Petra Kvitova is probably the most-talked-about woman in tennis right now, after the mind-blowing breakthrough season, which ended yesterday with a historic Fed Cup win.

Andy Murray Shanghai Rolex Masters title

Andy Murray has been showing some incredible results lately, winning three tournaments in as many weeks, including ATP Masters 1000 Tournament in Shanghai. This is a milestone achieved by only a few players. By defending the title in Shanghai, the British number one officially became the third-ranked player in ATP, and is likely to finish the year on the third place.

Well, of course many will say that Shanghai Rolex Masters field was not very strong, due to the absence of red-hot Djokovic, always strong Federer, as well as Soderling and Del Potro, and after Nadal, Fish and several other top players were ousted in earlier rounds, yet it can’t be used as a reason to diminish Murray’s achievement, and the tremendous form he showed during the last three weeks. The Scott should only regret that the top form visited him two weeks after the last Grand Slam tournament of 2011 was over, and three months ahead of the Australian Open 2012.

Novak Djokovic Celebrates Victory
