The French Open is up and about and can you guess who are going to play at the French Open? Who else but the astonishing Williams sisters – Serena and Venus and they will be partners for the fourth time at Roland Garros. A lot are asking if they are twins, FYI, they aren’t!

They both received wild card that’s why they are in this much awaited tournament. As per records, the sisters already won thirteen grand slams from the doubles.  If you can remember, they defeated Hingis and Kournikova last 1999 which opens the door to success. Then last January, they did not have the chance to get the victory over Errani and Vinci.  However, they both participate exceptionally as well as present a marvelous trick at all times that’s why they do not give up regardless of of losing on their last matches.

A total of 14 doubles teams will feed your eyes with remarkable strokes and serves on the upcoming amazing game as they were all awarded wild cards for the French Open. Let’s wait and see if the sisters will prevail particularly Venus as she is much skilled. We wish them good luck!

Everyone is talking about the most dramatic final this year!!!It is the Murray – Ferrer match and after winning in the year 2009, at last Murray go up to number 2 ranking as he defeated Ferrer 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 in the Sony Open. We all waited for this moment except for some of you had problems watching the first 20 minutes at CBS…

The match lasted for two hours and forty-five minutes with an overall of 15 breaks of serve. Ferrer thought it was his day but nah~ Murray didn’t let it to happen! Second set came but Ferrer had a hard time to play well simultaneously as everybody believes that he also needs to present extra constructive shots if he really wants to be the victor.

In contrast, the humble Murray quoted “If I’d served better I could have made it easier and that’s something I need to do better in the clay court season,” Just so you know Murray is the seventh competitor who won numerous titles in Miami and still pushy to be the most excellent player. Will he be in rank 1 next time? What can you say about this?

Both drained and in fierce conditions during the last set, they still gave what the audience wanted. You may say, it will not be effortless for Murray to win if Federer and Nadal did not pass over the tournament hence I am sure fans of the two marvelous players are all happy win or lose.

 


The Remarkable Moment of Sharapova

March 20, 2013

It was undeniably a thrilling day for Maria Sharapova as she won the Indian Wells title. What happened to Wozniacki? She played sound but it was not her day I reckon. The Russian girl showed various outstanding hits and techniques in playing Tennis even if she went through a vast pressure over Caroline Wozniacki. Furthermore we all noticed that she improved a lot since 2006 and we all expect that :)

It is without doubt a breath-taking match at the BNP Paribas Open Tennis Tournament and she made Wozniacki run from side to side during the one hour and twenty minutes play. She truly believes that if you really work hard for something it will be paid off. Thanks to her coach – Robert Lansdorp without his help Sharapova will not make it to the top. Sharapova quoted “I went through different types of coaches but Robert helps out physically and mentally as well as he put my game in place” unquoted.

So if you are an aspiring player and loves Tennis so much, do not lose hope practice a lot and make her as one of your inspiration because you will never know sooner or later you will be a PRO like her.

Serena Williams did it again against Petra Kvitova 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 in their last tournament.

Rafael Nadal’s tennis techniques

June 1, 2011

Being stuck at a certain skill level is due to bad playing habits, mistakes and inefficient strategy. Determining the maximum hitting zone, serving technique and practicing the back scratch are just the basic serve techniques that can help you get started. The right techniques and consistent practice will eventually build a great serve.

Many players build great technique to become the greatest talents to grace the tennis sport. Their grace and skills are admired by many. Rafael Nadal, a 24 year old Spaniard, who won his ninth Grand Slam singles title at theUSopen, is the youngest tennis player to capture a career Grand slam. He’s also a five time champion of the French open. He ranked number 1 by the Associations of Tennis Professionals and his success on clay earned him the name “King of Clay”. He had a 32 match winning streak in 2008 starting at the 2008 Masters Series Hamburg, the French Open, the Queen’s club, his first ever title at Wimbledon, and Rogers Cup. He also won seven tournaments in a row at the ATP level.

