LONDON (AP) — In 2011, Novak Djokovic figured out the grass at Wimbledon and found himself holding the trophy at the All England Club for the first time.

Tour culture different for women

It was 7-6 in the tiebreaker Sunday at Wimbledon, and Novak Djokovic was about to lose. "Moment of Truth,'' he yelled, trying to pressure and intimidate the, well, the kid on the other side of the net. It was the middle Sunday at Wimbledon, the day off. The Bryan brothers got off their practice court at the same time Juan Martin del Potro got off his, and they took...

Wimbledon field full of unknown names

There they were on the practice courts during Wimbledon's traditional off day, all preparing for whatever Week 2 might have in store. Not unusual to see Novak Djokovic, a six-time Grand Slam champion, getting ready for the fourth round, but not far away was Jerzy Janowicz, winner of a grand total of six matches at major tournaments before this one.

Can Tomas Berdych Upset the Immovable Object that is Novak Djokovic?

  (July 1, 2013) For all the mayhem that this Wimbledon brought, we have chalked in the quarterfinals for the top half of the draw, and the most-hyped match will definitely be the one involving the World No. 1.

Wimbledon Rewind: Thoughts on the Men’s Quarterfinals

Thank God, not David Cameron. The top two men stayed on course for a Sunday final, although in dramatically contrasting fashion.  Joining them in the semifinals are two men who never have advanced this far at Wimbledon. Closer than it looked:  The straight-sets scoreline of Novak Djokovic’s victory over Tomas Berdych suggested yet another routine win for the world No. 1.  In...

Juan Martin Del Potro Looks to Further Improve on his Best Wimbledon Ever

(July 3, 2013) For years now, I have dismissed Juan Martin Del Potro on grass. And it wasn’t without reason. He is very tall and has long legs, and the low bounce on grass makes it difficult for him to get down to hit balls comfortably. His movement on the surface has never been great. Most of all, though, even when he played his best tennis, the results just weren’t there on...

The grass snake stings, then smiles. Monday got manic in a hurry with a titanic upset in the women’s draw, only to settle down into more predictable outcomes for most of the day.  Catch up on any of the fourth-round action that you may have missed with the daily Wimbledon rewind.
