Predict The Future Of Lukas Rosol


Does he continue to play like a dynamo and win the event?

Or does he come back to planet earth and lose in straights to Kohlschreiber?

Whoa, Nadal didn’t play poorly against Rasol, but Fed is throwing a dud against Benneteau. He’s righted the ship in the third up 3-0. And maybe Benneteau is remembering who he is, which never afflicted Rasol yesterday. But Benneteau should not be giving Federer problems on grass or any other surface. And Federer looks rather calm about the whole deal, like he’s either sure he’ll come back or not so unhappy about losing to an also-ran player.

This was the most amazing match. And why tennis unlike almost any other sport that I’ve watched in quite some time, brings the goods.

The Big 4 Has Been Winnowed Down to 2


Is there still anyone out there who thinks there’s a Big 4 anymore? I mean, the last four slams have been decided by Djokovic and
Nadal in the finals. Federer hasn’t reached a slam finals in, what?, nine slams! Murray is regressing since he came within a whisker of beating Djoko in the Aussie semis. His next coaching hire, I hear, is going to be Bjorn Borg.

Wild Week Before Wimbledon


Chrstina McHale has defeated former WTA #1 Caroline Wozniacki for the second time, this time on grass in Eastbourne, in three sets. Earlier this week Caro says she believes she can win Wimbledon. This result will not help her momentum.

David Nalbandian snapped in the final of Queens, in what has to be one of the most outrageous displays of court craziness, when he kicked a piece of ad wood that busted the shin of a linesman, drawing blood.

Mario Andretti Talks Tennis


For a recent Biofile, the auto racing legend Mario Andretti mentioned he played tennis. “Just about every day. I play quite a bit outdoors. We have a beautiful court (at home in Nazareth, PA). I’ve been playing since fairly late, started at around age 32. A lot of the Formula I racers were tennis players. I actually started in South Africa. Carlos Roitman, Clay Roizoni, Ronnie Peterson were playing quite a bit. There were beautiful clay courts in Austria where we played.”
