The Match of Djokovic-Haas that shocked the world

Tommy Haas


Who doesn’t know this incredible tennis player who is also an ex-schoolmate of Arnold Schwarzenegger that gave a jaw-dropping match last Tuesday in opposition to Novak. Who would have thought that he can conquer our rank #1 player after so many years? The ball is beyond doubt round as if you could remember, Tommy Haas was ranked #2 way back 2002. It is indeed true that once a winner, always a winner furthermore he did not let down his fans with 6-2, 6-4 score. if truth be told, age does not matter when it comes to playing Tennis!  Maybe it is to some players but not with Haas we all observed that he played just like those times when he was on top of triumph in the world of Tennis.

Everyone was surprised when they saw Djokovic performed awfully in which the no.1 player admitted so. Moreover he even said that “it is the worst match he ever played in a long time”. Truly he did well on this match and serves up perfectly and for sure the fans are all thrilled and will definitely don’t let pass the quarterfinals.

All about Andy Murray’s Techniques to Sony Open Victory


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

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.

Rafael Nadal’s tennis techniques

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.

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.
