SIGHTING: Tennis ballers by the water!

 After a tough Wimbledon, Rafael Nadal stole some time away in Ibiza and brought along some questionable fashion decisions. Monochromatic pink was very hit or miss with the Rafantics. I'm not even sure what to call this look. Ana Ivanovic has been looking relaxed on vacation even though she's currently without a coach. Good sign I guess. It's funny she's trying to...

Where most people saw the end for Federer, I saw a beginning. Federer is now moving...

Wimbledon wrap-up: oh, so close for Federer

Yesterday’s Wimbledon final was the best that I have seen in about five years, minus the stirring spectacle we had last year of an entire nation behind one man attempting to capture a title. The fact that Andy Murray easily dispatched Novak Djoković was beside the point; a British man (a Scot, but still) had won Wimbledon at last. One can only hope that the wait for the next American...
