2012 Professional Tennis Overview
Novak the JOKER is no longer any joke--he is hyper confident, super fit, superfast and has the fire in his belly to beat everyone. Likewise, Roger at 30 continues to amaze us with his variety, fluidity and effortless, elegant shotmaking and seemingly imperturbable composure. RAFA is likewise playing with his typical bulldog tenacity , not conceding any point, yet gracious in victory after dismantling his opponents. Clearly a level differece between these three racketeers and everyone else on the planet. Staying healthy for the whole season is a feat in itself, and the biggest challenge for the the top 3 players.
Andy Murray is close to breaking into the top 3, along with Tsonga. Both just need to win a slam to BELIEVE in themselves a bit more. Soderling and DelPotro are the giants that can blow anyone off the court when they are in the zone.
Hooray--Kimmie Clijsters comes back, Caroline Wozzie is super steady, still learning and searching for the big slam. Sam Stosur and Li Na just have to play at a consistently high level to collect the big trophies. Questions of fitness and motivation may be catching up with the Williams sisters, no longer able to intimidate or overpower opponnents. Maria Sharapova, Ana I and Petkovic round out our other picks. Look for some interesting tournaments and great matches!
