THE BIG FOUR – PART 4 / A LOOK @ THE ATP MEN’S TENNIS TOP PLAYERS AS THEY GO INTO THE 2014 US OPEN

Here's the final installment. The draw looks very good for Federer. Djokovic, Murray, Raonic, Wawrinka and Tsonga all in the other half. Ferrer, Berdych, Monfils and Gasquet fight it out for the privilege of playing Roger in the semis after he deals with Dimitrov in the quarters.

THE BIG FOUR – PART 4 – THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SUMMER HARDCOURT SEASON ALSO KNOWN AS THE US OPEN SERIES UPDATE ON FEDERER , RAFA , MURRAY AND DJOKOVIC BY DR. DON BROSSEAU

I started out this series of articles to emphasize the importance of the six week season from the week of the Washington D.C. tournament before Toronto through to the end of the US Open. I ended up talking more about the Big Four and how they have attained and maintained their dominance over the field since September 2008, almost 6 years ago.

If you take a look at Part 2 of this series on the Big Four, you will see that since they first took up the first four slots on September 8, 2008 only in 2009 when Del Potro won the US Open and 2012 when Rafa was out for the last half of the year and David Ferrer had a great year has anyone else been able to pierce the 6000 point barrier.

When Andy Murray reached #4 in the world on September 8, 2008, the Big Four had arrived. Here are the top 5 year end and mid-year(after Wimbledon) rankings and the point totals from 12/25/2006 to this year after Wimbledon.

I decided to try to write an article on how important the tournaments are the next 3 weeks and really the next 6 weeks including the US Open, but I felt the best way to illustrate that was to show how important these events have been to the Big Four: Federer, Djokovic, Nadal and Murray.

CARSON CALIFORNIA LADIES PRO TENNIS BY DR. DON BROSSEAU

I wasn't able to make it to Carson for Tuesday's matches. I spend a lot of time trying to keep track of what's happening to some of my current or former students, or just to players I am interested in online. So, when I can't get video feeds of a match, I might keep track of the match statistics entered in real time by the umpire.

A HEARTFELT APOLOGY TO ANNELISE ANDERSON AND THE YAKIMA TENNIS CLUB

I owe a big apology to the Yakima Tennis Club and their tournament director, AnnElise Anderson. I wrote "the only reason this event is here in Carson is it was going to be cancelled at its site up in the Pacific Northwest; the tournament basically folded". That was very poor reporting on my part. Yakima gave up the tournament because of a fire that destroyed the clubhouse.

THE LAST TENNIS TOURNAMENT IN LOS ANGELES BY DR. DON BROSSEAU AKA 10SCHIRO

Actually, there are no tournaments in Los Angeles anymore that afford the chance to earn ATP or WTA points. Carson is an independent incorporated city, but at least it is in Los Angeles county and we think of it as part of Los Angeles. This coming week’s (qualis start Sunday, July 13) is the USTA PLAYER DEVELOPMENT WOMEN'S $50,000 CLASSIC.

LADIES TENNIS REVIEW FROM CARSON CALIFORNIA BY DR. DON BROSSEAU THE 10SCHIRO

I got to make it down to the USTA PLAYER DEVELOPMENT WOMEN'S $50,000 CLASSIC at the Stub Hub Center in Carson yesterday. I wanted to see the second round qualifying match of one of my former students, Danielle Lao. I was a little late and they got off to a quick start and when I arrived Danielle seemed to have the situation well in hand...

Wawrinka Takes Out Berdych. 6-3,6-7,7-6,7-6 In Australian Open by Dr. Don Brosseau

Going late into the third set, I thought Wawrinka was making a mistake in not engaging in more rallies involving movement like he and Djokovic demonstrated in the quarters. I felt that while Berdych is definitely an exquisite striker of the ball, he did not move as well as Wawrinka...

The Australian Open Men’s Preview By Dr. Don Brosseau

Nadal faces an interesting first round in a hot Bernard Tomic, but Rafa got plenty of prep in winning Doha and should be ready for the Aussie. If it happens, his third round match against Monfils could be a tougher challenge. Monfils was able to take a set in the finals of Doha.
