TENNIS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Wimbledon: Serena Williams has no rivalry

The sibling rivalry between the Williams sisters made headlines this weekend when they were set to face each other earlier today in the fourth round of Wimbledon. Despite Serena’s tough third-round match against Britain’s Heather Watson, which led ESPN’s experts to predict she would have a long match against her sister Venus, the sisters played for just over an hour, Serena...

The Way Forward For Rafael Nadal: Respecting Limits

Those who watched Pancho Gonzales, at age 41, win a Wimbledon match in 1969 with sets of 46 (!), 30, and 20 games might regard him as the greatest fighter men’s tennis has ever known. (That 1969 match with Charlie Pasarell helped usher in the era of the tiebreaker one year later, an interesting side note to that multi-day match.) Tennis fans who saw Jimmy Connors spill his tank...

John Isner could hardly believe it, either. What shaped up as another possible lengthy five-setter at Wimbledon for the winner of the longest match in tennis history -- Isner and U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic resumed their suspended third-round match at 10-all in the final set Saturday -- instead wrapped up rather quickly. Isner, a big-serving American seeded 17th, double-faulted...

She lost serve at 4-4 and watched Heather Watson serve for the match, but Serena was able to rescue herself and win, 7-5. She...

How can Rafael Nadal regain his dominance?

Rafael Nadal’s most recent loss at Wimbledon puts a sharper focus on his inconsistent level of play. Just in this last year, he has won two titles, lost another nine to both non-ranked and top 20 players at various rounds, and didn’t make it past the quarterfinals in both the Australian and French Opens. But going out in the second round at Wimbledon against unranked Dustin Brown...

Caroline Wozniacki gets downright surly during Wimbledon presser

One would think Caroline Wozniacki would be in a cheerier mood following her 6-1, 7-6 (6) victory over Denisa Allertova in the second round at Wimbledon, but the 24-year-old Danish superstar definitely was not her usual affable and friendly herself after the match. In fact, she got downright surly with the media — or at...Read More The post Caroline Wozniacki gets downright surly...
