Federer vs Simon – 08.07.2015

Federer vs SimonRoger Federer takes on Gilles Simon at the Wimbledon quarter-finals!

Quarter-finals today, at Wimbledon Center Court, and will be a delight for the fans because it will be an important meeting between the No. 2 seeded tennis man, Roger Federer and Gilles Simon, ranked No. 13, a pretty valuable encounter.

The 17 times Grand Slam winner, seven times Wimbledons champion, the 33 years old, father of four, having his idol Stefan Edberg as coach, Roger Federer finds himself once again, at Wimbledon, for the 13th time in his career. He started a great tournament this year, in great shape, prepared for everything and maybe keen to improve his scores for the ATP ranking, I`m not sure if he`s very confortable on the second place, behind Djokovic, even he would have a lot to catch up, considering the diffrence of nearly 4000 points between the two.

The Swiss would deserve the first place, as he`s a very well-schooled player, decent, hard working and talented either, he`s a perfect player, some would say. This would be the eighth trophy at Wimbledon, for Federer, if he would get into the final and win it. He recently declared that he had an extra week to prepare for the match and he`s quite pleased, he feels he`s well prepared for the challenge. His last match was against the Spaniard, Roberto Bautista Agut, at Centre Court, on Monday, when Federer managed to finish the game in an hour and 25 minutes by 6-2,6-2,6-3.

As for Simon Gilles, he dismissed Nicolas Almagro, Blaz Kavcic, his compatriot Gael Monfils and Berdych in the early rounds to get here, in quarter-finals. It will be he`s first time at this level at the All England Club and also the first time he meets Federer in this competition and the third time they meet in a grand slam tournament, as they formerly met for seven times, Federer winning five of them, but none of those happened on grass surface.

The obvious favourite for this match is Roger Federer, it wpould be hard to imagine Gilles Simon really challenging a player like Federer, even if it`s true that he may be capable. We also need to consider the fact that Federer is a master on grass, while Simon is more a hard surface player.

Shamrock Rovers vs Niederkorn – 07.07.2015

Shamrock Rovers vs NiederkornShamrock Rovers facing FC Progrès Niedercorn, Europa League Qualifiers!

We have arrived at the Europa League qualifiers and for today we have FC Progres Niedercorn from Luxembourg and on the other side will see Shamrock Rovers, two teams who haven` t been very present in Europa League, in the last years, meaning 33 for Niedercorn and only 3 for the Irish team. It`s a big difference from that point of view but if we consider that both sides finished fourth in their respective domestic leagues and we`re talking about last season, it could be that both sides have equal shots to qualify in Europa League, this campaign. They`re playing tonight, the second-leg, as in the first-leg they`ve recorded a draw and it seemed to me it was a fair result.

The spot in Europa League, will be disputed at the Tallaght Stadium, in Dublin, at 20:00. The Irish have to score this time if they want to advance into the next round. In the first-leg against Niedercorn, they`ve started in a strong fashion and along the match they`ve created chances to score and maybe even win the game, but it wasn`t enough.

They`ve also created some chances for opponents either, leaving some passes loose at a certain point, surprisingly from the captain itself, Pat Cregg and some other errors or unlucky shots from the Rovers, did happened. For the match tonight, they`ve had a whole week to preapare a better approach and maybe a bit more focused. Progres instead, have got covered the second half of the game, they have returned invigorated and created some chances too, but the same story like the Rovers, the match finished by 0-0.

As for the performances of both sides, we must say Shamrock Rovers won the League of Ireland trophy for 17 times and have a history in the European competition, as domestic competition. On the other hand, Progres have only won 4 of their domestic Luxembourg Cup and is the 6th time they participate at the European qualifiers.

It will be difficult task for the visitors to play against their hosts, in Dublin, considering Shamrock is considered favourite for the match tonight, but it`s their only chance to qualify in this competition.

Serena Williams vs Venus Williams – Tennis – 06.07.2015

Serena WilliamsSerena Williams meets Venus Williams, tricky encounter between champion sisters!

