    "I love playing Maria," Serena said. "For me, I don't feel like I have any pressure going into this match. We both lost early here last year. We're both kind of enjoying this moment and at the end of the day one of us will be in the final."

    Had Britain's Heather Watson closed out the deal against world number one Serena Williams at Wimbledon on Friday, then nothing that would have followed over the next week would have mattered. Even if someone like Timea Bacsinszky or even Heather Watson herself went on to lift the women's title, then all the talk would still have been about how Williams had had her 23 Grand Slam match streak snapped. The buzz about her failure to capture the Serena Slam and the Calendar Year Slam would have been churned over and over again. It would have grabbed all attention until the Wimbledon hype this year…

  • Book Club: Ashe vs. Connors

    24 Jun 2015 | 10:00 am
    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…

    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…

    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…

    7 May 2015 | 1:44 pm
    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 of…

    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…

    The unbeatable top-ranked Serena Williams won the blockbuster quarterfinal against Victoria Azarenka, 3-6 6-2 6-3, in an imposing comeback victory. Can you imagine that almost all Vika's recent losses have come at the hands of Serena or Sharapova? Dating back to Indian Wells: Sharapova, Pennetta, Serena, Sharapova, Serena, Serena.

    If you're a loyal reader of my blog, you know that I do extensive fashion overviews for each Grand Slam and that I'm a big fan of Wimbledon fashion, even though all that brands have to work with is plain white. My stance is that strict Wimbledon rules push designers to think extra hard, forcing them to play even more with textures, fabrics and cuts, as they don't have the freedom of using attention-grabbing colors and prints. Have a look at this collage of latest women's tennis clothing and let me know if you agree with me. Horizontal tonal stripes and modern dual…

Final score of this Wimbledon third-round match: 3-6 7-5 6-4. Watch how JJ celebrated the spectacular victory, her first Top 10 win this season and only her second Top 5 win on…

    Serena Williams had to dig deep to win her 24th straight Grand Slam match today in the third round of Wimbledon, as home favorite Heather Watson was twice just two points away from becoming the first British WTA player since 1979 to beat a reigning world No.1. Watson was absolutely dominated in the first set, but showed her grit in the second set, miraculously winning six games in a row with three service breaks to level the match and race into an unbelievable 3-0 lead in the deciding set. Williams clawed back to 3-3 and held serve in the seventh game of the set, but Watson held her own as…

The former world No.7 got a wildcard into the qualifying draw and according to my photographer’s tweet, I see that he’s pondering whether to show up at the tournament to capture the big moment. Sure, we want your pics and report, Jimmie48! Remember, Schnyder ended her illustrious 17-year career in 2011, following her first-round exit at the French Open, and has since been the…

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 among his wins Roberto Bautista Agut—no slouch on the clay at…

But I just had this crazy, nutty, out-of-this-world thought:What if no one from the "Big 4" made it to the semis?Like, suppose Nick Kyrgios continues to play like the fearless teenager that he is and rides the momentum of hometown support, and shocks Andy Murray in the quarters? What if Tomas Berdych decides no one beats him 18 times in a row and takes it to Rafael Nadal in…

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.

Not that he was lying, but maybe that it wasn't as bad as it seemed. There are a lot of people who might have thought that no one actually says those types of racist things "anymore." Over the years, I've realized that people do say those things, and they probably did that day at that tournament. So Serena Williams' decision to go back there makes her a lot stronger than I already thought she was.Of course, at first, I was like,…

    Manic Monday.Commentators call it "the best tennis day of the year." Really? 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. The only result that surprised me to today was CoCo Vandeweghe's upset of Lucie Safarova; I really didn't see that coming. Vandeweghe played with such conviction that even the clever and…

Beyond that, most people don't go to work on Sunday, which makes it a perfect day to watch tennis, except there isn't any to watch.People say that middle gives the players a rest, but actually, it gives the male players a rest. Since all of the women's round of 16 matches are played on Monday and the women's quarterfinals are played the next day, the middle Sunday "rest" really doesn't mean much for the WTA side of the…

