Wimbledon: Federer, Murray cruise into 3rd round in straight sets

LONDON -- With a casual between-the-legs shot, Roger Federer displayed the magic that makes him so special on Centre Court at Wimbledon. In a vintage performance from the grass-court master, Federer blew away American Sam Querrey 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 on Thursday to reach the third round and crank up his bid for a record eighth title at the All England Club. And, for good measure, Federer...

Murray coasts to straight-set win over Haase at Wimbledon

LONDON (AP) This was more like a gentle workout than a Grand Slam match for Andy Murray.

Wimbledon Lookahead: Zverev tries to join exclusive group

LONDON (AP) Since 2006, only five teenagers have managed to reach the men's third round at Wimbledon - and three of them went on to become Grand Slam champions: Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Marin Cilic.

Murray plays through heat, reaches 2nd round at Wimbledon

LONDON (AP) It's not necessarily the heat, and it's not necessarily the humidity. When it comes to playing through high temperatures at Wimbledon, a tournament known more for its rain delays than its sunny disposition, it's about keeping the points short. ''Because the points are much quicker, you don't feel it as much,'' said Andy Murray, the 2013 Wimbledon champion. ''But you...

Kim Sears, Andy Murray’s Wife, Is Queen Of The WAGs At Wimbledon (Photos)

Andy Murray definitely found himself an ace with Kim Sears. The British tennis star and his beautiful wife have been together since 2005, and they tied the knot in April.

Wimbledon Pre-Draw Preview: Murray Seeks A New Moment

When Stan Wawrinka won his second major a few weeks ago in Paris, he forever banished the possibility that his only major title would come against a physically compromised opponent in the final.

Andy Murray writes staunch defense of coach Amelie Mauresmo

Andy Murray is coached by Amelie Mauresmo. Not a typical coupling in men's tennis to have a woman coaching a superstar male. Murray advanced to the semifinals of the French Open on Thursday with a four-set win over Spain's David Ferrer. He will face world No. 1 Novak Djokovic next in a semifinal. Pretty good for a guy being coached by a woman. However, Murray in his column for L...
