Did Federer lose the crowd too?

By Scoop Malinowski There comes a time when the most beloved, vibrant, inspiring champions lose their magic and the public loses their passion and devotion for the certain player. I remember when I first realized this aspect of tennis, talking about the US Open with my friend LeRoy Neiman, the renowned artist. I remember his exact quote which is still in my head, "I'm tired of watching Agassi." This was in the last two or three years of Agassi's career. Continue to read full article...

Focusing On Wimbledon Third Round Matchups

By Scoop Malinowski We're now into the stage of Wimbledon where each player has won two rounds and their game levels and confidences are rising. We're into the meat and potatoes of the tournament. The match-ups in the third round can make or break a tournament and in some cases, a career. Let's take a look at the third round matchups... Federer vs Struff: Fed leads the series 2-0 but both matches were of the 64 76 variety, which suggests a shocker is possible. Struff has the firepower and the volleys to trouble Roger.

My favorite day one Wimbledon matches

If I was at Wimbledon this year, these are the matches I would be observing live from the press row... Court 16 McDonald vs Berankis, two sub six footers, both long overdue for a major breakout. Two feisty but powerful players, this one has five sets written all over it. Berankis in five. Court 17 Karlovic vs Youzhny, two veterans both pushing 40 and both ranked now around the 100 zone. Both are desperate for some wins and points to get back into the ATP main draw mix. The loser of this match could be finished. The winner too. Very important match for both. Youzhny in four.

Is Kyrgios About To Revolutionize Tennis?

By Scoop Malinowski Nick Kyrgios is cruising along, quietly posting up excellent results. Nobody expects anything major from Nick at this point, there have been too many false alarms and injuries and tanked results. But what if Nick is as sly as a fox? What if he's softened everyone up to expect the next crash or tank but this time he's going to show us all the real, ultimate mature model of Nick Kyrgios, the one we've been frustratingly waiting to see for years?

Krajicek Implies Djokovic Superiority Over Federer

  Former Wimbledon champion Richard Krajicek may have committed tennis blasphemy by asserting that Novak Djokovic is the superior player overall than Roger. Krajicek believes Federer's greatest achievement was becoming no. 1 again in 2012:  his 'biggest result, because Federer managed to overcome (Novak) Djokovic and (Andy) Murray who were in good form that year.' Krajicek added, 'What makes Federer special is that he played at the highest level for sixteen years and achieved the record Grand Slam titles."

Garbine Muguruza’s Wimbledon Victory Overview

Garbine Muguruza won the 2017 Wimbledon Women’s Singles after defeating legendary Venus Williams in a shockingly one-sided victory, which ended 7-5, 6-0 in a short and stunning two-set match. 2016 French Open champion Muguruza lost the 2015 Wimbledon finals to Venus’ sister Serena Williams, so this year marked her chance to get back on the grass and show the world what she was capable of. Muguruza did just that, with an almost flawless Wimbledon run that saw her drop only a single set (to Kerber) throughout the competition. Continue to read full article...
