French Open 2017: La Decima for Nadal or Bust


Deja vu in men's tennis continues in the French Open as Rafael Nadal contests his 10th title - La Decima. Earlier this year, Roger Federer shocked everybody in the Australian Open, when he added that grand slam title to his already full cabinet of trophies.

Well, Rafa has to really fight for it because the guy on the other side of the net has a 3-0 win loss record in grand slam finals - and as everyone knows, Stan Wawrinka is the foil that disrupts the dreams of the Big Four (Novak, Roger, Rafa, Andy).

He is the only one (for now) who has really stood up to these four pillars of men's tennis- and I won't be surprised if he pulls it off.

It's going to be lonely though as most of my friends here in FB and in the gym are big Rafa fans, so I'll be the only one quietly cheering for Stan - one of the more outlandish players on the men's tour.

French Open 2017: Women's Tennis Has a New Superstar!


OMG! What can I say? Women's tennis has a new superstar!
This is one of the most amazing runs I've seen in any of the grand slams - and Jelena Ostapenko has defeated many pedigreed players to win this tournament.
She was very aggressive and fearless in each of her matches and even when she was one set 3-0 down in the finals, she still maintained that fighting spirit which you rarely see when the other player has become so dominant - and Simona Halep is no pushover player, because she has been here before.
It would be interesting to see how she progresses in the other grand slams - but this win will definitely embolden many players in the tour - to aim for that grand slam title - no matter who's on the other side of the court.

French Open 2017: A New Queen of Clay Will Be Crowned



I slept at past 2 AM last night as I spent five hours in front of the telly to watch the grand slam semi-final in the women's side.
That rarely occurs because, usually, when it's Serena or Maria playing, it would usually just take an hour and a half at most for each of them to dispatch their opponents.
However, this French Open is going to be special since we are sure of crowning a player winning her maiden grand slam title! That's pretty exciting!
And, it's the old guard vs. the new guard - the 20 year old Latvian Jelena Ostapenko and former finalist here, Romanian Simona Halep.
It's going to be a hard fought match if both played the way they did today. It's a winner takes all situation and for Halep, a possible #1 ranking.
As for me, I'll be cheering for Jelena. I just love the way she plays - fearless, bombastic, fiery.
Sometimes that's not a good idea to be on court but it's fun to see players who wear their hearts on their sleeves.

French Open 2017: The Future of Men's Tennis (Dominic Thiem) Meets his clay court Majesty (Rafael Nadal)


The first semi-final match later today is the exciting match between Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem. If there is a player who is going to spoil Nadal's run to a tenth French Open title, it is Dominic, and it would be very interesting how Thiem dismantles Rafa in a court where he is considered king.

Well, that was the Rafa of the old and the latest Rafa has some chinks in his armor. One advantage he has though is that he is well-rested because of the retirement of Carreno Busta in their match earlier.

However, Thiem is also riding on a high after a three-set dismantling of last year's champion Novak Djokovic. So I just hope both players bring their A-game tomorrow as the future of tennis meets his clay court Majesty.

French Open 2017: Halep and Pliskova Looking forward to a Second Grand Slam Final



Among the last four women in Roland Garros this year, Simona Halep of Romania is the most pedigreed, having reached the finals here a few years ago, in probably one of the best finals of any grand slam I've seen in the women's side.

With no Maria in sight, it is really for Simona to lose this title, and she almost did today, as she trailed in-form player, Elina Svitolina one set down and 5-1 in the second set - and yet she still won in a breathtaking turnaround!

I do hope she still has some wind in her sails because her opponent, Karolina Pliskova is a very accomplished player herself, reaching the finals of the US Open last year, and has defeated Serena in the grand slam stage at that same tournament.

I like the styles of both players but I am cheering for Simona this time. She won me over as a fan after her performance here in 2014. She almost upset Maria but when Maria is in form, it is very difficult to win over her.

It would be interesting to see a Halep-Bacsinszky final.

French Open 2017: Timea the Swiss vs. Jelena the Latvian


The French Open will have a first time winner on Sunday and it has come down to the final four - all very good clay courters - and all taking advantage of the absence of some of the marquee players.

Not to take away anything from these ladies, but they did sweep aside former #1 players (Wozniacki) and grand slam winners (Stosur, Kuznetsova) to get to where they are.

I have heard of Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia for sometime now but I never saw her play because cable TV only shows matches where Serena or Maria plays - and unless you play them - you will never air on tennis cable TV here in Asia.

