Wimbledon – Week 1.

Posted by QB on June 28, 2008

Wimbledon week one is the one full of surprise upsets which I have never witness before on grass court tournament. Novak Djokovic was defeated by Mart Safin than Andy Roddick lost to Tipservic. Andy Roddick has very good record on grass court tournaments and was hoping to see play interesting match with Federer but he lost in early round. Andy Roddick Queens four time champion when lost to Nadal was not that surprising because he make comeback after suffer shoulder injury in Rome. Roddick said that he chocked on big points was the main reason for losing the match make more sense but he has to overcome all his fears for North America hart courts season and US Open.

Federer chances are better than ever to write history by winning sixth consecutive Wimbledon Championship. He is playing very well this what I can say by looking at the scores, as I did not get a chance to watch any Wimbledon matches. Federer will face Layton Hewitt in fourth round which will not be that easy because Hewitt fight till the last point. Federer will win at the end.

There were upsets on women side too, Maria Sharapova early exit, Ana Ivanovic lost to 133 ranked Chinese player. Watching French open women matches and now in Wimbledon start missing Justine Henin more because I believe she would have won one more French Open and her first Wimbledon Championship which is wide open. Justine Henin was the most talented tough tennis player on women side has to reconsider her retirement decision immediately instead of doing it few years latter like Martina Hingis, she has many more of tennis left in her.

Today will the first time will watch Wimbledon and add some more thoughts.

Wimbledon – Huge Upset.

Posted by QB on June 26, 2008

Wimbledon started and it was the first time look at the results on website this evening and find out that Marat Safin defeated Novak Djokovic who was one the the favorite to win title. This is really great news for me that now Roger Federer has one less opponent who has the game and nerve who can defeat him. Roger Federer win his match easily in straight sets.

Watch tennis on Saturday maybe by than someone would might create another upset by defeating Rafael Nadal.

Tennis – Pre Wimbledon Tournaments Started.

Posted by QB on June 9, 2008

The Queens grass court tournament has started and it is good to see Andy Roddick into men draw. Andy Roddick skip Rolland Garros because of shoulder injury is back in action. Rafael Nadal is also playing at Queens, he is the one clay court player becoming comfortable on grass which is very difficult for clay court players. Nadal and Djokovic would be the main obstacle for Roger Federer sixth straight Wimbledon  title with Andy Roddick who always had good results on grass. Roger Federer will play in Germany grass court tournament and he will not face Nadal or Djokovic as they are playing in Queens.

The final between Federer vs Nadal was big disappointment, Nadal crushing him by playing excellent tennis.

Wimbledon three weeks away.
