  • Throughout the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, we'll preview the upcoming days' must-see matches. Grigor Dimitrov vs. Juan Martin del Potro One week you’re chest bumping each other in a doubles match in Montreal, and the next week you’re duking it out across the net in Cincinnati. Such is life on the pro tour. Del Potro and Dimitrov—two popular players, easygoing guys and good buddies—will face off in the day’s first match in the main stadium. Delpo, it turns out, is much friendlier with Dimitrov when they’re on the same side of the court than he is when they’re on opposite sides.

  • Well, here we are, tennis world. Living in a time when Tomas Berdych has just as good a shot at winning Wimbledon as Roger Federer. Except Berdych would have to beat Federer to do that.Berdych advanced to the semis when Novak Djokovic quit the match with an ongoing elbow issue, which to me begs the question: Why hire a new coach if your issue is injury? I think Federer (and the Williams sisters -- to great criticism) showed that taking an expended break to address injuries can be positive for your career.Another big surprise was Sam Querrey outplaying Andy Murray

  • 30-Love: The end of the beginning for Novak Djokovic
  • The second installment of our 30-Love series contemplates the future of another May-birthday baseliner, Novak Djokovic. We began with an examination of Andy Murray, 30 years after he was born. These are trying times for Novak Djokovic, not exactly what he might have anticipated when he turned 29 a year ago today and started down the road to his watershed 30th birthday. It’s all the more reason for him to welcome—and ponder—the seismic shift that has taken place in tennis longevity. It wasn’t so long ago that 30, traditionally a landmark year that spooked youth, was especially tough on athletes. Tennis players usually thought of it

  • 30-Love: Andy Murray crosses tennis' so-called rubicon at his peak
  • Over the next 30 days, we'll examine one of tennis' most important numbers from a variety of perspectives. First, an assessment of world No. 1 Andy Murray, who turns 30 today. It doesn’t take much imagination to come up with some gag birthday gifts for Andy Murray, who turns 30 today. How about a nice shooting jacket and tweed plus-fours, now that he’s officially Sir Andrew Barron Murray, OBE? A year’s supply of Pup-Peroni dog treats for his two border terriers? Maybe a tanning bed? It’s easy to think along these lines because Murray is that rarity in tennis these days, a character.

  • 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

  • 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

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.

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.

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
