Italian Week on Tennis Buzz

What comes to your mind when I say Italy? Probably art, fashion and food. To celebrate the first combined event in Rome, Tennis Buzz will feature Made in Italy: the italian week on Tennis Buzz to show you how italian art, fashion and food relate to tennis.

We’ll also have a look at past and present italian tennis champions. Enjoy!

Last tennis week by the numbers:

2010 Paris Bercy Masters: Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic has now won every tournament entered this year: the Australian Open, Dubai, Indian Wells and Miami. 24 matches in a row. With the clay court season coming, will he maintain his high level of play?.

Thanks to his semifinal at Miami, Mardy Fish rises to rank number 11. With Andy Roddick dropping down to world number 14, Fish is now the top ranked American player on the men’s tour.

With her win in Miami Victoria Azarenka reaches a career-high No. 6 on the WTA rankings.
I’m really sorry for the people who had tickets for this high decibel final between Azarenka and Sharapova. Life of a tennis fan is sometimes really cruel.

After a semifinal at Indian Wells and a final at Miami, Maria Sharapova is back in the Top 10 for the first time in more than two years, going from No.13 to No.9.

Andy Murray has not won a single match since his semifinal win over David Ferrer at the Australian Open. He has split with part-time coaching consultant Alex Corretja. British press speculate about a future collaboration between Murray and Ivan Lendl.
