Tennis: Curious reason causes delay

Curious delay at the WTA tournament in Guadalajara, Mexico:

Before the tennis match between Petra Kvitova (Czech Republic) and Bernarda Pera (USA) on Monday evening (local time), bees occupied the chair of referee Marija Cicak.

Because of the uninvited guests, the game started about 90 minutes late. Kvitova won the match 6:3, 7:5.

Tennis: When Tsonga compares to Federer and Nadal

While Roger Federer has just retired after a very emotional last match, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Gilles Simon have also left the ATP circuit this year. Asked about his relationship with Simon, Tsonga explained that it was identical to the friendship between Federer and Nadal.

This year of tennis has been remarkable on several points. For Novak Djokovic, first, who could not play the US Open and the Australian Open because of his refusal to be vaccinated. But especially for Roger Federer who retired after twenty years at a very high level. Weighed down by his knee problems, the Swiss preferred to say stop. To say goodbye to his fans, Federer played a final match in the Laver Cup, in doubles, alongside Rafael Nadal. A huge symbol.

Retirement for Federer, but not only!
He too retired this season: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Even if he is far from having won as many titles as Roger Federer, the Frenchman will have had great moments on the ATP circuit, just like Gilles Simon, his great friend, who will bow out at the end of the year. And when Tsonga is asked about his friendship with Simon, he does not hesitate to compare him with Federer and Nadal.

Grand Slam tournaments want new content

They are the four most important tennis tournaments in the world, with the greatest tradition and the highest turnover.

On the fringes of the 135th Championships in Wimbledon, the Grand Slam bosses from Melbourne, Paris, London and New York sat down to discuss ways to expand their position. Above all, the joint marketing potential should be better exploited.

New “content” is to be produced, also under the keyword “Web 3.0”, for the makers of the Australian, French and US Open and Wimbledon “an important area with considerable growth for a new generation of fans”. In addition, new products with the logos of all four Grand Slam tournaments should be available in the future.

Grand Slam tournament support players
In the message sent out by the Wimbledon organizers of the All England Club, the bosses of the major events also referred to the Grand Slam scholarships. In the past five years, 116 players have been supported with a total of 3.58 million dollars – including finalist Ons Jabeur from Tunisia.

“That’s one of the reasons why I’m here today, why I win matches,” said the world number two before her final on Saturday (3:00 p.m. CEST / Sky) against Yelena Rybakina (Kazakhstan). Jabeur became the first player from Africa and the Arab world to reach a Grand Slam final. In the semifinals she defeated the German Tatjana Maria in three sets.

Wimbledon final: Excitement keeps Kyrgios from sleeping

Rafael Nadal’s withdrawal and his entry into his first Grand Slam final robbed Nick Kyrgios of his sleep. “I probably only slept for an hour, also because of the excitement and everything,” said the Australian on Friday at Wimbledon: “I was so scared, I was so nervous, and normally I never feel nervous.”

Kyrgios (27) will play the first major final of his career against Novak Djokovic (Serbia) or Cameron Norrie (Great Britain) at the All England Club on Sunday. Friday’s semi-final against Nadal was canceled because the Spaniard didn’t compete after suffering an abdominal muscle injury. Not necessarily an advantage for Kyrgios, as he explained.

“Of course you want these matches in a Grand Slam,” he said. He now has to do without the adrenaline before the final: “But that’s okay. I see it positively. I can rest my body a little. It’s not bad to go in fresh.” In the previous rounds, Kyrgios had suffered from shoulder problems.

The restlessness that kept him from sleeping must be gotten under control by the end of the game. At night he only thought about the match, said Kyrgios, “I imagined winning and losing, just everything.” He felt like an “uncontrolled ball of energy” and prescribed himself for the evening: “chamomile tea and more rest”.

Harmony Tan: ‘She scared me a little’

Harmony Tan, even impressed before the start of the meeting by Serena Williams, managed to beat the American champion, who was making her comeback after a year’s absence (7-5, 1-6, 7-6 [10-7] ). The “greatest victory” of his career.

