Federer out to continue revival 23 February By Richard Eaton Dubai – Roger Federer's performance in reaching the semi-final of the Australian Open last month is the first step in a mini-revival of tennis' great legend. This week could see the second. That is the scenario Federer intends pursuing when he returns to the ATP Tour and tries to win back the title at his adopted second home at the Dubai Open. Victories over Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Melbourne will be followed by a chance to challenge Novak Djokovic, the top-seeded titleholder, here. Although the formidable Serb is seeking a record fifth Dubai title, Federer has a better record against Djokovic than against Rafael Nadal, the man who halted him last month, and he feels encouraged by his performances in the first Grand Slam of the year. “I think it has been a very good start to the season for me overall, “ Federer said. “I have played some really good tennis. I still feel my best tennis is ahead of me right now. “So I'm looki ...
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 ...
Nadal's route to the semi-final Rafael Nadal has spent 11 hours and 32 minutes on court negotiating his way to the semi-finals (which is nearly an hour more than Federer). He needed just 41 minutes to see off Bernard Tomic in the first round after the young Australian retired hurt at the end of the first set. The Spaniard then went on to beat qualifier Thanasi Kokkinakis, Frenchman Gael Monfils and 16th seed Kei Nishikori in straight sets before coming up against Grigor Dimitrov in the quarter-finals. The Bulgarian put up a fight but Nadal eventually came through 3-6 7-6 (7-3) 7-6 (9-7) 6-2 Federer's route to the semi-final This is Federer's 11th consecutive Australian Open semi- final but how did he get to this point? Read carefully and I shall tell you. The sixth seed did not drop a set on his way to the quarter- finals, beating James Duckworth, Blaz Kavcic, Teymuraz Gabashvili and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. The four-time Aussie Open champion then came up against Britain's Andy Murray, of course, but rolled ba ...
Fed holds firm to make semis Wednesday, 22 January, 2014 By Matt Clayton Share this Roger Federer has advanced to his 11th consecutive Australian Open semifinal, downing Andy Murray 6-3 6-4 6-7(6) 6-3 on Wednesday night to advance to a semifinal meeting with Rafael Nadal. The four-time Australian Open champion made amends for a five-set semifinal loss to Murray at Melbourne Park 12 months ago, ending the Scot’s four-year run of a semifinal finish or better at Rod Laver Arena. That the match lasted three hours and 20 minutes looked decidedly unlikely after the Swiss started with a flurry. Federer picked up where he left off in the fourth round against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Monday, careering through the first set in just 31 minutes while nailing 76 per cent of his first services and hitting nine winners. The Swiss broke Murray in the fourth game to take a 3-1 lead, and authoritatively served out the set, his forehand prominent. The second set followed a similar pattern, Federer breaking the Scot in the fi ...
Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Victoria Azarenka advance Roger Federer produced a magnificent display to beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in straight sets at the Australian Open. The 17-time Grand Slam champion beat the Frenchman 6-3 7-5 6-4 to set up a quarter-final with Andy Murray. Rafael Nadal overcame a nasty blister and being called for time violations to beat Japan's 16th seed Kei Nishikori 7-6 (7-3) 7-5 7-6 (7-3). Victoria Azarenka remains on course for a third straight Australian Open title after she beat Sloane Stephens 6-3 6-2. The Belarusian's title hopes were boosted by third seed Maria Sharapova's surprise defeat by Dominika Cibulkova, 24 hours after Serena Williams was knocked out. Jelena Jankovic, the eighth seed, is also out after losing to Simona Halep.

NADAL FACES EARLY AUSSIE TEST IN MELBOURNE: Top seed and 2009 Australian Open champion Rafael Nadal faces an early Aussie test in his return to Melbourne Park. The World No. 1 opens his campaign with an encounter with home favourite Bernard Tomic in the first round, and could square off with 17 year old Thanasi Kokkinakis in the second. In-form Brisbane champion Lleyton Hewitt could be waiting in the Round of 16 as well, with a potential battle with fifth seed Juan Martin Del Potro in the quarter-finals. Nadal missed last year's tournament with a stomach virus. Four-time champion Roger Federer and three-time finalist Andy Murray will lead the charge in the other part of Nadal’s half, with 2008 runner-up Jo-Wilfried Tsonga seeded No. 10 and also in that quarter. Federer and Murray are on a collision course for a blockbuster quarter-final matchup in what would be a rematch of last year’s pulsating five-set semi-final. Federer opens against Australian wild card James Duckworth, while Murray encounters Ja ...
In the eyes and words of Rafael Nadal, tennis is a simple game. Perhaps the man he defeated yesterday to secure third place at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, would beg to differ. The Frenchman was firing monstrous serves – on a surface that has been unanimously dubbed by the players as the fastest they’ve played on this year – including 14 aces but still could not prevent a 7-6 (7/5), 6-3 defeat to Nadal. And while Nadal’s rivals like Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic have opted to bring in legends like Stefan Edberg and Boris Becker to reinforce their teams, Rafa is again keen to keep it simple and work with his tried and trusted team. Nadal, who has been coached by his Uncle Toni all his life, says he doesn’t need a tennis legend to guide him on tour. “My feeling is that is depends on the player,” said Nadal. “I think coaching tennis is not a big deal. We are not doing something very very difficult – tennis is a simple game at the end of the day. “It’s m ...

