    What did we learn from Genie Bouchard last week? Evidently not much... Is Genie Bouchard inspiring ATP players to also forgo one of tennis’s storied traditions? Probably not, but something caused the bad blood between Guillermo-Garcia Lopez and Lukas Rosol on Friday at the BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy in Bucharest. More: Sharapova Falls, both Literally and Figuratively, in Stuttgart Watch as Garcia-Lopez tries to peg Rosol with a smash on match point, then ignores the Czech’s attempt to shake his hand. Only when prompted by the umpire does the Spaniard reach his hand out to Rosol,…

    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…
  • Looking Down Both Barrels

    Is there a way to be confidently un-confident? That’s the question hovering over the head of Rafael Nadal as the European clay-court season begins. For most players, it will be a long and leisurely journey to the grand finale in Paris. For the five-time defending French Open champion, it may also be a perilous adventure. All eyes will be on Nadal in the weeks to come as he struggles with a double-barreled problem. First, the anxiety that has haunted him thus far this year, persistent and well-hidden as a pebble in his shoe. And then there’s Novak Djokovic, the ultra-dedicated player who…

    For long stretches over the past few years, Australian Bernard Tomic seemed bent on turning his career into a train wreck. After Tomic appeared to go into the tank in a second-round match with Andy Roddick at the 2012 U.S. Open, a fellow Aussie hung him with the nickname, “Tomic the Tank Engine” (a reference to the wildly popular children’s stories). Ranking members of the Australian tennis establishment—men like Tony Roche, Pat Rafter, John Newcombe—as well as pundits and diehard fans vacillated between two poles, sometimes simultaneously. They felt a measure of sympathy for the…

    (April 26, 2015) Japan’s Kei Nishikori came back from breaks in both sets to defeat Spain’s Pablo Andujar 6-4, 6-4 to defend his title at the Barcelona Open. This is the second title that the world No. 5 has defended this year, he also repeated in Memphis in February. This is Nishikori’s ninth ATP career title.   “I’m really happy I’m able to defend the title,” said Nishikori. “I think the second set was extremely tough and I don’t really know how I won it to be honest.

    After two warm-up sets, we were in for an absolute thriller in the decider, as Angelique Kerber rallied from 5-3 down, when Caroline Wozniacki was serving for the title, won four straight games and engraved her name in the list of the Premier-level Porsche Tennis Grand Prix champions, staying undefeated this claycourt season and extending her winning streak to 11 matches, which now includes a Fed Cup match victory and two big titles (Charleston and Stuttgart).

The first one to join the round of the final four was Romania’s Simona Halep, who won her quarterfinal match against Sara Errani in straight sets.

A great occasion for me to share in my Little Tennis Stars section this old photo of the Slovak, that I've had in my archives for years. The WTA veteran is not in the limelight so much any more, and her ranking is now modest No.50 compared to her career-high of No.5 that she reached 12 years ago, but that doesn't mean that the Slovak is not adding achievements to her résumé. Earlier this year Hantuchova clinched her third PTT Thailand Open title, the seventh WTA winner's trophy…

    With the Australian Open behind us and just a few weeks to go until the French Open, the tennis season is now well under way and we're beginning to get an idea as to how this year could go in both the men's and women's game. The Australian Open always gives tennis fans an indication of how the top players are looking after the short winter break, but the landscape is often a lot different by the time the French Open comes around. While it looks set to be another open tournament for the women at Roland Garros at the end of May, there is a genuine feeling that the…

    By Mike McIntyre I've always enjoyed the ups and downs that a year on the ATP Tour can bring us. When you have a season that lasts from January (or even the end of December) until November you are bound to have ebbs and flows and an ever changing wave of momentum that sees players rise and fall at different times in the schedule. Seemingly impervious to these ups and downs in recent years have been Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal who currently sit at number one and two in the Emirates World Rankings. Yet as the final Grand Slam of 2014 is set to begin, both of these steady talents find…

    Eighteen-year-old Louisa Chirico and 17-year-old Katerina Stewart battled for nearly three hours this afternoon in Dothan, Alabama before Chirico came away with a 7-6(1), 3-6, 7-6(0) victory at the $50,000 Pro Circuit tournament.  Stewart, using her drop shot effectively, went up 4-2 in the final set, but could not serve it out at 5-4, double faulting at 15-40 to put Chirico right back in the match.  Stewart was able to get a difficult hold at 5-6, but played a poor tiebreaker, with Chirico just staying in points until Stewart made an unforced error.With Chirico's first title at the…

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,…

    A few years ago, a member of the WTA told a journalist that if all of the tour's eating disorders were cured, the top 20 would change dramatically. Some players' eating disorders have been easy to discern--those players have suddenly become frighteningly thin, and then just as quickly, they have become obviously overweight, then very thin again. Others may have eating disorders that are not as obvious to onlookers.Anxiety runs high among players in terms of performance, and that is to be expected in sport. Players who choke a lot are suffering with a form of anxiety, and this fear of…

The whole "I don't believe in wishing my opponent good luck" thing is ridiculous since the handshake isn't about "good luck"--it's about sport, and what sport is supposed to represent.

