Posted on 7 Jul, 2014, by in Tennis

The fans cheered for Novak Djokovic at the end of another epic Wimbledon final, beating Roger Federer in five sets, out of courtesy and habit.

Rafael Nadal Can’t Lose in the French Open, Not Even to Novak Djokovic

Posted on 8 Jun, 2014, by in Tennis

The greatest clay court player of all time, Rafael Nadal, proved for the ninth time in his career that beating him in Paris, a best of five match in the French Open, is an almost impossible feat, even if he is far from his best and the player standing on the other side, Novak Djokovic, is actually better.

Novak Djokovic – The Best Player in Tennis Once Again

Posted on 19 May, 2014, by in Tennis

We’re not used to seeing Rafael Nadal lose on clay so much, even if it is against Novak Djokovic. The Serbian star and number two in the world beat Rafael Nadal for the second time this season in a Masters tournament final, this time claiming the Italian Open in Rome to make it his third ATP 1000 title, and maybe placing himself as the favorite to win the Roland Garros for the first time in his career.

Wawrinka Beats Federer – Not a One and Done

Posted on 22 Apr, 2014, by in Tennis

Winning a big one is hard, but consistency and greatness is even more difficult. The Monte Carlo Masters isn’t a Grand Slam, but it’s an indication that Stansilas Wawrinka might be here for more than just a short period of dominance, as he walked all over Roger Federer to win his first ATP 1000 tournament.

Novak Djokovic – Once Again the Best Player in the World

Posted on 31 Mar, 2014, by in Tennis

There’s something about Key Biscane and the Miami Masters (or Sony Open) that brings out the best in Novak Djokovic, beating Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-3, once again denying the Spaniard and world’s number one from winning one of the few Masters tournament he has yet to win. More

Roger Federer – As Good as Novak Djokovic Allowed Him to be

Posted on 17 Mar, 2014, by in Tennis

For a moment there, everything was perfect. The crowd was booming for Roger Federer, just taking a 6-5 lead in the third set of the Indian Wells Masters final over Novak Djokovic, seemingly in control and ready to win the match and the title. And then everything went south – the bad and shaky backhand, and an opponent that most of the time is simply better than him. More

In a world with players who feel they need to be paid more for the exhausting schedule they’re involved in, a project like the International Premier Tennis League was bound to pop up sooner or later, and Rafael Nadal will be the premier name of this new competition, which will probably involve Andy Murray on the men’s side, while Victoria Azarenka is also going to be part of it.

Roger Federer Still After the One Title he Doesn’t Have

Posted on 30 Jan, 2014, by in Tennis

Grand Slam titles? Check. Olympic gold medal? In doubles, but also check. The Davis Cup? That’s something that Roger Federer has failed to win for Switzerland and himself, but this weekend might be the last chance for him to get his hands on that title. More

Is This the End of the Top 4 Era?

Posted on 28 Jan, 2014, by in Tennis

Stanislas Wawrinka beating Rafael Nadal in the final of the 2014 Australian Open hopefully signals some sort of change in men’s tennis and ushers in some sort of new era of parity, which means that it’s not going to be about Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Roger Federer winning Grand Slam titles.

Roger Federer is still the all-time leader with 17, and Rafael Nadal has some way to go before he catches up, stuck on 13. By that measurement alone Federer remains the greatest player of all time.
