In the men’s section, the top four seeds each have designs on the title.

Will it be Rafael Nadal, last man standing, on July 3, 2011 making it a treble of French Open and Wimbledon crowns in the same season, emulating his 2008 and 2010 feats—further etching in stone comparisons to the marvellous Bjorn Borg?

Somdev scores a ton

The Ton Is Here!

He’s done it! Finally!

Somdev Devvarman has cracked the top 100 on the ATP tour. Another milestone in his fledgling career.

He becomes just the second Indian male player in a decade or so to be ranked amongst the top 100. Leander Paes was the last Indian male to be ranked so, achieving that distinction in 1999.

Somdev’s rise to the list of centurions has not been meteoric; rather it has been steady but sure.

He is now ranked 96 in the world. However, he is unlikely to be perched there for too long; he was thwarted in his bid to defend last year’s accumulated points.More on that later.