Djokovic has triumphed in Melbourne for the last three years running but his f ...
Timeline of Roger Federer's troubled 2013 Roger Federer's troubled 2013 season came to a suitably downbeat conclusion with a semi-final loss against Rafael Nadal in the ATP World Tour Finals on Sunday.

Wimbledon Update Sabine Lisicki - down but not out Sabine Lisicki And Crazy Wimbledon by Raul Raña John Mcenroe called Day 3 at Wimbledon the "craziest day ever" of the tournament, a day that witnessed the shock loss of champion Roger Federer to an opponent from Ukraine ranked below the top 100 in the world, the loss of Maria Sharapova, the withdrawal of Victoria Azarenka and Belgian Steve Darcis, Rafael Nadal's first round conqueror, and other top seeds due to the "slippery grass -" truly enough which led to many a tumble and fall among the players - Sharapova called the grass "dangerous," and the complaints became an issue with organizers.

Serena Williams saw her match streak end at 34 on Monday, and more importantly, her bid to repeat as Wimbledon champion. Germany's Sabine Lisicki topped Williams by scores of 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 on Centre Court, continuing a trend of upsets during the tournament's fortnight. Past Wimbledon champions Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova exited the tournament last week, while top contenders Victoria Azarenka and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga were among a spate of injury casualties. "I probably couldn't be more disappointed," Williams said. "I think I may have backed off of a success. I was playing something successful. I didn't continue that path. The result didn't go the way it could have gone had I continued to play the way I did in the second set." No ...
Wacky Wednesday at WimbledonSlips, but Federer Takes the Biggest Fall By NAILA-JEAN MEYERS WIMBLEDON, England — The carnage began early Wednesday at Wimbledon. Fifteen minutes into the first match on Court 3, the top-seeded American man, No. 18 John Isner, retired from his match against Adrian Mannarino with a left knee injury. By lunch, women’s No. 2 Victoria Azarenka and Steve Darcis, who upset Rafael Nadal in the first round Monday, had withdrawn because of injuries. At tea, a knee injury had forced No. 6 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to quit his match after three sets, and third-seeded Maria Sharapova and ninth-seeded Caroline Wozniacki had lost to qualifiers after slipping on court and requiring medical treatment. At dinner, after seven singles players had retired or withdrawn with injuries, the All England Club issued an extraordinary statement defending the state of its grass. And as the sun was setting to bring one of the strangest days in Wimbledon history to an end, the most unusual sight of all o ...

Murray wins in straight sets at Wimbledon LONDON (AP) -- Never has a routine, straight-sets victory been so remarkable. Britain's Andy Murray brought a small sense of order to Wacky Wednesday at Wimbledon. In a day of stunning upsets, ill-timed injuries and slips and biffs on the grass, his match was ordinary, his scoreline routine. His 6-3, 6-3, 7-5 victory over Yen-hsun Lu of Taiwan was notable only for not being notable - one of the rare times that could be said on a day when Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova lost, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga quit, Victoria Azarenka didn't even start and five more players, including the man who beat Rafael Nadal earlier in the week, also went out with injuries. ''You have to concentrate on yourself,'' Britain's top player said. ''I think when a lot of players get injured, the one thing is, you may be a little tentative yourself at the beginning of the matches, maybe not feel that comfortable throwing yourself around the court. But after the first few games, that normally goes a ...

