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...

Serena is a Tennis Super Hero After All
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...

The Year of the Comeback
The Year of the Comeback
