Despite Rome Loss,
Nadal Heads For Paris Full Of Confidence
Rafael Nadal is taking full confidence into the
weekend start of the French Open despite coming up short in the Rome
final to heated rival Novak Djokovic 4-6, 6-3, 6-3. Nadal, who suffered
a third season loss on the clay for the first time since 2004, takes an
18-3 record to Roland Garros, where he will wipe the slate clean as he
starts afresh in the quest for a ninth trophy in his personal playground
of Court Chatrier.
While Having The Rome Title, Djokovic Worries
About Floods in Serbia
Novak Djokovic has
made no secret of the fact his overwhelming tennis desire in 2014 is to
finally wrestle the French Open title from Rafael Nadal’s grip and he
claimed a massive psychological advantage in the battle by beating the
Spaniard to win the Internazionale BNL d’Italia title in Rome.
''It's been a very
emotional week for me,'' said Djokovic. “This
is a total catastrophe of biblical proportions. Half of the country is
in danger of not having any electricity, we're talking about whole
cities, not villages, that are being evacuated.
Remembering The Good
Old Days, Ivanovic Heads To Rome
Ana Ivanovic will head to the scene of her
biggest career triumph - the French Open where she won the 2008 title
and achieved the WTA No., 1 ranking - with some of the same feelings of
confidence that helped her to the top six years ago.
Young British Player
Needs A Good Coach
coaching link up between former British no.1 Greg Rusedski and the
nation’s most promising young player Kyle Edmund has failed to
materialize and now Andy Murray has urged the 19 year-old to find the
right mentor as soon as possible.
Murray Says His Back
Is Good And Bring On Paris
The match may have been a golden opportunity for
Murray to finally get a clay win over Nadal; instead he is 0-5 in that
category and trails the Spaniard 18-5 overall. "This doesn't change my
confidence too much because I felt like I have started playing better
for a couple of weeks," said last week's Madrid quarter-finalist.
From Now On, It’s “Stan” Wawrinka
It took some months but with his game now
well-known in the sport, his name was soon to follow. It seems that
Stanislas Wawrinka has officially asked the ATP to refer to him now as
"Stan," the name he was tagged with as he started to make his way up the
ranks of the ATP.
