¿Cambian las finales?

La Federación Internacional de Tenis propuso un cambio rotundo para las finales de Copa Davis y Fed Cup. El ente que organiza estas competiciones quiere que la ciudad de Ginebra (Suiza) sea la sede neutral a partir de 2018 hasta 2020. La propuesta contempla jugar el mismo fin de semana las definiciones de ambos torneos en un evento combinado bajo el nombre de Copa Mundial de Tenis. De esta manera se pondrá fin a la localia en una final del mundo, la cual puede generar ventajas para el país anfitrión ya que elige la sede, la superficie y hasta las bolas a utilizar en la serie. Sí, como le sucedió a Argentina en la final de 2016 ante Croacia en Zagreb. Sin embargo, la idea deberá ser aprobada en la asamblea general de la ITF, en agosto en la ciudad de Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. Ginebra recibiría el evento en el centro de convenciones Palexpo, que cuenta con capacidad para 18.000 espectadores. Si bien este sería un cambio estructural, no es el primero que proponen en el mundo de la raqueta. Semanas atrás, la ATP anunció cambios de reglas en el torneo Next Gen Finals, para menores de 22 años, que se realizará en Milan a principios de noviembre.

La magia de Delpo

Juan Martín Del Potro tiene entre ceja y ceja a Wimbledon, ya que se prepara con todo para adaptarse a la superficie del penúltimo Gran Slam del año. Por eso, este miércoles el argentino demostró sus ganas tras vencer a Giles Simon por 6-3, 3-6 y 10-5 (tie break) en su debut en el torneo de exhibición The Boodles, que se disputa en césped. El argentino ganó un puntazo e hizo un lujo en un punto ante el francés.

Por una cabeza

El tandilense Juan Martín Del Potro fue designado hoy como cabeza de serie número 30 para el abierto de Wimbledon, que comenzará el 3 de julio, según la nómina que dio a conocer la organización del Grand Slam inglés que tendrá como máximo favorito al británico Andy Murray, número uno del mundo y campeón en las ediciones de 2013 y 2016. Del Potro, ubicado en el puesto 32 del ranking mundial de la ATP y número uno del tenis argentino, volverá a pisar el césped de Wimbledon luego de su acceso del año pasado a la tercera ronda, con triunfos ante el francés Stéphane Robert y el suizo Stan Wawrinka, y la eliminación ante el galo Lucas Pouille, y sin una experiencia previa ya que por una lesión en el pubis no pudo jugar los torneos de Hertogenbosch y Queen's. El máximo favorito entonces será Murray, segundo el serbio Novak Djokovic, tercero el suizo Roger Federer y cuarto el español Rafael Nadal. Este Grand Slam, que se juega en el coqueto All England Club londinense, es el único de los cuatro grandes que modifica el ranking del circuito a la hora de elaborar su lista de cabezas de serie (la fórmula no se aplica para el cuadro femenino), ya que se calcula en base a un criterio diferente del habitual. En ese contexto, para definir los cabezas de serie, la organización toma los puntos ATP de cada jugador, les suman el 100 por ciento de las unidades que obtuvieron sobre césped durante el último año y el 75 por ciento de los conseguidos en el mejor torneo sobre la superficie de los anteriores 12 meses.

Debut y despedida... Diego Schwartzman cayó en el ATP 250 de Eastbourne, Gran Bretaña, ante el norteamericano Jared Donaldson de 20 años por 7-6, 3-6 y 7-5, en dos horas y 47 minutos. El Peque argento, 37° del ranking, tuvo un complicado arranque en el primer set, donde luchó hasta el final, pero terminó perdiendo en el tie break.La segund manga fue favorable para el argentino, que pareció levantar su juego y se llevó un 6-3 que lo hacía soñar en llegar a ganar el encuentro. Pero, en el capítulo definitivo, Donaldson (65° ATP) sacó un plus desde lo físico y se termino llevando el ultimo set con un 7-5 que le dió el triunfo.Horacio Zeballos es el único argentino que queda en el certamen y tendrá que enfrentarse al britanico Cameron Norrie de 21 años, rankeado 236°, y que llegó al torneo por una wild card. Si el marplatense pasa de ronda, se tendrá que cruzar en 16° de final al francés Gael Monfils (16°).

