Federer is Seeing The Olympic’s Big Picture
Federer has boosted his Wimbledon confidence even further with his
three-set winning start over Alejandro Falla at the London Olympic
tournament, With his next match coming against Julien Benneteau, the
three-set format at Wimbledon could poses a theoretical danger after the
Swiss trailed Benneteau two set to love a month ago on the grass.
The 30-year-old said that he's finally absorbed the fact
of claiming his seventh title at Wimbledon three weeks ago over Andy
Murray and running his career total to 17 majors. He is trying to fill a
gap by winning his first Olympic gold, saying every round feels like a
Sharapova Sees That The Olympics is Different From a Tour
Sharapova is finding fame has its ups and downs at the London Olympics.
She insisted carrying the Russian flag in the Official Opening ceremony
was one of the most memorable experiences of her life but suffered the
consequences of being one of the world’s most recognizable sportswomen
when she visited the Olympic Village cafeteria.
“I'm usually pretty naïve about like people's knowledge
of me, my career, what I've achieved,” admitted a grinning Sharapova
after her first competitive appearance that produced an emphatic win
over Israel’s Shahar Peer . “I try to be pretty humble about it, but the
biggest mistake I've made in a long time was entering the cafeteria. I
didn't walk out eating any food. I barely got an orange juice. It was
quite funny. Actually, I didn't sign any autographs, it was just
pictures. I felt like a little statue.”
Baltacha is Looking at Her Career
Elena Baltacha is pondering her tennis future after a first-round exit
at the London Olympic event, with the 28-year-old revealing that she
might well require surgery on both of her dodgy ankles.
The player admitted: going under the knife could mean the
end of her career which has left her with a modest `02 ranking. "We're
talking about taking six months and having the surgery done," she told
Murray Senses a Warmth From the British Spectators
Murray admits he feels a new warmth and affinity from the British public
after his Wimbledon final display and subsequent emotional tears. And he
is in the mood to repay this new support by winning an Olympic medal.
If there were any fears Murray’s return to the
Olympic-garbed Centre Court might suffer from a lack of intensity after
the disappointment of the Wimbledon final exactly three weeks earlier,
they were perfectly balanced by an exemplary opening-round performance.
Every aspect of the Murray game seemed to be working perfectly as he
outplayed Stainslas Wawrinka 6-3 6-3. His motivation was clear as he
marched to victory in less than an hour and a half and repaying the
support he felt from the crowd.
Hewitt Denies Retirement is Approaching
Hewitt enters as Australia's battler in yet another Olympic games, with
the 31-year-old former Wimbledon winner assuring that retirement is not
yet on the horizon.
"There has been speculation for the last 20 Grand Slams.
I'm the ultimate professional, focused on what I have to do, and once
you get other thoughts, you're not going to do your best," he told local
Russell Says Paire Does Not Play a Normal Game
Frenchman Benoit Paire came and went as first seed at the Farmers
Classic in Los Angeles, with his peculiar behavior on court making his
losing effort even more of a puzzle. The No. 50 is known as something of
an iconoclast, playing his own way and in particularly unorthodox
He paid the price for his quirks, crashing out in his
opening match in straight sets to 34-year-old American grinder Michael
Russell. The top seed committed 38 unforced errors, with the match
taking an even more bizarre turn due to what might or might not have
been an abdominal muscle problem.
Radwanska Wants to Forget Her Historical Match as Soon as
historians will remember Julia Goerges first round win over Agnieszka
Radwanska but the beaten Wimbledon finalist will want to purge the
memory of her demise as soon as possible.
It feels like it’s already been used for two weeks and
there are a lot of bad bounces,” said the 23 year-old from Krakow. “For
sure it's not the same court that it was three weeks ago.”
Querrey Has Top 20 Ranking in His Sights
Querrey is eyeing a possible return to the Top 20 and a US Open seeding
dream after lifting his ranking from 57th to 37th by winning this third
