Wimbledon Women's Quarterfinal Previews
Maria Sharapova [4] vs. CoCo Vandeweghe Strange but true: Sharapova and Vandeweghe have never played. Each will come into their first meeting having not dropped a set in their first four matches at Wimbledon. You expect that from Sharapova, a five-time Slam champion, especially when she faces the middling competition she has faced so far. You certainly don’t expect that from Vandeweghe, who will be playing her first quarterfinal at a major. The American has been as cool and confident as any player in the tournament so far; will she be able to keep that cool when she’s upgraded to Centre

Djokovic Delayed; Federer, Murray Charge Into Wimbledon Quarters
"I got off to a good start and kept rolling," said the seven-time Wimbledon champ. "Maybe Roberto wasn't at his very best. Midway through the second, he hurt himself. Still, he was out there and he was actually still moving okay, so I had to put him away, which I was able to do."

Making Sense of the Madness
There are busy days at the majors, and then there’s the second—better known as manic—Monday at Wimbledon. The tournament is famous for its traditions, and one of them is to put all 16 fourth-round matches on the schedule in a single afternoon. This has it drawbacks, since there is no play at all on Sunday, when more people could be watching. But there isn’t a better day of tennis all season than Manic Monday. Here are a few of the highlights; it’s amazing how much can happen on a day when there aren’t all that many surprises. ***** Serena Williams [1] d.

The Frenchman got by with a little help from his "friend" on Manic Monday. France’s Richard Gasquet is moving on to the quarterfinals. And he might have the tennis gods in the sky to thank. Nick Kyrgios had two set points to force a 5th set against Gasquet (after saving two match points in the third), but he double-faulted twice in the final four points to fall, 7-5, 6-1, 6-7(7), 7-6(6). Unlike 2014, when Kyrgios saved 9 match points to defeat Gasquet, the Frenchman’s prayers were answered on this Manic Monday: Gasquet advances to face Stan Wawrinka in the quarterfinals.

Five to Follow: 2015 Wimbledon, Manic Monday
Serena Williams [1] vs. Venus Williams [16] Serena says that her sister is in better form, and has the “advantage” coming into their 26th meeting. Is she trying to take some of the pressure off of herself? Probably—Serena has enough at the moment with the whole calendar-year Grand Slam thing happening. By every measure, she’s the favorite in this one. Serena is ranked No. 1; Venus is No. 16. Serena hasn’t lost a match at a major since Wimbledon 12 months ago; until this year’s Australian Open, Venus hadn’t reached the quarterfinals of a Slam since 2010. Serena leads their head-to-head

I can handle watching two matches at a time, even though I don't like it, but when it comes to watching three or four, I hardly see the point. I kept up as best as I could, and found myself almost totally drawn to one match--Radwanska vs. Jankovic. I've never seen them play a match against each other that I haven't found compelling.

Splendid in the Grass
In 1982, Jim Valvano and his North Carolina Wolfpack basketball team coined the slogan “survive and advance” to describe their strategy for winning that year’s NCAA tournament. When the underdog group hung on through a series of nail-biters and buzzer-beaters—they made it through the basketball equivalent of four fifth-set tiebreakers—to win the title, the term stuck. Since then, “survive and advance” has become a favored approach of championship contenders everywhere. It offers clarity and simplicity: You don’t have to dominate, you don’t have to win beautifully or gracefully, you don’t even have to play well. Your have one job: To

Here are the cold hard facts that kinda refute that outcome: a. They are not playing dubs together.

Shaking off a bad Attitude
I'm not gonna lie – part of the reason my husband and I decided to uproot our family southbound was so that the kids could be outside more (that's code for “we could be outside more playing tennis!”). We're considerate parents like that. None of us envisioned that when the chance to move finally came, it would be piecemeal. We wouldn't be together, not right away. But even then, I thought it'd be a couple weeks only, not that long. Long enough for a working mom to take a breather from the family that always needed something, am I right?

The scary and the scared
"When I start to play, I was kind of smashing the serves. It was a good sign" - @Petra_Kvitova #Wimbledon pic.twitter.com/hK3i1eyNUf— Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) June 30, 2015My favorite version of Petra Kvitova showed up today at Wimbledon to play in the opening round. That would be Scary Petra, the pineapple-loving, Princess-slaying, give-you-"that-look" Petra. Kvitova defeated Kiki Bertens 6-1, 6-0 in 36 minutes. The defending champion made only three unforced errors, and one of the those was a double fault--the only point she lost on her serve. Scary Petra.Meanwhile (speaking of Princess), Genie Bouchard was defeated in her first round match by

Wimbledon 2015 Men's Singles Favourite
With the Wimbledon Championship going to kick start on Monday, it will be exciting to see who is the favourite men tennis players to win on the prestigious lawn surface. You'll find many predictions on the Internet including on Betfair Wimbeldon odds but I'm going to share with you my take on who will be the potential champion in London in two weeks time. The recent French Open was a pleasant (or shocking to some) surprise for many. We almost did not see it coming when Stanislas Wawrinka overpowered world no. 1 tennis player Novak Djokovic to walk away with

