Day 1 preview : Roger – Rafa – Murray starting their compaign


Either Rafa or Roger has to defeat 3 top players for the title. But everyone should start it by winning their crucial first rounds. Many top players somewhat struggled in their first rounds. This might be because they are nervous at the starting and the opponent plays aggressive and precision tennis. Generally top seeds will be against qualifiers who has match practice in the last few days, where as top seed players won’t have that, anyway  seeded players will pick up quickly and win easily.

On the other side Djokovic must be laughing that easy lane till final. 😉 Unless he loose control over the game and the opponent played superb, Djokovic is not going to be out of tournament till final.

Murray, who lost to Roger Federer last year and won Gold medal in the next month at the same venue,on the other side may face either Rafa or Roger in semi-final. Murray left Roland Garros because of injury and he is also in good form after winning Queen’s cup.

Overall this is a tough draw for Roger to defend his title. Let’s see. Any thing can happen in tennis.

Don’t forget

Juan Martin Delpo is back in track after his health problems. And Dimitrov, the baby fed playing in his first Wimbldon as a tennis pro. In junior level he won the Chamionships already.

Rafa edges Djoker in thrilling semis


What a match.!! Don’t know about the records in how much time they have played but, it was damn beautiful. Both showing aggressiveness at right times made the match more interesting. Finally, it was Rafa who got place in the final this year when Djokovic hit the ball outside the baseline. And Rafa showed that he won’t lose to Novak at Roland Garros. Djoker defeated Rafa in gruelling final at Monte-Carlo this year. This is consider to be a revenge match for Rafa. Who showed his signs at the end that i’m a dictator.

Absolutely Stunning performance from Djoker in the 4th set. Turned into super human mode again when Rafa was serving for the match to place in his 8th final. With the momentum he won tie breaker too and eventually match went to 5th set. 5th set started with break of Nadal serve and quick hold of Novak serve and Djoker went to 2-0 lead.

That simple smash missed by Djoker in the final set when he was about to get 5-3 lead gone when he touched net. And it was very poor game when he was at 7-8 giving 3 break points to the spaniard and playing bad at right at end of the game. A huge disappointment for Novak. He almost made it last year finals. He failed again here in semis with 4-6 6-3 1-6 7-6 7-9.

Meanwhile Ferrer win first set with 6-1 against Tsonga in another semis.

Rafael Nadal didn’t get any trouble from Stan. Rafa won in straight sets 6-2 6-3 6-1. Stan broke his racquet when he was serving to stay in the first set at 5-1, and he won that point and then game and it was 5-2. From that moment Stan really gave hard fight to Rafa who maintained his game well today too. And eventually Rafa won crucial points and through to semis.

On the other hand, Novak worked hard for berth in semis. Tommy Haas really gave a great fight, but the top guy Novak done the damage at right time. And completed his match with 6-3 7-6 7-5. Haas another veteran who is playing very good tennis these day at the age of 35. The second set would have won by Haas in the tie breaker. with 4-2 lead in the tie break, Haas loss the set. But continued his fight for the next set too. But Djoker, the strong man through to semis and will play against Rafa on Friday. 🙂

Hope no rains on friday for this match. Last year they met here in final, which was interrupted by rain and forcibly prolonged to next day game. That match won by Rafa, but the recent form from Novak against Rafa is good. So expecting a great battle between these two.

And on the other semis would be Ferrer vs Tsonga.
