ATP Tournament Highlights

Thankfully the ATP Tournament in Rome started out without any clay complaints, otherwise tennis would be under serious speculations after what happened at the Madrid Masters. Even Novak Djokovic must have sighed a relief, not just of the fact that he cleared the second round but also because he didn’t not see any sea of blue around.

Okay perhaps its time to let the pro go clean off his blue-antrums and focus on his playing because he still remains number 1.

Besides Djoko, Maria Sharapova also cruised through the second round. Both were in excellent forms and their games well showed it.

Djokovic beat Australian teenager Bernard Tomic with scores of 6-3 6-3. Tomic managed to get a break in the game but Djokovic broke him and sailed through. A game that lasted 68 minutes, it was a good warmer for the world champion but a job well done to the teenager. He was well aware that he had nothing to lose from this game playing against no 1, so he played it with all his dedication.

After that was the match of Andy Murray versus David Nalbandian of Argentina. Fourth seed Murray had missed the Madrid Masters due to injury swooped through the starting set of the game but Nalbandian game him quite the chase. The second set scored 6-4.

But eventually the birthday boy got his present and took home the victory. Murray has turned 25.

One the women’s side, Sharapova’s game against American Christina McHale was again a challenging one. Even though Sharapova won the game, her opponent made sure it wasn’t handed on easy to her. In a game that lasted for 2 hours and 12 minutes, the scores at the end were 7-5, 7-5.

Sharapova said that she had made too many forced errors. She also added that her opponent was playing to a great level and wasn’t making things any easier.

Along with Sharapova, Petra Kvitova also cleared the second round. She won against Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova with scores of 7-5 6-4.

Kvitova has expressed a liking to clay after she said that she has been adapting better to clay courts now. Petra Kvitova’s last title was of Wimbledon of last year. She looks forward to making a mark with more future tournaments.
