Djokovic, Zvonareva Upset Federer, Wozniacki for Dubai, Doha Titles

Novak Djokovic flexed his muscles with some heavy groundstrokes, while former No. 1 Roger Federer seemed unable to reach for a higher gear when he needed it as the Serb defeated the Swiss 6-3, 6-3 on Saturday to capture his third consecutive title at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.


Since losing to Federer in November at the ATP World Tour Finals, Djokovic has run off with a 14-0 record, leading Serbia to the Davis Cup title, winning the Australian Open (where he beat Federer) and now Dubai.

“It’s really important to know for me that I can perform this well,” said Djokovic. “This match has probably been one of the best that I played this year…I feel physically well, fit, mentally motivated to do even more coming up to Indian Wells and Miami where I haven’t done well in the last years.”

Djokovic broke Federer in the third game of the first set, and came down from a break in the second set. Djokovic consistently pounded the Federer backhand, which is not aging gracefully with the 29-year-old Swiss, much like Pete Sampras’ one-handed backhand declined in his final years. Late in the second set the Federer backhand also let him down, producing some critical unforced errors.

“Obviously disappointing end as well to the match,” Federer said. “I guess you can’t win them all. I played so well in Doha in the finals, in London in the finals, in Basel in the finals. I guess I had to mess one up. It’s a pity, but, look, Novak played great…I thought he was already playing well at the end of last year. We had a couple of real close ones. This one has been one of the rather disappointing matches for me against him. I can’t play great every time either. So it’s been a tough one, but I’m not too disappointed. It’s another final for me. I tried tonight. Just didn’t really happen for me.”

Zvonareva Upsets World No. 1 Wozniacki in WTA Doha Final

World No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki was stopped from winning her second title in two weeks on Saturday when she was defeated in the final of the Qatar Ladies Open 6-4, 6-4 by No. 2-seeded Russian Vera Zvonareva.

Wozniacki was a title winner last week in Dubai, and drops to 13-9 in career singles finals.

“I’m always disappointed to lose but I played a great competitor today,” Wozniacki said. “Vera played a great match and a great tournament. I’m happy to be in the finals; it was another great tournament for me and I always enjoy being back in Doha.”

It was the first title in over a year for Zvonareva, who improved to 11-16 in career finals.

“I was just fighting for every point and trying to go for my shots,” Zvonareva said. “This is definitely a special moment for me, especially after that tough match against Daniela [Hantuchova] and another great one against Jelena [Jankovic]. I have so many fans here it’s unbelievable.”

It was the sixth meeting in the last 12 months for the two, with Zvonareva evening their career series at 4-4.

blueone Says:

Federer’s backhand aging not gracefully?!? really? did you miss Federer’s matches during the World Tour Final on november (even Nadal had no other option since the very one he used all the time – consistently pounded Federer’s backhand – didn’t work at all), his matches in Doha or in Melbourne last month? His backhand was far from good today but to read something else into it is quite premature by a long, long way!


Skeezerweezer Says:

Agreed BH is fine. Been better but been worse. Missing the mark here. Watchers are focused on the end result here, at least in this match. The root cause was Noles return game, which put Fed in a rough place when these points started. That kind of pressure puts you behind the eight ball very quickly. Nole is actually serving decent nowadays also…


Kimmi Says:

happy for zvonareva. wozniacki has been winning her matches very easily, thought this will be another one sided to woz, but boy i was wrong..

Delpo vs fish tonight. go delpo!

ferrer vs almagro, i dont really care who wins, almago win will be big for him though..3 tournaments in a row..wow!


dari Says:

Feds poor play today is slightly ameliorated by the fact that del ray delpo fish semi is on tonight- ON THE TV.
I’m not giving up on fed, he’s old and players right next to him are playing fantastic tennis. I just don’t want him to walk away always feeling disappointed like he surely did today. He can’t even say “well, at least I played well” cause he didnt! He had the exact same fate as gasquet did against him yesterday, with that break lead, then -bam- total deflation. Maybe his fans are going to take the let downs worse than he will. That’s what keeps me going. Rog may not be happy with the way he played, but he will remain hopeful/delusional about his tennis and go about living his extraordinary life with a happy family and SIXTEEN major titles.
As for tonight- go delpo!
As for forever- long live king rog!


