    Has any tennis player ever faced a challenge as complex and fundamentally bizarre as the one staring Rafael Nadal in the face right now? Has anyone ever stood gazing at a mountain that has been as familiar, friendly, and tractable, yet in what seems like an instant turned so forbidding, towering, and shrouded in mist? What is sure to be the most riveting of Rafael Nadal’s 11 French Open campaigns begins this week. The nine-time champion is seeded a lowly No. 6, with tournament officials having decided that despite his numerous feats of derring-do in the 16th arrondissement, the Spaniard’s…
  • Andy's World

    7 May 2015 | 1:44 pm
    Andy Murray won the first ATP clay-court title of his career a few days ago in Munich. Just why it took Murray so long to sharpen up his game on clay is an interesting issue that’s difficult to resolve, but the very question supports the idea that the 27-year-old, recently married Scot is a complex man with a complicated tennis game. That’s quite a combination. This calls for a little backstory: Murray left Scotland for Barcelona, Spain, at age 15. He subsequently trained on the red clay courts at the Sanchez-Casal Academy, often under the watchful eye of a versatile all-around master of…

    Occasionally, sports coughs up an athlete who becomes famous, even beloved, less for his or her athletic accomplishments or prowess than some mysterious quality of personality, or of the public’s unspoken need. For an extreme example, look at Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards, whose heroic failure as a Britain’s first ski jumper in 1988 endeared him to a worldwide audience. And consider the author of “Linsanity,” New York City’s wild if short-lived love affair with Jeremy Lin, a point guard for the NBA’s New York Knicks. A modest, unassuming, undrafted former Harvard student, Lin was…

    Is there a way to be confidently un-confident? That’s the question hovering over the head of Rafael Nadal as the European clay-court season begins. For most players, it will be a long and leisurely journey to the grand finale in Paris. For the five-time defending French Open champion, it may also be a perilous adventure. All eyes will be on Nadal in the weeks to come as he struggles with a double-barreled problem. First, the anxiety that has haunted him thus far this year, persistent and well-hidden as a pebble in his shoe. And then there’s Novak Djokovic, the ultra-dedicated player who…

    28 May 2015 | 8:54 am
    Svetlana Kuznetsova and Francesca Schiavone have both won the French Open in their careers, in 2009 and 2010, respectively, and their 2011 Australian Open clash has remained the longest Grand Slam women's match in history. Schiavone was the one who won that 2011 marathon and today the Italian recorded victory in yet another grinder: after three hours and 49 minutes the oldest player left in the draw celebrated a 6-7(11) 7-5 10-8 win in a match that turns out to be the third longest in Roland Garros history. Journalists and fans always like to compare stats and recognize records,…

    27 May 2015 | 12:36 pm
    Croatian world No.70 Mirjana Lucic Baroni combined aggressiveness and consistency to stun the 2014 French Open runner-up Simona Halep in the second round of this year's edition of the tournament. It may be hard to believe, but Lucic Baroni now has a 2-0 record against the third-ranked Romanian, having upset her early at another Grand Slam, last year in the third round of the US Open. What's interesting about Lucic Baroni is that the 33-year-old turned pro back in 1997 and last year she won her first WTA title after a 16-year hiatus, beating Venus Williams in the final of Quebec,…

    Serena Williams started her probably-long 2015 French Open run with a 6-2 6-3 victory over Czech Andrea Hlavackova. After storming to a 3-0 lead, Williams gave away two straight games to her opponent, maybe even a bit distracted by her own laugh that followed a clumsy move that resulted in Hlavackova's ball hitting Serena's body, but all in all the American recorded a straightforward win and safely moved into the second round. From 3-2 in the first set, Serena won six games in a row. The Williams vs. Hlavackova match-up had not been awaited as a blockbuster first round, but…

    Fifth seed Caroline Wozniacki opened her French Open campaign with a 6-3 6-0 victory over Karin Knapp, the Italian that has arrived in Paris straight from winning a title in Nuremberg. The peculiar thing about this match was that the first four games lasted more than half an hour, but soon afterwards the fifth-ranked Dane took firm control of the match, winning the last eight games to book her place in the second round. Wozniacki, who hit just nine unforced errors, was helped by Knapp's 50. On a different note, here's how Caro, who next plays Julia Goerges, the winner over CoCo…

  • A Shocker of a French Open Preview

    22 May 2015 | 7:31 pm
    Spoiler alert - this French Open preview ends with Novak Djokovic capturing his maiden and elusive title at Roland Garros. That's right, our shocker of a preview delivers what pretty much every tennis "expert" and fan alike is already expecting to happen in two week's time. So how can we claim that this is somehow a surprise? Here's why...