  • Serena Williams and Heather Watson star in heart-pounding thriller

    Sitting on my sofa, watching Serena Williams and Heather Watson in today's third round match, I couldn't help but notice that my breathing was rapid, my muscles were taut, and I'm sure my heart rate must have gone up, though I didn't think to check it. Then I thought--how must Serena and Heather feel?Serena Williams has a knack for getting herself into all kinds of trouble at very big moments, and then--at the last minute, with the locomotive quickly approaching--untying herself from the railroad tracks. Never was this talent more on display than it was today, when British number 1 Heather…

    "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),…

  • How I Went From a Nervous Wreck to Cool and Confident

    Todd.Spiker
    5 Jul 2015 | 7:26 pm
    Another ball sailed wide and I felt it in my stomach. A gnawing, painfully uneasy feeling came over me and I knew I was in trouble. It was the third and final set of my college intramurals and my team was counting on me and my partner to win this set. It was the decisive match. The winners would go on to the finals and the losers would be at home drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon while listening to Led Zeppelin with their dorm mates. Even though I had some success in high school as an Imperial Valley League doubles champion, I hadn’t solved the mental game of tennis. Not by a long shot.My knees…

    Hey Y'all. Galileo here.First things first. Now secondly, apologies for missing two posts. I missed them as I was attending Wimbledon. I think that's a good excuse. And on the day of rest, Sunday, there will be another post. But for now the spell of fabulous weather remains unbroken. And so do the fabulous matches. Wimbledon is putting on a bumper show this year. It happens every now and then. Well, even more frequently now. A lower ranked player will suddenly rise up and steal a set off a big name. It's still rare but it happens. And when it does it invariably makes the match more…

    1 Jul 2015 | 6:27 pm
    Hey Y'all. Galileo here.And the big news here is that Tommy is not a Haasbeen. He is the bridge, the link between the 90's, the 00's and the 10's. He has been relevant in all three decades. He's played against Sampras and Agassi. He has played against Federer, Nadal and Djokovic. He has played against Hewitt and Roddick, too. And he has beaten all of them except Nadal, who he didn't play until Nadal's heyday. But the players on the ATP tour know him and his game. They know what he can do. He made his slam debut in 1997 at the US Open. Players here at Wimbledon weren't born yet. They weren't…

    Hey Y'all. Galileo here.So often we get a seed exodus. The seeds just seem to part like the Red sea, they seem to dissipate and just fade away. Upsets abound and, in fact, there are so many upsets these days that they don't warrant more than a shrug. And Wimbledon has taken over as the place where upsets happen. Well, it always had that but the French took over before Wimbledon once again reasserted it's reputation. With Court Two, or the "graveyard of champions," going it took a knock to its reputation. McEnroe, Connors, Cash, Sampras and both Williams sisters have fallen on Court Two. So…

Pick a player to win each round but you cannot pick them again. And these are the picks I picked last week when the draw was announced. MS 1st Rd: Dolgopolov d. Edmund==WS 1st Rd: Wickmayer d. Kulichkova =WIMBLEDON 2002=World number one at just 21 and winning everything, Hewitt was the favourite for Wimbledon. There was no real evidence he could even play on grass. Well, that's not true. He had won three Queens titles and all back to back. He'd…

  • Simple Tennis Tip – Down The Middle Solves The Riddle

    Kim Selzman
    7 Jul 2015 | 7:00 am
    Where’s the best place to put the ball in doubles? Placing it down the middle often “solves the riddle” of where the ball should go. By hitting down the middle, you put the ball over the lowest part of the net, you give yourself lots of court to hit into, you often confuse your opponent since they may not be sure who should take the ball, and you take away the angles from them. Remember – down the middle solves the riddle! GET A BETTER SERVE FAST! And if you’re interested in getting a better serve – fast! – get my free ebook, 10 Quick Fixes to Improve…

Many business owners simply don’t know how to get a business loan or how to get a business grant. Quite a few business owners are hesitant to borrow from a financial institution, as it means a long-term cut in cash profits, but it could potentially be a good option so long as you have sufficient cash flow to pay back the loans plus any interest.

