Rafael Nadal vs Lukas Rosol

Rafael Nadal vs Lukas RosolCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

Spanish pro tennis star Rafael Nadal assured reporters Tuesday that he is in the best time of his competitive career, after a season with a lot of doubts, and some ups and downs on his perfect form when playing.

Nadal stressed that he currently does not have those nerves during the season, so now it feels good in matches and training, and that is his thought, facing the Masters in London.

Although he has never been the winner of a Grand Slam tournament, the Spanish, world number six, failed to qualify for the season-ending 15 to 22 November.

Nadal believes he has regained a competitive practically acceptable level, although not yet reached the courts that led him to dominate the sport in the last decade by the Swiss Roger Federer.

From College Football, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the best online gambling options, check it now!

Nadal will make a debut in Paris Wednesday, against the winner of the match between Czech Lukas Rosol and Spanish Guillermo Garcia-Lopez.

Lukas Rosol is a foe who must have haunted many of the Spaniard’s nightmares over the three years since Wimbledon 2012. In the second round of the tournament, the then-world no. 100 seemed almost possessed as he unleashed killer groundstrokes, untouchable serves and lethal winners en route to a five set victory over the Majorcan. And Nadal does not take any defeat – let alone early Slam defeat, at a tournament he cherishes – lightly.

In the years since, Rafael Nadal has not fallen to this same opponent again – over two meeting in 2014, and another just last week. He now leads their head-to-head record by 3 wins to 1. But that almost wasn’t the case. As the lefty competed his first tournament on indoor hard-courts just last week at the Swiss Indoors Basel, he had the misfortune of drawing Rosol first round: A player with a legendary win over him, and the flat, sharp game that loves the enclosed atmosphere. The world no. 6 had lost the first set 6-1, and Lukas Rosol was serving for victory at 5-4 in the second set before the 29-year-old produced a stunning comeback. Breaking his foe at a pivotal moment, he went on to close out a 7-5 set, before eventually clinching victory in a final set tiebreak. It was all the more phenomenal when you consider the mental issues that have plagued the Grand Slam champion in many a big moment during this year of trial.

As the pair meet for the fifth time on Wednesday – barely a week after their most recent encounter – Rafael Nadal will surely take confidence and insight from the events of several days ago. But Lukas Rosol, too, has much to be upbeat about. Inches away from upending the eventual runner-up in Basel, the Czech can be in no doubt about what he must do to achieve victory over him in Paris.

And while Nadal has the benefit of the first round bye that top seeded players receive here, the situation may actually work out in Rosol’s favour. A qualifier into the event, the world no. 76 has multiple match wins under his belt on these courts, and is coming off a win over another Spaniard: Guillermo Garcia-Lopez. A 6-2 2-6 6-3 scoreline may not sound convincing, but it is a win all the same – and over a tricky opponent, at that. To have come out on the right end of a tough duel the round before Nadal can only be a positive.

Lucie Safarova qualifies for WTA Finals

Lucie SafarovaCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

Lucie Safarova grabbed the last spot at the WTA finals Thursday after Carla Suarez Navarro lost to a qualifier at the Kremlin Cup.

Suarez Navarro could have qualified for the season-ending tournament in Singapore by reaching the final in Moscow but was beaten 6-1, 6-2 by Russia’s Daria Kasatkina in the quarterfinals.

Safarova, who had already qualified for the WTA Finals doubles with partner Bethanie Mattek-Sands, will make her debut in the tournament after a standout year where she reached the final of the French Open.

She also won the Australian Open and French Open doubles titles with the American.

From Online Betting, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling option.

World number one Serena Williams, who narrowly missed out on a rare calendar Grand Slam, decided earlier this month that she would not be defending her WTA Finals title, citing the need to allow her body to heal.

Safarova joins Simona Halep, Garbine Muguruza, Maria Sharapova, Petra Kvitova, Agnieszka Radwanska, Angelique Kerber and Flavia Pennetta in the Singapore singles field.

“I am really excited to qualify for the WTA Finals for the first time,” Safarova said.” It has been a dream year and to be one of the eight qualifiers in singles and also compete in the doubles is something that makes me very proud.

“There have already been so many highlights this year, and I hope to finish it playing some more great tennis in front of the amazing Singapore crowd.”

Pennetta is also set to make her maiden appearance in singles at the championships. The reigning US Open champion decided against retiring following her New York victory in order to give herself the opportunity to play in Singapore for the very first time.

“Qualifying for the WTA Finals is a dream come true and the perfect way to end to an amazing season for me,” Pennetta said.

“It will also be a wonderful way for me to say to say goodbye to tennis – it’s a spectacular stage to bow out on. Having won the WTA Finals before in doubles, I can’t wait to make my debut in singles.”

Timea Bacsinszky and Venus Williams will serve as the first and second alternates in the singles action respectively.

David Ferrer wins Malaysian Open

David Ferrer Check WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

David Ferrer beat his fellow Spaniard Feliciano Lopez 7-5 7-5 in the final of the Malaysian Open on Sunday to capture the 25th title of his career and his fourth this year.