How Important is Wimbledon to Wawrinka?
After winning his second major title at this year's Roland Garros, Stan Wawrinka boosted his claim for the title of "best player of the Big Four era who isn't actually a member of the Big Four". Ferrer may have been more consistent (along with Berdych), but in a sport that measures success in grand slams above all else, it's hard to put anyone else ahead of Wawrinka. However, given that Wawrinka has struggled to back up big results in the past, he still has some doubters who question his up and down results. A strong run at Wimbledon would go

Men’s Wimbledon Draw Preview
Ladies Wimbledon Draw Preview can be found here. Novak’s Quarter The defending champion will be less than thrilled to kick off his title defence against a seriously difficult opponent, Philip Kohlschreiber.

Book Club: Ashe vs. Connors
After an extended hiatus, the Book Club returns. Today my TENNIS.com colleague Peter Bodo and I discuss his new book about the epochal 1975 Wimbledon final, "Ashe vs. Connors," which can be purchased at Amazon.com. Pete, It's easy to see why the 1975 Wimbledon final between Arthur Ashe and Jimmy Connors deserves book-length treatment. It stands alone among Open era tennis matches. It was a battle that broke down along racial and generational lines, it was a stunning upset, and, in the dignified 32-year-old’s victory over the young ruffian, it provided one of the great feel-good stories in tennis history. The match wasn't the greatest ever, but

Belinda Bencic is a Tank, A Poem
Belinda Bencic is a Tank Belinda Bencic defeated defending Eastbourne champion Madison Keys 6-2, 6-2 in under an hour. Belinda Bencic used a variety of serves and placements at an absurd 82% to avoid facing a break point all match. Belinda Bencic took advantage of Keys’ weaknesses, keeping the ball consistently deep to create attackable […]

Final Wrap – Thoughts on Punchy Kerber Edging Pliskova
One of the greatest things about the WTA is the wild and obvious contrast in styles across players. Never is that more obvious than when two players who excel on a particular surface for different reasons face off in tight final like we saw Sunday in Birmingham, as Kerber inched past Pliskova in three sets, […]

Can Federer Take Advantage of a Potentially Vulnerable Wimbledon Field?
For the last few years the tennis world has hyped Roger Federer's chances heading into nearly every major, only to see the Swiss legend fall short. Despite Federer's all-time great career, at some point we may have to be realistic and realize his days winning majors are officially over. While he's often in great form heading in, maybe that's just how it's going to be. But despite recent history, it may not be wise to expect another slip up from Federer at Wimbledon, in what could be his last realistic chance to win a grand slam. Federer came close to

Teen Angels
Prodigy is so, like, 1970. Fans once fell all over themselves for the likes of Chris Evert, Bjorn Borg, and others in the long line of youthful overachievers. But in the new millennium, the public has flung its collective arms around battle-scarred veterans and players of a certain age, including that pair of beloved 33-year olds, Roger Federer and Serena Williams. If that’s going to change, Wimbledon is the place it may happen—there’s quite a history of youthful insurgency at the All England Club, as I’ll get into. And it if happens this year, 17-year-old Ana Konjuh may be the latest

Blues on Red Clay
Has any tennis player ever faced a challenge as complex and fundamentally bizarre as the one staring Rafael Nadal in the face right now? Has anyone ever stood gazing at a mountain that has been as familiar, friendly, and tractable, yet in what seems like an instant turned so forbidding, towering, and shrouded in mist? What is sure to be the most riveting of Rafael Nadal’s 11 French Open campaigns begins this week. The nine-time champion is seeded a lowly No. 6, with tournament officials having decided that despite his numerous feats of derring-do in the 16th arrondissement, the Spaniard’s seeding

Hello fellow tennis nerds! You’ve probably noticed by now the extreme lack of posts in recent months.

Andy's World
Andy Murray won the first ATP clay-court title of his career a few days ago in Munich. Just why it took Murray so long to sharpen up his game on clay is an interesting issue that’s difficult to resolve, but the very question supports the idea that the 27-year-old, recently married Scot is a complex man with a complicated tennis game. That’s quite a combination. This calls for a little backstory: Murray left Scotland for Barcelona, Spain, at age 15. He subsequently trained on the red clay courts at the Sanchez-Casal Academy, often under the watchful eye of a versatile all-around master

My call, once again, for American men to hit the dirt in Europe
I hope I don't sound like too much of a broken record on this one, but I just can't figure out why the top American men don't play a heavier schedule on the red clay in Europe.I know that that's a long way from home base. I know there are finances involved. I know that there's the inclination to save oneself for the faster surfaces. But there's so much potential there to do well on the clay, and pick up points and prize money.Jack Sock just won the U.S. Clay Court Championships and did so in quite impressive fashion, counting

Simania
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