“Tell us your feelings…
It was complicated at first. When the draw came out, everyone was like, “Oh, you’re playing Serena Williams!” And suddenly, I cut off all social networks because there were so many messages… I didn’t want to pollute my head with that. I did very good training. Even if I still thought about it when I got up this morning (Tuesday). At the start of the match, I didn’t really believe it, I was playing a legend, and on the central at Wimbledon. And the more the match progressed, the more I believed in it. I started thinking to myself, “Maybe you can do this. Without really believing it. But I won and it’s the best victory of my career. It’s just amazing.

The female table

How does it feel to be in front of her?
It’s impressive. Before entering the court, I see her next to me, and it’s true that she scared me a little, because I had never seen her in person. Her stature, her presence… She is imposing! Even at the end, when we shook hands, I thought he was someone who impressed me. But on the court, I didn’t pay attention to her. I played a ball, not an opponent.

You had a well-defined game plan…
Yes, make her move as much as possible, while varying the heights on her forehand. And destabilize it with my game which is quite atypical.

What about playing on Center Court?
When I returned to the court, it was a very special atmosphere. I had never felt this elsewhere. The public is quite close to us, it’s nice. Almost mystical. It didn’t tense me up, because when the audience is close enough, it doesn’t feel like the court is very big.

When you were down 5-7, 6-1, 3-1, what made you manage to come back?
I felt that she too was beginning to tense. She passed a little less first balls. And I hung on.

“Playing at 40, for a woman, is incredible! »

How did you feel after the match was won?
I realized, without really realizing. I raised my arms, unsure. It was when I saw my box in joy that I understood!

Can this victory act as a click?
It’s very important, but it’s not the goal of a career. It’s only a first round of Grand Slam, you have to go as far as possible.

Do you think you have revealed yourself? We saw you more expansive than usual…
It is true that I expressed myself a lot in relation to my character. Normally, I never express myself. It’s the atmosphere, all that pushed me. Even though the audience supported Serena, it didn’t bother me. When I play, I’m a lot in my bubble, I watch people in my box.

Which Serena did you expect?
In any case, I felt her quite nervous at first. And the more the match progressed, the better she felt. But she was tired at the end. Frankly, even though she hasn’t played a game for a year, she is still playing very well. Playing at 40, for a woman, is incredible! I admire him. She is an icon of women’s tennis. He was not an idol. When I was younger, I admired Justine Henin or Li Na more. My idol was Barty, but she stopped.

Do you like the lawn?
This is my first season on grass. I find it very pleasant. I didn’t know I could play well on it!”

Djokovic is not allowed to go to the US Open

As the 35-year-old said at a press conference, he is not allowed to take part in the US Open due to his refusal to be vaccinated in the event of a continued ban on entry into the USA.

“True, as of today, I am not allowed to enter the States under these circumstances. I’m aware of that,” said Djokovic and added: “I can only wait and see. I would love to travel to the United States, but as it stands, that’s not possible. There’s not much more I can do. It’s really up to the US government to make a decision on whether or not to allow unvaccinated people into the country.

The obligation to test before entering the USA has recently been abolished, but with a few exceptions a vaccination against Corona is still a prerequisite for entering the USA.

Djokovic categorically rejects vaccination
When asked by a journalist whether the vaccination was out of the question for him, the third in the world rankings confirmed this with a smile on his lips.

At the beginning of the year, the Serb had to skip the Australia Open because of his refusal to vaccinate. Djokovic also missed the tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami.

Since Djokovic is apparently unable to attend the US Open, which begins on August 29, Wimbledon is now “an extra motivation”.

Because of Russia: Tough demand from ex-tennis star

From the point of view of the Ukrainian ex-professional Sergei Stachowski, the Wimbledon exclusion of Russian and Belarusian players goes beyond the meaning of a symbolic gesture.