    By Mike McIntyre I've always enjoyed the ups and downs that a year on the ATP Tour can bring us. When you have a season that lasts from January (or even the end of December) until November you are bound to have ebbs and flows and an ever changing wave of momentum that sees players rise and fall at different times in the schedule. Seemingly impervious to these ups and downs in recent years have been Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal who currently sit at number one and two in the Emirates World Rankings. Yet as the final Grand Slam of 2014 is set to begin, both of these steady talents find…

    There's that feeling of "settling in." The French Open (or whatever, but the French is my favorite) is real and in progress. And we always learn some things. For example, today, we learned that Genie Bouchard is as much of a mess as she was the last time we saw her. Bouchard, who has obviously lost muscle weight, wasn't moving at all like she did last year, and she made careless errors that appeared to be coming from a much less experienced player. I'm calling this as "beyond slump."We learned, also, that Bouchard's opponent, Kiki Mladenovic, is still battling the demon of nerves. Mladenovic,…

    ATP Backspin by Todd Spiker

  • French Open Day 3

    26 May 2015 | 7:43 pm
    Hey Y'all. Galileo here. Nothing much happened today on the third day, so a quick intro and then onto the main agenda. Do you miss the 70's? Tennis wise, Backspin does. Borg, Evert, Connors, Vilas, Navratilova, McEnroe and Evonne, too. Great players. Talented players. Forty years ago this is how it went for the seeds:Now that is intriguing. You had early upsets but enough good players that the latter rounds always delivered. That theme has stayed with the French for a long time. But this tournament there are no early juicy upsets. Nothing much is happening yet. Bouchard has gone in the ladies…

    Hey Y'all. Galileo here.When a seed or big name falls early, chaos reigns in their bit. When it's a lower seed, suddenly anyone can make the third round and from there it's just two wins to the quarterfinals. When a middling seed goes down it means that the eighth of the draw they happen to be in becomes a little more unbalanced. If any seed higher than eight goes out then all hell can break loose. When Serena or Sharapova loses early the feel and the atmosphere of a slam or tournament changes. When Djokovic loses or Federer capitulates there's suddenly a feeling of hope. It's the same for…

    24 May 2015 | 6:19 pm
    Hey Y'all. Galileo here. The Sunday addition has been a good idea. It sets up the tournament nicely. It eases us in and leaves us wanting more. So let's begin our warmup. But gently. =Suicide Pick=We all know how this works. Pick a player to win each round but you cannot pick them again. I'm in a little late but the first round is still going. Men's Singles: Verdasco [32] d. Daniel [Q]. Women's Singles: Barthel d. Kania PHILIPPE CHATRIER: FEDERER d. FALLA ...Federer has moved to 8-0 against Falla, though one of them was very close. Federer was always going to win but the ease had yet to be…

    Todd.Spiker
    22 May 2015 | 11:00 pm
    Hey Y'all. Galileo here. Grand Slam picks always create tension at HQ. Not between the people who work at HQ, but just in general. Todd takes 100 balls onto the clay court near the Clay Court wing and just serves till the frustration goes away. That's why he has such a good serve. The Clay wing of HQ is lovely, all red brick and sunshine. The French Open office is large and spacious. The statue of Chris and Rafa compliment each other nicely. The signed photo of Graf and the canvas of Borg hang side by side. But I digress. This year I have no clue. I usually blow these and Todd does pretty…

    The best players have dominated the French Open for years, but William Hill’s Lee Phelps is looking at the bigger odds to see if anyone is worth betting on for a shock. The Slams are usually the realm of the favourites in tennis, but we saw Stan Wawrinka and Marin Cilic surprise the top order last year, so could the 2015 French Open go to a player a big price? Rafael Nadal has dominated this tournament for a decade, with only Roger Federer winning the title in the last decade. In fact only two men outside the top four seeds have contested the final. Robin Soderling twice and in 2005…
  • French Open Men’s Draw Preview – Novak Djokovic Looks To Claim First Title

