Tennis down under

Following the emotion and excitement of November’s newly formatted Davis Cup, won so impressively by hosts Spain, the inaugural ATP Cup, held across Australia, proved equally thrilling, with Serbia, headed by Novak Djokovic, defeating Rafa Nadal’s Spain in the final in what is effectively the lead up to next week’s Australian Open. Meanwhile, across the […]

New look Davis Cup Finals kick off in Madrid

The inaugural Davis Cup Finals tournament is currently taking place week in Madrid. The eighteen team event is the brainchild of Barcelona footballer, Gerard Pique, with the new abridged format comprising round-robin group matches of two singles and a doubles, followed by a knockout phase.  Great Britain, having successfully negotiated their way to the last […]

Round up from Melbourne

Following Sir Andy Murray’s gutsy but gruelling five set defeat in Melbourne to Roberto Bautista Agut, during which his painful immobility was clear for all to see, and despite his subsequent but hopefully premature “retirement” announcement by the Australian Open organisers as they cynically tried in vain to make him cry, he is yet to […]

US Open the excitement is over

After a fortnight of action and excitement, this year’s US Open has provided us with more than its fair share of headlines, and not all for the right reasons.

At least the “will he, won’t he” has been answered, and Murray […]

Murray at Eastbourne

Having taken his first tentative steps back on the tennis court in nearly a year, Sir Andy Murray’s potentially difficult first round match at Eastbourne’s Nature Valley International turned into something of a stroll, as he dispatched Stan Wawrinka in straight sets. Unlikely as it may sound, the two multiple grand slam winners are currently […]

Murray at Queen’s

Well, Sir Andy Murray made it to Baron’s Court and the Fever Tree Championships at Queen’s Club, where he was faced in the 1st round by the maverick from Australia that is Nick Kyrgios, who had never defeated Murray in five previous meetings. Kyrgios was his usual unpredictable mixture of arrogance, elegance and brilliance, at […]
