Bumps in the Dirt Road
Maria Sharapova and Rafael Nadal may not have a lot in common as people—he’s "not my type,” she has joked—but their careers have run on parallel tracks. They’re both in the elite club of career Grand Slammers, both have been at their best on clay, and both have spent long periods in the shadows of another player (in her case, Serena Williams; in his, Roger Federer). They’re also both famous for their cussed competitiveness. My co-nickname for them over the years has been The Persistents. While that may sound like the world’s most boring garage band, it has made for

Navratilova and Radwanska Part Ways after Four Months
After a four-month relationship that bore little fruit, Martina Navratilova has stepped down as Agnieszka Radwanska's coach.

Maria Sharapova Fell Down on Clay, and Twitter Was Fascinated
Maria Sharapova fell down on clay and everybody and their mother took a screen pic. Can you blame them? Maria Sharapova dropped her first decision at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart on Thursday, dropping a match on clay in which she had taken the first set for the first time in 65 matches. Recap: Sharapova Stunned by Kerber in Stuttgart It was also the Russian’s first loss in Stuttgart—she had amassed a 13-0 record with three titles in the German city, winning a brand new Porsche each time.

Distraught Nadal Laments “Vulgar” Forehand, Regression, in Loss to Fognini
After his latest loss on clay, 14-time Grand Slam champion was having difficulty seeing the positives. Rafael Nadal did not mince words after his 6-4, 7-6(6) loss to Fabio Fognini on Thursday at Barcelona. A week after sounding so hopeful about his performance at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, the Spaniard was dabbling in despair after falling to Fognini for the second consecutive time on clay.

1974: The World Team Tennis experiment begins
This year marks the 50th anniversary of TENNIS Magazine's founding in 1965. To commemorate the occasion, we'll look back each Thursday at one of the 50 moments that have defined the last half-century in our sport. The year was 1975 and Ion Tiriac had just been notified that he would be spending his summer in something called the Hoosier State, where he would play for the Indiana Loves of World Team Tennis. It was a long way from Tiriac’s native Transylvania. The Vampyric One, perhaps after scratching his curly hair and smoothing down his mutton chops a few times, had one question: “What

Is Nadal's Latest Loss a Big Deal?
It's no surprise that Rafael Nadal's loss to Fabio Fognini in Barcelonais getting a lot of attention. Anytime Nadal loses on clay it's a big deal, though it's certainly not as shocking as it used to be. In the past it never mattered what Nadal's form was heading into the clay season, as he'd always return to dominance on the dirt. Now, it appears his mediocre early season form has carried over. However, despite the further blow to Nadal's confidence, it's unlikely the loss will have lasting implications.Chances are Nadal will gradually improve as the clay season goes on, and

Occasionally, sports coughs up an athlete who becomes famous, even beloved, less for his or her athletic accomplishments or prowess than some mysterious quality of personality, or of the public’s unspoken need. For an extreme example, look at Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards, whose heroic failure as a Britain’s first ski jumper in 1988 endeared him to a worldwide audience. And consider the author of “Linsanity,” New York City’s wild if short-lived love affair with Jeremy Lin, a point guard for the NBA’s New York Knicks. A modest, unassuming, undrafted former Harvard student, Lin was promoted to starting guard and led an

The Disappearing Ernests Gulbis
Ernests Gulbis has long been a one of the hardest players in the game to figure out. He's known for mixing puzzling losses with brilliant upsets, and his ranking has fluctuated accordingly. However, it appeared that Gulbis began to figure it out and gain consistency in 2014, as he finished in the top 15 in the world. All the signs were pointing to more success in 2015, as Gulbis was squarely in his prime and would have the luxury of being seeded fairly high at most events. However, Gulbis' 2015 season to date has to be one of the strangest

Starting their Engines
For the last four years, the clay-court swing on the men’s side has been a two-month, and mostly two-player, race to the finish line in Paris. Each of those years, Novak Djokovic has spent the majority of that race in the lead, only to see Roger Federer (once) and Rafael Nadal (three times) pass him on the final weekend in Paris.  The starter’s gun went off again last week in Monte Carlo, and Djokovic has wasted no time in grabbing pole position.