World number one men's tennis player Novak Djokovic and seven-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal recently met in the semifinals of the French Open. The match was scheduled to begin at 7 a.m. ET and obviously the winner was going to play David Ferrer or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Sunday’s final. We all know who won the match by this time and that's not even a question, however, the question is who the best tennis players player today?
Tennis Roger Federer's first title in 2013 came at a place where he's had much success. The Swiss superstar rallied past Russian Mikhail Youzhny by a 6-7 (5-7), 6-3, 6-4 margin to capture his sixth Gerry Weber Open title. In the process, Federer improved to 15-0 all-time against Youzhny. Federer lost to Rafael Nadal in his other final this year last month in Rome. He was a quarterfinal loser to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga last weekend at the French Open, but was able to turn around his season on his favorite surface. Grass has always suited Federer well. Seven of his record 17 Grand Slam titles have come on the famed lawns of Wimbledon, where he will return later this month as defending champion. Federer, who is now 6-2 in title matches in Halle, improved to 121-17 on grass. Federer previously won this tournament from 2003-06 and again in 2008. He lost to Lleyton Hewitt in the 2010 finale before falling to Tommy Haas last year. "I'm very happy. It was a great week for me and my family," said Federer, who won his 7 ...

Novak Djokovic vs. Rafael Nadal When the draw was made days before the tournament, all eyes were on which half of the draw the No. 3 seed, Rafael Nadal, would land. He landed in the top, with No. 1 Novak Djokovic, setting up what has been called a de facto final. Whoever wins this match will go into the final as an overwhelming favorite (though perhaps not a crowd favorite if the opponent is France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga). Though his more storied rivalry is with Roger Federer, Nadal has actually played Djokovic more often: this will Nadal’s 35th meeting with Djokovic, compared to 30 against Federer. It is a more competitive rivalry, as well, with Djokovic having won 15 times against Nadal, compared to only 10 wins for Federer. Djokovic has won 8 of his last 11 meetings with Nadal, including 3 of their 6 on clay. In their most recent meeting in April, in the final of Monte Carlo, Djokovic nearly bageled Nadal in the first set before holding on for a 6-2, 7-6 (1) victory in wet conditions that dampened Na ...
5 things to watch in French Open men's semifinals Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will face each other in a French Open semifinal that feels like a final. Djokovic is trying to win his first championship at Roland Garros to complete a career Grand Slam. Nadal is trying to become the only man to win eight titles at one major tournament. ``You are not playing a match for a title. You are just playing a match to be in the final,'' Nadal said. ``Big difference.'' Theirs is not the only semifinal Friday, of course. No. 4-seeded David Ferrer of Spain plays No. 6 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France in the other. Djokovic vs. Nadal goes on court first at 1 p.m. local time (6 a.m. EDT), and here are five things - one per set, perhaps - to watch: --- ONLY A SEMIFINAL The past 11 matches between Djokovic and Nadal were in championship matches, including five at Grand Slam tournaments (Djokovic won three). But while Djokovic is ranked and seeded No. 1, Nadal slipped in the rankings while missing seven months with a left kne ...
Not the Usual Suspects The Big Four, consisting of Andy Murray, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, have been almost unbreakable in the past five years when it comes to who will appear in any Grand Slam semi-final. But, with Murray's withdrawal from the event and Federer's loss in the quarterfinals to Tsonga, the potential opponent in the final (for Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal) will either be Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Spaniard David Ferrer. This will mark the first time a player outside of the Big Four will play in a Major final since Tomas Berdych faced Rafael Nadal at the end of the 2010 Wimbledon fortnight. Surely the odds will not be in Tsonga or Ferrer's favor, but they have made it this far and would only need to pull off one more upset to win. The Frenchman lost in his only previous Major final to Novak Djokovic at the 2008 Australian Open while Ferrer has never reached the championship match before.
So the semi-finals are set. For the ladies seed Serena Williams will play last year's finalist Sara Errani. Maria Sharapova will play Victoria Azarenka, a rematch of last year's Australian Open Final and US Open semi-final, Azarenka won both of them. On the men's side, its Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and David Ferrer. The other semi-final is Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.
Who would you like to see face off in the 2013 Roland Garros Finals? A. Rafael Nadal vs. David Ferrer B. Rafael Nadal vs. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga C. Novak Djokovic vs. David Ferrer D. Novak Djokovic vs. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
When asked if Friday's semifinal showdown with Novak Djokovic is basically a final, Rafael Nadal said that he wasn't treating it as a final, but only as a semifinal. He basically downplayed the match in the sense that he didn't act as if whoever wins their semifinal match will win Roland Garros for sure. I think this is smart of him to say and think. After seeing what Jo-Wilfried Tsonga did to Roger Federer, there is no reason to think that Tsonga couldn't beat Nole or Rafa provided he gets passed Ferrer. Whoever comes out on top between Nole and Rafa will be heavily favored and should win, but to call it a final is disrespectful to Tsonga and Ferrer. Especially Tsonga given that he has proven he can take out members of the big four in a Grand Slam.
