2021 Australian Open: What to Watch on Tuesday Night
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Rod Laver Arena | 11 p.m. TuesdayAndrey Rublev vs. Daniil MedvedevAndrey Rubley and Daniil Medvedev secured the ATP Cup for Russia earlier this month, with neither player losing a singles match throughout. In their three meetings on the ATP Tour, Medvedev has come out on top each time, including in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open in September.This may be Rublev’s chance to finally overcome his friendly rival. He has looked particularly dominant, not dropping a set throughout the tournament. His match against Casper Ruud ended after only two sets when the Norwegian withdrew with an injury. Going into the quarterfinals, Rublev has led the field in both percentage of first service points won and second service points won, a sign of how hard it has been for opponents to break his serve.Medvedev has also been playing well, aside from a chaotic, disorganized third round match against Filip Krajinovic. He has now won 18 matches in a row, with his last loss coming in October at a tournament in Vienna. Although the fast surface fits Medvedev’s flat baseline shots, Rublev’s open stance is well suited in defense, and we’re sure to see many dynamic, aggressive point.Rod Laver Arena | 3:30 a.m. WednesdayRafael Nadal vs. Stefanos TsitsipasRafael Nadal, the No. 2 seed, has moved smoothly through the first four rounds, no surprise for a player with 20 Grand Slam titles. Although Nadal won his only Australian Open title over a decade ago, he has reached the finals on four other occasions since, and is a clear favorite in his half of the draw to do so again. Nadal’s powerful topspin shots are well-suited to clay courts where he can drag opponents around with tightly angled shots. Nadal’s ability to exploit his opponent’s weaknesses with relentless pressure can break most players on their best days.Stefanos Tsitsipas, the ATP finals winner in 2019, is a study in unpredictability. The fifth seed has a capable all-court game, but lacks the consistency to execute match after match. The 22-year-old has worked to improve this aspect of his game, but needed five sets to push back unseeded Thanasi Kokkinakis in the second round. After receiving a walkover in the round of 16, Tsitsipas will be well rested and hoping for an advantage against one of the most mentally tough players on tour.

Serena’s husband rips tennis administrator after win
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Serena Williams' husband Alexis Ohanian has fired another shot at Madrid Open owner Ion Tiriac after Williams booked yet another Australian Open semi-final appearance.Williams was in imperious form in her quarter-final clash against Simona Halep, thoroughly dismantling the No.2 seed en-route to a 6-3 6-3 win at Rod Laver Arena.Watch the Australian Open with live streams of every court at 9Now. Click here to start watching!The 39-year-old has looked extremely sprightly after being forced to pull out of the French Open early last year through injury, chasing down balls defensively with the same ferocity she did earlier in her career. Williams' vintage showing so far in the Australian Open has silenced many of her critics who believed her chances of winning another Grand Slam title were slim, with Tiriac one of the more vocal critics.Williams was in untouchable form against Simona Halep in her Australian Open quarter-final clash (Getty)Following Williams' dominant display against Halep and advanced to her 40th Grand Slam semi-final, Ohanian made sure to stick the boot into Tiriac on social media."Good thing no one listens to that racist sexist (clown) Tiriac," he tweeted.The tweet wasn't the first time Ohanian had taken aim at Tiriac and called him racist and sexist, after also doing so late last year when Tiriac called out Williams' physique."At this age and the weight she is now, she does not move as easily as she did 15 years ago," Tiriac said on Romanian TV."Serena was a sensational player. If she had a little decency, she would retire." Williams' improved lateral movement has stood out so far in her Australian Open campaign, with her agility a far cry from the version of her fans saw in Melbourne Park last year when she was hampered by ankle and Achilles issues.Williams' coach Patrick Mouratoglou admitted this week that her withdrawal from the French Open last year had allowed the 23-time Grand Slam winner to get out of a "vicious circle".Williams' lateral movement has been noticeably improved after she had been hampered by injuries (Getty)"We've been struggling those last years because she had a lot of injuries, so she was not able to practice the way we wanted," he said."It's a bit of a vicious circle because when you can't practice well, you don't get fit. When you're not fit, you get more injured. We had to get out of this vicious circle."In Roland Garros she had an injury that could get really worse, and that would have been extremely bad. That was definitely the right decision to stop, to heal, and to start working hard because she was able after that to do the necessary work in order to get fit."Now we're more in a virtuous circle than a vicious one. You have to start that virtuous circle by being fit, then everything goes better."For a daily dose of the best of the breaking news and exclusive content from Wide World of Sports, subscribe to our newsletter by clicking here!

Pliskova exacts revenge on Collins as familiar foe awaits
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, February 11, 2021 Czech Republic’s Karolina Pliskova celebrates after winning her second round match against Danielle Collins of the U.S. REUTERS/Asanka Brendon Ratnayake MELBOURNE—Former world number one Karolina Pliskova conceded she played far from her best tennis at the Australian Open on Thursday, but excelled in clutch moments to avenge a loss to Danielle Collins in a warm-up tournament just eight days ago. Pliskova, seeded sixth, lost serve twice in a see-saw opening set but pulled away in the second to book a place in the third round with a 7-5 6-2 win over American Collins, a 2019 Australian Open semi-finalist. After winning last week’s contest at the Yarra Valley Classic in two tightly-contested tiebreakers, Collins leaked errors from her normally reliable forehand, allowing Pliskova to take control late in the first set. “I don’t think was really good quality today. I think I just played better in some moments, which I didn’t last week,” Pliskova said. “I knew if I just play at least similar as I was playing last week, I knew it’s going to be difficult for her to repeat what she played last week. “It was more about like staying positive, staying in there. I knew I’m going to have some chances, which I did.” Up next for Pliskova, who is chasing her maiden Grand Slam title, is fellow Czech and 25th seed Karolina Muchova. The two are friends off the court and practised together during a mandatory two-week quarantine period before the Australian Open. “Even if we would not practise those two weeks in quarantine, we practice a lot in Czech. We’re actually quite good friends,” Pliskova said. “Of course, she’s a dangerous player. It’s going to be very tricky.” Read Next Don't miss out on the latest news and information.

