  • Zverev should not be sorry for his win over Federer at ATP Finals
  • WATCH—Roger Federer press conference after loss to Alexander Zverev: “First of all, I’d like to apologize,” Sascha Zverev told a booing crowd in London’s 02 Arena immediately after his 7-5, 7-6 (5) win over Roger Federer at the ATP Finals on Saturday. The audience wasn’t moved; the boos continued. What sin had Zverev committed—aside from knocking their favorite of the tournament? Serving at 3-4 in the second set tiebreaker, he had stopped play in the middle of a rally because he saw a ball boy drop a ball onto the court behind Federer. For a player to halt play was unusual, but if

  • Who will advance on semifinal Saturday in London? Roger Federer vs. Alexander Zverev Federer and Zverev have each improved through the week in London. Federer looked lost in his opening-match defeat to Kei Nishikori, while Zverev looked despondent in his loss to Novak Djokovic. By Thursday and Friday, though, both men had found a more confidently aggressive form. Zverev, in particular, was unusually upbeat in his semifinal-clinching win over John Isner on Friday. More importantly, he served unusually well, firing 18 aces in two sets. Zverev as a servebot is an entirely different, and scarier, proposition than the one his opponents have

  • Court Report: Looking ahead to the Nitto ATP Finals in London Two weeks ago, the Nitto ATP Finals in London looked as if it would be the sight of a photo finish for the year-end No. 1 ranking. Rafael Nadal, who dominated the clay season, and Novak Djokovic, who dominated everything after, were separated by only a few dozen points in their race for the top spot. Unfortunately for lovers of suspense—i.e., sports fans—that race ended it before it ever reached the homestretch.

  • Marin Cilic has everything in tennis—except the ability to close
  • Tennis is awash in dramatic moments, but this one was different. Very different. It occurred during what many consider the peak moment of the tennis year, the Wimbledon final. And the author and subject of the moment was not running, jumping, winning or losing a point. He was sitting in a chair. Marin Cilic, his face half-buried in a towel, was trying to stem the flow of tears. As it become evident that something was wrong, a murmur ran through the crowd. Legions of television viewers around the world suddenly began to feel uncomfortable. They didn’t exactly know what they were watching,

  • Simona Halep—much-loved, often-tormented—must fight harder than ever
  • Simona Halep stood on the trophy presentation dais in the molten light of a gorgeous June afternoon at Stade Roland Garros in Paris. She had just lost the 2017 French Open final despite having led Jelena Ostapenko, a 20-year-old who had yet to win a WTA title, by a set and 3–0. The runner-up, wearing a simple white pullover with green trim, was still trying to process her dispiriting collapse against a longshot underdog—Halep’s second loss in a French Open final. But wherever her mind was, it returned as she addressed the crowd. “Well, bonjour everyone,” she said, composed to the point

  • Can Angelique Kerber put a disappointing 2017 season behind her?
  • It was the worst-case scenario, and the chilling part was how predictably it had come to pass on a gloomy, rain-plagued day at the 2017 US Open. Angelique Kerber, the defending champion, was knocked out in the first round by unseeded 19-year-old Naomi Osaka. She was not just beaten, but crushed, 6–3, 6–1. It was one of the final lows in a year Kerber had embarked upon as master of all she surveyed. She began the season ranked No. 1 following a year in which she’d won her first two Grand Slam titles and dethroned Serena Williams. With this loss, Kerber

  • Robert Lansdorp and his coaching method have left a mark on the game
  • When Tracy Austin was about eight years old, her coach, Robert Lansdorp, put her through one of his patented “20 at the baseline” drills. This exercise required the prodigious youngster to hit 20 consecutive groundstrokes inside the lines with the coach feeding balls. If Austin missed, she had to start over. Lansdorp ran Austin ragged as her mother Jeanne looked on. But the spunky pupil finally completed the drill. “She was hyperventilating by the end,” says Lansdorp. “I said, ‘Next time, bring a paper bag, you can breathe into that.’” This brief nugget tells a great deal about all involved, especially Lansdorp, the

  • Three Who Need a Big End to the Season on the ATP World Tour
  • Jack Sock: Sock started off the year better than he could have hoped, but since the clay season started his results have been worse than anyone could have predicted. He lost in the first round at the US Open, Cincinnati, and French Open, and second round in Montreal and Wimbledon. This was supposed be the year Sock took a big step forward, as he’s well-adjusted to life on tour and he seemed to be coming into his own. Instead, he’s taken a surprising step back, and is about to get passed by the younger generation of Americans if he doesn’t

