Devastated Kyrgios Shows High Class In Defeat

ballnet By Scoop Malinowski Nick Kyrgios had just lost to Grigor Dimitrov. His dream to win his first major was shattered. It was probably the worst, most excruciating moment of his career. To be playing the best tennis of his life with an entire nation vehemently supporting and backing his Herculean efforts...fighting with every ounce of passion and fury he could muster, only to helplessly watch Dimitrov's running forehand winner at 4-6 in the fourth set tiebreaker end the epic showdown 67 67 64 67. Head bowed, mind spinning, heart burning, eyes deadened, body limp, Kyrgios strode to the net a defeated man.

My Top Seven All Time Favorite Tennis Shoes

peteIn the last 25 years, the tennis shoe has exploded in creativity and diversity of different models. Each year, each footwear company produces new models, modified and enhanced from the previous years. The days of the simple and long-lasting Stan Smiths or Nike Bruins or Slazengers are long gone. You can go to a web site distributor like Tennis Warehouse and choose from literally hundreds of different tennis shoes. Recently I've been wondering and asking players what their all time favorite tennis shoes are. I decided to do my own list. Here it is...     3. The Nike Air Oscillate I loved the sleek, simple white look of the Oscillates and they must have been special because Pete Sampras seemed to wear them for over a half decade, never asking Nike to upgrade or modify, which is unusual today in that Nike is constantly changing and altering and creating new footwear models for Rafa and Roger.  Fantasic, solid shoe. I bought at least ten pairs of Oscillates. Continue to read full article...
