The first Grand Slam of the season may only have just finished, but the tennis season waits for no one and this week is the turn of the Davis Cup to take centre stage on the men’s tour. I’ve already posted my ante post preview, but here’s my rundown on this weekend’s eight World Group first round ties. Changes have been afoot in the Davis Cup for some time, but whilst …

Jan 28th, 2018 at 20:52 undertherobe on Tennis 0 comments 340 views

The Davis Cup may have its detractors, but it’s an institution within the men’s game, and has been going since 1900. The United States currently hold the record with 32 wins, although only once (2007) have they lifted the trophy in the last 20 years. Australia are in second place with 28 victories, although their last win came back in 2003. The major problem with making ante post bets on the …

It only seems like yesterday that Grigor Dimitrov was becoming the first ATP Tour Finals debutant to win the end of season finals in 19 years. Despite attempts to lighten the load on the big players, they dropped like flies in the second half of 2017 and the Australian Open participation of Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic is still in doubt. But Australian Open talk is for another day, and …

We're at the end of another long tennis season and one that has taken its toll on some of the top players. Incredibly, only Marin Cilic and Dominic Thiem from the 2016 season ending top eight are in London this year. Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka and Kei Nishikori amongst a host of players who ended their 2017 campaign early through injury. But we are where we are, and there …

2017 is flying by and we're just a few weeks away from the final Grand Slam of the year at Flushing Meadow in New York.

2017 Roland Garros started a few days ago and it has been very interesting so far, despite the fact that we aren't going to see many top players (Serena Williams - pregnancy, Maria Sharapova - didn't recieve wild card, Vika Azarenka - pregnancy). It has already been full of surprises - the biggest surprise was the first round loss of number one Angelique Kerber (first time first round exit of …

7 Grand Slam Tennis Tips For Players To Succeed Serena Williams

May 1st, 2017 at 14:16 Diesel20 on Tennis 0 comments 509 views

Serena Williams announced her pregnancy around a week ago and this means this could be a great chance for other players to rise to number one (especially considering Kerber's weak form at the moment and this season). At the moment, women's tennis isn't at the highest level - Serena is pregnant, Vika Azarenka is probably going to return somewhere around US Open, so almost half year from now and it's …

USA - Czech Republic (Fed Cup)

Apr 22nd, 2017 at 00:44 Diesel20 on Tennis 0 comments 305 views

With Fed Cup starting today, I decided to make a short preview of the semifinal match between USA and Czech Republic. There were only three different winners since 2004 (Russia, Italy and Czech Republic), but it seems very likely that we are going to see some other team win this year, considering Russia and Italy are already out of the competition and Czech Republic won't play with their strongest team in …
