    Aus Open 2002: Capriati scripts a stunning sequel in Australia

    By Suzi Petkovski, Tennis Week, February 2002: Rarely does the sequel beat the original.

Next opponent for Nadal: last year surprising runner-up Jerzy Janowicz. Rafa’s interview after the match: More videos of Nadal’s second round match.

Del Potro

Bercy 2013 day 3: Del Potro vs Cilic

Without a doubt the most boring match I’ve watched all week.

The most entertaining part of the match was players challenging the calls, go figure… 19 aces for […]
