“It’s About Time”: Martina Navratilova Reflects on Roger Federer Confirming to Play in Dubai


It has been more than a year of inaction for Roger Federer now. He last played at the Australian Open 2020, where the Swiss maestro saw a straight-set loss against the Serbian Novak Djokovic. It was a tough series for him where he had to test his physical limits in 2 five-setters.  The 20-time grand slam champion later in the same year underwent double knee surgeries. All of this kept him away from the tennis court even after various countries lifted lockdown and the sport made a much-awaited return. However, the latest news is a big positive for the Federer camp. Martina Navratilova reflected on the comeback of Roger Federer The Swiss great will make his return to the ATP Tour at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha. Also, the latest development suggests that he can then play an ATP 500 tournament in nearby Dubai.  In a recent interview, a jovial Martina Navratilova learned the news and reacted with some humor. The 18-time women’s Grand Slam champion expressed, “I think he just wants to stay in Burj Al Arab again, but amazing! “It’s great to see Roger back, it’s about time for him sitting for over a year. So I’m glad he’s healthy and playing again.”  That he is coming back with an ATP 250 will ensure that he does not have to put too much pressure on himself for advancing deeper in the event. Prior to this, there were headlines that alleged Roger was fit enough to return for Australian Open 2021 and that he decided against it because of family reasons.

(Photo by Paul Kane/Getty Images)Well, it might be an ATP 250, but it has participation from some of the best ATP players. The 2020 US Open champion Dominic Thiem, the ATP Cup 2021 hero Andrey Rublev, and of course King Roger himself will stay in the highlight of the event. Apart from these names, there are six players from the Top-20 that’ll make the competition juicier. From Roger’s Swiss companion Stan Wawrinka to Roberto Bautista Agut, Gael Monfils, and others, it will not be an easy draw for the legendary 39-YO. However, the rusty Federer is also the mighty Federer, and he has always dominated all the aforementioned names with his stinging play. Also notably, his participation in the Dubai event will depend on how his body reacts to the Qatar event. The event will kick off on March 8th and the world will cheer for the arguable GOAT.

Jessica Pegula, daughter of Bills and Sabres owners, pulls off massive Australian Open upset


Jessica Pegula. (Photo by Andy Cheung/Getty Images)Packers: 3 moves Green Bay can make thanks to David Bakhtiari by Rucker Haringey Jessica Pegula continues her magical run at the 2021 Australian Open, knocking off the No. 5 player in the world to get to the quarterfinals.Jessica Pegula is one match away from getting to the 2021 Australian Open semifinals. The daughter of Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula just pulled off an incredible upset in the fourth round on Sunday, defeating the No. 5 player in the world Elina Svitolina 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 to reach the quarterfinals. Pegula faces No. 22 Jennifer Brady on Tuesday.This was the 26-year-old’s first victory over a top-10 opponent, as well as her first trip to a Grand Slam quarterfinal. It will be an All-American quarterfinal between Pegula and Brady on Tuesday.“It’s an opportunity for both of us,” said Pegula after defeating Svitolina on Sunday at Rod Laver. “I’m just happy I’m here. She’s been playing some good tennis, solidifying herself as a top player.”Perhaps the Bills’ success will continue to carry over to Pegula in Australia?The Bills are coming off their best season in Pegula’s lifetime. Buffalo had not hosted a playoff game since before she was born. While the Sabres continue to not do much of anything on the NHL side of things, the Bills were one win away from making their fifth trip to the Super Bowl in franchise history. The Bills should be one of the top five teams in the NFL again next season.While Pegula’s remarkable run in Melbourne may be coming to an end soon, being able to knock off the No. 5 player in the sport in such a high-profile event as the Australian Open is a huge accomplishment. Pegula is in her athletic prime and with one more victory over a ranked opponent, she will be one of the last four women’s tennis players remaining in this tournament.Pegula’s run in the 2021 Australian Open has been one of the better stories of the entire event.

