a confident Wawrinka, he would be the holder of two Australian Open ...

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, ...

WORLD no. 1 Rafael Nadal holds a commanding 22-10 head-to-head lead over fellow Australian Open semi-finalist Roger Federer in what is widely regarded as the greatest tennis rivalry of all time.
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 ...

Bernard Tomic had to retire from his first-round match against Rafael Nadal last week at the Australian Open and said after he'd be out for 12 weeks
Roger Federer has set up a 33rd instalment of his great rivalry with Rafael Nadal with a drama-charged Australian Open quarter-final triumph over Andy Murray.
Rafa's road meets rising star Wednesday, 22 January, 2014 By Alexandra Willis Share this Rafael Nadal has rather a lot on his plate at the moment. Blisters on his racket hand, broken shoelaces, time violations, learning new words. And the pressure of expectation. If Nadal wins this title, his second Australian Open, not only will he equal Pete Sampras’s total haul of 14 Grand Slam singles titles - which not so long ago was deemed to be an unpassable benchmark - he will also become the first player to complete the career Grand Slam, twice over. But what drives Nadal forwards each day is not records or requirements. It is his extraordinary motivation to be the best he can be. That if he just fights harder, he will come out on top. “When I am not playing that well, I run and I fight for every point as I did today,” Nadal remarked after his hair-splitting three-set win over Kei Nishikori. “I go on court trying to play my best every day, trying to play aggressive. Some days you play better, some days y ...

Tennis | 2014 Australian Open | Day 2 | Night Session It’s been a very hot and extraordinary day at Melbourne Park. Retirements, five-set epics, questions raised over playing in the heat, and the bad news there is, that the next 3 days are expected to be the same! Roger Federer was too good against James Duckworth, winning 4, 4 and 2. From there, it only got worse for the Australians, Lleyton went down swinging in five, after being two sets down, and Bernard Tomic only lasted a set against Rafael Nadal. For those not up-to-speed, Tomic was injured in the opening games, and limped his way through the first set, which Rafa won 6 games to 4, before Bernard retired due to that injury just before we got underway in the 2nd Set.. Maria Sharapova made light work of Bethanie Mattek-Sands from the USA. The world number 3 advanced 6-3, 6-4. Gilles Simon won an epic out on Court 7. He was pushed to five by German Daniel Brands, and it went well into overtime, with Simon eventually winning 16-14 in that fifth and d ...

Rafael Nadal through after Bernard Tomic suffers groin injury at Australian Open
Leyton Hewitt is out, can Bernard Tomic cause the upset and knock Rafael Nadal out of the Australian Open? LIVE SCORES:
One of the biggest bets of this month is Australian Open 2014 outright where I found huge value on this odds in favor of Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic. I really think that in this moment nobody can take the idea out of Djokovic winning Australian Open fith time in his carreer. If he does so, he will be the first ever professional player to take five titles in Australian tournamet. Djokovic, who took titles in 2008, 2011, 2012 and 2013 is equal with Roger Federrer (2004, 2006, 2007 and 2010) and legendary Andre Agasi (1995, 2000, 2001 and 2003) will sure be motivated to play another one of his greatest tournaments in Australia on where he enjoys playing favorite hard surface and yet i believe he will be the first professional player to make this record of five titles at Australian Open since Roy Emerson made six titles but in non profesional era (1961, 1963, '64, '65, '66 and '67). Rafael Nadal, who is the only player capable of destroying Djokovic's game is far away from his best form and has alrea ...
