評論 | Men’s Finals Preview: Murray vs. Djokovic

Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, friends since junior days, face off in the men’s singles final of the Australian Open on Sunday. For Djokovic, this is his second straight trip to a Grand Slam final (he lost in four sets to Nadal at Flushing Meadows), while Murray again finds himself in the finals of the Australian. He lost last year in straight sets to Roger Federer. While the two know each other well, they have only met seven times on the tour. Djokovic holds a slight edge 4-3, but Murray has won their last three meetings.

Since leading Serbia to a Davis Cup victory, Djokovic has been playing at a different level. He seems to have tamed his demons at last, playing nearly flawless tennis in his march through the draw. Marian Vajda, Djokovic’s longtime coach, said that he had never seen his player perform at such a sustained high level as he did in his straight set dismantling of defending champion Roger Federer. His serve, which had an awkward hitch in the takeback throughout most of 2010, has become a fluid, lethal whip of a motion. He is striking the ball cleanly off of both sides, varying pace, height, and spin with an artist’s touch.

教學 | Tomas Berdych 發球慢動作解析

這是第一篇教網球教學文;會選擇Tomas Berdych,不但是因為他是頂尖球手,而是他雖然人高馬大,卻能有輕鬆的動作而強力的擊球;在實際練習時可以先忽略下半身動作,拉拍動作小一些,等習慣了節奏與拋球動作,再加入一些本篇文章提到的細節。

01/ 預備動作: Berdych用的是大陸式握拍,上半身稍微前傾球置於球拍(拍面向上)頸部;請注意站位方式

02/ 球拍開始向後拉,左手臂保持直線狀準備拋球,左腳跟亦準備踩地

03/ Berdych的高拋球讓他有充分時間作大揮拍動作,此時兩腳灣彎曲,左手舉直而視線專注於拋球位置

04/ 包含正手與雙腳皆為彎曲狀

05/ 蹬地前球拍拉到背部位置(注意右手應保持輕鬆),左手臂收回 

06/ 跳躍時身體保持正直,利用右手揮拍與蹬地的動能將重心由後相前帶

07/ 平擊壓球  擊球時身體騰空,左手收在腹部前以保持平衡

08/ 左腳先落地,注視球行徑路線,右腳隨後跟上

09/ 預測對手回發球路線並做好預備

新聞 | 納達爾腿傷出局 全滿貫夢碎


Jan 26 (Reuters) - The sight of a stricken Rafa Nadal being finished off by fellow Spaniard David Ferrer at the Australian Open on Wednesday was a stark reminder of the precipice he walks in search of sporting perfection.

Just three games into the contest, it was clear something had broken in the 24-year-old's highly-tuned body, depriving him of the athleticism and explosive power that had pushed him to the brink of completing one of the sport's rarest and most treasured collections.

His straight sets quarter-final loss, having playing most of the match in clear physical distress with an apparent hamstring injury, means there will be no 'Rafa Slam' and Rod Laver, back in 1969, is still the last man to hold all four majors at the same time.