“Ridiculous Numbers”: Daniil Medvedev Opens Up on Emulating the Big Three’s Grand Slam Feats


Russian tennis star Daniil Medvedev has expressed his awe over the Grand Slam accomplishments of the ‘Big Three’ – combined moniker for Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic. Speaking to reporters after progressing to the Australian Open quarters with a comfortable victory over Mackenzie McDonald of the United States on Monday, the Russian said that his mind boggles at the thought of how far he has to go to even come close to what the Big Three have achieved in Majors. Medvedev says he doesn’t see himself matching the Big Three’s Grand Slam feats The World Number 4 said that although it is fair to assume that he is one of the top players in the contemporary men’s circuit, he is yet to sink his teeth into Grand Slam glory and has a long way to go before he can even dream of rivaling the Big Three. Medvedev, who won back-to-back titles at the elite Rolex Paris Masters and the ATP Finals last year, said he grew up watching Pete Sampras set his own mark with 14 Grand Slam and felt the record will stand forever like the ones being set by soccer superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Tennis – ATP Cup – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, February 6, 2021 Russia’s Daniil Medvedev in action during his semi final match against Germany’s Alexander Zverev REUTERS/Kelly DefinaHowever, that was before Federer, Nadal and Djokovic unleashed themselves into the world of tennis and went about setting their own individual benchmarks. “Then the three guys came, they didn’t just beat the record (Sampras’ career haul in Grand Slams), they destroyed it,” Medvedev said. Putting some context into the argument of him emulating the Big Three’s incredible Grand Slam numbers, the Russian said he would have to win all the Majors over the next five years to cross the milestones set by Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic. Daniil Medvedev moved into the quarters of Australian Open on Monday Also, bringing his poor run at the French Open to the context, a smiling Medvedev said, “Roland-Garros, I’m not so good so far.” While not saying as much, the Russian conceded that reaching where the ‘Big Three’ have gone might prove to be a bridge too far for him. “Five years in a row I need to win every Slam against amazing opponents, five-set matches, not be injured. That’s ridiculous numbers,” said Medvedev, who took Russia to its maiden ATP Cup title this year. He settled the argument with a glowing tribute to the Big Three, calling them “the greatest players in the history of tennis.” READ MORE- Unorthodox but Effective: The Mystery Behind Daniil Medvedev’s Style of Play

Bianca Andreescu Pens Heartfelt Note For Fans Post Australian Open 2021 Exit


Canadian tennis star Bianca Andreescu has shared a heartwarming note on her Twitter handle, detailing her struggle with injuries and how blessed she feels to be competing again. The 2019 US Open champion, who returned to action at the Australian Open after a long injury lay-off, crashed out in the second round after falling to a straight-set defeat to Taiwanese Hsieh Su-wei. Andreescu crashed out in Round 2 of the Australian Open Her injury battle and eventual triumph came as a sobering experience for the Canadian who rose to dizzying heights in 2019, winning the US Open, Indian Wells, and Rogers Cup all in one year. Andreescu’s dream run helped her move 147 points in the WTA standings. However, just when she was poised for the next big leap in her career, injuries threatened to pull her down. A knee injury forced her to withdraw from the Shenzhen WTA event in the fall of 2019, and she had to rise from “many tears shed alone during sleepless nights” to return to the swing of things. Reflecting on her protracted injury battle, Andreescu wrote, “Life is the most amazing thing ever, yet, it can get so tough. That’s the beauty of it, they say.” Crediting all those who helped and supported her through the dark days, the Canadian said she’s “beyond grateful” to be back in play “after so long”.

In an inspiring message to her fans and followers, she wrote that one should never feel lonely in times of distress and turn their “struggles” and “heartbreak” into “something beautiful”. “For anyone struggling (if this resonates with you)…know that you’re not alone, you are loved and you matter,” Andreescu wrote. She said one should have the mindset not to feel weighed down by negativities all around and focus on what one can control. The Canadian said it always helps to draw strength and support from the loved ones when the chips are down. Speaking to reporters after her second-round exit at the Australian Open, Andreescu said the saddest part was that she gave it her all and yet finished on the losing side.