dari Says:

Maybe when fed retires i’ll get more into doubles. There’s a good match on now at del ray- butorac/ roger- see that little slip, its supposed to be roJer! Vs lipsky/ram.
Ah well, I already feel like I want to rescend my nonchalant attitude towards fed. The nonchalant delusion is getting him nowhere right now. Can he, will he, does he want to retool? Or can he pull out two weeks of magical tennis once more, with a little help from the right player going out of the tourney at the right time? Maybe fed is so annointed that he can only have one major monkey on his back and while nole seems to take that position now, he will start beating Rafa in the slams! Oh the dreams.
He’s still the best ever. Can’t take that away.


Kimmi Says:

dari – yeah go delpo! i think he has a great chance tonight. so happy there is a stream..


Kimmi Says:

dreams dari, i have so many. just now thinking it is not a big deal. it was only couple of months ago when fed was brilliant. you cant lose everything in couple of months.

rafa was the man during clay, wimbledon, uso. federer was the man during the year end and djoko is the man now. i am thinking tennis can change very quickly. federer could be playing well in few months..hoping!


Kimmi Says:

haha they introduce delpo as the first player to beat both rafa and roger in a slam…so true.

go delpo!


dari Says:

I forget delpo is only 22! Younger than any of the big names we are talking about now ( minus raonic). If the wrist is not an issue and he can get the confidence back, I don’t have to worry about looking for favorites for a long time. And hes a lovable one, ain’t he, that delpo?


Kimmi Says:

the delpo is definetly lovable dari :) early break for him..


dari Says:

Good consolidation of the break for delpo. Fish impressing with his retrieval skills, expected a few points to be over with delpo fh, but mardy was getting them back and deep.


Kimmi Says:

delpo cranking up the FH…that is the way to play! those first few games i thought he was nursing the ball a little bit, even though he broke fish.


jane Says:

I would be shocked if Delpo doesn’t win this title! He seems primed and ready for it.


dari Says:

Ok, well applauded fish defense, but that’s all he is doing is retrieving! Delpo taking all the offense for himself, and doing it well. Keep it up, polito.


Kimmi Says:

easy first set! keep going delpo!


Kimmi Says:

fish had to hold that first game second set…and he did. game on now!


Kimmi Says:

too many breaks..what is happening?


dari Says:

break back mountain! delpo gets it this time. Want him to finish in two, save energy for finale. Vamos polito!


Kimmi Says:

fish really attacking, delpo needs to hold


stu Says:

is it my imagination (since I’m paying more attention to the wrist than I normally would) or is does delpo use his wrist more than he should in tennis, almost like he’s playing squash?


stu Says:

yayyyy delpo!!!


Kimmi Says:

wowoo, very important break! serve it out now!


Kimmi Says:

delpo needs first serve now


Kimmi Says:

the serve just not big enough but the groundies are compesating


dari Says:

Ok he’s done it! Chance for the title, delpo!


Kimmi Says:

GSM delpo!

next tipsarevic..gooo delpo! win it.


jane Says:

Congrats to Delpo. Can’t see Tipsy beating him, so it looks like the title is his. Tipsy can surprise, though, but I would be very surprised were he to stop Delpo now!


dari Says:

Yeah, let’s hope tipsy doesn’t get his first title tomorrow. Buen suerte palito


Kimmi Says:

ferrer up a set..almago was serving for the set then folded!


sar Says:

Does anyone know the amount of appearance fees the top players got at Dubai?


stu Says:

I’ve been playing with what-if ranking scenarios for the top 3. The points towards the end of the year will be _extremely_ close if Rafa defends the French title (and goes deep in the other 2 Slams; say semis or better), if the other 2 Slam winners are Roger and Novak. Assuming the top 3 all win a Masters title or 2, and get to the quarters or deeper in the rest, allowing for other surprise winners in the non-Slam events.

Promises to be a very exciting year, even if the young’uns play spoiler!


stu Says:

I’m curious too, sar. Wasn’t Rafa offered a million dollars to play in 2009?


al Says:

Oh Tipsy is in a final? I hope he win it. :p


Skeezerweezer Says:

Dari

“He’s still the best ever. Can’t take that away.

