Thus he joins the likes of Andy Murray, the current World No 1, Rafael Nadal, 14-time Grand Slam title winner and the reigning US Open Champion Stan Wawrinka at the Club.

The Argentine who in 2009, defeated Roger Federer in five sets to win the US Open at Flushing Meadows stated that he was happy to be back in the Championships.

He said; “”I am so happy to be coming back to the Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club. It is a great event, to me a very traditional moment of the calendar, such a nice place to play in front of fans that have always been nice to me.”

He also went on to mention some of his memories there such as in 2013 where he got to the semi-finals at Wimbledon, winning the bronze Medal in 2012 at the Olympics held in London, and last year in Scotland where he participated in the Davis Cup. Read more »

Juan Martin Del Potro has had to endure a painful period off late

Juan Martin Del Potro has had to endure a painful period off late and he is still not in peace.

His career has taken a real pounding since the time he sustained a wrist injury and now, there are suspicions that he might not be able to fully recover from it ever.

He has been in touch with his doctor and if the reports coming from the close sources have any authenticity, then, the Argentina native has been advised to have another surgery on the damaged wrist.

Having already had surgery a couple of times, Del Potro is a bit reluctant to go under the knife again without any guarantee.

His situation at the current moment is not said to be good at all.

Recently, one of his close friends was quoted as saying, “Juan has not trained for some time. It’s almost impossible for him to train. He desperately wants to be back playing, but, unfortunately, he has not been able to do so. He has travelled to America quite a few times to have meetings with the doctor. He is only 26 at the moment and he does not want the road to end for him at this stage, but, at some point of time, he is bound to get tired.”

Del Potro has played just one tournament this year i.e. the Apia International Sydney Tennis Tournament. Read more »

Andy Murray and Tomas Berdych took on each other at the start of this year

There was some heat out there on the court when Andy Murray and Tomas Berdych took on each other at the start of this year and the reason for that was a woman, Dani Vallverdu.

Vallverdu had been in the support staff of Murray until the last season and then, she decided to switch to Berdych.

That probably provided Murray a little bit of extra fire in his belly when he came up against Berdych at the Melbourne Park.

The 26-year old wanted to prove a point to Vallverdu and he did that successfully as he completely blew away Berdych.

The duo is going to meet again in Miami in a couple of days’ time and it should not be surprising if the atmosphere remains heated there as well.

Murray and Berdych actually share quite a good relationship between themselves. Both have been mates since their teenage. So, no personal rift seems to exist there, but, still, there would be fierce competitiveness and both the players would be going flat out to make a mark.

Murray though said yesterday that he had no hard feelings in his heart for Vallverdu and he would even be inviting her in his wedding ceremony that is going to be held shortly. Read more »

Juan Martin Del Potro is best Player at Professional Level

It’s believed that a tennis player must have got two things to be able to become highly successful at the professional level and those are talent and physical strength.

But, if you are blessed with these two things, are you guaranteed to become a tennis legend?

Ask this question to the experts and they would say no and the greatest example of that is Juan Martin Del Potro.

The 26-year old Argentinean is skilled and powerful enough to go to the biggest heights of success in the game, but, one thing that always obstructs his way is his poor fitness. Read more »

Del Potro wont feature in Brisbane Internation Tennis

Juan Martin Del Potro is not going to feature in the Brisbane International Tennis tournament that is starting in the first week of the New Year.

He has made a slight change to his scheduling. Now, he would make his comeback to competitive tennis by participating in another hard court tournament in Australia i.e. Apia International Sydney Tennis tournament.

Del Potro has been out of the game for just less than a year, 11 months to be precise.

The last time that he had featured on the tour was in one of the tournaments in United Arab Emirates the previous year.

He had actually withdrawn himself during his first game in that tournament because of his wrist problem.

The 26-year old went under the knife thereafter and it took him a fairly long time to be able to recover from that operation and obviously, his ranking went down quite a bit during his absence from the game.

At this point of time, the Argentinean stands at no. 140. But, that’s not a problem. He would surely make an upward surge from there once he is up and running.

Confirming his participation in Sydney, Del Potro said, “I had fond memories of the tournament that I had played in Sydney in January last year. I had got a lot of support and I am expecting the same again. There could not have been a better place for me to get the season started. I hope I get into my rhythm quickly and go all the way to defend the crown.”

Del Potro had won the Apia International last season. That was the only singles competition that he won in 2014.

He would want his campaign to go the same smooth route this time around too there in Sydney.