Novak Djokovic Fans Receive Positive News Amid Injury Concerns at Australian Open 2021


World No.1 Novak Djokovic had cast doubts over his further participation after his epic five-set third-round victory at the 2021 Australian Open. Djokovic suffered an abdominal muscle tear during the third set against Taylor Fritz, which hampered his movement. Post his third-round victory, Djokovic seemed dejected on having encountered a serious injury and was worried whether he would be able to recover timely. Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, Serbia’s Novak Djokovic during his third round match against Taylor Fritz of the U.S. REUTERS/Kelly DefinaDue to injury, Djokovic didn’t train on Saturday and raised doubts over competing in the next round. The defending champion underwent medical tests yesterday and waited for the reports before taking a decision. Novak Djokovic ready to compete However, in what can only be described as a magnificent development, Djokovic will play in his fourth-round match against the Canadian, Milos Raonic. After consulting the physiotherapists at the tournament, Djokovic was given the green light as they seemed optimistic about the minor injury. The physios felt confident that Djokovic could play tonight and would be at the receiving end of the best treatment possible to get ready for the match. Withdrawing from the tournament would have been devastating for Djokovic since he has won a record eight titles at the Australian Open. But having not practiced over the last two days, Djokovic will find it slightly tougher to battle against the hard-hitting Raonic. The duo has faced off 11 times against each other, with Djokovic having a flawless 11-0 head-to-head record. Djokovic last played against Raonic in the final of the 2020 Cincinnati Masters and won the match despite losing the opening set. Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, Serbia’s Novak Djokovic reacts during his third round match against Taylor Fritz of the U.S. REUTERS/Loren ElliottInterestingly, the duo locked horns in the quarterfinals of last year’s Australian Open, a match in which Djokovic triumphed in straight sets. However, it cannot be said whether Djokovic will be able to compete without any restriction to his movement. Nevertheless, the No.14 seed Raonic is at an advantage, of which he should extract the maximum benefit by returning well to break Djokovic’s serve.

“Hadn’t Reached My Peak”: Serena Williams Reflects on Her Tough Win Over Aryna Sabalenka at Australian Open 2021


Serena Williams had a tough victory over Aryna Sabalenka in the fourth round of Australian Open 2021. She reached a record-equalling 54th Grand Slam quarterfinal and is en route to a record-equaling 24th Grand Slam. In her post-match interview, Serena revealed how she handled big points and kept herself motivated to win. “I felt like even games that I lost, I was so close to winning. Not all games, but probably most of those games. I just needed to play better on the big points. “I knew that I could. I still hadn’t reached my peak. I was like, Okay, Serena, you got this, just keep going.” Serena Williams of the U.S. in action during her fourth-round match against Belarus’ Aryna Sabalenka. REUTERS/Loren ElliottSpeaking of her injury, Serena revealed that she was playing carefree for most of the match. Serena has been dealing with an Achilles injury for a while, and it was troubling her later in the 2020 season. “I do get a lot of balls back when I need to. Yeah, I didn’t think about my Achilles. It’s so good to not think about it…it’s been a problem actually since 2018, so…I just never want that problem again. It feels really good to just play and to run, to not feel that” Serena Williams vs Aryna Sabalenka: First Set goes Serena’s way Sabalenka started the match better than Serena. The Belarusian didn’t allow Serena any loose balls and quickly put the American under pressure. But Serena navigated her way through the tough games and put up her fight. At 3-3, there was the first breakpoint for Sabalenka, but she couldn’t convert it and Serena took the lead at 4-3. The first set was evenly poised, and both the players had great rallies. When Sabalenka was trailing at 5-4, she had a great rally against Serena where the American showed great defense. Serena saw her first breakpoint and set point at 5-4. But Serena needed a second opportunity to take the first set, 6-4. Woeful set for Serena Simply said, the second set was woeful for Serena Williams. She was broken in the first game itself. And with Sabalenka earning a second break, Serena found herself 3-0 down in the second set in just 17 minutes. Serena got a break back in the subsequent game to open her second set 1-3. But Serena’s first serve percentage dropped, and she failed to hold a third consecutive game and trailed 4-1. From there, Sabalenka quickly finished off the set, 6-2. Serena Williams seals her place in record-equaling Australian Open quarterfinal Serena massively improved in the third set. She fended off Sabalenka’s advances to take a 4-1 lead. But Sabalenka didn’t let it go and a blip from Serena saw Sabalenka level the match 4-4. Sabalenka was level with Serena in terms of winners and unforced errors. But trailing at 5-4, Sabalenka had a few unforced errors and Serena won the third set and match, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4.