No, one can and it will be a very long time before any player matches the records of the great one even if he ended tomorrow.

Look, he made it to a final. Who else got there? Only one other guy. Would a Rafa or Murray fan be happy if they make it to a final? Sure! Me thinks sometimes wee set the bar to high for Fed. 16 slams and GOAT not good enough? If it’s the last tourney he makes it to a final his career stands unmatched in the history of the game.


stu Says:

Skeezer, I think I read this somewhere – Federer is 14-2 for the year, 14-0 against players other than Djokovic :)


Kimmi Says:

why did they finish all these tournaments on saturday anyways..just wondering.

women final in doha was saturday, dubai final and brazil final…not much tennis to look forward to on sunday aghh!

well, at least their is delpo. go get your title tonight.


Kimmi Says:

aah, s/b “at least there is delpo” sorry for typos. just checked derlay final is at 3pm not tonight..booo!

dari, so it will be first title for tipsy, wow! thought tipsy already had a title..


Tennis Vagabond Says:

Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’
Fed has not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which he is, he is;
One equal temper of heroic heart,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Fed is on the descent into history’s night.
But he will win Wimbledon.
Rafa will be broken down by the clay slog, which promises to be that much tougher the way Novak and Ferrer are playing, and Novak does not have that mastery of grass.


contador Says:

dari. funny about you getting into doubles when fed retires. actually i have been getting into them and mixed doubles too – at least at the GS’s. having pneumonia helped free up the time. never really been into davis cup but this morning i’m browsing the davis cup website checking all the teams playing . USA v chile… hmm…..looking for tennis.

the thing i realize, is while there are lots of players i love watching, it’s not the same as federer. federer made it all look so easy, for quite awhile anyway.

every player has their own style but to me it’s a rare player who has a game and shots that completely distinguish them from anyone. must say rafa does that ( not in a way i particularly appreciate like others do ), roger did it, and now of all the players i’ve watched, dolgopolov, d’lov, does it. he’s a joy to watch, if you can stand “agressive to the point of psychosis,” as roddick called him. completely think he tweaked the wrist the other night unfortunately v ferrer. but he’s way different than anyone else. he’s the one whose matches i’ve hunted down since 2009 when he was still “olexsandr jr.” his quick wind up on the serve, disguise and placement, lol…the pogo serve is sick! all best players have great reflexes but his are simply put: really unusual. the only way i can describe it.
_________________________

looking at results i see ferrer won. wow, what an iron will! and he keeps going and going at almost 29. a beast! but if almagro keeps playing like he has, he might be into top ten by the end of clay season? ( dont remember what he has to defend ).

yep, top ten could have a very different look by the year end. it’s exciting.

if delpo wins del ray he’ll be into top 100! wooooot…go, go, go

but tipsy needs an atp trophy. would also be happy for him to win. even though tipsy winning would mean delpo wouldn’t quite be into top 100 as the finalist, i dont think. doing math in my head. not good.

janko said he has “positive jealousy.” about nole’s win over federer. i think that’s motivation? haha, tipsy.: )

ps. Kimmi, i dunno either. not much tennis today. maybe a lot of them had to be on an plane and can’t hang out and bask on the beach in acapulco. like ferrer…he’s off to join team “hotness” in belgium. poor belgium v mighty spain.

delpo i notice isn’t on the argentine team. but tipsy is due back in serbia i think.

wonder if Kimberly got tickets for the semi or final. Kimberly? : )


Kimmi Says:

aaagh contador, just realised i said brazil above…no, acapulco is in mexico! ah,missing some morning tennis.

ferrer with a great start of the year..win in auckland, semi at the AO and a title in acapulco. great start!!


dari Says:

No, kimmi, it WON’T be tipsy first title ;)


dari Says:

And As far as the tournaments in Dubai and doha, Sunday is like monday there (not a holy day, beginning of week), so I understand the saturday final. As for the acapulco, I don’t know why its Saturday final!

jane Says:

Congrats to Ferrer the terrier. Not sure about Nico; he usually does well on that early South American clay swing, but then during the Masters events in Eurpoe he never seems to perform quite as well – don’t know why that is? But it is a pattern I am pretty sure.

contador, you used to be so keen on Nole, but he has lost his flavour for you now? I hope not. ;) Fed is one unique player but even when he does go, which will not be after at least the next Olympics, probably longer, there are so many others, and maybe some you will enjoy as much or nearly as much. But he is still here and at the top, so no need to lament just yet. Save the hair tearing for when he reallly hangs it up.


