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).
