Top seed Williams Safely through at Wimbledon

Serena-Williams--009

LONDON –   Top seed Serena Williams completed her impeccable first-round record and took another step towards the Grand Slam with a convincing triumph at Wimbledon having a 6-4, 6-1 scores against the world number 113 Russian qualifier Margarita Gasparyan. The first round was not stress-free as Gasparyan broke serve in the opening game and led with 3-1 scores. While crowd’s favorite 33 year old Serena Williams finally discovered Margarita’s rhythm she did not give Gasparyan another chance.

“I knew she would be a good player – I can’t say I thought she’d be that good, to be honest,” Williams said. “Obviously when you’re winning three matches in qualifying you’re ready to go the distance, and playing me she had nothing to lose. She played really good. Serena Williams also thought that she is losing again as Margarita came out so fast but Williams did not let it to happen. This is Serena Williams’ 17th first-round singles win at Wimbledon, with her no losses record at this stage.

Serena is now eyeing on winning all four majors Grand Slam in the same year. She already got the US Open, the Australian Open and French Open. The big question today is will she be getting the Wimbledon victory?

How to add home courts on your Tennis Round profile.

Where do you play tennis? Know the difference between Home courts and Location.

Your home courts are where other players can find you, and basically the grounds where you play.

The location you enter on your profile is unique and defines the area where you play. When you’re traveling or if you move to another city and want to play tennis there, you don’t have to close your account. You can simply update your location.

Below are step-by-step guides on adding or removing home courts and updating your location.


Add or Remove Home Courts

If you haven’t added home courts on your profile yet, Login then click Add a home court.

Enter your city or zip code on the search bar and click Find Courts. You can also filter your search by choosing options under AccessIn/Outdoor, and Lighted.

If you’ve found your home court on the search results, click the Select as home court button to add it. You can add up to five home courts on your profile.

If you’ve mistakenly added a facility as your home court or if you no longer play in that court, you can easily remove it by clicking on the trash can icon beside the “Your home court” status. 

Another way to remove a court is by going to your profile and clicking on the trash can icon​ to remove that listing as your home court.

Where do you play tennis now? Do we have your current playing location? 

We’ve received a number calls from Tennis Round members, asking why they keep getting messages from out of town players. Turns out they forgot to update their location when they moved, so we keep matching them with players from their previous city.

So, just a reminder folks – if you move, or if you travel, go to your profile and update your location so you start showing up in the players search results for that place. 

Also, you don’t have to close your account when you move. That is why we built this site! So we could play anywhere. Say if you moved from Boston to Chicago, for example, you could just update your location and keep playing. 

Update your location in 3 easy steps.

1. Login to your profile and click the green Edit my profile drop-down. Click the Edit your details link.

_83700565_federer_getty

The man of Tennis and the 17 times Grand Slam winner, Roger Federer had a victory on Wednesday and overpowered the twenty six year old Latvian Ernests Gulbis with marvelous scores of 6-3, 7-5 in sixty five minutes. It was a piece of cake for Federer who is preparing for Wimbledon’s Grass courts to beat Gulbis by means of holding serve to bag the first set. It was a heart-stopping exchanges in the second set before Federer surprised Gulbis double faulting at 5-5. After surviving a match with Philipp Kohlschreiber, Roger Federer did it again effortlessly compared to the pressured Gulbis who attempted many times but still failed to win. He needs to be more focus and smart with his own strategies like the rest of the tennis players so that their fans will be overwhelmed with their upcoming matches.

The 33-year-old will now meet German Florian Mayer who won against Steve Johnson with 6-3, 7-6 (7-4). While on Thursday, Kei Nishikori of Japan will face German Dustin Brown, a second round match with Czech the third seed Tomas Berdych who defeated Borna Coric in a breathtaking straight sets and Ivo Karlovic with scores 6-7(5) 6-3 6-3 win contrary to German Alexander Zverev.

The World’s number One Serena Williams produced another ruthless performance on Wednesday to reach the French Open semifinals at Roland Garros with a 6-1, 6-3 winning scores in a span of sixty five minutes contrary to Sara Errani. The aggressive Errani struggled on the first part and fought in her very best approach but then she had a troubled 15-0 scores. There were Ooohh’s and Ahhh’s from the best crowd while a forehand pass takes Serena to 15-30 scores. The thirty three year old American crowd’s favorite Serena Williams, finished off a definite victory on her fourth match point and just proved that she is too dominant for her Italian challenger. Errani did her best but it is still not enough for Williams’ clever approaches.

“It was very important for me to take a very good start,” said Williams, speaking in French during her on-court interview. “The last four French Opens in a row she’s been to the quarterfinals or better, so I knew I had to play very well today.”

Serena Williams is targeting her third title at Roland Garros, will then compete versus the twenty third seed and Switzerland’s favorite Timea Bacsinszky who won against Alison Van Uytvanck of Belgium with 6-4, 7-5 incredible scores.