Kimmi Says:

dari – just checkesd on his profile. it will be the first title if he wins. he reached 2 final before

2010 s-Hertogenbosch

2009 Moscow

you were right in the first place. hope for delpo to win though..


dari Says:

Oh and he doesn’t show up till about 3:30 in the box.
Vagabond! Love your little poem


jane Says:

lol dari, wish I knew what he was saying? Seems like a crazy candid camera TV show or something!


Kimmi Says:

shexy delpo! ha-ha


dari Says:

oh, kimmi! i know that tipsy has yet to win a title, i wasn’t correcting that, i was saying it wont be his first title cause i want delpo to win! i wanted you to rephrase and say it “would/could” be his first title, not WILL be!


Kimmi Says:

thanks dari, lol i got it all wrong. go delpo!

OK, delpo/tipsy on court warming up.


Kimmi Says:

haha who is the umpire, the voice seem to be coming from really far..


Kimmi Says:

delpo is just pushing the ball…wake up


jane Says:

Tipsy likes to be a “giant killer”, that David vs. goliath thing. And like conty, I wouldn’t mind if Tipsy won here since he has never ever won an ATP title whereas Delpo has a slam! But I would be equally happy for Delpo. So let the best man today win. I am assuming it will be Delpo; he is just on another level.


Kimmi Says:

delpo is not himself today AGAIN..just like his match with roddick and verdasco.


Eric Says:

Tipsa with the first break, would not have called that. I hope he can get his first title ever here.


Kimmi Says:

apparently delpo said he feels very tired, I know he has played three weeks in a row, and went deep in all tournaments…definetly feels like something is wrong. hope there is no injury.

why these US tournaments dont have hawk eye? some close call making players frustrated.


Kimmi Says:

umpire sounds much better, probably the mike was not working earlier.


contador Says:

LOL tipsaaaa. he really gave that ump a piece of his mind!

delpo looking sluggish to start. but he frequently appears that way.

jane- wrote a couple paragraphs to you on why i am “keen” on djoko…and how it’s is a temporary “blackout” not “blacklist” for me when he plays federer…then my computer crashed getting on a stream.

more later…

this match could heat up! unless delpo will fold…


Kimmi Says:

break! yay! delpo warming up! lets hope he keeps it going..

for delpo, it is very important he wins this match today, methink!


Kimmi Says:

yeah, the mike was not working..thats why! fergus murphy back on business :)


contador Says:

microphone wasn’t working. i thought a fan screamed out the score.

oh incredible stretch get from delpo!!

how frustrating for tipsy


dari Says:

Well, we’re back on serve! Hope delpo can pick up the energy! Vamos!
And yes, the us needs to get Hawkeye, especially at a 500 like Memphis.


dari Says:

No Lo creo! Delpo breaks. Now just hold delpo, hold!


Kimmi Says:

tipsa gave away the berak with series of errors. aaagh, reminds me of federer yesterday..delpo happy, tipsa not so much!


Kimmi Says:

berak ha-ha “break”


Kimmi Says:

delpooooo! 0-40..what the??


dari Says:

Ah! Too many little steps to much wind!


dari Says:

Ventaja delpo


Kimmi Says:

back to duece AGAIN..concentrate!


dari Says:

That’s a good point for tips. Wish it would have gone the other way though! Vamos


dari Says:

Well, that’s how you win ugly- this set at least!


jane Says:

Feel sad for Tipsy in losing that set. But Delpo fought it out


Kimmi Says:

eventually..what a game! now tipsa will not be happy to let delpo win 5 straight games.


contador Says:

wow that was tough for delpo to get that set. pretty bad from both. delpo serving pretty awful that game for set.

this could go 3


Cherry Says:

I was rooting for Federer. Unfortunately, Djokovic played better this time. Congratulations to Djokovic for winning the title. http://www.tennisround.com


steve-o Says:

Great job for Del Potro to win the first set.


