Six-time Grand Slam champion, Boris Becker, has told Andy Murray he may never get a better chance to win the French Open.

The 45-year-old feels Murray must take advantage of problems for the big three – Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer –at Roland Garros later this month.

The world number three, who has repeatedly stated it takes him some time to make the transition to clay, was humiliated in only his second outing on the surface in 2013. His 6-1 6-2 defeat...

Rafael Nadal has played down his chances of winning a ninth Monte Carlo Masters title in a row, stating "everything in life finishes sometime".
The Spaniard has won 42 consecutive matches in Monaco and is well fancied to continue that run into next year.

Nadal goes into this year's event on a high after an excellent comeback from a serious knee injury. He has performed as if he has never been away in winning tournaments in Sao Paulo, Acapulco and Indian Wells....

World number six Tomas Berdych was given a going over by Nikolay Davydenko at the Barcelona Open before eventually seeing him off 3-6 7-5 6-4 to secure a spot in the last 16.

The 27-year-old dug deep to turn things around in the...

Sure as day follows night and spring follows winter, Rafael Nadal would sweep up during the clay court tennis season – until now.

The Spaniard saw his mammoth 46-match winning streak at the Monte Carlo Masters blown away by world number Novak Djokovic in a performance that suggests a sea change is afoot at the top of the men’s game.

There are, of course, extenuating circumstances, Nadal has been sidelined for seven months thanks to niggling injury problems in both...

If Novak Djokovic proved anything last Sunday is was that he can win the French Open crown this summer as a shocked Monte Carlo Masters crowd looked on while he dismantled clay king Rafael Nadal.

Djokovic, playing in only his fifth tournament of the season, must have known the scale of the challenge ahead of him. Nadal had won all eight previous Monte Carlo titles and with two clay trophies on his mantelpiece already this season was clear favourite in the betting world to clinch another....