  • Passion—more than experimentation—will determine success of Laver Cup
  • Conceived by perhaps the most beloved figure ever to swing a racket, and created to honor the tennis legend for whom it is named, the Laver Cup has the pedigree to convince people that it’s not just another tennis exhibition. The interesting question is, does it even need to? The brainchild of Roger Federer and his managers at sports agency Team 8, the Laver Cup aims to carve out a unique niche in the tennis landscape—much like the one profitably created by the Hopman Cup, which has become a popular fixture on the calendar at New Year’s. The inaugural edition will be played

  • As the Inaugural Laver Cup Approaches, The World is Catching Up to Europe Fast
  • It’s no secret that Europeans have dominated men’s tennis for well over a decade now. Nearly every big tournament since 2003 has been won by a member of the all European “Big Five”, which means few big titles have been left for the rest of the world. While the inaugural Laver Cup, a competition pitting Europe versus the rest of the world, may have been a massive mismatch had it started ten years ago, it appears that it will be a much more even matchup going forward than many may have thought.When Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray and Wawrinka fade out

  • Is Kevin Anderson’s Apperance in the US Open Finals a Fluke or a Sign of Things to Come?
  • With Djokovic, Murray, Wawrinka, Nishikori and Raonic all missing the US Open with injuries, and Nadal and Federer in the same half, it’s not surprising that there’s only one superstar playing in the US Open men’s final. Kevin Anderson managed to take advantage of an open draw and blast his way into the finals, but the real question is if we’re headed for an era of the Kevin Anderson’s of the world making more major finals, continued Big-Four/Five dominance, or the “next gen” finally stepping up where it counts.Even if Djokovic, Murray and Wawrinka come back strong in 2018 and

What keeps you playing competitively on this tour? Andy: It’s been a love affair with tennis since I was 6 years old so I’m thankful for something like this where I can continue. It’s a fun atmosphere to play in. It’s fun to play in front of the fans but tennis is not my daily priority anymore so it’s nice to have this kind of outlet and still kind of pretend sometimes.

  • The First Ever Connecticut Open Debate
  • It's an election year here the U.S. and we've been subjected to way too many national debates but I think this is by far the best one of them all. With Caroline Wozniacki as the moderator, the candidates (Aga Radwanska, Roberta Vinci and Petra Kvitova) are asked hard-hitting questions in their quest to become President. The candidates unite in their dislike of Pokemon but the the pizza versus pasta topic pretty much goes off the rails. Many thanks to the folks at the Connecticut Open for putting this together.

  • He's Still Dominic Thiem
  • by JAMES HENRY CINCINNATI – Success hasn’t changed Dominic Thiem. The 22-year-old Austrian has been a rising star among ATP World Tour tennis players. He finished 2014 ranked 39th in the world. Last year, he was 20th. After claiming four titles so far this season, his ranking hit a career high, earning him a place among the coveted top 10. Along the way defeating Rafael Nadal on clay and Roger Federer on grass, he won the tournaments in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Acapulco, Mexico; Nice, France; and Stuttgart, Germany. “It’s not different at all. I’m the same person, and I will always be the same person. I

  • Nadal Makes Big Statement With Monte Carlo Title
  • Based on Rafael Nadal's form over the last couple of years, most of the phrases used to describe him went something like "past his prime", "his best days are behind him" or "he'll never win a major tournament again." But after his Monte Carlo title, it looks like Nadal will once again be a serious threat at Roland Garros. Sure he didn't beat Djokovic along the way, but his wins over Thiem, Wawrinka, Murray and Monfils were extremely impressive. Djokovic is still likely to go into the French Open as the heavy favorite (though another early loss in the Madrid

  • Djokovic Once Again On Track For All-Time Great Season
  • It seemed hard to imagine that Djokovic could be more dominant in 2016 than he was in his remarkable 2015 season. Last year Djokovic had one of the best seasons we've seen in the modern era, winning three out of four slams and a record six Masters titles. This will still be hard for Djokovic to replicate, but he's on the right track after winning the Australian Open and the Indian Wells/Miami double to start the year. He's so far ahead of the pack that it's conceivable he wins all four grand slams and six or seven Masters titles.Djokovic's closest