Un 9 de oro verde

El suizo Roger Federer derrotó al alemán Alexander Zverev en la final por 6-1 y 6-3 en 53 minutos, y logró su noveno título en Halle, a una semana de encarar el tercer Grand Slam de la temporada, en el césped de Wimbledon.Sin dejar jugar a Zverev desde el principio del encuentro, cortando cualquier inicio o propuesta de largos intercambios, mostrando una dejada exquisita y certera, Federer se alzó con su cuarto torneo esta temporada (Abierto de Australia, y Masters 1.000 de Miami e Indian Wells) para sumar el título 92 de su carrera. Atrás quedó la derrota del año pasado en estas mismas pistas en la ronda de semifinales, donde Federer se inclinó ante este mismo rival, por 7-6, 5-7 y 6-3. El suizo había tomado buena nota de aquel encuentro que marcó el 1-1 en sus enfrentamientos, y este domingo salió dispuesto a acabar por la vía rápida y sin contemplaciones, ante un adversario que necesita más ritmo y golpear tranquilo.[VID]OLEVID20170625_0001[/VID]En la primera manga, el alemán se mostró atenazado por los nervios, sin poder golpear a sus anchas, y Federer jugó con él a su antojo, con certeras dejadas y restos imposibles. La prueba del nerviosismo de Alexander fue el punto de set del primer parcial, una derecha larga cuando tenía toda la pista a su favor, después de un segundo servicio. Zverev entregó ese set en solo 23 minutos, sin haber dispuesto de una sola ocasión para amenazar el saque del suizo.En el segundo, hubo una tímida reacción de Zverev, pero solo fue un atisbo. El alemán, además, sufrió una caída en un intento para llegar a una endiablada dejada de Roger, y se lastimó el tobillo izquierdo por lo que tuvo que ser atendido en pista. Roto por las dejadas de Federer, casi humillado en algunos puntos, Zverev entregó el encuentro después de recibir una gran lección sobre césped.El suizo se fue del Gerry Weber Stadium, sin haber cedido un solo set en la semana, venciendo a los dos hermanos Zverev en su camino, y desplegando todo su arsenal de forma convincente. Federer encara Wimbledon (3 al 16 de julio), torneo que ha ganado en siete ocasiones, en la forma que planeaba. No le salieron bien las cosas en el anterior en Stuttgart, también sobre hierba, en su vuelta después de algo más de dos meses al circuito ante el alemán Tommy Haas, contra el que incluso tuvo bola de partido, pero ha sido pisar Halle, engrasar su maquinaria y disputar su undécima final allí, para recuperar sus buenas sensaciones.

Read: Ramanthan Stuns Thiem Next up for Albot is Andreas Seppi, who rallied from a set down to defeat Janko Tipsarevic 3-6, 6-4, 6-4.

The Italian continues to excel on grass, reaching the Eastbourne final in 2012 (l. Roddick) and Halle final in 2015 (l. Federer).

