Nole unstoppable in China

Nole unstoppable in China

Novak Djokovic beat David Ferrer 64 62 for a place in the Shanghai Rolex Masters semi-finals.

Nole is enjoying a winning streak of 29 matches on Chinese soil but next faces Roger Federer, who beat Julien Benneteau 76 60, and I must say that as a Federer lover I have to bet on him to end the Serb's winning form.

Djokovic broke Ferrer’s serve in the second game and went on to save two break points at 5-4. He won 25 of his 33 service points in the 57-minute first set.

Ferrer was broken at the start of the second set and at 2-4. The match lasted one hour and 35 minutes.

Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have already qualified to the seasons end Masters tournament where the best eighth tennis players of the year will be competing but this week they will be playing at the Shanghai Rolex Masters taking place at the Qizhong Tennis Center, which was the site of the Tennis Masters Cup from 2005-'08.

Nole wins China Open title.... Again....

Nole wins China Open title.... Again....



China it is really Nole's place to be.... Novak Djokovic won his fifth China Open title after crushing Tomas Berdych 6-0, 6-2 in the final.

Djokovic was one point away from handing Berdych a "double bagel" - a 6-0, 6-0 defeat - but the Czech player fought off match point, then broke Djokovic to win his first game. He raised both arms in celebration and smiled with relief as the crowd roared.

The Serb sealed the victory two games later to improve his sparkling record at the China Open to 24-0.

"I met somebody in the final who I've never seen before," Berdych said. "I was just swept out from the court."

Djokovic said he woke up Sunday with a good feeling, and that continued when he stepped on court and broke Berdych in the first game.

Robredo upsets Djokovic in Cincinnati Masters, Federer keeps winning

Robredo upsets Djokovic in Cincinnati Masters

Tommy Robredo beat Novak Djokovic 7-6 (6), 7-5 in the round of 16 at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.

Too bad I did not wager on tennis this time as this was only the second time Robredo defeats a top ranked player. It would have been a big gain.

Nole dropped the first set after fighting back from a 6-3 deficit in the tiebreaker but Robredo took it with an ace.

Robredo failed to convert two match points before completing the victory with a slam on Djokovic's short lob.

Djokovic wins Wimbledon after beating Federer in an epic five-set final

Djokovic wins Wimbledon after beating Federer in an epic five-set final

Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer battled it out in one of the most historic Wimbledon finals ever.

Djokovic took down Federer in a five-set final Sunday that nobody will soon forget.

The crazy thing about this Wimbledon final is it looked over early in the fourth set, when Federer found himself down a set and inn a 3-5 hole to a man who was battling injury at times, but seemed to bounce back faster and stronger with each visit from the trainer.

Djokovic was serving for the match at 5-3 in the fourth after some loose service games from Federer, but the 17-time Grand Slam winner was able to break Novak to keep himself in the match. Federer went on to win the final four games of that fourth set, and took all the momentum of the match to the deciding fifth set where Federer has seen both triumph and heartbreak.

Is Andy Murray ready to defend Wimbledon title?

Is Andy Murray ready to defend Wimbledon title?

Andy Murray became the first British to win Wimbledon in 77 years but if I have to bet I wouldn't bet on him to win the title again at the men's Wimbledon betting market.

The Scott crushed out of Roland Garros badly against Rafa Nadal and suffered an early defeat at Queen's .

“In some ways, it can be good [to have the extra time], providing I use next week properly,” he explained after his defeat. “For me, it’s probably going to get quite hectic towards the end of next week. So over the next few days it will be nice just to have a bit of peace and quiet.”

At Wimbledon Murray will have a difficult time as Roger Federer is playing at a very high level and Wimbledon is his place.

Let's have a look at some early predictions for the fantastic four going into tennis' grass season.

Rafa wins 9th French Open title

Rafa wins 9th French Open title

Trying to beat Rafael Nadal at the French Open is, without a doubt, the toughest task in tennis. Indeed, must be among the greatest challenges in all of sports.

The pressure he applies, from set to set, game to game, point to point, shot to shot. That bullwhip of a high-bouncing, topspin lefty forehand. Those quick-reflex returns that help him break an opponent's serve - and his will.

