Australian Open Men’s Final: Super Six! Djokovic Reigns Supreme

Novak Djokovic knelt down and kissed the court on Rod Laver Arena, after winning his sixth Australian Open, to match the great Roy Emerson’s record, and join the legendary Rod Laver and Bjorn Borg on eleven Grand Slam titles. It is an incredible achievement from a man who has taken tennis to a new level, so high that even […]

Australian Open: Kerber Shocks Serena In Epic Final

  Has there ever been a shock quite like it? Angelique Kerber may have been seeded but she was also given no hope against arguably the greatest there has ever been. Yet it was the German who stunned tennis and humbled Serena Williams with a scarcely-believable performance and a fully-merited 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 victory in […]

Australian Open Day 12: Murray Beats Raonic To Make Fraternal History

  Andy Murray’s amazing fighting spirit and ability to focus brought him through a five-set epic against Milos Raonic, the climax only spoilt by an injury to the big Canadian. Had the Scot’s stubborn streak not kicked in, however, he would not have been able to remain in the contest until the younger man’s body […]

Australian Open Day 11: Destroyer Djokovic Downs Fed

You had to see this to believe it. Even Roger Federer in his prime would have struggled to cope with such relentless, ruthless precision from an opponent in the opening two sets. How does Novak Djokovic do it? Whatever the answer is, tennis seems to have found a man more excellent than any before, someone […]

Australian Open Day 10: Murray To Face Raonic

Andy Murray’s on-court tantrums don’t always work in his favour – often quite the reverse. But it was a different story during his gutsy victory over David Ferrer in their Australian Open quarter-final, 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 6-2, 6-3. If ever there was a sportsman who needed to release some tension and frustration, it was the […]

Australian Open Day 9: Fantastic Federer To Face Djokovic

The incredible Roger Federer just keeps producing a quality of tennis that proves too much for most younger men. He knows he has to play aggressively, because he can’t afford to drop sets and slip into marathon contests at the age of 34 – not if he is to remain fresh enough to compete genuinely […]

Australian Open Day 8: Raonic Stuns Wawrinka

Milos Raonic has knocked out 2014 Australian Open winner Stan Wawrinka in a five-set thriller in Melbourne, making a mockery of his odds at the start of the tournament. It was the first time in five tries that Raonic had beaten Wawrinka – and he was clearly delighted afterwards. GOALS ‘This is the next step […]

Day 7 Australian Open: Nishikori Impresses, Novak Pushed To Limit

Kei Nishikori produced some truly sparkling tennis to defeat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – and in doing so avenge his five-set loss to the Frenchman at Roland Garros last year. Yesterday’s contest was more straightforward, but only because the hero of Japan was so brilliantly self-assured in what should have been an evenly-matched contest. Instead it ended in an emphatic 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 […]

Australian Open Day 6: Murray and Konta Through, Muguruza Out

Andy Murray defeated Joao Sousa, apparently unaware that his father-in-law, Nigel Sears had collapsed in the stands while watching the player he currently coaches, Ana Ivanovic. By the time Murray had clinched his 6-2, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 victory over Sousa, the family crisis seemed to be over. Sears, 58, who had apparently fallen heavily on steps at Rod Laver […]
