  • Tomas Berdych led Novak Djokovic 6-3 in the first-set tiebreaker of their quarterfinal on Friday evening in Toronto. Berdych had two serves coming, and a morose Djokovic, who had blown a 5-3 lead earlier in the set and made twice as many errors as winners, looked ready to throw in the towel and start over in the second. Over the previous 15 minutes, the world No. 1 had lost his timing completely; some of his serves were barely breaking the 70-m.p.h. mark.  I think you know what happened next. Berdych began by double faulting. A bad sign, certainly, but when he followed it with

It was a seminal cultural moment, the Battle of the Sexes. It may not have happened at all were it not for a groundswell of public interest in tennis, created when pros like King finally

  • “This year, the start of the season has been probably even better than 2015 in terms of results, and in terms of how I feel,” Novak Djokovic said immediately after he won the Miami Open last week. But his March wasn’t perfect, despite the two Masters titles and his dazzling 12-0 record. Djokovic is an 11-time Grand Slam champion and an earnest spokesman for the game, and the 28-year-old Serbian has a growing reputation as an athlete with a social conscience. But he suffered a damaging blow when he was savaged as an unenlightened sexist during the most recent flare-up over equal prize

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
