First Grand Slam Without Roger Federer & Rafael Nadal in the Third Round Since 2003

Posted on 26 Jun, 2013, by in Tennis

With all due respect to Andy Murray & Novak Djokovic, the two biggest tennis stars in the world are still Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal and now, for the first time since the French Open in 2003, both of them are out before the third round. More

Wimbledon Favorites – Roger Federer Out, Andy Murray In

Posted on 17 Jun, 2013, by in Tennis

While it would be nice to consider more than two players for the 2013 Wimbledon title (Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic obviously), the recent tournament wins by Roger Federer and Andy Murray don’t really change the current status quo, although it would be a lot more surprising to see Federer go all the way and not Murray if it came down to those two.

Rafael Nadal Makes Watching the Roland Garros Almost Boring

Posted on 9 Jun, 2013, by in Tennis

Nine times Rafael Nadal has played at the Roland Garros in Paris, and eight times now he has left the clay courts of the French Open as a champion, more than anyone has ever won in a single grand slam tournament, reaching the achievement after a rather anti-climatic final against David Ferrer.

Rafael Nadal Continues to Humiliate Roger Federer On Clay

Posted on 19 May, 2013, by in Tennis

Nothing has changed over the years. It actually seems to be getting more one-sided. The venue? Rome, but it doesn’t really matter. While Roger Federer keeps getting older and weaker in both body and mind, Rafael Nadal is having one hell of a comeback season, winning his sixth title in 2013, making everyone who doubted his ability to return from a serious knee injury eat their words.

Even though it seems the era of the current top 4 in Men’s tennis is coming to somewhat of an end or a change, it still is the one most appealing factor in today’s game.

Roger Federer, the Worst Season of His Career

Posted on 10 May, 2013, by in Tennis

Taking a two month break hasn’t helped Roger Federer regain his dominance. He lost in the third round of the Madrid Masters, making it the third tournament in 2013 that he won in the previous year which he won’t reclaim. As the Roland Garros approaches, it seems the most decorated player in the history of the sport is quite far off his best or anything remotely close to that, and the end people have been speaking of for a very long time is getting closer and closer.

Novak Djokovic Will be Remembered as Better Than Rafael Nadal

Posted on 21 Apr, 2013, by in Tennis

The situation for Rafael Nadal at this stage of his career is quite different than it is for Novak Djokovic. Unless what we saw in the Monte Carlo final was a rusty Nadal who still needs more time to find his way back to the top of the game, this is as good as it gets. A final on clay, with the world’s number one standing in his way. When the careers of both men will be over, the Serb will be remembered as the better player. More

Posted on 18 Mar, 2013, by in Tennis

We’re barely in the middle of March, but it’s hard to find a better fit than Rafael Nadal for comeback of the year, winning his first Hard Court title in nearly 3 years after almost looking like someone who won’t be playing tennis for much longer, maybe even giving up the sport. More
