Five Sizzling Questions Facing Indian Tennis

The Wall Street Journal—at the start of the 2011 Australian Open—published an article titled Five Sizzling Tennis Questions.

The questions were:

 Are Rafael Nadal‘s injuries behind him?

What about Roger?

Who are the other challengers on the men’s side?

Is this the year of the Woz?

Is the women’s ranking system legitimate?

The answers to four of the questions are still up in the air.

Novak Djokovic’s Australian Open victory has given doubters more than a hint as to who’s not hanging to the coat-tails of the big guns—Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

There’s nothing more dangerous than a wounded or cornered tiger and Nadal was a wounded tiger who had been licking his wounds ever since he was diagnosed with acute tendinitis in his knees in 2009. After being out for the most part of 2009 and unable to defend his 2008 Wimbledon crown, Nadal decided that it was time to ration out his appearances in the clay court season this time around. A little bit of rest and recuperation for his much abused knees could do no harm!
