DOMINIC TAKES DOWN KING OF CLAY! NOVAK TAKES DOWN THIEM! ZVEREV DOMINATES DJOKOVIC!

DOMINIC THIEM GOT HIS REVENGE IN ITALY JUST DAYS AFTER LOSING TO RAFAEL NADAL THE KING OF CLAY WINNING 17 CLAY COURT MATCHES AND WINNING MONTE-CARLO, BARCELONA, AND MADRID BEFORE COMING UP AGAINST THE ONE HANDED BACKHAND POWER OF THIEM.  HE REALLY LET RAFA KNOW THAT HE WAS NOT THE PRISONER THIS TIME AROUND. HE ADDED SOME RPM'S TO THE FH AND BH ADDED A MIGHTY SERVE AND HE WON IN STRAIGHT SETS 6-4, 6-3.  WE WERE WAITING FOR THE CHARGE FROM NADAL BUT HOW MUCH CAN A MAN DO WHEN ON THE FLIP SIDE DOMINIC ZONED IN, FORGOT ABOUT LAST WEEK AND THE PLAYER ON THE OTHER SIDE AND JUST PLAYED TENNIS.

FABIO FOGNINI SHOWS UP BIG IN ITALY, TAKES DOWN MURRAY!

THE SMOOTH ELEGANT AND TALENTED FABIO FOGNINI PLAYED LIKE WE ALWAYS EXPECTED HIM TO PLAY.  MARVELOUS!  CAIO EVERYBODY I CAN PLAY YOU KNOW! HE WALKS AND PLAYS WITH NO INTEREST IN THE GAME BUT, TODAY HE SHOWED UP HUGE AGAINST WORLD NUMBER ONE ANDY MURRAY.  ANDY HE'S TRYING TO GET HIS GROOVE BACK AFTER WINNING IN DUBAI HIS 45 TITLE, LOSING IN MADRID, BARCELONA, MONTE-CARLO AND NOW ITALY. FABIO CRUSHED THE GROUND STROKES OFF BOTH WINGS. ON TOP OF THAT HE LEFT ANDY STANDING IN HIS TRACKS WITH DROP SHOT.  FOGNINI SET IT UP WITH THE SERVE OR A PIERCING FOREHAND HITTING CLOSE TO THE LINES CONTROLLING PLAY ALL DAY LONG.  IT WAS RAINING DROP SHOTS, ANDY NEVER SAW THE ITALIAN COMING . ANDY SUCCUMBED TO FABIO 6-2, 6-4 WITH 31 WINNERS TOTAL,WERE 23 FOREHAND WINNERS.  ONLY IF HE CAN CONTINUE TO PLAY THIS WAY ALL THE TIME BECAUSE HE HAS THE WEAPONS, POWER AND FINESSE.  IT'S HIS HEAD MOST OF THE TIME LIKE MOST MOST OF US GETS IN THE WAY.  MAYBE WITH A NEW BABY ON THE WAY HE CAN GET FOCUSED MORE. HE'S GOT GAME, BIG GAME!

NADAL INVINCIBLE ON CLAY IN MADRID!

IT WAS EXPECTED! RAFAEL NADAL IN A REJUVENATION MOMENT IN HIS CAREER IS SHOWING WHAT HE'S MADE OF.  PURE SOLIDITY, POWER, CONFIDENCE AND GREATNESS!  AGAIN THOUGH DOMINIC THIEM PUSHED RAFA IN THE FIRST SET TIE-BREAK RAFA IS CLEARLY PLAYING IN THE IONOSPHERE SOMEWHERE WHO KNOWS WHERE!  DOMINIC THRU THE KITCHEN SINK AT NADAL BUT THE "KING OF CLAY PREVAILED 7-6(8), 6-4 AT THE MADRID OPEN IN LA CAJA MAGICA. THE WEAPONS TO WIN THIS EVENT WERE PIERCING  FOREHANDS, RIDICULOUS PASSING SHOTS AND THAT SERVE CREATED SHORT BALLS FOR THE DROP SHOT.

SVETLANA KUZNETSOVA POUNCES ON EUGENIE BOUCHARD IN MADRID!

THE 31 YEAR OLD FROM RUSSIA SVETLANA KUZNETSOVA HAD SOME UNFINISH BUSINESS WITH THE CANADIAN EUGENIE BOUCHARD YESTERDAY.  THE DAY BEFORE EUGENIE TOOK DOWN MARIA SHARAPOVA IN AN EXCITING DUAL.  WELL THIS DAY IT WAS A DIFFERENT STORY.  MARIA'S COMPATRIOT SVETLANA SENT BOUCHARD PACKING WITH A BAGGLE IN THE SECOND SET 6-4, 6-0.  WOW, HITTING OFF THE GROUND LUNGING RETURN OF SERVES FOR WINNERS LIKE A 21 YEAR OLD.  THE TWO-TIME GRAND SLAM CHAMPION TOOK CONTROL, DISMANTLED THE 21 YEAR OLD EVEN WITH THE HEAVY BALLS BECAUSE OF RAIN.

BALANCE, STRONG LEGS AND CONFIDENCE NEEDED TO THE ON CLAY!

