Roger Federer Loses to Novak Djokovic in Straight Sets at Dubai 500 Final

Published: February 26, 2011

commentNo Comments

Roger Federer gave up after losing 6-3 in the first set. An early break for Novak Djokovic meant an uphill climb that Federer seems to be unable to achieve these days. The match ended similar to other recent losses. After Federer went up 3-1 in the second set, Djokovic seemed unbreakable after Federer missed an easy overhead smash in the next game. It was like so many mistakes recently—Federer... 

Tiger Woods Continuing Failures Punctuated By Spitting His Way To A Fine

Published: February 15, 2011

commentNo Comments

Over the years of his youthful reign, we treated Tiger Woods as someone who could do no wrong. Many abhorred Fuzzy Zoeller’s reference to serving chicken. After all, Tiger Woods was a black man in an almost all-white sport. Tiger Woods was the best athlete in a world crowded by great athletes. We treated him as a king among men. We wanted him to win and overlooked his bad conduct whenever it... 

Rafael Nadal and Venus Williams: Are Injuries Sign of Future or Just the Past?

Published: January 27, 2011

commentNo Comments

One of the enduring facts of any tennis era is that injuries end careers. For many, a series of continuous injuries could mean that the player was rushed too early back into play, that there is some structural infirmity, or that the training is not proper. We have a history of seeing some injuries end careers, largely with knees, and others seemingly ending any sense of rhythm, ending any chance of... 

Li Na: A Star Is Born at the Australian Open!

Published: January 27, 2011

commentNo Comments

She looked the most athletic of all the final 16. Li Na‘s semis win against Caroline Wozniacki was huge and the postmatch interview was well worth the wait. A star is born! As she marches to the finals, every potential win is seen in her crisp groundstrokes, her tough serve and at times, her horrid net game. Li Na has become more than the darling of Asia. She is now ready to meet the world... 

Venus Williams: We Love and Will Miss You

She has graced women’s tennis like few other stars in any sport. A wonderful competitor. A quiet achiever. Almost never saying a bad word about anyone—and when doing so, doing it with grace and intelligence. A real lady. Venus Williams will be next seen in blue jeans. Can she be the commentator who we want to replace John McEnroe and/or Pam Shriver, both boors with little taste or likable... 

Australian Open Men’s Draw: Can Roger Federer Win More Majors in 2011?

Published: January 19, 2011

commentNo Comments

Unlike many sports, professional tennis is in large part a matter of seeding. Meet the right person at the right time and you advance. Meet the wrong person and you lose. The Australian Open is always this way. Working “Down Under” is tough enough for those who work halfway around the world. Perhaps partly for this reason, Australians dominated the event for years. The favorites who... 

U.S. Open 2010 Men’s Finals: Rafael Nadal Wins, Owns Career Grand Slam

Published: September 14, 2010

commentNo Comments

It was not clean. It was often far from pretty. But it was as expected. More power, more pace, and more mistakes meant a win for Rafael Nadal over Novak Djokovic. In the end, Nadal forced so many mistakes. The history of the match showed, once again, that it is easier to lose the match than to win it. And that despite being nearly even in winners, the man with the fewest unforced errors usually wins... 

2010 U.S. Open Tennis: Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in the Movies

Published: September 10, 2010

commentNo Comments

It was clear from the outset that Rafael Nadal had the easy way to the Finals. The results yesterday merely confirmed that no decent challenger has stood in his way from the beginning. They also confirmed that Nadal will be very hard to beat.  It is easy to see why New Yorkers can take to Nadal. He is a fierce competitor whose demeanor often reminds one of a combination of two of the most famous... 

2010 U.S. Open Tennis: Roger Federer Still on Course With All-Swiss Final

Published: September 9, 2010

commentNo Comments

Tennis in the wind is a funny game. Toss the ball too high, and it moves more. Hit the ball high, and it sails or stops and drops. Come to the net more and there are more chances since side line shots are more difficult to make and the tendency is to hit down the center of the court with much more margin for error. So it went for Roger Federer as he beat yet another player, fifth seeded Robin Soderling. In...
