John Isner Beats Andy Roddick in ‘Winston-Salem’

It says a lot about how much attention I’ve been paying this tournament that only just now have I realised that ‘Winston-Salem’ is an actual real place, rather than just the sponsor of the ATP event held this week. But there ya go; you learn something new every day. Down Winston Salem, John Isner yesterday [...]

Gael Monfils Shows A Bit O’ Toughness

Gael Monfils saved a match point to move into the Legg Mason ATP 500 final with a 6-4 3-6 7-6(6) victory over John Isner in a rain delayed match that finished in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Robin Haase Wins In Kitzbuhel

Robin Haase picked up the first title of his career in the Kitzbuhel ATP 250 event, defeating Albert Montanes 6-4 4-6 6-1 in the final. I was so determined to act as if this tournament didn’t exist as not only is the title Bet-at-Home Cup insanely tacky, but the fact that we’re practically right in [...]

Ernests Gulbis Makes Us Remember….

That is, he made us remember why the hell we ever bothered to care about him last week by unexpectedly storming through to the LA Farmer’s Classic title. He knocking off Juan Martin Del Portro and Xavier Malisse en-route before taking out top-seeded Mardy Fish in the final. We’ll soon see if this is just [...]

Quotable Quotes: SO WHY DID YOU DO IT THEN?

After choking away the lead against Alex Bogomolov Jr, Thomaz Bellucci played a game of “stating the obvious” in the following presser; “You cannot lose such a match, leading 6-4 *4-3.” No, you can’t. Yet you just did. At this point I have fully come to accept that Thomaz is a mental midget, and though [...]

Thomaz Bellucci Kicks Off US Hardcourts In Style

Fourth-seeded Thomaz Bellucci made a not-too-shabby start to his title run in LA by crushing Alejandro Falla 6-0 6-1 in 52 minutes. This marks only Thomaz’s third ever tour quarterfinal on hardcourts. With his big serve, forehand and solid technique, it seems quite unbelievable that he has been unable to find any form off clay. [...]

Ernests Gulbis Wins One! Whole! Match!

The proof: From the sounds of it, he tried his hardest to choke the third set tiebreaker and was given the match with an atrocious backhand error from Malisse, but a win is a win and you can’t take that shining achievement away from Mr Gulbis. Now let’s see if he can (*gasp*) win two [...]

Gilles Simon Wins Hamburg - BUT WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

  1. He’s Back It has been a long road back from injury for Gilles Simon. Though he was officially out for around four months last year with his knee injury, in reality the injury in both his knees and consequent surgery set him back practically a year, with the knees bothering him from 2009 [...]

Quotable Quotes: Florian Mayer Blasts Nicolas Almagro’s “embarrassing” Behaviour in Hamburg

Nicolas Almagro is widely known to be one of the most unpopular ATP players amongst fans, and judging by Florian Mayer’s comments on Almagro following his 7-6(5) 7-6(3) loss to the Spaniard, the feeling is shared amongst his fellow players; “His behaviour was embarrassing. This has nothing to do with tennis. If I did something [...]
