2015 US Open: Jessica Pegula - Finally Into A Grand Slam Second Round


American Jessica Pegula, currently ranked #290 in the world, makes a second round appearance at this year's US Open as she upset Alison Van Uytvanck (#55) 75 63.  Alison made the quarters of this year's French Open.

She will next meet Dominika Cibulkova in the second round, who upset Ana Ivanovic.  It's going to be a tough match as Dominika is in a roll!

2015 US Open: Benoit Paire on Fire as He Dispatches Kei Nishikori


That's what I love about tennis!  What I thought would just be a usual first round rout turned out to be an upset of one of my tournament favorites!

I've seen Benoit Paire play before and I know he can really be brilliant at times, but he's the kind of player who's impressive when he's hot and very odd, when he's cold.  I guess he decided to get it all together today, as he upset one of my tournament favorites, Kei Nishikori in five sets.

He played fearlessly in the first set, faltered a bit in the second and third, but woke up suddenly in the tiebreaker of the 4th round, and he never looked back!  

He just took his chances whenever he can and served like a top 4 player!  It takes guts to be that confident, especially in the fifth set, and especially if the player across you is a top 4 player and a finalist from last year!  I guess Benoit Paire was on fire and he did play splendidly as the match came to its conclusion.

I don't know though how deep into this tournament he can go because he's a hot and cold type of player, so it would really depend on the kind of Benoit Paire that gets to court on the day.  But if he continues to play this way, he should at least reach the 4th round, where a possible match-up with compatriot Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is a possibility.

2015 US Open: Dominika Cibulkova Begins Her Comeback with A Bang!


I just love Dominika Cibulkova! This pocket rocket of a player suddenly disappeared this year, and I found out she was injured pala.  It was her run to the finals of the 2014 Australian Open that she was really introduced to the world, and diminutive as she is, she has the firepower to intimidate players twice her height.

That happened today, when she sideswiped Ana Ivanovic 63 36 63 in the first round of the 2014 US Open.

Naawa naman ako kay Ana because ever since she has been ranked within the top 10 this year, her grand slam performances have been very dismal, ending it with a first round exit!

But still, kudos to Dominika because she never let up, even when she faltered a bit in the second set.  I think, if she just had more match play, she would've closed everything there, but since medyo rusty sya, she allowed Ana to go back in the match.

However, she wasted no time to dispatch Ana in the third set, thundering off forehands here and there.

2015 US Open Draw: Roger Federer Still Taking His Chances


It's amazing that with all the new talent that's in the men's game nowadays, that Roger Federer in his mature age, has managed to stay within striking distance of another grand slam glory. It almost happened in Wimbledon, it may happen again in Flushing Meadows.

As it is, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray seem to be his most tricky opponents but you never know what happens in the six stages before one reaches the finals.

With Federer's victory in Cincinnati, he has shown to the field that he still means business and wants that elusive 18th grand slam title. His potential opponents before reaching the semi-finals may include Kohlschreiber, Isner and Berdych and I think, Roger has a good record against all of them.

2015 US Open Men's Draw: Murray Wants To Continue His Solid Performance in the Slams


It's only this year that I've really noticed and watched how Andy Murray plays. Among today's big four (Federer, Djokovic, Nadal and him), he's probably the least flashy player and the more quiet one. Even compared to Stan, who has a very colorful lovelife aside from his tennis life.

Andy has been very consistent this year, reaching the semi's of the past three grand slams. Considering the quality of men playing right now, that's a very difficult task to achieve. I wouldn't be surprised if the final read Djokovic vs. Murray, because this is where Andy got his first grand slam, so I'm sure, his confidence level playing here in Flushing Meadows is very high.

He has two very tough possible opponents though that he may need to subdue before he gets to the semi's - that's Stan Wawrinka and Kevin Anderson.

Federer may also await him in the semi's if he does get through - so it's going to be a tough draw for Andy, starting in the quarters.

Well, actually, it starts for Andy in round 1, where he was drawn to meet one of the hottest upcoming stars in today's men's tennis, Nick Kyrgios. That sets a high bar for Andy to start with in his 2015 US Open.

2015 Men's Draw: Kei Tries for Another Run to the Finals in 2015


Just like Novak, Kei's path to the semi-final is also laden with potential great matches, including a possible meeting with defending champion Marin Cilic.

I haven't seen Cilic play much this year and his grand slam performances for 2015 haven't really been impressive, so I'm choosing Kei as the man to beat.  Tsonga and Ferrer are also on this side of the draw but their past hardcourt performances haven't really brought them deep in this tournament.

And Kei has been playing well currently and has performed well in this slam last year.

2015 US Open Men's Draw: Djokovic Should Be Ready for a Tough Journey for Slam #3 of 2015


This has definitely been Novak Djokovic's year, grand slam-wise, with already two 2015 slams tucked in his belt, and a third one is a possibility as well.
There are many good players on Novak's side of the draw in this year's US Open, with Goffin, Raonic and Nishikori as possible opponents. Rafa may also be in there, if he performs better than he has did in the other slams.
Kei could be his possible opponent in the semi's and the Japanese has been playing great lately, so this could be a great match-up.
However, Djoko has been able to lift his game every chance he has needed to, so he still is my pick to get the finals berth on his side of the draw.

My Baby Borna Coric Plays Rafa on Day 1 of the US Open!


