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).

7 Grand Slam Tennis Tips For Players To Succeed Serena Williams

May 1st, 2017 at 14:16 Diesel20 on Tennis 0 comments 390 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 216 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 …

When it comes to betting on the Masters events in recent years, there hasn’t been too far to look with 71 of the 81 titles since the start of 2008 being won by one of Novak Djokovic (28 wins), Rafael Nadal (19 wins), Andy Murray (14 wins) or Roger Federer (10 wins). Whilst Nadal and Federer could be perhaps considered in the twilight of their careers, it shouldn’t be lost on …

However, there are some very interesting players to watch …
