When we talk about  the best “shot-makers” in men’s tennis, not all of us will be defining the term the same way. For our purposes here we blend pure aesthetics with compulsory success.  Each man selected won at least one major. Britain’s Tim Henman, for example, played superlative tennis, but he did not succeed on the biggest stages where ultimately all tennis players... 

Women’s Tennis Power Rankings: Aussie Kim Rules After Winning Down Under

At that point, the elder...

2007 Remember the U.S. Open in 2007?  Remember how happy Novak Djokovic was and how happy he made the New York crowds with his impersonations of the top players like Maria Sharapova, Andy Roddick, Roger Federer and even Rafael Nadal? While the guys growled, seemingly a little scratchy about his antics, Sharapova loved it and even sat in the Serb’s box with his parents!  Life was good...

The thought of Novak Djokovic’s mom once again pronouncing gleefully, “The King is dead!” might have been the ultimate capper on an already miserable 2011 Australian Open semifinal for Roger Federer fans. That magical moment from the 2008 Australian Open still sends shivers of revulsion down the spines of a legion of the Maestro’s avid supporters.  While that did not happen... 

Australian Open 2011: Will Andy Murray Join Novak Djokovic in the Final?

Their names roll off the tongue easily like Simon and Garfunkel, Abbott and Costello, Batman and Robin—Djokovic and Murray. It is hard to say one name without adding the other.  They are linked inevitably as part of the current tennis landscape because they have existed as backups to the top two guys, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Like the ingenue treading the boards waiting backstage...

Great rivalries engage fans, stir the media, and swell attendance.  It does not matter if the contenders meet in the ring, on the gridiron or on the fabled lawns of Wimbledon.  When the two rivals stare each other down before the game begins, the outcome rivets our attention. In the Open Era of tennis, fans flocked to watch Borg vs. McEnroe, Evert vs. Navratilova––or feel free...

It used to take 45 days on a ship to get to Australia from Europe. For that reason, in the early days, the Australian Championships were not well-attended by players outside of Australia and, at times, or even by their own players.  But as the world grew smaller, the importance of this colorful slam down under grew until now it ranks up there with the other three, receiving the attention from...