Sea Air Helping To Re-Charge Djokovic

Novak Djokovic believes that his trip to the south coast of England to compete at the Aegon International will have a positive effect on every aspect of his game. Speaking after his 25th match win of the year on Wednesday, the Serbian star admitted, “I came to Eastbourne because I wanted to experience match play – mentally, physically and tactically – every way you look at it. Because grass is a different surface from any other, I would like to get as much time on the court as possible. “The movement is very different from clay or hard courts. You've got to be very soft, very gentle, but yet very reactive… I’m trying to get as much of the match situations as possible, hear the chair umpire say 30-all, 4-all. Those kind of intense moments.” [ALSO LIKE] Djokovic, the highest-ranked male player to compete in Eastbourne since Marcelo Rios in 1999, has not competed at a grass-court event prior to Wimbledon since the 2010 Aegon Championships. Four days into his stay at Devonshire Park, the venue of the ATP World Tour 250 tournament, the 30 year old says the fans have made him feel most welcome. “It's a very kind of informal tournament in a good way, where you can go around the grounds and kind of interact with people,” said Djokovic. “Sure, people come up to you, but they respect you if you're going with a purpose to a certain court to observe a match or something like that. That's what happened the other day. People are really kind of respectful and giving me space for certain time until I finished with my scouting. “That's the nice thing about this tournament. I don't get to experience that. Usually I am, like most of the top players, in the locker rooms or especially in the areas where the players are going to be around. So it's nice to go around the outside courts and observe, because that's what we all used to do. It's good to do that again for a change.”  Watch Live On TennisTV  Watch Full Match Replays Djokovic has not lifted an ATP World Tour trophy since the first week of the season at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open (d. Murray) in January. With Wimbledon set to begin on 3 July, the Serbian admitted that it’s “good to not be one of the top favourites.” “I was very fortunate and privileged to have so much success in the past eight, nine years, and kind of enter most of the tournaments as one of the biggest favourites to win it. “It is ‘liberating’ a bit. It releases a bit of the pressure. It's always there. I mean, you still feel it. It's part of who I am, what I do. And what I have achieved so far has added to those expectations from the people around. “I try to lower those expectations myself, because I really want to be as much as I can, at this stage of my life and career, in the moment and try to focus only on what comes up next. That doesn't mean that I don't want to win trophies and so forth. Of course I do, that's why I'm playing professional tennis. But it's just that I need to take things a bit slower and try and re-calibrate so I can get to the level where I want to get. Djokovic, currently No. 4 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, has been named as second seed for The Championships at Wimbledon, where he is a three-time former champion.

Djokovic Gets Grass Campaign Underway In Eastbourne

Novak Djokovic recorded his 25th match win of the season on Wednesday in overcast conditions at the Aegon International in Eastbourne. Having played only 13 points due to rain on Tuesday, Djokovic returned to Devonshire Park, venue of the ATP World Tour 250 tournament, to complete a 6-4, 6-3 victory over qualifier Vasek Pospisil in 85 minutes. “I'm glad that I came here to Eastbourne,” said Djokovic. “I have had a great couple of days of training with good players, different styles of game. Yesterday, we obviously started the match and it wasn't really enjoyable to see the rain falling all day. “But today we kind of played a full match, so I'm glad for that. I felt good on the court, considering it was my first grass-court match. I played against an opponent that has a really good game for grass. He serves well, comes to the net and has good variety. It was a really, really solid win. I'm happy with it.” The 30-year-old Djokovic, who is competing at this first grass-court tournament prior to Wimbledon since the 2010 Aegon Championships, will now meet American Donald Young in the quarter-finals. Young managed to convert three of his 12 break point opportunities in a 6-4, 7-5 win over his #NextGenATP compatriot Jared Donaldson. Djokovic will now meet Young for the first time since the 2006 US Open. [ALSO LIKE]  Watch Live On TennisTV  Watch Full Match Replays

