Roger Federer gives away the secret about playing on grass
After winning the Halle tournament for the record breaking eigth time Roger Federer revealed his secret about playing on grass:
“I think one big secret on grass is when to hit which shot and playing the score the right way,” Federer said. “You might be playing perfect but then you take a wrong decision and grass makes you pay for it all.”
Federer defeated Italy’s Andreas Seppi 7-6, 6-4 and looks to be ready for Wimbledon.
Angelique Kerber looks to be ready for Wimbledon as well by beating Karolina Pliskova for the Aegon Classic title three sets 6-7, 6-3, 7-6. (Bonus: See Karolina Pliskova’s tattoo)
“It was an amazing match, and perfect for a final,”the fourth-seeded Kerber said. “It will have given great confidence in my preparation (for Wimbledon).”
Andy Murray, proved that he is the king of Queens by winning the tournament for the fourth time in his career. Murray defeated South African Kevin Anderson in straight sets 6-3, 6-4. We would like to see that confidence go all the way to Wimbledon.
“I played better as the week went on. I came up with some great shots today and I had to play that way if I wanted to win,” Murray said. “You want to go into Wimbledon with grass matches under your belt. I’m playing better than I did in 2013 but it’s extremely difficult to win these events.”

Serena Williams has come to terms with her body
More news about Serena Williams. In an interview with Huffington Post she admitted that she has come to terms with her body:
“Most women athletes are pretty thin. I didn’t really know how to deal with it. I had to come to terms — as every teen and young adult does — with loving myself. I had to find different role models. But my body type is in style now, so I’m loving it!”
Noone ever told her that she has a great looking body?
