  • It really would be nice to have a full grass-court season, wouldn’t it? This weekend you could see the variety that it would bring to the tours. After two months of clay-lovers having their way, it was time for the turf warriors to take a turn, and a title or two, in the sun. Petra Kvitova, Roger Federer, Feliciano Lopez and Marin Cilic all showed off their grass-court chops in a series of finals that gave us more than their share of mastery, suspense and emotion.

  • Eastbourne is the last-chance saloon of grass-court tournaments. For players looking for a last-minute tune-up before the Championships at Wimbledon, it’s pretty much the only game in town, or out of town. That’s doubly true in 2017, when this little seaside town event will be headlined by two big stars in desperate need of some tuning up, Novak Djokovic and Angelique Kerber. Here’s a look at who else in the Eastbourne fields, and in this week’s men’s grass event in Turkey. ***** Aegon International Eastbourne (WTA) Eastbourne, England $753,900; Premier Grass Draw is here Eastbourne is a small town and a small site, but a big field

  • Are you getting used to the three-week break between Roland Garros and Wimbledon? Or does it still feel a little luxurious? This is the third year since the All England Club moved its dates back a week. While that may not sound like much of a change, it qualified as a major upheaval in the tennis world, and it has allowed something approaching a grass-court season to bloom in June. These days, the old Wimbledon warm-ups, at Queen’s, Eastbourne and Halle, have their own warm-up events, in Stuttgart and Nottingham. Still, tennis on turf is a sprint rather than a marathon.

  • As we bid adieu to Roland Garros, we look back at one of the greatest French Open runs of all time—in one of the most dominant single seasons of all time. Guillermo Vilas pawed at the clay with his white Puma sneakers as he waited for his opponent to serve. The 24-year-old native of Argentina, who was known as the game’s most soulful philosopher, looked more pensive than ever as he stared at the baseline. At long last, his moment had arrived. The year was 1977 and the place was Roland Garros. Vilas was playing Brian Gottfried in the French Open final and,

  • Sharapova's immediate return is a signature move, and a warning shot
  • Maria Sharapova’s decision to play her first WTA tour match following a 15-month doping suspension on her very first day of eligibility is a signature move, and a warning shot to anyone who cares to listen. That includes the tournament at which she’ll return, the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart, which is holding a slot open for her three days into the start of play—because she isn’t allowed to set foot on the grounds until then. If history is any indication, she will proceed to set that foot onto the throat of her first opponent. We’ll see, though. For whoever gets the

  • Gone like Jamestown, the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort was a treasure
  • Welcome to Florida Week! As the tours head southeast for the Miami Open, TENNIS.com and Baseline will feature all things Sunshine State. You’ll learn about the personalities, stories, teams and venues that have made Florida one of the tennis capitals of the world. We’ll also be reporting from the Miami Open in Key Biscayne. As you’ll learn this week, when it comes to tennis, Florida isn’t just a state—it’s a state of mind. The Colony.

  • Federer, Rafa have reset their expectations; Can they live up to them?
  • If you were a hopelessly romantic tennis fan in January, you might have envisioned a day this year when Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer—perhaps even together—would once again appear on a Grand Slam podium for a singles trophy presentation. Wouldn’t that be something? But you probably did not, in your wildest dreams, think it could happen at the Australian Open. But the twin icons got there, and it may be a game changer for 2017. Their success also catapulted them into an entirely new category as far as expectations go, and that’s a mixed blessing. Much is anticipated, little is known. The impact

However, it's just not going to work out this time around. That doesn't mean the ties will be lacking the usual amount of drama.

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.

  • 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. Enjoy!

  • 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

Done that.Getting that Olympic Gold medal draped around your neck for a singles victory?Well... that's where Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer—two of the greatest players of all time—fall short.In fact, the only male player ever who can check off "all of the above" is none other than Andre Agassi. In the era of the "Big 4" and records falling by the wayside, Agassi's solo accomplishment becomes even more impressive. Prior to this

What if he'd dropped New Haven from his schedule? Would he have been sharper for the Open? Plus, the fact that he had to work hard in that New Haven final might've sapped him
