Tennis star Bautista Agut dribbling soccer ball



Check out this fantastic video of Bautista Agut dribbling a soccer ball and pulling off a nice trick on cue. 

BA played soccer at a high level as a child. He did not fully commit to tennis until the age of 14. Very late by today's standards.

Although many pro tennis players did play soccer growing up, most of them made tennis their main sport at age 10 or even earlier. Very rare a person can become a top tennis pro starting later in life. 

Bautista Agut is obviously incredibly talented.

NOVAK DJOKOVIC LOOKS TO MAKE A PUSH AT BNP PARIBAS OPEN


Djokovic to make a strong push at BNP PARIBAS OPEN

Novak Djokovic looks to make a strong push at BNP Paribas Open.

Recently working with coach Radek Stepanek and Andre Agassi, the pressure is on for Novak to have a good performance at this weeks BNP Paribas Open.

The draw is missing one very notable name in Rafael Nadal. Nadal is out with a hip injury and his return to the tour is still unknown.

Novak himself is returning from an elbow injury that sidelined him for the last 5 months of 2017. His return at the Australian Open was uneventful, losing in the round of 16 to up and comer Chung Hyeon of south Korea.

In watching Novak on the practice court today, his strokes looked like the Novak we all know and love, however he didn't seem well. Consistently blowing his nose and asking for a towel, Novak looked as if he was fighting off a cold. Lets hope it is nothing too serious and he is able to give his best effort this week.

Federer comes off his defense of his Australian Open title and is the favorite to take the BNP Paribas Open although there are several players who have a legitimate shot at stopping Federer's run. Stay tuned for exclusive pic, videos and behind the scenes look at the BNP Paribas Open.

FEDERER CLOSING IN ON #1 RANKING

Further solidifying him as tennis's "greatest of all time", Federer could become the oldest male tennis player to reach the #1 ranking.  Federer would need to reach the semi-finals at this weeks ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam.

Trailing Nadal in the standings by just 155 points, Roger knew this was his opportunity to make a move. Federer is playing the ABN AMRO for his ninth time.


Admittedly, Roger never expected to win the Australian Open and have a shot at regaining the #1 spot. Saying in his press conference ahead of the tournament "I actually thought I'd be home in Febuary and going into the mountains. I did not expect to win Melbourne."

"But now all options are open. It would again be a wonderful adventure if I could become number 1 again, a big surprise. Then I knew Rotterdam was an options."

"My Team and I are enjoying the challenge. We're going for it"

Roger will face qualifier Ruben Behelmans in the first round.

ABN AMRO is welcoming some of tennis biggest names. With a wild card given to Federer, it will not be an easy road to the semi-finals. Standing in his way will be Alexander Zverev, Stan Wawrinka, and #9 seed Giles Muller.
