A new tennis season has just begun. Last week, the first official tournaments began in Brisbane, Doha, Shenzhen, Auckland and at the Hopman Cup. Among the most anticipated players, there were Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and Serena Williams, but also Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, Angelique Kerber and all the other top players.
Tennis World would like to recall the first tennis week of 2017 with the five best matches played: Julia Goerges d. Caroline Wozniacki 1-6, 6-3, 6-4, Auckland. Caroline Wozniacki was defeated in the quarter-finals in New Zealand by the German Goerges, after being ahead 6-1, 3-0.
Dimitrov's ride towards the title in Brisbane included the great victory in the quarter-finals against the Austrian Thiem, after three high-level sets. The Bulgarian then was able to also defeat Raonic and Nishikori in the semis and final respectively, to win the tournament.
Then there was the sudden fall and Raonic who raised his level. Overall a great match. Novak Djokovic d.
Andy Murray 6-3, 5-7, 6-4, Doha. The first clash between the top two tennis players was won by Djokovic at the end of an intense match that lasted three sets, with errors on both sides and also with a high level of tennis moments.
Alexander Zverev d. Roger Federer 7-6 (1), 6-7 (4), 7-6(4). The match between Federer and Zverev, valid for the challenge between Switzerland and Germany at the Hopman Cup, was anything but a show performance.
The two players delighted crowds, media and fans and certainly the match was one of the best matches of the first week of tennis! Source: YouTube .