It`s not always easy to get passed a game not even for the Worlds No.1 Serena Williams, a good example is the match against the british Heather Watson, ranked 59th WTA. Serena needed three whole sets to finish the game in her favour and qualify in the eight-finals at Wimbledon.

As a result, Serena Williams will meet her sister Venus Williams, in the fourth round, today, at the Wimbledon Center Court. It`s almost twenty years since the two sisters are present in the history of tennis and all this years they`ve showed us great passion and determination, interesting games filled with emotions for the fans of tennis. On the other hand we have to mention that the last few years, was Serena to taste the glory, leaving her older sister Venus, No. 16-seeded unlike Serena, No.1-seeded, in her shadow for years. There`s also the fact that Venus suffers of the autoimmune deficiency Sjogren’s Syndrome, that could have also contributed to her unsuccesful progress.

Both sisters were taught to play tennis by their own father, in California and it`s been an emotional moment seeing his daughters playing against each other,ever since. However, the two never met again, playing a match, since 2009 at this very tournament, at Wimbledon. Since U.S. Open in 2001 to 2003 Wimbledon, the sisters participated in six all-in-the-family Grand Slam finals and before this, the only major title match disputed between sisters, was at the very first Wimbledon women`s final in 1884, when Maud Watson defeated her younger sister, Lillian.

It`s a tricky, emotional and perhaps dramatic, encounter today, one would be tempted to consider Serena as the favourite, in the match today, but Venus also has great chances to get back on track.

John Higgins vs Martin Gould – Snooker – 04.07.2015

John Higgins SnookerJohn Higgins versus Martin Gould, Australians Godfield Open Final!

Martin Gould has won the semi-final against the very well known Maguire, highly ranked but unlucky this round and as a result he will meet John Higgins today in the final of the Australian Goldfields Open,one of the living legends of snooker. It`s a great achievment for Gould and now is his chance to prove he deserves it.

However it seems to be a great “fixture” between the two, Gould plays excellent snooker and about Higgins we don`t need to say much, we already know he`s World Champion and not once, so that says it all.

Martin Gould, 33 years old, started the last four clash very cinfident with breaks of 54, 82 and 87 which contributed to establish an early 3-0 lead as he began to capitalised on a mixture of poor shape and lack of fortune, for Maguire and got even worse when he tryed to get out of a snooker in the fourth frame, fact that made him leave the arena for a few moments, to calm down. The five-time winner of the event, did manage to avoid the whitewash but obiously wasn`t enough.

Higgins also had to reverse the same scorline but he had no problems in doing it and managed to stunn his opponent, that is certainly not a surprise if we`re speaking of the scotish player and coach

Gould has been working hard all this week and in general, along his coach Steve Feeney for the new campaign. The experience and knowledge Steve Feeney surely worked for Stuart Bingham, who was the new World Champion.

Higgins is aiming for his 27th ranking event trophy, that would equal Ronnie O`Sullivan in the all-time list. That would be a great for Higgins, also because as we saw, over the years, between him and O`Sullivan there were some teasing. For the Australian final today, John Higgins is the indisputable favourite for the title. Good luck to them!

Chile vs Argentina – 04.07.2015

ArgentinaChile facing Argentina at the Copa America Finals!

Today, Saturday 04.07.2015, at Estadio Nacional, Santiago, the champion of Copa America, will be decided, between the tournaments hosts Chile and favourites Argentina. Two of the South America„s finest, top national teams, who are eagerly fighting to get their hands on the trophy, a trophy which Argentina never took again since 1993 and Chile, never had the chance to lift it up, ever in the Championship`s history.

Chile has the chance, this year, to achieve what they have dreamed about for so long, to win Copa America. This time they started the campaign in a great fashion, showing us that Chile has changed, they`re more determined, more motivated and more prepared than ever. So this is how, they`ve made it in the finals.

It`s an important moment for the fans to be supportive, the Chileans need an extra boost of confidence and support, after all they have to face Argentina, which isn`t an easy task at all. Another thing they need, is too really use all the resources they have and they didn`t use until now, not at their best, at least, like Alexis Sanchez, we know he can do even better and now would be the opportune moment to do it. That could go for Arturo Vidal as well.

