In boxing and tennis, I have learned, the champions often pick bits and pieces of former champions and use those attributes and qualities to create their own unique persona.

Mike Tyson famously, and admittedly, emulated the fierce passion and fury of Roberto Duran and Jack Dempsey. Iron Mike also admired the way Dempsey would help to raise up his fallen conquests after beating them, an ultimate show of sportsmanship and class, and he added that unlikely gesture to his persona.

Jim Courier

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK

Q. Jim, what did you do different today compared to the last five times you played him?
JIM COURIER: I won the last point, which is a start. Something I hadn’t been able to do five times against Andrei. I played a little smarter today. I was a little more patient than I had been in our past meetings, and that was really the difference. I served smarter, and just, you know, wasn’t over anxious out there.

I think Patrick’s a good coach.

Serena has won more majors after 30 than any champion in history and part – certainly not all but part – of that is his influence. Even basic things like getting her to change the racquet and strings was a huge benefit for her.

A day after one of the most unfortunate finals in Grand Slam history, Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin Del Potro restored respect and class to professional tennis with their thrilling confrontation.

Djokovic prevailed 63 76 63 by virtue of a devastating display of machine like efficiency and pinpoint accuracy. When Djokovic is operating at his highest level there is no man from history who can topple him.

Like a “street artist” sullying the neighborhood with graffiti, Serena Williams defaced and ruined today’s US Open women’s open final with an astonishing display of uncontrolled rage and unsportsmanlike conduct.

The lead story should be that Japanese woman Naomi Osaka became the first person from her country to win a Grand Slam title with a stunning 62 64 triumph over the 36 year old American.By Scoop Malinowski

Does Federer Subconsciously Duck Rafa and Djokovic?

By Scoop Malinowski

Ducking happens in one on one sports, it happens in pro boxing and it happens in tennis, perhaps even at the highest level.

After Federer lost to John Millman this week, I made a comment on a Facebook post about the match suggesting that maybe Federer subconsciously tanked to Millman to avoid having to face Djokovic in the next round.

McEnroe’s Millman Comments

By Scoop Malinowski

You decide if John McEnroe said anything offensive or disrespectful of John Millman’s game vs Novak Djokovic in their US Open quarterfinal, which was derided by Bjorn Fratangelo and Mitchell Krueger on Twitter …

During his career as a player John McEnroe regularly pissed off the establishment with his rebellious behavior.

Leave it to Nick Kyrgios to spark the biggest controversy of the US Open … so far.

Today Nick was getting trounced by Pierre Hugues-Hebert on court 17. Nick double-faulted to squander the first set 4-6 and was down 0-3 in the second. The crowd was booing what appeared to be another Kyrgios tank. One witness said he saw Nick mutter to his box, “I’m done.”