  • Maria Sharapova Withdraws from Fed Cup

    Nara
    16 Apr 2015 | 2:11 am
    Maria Sharapova has pulled out of the Fed Cup semi-final against Germany. She has been recovering from a leg injury that she has suffered in a WTA tournament in Miami. The Russian Fed Cup captain Anastasia Myskina said, that Maria was simply not ready. Vera Zvonareva will be replacing Maria.  It seems Sharapova was really disappointed to miss such an important tie which is going to take place in Sochi, a town very dear to Maria. “I was looking forward to my return to Sochi to play in the Fed Cup. It could be my life’s first ever experience – to play in the city where I grew up. And…

    25 Jan 2015 | 2:57 am
    The tennis fans have been speculating since yesterday. Who is the mystery man that the Russian tennis star Maria Kirilenko secretly married to this Saturday? There isn’t much available online, however, if we believe the reports coming from super.ru, Maria married to an influential Russian businessman named Alexei.  There are even photos showing presumably her with her new husband.  The article claims the wedding took place in an elite village (whatever that means) Usovo, in a restaurant Chalet Beryozka. The pair arrived in a white Rolls-Royce, and their motorcade was heavily guarded.

    Hey Y'all. Galileo here.Djokovic wants love. Not just love he gets from his wife and family. He wants to be loved. Roger walks onto a court he gets a standing ovation. Rafa walks onto court and the people rise like Pop Tarts in the toaster on a cold day. But Djokovic? Yes, he has fans. Yes, he is liked in many places, but is he loved? Is he even universally liked? The French crowd, in fact, actively dislike him. But then they don't really like anybody who doesn't speak French. Except maybe Graf and a few select others.It's not an exact science. There is no real data on this and it doesn't…

They wait eagerly for when the hard courts give way to their beloved clay. Then they play on the grass, collecting free checks and making up the numbers [not you Deliciano] before gratefully returning back to clay. Alas, after that it is to the hard courts they must return.

    You don’t want to bend your knees to get down on those balls.  You want to just bend over. But don’t do it! Bending over throws off your balance, changes your stroke mechanics and can result in lower back pain. Bending your knees does none of these and allows you to quickly get your body back in ready position for the next ball. Happy Tennis! © Kim Selzman 2015 All Rights Reserved

    The Changeover

  • The Reality of Tennis Adolescence

    Andrew Eccles
    21 Apr 2015 | 10:44 am
    President Theodore Roosevelt once said of his 19-year-old daughter, “I can do one of two things. I can be President of the United States or I can control Alice Roosevelt. I cannot possibly do both.”  We’ve all been (or are) adolescents – we can all recognise the strain we’ve put on our own parents, friends, or loved ones. Professional adolescence is real too – at 25, I have experienced this in my own career over the last several years: the awkward transition from wide-eyed, shell-shocked new worker to something resembling a functioning, professional, grown-ass human…

      It’s been 12 years since two Americans fought for the US Men’s Clay Court Championship. Back in 2003 it was a generational battle as well between the top two seeds in the event, with soon-to-be 33 year-old Andre Agassi taking down 20 year-old Andy Roddick in three sets. It’s interesting to look back to 2003 and notice that both men would end the season with one Slam title (Australian Open for Agassi, US Open for Roddick), and three combined Masters 1000 titles (Miami for the veteran, Canada and Cincinnati for the youngster). Agassi would finish the year in the number 4…

I had seen pretty much every point Chung had played so far at the US Men’s Clay Court Championship so far, and Verdasco is the defending champion. The match was slated into the 6 pm night session, which translated a as a “welcome to the big leagues” moment for Hyeon.

    To say that Madison Brengle is having the best season of her career would be putting it mildly. The 25-year-old is at a career-high ranking of No. 43, up over 100 spots from this time last year. In the Road to Singapore rankings, she’s up to No. 21. She made her splash in Australia, making it to the Round of 16 in Brisbane as a Qualifier, the final of Hobart as a Qualifier and the Round of 16 of the Australian Open.

The natural consequence of yet another main draw win for the South Korean teenager is that more and more people will want to see him play, and try to figure out just how good he can be. And as more folks get a look at the idiosyncratic way the 18 year-old approaches the sport, there will inevitably be a lot of discussions on his technique.

    The grapefruit is a large orange-like fruit that belongs to the citrus family. It is a somewhat “new” addition to the family, deriving from a natural cross-breeding between orange and pomelo, thus its size. The diameter of a grapefruit, depending on its variety, can range between four and six inches. Its albedo (the white matter under the skin) is about a quarter to half an inch thick. The fruit’s skin looks like that of an orange, but its flesh comes in white, pink or red. It is called a grapefruit simply because it grows in clusters, like grapes. The taste of a grapefruit can be…
