  • The day after: How Djokovic and Federer played the crucial points
  • “It could have easily gone his way,” Novak Djokovic said after beating Roger Federer by the most evanescent of margins at Wimbledon on Sunday. Those words could be used to describe a lot of tennis matches, of course; this is a sport where it’s rare for any player to win more than 60 percent of the points played, even in a lopsided result, and where it’s not uncommon for a player to lose a match despite having won most of the points. Just ask Federer, who won 218 points to Djokovic’s 204, but walked away with the runner-up plate. It’s a

  • The War of 13-12—Djokovic's best v. Federer came when it mattered most
  • “As serious as a heart attack,” is how the phrase goes. Can a tennis match be as serious as 10 heart attacks? That’s probably how many your average Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer fan had during Djokovic’s five-hour, 7-6 (5), 1-6, 7-6 (4), 4-6, 13-12 (3) win over Federer in Sunday's Wimbledon final. If that 13-12 score looks like a typo, that’s because this was the first singles match in Wimbledon’s 142-year history to finish with a tiebreaker in the deciding set. Which is fitting, because this match also brought the curtain down on a decade of outsized and historic

  • If the old Simona Halep were still around, she’d be jealous of the new Simona Halep. The old Simona lost her first three Grand Slam finals in painfully close matches. When she finally did win one, against Sloane Stephens at the 2018 French Open, she had to labor mightily to come back from a set and a break down. When things went south for the old Simona, she would rush from one point to the next; her coach once threatened to quit if she didn’t get her act together. At 5’6”, she struggled to stand toe to toe with her taller, more

Novak Djokovic vs. Roger Federer When Djokovic and Federer were asked about playing each other on Sunday, there was a clear theme to their answers: We’ve been here before. “I’ve played with Roger in some epic finals here a couple years in a row, so I know what to expect,” Djokovic said. “I think the moment you’ve played somebody probably more than 15 times, especially in recent years also a few times, there’s not much more left out there,” Federer said. Indeed, Djokovic and Federer have faced off 47 times since 2006, twice in

  • Roger-Rafa XL showed what Federer has done to turn around this rivalry
  • When Friday’s semifinal at Wimbledon between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal began, the match that was on everyone’s minds was their classic 2008 final on Centre Court. This was the first time that the Spaniard and the Swiss had met in that arena since their legendary dual in the dusk 11 years ago. Three hours later, though, when this semi was over and the chalk had settled on Federer’s 7-6 (3), 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 win, it no longer felt like a sequel to a past epic. Instead it felt like the continuation of the matches they had been playing since 2017,

And play it she did, over and over. She sliced and she dropped, going for classic grass court strategies.

  • Court Report: Serena Williams, just one Slam shy of Margaret Court's record, is ready for 2019 They are the twin rails on which the game has traveled for nearly two decades, like some great locomotive powering its way across the public’s imagination. Serena Williams and Roger Federer, hailed by most as the greatest players of all time in their respective divisions of the sport, are like railroad tracks: their careers progressed on parallel paths, forever in great proximity. Rail tracks never meet, not even at the end of the line, except by optical illusion on the distant horizon. One of the rails

  • The Role & Popularity of Credit Unions in the UK
  • Since they were first established in the UK in 1964, credit unions have becoming increasingly popular so that there are now over 300 different ones in England, Wales and Scotland. Over more than 5 decades, they have offered their financial services to over 1.3 million people. The objective of a credit union is to encourage their members to use money wisely. One of the cornerstones of their philosophy is to promote the habit of saving regularly so as to avoid costly loans. This is achieved through standard savings accounts as well as more specialised financial products

  • 50 Years, 50 Heroes: Mirjana Lucic-Baroni, 1997
  • For our sixth annual Heroes Issue, we’ve selected passages from the last 50 years of Tennis Magazine and TENNIS.com—starting in 1969 and ending in 2018—to highlight 50 worthy heroes. Each passage acknowledges the person as they were then; each subsequent story catches up with the person, or highlights their impact, as they are now.

  • 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

  • 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.

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.

  • 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
