Spain is Always on David Ferrer's Mind

by JAMES HENRY

CINCINNATI – David Ferrer has represented his country in the Davis Cup international team competition in 27 matches across 17 ties since 2006.

He won a whopping 23 of those rubbers, most notably defeating Juan Martín del Potro in front of a Spanish home crowd during the final against Argentina in 2011. It truly was an epic encounter, lasting 4 hours and 46 minutes.

The big-serving Argentine, the 2009 U.S. Open champion, found his form in the second set, grabbing it in a tie-breaker. Then, after losing his serve early in the third set, he won five games in a row.

But Ferrer would not give up. As the match continued, he got stronger, eventually earning the victory: 6-2, 6-7 (2), 3-6, 6-4, 6-3.

With two additional wins by teammate Rafael Nadal, Spain claimed its fifth Davis Cup title, the third in four wildly successful years.

“You know, play for your country is different,” Ferrer told reporters after reaching his first semifinal at the Western & Southern Open, a prestigious Masters 1000 tournament, in Cincinnati.

Wimbledon Recap: Day 3

Just as we were celebrating Victoria Azarenka's return to winning, she loses. Her three set loss to Bojana Jovanovski was a reminder of just how hard top players work day in and day out to get the wins expected of them. Spend a few months off due to an injury and the setbacks are enormous. Vika came off court "pissed off" (her own words) that she'd lost and somewhat impatient to get back to her best.
                        
"I have to be [hard on myself]," Azarenka said. "I have to be realistic. I cannot sit here and say it's all great, because there's no moving forward from there. I'm going to be hard on myself just because I want to be better. ... I want to go back to practice like tomorrow, maybe even today. That's it... Im ready to work."
          
It's a good thing - compare her determined attitude to that of Sloane Stephens complacency and it explains why one of them is a Grand Slam winner and the other is fading out.

David Ferrer Faces $20,000 Fine for Pushing a Linesman

David Ferrer pushed a linesman during his quarter-final match against Tomas Berdych at the Australian Open and might have to pay a hefty $20,000 fine.  The fine would be for "unauthorized touching," which sounds really creepy, but is exactly what he did to the guy when he went to grab his towel off the chair.  I'm pretty sure the linesman didn't "authorize" that shove.  Check out the video below....

Battle of the Sexes: Which Gender Wins?

Here is a pretty awesome infographic comparing stats from this past Wimbledon such as: double faults, aces, unforced errors, etc, of the top 3 men to the top 3 women (although a bit dated because the top 3 in the men has now changed).  Who do you think will be the winner?  Check it out!

Who Would You Rather? Man Candy at the 2013 Western and Southern Open

It’s August. It’s hot.

And that means fans at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati can enjoy a bevy of shirtless professional tennis players’ bodies.

The tennis tournament boasts four stadiums: the 11,400-capacity Center Court, the 5,000-capcity Grandstand Court, the 4,000-capacity Court 3 and the 2,000-capacity Court 9.

But many fans know some of the best views are on the 12 other smaller courts used for early-round matches, as well practices.

There, just a few feet away, they can see their favorite male tennis players – who often are shirtless.  So the question begs (BEGS!!!) to be asked.....Who would YOU rather?

Wimbledon '13: Fashion Hits and Misses

I'm a little late to the party here (as usual) but this time it may actually be a good thing. Because I refuse to review people who have already lost, I won't be looking at the outfits of Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka or Ana Ivanovic this time around. Which means I have the chance to review some new faces. Should be fun... silver linings, eh?

We are, however, starting off with a familiar face... Serena Williams.
