The King of Clay at Wimbledon

As much as I respect Rodger Federer’s run of eight Wimbledon championships in the last fifteen years, I loved watching Rafa Nadal win his two championships in 2008 and 2010. Many critics and fans alike say that his five-set win over Roger Federer in 2008 was the...

Federer is the King of Wimbledon. Almost.
Federer is the King of Wimbledon. Almost.

Federer will be in the Wimbledon final. He’s shown us in the past two weeks that he’s the man to beat. As usual, Federer played two grass court tune ups on his way to Wimbledon. The results were very familiar. In Stuttgart he beat a resurgent Milos Raonic in the...

Nick Kyrgios is the Master of Tweeners

As predicted in some of my earlier blogs, Kyrgios seems to be back in form after a long absence due to injuries. Last week he made it to the semi-finals of the Stuttgart Open, where he ran into the GOAT, Roger Federer, and lost in three tough sets 7-6, 2-6, 6-7. This...

Simona Halep is Amazing

Dimitrov is a mystery to me
Dimitrov is a mystery to me

His game looks exactly like Roger Federer’s. They call him Fed Jr. He’s had some amazing results. He won the year end championships in 2017 and looked like he was on the rise. He was the 4th seed at the French Open. The expectations have always been super high, but...

5 Reasons I love Gael Monfils

Unfortunately, Monfils lost in five tough sets to David Goffin from Belgium in the third round of the French Open. However, as always, he did in style, taking those in attendance on a wild ride. He held four match points in the fourth set on Goffin’s serve, but it was...

Serena is a Tennis Super Hero After All

Just a couple of months ago I was talking about how Sharapova should shelf her fancy outfits. I used both Serena and Federer as examples of top players that had pretty much done away with fancy outfits and were just focused on winning. I referenced shiny, gold blazers...

Sharapova and Djokovic Hitting Their Stride

Maria Sharapova In the past couple of months, I’ve been a Sharapova naysayer – and rightly so. Her results this year have been dismal. For a player of her caliber and trajectory, it has been nothing short of a complete disappointment. We all expected this five-time...
