It all started quite innocently. I went to the pro shop to buy some stuff. Because I had paid for the weekend of tennis, I was entitled to a sweet discount at the pro shop. So I’m there minding my own business, picking out tops, skorts and other pretty but practical outfits (not made of black lace, ha ha), when an Indian instructor came in and asked one of the instructors I… Continue
When Serbian Jelena Jankovic acquired the top spot in WTA rankings during the European hardcourt season of 2008, many tennis pundits considered her unworthy of the billing. Fellow tennis stars including Roger Federer attacked her with ........................
One of the most wonderful aspects of a Slam is the tremendous opportunities that amateur tennis players get to study the games of the pros. We can all learn a lot about how to play tennis from watching those who exceed in the sport. But it’s important to know exactly what you are copying. And more importantly, you need to make sure what is right for your… Continue

Not many people know that where Rafa's left hand does all the talking on a tennis court, it's his right hand that gets him almost every other thing in life. But inevitably, the question arises, what if Nadal was a right-hander on court too...? Wanna know, read on to find out...!…
I’ve just come from a party that involved copious amounts of meat and alcohol, so yeah … hopefully I don’t pass out while I write this.
I didn’t see Rafa play his first match at Roland Garros and have been wanting to see the fast rising lefty from Argentina, Horacio Zeballos play for a while, so sitting down and watching them play a couple of sets in the second…
It's been exactly 10 years since France witnessed the coronation of a native champion on the red clay of Roland Garros. Canadian born Frenchwoman Mary Pierce was the last player to win the title on home soil. Will Rezai carry the enormous burden of expectations to emerge victorious? Find out…

This latest edition features previews of Cibulkova-Venus, Rezai-Petrova, Murray-Baghdatis, Dulgheru-Wozniacki, Kuznetsova-Kirilenko, Montanes-Soderling, and Isner-Berdych in addition to analysis (unbiased, we promise!) of the intra-Serbian feud between Ivanovic and Jankovic over the most controversial gesture in tennis: the fistpump.

Venus’ private life does not show up in the gossip magazines. She normally comes as across as so… Continue

The contrast between efficient and inefficient tennis couldn’t have been much starker than in consecutive ATP matches on Court Philippe Chatrier. While Federer never opened a window of opportunity for Alejandro Falla, Gael Monfils opened windows and doors aplenty for Fabio Fognini, nearly jumping out of a window himself before the setting sun conspired with the Frenchman to deny the Italian three match points. We checked out on this match when Monfils led by two sets and a break, then…
Since I'm tired from the sun, work, trying to figure out where Al Qaeda is holding Lee from 'American Idol' hostage and various other things, I'm handing today's post over to the immortal Sou Sylvester off 'Glee'.
