  • John Isner out, as is U.S. in Wimbledon 3rd round, a first since 1911

    The clock had ticked to one minute past 4 p.m. here Monday, and the last American standing at Wimbledon wasn’t standing anymore. John Isner, head hung low with body language that made him look closer to 6 feet than 6 feet 10, walked off Court 3,...

    The plight of U.S. tennis: too much money and mollycoddling?

  • Alize Cornet stuns Serena Williams at Wimbledon

    The inescapable conclusion, after watching a young French woman jerk Serena Williams around the tennis court at Wimbledon here Saturday like she had her on a string, is that Father Time has arrived for a talk. Maybe, in Williams’ case, it is...

    Nicolas Mahut still grinding on Wimbledon's outer courts
    The day dawned bright and sunny at Wimbledon on Tuesday, and the trains were packed with tennis fans wanting to see Roger and Rafa, or Serena and Maria. Or all four. Nobody was coming to see Nicolas Mahut, the French grinder. Which is too bad, because...
  • Serena Williams is only U.S. singles player still in the U.S. Open

    We may now have to think about Serena Williams as Custer, because she represents the last stand at the U.S. Open tennis tournament. That is, the last U.S. player standing. When the day began Saturday at the USTA Billie Jean King Tennis Center, there...

    Caroline Wozniacki outlasts Maria Sharapova in humid U.S. Open match
    — It is turning out to be the relationship that gives engagements a bad name. First, golf star Rory McIlroy calls off the wedding with tennis star Caroline Wozniacki and wins the British Open and the PGA. Then, Wozniacki starts a run of success...
  • Serena Williams might be a diva, but she's no quitter

    Serena Williams might be a diva, but she's no quitter
    Maybe she wore one too many flashy outfits. Or maybe it was that angry outburst toward a U.S. Open referee two years ago or maybe it's simply the Hollywood company she keeps (reality television star Kim Kardashian, in particular) that turned some people...
  • Andy Murray shows true Brit grit to win Wimbledon, make history

    WIMBLEDON, England — In many ways, Andy Murray's career was encapsulated in the last game he played before he became a first-time Wimbledon singles champion and the first British man to win the title since Fred Perry's 1936 triumph. The 26-year-...
