Britain poised for USA challenge

Britain poised for USA challenge

This weekend’s mouth-watering tie on the clay of San Diego is sure to be an interesting watch. The USA, giants of the sport but no longer among the top dogs, entertain Great Britain, back in the Davis Cup World Group.

The Business End of the Australian Open

The Business End of the Australian Open

We’re now well into the final week of the Australian Open, and we’re down to the last four, incidentally with only one from the ATP top four ranked players – Rafael Nadal. It is very unusual for one in particular, Novak Djokovic to be absent from the final, not to mention the semi-finals, as over … Continue reading

#AusOpen: Heat, Murray, Fedberg & More

After four days of action, I discuss the main talking points of the 2014 Australian Open. Heat Temperatures have soared into the mid 40s. Fortunately, they’re on their way down. I wouldn’t mind a fraction of those temperatures in the rainy UK. I’m always in awe of the unbelievable fitness levels of players but I … Continue reading

The Big Australian Open Preview

The Big Australian Open Preview

Another year and another Grand Slam from Andy Murray. A habit? Yes please! The Brit provided us with an historic moment to cherish at Wimbledon this year.

Classic Match of the Week

Classic Match of the Week

Every so often we are treated to matches of the highest order. This firmly fits into that. There are matches where neither player deserves to lose. I can safely say that this accords with that. In this case, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray, both vying for their first Tour Finals title, battled out an extraordinary … Continue reading

Classic Match of the Week

Andy Murray received his OBE yesterday. Today he has a further honour; featuring in TPFTennis’s Classic Match of the Week! Instead of picking the fantastic Wimbledon final of this year (which will no doubt be featured at a later date), I have decided to pick his quarter-final victory over Fernando Verdasco. Perhaps more overshadowed by … Continue reading
