Marin Cilic Beats Kei Nishikori in a US Open Final No One Cared About

Posted on 9 Sep, 2014, by in Tennis

The problem with the 2014 US Open final in the broader sense? Marin Cilic and Kei Nishikori aren’t household names – not players who are known for people who are only slightly interested in Tennis, usually awaken when a Grand Slam Final pops up. The Croatian beat the Japanese player in a final that showed this is no longer a top 4 tour, yet it’s going to take some time getting used to it. More

Novak Djokovic – US Open is His for the Taking

Posted on 4 Sep, 2014, by in Tennis

It’s been three years since Novak Djokovic won the US Open, a tournament he usually shines in. By beating Andy Murray he knocked out one of the only two players who have beaten him in New York over the last four years, and the other one isn’t even in the tournament to begin with. He didn’t go in to the Grand Slam with a hot streak behind him, but he is finding his best tennis at the right time. More

Posted on 3 Sep, 2014, by in Tennis

It’s been an easy road for Roger Federer so far in the 2014 US Open, and it’s not that difficult of a journey, at least to the final, and maybe his 18th Grand Slam title.

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.
