Rome 2012: Rafael Nadal Beats David Ferrer, Books His Place in the Final

Published: May 19, 2012

The score read 7-6 (6), 6-0 once the two-hour-plus battle between Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer had ended. But it doesn’t quite do the match justice. In my preview of the two semis, I envisioned Rafa winning in straights, as he simply does everything a bit better. Today, that wasn’t quite true—in the first set, at least. David...

We’ve come to the final weekend and we have the usual suspects playing one another. The Big Three are still in it and David Ferrer, the ever consistent clay-courter, has joined them in the semis.  Rome is the final tournament before the clay season culminates in the French Open on the 27th of May. Novak Djokovic is the defending champion having defeated Rafael Nadal 6-4, 6-4 in one of the... 

French Open 2012: Why There Are Reasons for Hope When It Comes to Roger Federer

Published: May 14, 2012

World No. 2 Roger Federer is fresh of a win in Madrid, but has yet to make his debut on normal, outdoor clay this season. As he’s questionable for this week in Rome, there’s a chance he might go into the year’s second slam with no match practice on red clay.  It’s well-known that Federer is without a slam win in the last eight matches, an eternity for his standards. While...

Rafael Nadal is out of Madrid losing to Fernando Verdasco for the first time in 14 matches. Novak Djokovic is out, losing to Janko Tipsarevic for the first time while in a healthy state.  David Ferrer is–less surprisingly–also out, losing for the 13th consecutive time to Roger Federer.  The remaining four semifinalists: Federer, Tipsarevic, Juan Martin del Potro and Tomas Berdych... 

Milos Raonic: Possibly the Biggest Threat to the Big Three (Four) on Any Surface

Published: May 11, 2012

Milos Raonic continues to impress me. He first caught my attention last year at the Australian Open, where he got to the fourth round despite having to qualify for the tournament.  In the process, he beat quality players such as Michael Llodra and Mikhail Youzhny before falling to David Ferrer in four.  He continued to win San Jose, beating a displeased Fernando Verdasco in the final.... 

Madrid Open 2012: Roger Federer Versus Milos Raonic in a 2nd Round Blockbuster

Up and comer Milos Raonic set up an intriguing second round clash with world No. 3 Roger Federer. Raonic was newcomer of the year in 2011 and continues to progress this year. Not exactly a veteran on clay, Raonic took out Nicolas Almagro and Andy Murray in Barcelona before falling to David Ferrer in two tiebreaks in the semis. Here in Madrid, he just beat David Nalbandian 6-4, 6-4. Then he took down... 

Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic: Who’s Best at Coming from Behind?

Published: April 16, 2012

commentNo Comments

In my previous article, I asked who’s the best front-runner among today’s top four. The answer was not Roger Federer, but Novak Djokovic or Andy Murray, depending on definition. Today, I ask who’s best at coming from behind. Again, this is a category where we have certain expectations. Many fans and pundits alike will say that you can never count out Nadal, no matter the score. This... 

Ivan Ljubicic Retires from Tour: A Look at Some of His Career Highlights

Today, 33-year-old Ivan Ljubicic from Croatia retired from the ATP tour. It was known that he would do so at his home tournament, Monte Carlo, this year; the question merely was how far he would go in the tournament.  In the end, his 15 years on the ATP tour ended when he lost in the first round against countryman Ivan Dodig, 6-0, 6-3. That marks a fitting passing of the torch to a countryman... 

Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray: Miami Preview

Published: March 21, 2012

Who can stop Roger Federer‘s 15 match winning streak? Will Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal reestablish their dual dominance (with Djokovic winning and Rafa as the bridesmaid)? Those are the questions going into the Miami Masters. The 30-year-old veteran Federer holds an impressive sway over the ATP Tour at the moment, going on a 39-2 tear since the US Open. The only problem? He lost the second... 

Men’s Tennis: The Big One, Big Two, Big Three or Big Four?

The 2011 season has seen a new king rise to the tennis throne. Novak Djokovic surpassed both Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, a duo that had ruled tennis from 2004 onwards.  Those three men have been ranked No. 1-3 in different order for almost every single week since mid-2007. A good year later, Andy Murray joined them at the top of mens’ tennis and the four of them have occupied those four...
