IT IS GORGEOUS TIME FOR GOERGES


LONG TIME NO SEE, how do you do, Im doing some observation lately on tennis blog especially on women side. why, haha it is because of a girl call Goerges has made into tennis radar. Honestly i thinks it is because she beat current world number twice in fortnight. just imagine the reception if the world number one is Williams or Clijsters, how big she would be..............but still she got the attention even though it just Wozniacki's the holder.

never mind what i'm gonna say it not about her achievement because people has talk about much, people do hail her so much. some has assume as a fav at RG and some said she is future number one.

no i not said that she can't win one or can' be on the top, she would if she capable. if i'm not mistaken people had said almost the same thing to Wozzy but then they keep slammed her because her failure. i wonder if someday she be the world number one and still slamless would she receive the same fate like Safina, JJ and Wozzy. Let pray that would not happen to her. i mean praying the best for her, not something like slamless or failure as a top player.

Indeed i'm prefer player like Kuznetsova never been on top but won 2 Slam titles, still behind the radar, but i'm sure she not bother by that. Whatever it is she still a multiple slam champion and more likely to be inducted to Hall Of Fame. People can say anything but it doe not change the fact and the fate of a tennis player.

CAN SHARAPOVA GO DEEPER IN WORLD RANKING

Maria Sharapova Has Eye on More Success This Season

After playing in the Australian Open this year, Sharapova had to deal with a virus that kept her out of tournament play until late March.

Since coming back, however, Sharapova has had impressive back-to-back showings in the Indian Wells Masters event, where she reached the semifinals and the finals of the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami.

Even though Maria Sharapova fell to Victoria Azarenka in the Sony Ericsson finals in Miami this weekend, her recent performance has been strong enough to see her rise in the WTA rankings.

For the first time in over two years, the Russian-born Sharapova is back in the Top 10. A big reason for her surge is that she appears to be finally healthy.

Now that she's starting to show the form that once made her the world's No. 1 tennis player, Sharapova may finally be back.

Could a French Open win come this season?

Paul Higham of Sky Sports says that the 23-year-old Grand Slam tournament in mind. Higham writes, "...another aim was to win the French Open - the only grand slam title to so far evade her grasp and on a surface that has not seemed to suit her game over the years."

Sharapova's game is trending upwards. Now that she's playing healthy, building momentum and ranked in the Top 10, this could be the year she finally makes a breakthrough in the clay courts of the French Open.

She's so close to that career Grand Slam, she can smell it.

INJURED DJOKOVIC OUT OF MONTE CARLO

World No. 2 Novak Djokovic has withdrawn from next week’s Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters due to a knee injury. Following back-to-back ATP World Tour Masters 1000 victories in Indian Wells and Miami, the Serb said that he would not contest the opening tournament of the European clay-court swing, which begins Sunday. Djokovic has reached the Monte-Carlo semi-finals three consecutive years, including 2009, when he pushed Rafael Nadal to three sets in the final.

Top seed and World No. 1 Nadal, who finished runner-up to Djokovic in Indian Wells and Miami, will be chasing a record seventh consecutive title in Monte-Carlo and a 19th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 crown. Three-time finalist Roger Federer seeks his first Monte-Carlo title and first clay-court title since he won Roland Garros in 2009.

Djokovic said on his official website: "It is a very sad moment not only for this tournament and my fans, but also for myself. This is my favourite tournament and one of my two home events. Monte Carlo is where I spend most of my time away from the circuit and this is my club where I practise and train all year long. Unfortunately I had to take this decision to withdraw and I would like to thank Tournament Director Zeljko Franulovic for his understanding and support."

Elaborating further on his Facebook page, Djokovic said: "This time I had to prioritise my health and rest of the season, for which I have high ambitions. I believe I will be recovered and ready for upcoming events on clay courts."
