  • Roger Federer's game doesn't look old at Indian Wells

    When most of the smoke had cleared Wednesday in the men's singles at Indian Wells, the coolest dude still standing was the guy in the purple shirt and orange shoes who has two kids and another on the way. Oh, yes, and he's 32 years old. Roger...
  • Novak Djokovic in Wimbledon final; downside is he faces Roger Federer

    It's hard to feel sorry for Novak Djokovic, but we need to. For the second straight Wimbledon tennis tournament, he is positioned as the spoiler, Mr. Buzz Kill. Life is not fair. Certainly, not life in pro tennis. Djokovic has it all. When he held off...

    Andy Murray presses home-court edge, reaches Wimbledon quarterfinals
    WIMBLEDON, England — More than ever, Andy Murray is feeling right at home in a place, and at a tennis tournament, where he is embraced like nowhere else. And why shouldn't Wimbledon embrace him? He won last year, after 77 years between male...
  • Will Federer and Williams be calling it a fortnight after Wimbledon?