  • Something Called The Grand Slam – Book Excerpt From “The Education of a Tennis Player”

    Archive
    5 Jul 2015 | 8:23 am
    Rod Laver is one of five players to win the Grand Slam of tennis – sweeping all four majors in one calendar year. He is the only one to achieve this amazing feat on two occasions – in 1962 and in 1969. Laver discusses the Grand Slam in this except from his book “The Education of a Tennis Player” (available here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/0942257626/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_3LuMvb169NNH6) written with Bud Collins. Grand Slam varies in meaning in the games of bridge, baseball, golf, and tennis. A sweep of the tricks, or a home run with the bases loaded, is unusual but not rare. The bridge table…

    It was 30 years ago in 1985 when Wimbledon experienced perhaps its most controversial moment of fashion. On the cold day of June 27, 1985, Anne White decided to wear a more functional all white body suit outfit provided by her clothing endorser Pony in her match with Pam Shriver, but the outfit was later deemed to be a “wardrobe malfunction” by the strict Wimbledon officials. The excerpt from the “This Day In Tennis History” mobile app and book by Randy Walker (www.TennisHistoryApp.com) documenting the famous fashion incident can be found below.

Personally, I don’t think either one makes a player any better, just different. I’ve got a solid two-handed backhand is one I’m proud to have in my arsenal. When at the baseline, I hit hard and deep (usually flat, sometimes with topspin), and when I’m at the net, I can either use a two-handed backhand volley, or this wicked one-hand-release, seriously angled shot that I’ve developed over the years. And my biggest…

    The French Open is over, and Wimbledon starts this Monday! Sheesh! Where has this year gone?! We apologize that there wasn’t a “Weekend Wrap Up” last Saturday, but our editor was busy turning 50 in New Orleans, lol! That being said, this week, we had 6 posts in these categories: “Tennis Tips”, “Monday Motivation”, “Fitness”, “Skin Care”, “Health and Wellness”, and even a press release from team Ana Ivanovic! And since there was only one post from the previous week, we included it too! Happy reading everyone! Posts…
  • Building And Strengthening Muscle Fortifies Bones in Children

    Photo: BARRY BLAND/BARCROFT MEDIA Building and strengthening skeletal muscle fortifies the bones, ligaments, and tendons – and not just for us adults, but for our KIDS too! This isn’t just me talking, there have been numerous studies done, comparing muscle mass and bone density data in children, and what scientists have found is that at an early age, gaining, lean muscle mass rather than fat is linked to development of healthier bones – in girls, especially. They also found that fat mass had no significant effect on bone density even though it may have provided extra body…

  • Vanilla Bean Tennis Shoes ~ How do you personalize your court shoes?

    Wrist Witherspoon
    25 Jun 2015 | 1:00 am
    Vanilla is good if you’re trying to take the tartness out of real yogurt, it’s great as flecks of bean in ice cream and wonderful as candle fragrance. But to me, vanilla is no good for tennis shoes! Yes, white tennis shoes have been an institution and tradition (and Wimbledon is about to start) but I, along with others, pined for attitude in our shoes on court for decades! Finally, Asics, Nike, Wilson, and Babalot have all answered the tennis players need and craving for color! Recently, I purchased a pair of Nike Ballistic Advantage shoes in ‘Yo!-I-am here’ YELLOW and ‘Punched…

    It’s been about four years since I was approached by Janelle and asked to consider turning a ‘little idea written in a journal’ into a real marketable, sellable, accessory sport item. Our partnership has turned into Wristpect Sport and our wristbands unleashed! So much has happened since we sat at my kitchen table and I watched as she presented her idea on how to revolutionize the sweatband for tennis and other sports. In the beginning we both sought to market the idea of turning the white no nonsense and boring sweatband into a fun, fashion savvy, and yet truly functional accessory.

    If only we all had a chance to sit down with the greatest tennis players of all time to ask them how it is that they do what they do. Just how do they play such incredible tennis? Imagine Pete Sampras telling you how to get a great second serve. Or Andy Murray revealing how to hit a drop shot. Or doubles great Max Mirnyi explaining just how to hit someone at the net and not live to regret it. In his book, Game, Set and Match: Secret Weapons of the World's Top Tennis Players, tennis journalist Mark Hodginson gives us all of these "secrets" and a whole lot more.