Doing what he does so well on the red clay of Roland Garros, a surface and site he dominates so completely, the No. 1-seeded Nadal wore down No. 2 Novak Djokovic 3-6, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4 in a muggy final Sunday to win his ninth French Open championship and fifth in a row, both records.

''For me,'' Nadal said, ''playing here in Roland Garros is just unforgettable, forever.''

It is also his 14th Grand Slam title overall, tying the 28-year-old Spaniard with Pete Sampras for the second most by a man, behind only Roger Federer's 17.

Djokovic looks to maintain edge over rival Nadal

Djokovic looks to maintain edge over rival Nadal

Novak Djokovic looks to continue his recent dominance over archrival Rafael Nadal at the Monte Carlo Masters and boost his confidence as he bids to win his only missing major at the French Open.

Monte Carlo is the first of three Masters tournaments played on clay and is followed by Madrid and Rome in May, leading up to the French Open, which starts May 25.

Nole narrowly lost to Nadal in a dramatic semifinal last year at Roland Garros, where a clumsy error at the net late in the fifth set curtailed the Serbian player's comeback, and then Nadal beat him in their next two meetings.

"Winning this title last year in the final against Nadal was definitely one of the highlights of my career. I really love playing in this tournament," Djokovic said Sunday. "My family comes in big numbers during this week so it makes me feel very comfortable, and at home."

Nole Djokovic wins 4th Miami Open title

Novak Djokovic beat Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-3 to claim the Miami Sony Open 2014 title.

Nadal fell to 0-4 in finals at Key Biscayne while Djokovic is a regular winner here after winning his 4th title.

Djokovic erased the only break point he faced, committed just 15 unforced errors and won a scrambling, 30-shot rally on the final point. He completed a March sweep after beating Roger Federer in the final at Indian Wells two weeks ago.

Djokovic beats Federer to win Indian Wells title

Djokovic beats Federer to win Indian Wells title

Novak Djokovic beat Roger Federer 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (3) to win the Indian Wells 2014.

Federer rallied from a break down and a 5-3 deficit in the third set to force the tiebreaker Sunday, but he made a slew of mistakes to lose the 33rd meeting between the two rivals.

Federer still leads the series 17-16, having beaten Djokovic in three sets in the semifinals at Dubai two weeks ago. Djokovic will remain No. 2 in the world, while Federer will rise three spots to No. 5 on Monday in the ATP Tour rankings.

Nole earned $1 million while Federer collected $500,000.

Flavia Pennetta routed injured Agnieszka Radwanska 6-2, 6-1 to win the women's title.

Djokovic upset by Wawrinka in Australian Open quarterfinals

Djokovic upset by Wawrinka in Australian Open quarterfinals

Novak loss to Stanislas Wawrinka 2-6, 6-4, 6-2, 3-6, 9-7 in the quarterfinals of the 2014 Australian Open.

Djokovic held off Wawrinka 12-10 in the fifth set in a 5-hour, 2-minute fourth-rounder that finished at 1:41 a.m. here last year.

This time, it was Wawrinka's turn.

"Last year I finished it was really tough but this year I came back it was a new year," he said. "I tried everything. He's an amazing champion. He never gives up. I'm really, really ... really happy."

This one took exactly four hours and featured some stunning rallies, with both players openly showing amazement at some of the shots coming back from the other side. And just to add to the drama, there was a five-minute rain delay with Wawrinka serving at 5-5 in the fifth.

Djokovic vs Del Potro in Shanghai Masters Final

Djokovic vs Del Potro in Shanghai Masters Final Novak Djokovic defeated Jo-Wilfried 62 75 to reach another Shanghai Masters Final where he will face Juan Martin Del Potro, who upset Rafael Nadal 6-2, 6-4 . "I've always been coming out in China and making some really, really good results, winning trophies," Djokovic said. "It's very positive because most of the people would think after the fourth Grand Slam of the year is over, that somehow the season is finished in the minds of maybe people who are not following consistently the tennis season." Potro will try to win his first Masters title while Nole is the defending champ. Del Potro hadn't beaten Nadal since the semifinals of the 2009 U.S. Open but he is playing fully fit and confident — he's coming off a win last week at the Japan Open that returned him to the top five in the rankings. He completely overpowered Nadal with his deep, punishing groundstrokes and fended off all six break points he faced. Nadal was broken twice to start the match as del Potro raced out to 4-0. The Argentine started to make a few mistakes in the second set, giving Nadal two chances to break in the second game. But the Argentine saved both with huge serves and put the pressure right back on Nadal, breaking him for a third time in the following game.

