Andrea Hlavackova has taken a dig at Roger Federer

Andrea Hlavackova has taken a dig at Roger Federer’s countrywoman Martina Hingis, hinting that she believes the Swiss intentionally banged the ball straight at her eye to get her hurt and out of the match.


It was just a matter of one point for Hlavackova and her partner to win that Round of 4 Match and eliminate the team of Hingis and Timea.

But, then, suddenly, a powerful forehand off the racquet of Hingis smashes one of the eyes of Hlavackova putting her on the way to Hospital.

The doctors examined and revealed that Hlavackova had fracture in one of the bones of the eye she had been hit at and she had to be kept in supervision for that day which meant Hingis & Co. earned a timeout.

The third position match was scheduled the following day which the two semi-final losing pairs had to turn up for. Hlavackova did turn up for that with stitches on her face, but, was never going to be able to compete at her best with that kind of condition and so, ended up getting beaten.

Hingis had to suffer a loss as well in the final and had to be content with Silver only.

Novak Djokovic has totally dismissed the speculations

Novak Djokovic has totally dismissed the speculations that there is any sort of problem between him and one of his fiercest rivals Roger Federer.

According to Djokovic, it’s the press which is looking to create a drama.

Djokovic lost to Federer in a World Tour game the other day. The World no. 1 went down in straight sets and he was obviously quite disappointed with that performance of his.

His disappointment was quite clear in his words in the post match talk where he tried to suggest that his own mistakes cost him the match rather than Federer beating him.

The Serbian was quoted saying “I handed it to him; the credit should go to me”.

That statement of Djokovic did not sit well with Federer who’s believed to be a little bit annoyed with that.

But, Djokovic is of the view that he actually did not say anything like that.

Clarifying himself earlier in the afternoon today, Djokovic said, “I think it’s a case of misquoting me. As far as I can remember, I didn’t try to take the credit away from Roger at all. Of course, he played far better than me and that’s why, he won.”

Roger Federer did not like the way he was approached by a person

Roger Federer did not like the way he was approached by a person when he was making his way out of the arena having beaten Alejandro Falla in the opening round of the ongoing French Open.

That person turned out to be only a fan, but, according to Federer, for anyone to be given permission to enter the arena while the player is still there, it’s a security breach and it’s not pleasing at all.

Federer gave an angry sort of reaction to that kid as well.

Tennis has had history of players being harmed by the fans on the court. Who would have forgotten the Monica Seles incident which took place more than two decades back?

Seles was very fortunate to survive that attack. Had she been a little unlucky, she would have been killed.

Since that time, the organizers of every tournament have been very conscious regarding the security thing and as a result of that, nothing unpleasant has happened to the players in the recent times.

What happened to Federer was not unpleasant either, but, it was obvious for the Swiss to be a little upset about it. He surely would not have been expecting an outsider to reach him there on the court at that point of time.

Federer was pretty vocal in the press conference that followed the match.

Juan Martin Del Potro as he fell to Vasek Pospisil of Canada

It did not turn out to be a fairly tale comeback for Juan Martin Del Potro as he fell to Vasek Pospisil of Canada in his first match in Miami the other day.

But, the Argentinean, who has seen a horror of a time in the recent past, isn’t disheartened at all.

According to Del Potro, he would have loved to have a win to his name on his return, but, if it wasn’t meant to be, it’s okay. At this point of time, he is just happy to have gotten rid of all his physical issues and he is hoping for the best in future.

Regular absence on the tour over the last year resulted in Del Potro slipping quite low in ATP rankings.

It’s astonishing where he is right now in rankings. He is outside 600. Yes, 600.

Del Potro would know once he gets in his full flow and starts achieving the results to his liking, he would make the northward movement quite quickly. So, there is no point bothering about the rankings that much.