The match on Sunday evening was tightly contested but Ferrer’s determination and deep forehands ultimately proved too much for Lopez.

“It was my best match of the tournament and my best performance here in Malaysia,” the world number eight said.

“I was consistent with my game and am happy with the victory. My serve was good today and it needed to be because Feliciano pressured me today

From Online Sportsbook, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling option.

Appearing in his 50th ATP career final, the 33-year-old Ferrer won the hard-fought match against his good friend and Davis Cup team mate to add the Malaysian title to his previous tournament wins this year in Doha, Rio and Acapulco.

“I feel very happy, because I have never played so well at this tournament,” said Ferrer, who was the top seed. “I played my best match of the week in this final, and my sensations after my elbow injury are now very good.”

Ferrer had not lost to Lopez since 2009 but his streak looked to be in danger of ending when he made a slow start and went down an early break.

But Ferrer quickly broke back and clinched the opening set when he broke second-seeded Lopez again in the 12th game. In the second set, Ferrer again made the vital break in the 12th game, sealing a straight-sets win.

“Feliciano is a good tennis player, but an even better person,” said Ferrer. “I wish him all the best for the rest of the season.”

Rogers Cup 2015

Novak Djokovic Check WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

The Rogers Cup continued Tuesday, with the women’s tournament in full swing after a rainy Monday in Toronto and the men battling it out in Montreal.

World No1 Novak Djokovic kicked off his bid for a fourth Canadian crown with a 6-3, 7-6 (6-4) second round win over a stubborn Thomaz Bellucci at the Rogers Cup on Tuesday.

Bellucci, with just one win in five visits to Canada and coming off a first-round loss at Washington, appeared to be the perfect opponent for Djokovic to launch his buildup to the US Open but provided a stiff test for the Serb.

Djokovic is the clear favorite at the tournament. Djokovic won the tournament in 2007 and 2012.

Outside of Djokovic, the biggest story on the men’s side was the upset of No. 12 Kevin Anderson, who bowed out against Lukas Rosol 7-6, 7-6 in a hotly contested match.

Tomorrow’s matches will feature more big names, with No. 3 Stan Wawrinka, No. 5 Tomas Berdych, No. 6 Marin Cilic, No. 7 Rafael Nadal and No. 10 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga all in action.

Tennis Australia wants Davis Cup return for player

Davis Cup Check WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

The 22-year-old, arrested in Miami last week after an incident at a hotel, was omitted from the squad after a dispute.

Tennis Australia says it will reach out to Bernard Tomic in the next week or so to “clear the air” and hopes to have him back on-side for September’s Davis Cup semi-final.

From Online Sportsbook, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling options

TA president Steve Healy said: “We think Tomic’s criticisms are unjustified – he needs to hear that. He needs to get some detail and we want to bring him back into the fold.

“I think the important thing to understand is he’s had fantastic support from Tennis Australia and we want him to understand and appreciate that and then welcome him back into Davis Cup.”

After losing to Novak Djokovic in the third round at Wimbledon earlier this month, Tomic criticised Tennis Australia, accusing them of neglecting his and his sister’s development and claiming that the relationship changed after he had hip surgery last year.

Tomic said at the time: “I didn’t get one phone call from Tennis Australia, Can we help you, Bernard? Can we do this? Do you need something? You know, Can we give you something?”

Last week, Tennis Australia issued an apology after describing Tomic’s Hall of Fame championships clash with compatriot John-Patrick Smith in Newport, USA, as a “Hall of Shame” match.

Tennis Playing Styles

Tennis PlayerCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

There are different styles to play tennis, which style you use depends on your skills, personality, and possibly the court surface you play on most frequently.

Most coaches categorize players into four different playing styles:

  1. Serve and volleyer:

Relies on the serve to help dictate the point. After the serve, explodes forward to the net, a serve and volleyer moves forward 20 to 40 percent more than a counterpuncher or an aggressive baseliner and about 20 percent more than an all-court placer Functional flexibility is very important to the serve and volleyer because is required to get very low to the ground dozens of times throughout the match.

 

  1. Aggressive baseliner

Is more comfortable hitting groundstrokes but is also looking to put pressure on his opponent by hitting hard, aggressive strokes. This player’s goal is to move less than the counterpuncher, and he prefers to move inside the court and take balls earlier to reduce the opponent’s time between strokes.

 

From Online Sportsbook, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling options

 

  1. Counterpuncher

Chase down every ball and make sure the opponent has to hit many balls each rally to win any points.This game style is based on great side-to-side movement and stroke consistency.The counterpuncher moves laterally 60 to 80 percent of the time.

 

  1. All-court player

looks to be aggressive when hitting groundstrokes but is also happy to follow aggressive shots to the net to finish points. All shots, from serves to groundstrokes to volleys, require equal attention in training. In addition, significant time should be spent on the transition game, training for shots that help the all-court player get to the net.
