PLAYERS: Serena Williams
By Ros Satar   (July 1, 2013) WIMBLEDON – As if last Wednesday was not enough fun for the tennis gods, they toyed with the seemingly natural order of things just a little more on Round 4 Monday.   Possibly one of the best days usually on the tennis schedule, Wimbledon looks to put all [...]

Annabel Croft Calls Serena "Huge"

Clive Brunskill/Getty Images EuropeWhen tennis broadcaster Annabel Croft referred to reigning French Open champion Serena Williams as 'huge', she could have been talking about a number of positive things.

Serena buckled mentally, physically

This is the impossible. It doesn't happen because it can't happen. Now, it did happen. Serena Williams lost in the fourth round at Wimbledon on Monday, 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 to Sabine Lisicki. It's not just that Serena lost, which seems nearly impossible enough. The bigger issue is this: For maybe the first time ever, Williams buckled, both mentally and physically. Both, at...

It was the latest in a string of upsets that has jolted the...

Does tennis have a new rivalry?

I'm starting to dream of a Serena-Sloane Wimbledon final. Can you imagine? The new rivalry of tennis? After they both went along with, and then later debunked, the whole feelgood story about their mentor-student relationship? After Sloane Stephens beat Serena Williams at the Australian Open? After Serena took a shot at Sloane, theoretically, on Twitter? After Sloane called...

Wimbledon, it feels like old times

What a year it's becoming for the thirty-something crowd at Wimbledon. Led by 31-year-old Serena Williams and 35-year-old Tommy Haas, nine of the 32 players remaining at the year's third Grand Slam are 30 or older. That's the most in the round of 16 at a Grand Slam since the 1977 Australian Open and ties the Wimbledon record in the open era, first set in 1975. All...

Stephens loses her way ... again

The learning curve is painful and cruel, and you can't avoid it. It's as if you're driving down the road and your car automatically searches out and finds every last bump and pothole, even cliff. For Sloane Stephens, American tennis hopeful, the problem is that you don't know for sure which bumps you'll eventually figure out how to clear easily and which ones...