OMG! What an exciting day 1 for the US Open! My tennis crush du jour, Borna Coric is going to play Rafa Nadal. Nothing like 2 hunks playing on the court noh?
Naku Rafa, don't embarrass yourself and lose in the first round of a grand slam. You've been playing so uninspired lately. May injury ka ba, lovelife problems, family problems, bored na with the game, I haven't really read an article yet that has explained your sudden descent.
Anyway, my baby boy has nothing to lose and I've seen him play, he's very good! He will certainly be thrust into the spotlight if he wins over Rafa!

Heard that Borna is coming to Manila as well. Yun lang sa MOA Arena, well-airconditioned, so he won't be taking off his shirt between sets, no money shots......sayang pera, charot!
The game would be at 7AM, Tuesday, local time.

2015 US Open Women's Draw: Can Simona Halep Finally Make It to the Grand Slams Winner Circle?


While the upper section of the women's draw have the veterans slugging for the finals spot in this year's US Open, the underachievers yet very talented and relatively new players are in the bottom.

Simona Halep, like Petra Kvitova, the other top seed on their section of the draw, has also been severely underachieving in this year's grand slams.  She did reach the quarters in the Aussie Open but fell early in the next two slams.  

She looked like she was undergoing some limelight crisis, which is not uncommon for new players suddenly thrust into the limelight after a great showing in a slam. In 2014, Simona almost won the French Open title, fighting fiercely against Maria Sharapova.

However, she has been doing really well in this summer's US Open series so she really is the player who has the means to upset Serena's 2015  grand slam achievement.

Another in-form player, Lucie Safarova, stands in the way of Simona, so it would be an interesting match-up, in case both women do meet in the quarters.

2015 US Open Women's Draw: Kvitova's Firepower and Experience Should Push Her Through


Petra Kvitova has been underachieving in the grand slams this year, reaching the fourth round only once, losing again and again to a much better player on the day.
However, since Caroline Wozniacki is the other top seed on her side of the 2015 US Open draw, Petra's firepower should be able to subdue Caroline,
Kvitova's other possible opponents include Garbine Muguruza and upcoming player Anna Schmiedlova, two very talented young players, but since experience is on her side, Kvitova should be able go through them.

2015 US Open Women's Draw: Maria Has to Find Her Anti-Serena Weapon Fast!


Maria Sharapova must've been disappointed to see that Serena is once again on her side of the draw in the final grand slam this year. She lost to Serena in the Aussie Open final, and then in the semi's of Wimbledon a few weeks ago.
If all the stars align in the draw, she could meet Serena in the semi's again in Flushing Meadows - and we know how dismal Maria has been everytime they've met. Maybe she should study how Alize Cornet (who has defeated Serena thrice in one year!) or Garbine Muguruza (who pummeled Serena 62 62 in RG last year) or even how Belinda Bencic did it since it was the most recent Serena defeat.
I don't think Maria has a weapon that is more superior to Serena, and she doesn't have the volleying skills that Halep or Radwanska has nor the great defensive plays of
Anyway, Ivanovic is the other good contender in this side of the draw but I don't remember Ana ever doing very well on the American hardcourts.
Makarova, last year's semifinalist can also be a potential spoiler against Maria. Bouchard has been performing so poorly this year, I don't think she'd be a threat in the later rounds.

2015 US Open Women's Draw: Serena on a Historical Quest


It is but fitting that for Serena to achieve her first on-the-year Grand Slam, that she would have to fight in a very tough draw to make her achievement more meaningful!

As soon as I saw the players on her side of the draw, I was amazed to see the number of quality players in there that could at least give Serena, something to chew on!

First on the list is the possibility that she would meet her summer Swiss tormentor, Belinda Bencic in the semi's.  Not everyone saw how Belinda subdued Serena in a less-seen pre-US Open tournament, but in the grand slam stage, more tennis fans would be able to see how crafty and aggressive the Swiss miss is.

There's also the up-and-coming Karolina Pliskova who's a very talented and resilient player.  Parang si Aga Radwanksa when she was in top form.

Second, there is the possibility of meeting two talented fellow American players, Madison Keys and Sloane Stephens, two players who I think, could give Serena problems, if they are on top form.

I haven't seen the other side of Serena's draw yet so I don't know who her possible semifinal opponent could be.

One interesting observation on this draw is the presence of two sister pairs currently active in the women's tour, the Williams and the Radwanska's!  There's even a chance that the latter would meet each other in an early round.  Also,Karolina, one-half of the Czech Pliskova sisters is on this side of the draw, as well.

By the way, if Belinda Bencic wants to go further in this grand slam, there is a possibility that she would have to defeat the two Williams sisters in the same tournament - a feat which only a few women players have done.  

I only remember Justine Henin as one of the players to be able to do so.  Yun lang, I forget what tournament, but it was one of the top ones.  I believe one of her grand slam wins, if I'm not mistaken.

Excited to See Grigor Dimitrov in Malaysian Open Tennis Next Month in KL


Among the players going to KL to compete in the Malaysian Open Tennis are many of my favorite good looking players like Richard Gasquet, Feliciano Lopez, and most importantly baby Fed, Grigor Dimitrov!  There has been much hype about his talent and what he can do. It would be great to finally see him play in KL.

I'm really looking forward to the competition this year!