“It goes against the system. Sport is nothing but Russian propaganda,” Stachowski said shortly before the start of the world’s most important tennis tournament in an interview with the Süddeutsche Zeitung: “Russians in sports should be banned at every level.”

The 36-year-old, who ended his career at the end of January after the Australian Open a few weeks before Russia attacked Ukraine, explains his uncompromising attitude with a lack of clear statements from Russian athletes.

Stachowski: “Will be slaughtered, murdered”
Stachowski said: “No one has really made their stance clear. I don’t want to punish the affected players, even if I don’t think they are doing enough to clearly distinguish themselves. I want government punishment. The government seeks and projects success through sport.”

After the war broke out, the numerous calls by Russian professionals to end the war in Stachowski’s home country were too weak for the family man without naming the aggressor: “If Ukraine stops shooting, we will be slaughtered, murdered, Ukraine’s existence will be wiped out Stop the shelling and it would be over.”

For this reason, Stachowski cannot understand criticism from former colleagues such as Spain’s top star Rafael Nadal about the Wimbledon decisions: “Nothing will change as long as nobody clearly tells the Russian professionals. I’m happy that Russian and Belarusian professionals were excluded .”

The four-time ATP tournament winner classifies the attitude of the Wimbledon organizers as correspondingly important. “It’s encouraging what signals Wimbledon is sending to Ukraine. Nothing should be more important than human life – Wimbledon makes that clear.”

Once again, the venerable club in London stood out from everyday business: “Wimbledon showed, and it was always the case, that it is bigger than all the players. Wimbledon always leads the way in terms of fairness and modernity. Yet it remains true to its tradition, they give value to tradition. Wimbledon combines aristocracy and morality.”

Preparation for Wimbledon: Nadal admits it, he took a shot of old

A few days before playing Wimbledon, Rafael Nadal continues his preparation. After playing Roland-Garros under injections, the Spaniard hopes to live a quieter London fortnight. To begin with, Nadal refused to participate in the Queen’s tournament, explaining that he “can’t manage to play as many matches” as before.

At 36, Rafael Nadal is currently having the best season of his career. Winner of the Australian Open and Roland-Garros, the Majorcan achieved what he had never done before: winning the first two Grand Slams of the year. Before appearing at Wimbledon, the Nadal clan is confident of achieving the calendar Grand Slam. “It is a realistic objective, for the moment he is the only one who can achieve it this year. It is the first time in his career that he is able to achieve this, but we see it as something far away, he is halfway there.

So far, he’s not losing sleep over it. As a team, there are few things that keep us up at night and this is not one of them. We have to take it little by little, it’s not something we talk about, it’s not a priority objective, even if we are not going to give it up, “explains Carlos Moya, Nadal’s coach, in remarks relayed by We Love Tennis. But before playing the English fortnight, there is always an unknown factor: his state of form.

Federer’s fall continues, terrible news will come

Absent from the tennis courts since his quarter-final loss at Wimbledon, Roger Federer is losing his last points in the ATP rankings. This Monday, the Swiss is in 96th place, just behind his compatriot Henri Laaksonen. But the descent should continue in the coming weeks. After Wimbledon, the former world number one will no longer be ranked.

The golden age of Swiss tennis seems to be over now. For years, Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka have proudly represented the Swiss people, whether at the Olympic Games, during the Grand Slam or ATP tournaments. Between them, they have accumulated 23 Major titles, including 20 won by the Maestro. But now 40 years old, Federer has not lifted a single trophy since the Basel tournament in 2019. Increasingly handicapped by knee pain, the Swiss is at the twilight of his long career.

To end his career in style, he decided to go through the operation box after his quarter-final loss at Wimbledon against Hubert Hurkacz in July 2021. Since then, he has not been seen on a tennis court. The veteran continues his rehabilitation and remains quite discreet about the date of his return. Asked a few days ago about his season, Federer confirmed his participation for the Basel tournament at home, but also for the Laver Cup. A tournament he helped create. “We knew the recovery would take a long time, I’m very active, I go to the gym…
