Quarters Gives us "Big" Match on Men's Side at NCAA Tennis

Steve Johnson is looking for his 70th straight win and Alex Domijan of Virginia is looking to pull an upset.

These two big, strong players will take the court in what should be an interesting match with lots of winners being hit.

Domijan is tall and has a big game.  He will serve, he will crack forehands.  Johnson will try to do what he always does and just win.

Hot temps expected today in Athens and big hitting in this men's match.

Steve Johnson - USC 

Alex Domijan - Virginia


Australian Open Day 10: Match of the Day

Novak Djokovic vs. David Ferrer

The number one player in the world against the number one fighter on tour.

Ferrer posses all sorts of problems for most players.  Novak Djokovic hopes he doesn't have that many problems in this quarter-final match.

Djokovic holds a 6-5 carrer edge over the Spaniard, and won the last meeting at the World Tour Finals in November.  This court is playing slow, but I have to give the edge to Djokovic.

It won't be easy, it never is against a player like Ferrer.

Djokovic wins in 4 sets.


Australian Open Day 9: Match of the Day

Caroline Wozniacki vs. Kim Clijsters

A match I have been waiting for all last week.

Clijsters had to get a little lucky in the last round to beat Li Na, but how will her ankle be heading into this match where she will have to run and hit a ton of balls.

Surprisingly these two have only played two times in their career.  Clijsters has won both meetings, but they were both very close.

This time around, Wozniacki will be the fresher player.  I think that gives her the edge to take the match in two very long and tough sets.

Wimbledon Day 9 Match of the Day: Kvitova vs. Pironkova

We have reached the quarter-finals of the 2011 Wimbledon Championships. 

Monday was almost too much action for one to take.  Will things settle down on Tuesday?  I don't think so, and pay special attention to the Petra Kvitova and Tsvetana Pironkova because the 2011 Ladies Champion could come out of this match.

Both scored impressive wins on Monday and I'm not expecting anything less than a three-setter complete with tiebreakers and great shot making.

Prediction:  Kvitova in 3 sets.