Argentina is coming into the game after a crushing victory by 6-1 against Paraguay, they most certainly have all the confidence they need to see themselves winners of the Championship. Besides that, as I`ve always reminded you, they have some very important players, like Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria, Javier Pastore and others and each and every one of these players really contributed to the team`s results, since the tournament begun.

Chile is the top scorer of the Championship, right now, but even so, if they do not improve or secure, in a certain way, their defense and it`s very probable they won`t, in a manner which Messi or Di Maria and their colleagues could not overcome or pass through, they have great chances to be torn to shreds, just like Paraguay.

Djokovic vs Tomic – 03.07.2015

Novak DjokovicNovak Djokovic facing youngster Bernardo Tomic, Wimbledon third round.

Novak Djokovic, the Worlds No. 1 tennis player, has already won eight times the Grand Slam title, two times Wimbledon in 2011 and 2014 and it had a great start in this years tournament at the Australin Open, he`s set on getting great results, this year too. A very important role in his career has most certainly had former Wimbledon Champion Boris Becker and Marian Vajda, in coaching Djokovic.

Djokovic has recently won the game against Philipp Kohlschreiber, which lasted a bit over two hours of great effort from both sides. We are already used to see Djokovic making very little mistakes, mastering very accurately his serves and continues to show performance like a second nature. He proves every time he`s on the game surface, that he deserves the place he`s in and thet he`s the best player of the moment . He`s getting at the very least 65-68% of his first server, 57% of his second serve, 74 winners, 20 aces and made 34 unforced errors. It seems he`s playing after the “keep it nice and simple” saying.

Today he`s meeting Tomic Bernard, in the third round of the tournament, a very promising young player, who`s coming after a five set on victories, he`s getting pretty much the same numbers as Djokovic in matter of serves, aces, winners and errors. Tomic withstood 21 aces in his last match against Pierre-Hugues Herbert in a 7-6(3), 6-4, 7-6(5) win. He made quite an impression and he continues to climb the rankings in ATP. He seems very confident about the match against Djokovic, declaring that he could really win over Djokovic, it`s not really a surprise his enthusiasm, considering Djokovic himself declared that is having a difficult match ahead, against Tomic, he knows Tomic loves playing on grass and he`s good at it.

Now! As I said earlier, Bernardo Tomic may be a great youngster, but for now, in my opinion, it`s still early for him to overcome Djokovic, maybe in couple of years. Tonight you should put your bets on Djokovic.

Rafael Nadal vs Dustin Brown – 02.07.2015

Rafael Nadal vs Dustin BrownRafael Nadal against Dustin Brown, Wimbledon second round.

One of the most popular tennis player, in the last years, would be without a doubt, Rafael Nadal. Original from Mallorca, has won the Wimbledon title back in 2008, for the first time and in 2010 for the second time. After that, the Spaniard, suffered early eliminations and in 2014 had some serious health problems, like appendicitis and wrist problems. He seems invigorated now, having recovered quite well.

After the last disappointment at Roland Garos, last month, when he was sent off in the quarter-finals, he really needs a great boost of confidence and he really needs to get back on track after this difficult period in his career. Even if it`s yet early in the tournament, we may say he started quite well the Wimbledon Championship, maybe the simple fact of stepping on to grass again, made him feel refreshed.

He did well against Thomaz Bellucci, a 27 left-handed from Brazil, who lost the match in Nadal`s favour but the game itself had an important role for Nadal, in the restoration of his confidence and winning mentality. He hopes for a more “consistent and solid” performance, he declared.

Today Nadal will meet he`s old tricky opponent, Dustin Brown, who defeated him last June in Germany, Halle. Nadal knows Brown can create him problems playing on grass, he knows it`s his favourite surface. Brown represented Jamaica till 2010, since then representing Germany. Browns strong serve and volley, worked very well till now, he`s known for his technique of “first strike”, agressive and pressuring style. This tactic has proven, in the past, to be very efficient against Nadal in the past, especially if we consider the fact that they are playing on grass.

It will be an interesting match to see, Nadal most certainly doesn`t take this encounter lightly having a strong opponent today, who created him problems in winning, in the past.