Ramanathan Stuns Thiem In Antalya

Qualifier Ramkumar Ramanathan of India scored one of the biggest upsets of the year on Tuesday at the Antalya Open, shocking top seed Dominic Thiem 6-3, 6-2 to reach the quarter-finals. “I just gave it my best and was serving well out there. Two or three points can often make the difference on grass,” said Ramanathan. “It’s a good start for my career, but it’s just a start. Hopefully I can keep it going.” The World No. 222 in the Emirates ATP Rankings broke Thiem three times and won the last five games of the match to reach his second ATP World Tour quarter-final and score the biggest win of his career. Ramanathan had only played six ATP World Tour main draws prior to this week, with four coming at home in Chennai. He reached the quarter-finals there in 2016 and the second round in 2014. The Indian player also advanced to his first ATP Challenger Tour final this April in Tallahassee. “It was a tough start to the year for me because I was one out (of the qualifying draw) for the Australian Open, so I went back home to train for a few weeks,” said Ramanathan. "I think that helped me a lot, though, and the Challengers that I played in the U.S. made me stronger. “ Thiem will head back to the drawing board after posting a 1-2 record on grass so far this year. He lost to Robin Haase last week in the second round at Halle. Joining Ramanathan in the quarter-finals is third seed Fernando Verdasco, who scored a convincing 6-3, 6-4 win over Steve Darcis. He'll play Adrian Mannarino in the last eight after the Frenchman defeated Egyptian qualifier Mohamed Safwat 6-4, 6-4. [ALSO LIKE] #NextGenATP German Daniel Altmaier recorded his first ATP World Tour main draw win by outlasting Victor Estrella Burgos in a marathon 7-5, 6-7(8), 7-6(5) match. Altmaier missed a match point opportunity at 8/7 in the second-set tie-break, but hung tough by rallying from 2/4 down in the deciding-set tie-break for the win. “It’s the biggest win of my career. I can’t describe it,” said Altmaier. “I had to refocus after missing the match point, but I wanted to fight out there. I really enjoyed it.” The 18 year old moved into the main draw as a lucky loser when fellow #NextGenATP player Hyeon Chung withdrew due to a left ankle injury. Altmaier, currently No. 252 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, qualified for his first ATP World Tour main draw last month in Geneva. He also reached the semi-finals of the ATP Challenger Tour event this January in Bangkok. Next up for Altmaier is local favourite Marsel llhan, who advanced when Martin Klizan was forced to retire at 6-6 in the first set. In other first-round matches, Janko Tipsarevic dismissed South African lucky loser Lloyd Harris 7-5, 6-3. Andreas Seppi moved on after defeating Polish qualifier Kamil Majchrzak 6-2, 7-6(1), while Marcos Baghdatis survived Carlos Berlocq 6-4, 3-6, 7-5. TOP SEEDS LINDSTEDT/QURESHI ADVANCE Robert Lindstedt and Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi moved past their first round by defeating Rogerio Dutra Silva and Paolo Lorenzi 6-3, 7-6(1).

Djokovic Ready To Switch It Up In Eastbourne

Novak Djokovic hasn’t played an ATP World Tour event on grass leading into Wimbledon since 2010, but he’s ready to try something new in hopes of a big run at the Aegon International in Eastbourne.  After more than a decade at the top of the sport, Djokovic’s tournament schedule has reflected that of a man who thrives on routine and familiarity. But in his first visit to Eastbourne, the Serbian has already been enjoying the tournament amenities and charm of this seaside town. “It's great to visit a new place and be part of a new event. We more or less have the same schedule each year, so I don't get to experience that too often,” said Djokovic. “There are a lot of matches and a lot of people coming out to watch and support the players. You can feel the appreciation for tennis that they have here. They love this event, so it's obviously a pleasure to be here.” [ALSO LIKE] Comparatively short on match play compared to recent seasons, Djokovic took a late wild card and believes the on-court time this week can only benefit him. The World No. 4 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, who plays qualifier Vasek Pospisil in his opening round, has never won a grass-court event outside of Wimbledon. He reached the Queen’s Club final in 2008 (l. Nadal) and Halle in 2009 (l.Haas). "I was fortunate to have lots of matches and lots of success in the first part of the year over the years, especially on the clay courts and always reaching the final stages of Roland Garros. And because of the old schedule, we had a week less (on grass), which was a bit challenging obviously coming from the slowest to the fastest surface in the sport. It's a big shift in only a few days,” said Djokovic. “I knew I wanted to play one this year, but thought Queen's and Halle would be too early for me. That's the reason why I came to Eastbourne. And it's a new place, so it does give me that extra motivation to be here." Djokovic won’t have Andre Agassi in his camp for Eastbourne, but the 1992 Wimbledon champion will be with him at SW19 for as long as he remains in the tournament. The Serbian believes they got off to a positive start in their coaching arrangement for Roland Garros and is eager to see it continue. “The eight or nine days that we spent together at Roland Garros were very valuable for me to get to know him and learn from him. We shared a lot of experiences on and off the court. Having him around is not only great for myself, but also for tennis,” said Djokovic. “I can see how much he cares about the game and how much he knows it. It was very interesting to hear his perspective on tennis before and now, how he analyses my game and what he sees with things to improve moving forward. I'm just looking forward to spending as much quality time with Andre as I can.”