  • A Swinging Nun + the Math on Love 30,40...

    Wrist Witherspoon
    28 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    I’m not a numbers person. It’s true. Math is not my favorite. Go figure, my sport--tennis--uses numbers in increments (15, 30, 40) and a simple zero is not a zero but rather the word, ‘Love!’ I’ve worked through all ‘that’ and cohabitate nicely with numbers on court. But I still face numbers everyday--especially in business. Leave it to a Florida based tennis gal known as the ‘SWINGING NUN,’ and who is slightly my ‘senior,’ to school me on numbers and get me smiling about them! How did she do it?  She sent a simple email—customer to manufacturer-- containing…
  • No Place I’d Rather Be and my Omega-3s!

    20 May 2015 | 4:00 am
    My friends and I love playing tennis. In fact, when I’m on the court winning OR losing, there is no place I’d rather be, just like the shirt says. Because this is true, I do what I can away from the court to make the time I spend on the court as productive as possible. This includes providing my body with what it needs to enhance my chances to out perform my opponent OR maybe just to feel my best. One supplement I take daily are omega-3 fatty acids. Here are some interesting things I know about them. There are two types of polyunsaturated fats, omega-6 fatty acids and omega-3 fatty…

  • Serena Williams - what does Wimbledon scare against Watson tell us?

    3 Jul 2015 | 9:00 pm
    Had Britain's Heather Watson closed out the deal against world number one Serena Williams at Wimbledon on Friday, then nothing that would have followed over the next week would have mattered. Even if someone like Timea Bacsinszky or even Heather Watson herself went on to lift the women's title, then all the talk would still have been about how Williams had had her 23 Grand Slam match streak snapped. The buzz about her failure to capture the Serena Slam and the Calendar Year Slam would have been churned over and over again. It would have grabbed all attention until the Wimbledon hype this year…
  • Serena to trump Grand Slam field again

    27 Jun 2015 | 9:00 pm
    You can’t of course talk about a Grand Slam without getting into the presence of Serena Williams, owner of the 2015 Australian and French Opens. She has had misfires at Wimbledon over the last two seasons, exiting at the third round last year against Alize Cornet after hammering the French woman 6-1 in the opening set. That followed a round of sixteen exit in 2013 when she was beaten out over three sets by Germany's Sabine Lisicki. Still, with five previous Wimbledon titles under her belt, she knows her way around SW19. What is really at stake for Williams at Wimbledon? This go round it…
  • British interest at Wimbledon likely to extend no further than Murray

    24 Jun 2015 | 9:00 pm
    Let's weigh it up. There's Andy Murray and, um, well, that would appear to be the sum of the options for home support when it comes to Wimbledon from a British perspective. Of course, Muzza isn't the only British player in the Wimbledon field, but he is the only one in with an actual genuine chance of winning a title there. That's not an uncommon thing, Australian fans don't have much to cheer about in Melbourne at the start of the year and even the French Open is devoid of a wealth of French title winners. Of course, you have had Serena Williams dominating the US Open, but other than that,…
  • Radwanska and Nadal shed a bit of light on their seasons

    12 Jun 2015 | 9:00 pm
    I know that it is post-Grand Slam week, but it has been a decent week of tennis on the WTA nonetheless. It is a confirmation of how much I am actually enjoying the season and also how much more I would have enjoyed it if Serena Williams hadn’t produced somewhat predictable results at the Australian and French Opens this season. I always seem to be picking at Williams, but it's not that I don’t admire Williams and all of her achievements, I just don’t like dominance because it doesn’t equal entertainment. Look what Federer, Nadal and Djokovic have done for the men’s game over the…

    Stan was the man then. Hats off to the Swiss star for beating the unbeatable Djokovic against all the odds in the final of the French Open. Let’s face it, you probably didn’t see it coming. Like me you probably selected him in your Tisque team on the basis that the likes of Federer and Nadal weren’t too likely to be genuine threats at the business end of things, and was selected as nothing much more than background noise in the tournament behind Djokovic and Murray. A Grand Slam in each of the last two seasons now and clearly as things stand, besides Djokovic and Murray, Wawrinka is…