Djokovic Desperate to Hang onto Top Spot

Djokovic Desperate to Hang onto Top Spot

Novak Djokovic has warned the in-form Rafael Nadal that he will not give up the number-one spot in the rankings without a fight. The pair headline the men's draw at the ATP China Open, with defending champion, Djokovic, desperate to finish 2013 at the top of the rankings.

Nadal, a perennial favourite in the Betfair odds, is just 260 ranking points behind the Serb and could replace him for the first time since July 2011 with a strong week in Beijing.

The Spaniard has been in incredible form since returning from a seven-month injury break, collecting 10 titles since his return to action - including a record eighth French Open crown - before going on to beat Djokovic in the final of the US Open earlier this month.

Rafael Nadal wins 2013 US Open title

Rafa wins 2013 US Open title

Rafael Nadal beat Novak Djokovic 6-2, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 to win the 2013 US Open title.

Just eight months after there was speculation as to whether he would ever play again because of his troublesome knees, he is even poised to reclaim the world No 1 ranking before the end of the season.

Rafa has now won four on hard courts, he played 22 matches on hard courts this year and won them all.

This was a record 37 meeting between Rafa and Nole as senior professionals and for periods of the match the quality of tennis they provided was arguably better than ever, although Djokovic was unable to sustain that level in the closing stages.

During this final, the two men were both wonderful athletes and they treated the crowd to a succession of stunning rallies, repeatedly retrieving shots which had looked certain to be winners.

Nadal has been at the peak of his powers throughout the north American hard-court campaign and again played with consistent brilliance. Nobody gets out of difficult situations more effectively than the world No 2, who can turn defence into attack with the flick of his wrist.

Novak Djokovic US Open Semifial Interview | 9/7/2013

Novak Djokovic US Open Semifial Interview | 9/7/2013

Q. Third game of the fifth set obviously started turning into its own little thing. How did you come back from that after such a long game?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, first of all, I think, as I said on the court, Wawrinka was a better player for most of the better part of the match because he was aggressive and played better tennis. Other hand, me, I just tried to hang on and fight and be mentally tough and believe all the way through I can actually win. And I sincerely believed that as the match progresses and longer it goes, I felt I have maybe that physical edge over him, and that I also, being in particularly these kind of matches and situations, playing on a big stage in semifinals, maybe that experience could, you know, give me a little bit more of confidence on the court mentally, also. Even though I was quite nervous at the start of the match and we played five sets I still felt that I was there, you know, and that I was fighting. Credit to him for playing really well. We had some great exchanges, you know, in swirly conditions. Definitely not easy to play because you had to always adjust to the where the wind goes and make a lot of footsteps. In the end of the day, I managed to stay tough and play well when I needed to. That's something that definitely encourages me before the final.

Q. Stan said he found you were extremely nervous today. He said maybe because of his game you couldn't find a game plan. Was it the maybe reason, especially at the start of the match?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, yes. I was nervous because I mean, first of all, it's normal to be nervous, excited, whatever you want to call it, you know. There is a lot of sensations that go through your mind, through your body, because it's semifinals of Grand Slam. Even though I have been in this particular situation for many times in my career, I still feel the big excitement before the match, and I knew that he was playing well. He had a tremendous performance against Murray. I knew that he's gonna come out with big backhands and be aggressive, so, you know, I tried to be close to the line. But I wasn't managing to find my rhythm. That's what frustrated me. I wasn't hitting the ball well. A lot of unforced errors. But it was one of those days, you know, where even if you don't feel well on the court you have to be tough and believe that you can win. And I have done so.

Q. The warning for coaching seemed to take you by surprise. Did the umpire explain the reason?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Yeah, I mean, in that particular moment I thought that maybe it wasn't fair to give me a warning at that particular moment because I wasn't communicating with my box. But there were a few times that, you know, I was looking to my box and, you know, my coach was trying to help out. So I have o complaints about the warning. I think it's fair, in general, you know, and I had to take it.
