Congratulations to the Aussie Open 2021 Champions!

Novak Djokovic won his 9th Australian Open Title in straight sets vs. Daniil Medvedev, 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 today!

Medvedev lost his cool as he became more frustrated throughout the match, failing to produce his usual high quality of play and more of a challenge to Djokovic who was playing great tennis. Djokovic too had this issue in the past, resulting in a few losses, but as his tennis game matured, so did he. Looking to see more of Medvedev in the near future.

This Championship win now gives Djokovic 18 Grand Slam Titles as he moves closer to his other 2 rivals in the Big 3 of Men’s Tennis, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal with 20 Grand Slam Titles each. Congrats Novak!

Congratulations to Naomi OSAKA for winning her 4th Major title on Saturday!

Naomi Osaka overpowered Jennifer Brady as expected in the Australian Open Final, 6-4, 6-3.

She is starting to pull away from the pack! She now has 2 Australian Open Titles and 2 US Open Titles.

Osaka is now known as the Queen of the Hard Courts. A humble reaction to her win. Calm and composed. Congrats Naomi!

Until next year!

What’s Happening at the French Open?

Hello Tennis fans! Suga hasn’t forgotten you!

Women’s Singles

Serena Williams (2) is on maternity leave and watching from the stands this French Open. So who is still in it for the Ladies?!

Her sister, Venus of course! Can Venus Williams (10) win another Grand Slam before she retires? It is very possible. She has been on top of her game and already through to the 4th round.

Who will stand in her way?

The Women’s side of the draw is usually a toss up, especially without Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams.

World #1, Angelique Kerber has been inconsistent and was defeated in the 1st round in straight sets by Tsurenko Makarova. Makarova was defeated in the 2nd round.

Suga thinks Venus’ biggest threat is Defending Champ, Garbine Muguruza (4), who is also moving on to Round 4.

Simona Halep (3) was questionable to enter the French Open because she injured her ankle in a tournament before this, but she is already through to Round 3. I don’t think she is in it for the long run though.

Agnieszka Radwanska (9) and Elina Svitolina (5) are through to Round 3.

Rounding off the top 10 ladies, Svetlana Kiznetsova (8) is through to the 4th round.

If Venus doesn’t win the French, my money is on her to win Wimbledon.

Men’s Singles

Novak Djokovic (2) seems to be back in Championship shape and he is now being coached by one of the greats, Andre Agassi. He is already through to Round 4 but may be destined to clash with the clay court specialist and veteran, Rafael Nadal (4) who is also through to Round 4.

Andy Murray (1) says he is feeling good again but he is still not at his best just yet. He will play Juan del Potro (29) in Round 3.

Milos Raonic (5) and the Austrian, Dominic Thiem (6) are through to Round 4.

Kei Nishikori (8), Stan Wawrinka (3) and Marin Cilic (7) who round off the top 10 Men are in Round 3.

Gaël Monfils (15), who is usually very competitive is in Round 3 as well.

Suga thinks either Djoko or Rafa will take the French Open for the Men.

Remember the veteran, Roger Federer is sitting this one out to save his energy for the grass and hard courts. If he stays in top shape, I believe he will win Wimbledon. Do we have another vintage Finals coming up at Wimbledon for the Ladies and Men? Possible.

Stay tuned everyone!
