  • 1. Alexander Zverev [4] vs. Ernests Gulbis The 21-year-old Zverev and the 29-year-old Gulbis have never played, but they know each other. Gulbis was a houseguest of the Zverevs during a training trip when he was younger. They also share a common strength: Their two-handers. We often talk up matches that are “showcases for the nearly-extinct one-handed backhand”; this match will showcase the two-hander, and remind us how good it can look, and how useful it can be. As far as who is going to win, that’s a tougher call than it might appear at first. Yes, Zverev is ranked far higher;

  • Madison Keys got ahead of herself in a rollercoaster defeat to Rodina
  • It seems that Madison Keys and I were on similar wavelengths on Friday. Watching her go up 5-2 in the first set against 120th-ranked Evgeniya Rodina, I was struck by how easy she was making everything look, and how calm and composed she appeared to be as she walked to the sideline. My next thought was, “Madison Keys is going to win Wimbledon.” It wasn’t a crazy thought, or a laughable thought; it was, I believed at the time, a rational thought. Six of the Top 8 seeds in the women’s draw were already out. Someone had to win the tournament, so why

  • “It’s frustrating because I feel like I could have gone and done something really great here,” Caroline Wozniacki said after losing to Ekaterina Makarova in the second round at Wimbledon on Wednesday. Wozniacki is usually a player who moves on from her losses quickly; with her jam-packed schedule, there’s always another plane to catch, and another match to play. But she had trouble letting go of this one, or being chivalrous in defeat. The unseeded Makarova, according to Wozniacki, “played above her level” and “got a little lucky” and hit “a lot of lines” and “a lot of crazy shots that

In 2014, Kukushkin did what everyone tries to do against Rafa on grass: He took the ball early, hit it flat, and attacked whenever possible. It was enough to win him the first set in a tiebreaker—and to get him a total of three games over the next three sets. If anything, Nadal is better

  • 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

  • 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

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 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.

  • 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
