Great Rivalries: Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert

Published: September 24, 2010

So the final Major of the year has ended too. New records were created, history was made, and future projections are being interpolated. Amidst all this, though, a lull has been created. The same month long lull which you face after the completion of Australian Open, with useless hard court tournaments like Indian Wells and Miami (I frankly don’t understand the need to play these tournaments... 

Need for Speed: Comparing the Court Speeds at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open

Published: September 16, 2010

commentNo Comments

There is a very famous video on YouTube (starts at 6:20) where Jason Goodall compares the speed at which a Roger Federer’s serve reaches the returner at Wimbledon 2003 and 2008 respectively. In both videos, Federer had served at 126mph and in 2008, the ball reached the returner at 9mph lesser compared to the one in 2003 (a little less than 20% difference). There is a general consensus that the... 

Rafael Nadal: Rebirth

Published: September 14, 2010

commentNo Comments

When Rafael Nadal won his first two French Open titles in 2005 and 2006, people said he was a typical Spanish clay court grinder who would fail to win a Grand Slam outside Paris, just like the Spaniards of the 90s. He reached the finals in ’06 and ’07, and won arguably the greatest match of all time by beating Roger Federer, the best grass court player of the era, in the ’08 Wimbledon... 

US Open 2010: Novak Djokovic Needs To Run on His Adrenaline

Published: September 12, 2010

Surreal. This was the feeling after watching Novak Djokovic finally conquer the demons of Roger Federer at the US Open and won a humdinger ending at 7-5 in the fifth. The match—while it had its low moments (especially the scratchy play by Federer in the even sets)—had more than enough high moments, especially in the fifth set. The quality of the match went to another level with a battle... 

US Open 2010: Semifinals Preview, Gearing Up for the Federer-Nadal Final

Published: September 10, 2010

It is written in the stars. It is written in destiny. It is meant to be. If Melbourne, Paris, and London have had a taste of the most riveting rivalry of all time, why shouldn’t New York? And the stars have aligned so far—be it the exit of Andy Murray early in the tournament or the much too windy conditions in the Big Apple that has made the two guys in consideration stronger and their... 

US Open 2010: The Signature Match

Published: September 3, 2010

commentNo Comments

There are four Grand Slams in one year, and 40 in a decade. Despite the importance we attach to these major events, the tennis world is lucky to have so many major tournaments in a year, unlike cricket or football in which each sport culminates once every four years in a World Cup. This abundance also means that it becomes very difficult for one major to stand out among the crowd. Hence, one major... 

Path Towards Glory: Roger Federer’s Interview in 2001

Published: August 19, 2010

commentNo Comments

After a month long lull, the tennis season is back again in full sprint. Toronto is already over, and Cincinnati is well underway, so there is plenty of news for a tennis fan to stay busy. I have been following Cincinnati this week too, but it is interesting how my interest level for the first few rounds dropped significantly for this tournament compared to what it was for Toronto. I guess the month... 

Andy Murray: Comfort Outside the Comfort Zone

Published: August 16, 2010

commentNo Comments

As Roger Federer’s forehand lob went outside the baseline on the championship point, Andy Murray let out a slight scream of joy, went to his support crew for a little celebration, and looked happy. When he gave the presentation speech, though, the same elation was replaced by contention. So was his body language while collecting the trophy, staging the champion’s walk, and posing for... 

Roger’s Cup, Toronto Masters: When Push Comes To Shove

Published: August 15, 2010

commentNo Comments

Two weeks ago, Roger Federer’s era was almost over, and even winning a slam for the champion was considered a monumental task. As of today, Federer is the favorite to win the Roger’s Cup at Toronto (you think?), and is probably a bigger favorite than Rafael Nadal at the U. S. Open. Two weeks ago, Federer was criticized for his post-match comments after his loss against Thomas Berdych at... 

Roger’s Cup, Toronto Masters: Ice-Berd

Published: August 14, 2010

That Thomas Berdych has firepower in his tennis has never been in question ever since 2004 when he beat Roger Federer for the first time in the Olympics. And the firepower was definitely on display against the same opponent today in Toronto. The question of that firepower causing mass scale destruction has—call it a paradox—always depended on the presence of Ice.  The absence of ice,...
