  • Milos Raonic is officially back: Raonic made his move into the top ten a couple of years ago, and appeared to be ready to rise even higher. A foot injury in early 2015 ruined his momentum, and he never really got back on track the rest of the year. He fell outside the top 10, and it looked like his career was suddenly heading in the wrong direction. Now it appears his decline in 2015 was just a minor blip, and that he's serious about making a run toward the top 5. Raonic was impressive on his way to the

  • Some Aussie Open Lessons
  • Djokovic's separation from the field is only growing: Heading into the Australian Open it was clear that Djokovic was the heavy favorite. He won 3 of the 4 grand slams in 2015, captured every big tournament at the end of the year, and routed Nadal in a tune up event to start off 2016. Looking back on the event, it's possible we underestimated just how far ahead of the field Djokovic is right now. Federer and Murray were simply outclassed by the world number one, and it's hard to imagine either beating him in a grand slam any time soon.

  • Andy Murray flailed at a backhand as he staggered into the doubles alley. His weight was moving sideways, and his feet were never set; not surprisingly, the ball flew long. After watching it sail, he turned to his player box, shook his head, and appeared to mutter, “Don’t say anything. It can’t help.” Murray’s words may have been downbeat, but it was hard to disagree with them. At this point, there doesn’t seem to be a solution, for the Scot or anyone else, to the man who was across the net from him, Novak Djokovic. On Sunday, Murray lost the Australian

That’s the question that comes to mind when trying to predict a winner in this year’s Australian Open men's final, between the No. 1 and 2 seeds, Djokovic and Murray. There’s a feeling, at least to me, that this could be Murray’s moment. First, Djokovic’s fellow No. 1, Serena Williams, was upset in the women’s final by Angelique Kerber. Then, a few hours later,

  • So this tournament has been interesting so far, and it's only been three days. You know what this tournament makes me feel like I'm watching? The Blair Witch Project. Every time I go to sleep, I wake up and one of the top seeds has disappeared. Who's next? Only the Melbourne Devil knows.There's still plenty of tournament left, but let's go over some of the highlights so far:1. This match-fixing scandal: I forgot the air quotes.

That would be brand new Aussie Daria Gavrilova, who upset 6th seed Petra Kvitova in straight sets last night. The upset won't surprise some because Kvitova has been so ill and has had no match practice. On the other hand, she looked stunning in her first round and served remarkably well.

  • When looking at last season’s performances of the top 5 on the ATP list there are some pretty clear conclusions to draw from it. This was definitely a year to remember for Nole and a year of misery and disappointment for Rafa. Murray’s season was a huge improvement compared to 2014, which he mostly spent recovering from injury. And the Swiss duo of Federer and Wawrinka played to the best of their capabilities, but didn’t warrant a top 2 position at the end of the year.1.

Domi starts her off-season training day with a 7am run and has accomplished more by 10am that many of us do in a full day. Yikes. Definitely something to aspire to.

If -- BIG IF -- Nadal gets past Verdasco, he could play himself into form. He seems to be at the place right now where he's beating the guys he's supposed to beat, but withering at the feet of the Big Four.3. Yes, I know that you think I spelled "Djokovic" wrong in the semi slot. I'm living on the edge!

Moreover, he's slated to play 8th seeded Ferrer in the quarters, who just got destroyed by Sock and shouldn't be much of a threat to Murray. In the early rounds Murray doesn't look to have much to fear either. He opens with 18 year old Alexander

  • The pool of colorful, interesting characters in tennis—something for which the sport once was justifiably famous—has gradually diminished over the years. That’s been the downside of the spartan developmental process that has turned tennis players into the superb athletes and astonishing shotmakers they are today. As a group, tennis players are mainstream millennials, all the way down to man buns and the sporty German vehicles parked in their garages at home. That’s why Milos Raonic is a particularly refreshing character looming on the ATP landscape in 2016. “Towering” may be the more accruate term, and not just because at 6’5”, with arms like pipe cleaners
