I've recently moved back to the A2 area after a few years away, and sadly most of my tennis hitting buddies have since moved out of the area. The tennis meetup sites don't seem to have a lot to offer around here, so I figured I'd reach out to the MGoBlogosphere. Anyone interested in meeting up for a hit? I'm in the NTRP 4.0-4.5ish range. If there's any interest, I'll post an email in the thread so we can get in touch.
Novak Djokovic takes on Stan Wawrinka this morning at 9:00 AM EST for the French Open title. Could have big implications as Novak goes for a Grand Slam.
Should be a good match! Thought I'd post this for any fellow tennis lovers out there. Happy Sunday!
Today, Michigan fired Men's tennis coach Bruce Berque after 10 seasons.
9 straight years in the NCAA Tournament must not be good enough for DB.
A very strange amount of coaching changes on this campus in the "non-revenue sports" the last two years. From what I've heard from various people and a few posters on here, Water Polo coach Matt Anderson was forced out rather than him leaving last month on his own terms despite a slew of championships here in the past.
News just broke on @umichtennis and MGoBlue.
The Michigan Men's and Women's tennis teams both played today with different results. The men lost 4-2 to #22 Illinois and the women beat Yale 4-0. With the win the Michigan women advance to the ITA National Indoor Championships for the fifth year, which is comprised of 16 teams.
The great rivalry is renewed tonight Down Under in the Australian Open. The GOAT (greatest of all time) against the man who has owned him. Rafa has a strong winning record against Federer in the Slams, and Roger has not beat him in a Grand Slam since 2007. Fed is coming off of major wins over Tsonga and Murray and is playing his best tennis since at least 2012, while Nadal just took out the so-called "Baby Fed", Grigor Dimitrov.
Who knows how many more matches we will be able to see in this glorious rivalry which has produced the greatest match of all time, as well as quite a few other classics. So set your DVRs or wake up in the middle of the night for this one if you want to see some entertaining tennis.
Federer vs. Nadal, 3:30 a.m. EST live on ESPN
Come on Roger!
