“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. Can the Ninjafed make a successful return? Roger Federer gestures to the spectators before hitting signed tennis balls into the stands during the 2019 Hopman Cup. (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.

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.

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.

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.

WATCH: Nick Kyrgios Takes a Dig at Novak Djokovic by Mocking His ‘Cringeworthy’ Celebration


The 2015 Australian Open quarterfinalist Nick Kyrgios got knocked out of the season’s first Grand Slam event, losing to Austrian star Dominic Thiem in the third round. Nonetheless, the Australian player entertained fans thoroughly during his short stint at the Australian Open this year.   After his exit from the singles category, Nick took part in the doubles event too. He partnered with compatriot and friend, Thanasi Kokkinakis. They won their initial match against Lloyd Harris and Julian Knowle in straight sets. However, they lost their second-round match today.  Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, February 12, 2021 Australia’s Nick Kyrgios reacts during his third round match against Austria’s Dominic Thiem REUTERS/Jaimi JoyKyrgios mocks Novak Djokovic’s celebration at Australian Open 2021 As the players stepped out onto the court today, Nick continued his love-hate affair with Djokovic. Upon arriving on the court, Kyrgios was seen mocking Novak’s ‘cringeworthy’ celebration, which he does after he wins his match. Both players have continued their war of words during the tournament this year. Nick has termed Novak a ‘tool’ and even went as far as terming him a ‘strange cat’.  Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, February 8, 2021 Serbia’s Novak Djokovic celebrates winning his first round match against France’s Jeremy Chardy REUTERS/Loren ElliottDjokovic even stated that he doesn’t respect Kyrgios off the tennis court, to which the Australian star took offense. During the pandemic, Novak organized an exhibition tournament, which drew criticism due to the timing at which it was conducted. Kyrgios at that time voiced his opinion, disagreeing heavily with the Serbian superstar.  Reflecting back to the Australian Open 2021, Djokovic won his third-round match against Taylor Fritz on Friday. During the match, he tore his muscle close to his rib cage. After solidifying an initial two-set lead, the American tennis player came back into the match, taking advantage of the Serb’s condition.  However, Djokovic, being the player he is, found a way to shrug off his pain and recorded the win eventually, stepping up his game in the deciding set. He will take on Canada’s Milos Raonic in the fourth-round later today.  ALSO READ- WATCH: Nick Kyrgios Imitates Stefanos Tsitsipas’ Celebration at Australian Open 2021

“Makes Me Calm and Confident”: Serena Williams Opens Up on Sister Venus’ Support at Australian Open 2021


Slam Queen Serena Williams has opened up about how she draws inspiration from elder sister Venus Williams’ presence in the stands when she is battling it out on the court. The elder Williams was spotted willing her younger sibling on as she fought off a determined challenge from World Number 7 Aryna Sabalenka on Sunday. Williams received support from sister Venus Williams from the stands at the Australian Open on Sunday After losing the opening set in the highly anticipated pre-quarters clash, the Belarussian stormed back into contention after breezing through the second. However, bringing all her experience to the fore, the 23-time Grand Slam champion recovered to take the final set and the match 64, 2-6, 6-4. Speaking to reporters after sealing a berth in the final eight, Serena revealed that the presence of her sister brings a calming influence to her game and gives her the belief to come out of tight corners in a contest. The 39-year-old added that Venus’ voice is, perhaps, the only ones she actually hears in play and it has the power to help through difficult phases in a match. Serena Williams says Venus Williams’ voice is one of the only ones she hears in play “I know when I hear her voice, it makes me calm and confident,” Serena said, adding, “There’s just something about it that makes me feel really good.” A year older than Serena, at 40, Venus fell to a straight-set defeat to Sara Errani in the second round after recording an impressive 7-5 6-2 win over Kirsten Flipkens in her opening tie. Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, February 14, 2021 Serena Williams of the U.S. in action during her fourth round match against Belarus’ Aryna Sabalenka REUTERS/Asanka Brendon RatnayakeHowever, putting aside the disappointment of her exit in a tournament she has never won in numerous attempts, Venus put her lung power to good use from her stands as she willed her sister on during the tricky clash against Sabalenka. The elder Williams came close to lifting the title in 2017 but ran into her in-form sibling who beat her hands down to win her 7th Australian Open title and her career’s 23rd, going past Steffi Graf’s haul of 22. Serena is gunning to end her 3-year wait to add to her Grand Slam tally, which would get her level with the legendary Margaret Court’s career Grand Slam haul of 24, the highest across the men’s and women’s fields. The 39-year-old has looked unstoppable, so far, and even when she was pushed to a corner as happened during the Sabalenka clash on Sunday, she summoned her inner strength to come out on the winning side.