What If Dimitrov Had Been Declared The Next Wawrinka Instead of Federer?
For years, Grigor Dimitrov faced the burden of living up to his "Baby Federer" nickname. The stylistic comparisons were obvious from the beginning, but Dimitrov has always lacked the precision and mental toughness of his so called "father". As he nears his 24th birthday, it's clear Dimitrov isn't going to become the dominant player many expected. This isn't to say he won't have a long and accomplished career with the occasional big title, but Dimitrov's fans were aiming higher.

When Genie Bouchard refused to shake the hand of her Fed Cup opponent, Kristina Kucova, before the rubbers began in February, it was hard to believe that she would repeat the act again this weekend, but she did--with Romania's Alexandra Dulgheru.

Fed Cup teams bring more than racket bags to semifinals
This weekend's Fed Cup World Group semifinals will feature an exhausted German, a refreshed Czech, a drama-prone Frenchwoman, and a cluster of sometimes mentally challenged Russians and Germans. What's not to like?Andrea Petkovic is one tired woman. She made it to the semifinals in both Miami and Charleston--and the doubles semifinals in Charleston. The German star (who was the defending champion in Charleston) said, after her loss to eventual Family Circle Cup champion Angelique Kerber, that "I had a very long season last year, and with the Fed Cup and Sofia, and everything was great, but I just had two

Looking Down Both Barrels
Is there a way to be confidently un-confident? That’s the question hovering over the head of Rafael Nadal as the European clay-court season begins. For most players, it will be a long and leisurely journey to the grand finale in Paris. For the five-time defending French Open champion, it may also be a perilous adventure. All eyes will be on Nadal in the weeks to come as he struggles with a double-barreled problem. First, the anxiety that has haunted him thus far this year, persistent and well-hidden as a pebble in his shoe. And then there’s Novak Djokovic, the ultra-dedicated player who

Tennis Betting Is Not Roulette and It Should Be Considered as a Skill Game
There are a number of people out there that view all types of sports betting a game of chance, a little like roulette. Tennis betting is one of those that is considered like roulette. Some people see it as a high risk, because there is no way to really determine how someone is going to play on the day. However, this is something that really should be considered a skill game. Tennis betting requires more than just picking between one or the other player.Learning to Understand the OddsBookmakers create odds for a reason. They tell individuals what the bookmakers believe

Miami shaking out OK for Andy Murray
It's been an interesting 2015 so far for Andy Murray.There was that Australian Open final. There was that return to the "Big 4." There was that stretch of tournaments without a sniff of a semifinal. There were those convincing defeats at the hands of Novak Djokovic.But I guess you'd have to say the good outweighs the bad, for the most part, especially coming off a season where he was rebounding from back surgery--not really the easiest thing in the world for a professional athlete to deal with.Anyway, the reason I bring up Andy Murray is because of Rafael Nadal and

Think Tank
For long stretches over the past few years, Australian Bernard Tomic seemed bent on turning his career into a train wreck. After Tomic appeared to go into the tank in a second-round match with Andy Roddick at the 2012 U.S. Open, a fellow Aussie hung him with the nickname, “Tomic the Tank Engine” (a reference to the wildly popular children’s stories). Ranking members of the Australian tennis establishment—men like Tony Roche, Pat Rafter, John Newcombe—as well as pundits and diehard fans vacillated between two poles, sometimes simultaneously. They felt a measure of sympathy for the gifted but seemingly confused, self-sabotaging youngster

Winter Is Going
Last night 14,894 Feder-I mean-tennis fans piled into Madison Square Garden for the 8th annual BNP Paribas Showdown. The exhibition event, the centerpiece of World Tennis Day, starred Hall of Famers Gabriela Sabatini and Monica Seles, alongside 17-time major champion Roger Federer and Grigor Dimitrov.Given the bracing cold of this New York winter, the sight of tennis, with its perpetually tanned competitors, doing (something approximating) battle in midtown Manhattan was as sure a sign of the spring thaw underway as the sudden vanishing of our street corner slush ponds.So how did this Showdown fare as an exhibition event?
