Comebacks from two sets down

Cilic comeback from two sets downThe last grand slam of the year started yesterday.

As you probably already know, the four grand slams have a very important place in a tennis trader’s calendar.

First week of tennis trading in 2012

The first week of tennis trading in 2012 has come and gone.

Federer, Florian Mayer, Polona Hectog, Serena Williams, Steve Darcis, Tommy Haas, Bogomolov Jr., Lisicki, Penneta, Clijsters, Georges, Volandri and Kuznetsova have all withdrawn from matches in the first or early second week tournaments.

The good news is that most of the mentioned players will be fit and ready to play at the Australian Open is less then a week’s time.
