The end is nigh for Murray’s Grand Slam quest

Murray in top form after Olympic success

Andy Murray is believed by many to be the ultimate sporting misfortune in British sporting history. Despite taking Gold in his home Olympics at Wimbledon this summer to mark his greatest personal accolade, the Scot remains in search for his maiden Grand Slam title.

In an era containing the greats of Nadal, Djockovic, Roddick and of course the best player in history Roger Federer, Murray has the right to question whether his career would have been a little more decorated  had been either side of this generation.… Read More…

Andy has dispatched Davydenko, Karlovic and most recently Bagdhatis on his way to the fourth round and faces up against Maric Cilic tomorrow afternoon on Centre Court.

Murray needs to improve

Murray will need to perform better than he did against Bagdhatis if he is to progress against Cilic and keep the British public’s hopes alive for this year at least.… Read More…

My Days at Wimbledon so far….

A view from Up Top of the Wimbledon Grounds

I have been going to Wimbledon for the past fourteen years. Whether it be free tickets, LTA funded player’s passes or queueing up in the mornings; there is nothing more special than the All England Club in SW19.

However, on Sunday I went up to the championships to see an old coach of mine. He recruited me to Mississippi State University and has been a great friend ever since he left a year later.… Read More…

Murray open Wimbledon against dodgy Daydenko

It was announced today that Andy Murray will play Nikolay Davydenko in the first round of Wimbledon.

The Friday before Wimbledon always brings about the draw being done. As only one of few tournaments still on tour that does this by hand, the suspense is incredible. Andy Murray was drawn against the Russian, Nikolay Davydenko.

The Big 4 see a little Danger in Draw

Murray’s match-up against the World No. #47 should be a nice encounter. We have seen the Brit struggle on the grass which included a couple of exhibition losses this week at The Boodles in Stoke.… Read More…

Wimbledon 2012: Contenders Falling Hard!

Murray loses to Mahut and leaves little belief that he'll win Wimbledon this year!

With Wimbledon a little over a week away and this week having been a complete disaster for many of the contenders, there seems to be no better time to get a good price on a top player.

This week saw the Queens Club Tournament in London and the German version, Halle, introduce the ATP Tour to the grass court season. What we have witnessed has been beyond what we expected.… Read More…

The clay season has drawn to a close (nearly!) and that can only mean one thing. It’s time for the world’s best to take to the turf once again and warm-up for Wimbledon at the Aegon championships, Queen’s club.

The dawn of the grass season also sees the start of Britain’s ritual expectancy of Andy Murray to finally bring home the men’s Wimbledon title after 76 years of hurt.… Read More…

Nadal overwhelming Fav in French Open Final

Nadal has had the better of Djokovic this clay court season but be careful not underestimate Djokovic as he continues to improve and really wants the Grand Slam that has eluded him.

Anything who has been watching the French Open will undoubtedly agree that Nadal is playing the better tennis. He has blown by all his opponents without dropping a set which included dismissing Murray’s conqueror in just one hour and forty six minutes.

Number 1 seed, Novak Djokovic, has had a completely different route to the final. The World No. #1 has twice almost been defeated which included saving a lot of match points against Tsonga in the quarter-final.… Read More…

Shaky Serb leaves Rafa the Gaffer?

Rafael Nadal seems to be getting better and better on the clay, scary!

This year’s French Open has duly delivered some great matches already. With a few special performances and some incredible “grinding,” it is great to see some of the contenders play. What has also been useful has been to see which seeds are definitely not comfortable with the conditions.

Betting on a top seed to lose is worth a fortune for you accumulators while knowing who to back or lay against can save you a fortune on the markets.… Read More…

Nadal favourite to win 7th French Open title

Nadal lifts the French Open title

Rafa Nadal is gunning to break Bjorn Borg’s record 6 titles and become the undisputed all-time ‘king of clay’ at the French Open next week.

Rafa could rewrite history at Roland Garros

He is preparing nicely to take the crown on the more familiar red clay of the Rome Masters this week, compared to his relatively poor outing on the highly controversial blue clay of the Madrid Masters last week.… Read More…