She has a very good chance of making it to the final because I don't think she has any nerves to deal with! Anyhow, the semi-final stage is another beast altogether so it would be interesting to see if she would be as fearless as she was during her match against Caro.

Timea is no stranger to the semi-final stage of RG, so I am not at all surprised about her run. She was able to tame the beast which is the French crowd, who were prevented from supporting Kiki because of the blustering wind and the rain delays, not allowing the Frenchwoman any chance to rev them up.

It would be interesting to see the aggressive play of Ostapenko against the steady accurate play of Bacsinszky. As for me, I am more of a Timea fan since I was cheering for her when she played Serena here in the semi's two years ago (she lost).

French Open 2017: Nadal and Muguruza Look Commanding in the First Week



Watching this year's French Open without the usual marquee names - Serena, Roger, Maria - has kind of allowed me to zero in on two players whose matches are always shown on the cable channel I decided to concentrate on watching.
And both look like the ones to beat for the title.
I haven't seen Nadal play for more than two years now and his match against Basilashvili of Georgia was great to watch, not because he thrashed the poor Georgian 60 61 60, but because it reminded you of how great he really plays when he's fit and he's in the zone.
Basilashvili did not play poorly and I saw him play against Gilles Simon in the first round and he is doing well. It's just that nothing he did yesterday on court could thwart the total command Rafa had on the court.
I just hope Rafa is not peaking too early because tougher opponents await him - fellow Spaniard Bautista Agut in the next round - while Milos, Novak and Andy are possible opponents next week.
This is also the first time I have seen Garbine play in the early rounds, since last year, most of the coverage was on Serena. And this girl knows how to up her game when needed.
Anett Kontaveit and Yulia Putintseva are two very dangerous players since they have the weapons to hurt the top players. However, they still lack the fitness that's needed for long matches and the mental fortitude to continue the fight even when their body is getting tired.
And Garbine was so calm - even with the onslaught of all those powerful shots these two girls gave her. And she had the weapons needed to subdue the opposition coupled with the fitness that's needed to outlast the opponents.
The opponents keep getting stronger though, with Mladenovic next, and possibly Bacsinszky, Stosur and Halep next week.

French Open 2017: My Picks on the Women's Draw - Agnieszka Radwanska


Although clay is not really her strongest surface, now is the chance for Agi Radwanska to win her first grand slam title.

She has been to a quarterfinals here in Roland Garros in '13 and a couple of fourth rounds, but if she steps up her game, she may just find herself in the semi's, as she is my pick on the lower bottom half of the draw.

Karolina Pliskova is on this side of the draw but Agi has a better head-to-head than her. Caroline Garcia of France and Barbora Strycova of the Czech Republic are other possible players she may meet.

Garbine Muguruza is a possible finals opponent if she reaches that far.

French Open 2017: My Picks on the Women's Side - Simona Halep


This year's French Open is one of Simona Halep's best chances of winning her first grand slam. Since she broke out into the main draw, Simona has been one of the players touted to win a grand slam, but until now, it hasn't happened yet.

This season though bodes well for her, after a great clay court performance and a title at Roland Garros should be the crowning achievement after a scintillating run on clay.

However, that would depend on how mentally tough Simona is, especially that with Serena, Maria and Vika out of the draw, the public's expectation for her to perform tends to rise.

Among the players she will most likely meet are Daria Kasatkina and Elena Vesnina, both of Russia, Madison Keys of the US and a possible semi-final clash with Polish player, Agi Radwanska.

Garbine Muguruza looms in the finals. This is all based on the current head-to-head.

She has been in the finals here before in 2014, so she has been battle-tested here. Time to step it up!

French Open 2017: My Picks on the Women's Side - Gabrine Muguruza


In my book, there are two major contenders for the French Open title this year. One of them is in the bottom upper draw and it's last year's champion, Garbine Muguruza.

And I think she can retain that crown this year. I saw her second round match today against Anett Kontaveit of Estonia, and she really was calm throughout the game and showed her power as the game progressed.

If she can maintain that composure and killer instinct throughout this tournament, it's for her to lose the title. She will also meet some dangerous players on the way. The most likely ones are Yulia Putintseva of Ukraine, Shelby Rogers of the US and Timea Bacsinszky of Switzerland.

A possible clash with Samantha Stosur may happen in the semi's and Simona Halep in the finals loom.