But what are Nadal’s real secret techniques that made him climb to the top? He plays aggressively behind the base line with heavy top spin ground strokes. He is consistent, fast, and has great court coverage. His mental toughness and tactical approach are additional advantages to his strength. All of these abilities make him an outstanding tennis athlete.

With Rafael Nadal winning titles, it is quite tempting to try to emulate his technique, and strokes. Use the right equipment and keep your eyes on ball. Concentrate and you’re your confidence level high as you keep the right grip on your racket and utilizing proper foot work. “Wrong footwork, bad hand grip as well as incompetent strokes will affect the quality of the game and could hurt your back as well”, Rafael Nadal once advised.

Make sure you have control over your emotions and do not lose your temper on the court. Temper makes you lose focus. This is one of the best techniques applied by Rafael Nadal.

May 30, 2011

Are you one of those tennis enthusiasts out there? If so, then maybe you are just as keen at looking after your tennis racket as it also, somehow, proves that having a strong tennis racket also contributes to enhanced tennis performance.

If you are a serious tennis player, having a strong and durable tennis racket is really important. Do you also know that a tennis racket can come with a high price tag? It’s a pleasure to tell you that the world’s most expensive racket is called the “tennis gold racket” weighing 8.8 pounds and has been studded with 1,700 diamonds. It is conceived that this racket is an award for anyone who can win the tournament many times in several years.

The racket tale started at the Diamond Games tournament in Antwerp, Belgium where Amelei Mauresmo defeated Kim Clijsters. She had won the tournament and got the trophy three times in for five years. Mauresmo’s idiosyncratic trophies have been impressive as much of her play tournament with the addition of diamond tennis racket.

Her racket is the world’s most expensive tennis racket with a record setting value of $1,300,000.00 U.S Dollars. Weighing 8.8 pounds and studded with 1,700 diamonds, it is not a wonder why this racket had become the world’s most expensive racket to date. Most Chinese perceive that this has been Amelei Mauresmo’s lucky charm or winning material.

According to studies, the racket was first seen in a Ryan jewelry company and has become a treasure of Antwerp HRD Diamond museum –“ZuanheBei Antwerp award in the tennis championship. Chongqing is the world’s most authoritative diamond accrediting agency jointly sponsored by China and third at the Beijing Shanghai exhibition where the world’s most expensive tennis racket was shipped by professional tennis Guard Company. The golden racket was first displayed at Chongqing .

If Venus Williams, a tennis player entered the Proximus Diamonds Games in 2006, she could have had the chance to play tennis using the golden racket, but she withdrew two days before the tournament.

Perhaps, the golden racket is meant for Amelei Mauresmo and she’s destined to win using this expensive tennis racket.

Strange Places to Play Tennis

May 10, 2011

Even renowned tennis professional players have ridiculous experiences. You may even chuckle to find out that Roger Federer of Switzerland has an eccentric enthrallment playing tennis in odd places.

Just imagine how Roger Federer and Andre Agassi of USA played tennis 692 feet above the ground.

That was exactly what happened one afternoon during their stay in Buri Al Arab Hotel in Dubai on February 22, 2005 when they were in preparation for the first Dubai Duty Free Men’s Open. The 321 meters high luxury hotel that stands on a man-made island became historical when the two players enjoyed their unique experience playing tennis on the Helipad.

The 4,467 square-foot Helipad turned into a grass tennis court for the two players when they made their “unusual warm up”. According to Federer, it was an absolutely spectacular treat to play on top of the luxury hotel overlooking Dubai.

Federer also played on the water front of The Elbe River in Central Europe with Tommy Haas in a floating court.

Playing tennis on a court that was definitely moving, Federer said that a game with Tommy was a lot of fun. With the waves and cool breeze, they had to be quicker to get good rallies against the stirring surface. In front of 15,000 people watching the game from the harbor, the two players played a match during a Hamburg Harbour anniversary.