“Probably Going to Smash Me”: Hsieh Su-wei Wary of Naomi Osaka Challenge at Australian Open 2021


High on belief and punching way above her weight in the women’s game, Hsieh Su-wei has opened up on her quarter-final meeting with World Number 3 Naomi Osaka at the Australian Open on Monday. The 71st-ranked player caused one of the biggest upsets of the tournament by dumping 2019 US Open champion Bianca Andreescu out of Melbourne Park and will have little to lose going into the last-eight tie. Osaka a “very good player”, says Hsieh Su-wei Speaking to reporters ahead of the showdown on Monday, Su-wei lavished praise on her Japanese opponent, calling her a “very good player”. Though struggling with her English, she left little doubt on how she rates her more illustrious and accomplished rival ahead of the last-eight battle. Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, February 10, 2021 Taiwan’s Su-Wei Hsieh in action during her second round match against Canada’s Bianca Andreescu REUTERS/Jaimi Joy“Anyone play her, they will get troubles,” was her short but loaded statement on her opponent’s game ahead of the quarter-final clash. However, she was quick to add that while Osaka will try to overwhelm her with her signature power tennis, she will focus on her strengths instead of worrying about her opponent. “She probably going to smash me on the court. I try to play my game, do my job, see what happens,” the Taiwanese said in her broken English. Hsieh Su-wei says she will back her strengths against Naomi Osaka in the QF While she out-muscled her opponents in previous rounds, the Japanese had to dig deep in her come-from-behind win over two-time Grand Slam champion and last year’s Australian Open finalist Garbine Muguruza on Sunday. Muguruza was up 5-3 and on match point in the deciding set when Osaka scripted a remarkable comeback story. Su-wei, on the other hand, had a comparatively easier ride into the last-eight on Valentine’s Day as she made short work of Marketa Vondrouska on the way to recording a 6-4, 6-2 win. As their head-to-head record bears evidence, the Japanese has not had it easy against Su-wei on hard courts. Osaka holds a 2-1 lead over the Taiwanese in three head-to-head meetings at hard-court events, with all matches going to three sets. Though unfancied, expect the Su-wei to give Osaka a run for her money as the two battle it out for a place in the last-four on Monday.

Djokovic’s Open injury mystery continues

Novak Djokovic has fuelled further scepticism over his fitness by refusing to confirm details of his mysterious abdominal injury after powering his way into the Australian Open quarter-finals.
The world No. 1 claimed after his third-round match that he had a torn abdominal muscle, putting his chances of snaring a ninth title at Melbourne Park this year in jeopardy.
He underwent an MRI scan and almost two days of treatment from medical staff but moved well in his fourth-round win over 14th seed Milos Raonic, which was completed in the early hours of Monday morning.
After the 7-6 (7-4) 4-6 6-1 6-4 victory, Djokovic said the only reason he has not already withdrawn from the Open is because it is a grand slam.
The 33-year-old said he is risking further physical damage by playing on and will take time off to recover after his tournament is complete.
But he was not forthcoming when asked about the extent of the injury.
“I understand that you want to know, but I really don’t want to get into it what it is,” Djokovic said.
“Yes, I did an MRI, I did everything.
“I know what it is, but I don’t want to talk about it now. I’m still in the tournament.”

Djokovic claimed his Open title defence was in jeopardy up until “a few hours” before his clash with Raonic, played in front of empty stands at Rod Laver Arena because of Victoria’s COVID-19 lockdown.
“I didn’t hit a tennis ball yesterday … I tried to use every single hour possible to recover and give myself at least a little bit of a chance to step on the court, which I have done,” Djokovic said.
“As I said on the court, if I’m part of any other tournament other than a grand slam, I definitely wouldn’t be playing.
“But it’s a grand slam. It matters a lot to me at this stage of my career, of course.
“I want to do everything possible in this very short amount of time to get on the court.”
The big-serving Raonic blasted 26 aces to Djokovic’s ten and there were some hurdles for the Serbian star to overcome as he let slip the only two break points of the first set and dropped the second.
But Djokovic powered through the third set to become only the second man after Roger Federer to win 300 grand slam matches.
It also continued his dominance in head-to-head battles with Raonic, improving his all-time record against the Canadian to 12-0.