IMAGINE WATER SKING, SNOW SKING, THE MANY MUSCLES USED TO STAY UP ON YOUR SKIS.  THE BALANCE YOU NEED TO STAY UPRIGHT AND GLIDE THROUGH THE SNOW OR WATER. WELL ON THE RED STUFF YOU NEED SOME RIDGES UNDERNEATH YOUR TENNIS SHOES TO SLIDE AND MAKE QUICK STARTS AND STOPS.  RIGOROUS WORKOUTS WITH THE LEGS ARE NEEDED.  A SLIDE BOARD THAT THEY USE FOR SPEED SKATERS IS ONE THAT I THINK ABOUT. I ALSO ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO SPEND 60 TO 70% ON LEG DEVELOPMENT. AS RALLIES ARE SOMEWHAT LONGER BECAUSE OF THE SLIDING , THE TWISTING AND TURNING OF LIGAMENTS, ANKLES, HAMSTRINGS.

KYRGIOS GONE IN 72 MINUTES

THE EXPECTATION WAS FOR THIS YOUNG HOT ROD FROM DOWN UNDER TO GIVE "EL TORO" RAFA NADAL A RUN FOR HIS MONEY.  BUT I THINK WE ALL GOT SHORT CHANGED.  EVERYONE IS LOOKING FOR A CHALLENGE.  NICK FELL SHORT OF HIS POTENTIAL LOSING TO THE KING OF CLAY 6-3, 6-1.  MAYBE IT'S THE ALTITUDE OF 2500 FT, OR MAYBE THE WATER AS NICK MISS SHOTS BY A HAIR.  THEIR 1 TO 1 H2H RECORD WAS UP FOR GRABS AS NADAL HAS DEFEATED KYRGIOS ON CLAY TWICE NOW.  IS THIS KID NO LONGER A THREAT?

MARIA SHARAPOVA PROVES HERSELF, THOUGH FOES ARE LEFT DIVIDED!

THE GOLDEN GIRL FROM RUSSIA IS BACK AFTER A DOPING BAN FOR 15 MONTHS WHERE PLAYERS THINK THAT SHE SHOULD NOT GET A WILD CARD INTO ANY EVENTS. MAYBE PLAYING SMALLER EVENTS SAYS AGNIZESKA RADWANSKA WHO IS 13-2 AGAINST THE RUSSIAN.  VENUS STATES THAT THINGS HAPPEN. ONE SINGLE THING IN LIFE DOESN'T DEFINE YOU. IF SHE CHEATED WHY WOULD SHE BE GIVEN A WILD CARD HER COMPATRIOT SVETLANA KUZNETSOVA IGNITED AT INDIAN WELLS.  HER TWO YEAR BAND WAS REDUCED AS THEY FELT THAT SHE DID NOT "INTEND TO CHEAT".

RAFA CRUSHES OPPONENTS ON CLAY, MADRID NEXT!

RAFAEL NADAL IS BACK IN THE DRIVERS SEAT.  YES THE KING OF CLAY IS STRONG PLAYING WITH LOTS OF VIGOR, STAMINA AND CONFIDENCE.  THE KIND HE HAD WHEN HE COMPILED AN 81-MATCH WINNING STREAK ON CLAY BETWEEN APRIL 11 2005 AND MAY 20 2007.  THOUGH HE'S LOST 3 STRAIGHT TO ROGER FEDERAL IN AUSTRALIA, INDIAN WELLS AND MIAMI HE IS ON THE ROAD TO THE FRENCH OPEN WITH EXCELLENT RESULTS.  HITTING THE BALL AT OVER 4,000 RPM'S NO ONE IS STRIKING THE BALL WITH SUCH ACCURACY AND VELOCITY TO TOP THAT OFF.

A WELL KEPT SECRET

IMAGINE PLAYING FOR YOUR 23RD GRAND SLAM AGAINST YOUR SISTER WHOM YOU LOVE.  YOUR TOTAL FOCUS WAS TO WIN WIN WIN BUT ON THE INSIDE YOU ARE WINNING IN A WAY THAT NO ONE KNOWS ACCEPT MAYBE YOUR SISTER AND FAMILY. AS MUCH AS WE ALL WANT OT SEE SERENA TIE MARGARET COURT FOR HER 24TH GRAND SLAM AND HOPEFULLY SURPASS HER.  THEIR WILL BE A SLIGHT DELAY!  SERENA AS EVERYONE KNOWS BY NOW SERENA WON HER 23RD SLAM WHILE SHE WAS PREGNANT!  YES, TWO WINS DOWN UNDER.  THE STORY SHE WILL TELL HER CHILD WHEN IT IS DUE IN SEPTEMBER.

ONCE A KING ALWAYS A KING! RAFAEL NADAL WINS 10TH IN MONTE CARLO

BESIDES ROGER FEDERER  RAFAEL NADAL IS THE HOTTEST PLAYER ON TOUR WHILE NOVAK AND ANDY SUFFER WITH INJURY BUT ALSO MENTAL AND PHYSICAL EXHAUSTION.  MAYBE THE 6 MONTH BREAK FOR ROGER AND RAFA HAS PAID OFF. THEY ARE PLAYING LIKE  THE NEXT GENERATION. RAFA IS JUST MOWING THE LAWN OF THE LIKES OF ALBERT RAMOS-VINOLAS A LEFTY AS WELL, AND COUNTRYMAN, WITH AN EASY 6-1, 6-3 WIN IN THE MONTE-CARLO ROLEX MASTERS FINAL.  TENNIS VINTAGE WAS THEIR TO DO THE HONORS. THE ARGENTINIAN GUILLERMO VILAS WHO IN HIS TIME WAS THE CLAY COURT CHAMPION WINNING 49 CROWNS.
