Yahoo News - about 2 years
Confident Novak Djokovic on Sunday was counting down to his start at the Dubai Tennis Championships confident of maintaining the devastating form which has left him as the dominating force in tennis for the past year. The world number one will begin at the Aviation Club in the first round against Spain's Tommy Robredo, and the 28-year-old Serb's mental and physical level could not be at a much higher pitch. After beating Andy Murray for a sixth Australian Open trophy three weeks ago, the family man put down his racquet for two weeks, spending time with his wife and young son.

Three hours, one break as Raonic beats Robredo at Australian Open
Yahoo News - about 2 years
Milos Raonic beat Tommy Robredo in unusual fashion at the Australian Open on Thursday when he secured victory with the only service break of the match -- after nearly three hours of play, and in the very last game. The big-serving Canadian finally broke Robredo's serve at the 12th attempt and in the 36th game to win it 7-6 (8/6), 7-6 (7/5), 7-5 and reach the third round after two hours and 55 minutes. Raonic's reward is a round of 32 meeting with Serbian 21st seed Viktor Troicki, who won last week's Sydney International.

Djokovic, Serena stay hot as Melbourne cools
Yahoo News - about 4 years
By Nick Mulvenney MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Novak Djokovic bared his teeth to finish off Denis Istomin and extend the hottest winning streak in tennis to 27 matches in the third round of the Australian Open on Friday as a cool front brought respite to Melbourne after a four-day heatwave. Serena Williams earlier made light of the last of the scorching temperatures, which again peaked around 42 degrees Celsius (110 degrees Fahrenheit), to blast her way into the fourth round for the loss of only a dozen games. China's Li Na escaped defeat by a matter of centimeters in her third round match, while Spain's David Ferrer continued carving his way through the men's draw largely unnoticed. Ferrer's compatriot Tommy Robredo caused the biggest upset of the day by edging ninth seed Richard Gasquet 2-6 7-5 6-4 7-6(6) in an evening thriller disrupted briefly by rain.

Rafael Nadal Reaches U.S. Open Semifinals, Beats Tommy Robredo Easily
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
NEW YORK — It's as though Rafael Nadal never left. If anything, he's playing better than ever. A year after skipping the U.S. Open because of a bad knee, Nadal powered his way back to the semifinals at Flushing Meadows, overwhelming 19th-seeded Tommy Robredo 6-0, 6-2, 6-2 on Wednesday night. "I think I played my best match at the U.S. Open this year. Great to be able to play your best match in the quarterfinals," Nadal said. "Playing a little better every day is a great feeling." The second-seeded Nadal improved to 20-0 on hard courts in 2013, part of an overall record of 58-3 with nine titles, including his record eighth championship at the French Open in June. At the next Grand Slam tournament, though, Nadal flopped, exiting in the first round at Wimbledon. That surprising defeat, against a guy ranked 135th, came on June 24. Feels like eons ago. Nadal hasn't lost a match to anyone since. His 12 major trophies include the 2010 U.S. Open, and he has reached at least the semifinals ...

The Huffington Post - over 4 years
It might be time to start getting used to not seeing Roger Federer late in Grand Slam tournaments. At 32 years old, the record holder for career Grand Slam men's singles titles failed to reach the U.S. Open quarterfinals for the first time in a decade. With Federer's loss to 19th-seeded Tommy Robredo in straight sets on Monday night, 2013 also marks the first time since 2002 that the Swiss star failed to appear in a Grand Slam final. He lost in the semifinals at the Australian Open, in the quarterfinals at the French Open and was ousted in the second round at Wimbledon. More...

Richard Gasquet Beats David Ferrer To Reach U.S. Open Semifinal (PHOTOS)
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
NEW YORK -- Richard Gasquet is getting the hang of this five-set thing. The eighth-seeded Gasquet reached his second Grand Slam semifinal, and first since 2007, by eliminating fourth-seeded David Ferrer of Spain 6-3, 6-1, 4-6, 2-6, 6-3 at the U.S. Open on Wednesday. "It means a lot. I'm 27, so the last time I did it, I was 21 years old," France's Gasquet said. "For sure, it's a big victory for me." He was playing in only the second major quarterfinal of his career, having been 1-15 in fourth-round matches until edging No. 10 Milos Raonic on Monday, also in five sets. Gasquet is 7-12 in matches that go the distance, a far cry from Ferrer's 19-10 mark. But it was Ferrer who faltered down the stretch after coming back to even the match by winning the third and fourth sets. Ferrer, the runner-up to Rafael Nadal at the French Open in July, played a loose game while down 3-2 in the fifth, including a double-fault on break point. Gasquet's only previous Grand Slam semifinal came at Wimble...
