June 29, 2014

The marvelous Andy Murray winning styles strikes back again in Wimbledon. The champion advanced to quarterfinals by winning against Kevin Anderson with 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (6) score. Murray needs one more round to meet and play against Novak Djokovic. He said all the matches are tough and everyone in the quarterfinals are playing top tennis. Andy needs to focus and gives his 200% for his challengers to get tense and have a hard time to take home the victory.

“Some days you get lucky with that,” Murray said. “Some days you don’t. You pretty much guess a lot of the time. Sometimes you go the wrong way and sometimes you go the right way, and thankfully today I picked a few good ones.”

This is the seventh time that Murray overcame the gentle giant’s serve and tactics to get to the Wimbledon quarter-finals.  Anderson wins the game as Murray hits a backhand longer while the Scot dare the call but it was only a waste of time.Indeed Murray is a very tough player and the opponent failed to win over him even if he did his best too.

The rain is teeming down outside and  Andy Murray’s fans were under umbrella while watching their hero win. They did not leave him  even if it rained and supported Murray all the way.

June 25, 2014

Maria Sharapova

French Open champion Maria Sharapova clears her status and tell the world why  she is in 242 world rank with 6-1, 6-0 on her fist encounter with wildcard Samantha Murray. This is a bonus and indeed a great triumph on Maria Sharapova’s striking resume. The World Wide Web says it is a DAVID VS. GOLIATH matches. Maria Sharapova is too physically powerful that in just fifty eight minutes she had the victory in her hands.

The underdog mentioned in her interview; “I’m really pleased to be given a wildcard again as it’s such an amazing tournament to be involved in,” said Murray, 26. “I had my first practice session on Tuesday and it just feels so good to be there and walk around the place again. “I’m still getting used to everything that goes on at Wimbledon.

“When I first heard the draw I was a bit shocked,” Samantha admitted. “I just see it as great opportunity to play someone of her calibre. I’ll be on a big court as well so it’s just a dream. Samantha Murray also mentioned that it is a privileged for her to play with Sharapova and it’s not the biggest match of her life.

But of course Maria Sharapova did not fail her followers so she played merciless and take home the ace!


Serena Williams and Venus Loses

Seems like it is not their lucky day on this particular afternoon and fate is going away while Williams was beaten with 6-2, 6-2 score competing with Garbine Muguruza of Spain. They expected too much but even if they tried their very hard in the battle “nothing really worked” said Williams. Who would have thought that they will exit very early? Usually they find a way to turn everything on their side however this time they are just human being. For sure their fans are dismayed and all shocked because this is not so Williams! This is the first time that the top two seeded females have defeated prior to third round of a Grand Slam.

Serena owns 17 titles whereas Muguruza is only playing in her 13th slam match. On top of that Serena got 54-2 for three seasons while Garbine Muguruza got 1-1 only at the French Open. Actually the twenty year old Muguruza idolizes Serena and she stated that she once dreamt of playing against Serena Williams and finally that came true and she was very proud of herself and thought that she did great on their match.

Serena said Garbine Muguruza played smart and I can’t figure out how to get going and serve. At the end of the day, lives goes on and just think that every day is not Christmas so better luck next time Williams.

World No. 2 and the man of tennis, Novak Djokovic won over Rafael Nadal with 4-6, 6-3, 6-3, as they met for the 41st time in the final of the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in two hours and 19 minutes. Rafael Nadal recovered his score through closing, did the best and tried to take home the victory but luck was not for him as Djokovic rules the match. It is the first time for Rafael Nadal since 2004 has lost more than two matches on clay.

Djokovic proved that he is stronger and unbeatable. Djokovic said in an interview “It’s a special moment to win this tournament. “I want to thank my team who are always close to me and give me tons of support throughout my career. None of this would be possible without them. “I’ve really appreciated the chance to play here over the years and this final was an incredible challenge. I hope to return next year, see you again.” This is indeed a start of luck and positive views after the depressing news where thirty five were dead in the severe flooding in their country.

Twenty seven year old Russian and sixth seed Maria Sharapova improve her record in Stuttgart to 13-0 as she defeated former number one, Ana Ivanovic with a 3-6, 6-4, and 6-1. This is her third consecutive Porsche Grand Prix tennis title. During first half of the game Sharapova thought it’s not her day but as the game goes on, she made a way to turn luck on her. If truth be told, Maria said she had a hard time reading Ana’s mind and her game tactics but in the end, she was able to lost Ivanovic’s focus and accomplished the game.

She said after her shoulder injury she finally found herself and she is back on track with her comeback which made her fans blissful. With different experiences throughout her career, she is proud that she is getting better, exerted efforts and making every tournament special by using different techniques.

Luckily, this is Sharapova’s first victory of the year, thirtieth title of her career and will remain undefeated in Stuttgart. Maria Sharapova is unquestionably happy with her win and she is so glad that she’s able to do that in Germany. It may be a tough year for her but fortunately blessing is coming to her and endlessly pouring. Congratulations Maria!