    24 May 2015 | 4:37 am
    by Andrew Eichenholz Novak Djokovic is playing the best tennis of anybody on the men’s tour, no ifs, ands or buts about it. However, as the Serbian star looks to grab his first French Open title, he faces stiff competition and an even tougher draw. If he will lift his first Coupe des Mousquetaires after all the dust settles, he will have denied Rafael Nadal, who seeks his tenth French Open championship, Andy Murray, who pushed Djokovic to his limit in Australia and Roger Federer, who is a 17-time Grand Slam champion. The big debate heading into the draw ceremony on Friday was whether or not…

    by Michael Lemort After his success in Rome and Monte-Carlo a month ago, two of the three clay-court Masters 1000 of the season, Novak Djokovic has confirmed that he was the favorite for the French Open coming up next week and that he was invincible in the big events since last fall. He started the 2015 season with a success at the Australian Open, first major of the year, against Andy Murray. It was his fifth crown in Melbourne and his eighth victory in a Grand Slam tournament. Then he won back to back Indian Wells and Miami, the first two Masters 1000 of the season (achieving the double for…

    With Wimbledon 2015 just around the corner, all eyes are on the form of the world’s top tennis players. Britain, in particular, will be watching the progress of 2013 Wimbledon champion Andy Murray. A number of near misses—and the tantalising promise of things to come, when he won gold at the London 2012 Olympic Games—led to his 2013 performance where the Scot became the first British player to win the men’s singles championship at Wimbledon for 77 years. Those lucky enough to have secured Centre Court tickets for the Wimbledon Men’s Final 2015 will be hoping for a repeat…

Among those who booked spots in the French Open were Nick Kyrgios, Thanasi Kokkinakis, Borna Coric, and Jack Sock.   Kyrgios did not even have to take the court in order to reach the last 32, as opponent Kyle Edmund withdrew a day earlier because of injury. With Kyrgios off the schedule, fellow Australians Kokkinakis and Bernard Tomic more than made up for the absence of the Kyrgios-Edmund match.   Moved…

    Andrew 1. Mladenovic loves the home crowd Kristina Mladenovic is better known for her grand slam winning doubles play than her singles game, but she has a great opportunity to go as far as the quarter-finals at home in Paris courtesy of a section of the draw that has lost all of its seeds. While it was Mladenovic herself who downed Bouchard [6] in R1, the rest of the seeds feel today in R2 as K.Pliskova [12] fell to Mitu, Kuznetsova [18] fell to Schiavone (more on that later), and Diyas [32] fell to Van Uytvanck.

That came courtesy of a Round 3 win over Simona Halep, who was runner up at Roland Garros earlier in the year. Well, Lucic-Baroni is back and yet again she’s put an end to Halep’s slam campaign with a straight sets win over the world no.3.

After the glorious heights of 2014, the Canadian has not been able to replicate her form at all and is in worrying shape ahead of her crucial grass season. As many of us expected, she was not able to come through her first round match today against home hope Kristina Mladenovic, who is admittedly in very good form lately.

    Andrew 1. Monday is a better day for French women. After the losses of Garcia and Dodin yesterday, I approached my viewing of the home favourites with some trepidation. Alize Cornet was playing against surprise nemesis Roberta Vinci – before the match, Vinci led their head-to-head 4-0. As the match opened things looked a little worrying for Cornet, as she dropped to 2-5 quickly. She did manage to salvage a few games before Vinci took it 6-4, but by then Cornet had found some more rhythm. From there she never really looked back, and a tired Vinci struggled to keep her legs running. There…

Swiss efficiency, security inefficiency Stanislas Wawrinka and Roger Federer were both in action today, their matches taking place at the same time on the main show courts of Roland Garros. Federer faced Alejandro Falla of Colombia, a player who had threatened him before during a very close match at Wimbledon. The threat was not to be today – the Swiss no.1 and world no.2 looked in fine form, firing down his serves and striking his forehand beautifully. The real drama came after the match, when a fan ran onto the court to try and take a selfie with Federer, completely ignored…

    It may have been developed for the Navy SEALs, but you don’t have to be in secret-weapon shape to work out with TRX. The concept of the TRX suspension training is pretty basic: you use two cables on your feet or hands to partially suspend your body and use your own body weight as resistance. The muscle groups you work as well as how hard you work them all depend on the positioning of your body on the cables.

    Vitamins are essential for the body to function properly, and for us tennis players, the B-vitamins are especially important. They are “micronutrients” which help convert proteins and carbs into the energy we need on the court. They also aid in repairing damaged muscles and building muscle mass. Excellent food sources for your B’s: This being said, players who eat poorly, who regularly restrict calories or limit certain food groups like meat or dairy (vegetarians and vegans), or who are on any one of the popular low-carb diets are probably not meeting their B-vitamin needs,…

But I still face numbers everyday--especially in business.

Because this is true, I do what I can away from the court to make the time I spend on the court as productive as possible.
