Roger Federer? He's Going to Be OK

So, about that prediction of mine for Roger Federer as Wimbledon champ ...



Unexpectedly, or maybe not, the way he struggled from the onset of the tournament, Federer lost to Tomas Berdych today in the quarterfinals. We all know the details: the end of his finals streak there, two quarterfinal losses back-to-back in Majors, blah, blah, blah.



Despite all that, I'm far from ready to throw in the towel on him. And here's why, in two words and a number (I don't think I said this… Continue

Fields of Glory (IX): Wimbledon Day 9 Preview

Fields of Glory (VII): Wimbledon Day 7 Preview

Effective but unspectacular in her third-round victory, Sharapova reached the second week of a Slam for just the second time in her comeback from shoulder surgery and extended an encouraging passage of play that began with her Strasbourg title in May. Compiling a 14-3 record since her return from elbow injury, Maria now confronts a monumental challenge in world…

2010 Wimbledon - First Week report

The first week of the Championships at Wimbledon will be remembered for the top men's struggle and the royal presence. But nothing would be as memorable as the Isner-Mahut marathon which brought major changes in the history books with record-breaking achievements.

Fields of Glory (VI): Wimbledon Day 6 Preview







Among the most compelling reasons to watch Novak Djokovic is the Serb’s unpredictability, which echoes the pleasantly surprising narratives that emerge from this unpredictable sport. Expecting an engaging Day 5 after perusing the order of play, however, we were unpleasantly surprised by the dreary day that developed from what had seemed fascinating encounters.…

Fields of Glory (V): Day 5 Wimbledon Preview

Henin (17) vs. Petrova (12) (Centre Court, 1st match): Two Slams ago, Petrova scored a stunning third-round upset over a member of Belgium’s dazzling duo, and she has an opportunity to repeat the feat on the grandest stage of all. Typically tormented by Henin’s graceful, versatile style, the programmatic Russian dropped two tight matches to…

Fields of Glory (IV): Wimbledon Day 4 Preview

Trudging to the locker room after a 16-14 fifth set against Santiago Giraldo, Thiemo De Bakker must have feared that this protracted encounter would leave him at a physical disadvantage against his next opponent, either Isner or Mahut. As all tennis fans know well, such thoughts proved unfounded as the Frenchman and the American shattered virtually every record in every…

Isner/Mahut Wimbledon Marathon: Does the Winner Lose?

What other adjectives can I use that haven't already been taken? Epic. Outstanding. Ridiculous.



Sure other players won today including Roger Federer who was tested again by qualifier Ilija Bozoljac while Venus Williams took out red hot Ekaterina Makarova, but it was a match that ended yesterday and that also ended tonight at 59-59 all in the final set with no winner in sight that has become not only the tennis match of the tournament, not only the match of the year, but one for all… Continue

Use your own body for tennis-specific strength

Don’t bother spending a lot of money on gym memberships or fancy workout machines. One of the best pieces of exercise equipment is staring back at you when you look in the mirror. It’s not only free, it’s something that you already have. Without any added weight, your body can provide all the resistance needed for a functional strength-training workout. It’s also…

Fields of Glory (III): Wimbledon Day 3 Preview

Eagerly exploiting the faster surface, Sharapova followed her Birmingham finals appearance with a suffocating salvo to ignite her Wimbledon campaign. The transition from clay to grass proved a bit less hospitable, however, to two terrors of the terre battue. Unceremoniously ushered out of their All England Club debuts, Verdasco and Stosur failed to translate their six combined clay finals into the language of grass. But their defeats speak less about their shortcomings than about…

Fields of Glory (II): Wimbledon Day 2 Preview

If Wimbledon used the best-of-three format for the first week of its men’s matches, three of the top eight seeds would have fallen in their openers to Alejandro Falla, Olivier Rochus, and Kevin Anderson. While the travails of neither Djokovic nor Davydenko surprised us, the near-disaster suffered by the six-time champion was completely unexpected, since Federer had comfortably dismissed Falla twice in the last month. Forced to extricate himself from a two-set deficit, the feckless top seed…