French Open 2017: My Picks on the Women's Side - Samantha Stosur


Without Serena, Maria and Victoria in the mix in this year's French Open, it has become a bit of a free-for-all for anyone who wants to win a grand slam.

With Angelique Kerber out in the first round, this side of the draw has really opened up and based on the head-to-head, Samantha Stosur of Australia has the best record among all the players.

She has some formidable opponents waiting for her though, most of them up-and-coming players. They will most likely be American Bethanie Mattek-Sands, Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine, and Zhang Shuai of China.

She is also slated to meet defending champion Garbine Muguruza in the semi's if they both go through. Simona Halep could be her opponent in the finals.

She has reached the semi's here in '09, '12 and '16 and was in the finals in 2010, where she lost to Italian Francesca Schiavone, so it's a surface she's pretty comfortable in - so it would be a good chance for her to step up to the plate now that some of the top seeds are not present.

French Open 2017: Novak Djokovic is Rafa's Main Threat


Defending champion Novak Djokovic must've wished he would meet Nadal in the finals and not in the semi's, as what the draw has given him, but even then, one has to defeat everyone to win the title, whether they meet them earlier in the rounds, or later on.

He has had a respectable clay court season and his path to the semi's here in Roland Garros 2017 looks manageable, although he may have to contend with two very dangerous players, Lucas Pouille of France and Dominic Thiem of Austria along the way - and both can be true tests if he's ready for that semi-finals with Rafa - if they do both reach that stage.

Nevertheless, Novak is one of the players in the draw that may have some say if Rafa wins his tenth title here - or not.

French Open 2017: Rafael Nadal Set to Battle for 10th French Open Title


All of Nadal's fans must be heaving a big sigh of relief now that their man or at least the champion they knew of yore, looks like he's back.
After two lacklustre years of painfully watching him go through Roland Garros (I deliberately missed watching his matches), the gates of opportunity has opened for him once again - as if he's needed it - and his performance this clay season points to a possible 10th French Open title.
And his draw this year can certainly aid him. His first round match though is a test case of how ready he is - Benoit Paire of France is a highly respected player, and although his ranking has dipped this year, a chance to play Nadal is always a good opportunity to gauge where his game is as of the moment.
Nadal's other possible opponents as he goes deeper into the tournament may include Gilles Simon, Jack Sock and Milos Raonic, all very capable players, but not known to be clay court specialists, so it was easy for me to pick Rafa to get to the semifinal slot of his side of the draw.
Can he go all the way? On paper, Novak looms in the SFs and Murray for the title match, both very good match-ups, but in clay, with Rafa in form, the odds have often tilted towards his direction.
If this does pan out, tennis fans are in for another nostalgic grand slam moment reminiscent of Federer's win in the Australian Open earlier this year.
We can't let go of them, just yet.

French Open 2017: Men's Draw Pick #2 - Marin Cilic A Surprise Pick in a Crowded Draw


The tennis head-to-head can be a strange beast. In a relatively crowded French Open men's draw with good French players (Gasquet, Tsonga, Monfils), great Spanish players (Ferrer, Lopez) and Stan Wawrinka, it chose Marin Cilic as the player most likely to reach the semi's.

To think that I already modified the rule to the head-to-head within the past 3 years only. Even then, as the other seeds fall off, Marin remains the person to beat in this side of the draw, at least on paper.

Last year, he fell in the first round And he only reached as far as the 4th round in all his previous attempts.

It could be his year this year, or he could just as easily collapse.

We will see this week, as all his prospective opponents are no pushovers in clay - David Ferrer, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Richard Gasquet.

French Open 2017: Men's Draw Pick #1 - Andy Murray Seeks His First Roland Garros Title


I haven't seen yet the full men's draw of the 2017 French Open tennis as the section I have checked, as of now, is just the top upper part. On that side of the draw is the current world #1, Andy Murray, and he is my pick to go all the way to the semi's.
His road to the semi's looks very challenging already, as he may have to meet three former top 10 players in each of the rounds, just to get there.
Former US Open champion Juan del Potro looms as early as the 3rd round, then Tomas Berdych in the 4th and Kei Nishikori in the QFs, if everything goes to script.

Then there are two in-form clay courters, who may also have the chance to upset Murray, Alexander Zverev and Pablo Cuevas, who both had a great 2017 clay court season.
Andy got as far as the finals here last year, and has three semi-final finishes and a quartefinal finish, so his confidence on the clay here has just improved these past few years.
I would like to see where Nadal is first, before I can say he has a good chance of winning this title for the very first time.