Djokovic said he required “pills and medicaments and treatments and also some willpower” to push through the match.
“The level of the pain was bearable, so I could actually play, and it was kind of going on and off a little bit during the match,” he said.
“Certain stages of the match it was more, certain stages less.
“But I somehow managed to find a way and win, and that’s what matters the most.”
Djokovic will meet German sixth seed Alexander Zverev in the quarter-finals as he hunts a second career hat-trick of Open crowns.

Australian Open 2021 Day 7: Djokovic overcomes injury to beat Raonic, will face Zverev in quarterfinals; Simona Halep, Serena Williams and Osaka advance to last eight

Australian Open 2021 Day 7: World number one Novak Djokovic advanced to quarter-finals beating Milas Raonic 7-6(4), 4-6, 6-1, 6-4. The Serb came through a tough examination of his fitness to beat the Canadian powerhouse.
Djokovic, who suffered a side muscle during a five-set win against Taylor Fritz on Friday, show hints of discomfort on the way to becoming only the second player to reach 300 Grand Slam match wins.
Fourteenth seed Raonic had never previously taken a set off Djokovic in three previous Grand Slam meetings so when he snatched the second set a surprise looked possible.

But the Serb, bidding for a record-extending ninth title in Melbourne, responded by raising his game and improving his record over Raonic to 12-0.

Djokovic will now clash against seventh-ranked Germany’s Alexander Zverev for a place in the semi-finals.
Australia Open 2021: Simona Halep, Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka advance to quarterfinal
World No.2 Simona Halep has advanced to the quarterfinals of the Australian Open. She overpowered Iga Swiatek after losing the opening set. Halep came from behind to register 6-1, 6-4 victory against the Polish. The Romanian will next face Serena Williams in the quarterfinal round.
In other fixture, sixth-seeded Alexandar Zverev came out on top of D Lajovic after a scare in the second round. The German professional won the match 6-4, 7-6 and 6-3. The German got most of his first serves in and racked up 44 winners to dominate the 30-year-old Lajovic throughout the match.
After losing the first set, Lajovic came back strong and gave a tough fight in the second set as it went into the tie-breaker but his efforts went in vain as the German claimed it by 7-6(5). In the third set, Zverev claimed the match and cruised to the next round of the tournament. He will meet the winner of Djokovic vs Raonic match in the quarterfinal round.
Earlier today, Serena Williams has secured a place in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open 2021 after her win against seventh seed A Sabalenka. The 39-year-old veteran came back after losing the second set. The score ended 6-4, 2-6 and 6-4 in favour of 23 times Grand Slam champion.
Serena emerged triumphant in the first set and she displayed her trademark game to not give Sabalenka any chance in the first set. The American took the first set 6-4.
In the second set, Sabalenka managed to change her fortunes around and she gave Serena no respite. Sabalenka managed to gain a 5-1 lead in the second set and Serena faced an uphill task. In the end, Sabalenka managed to take the second set 6-2.
In the third and final set, Serena had managed to take a 4-2 lead, but Sabalenka came back strongly and the scoreline was levelled at 4-4. In the end, Serena managed to maintain her composure and she sailed into the quarter-finals.
The 39-year-old Serena needs one more major win to equal Margaret Court’s record Grand Slam tally. She has not added to her Grand Slam tally since beating her sister Venus in the Australian Open final in 2017.
Title favourite and 3rd seed Naomi Osaka also came back from the brink to defeat Gabrine Muguruza of Spain at the Australian Open 2021 after she shocked Osaka in 3 sets thriller. Osaka was down a match point in the 3rd set but pulled back to beat the 14th seed Spaniard 4-6, 6-4, 7-5 to make it to the Aus Open 2021 Quarterfinals.
Osaka will now take on giant killer Su-Wei Hsieh of Chinese Taipei in last 8 battle. The 35-year-old Hsieh has made it to the Aus Open Quarterfinals for the first time. The Japanese professional has gone on to win the title, every time she has reached quarter-finals of a Grand Slam.
In another contest, Su Wei Hsieh continued her dominating run in the Australian Open defeating 20th seed Marketa Vandrousova in straight sets. She will be next face Naomi Osaka in the quarter-final.
Meanwhile, A Karatsev has stunned 20th seeded Felix Auger Aliassime to enter the round 8 of the Australian Open 2021. He came back after straight-sets losses to win the thrilling five sets contest. The scorecard ended 3-6,1-6, 6-3, 6-3 and 6-4 in favour of the Russian.