Willis Moves Closer To Another Wimbledon Dream Run

Last year’s Wimbledon fairytale story Marcus Willis moved closer to another round of heroics on Monday, advancing into the second round of qualifying on along with eight #NextGenATP players.

This year in Roehampton, Willis produced more memorable moments with a qualifying wild card by scoring a 7-5, 7-5 win over 31st seed Andrej Martin of Slovakia. Next up for him is a fellow British wild card in Liam Broady. In an all-#NextGenATP battle, Elias Ymer of Sweden defeated Duckhee Lee of South Korea 6-3, 6-2. It was Ymer’s first match on grass since qualifying for the Wimbledon main draw two years ago. “If I’m playing a top-ranked guy, I really don’t know what to expect. But the (#NextGenATP) guys, I’ve seen (Duckhee) since I was 12, so it’s kind of a family kind of feeling. You relax more,” said Ymer to Wimbledon.com. “It feels like it’s on my level if I’m playing one of the young guys.” [ALSO LIKE] #NextGenATP player Stefanos Tsitsipas scored the upset of the day by defeating second seed Santiago Giraldo of Colombia 2-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Soares/Murray Double Their Fun For London Title

Third seeds Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares doubled their fun on Sunday at the Aegon Championships, winning their semi-final and the championship matches on the same day to take their second consecutive ATP World Tour doubles title on grass. “If you see the board that's down in the lounge, it's all the great players that have won the doubles here. All the best teams, the best doubles players. They get an amazing field every year and this year was no different,” said Murray. “I used to watch this tournament growing up all the time. I've played here a lot of times now. I obviously lost the final to Bruno a few years ago. It's a home event, and it has a little bit more on it, doesn't it? I'm really proud to get my name up on the board. It was a great week for us.” Murray/Soares started the day by finishing out their rain delayed semi-final against Marin Cilic and Marcin Matkowski with a 1-6, 6-3, 10-8 victory. They held set point in the second set on Saturday when showers forced them off the court, and kept the momentum on Sunday by racing to an 8/5 lead in the Match Tie-break before prevailing on their third match point. The third seeds returned to the court shortly after for a comprehensive 6-2, 6-3 win over French duo Julien Benneteau and Edouard Roger-Vasselin. Murray/Soares didn’t drop serve in the match, winning 78 per cent of their first-serve points and breaking Benneteau/Roger-Vasselin three times to prevail in 61 minutes. “Playing home events is not easy. You do get a lot of the support when you're on court, which is very nice, but I also know that there is a lot going on off court, so it's not easy for the local guys. It’s no different for Jamie,” said Soares. “But every time we are on court, it's very nice for us. We had the chance to play together in Brazil and it was amazing, and every time we come here it's really nice. Today was a special day, winning such a big tournament and with a great crowd.” [ALSO LIKE] Murray/Soares also lifted the winner’s trophy last week in Stuttgart (d. Marach/Pavic) and this March in Acapulco (d. Isner/Lopez). Their win today makes Murray the first British player to win the doubles title at the Queen’s Club since 1990. Soares picks up his second Queen's Club title after winning in 2014 (w/Peya). They earn 500 Emirates ATP Doubles Rankings points and split €119,140. Benneteau/Roger-Vasselin were pairing for the first time this season, but had previously enjoyed success with fellow Frenchman Nicolas Mahut. Benneteau/Mahut won the title this February in Marseille (d. Haase/Inglot), while Mahut/Roger-Vasselin finished runner-up at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event in Madrid (l. Kubot/Melo). Benneteau/Roger-Vasselin pick up 300 Emirates ATP Doubles Rankings points and split €58,330.  Watch Live On TennisTV  Watch Full Match Replays
