Rafael Nadal collapsed onto the red clay at Roland Garros for a ninth time this spring after defeating heavy favorite Novak Djokovic to claim the French Open title. Despite Nadal’s winning record in Paris, he’d been plagued by injuries over the past few years, and tennis fans had started to wonder if he could continue competing with Djokovic and Andy Murray. Now, after winning...

WIMBLEDON: That Wasn’t an End for Roger Federer. It was the Start of his Agassi Phase

  We are too fast to bring in the next generation, and now, in the case of Roger Federer, too quick to kick out the old. So many people have characterized Federer’s five-set loss to Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final Sunday as his last, best chance. I have something to say about that: No. Way. Where most people saw the end for Federer, I saw a beginning. Federer is now moving...

Federer the "Betterer" and his new Wilson Pro Staff

Tennis fanatics and the media have been speculating about Roger Federer's switch to a larger, black matte Wilson frame ever since he tested it out at the end of last year. The former number one made the change permanent this year and almost swung his way to a record eight Wimbledon Championship over the weekend. Wilson in partnership with the 17-time Grand Slammer recently announced...

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...

Roger Federer may not have won Wimbledon this year as he hoped, but he still gets to go home a winner. The 32-year-old had his family in London watching him in the finals as he fell to Novak Djokovic in five exciting sets on Sunday, and you know he appreciated the support. What was cool […]

Wimbledon finals set, Federer takes aim at #18

The men’s and women’s finals are set at Wimbledon, and much promise and drama are in store. Petra Kvitova, who has proven this year that she finds another gear on the grass of the All England Club, convincingly defeated countrywoman Lucie Safarova in straight sets, a result I fully expected given her performance in the tournament thus far. In the other semifinal, Eugenie Bouchard...

Wimbledon semis set, Federer resurgent

The weekend drama is set at the All England Club, and Wimbledon has not failed to deliver some serious doses of drama and unpredictability. Shortly after my last piece went up on this site, perennial favorite turned occasional disappointment Serena Williams lost in the third round to Alize Cornet of France. Coupled with the exit of John Isner on the men’s side, there were zero...

Roger Federer Didn’t Realize He Won Semifinal At Gerry Weber Open (Video)

Roger Federer had a bit of a senior moment Saturday. The 17-time Grand Slam winner was at match point during his semifinal match against Kei Nishikori in the Gerry Weber Open. Nishikori backhanded a return volley into the net, which gave Federer the win and a chance to play in the championship match. This was apparent to everyone at the court, except for Federer that is. Instead...
