ContraHas suffered wrist and ankle injuries.

Australia,for a relatively small nation of just over 20 million,has produced an incredible array of hugely talented tennis players.

Pronatural talent

Contrainjuries and possible retirement

The only sport that comes a fairly distant second to my love of motorsport, is tennis. There can be no denying that summer is upon us when Wimbledon fever hits the tv screens! So it was with pleasure that my 2 favourite tennis players reached this year’s Wimbledon final. Having thankfully...

ProA really nice guy

Contradid not win Wimbledon

Gday mate" said Pat Rafter when I met him at a Tennis open day in Tunbridge Wells about 4 years ago. I thought to myself,"typical Aussie.Corny lines". It was the opening of a new Tennis Centre of which my Father in Law is the manager and I got to hit a couple of balls over the net to him. I felt...

Contrainconsistent, injuries

Pat Rafter the Australian who lost last year’s to Agassi but this year somehow managed to beat him, in a game where it seemed as though Agassi would come out on top. But the player who performed badly last year due to injury showed why he is regarded as a top player. Rafter never gave up...

“Serve and volley!!”

published 29/10/2000

ProServe andd volley master

ContraN/A

The serve and volley king Pat Rafter is a joy to watch. He does his wicked topspin serve and then charges in ready to pounce on any loose ball. He was desperately unlucky to lose the Wimbledon final to Pete Sampras having had chances to go 2 sets up, but he wasted it. He is equally good on all...

Contralost

Patrick Rafter To come back from injury and to play so well, to be 4-1 up in the tie break, and be one set up, he should have really won, if he had played against any other player. But, Sampras is no other player, he his the greatest grass court player ever, and therefore he lost. But, Rafter...

“Grasscourt game”

published 19/07/2000

Patrick Rafter's excellent performance this year helped to rescue the grasscourt game. The bias is very much against the all-court game today because of the predominance of clay and the "beautiful" game is in threat of extinction. The early exit of many of the highly ranked players on clay...
