One of the final stops on the road to the 2015 U.S. Open got underway north of the border with first-round play at the Rogers Cup in Montreal and Toronto.

Back in action the World No. 1 Novak Djokovic returns to a testing draw at the Coupe Rogers in Montreal, in the Quebec Province of Canada. Every time Novak Djokovic steps onto the court, he is the strong favorite to win no matter what. This perhaps again holds true as he gets ready for his charge at a 2nd US Open title in a month’s time.

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.

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.

  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.
