Fabulous Wimbledon

Fabulous Wimbledon

Once a year, shortly after the finals, the Chairman invites friends to play and socialize, who, like himself, have worked diligently to make the Championships unforgettable. (Singles Champions are made Honorary Members, and they enjoy the same privileges as Members.)

Any day you might see Virginia Wade, the 1977 champion, or Christine Janes, who reached the '69 final, using a wooden framed racket, and Kitty Godfree, the 1924 and 1926 Champion, who played on… Continue

Coming Out on Top (Australian Open Predictions: Women's Edition)

To quote the famous "Domestic Diva" Martha Stewart: "It's a good thing."

I'm not referring to any particular recipe or coat-sewing technique, but rather the depth in women's tennis occurring right now. Remember when it used to be only two to four players capable of winning a Major? Now, I'd say there's at least 12 to 15 that can pull it off. A good thing, indeed.

That makes it harder to call than ever, but for my money, I'm going with Venus Williams. I think winning the… Continue

The Over and Under Down Under (Australian Open Predictions: Men's Edition)

A story that's made the rounds the past few days heading into the Australian Open is Roger Federer being shocked that Andy Murray's the favorite to win in the eyes of the bookies in London. I see where Federer's coming from: Murray's never won a Slam, while he and Rafael Nadal have been racking them up over the years.

And speaking of Nadal, I'm about to do something that I've never done at my blog, Tennis Talk, Anyone?: Pick him to win a… Continue

Nole's New Head Speed Pro

After initially hoping this was a paint job I have come round to liking it. It seems to be rather large at the top of the hoop like the Airflow/Crossbow technology, also the grip looks rounder like his wilson than the slightly rectangular normal Head grip.

Looking at some interesting blogs going around saying that the racket was head heavy and fairly light weight.

Im wondering about head size blogs differ with most thinking 98, he used… Continue
