After a Stop in New York, Federer is Ready for Indian Wells 

A night flight from Dubai to New York has put Roger Federer in place to continue his impressive run of form after wining another title in Dubai, his fifth trophy from his last seven ATP events dating to Basel last November.

"There is no substitute to confidence, I've played great," said Federer. "It's not just that I've taken my chances.  I really thought I played a good tournament here. That gives me hope that I can carry it over to Indian Wells and Miami."

 

With a New Team, Jankovic is Ready to Return to the Top of the Womenís Tour

Four years after tasting a world No. 1 ranking, Jelena Jankovic is determined to try and regain those heights as the Serb re-boots her tennis by bringing in a new coach and trainer.

The current 14th-ranked player on the WTA has not enjoyed her slide down the table, with not even a Top ten standing to console her. Jankovic owns 12 titles but lifted her last two years ago in Indian Wells where the 27-year-old is making a return this week after reaching the weekend in Kuala Lumpur.

 

After a Loss, Djokovic Prepares to Resume Winning

His unbeaten streak this season has been stopped at ten, but Novak Djokovic remains optimistic for the rest of his season after losing a semi-final at the Dubai Championships to Andy Murray.

"It's just the start of the season. There are two Masters 1000 events coming up which are really important, and I need to get ready."

 

Spring Tennis Begins Today in North America, So Get Ready

With the beginning of the North American swing on the professional tour in North America today attention is likely going to being placed on American players both past and present. It is only natural then to look around and see what is happening. One person who has looked around and come up with the question, If Iím Only 22, How come Iím 82?

By coincidence, that is the title of a book written by Vic Braden, likely Americaís most overlooked and unrecognized tennis coach and tennis thinker. He also happens to be a  very funny man.