Dasha’s classy act after tearful loss to Barty
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Daria Gavrilova couldn't hold back her emotions after a disappointing exit from the Australian Open, holding her head in her hands to hide her tears as she slumped in her chair immediately following her 6-1 7-6 (9-7) second round loss to compatriot and good friend Ash Barty.In a scrappy clash that never hit great heights, Gavrilova was invited back into the contest thanks to a sloppy second set from Barty, with the world's top player admitting she "lost her way" when she led 6-1 5-2.Watch the Australian Open with live streams of every court at 9Now. Click here to start watching!Daria Gavrilova has an emotional response to her Australian Open loss to Ash Barty. (Nine)Barty twice served for the match and failed, with Gavrilova gritting her teeth to force a tiebreaker, then earning two set points, before an unforced error finally gift wrapped Barty her progress into the third round.It was a missed opportunity that clearly irked Gavrilova, with disappointment written all over her face as Barty consoled her at the net.Gavrilova confirmed that she was upset with her performance with a tweet soon after she left the court, writing that she and Barty had "brought out the worst in each other" before wishing last year's semi-finalist luck in her quest to break the drought and deliver an Australian Open title for her nation."Keep on rolling @ashbarty! Let's go Aussies," she wrote, finishing with an Australian flag emoji.In many ways the disappointment expressed by Gavrilova is a great sign early in her return from a horror run of injuries.Losing to Barty in a fighting performance is no mean feat, particularly as Gavrilova's ranking has slipped all the way down to 445 in the world from a high of 20. Yet she defied her lowly ranking to easily account for 64th ranked Spaniard Sara Sorribes Tormo 6-1 7-5 in the first round on Tuesday.Barty sledges crowd over Happy BirthdayCommentating on Gavrilova's match with Barty for Nine, her Billie Jean King Cup captain Alicia Molik acknowledged that the underdog hadn't quite managed to execute her game plan as she would have hoped."It was a difficult match for both players, you can see how upset Dasha is," Molik said. "She didn't quite put in the performance she would have wished for or that she's worked for but for the number one player in the world Ash Barty, she did just enough of what she needed to do. She just bothered Dasha just that little bit more."For a daily dose of the best of the breaking news and exclusive content from Wide World of Sports, subscribe to our newsletter by clicking here!Australian Open: Ashleigh Barty v Daria Gavrilova

Former Champion Reveals Rafael Nadal’s Key Tactics at Australian Open 2021
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Despite battling a lingering back injury, Rafael Nadal didn’t show any signs of worry during his routine straight-sets win over Laslo Djere in the opening round of the 2021 Australian Open. Nadal pulled out of this year’s ATP Cup because of this back problem, hence his preparations for the Australian Open haven’t been ideal. Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, Spain’s Rafael Nadal in action during his first round match against Serbia’s Laslo Djere REUTERS/Loren ElliottDuring an interview, the 7-time Grand Slam champion Mats Wilander talked about being impressed by Nadal’s first-round performance. Wilander noted Nadal’s flattened backhand returns have been more destructive than his powerful forehands and helped him in shortening the points. “He’s hitting it harder on the backhand side than on the forehand, and part of that is Nadal wanting to shorten points; the courts are quicker, so he doesn’t have time to run around and hit forehands. So he needs to hit flat backhands,” said Wilander. Wilander on Rafael Nadal’s penchant for early season injuries Former World No.1 Wilander also offered an insight into Nadal’s persistent injury struggles, especially at the start of the season. Nadal has a history of sustaining injuries during the Australian Open; something that has forced him to withdraw frequently. At the 2014 Australian Open Final, Nadal encountered a back injury and lost the match, whereas he retired from the quarterfinals of the 2018 Australian Open against Marin Cilic because of a hip injury. Tennis star Rafael Nadal of Spain practices at Melbourne Park in advance of the Australian Open in Melbourne, Australia. REUTERS/Loren ElliottWilander feels Nadal’s injuries stem from the fact that the Spaniard has to practice on hard courts for a long duration before the Australian Open. Nadal’s high repetition training often ends up taking a toll on his body. However, Wilander also mentioned Nadal has earned enormous success with the training regime and injuries would not stop the 20-time Grand Slam champion from going the extra mile. “It could be a combination of hard courts and practising; He needs more repetition and pushes himself hard. This is Rafa Nadal, this is what he has done throughout his whole career and he is going to push himself to the limit,” added Wilander. The Spaniard will face Michael Mmoh in the 2nd round at Melbourne Park. Nadal is aiming to become the first man in the Open Era to win each Grand Slam twice. Will he see his dream through to the end?