Kimmi Says:

that was a poor miss by delpo..soo close!


contador Says:

i mean delpo often appears lethargic but if tipsy cant win here….please.

not sure who i am for…..the crowd is for delpo.

hahaha so bad. delpo should lose but i don’t know. tipsy willing to donate point too. who wants to win?


blank Says:

Scary stuff from DelPo. He is obviously so tired and just not feeling it…but wins the 1st set basically sleep-walking!!

DelPo’s da man!!


Kimmi Says:

wild shots from tipsa..delpo just needs to hang in there…

another error..


jane Says:

Yep, looks like whoever wins will win ugly. Gilbert would be proud. Lol. ;)


Kimmi Says:

delpo still has the energy to bring those FH..few more games delpo..few more!


contador Says:

i dunno, he’s sucking air, leaning over his tennis racket. was saying something to his box.

delpo looks like he could retire at any minute

the crowd willing him on.

arrrrrrrrrggggggh


Kimmi Says:

contador – no way he retires,,did u see those FHs. that is delpo for you..so many times in 2009 he has looked like falling down but he wins the matches in the end.


contador Says:

hahahaa that’s his strategy. fool his opponent into thinking he’ll fall over


Kimmi Says:

oh no! double fault! Ok delpo, three more games


jane Says:

There is the title, with that break. Delpo has always had that tendency to sometimes to look tired but keep winning. Maybe it is just how he vents? But talking to his box seems unusual. Poor Tipsa: always the bridesmaid. Hope he gets a title this year.


blank Says:

contador,
The way Tipsy is crumbling, no need to trick him I guess. Hope DelPo can finish this off without anymore drama. That would do wonders to his confidence :-)


dari Says:

With thzat break delpo could just put all his energy into his own service games, not work crazy hard on tipsy’s and take home the title. Easier said than done of course. Go delpo!


jane Says:

That said, Delpo must be truly tired, as Kimmi says. He has played 3 straight weeks. Good for him to get this far! If he can hold on, the title is his, but Tipsa will naturally keep fighting for the break,


blank Says:

oh…oh..more drama!


Kimmi Says:

wow, so tense this match..delpo needs to hold here!


blank Says:

Tipsy will just not allow DelPo to get broken even if DelPo gives up and wants to.


blank Says:

Tipsarvec: 1/12 break chances converted


contador Says:

LOL! blank. i was thinking that


Kimmi Says:

HOLD! blank, i agree. tipsa is helping out delpo here!


Eric Says:

Wow, what a turn-around. Tipsa was kicking Delpo’s pants and then I go out for lunch and discover he has given away not one, not two, but three breaks. Shameful…


dari Says:

Oh, nice 2nd serve delpo!


Kimmi Says:

one more delpo!


jane Says:

Yep, that is the important stat for Tipsa to mull over on the plane home – break chances missed!


dari Says:

Ok, palito. Only have to put the last bit of energy into the service game! You can do it!


contador Says:

can’t believe it. i dunno. tipsy has to be thinking this is his chance to get his first atp title.

but important for delpo to as a comeback.

delpo has a chance to serve for the match. almost seems unfair if he wins, he’s not played to his level at all but tipsy had his chances…still does.

can delpo serve this out?


Kimmi Says:

first point is important..way to go delpo


Kimmi Says:

and second!


Kimmi Says:

wow! what an ace to get at this point in the match!


Eric Says:

Ugh… I don’t dislike Delpo, but Tipsa could and should have won this match. But he did what he always does and folded mentally for the middle half of the match. That’s not the way to win.


jane Says:

Congrats to Delboy! Not sure what that match said about his form; however, this win will good for rankings and confidence going into the two US hardcourt masters, where we would expect him to excell given the surface, and his history.


stu Says:

Awww, tears, delpo?


contador Says:

ah he’s kissing his wrist * happy * so happy for delpo but how bad from janko.

vamos Juan!! you are back in the top 100!!!!

yay Kimmi, dari!!


