VIDEO VAULT: Del Potro back hitting backhands, Raonic practicing with Serena and Nestor

There were a couple of videos that made the rounds today and they were pretty noteworthy. The first one shows Juan Martin del Potro hitting backhands. He's basically pushing the ball to protect his surgically repaired left wrist. It's a start. I, personally, can't wait for the BIG LUG to return. #biglugluv y'all.

Wimbledon finals set, Federer takes aim at #18

The Young And The Relentless

Novak Djokovic, pictured above, is the odd man out in Friday’s Wimbledon gentlemen’s singles semifinals. At age 27, Djokovic is neither the old man Roger Federer is, nor is he part of the “young gun” generation led by Grigor Dimitrov and Milos Raonic. For the most part, Wednesday’s quarterfinals at Wimbledon — which followed victories by Simona Halep and Eugenie Bouchard...

French Open slows down, test ahead for Monfils

Things have started to slow down a little bit at Roland Garros as we move to get the semifinals set. Novak Djokovic bludgeoned his way past Milos Raonic in one quarterfinal, and in a somewhat unexpected turn, Ernests Gulbis took down Tomas Berdych in the other. Djokovic’s result surprised me not at all; Gulbis’s quite a bit. They way that he tore through Berdych really just highlights...
