This year showed a departure from the big name tennis players and allowed players outside the top ranks to break through. There wasn’t a dominant player in 2014; no one player on the men or women’s side of the game won multiple grand slam titles. But there was a dominant country...

Earlier, I said that he probably had the easiest path to the later rounds, and that quarter...