Kimmi Says:

congrats delpo! so tired even to celebrate there..

well, the win today is very good for delpo. he still has a game.

still got sometime to go before he can challenge the big guys!

two weeks rest before IW should do him good. no davis cup just relaxing!

good luck for the rest of the season.


dari Says:

Felicidades to delpo!


blank Says:

DelPo’s Ranking:
End of Jan 2011: Rank # 485
End of Feb 2011: Rank # 85

Spectacular!!


jane Says:

Exactly Kimmi. Now he can rest on his laurels for a couple of weeks, do a bit of training and strategizing. Good for Delpo to break back into the top hundred.


dari Says:

the kisses of the wrist almost killed me!
This is just what delpo needs. Eric- yes, it was horrible from janko’s end, but all delpo is going to take from this is positives.
Rest rest rest delpo, hit the courts in the heat a few days cause IW and Miami are gonna be hot, too.
Sorry to tips.
Wow, more composed and happy than I expected in his speech!


grendel Says:

excellent to see Delpo’s won title. Pretty envious of you lot to have been able to see him. Still, there’s IW quite soon, and hopefully he’ll be evn better and we can see how he shapes up against the big boys.


Kimmi Says:

aaaarrgh crazy! just about forgetting to let delpo speak..

why? he always has to ask to speak spanish to his fans. crazy people.

congrats delpo one more time!


contador Says:

blank!! it is “spectacular” and it meant so much to him. he had tears and was kissing his right wrist.

thank-you everybody. how happy i am for that big sweetheart!

though, as a match is was pretty bad from both. but juan said it, “i got lucky.”

ajde janko! keep trying. ( was surprised he didn’t have a title yet when dari mentioned it. )


dari Says:

Umm, I coulda put a better trophy ceremony in my backyard, awkward!
In any case, yay to all the delpo lovers on here, he got the win that’s all that matters. Still has work to do, but a title under the belt is great! Does the winner get that Porsche?


blank Says:

contador, I am hoping DelPo can get back his US Open title! That will be awesome! I might slightly change my mind if he is facing Fed in the finals though ;-)


Kimmi Says:

aaargh! i missed the kissing of the wrist :( must be typing something here. oh well, all the best!

me too blank! that was one of the matches that federer lost that i wasnt sad!


contador Says:

Kimmi, he got to speak to the spanish an interviewer on court..to the side.. before they prestented the trophy….then my stream cut out.

but at least he got to speak to his spanish speaking fans, they just didn’t let us hear. i like to hear players in their native language. even if i don’t understand every word the energy in their voice goes up. ; )


Kimmi Says:

contador, i saw the one with english and spanish media but that is dufferent, fans in the stadium cant hear that.

but what i saw after they presented his trophy, they somehow didnt ask him to speak, janko spoke just after his trophy. why not delpo? he had to ask the presenter if he could speak to his spanish fans, the presenter then said “oh one more thing” after almost closing the ceremony. it was kind of awkward!


steve-o Says:

Yay Del Potro!


dari Says:

blank, kimmi- i agree with your feeling a little torn in a delpo/federer match. i would still have to go for fed cause he’s old balls and delpo is just a babe and will have more chances. could manage happiness for delpo if he won, still.
ah! im not sad fed played so bad in dubai now. all is well!


contador Says:

grrrrrrrr. that makes me mad when they don’t give delpo the mic time to thank his supporters in the crowd!! didn’t realize that, Kimmi. knuckleheads…what’s wrong with people?

not me, blank. for some odd reason ( really i think i know but it’s a long boring explanation so i spare you ) i don’t mind delpo beating federer in a GS. strangely found myself cheering him on and watched every minute, eyes wide open.

i did want to tell jane why i do like nole’s tennis ( just had enough watching him beat fed atm? ) 2 paragraphs of all about novak djokovic lost in computer crash. it was pretty much what i was raving about from what i saw in the AO final. now my “bad head cold” excuse isn’t flying; being pulled out of my tennis trance. something about an oscar party. and i’ve seen nothing this year except meet the fockers sequel and shutter island. the latter was pretty creepy.

really nice words Tennis Vagabond @ 1:34 pm

me too, dari. all is better now about federer playing **** in dubai final. on to IW. : ) lol on fed “cause he’s “old balls…”


Huh Says:

SPECTACULARE DELPOTRO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D


Huh Says:

Djoko UPSET Fed??????????

We must change the dictionary meaning of ‘upset’ then!
