  • Tennis Season Back in Motion

    All the top players, most notably Federer and Nadal, are back in action this week at the Rogers Cup in Montreal. This is part of the US Open Series that leads up to the US Open. Federer’s coming off a hot streak, winning Madrid, the French Open, and Wimbledon; regaining no.1 ranking; and having twin…

  • Federer Wins Record 15th Major, 6th Wimbledon

    TMF now has the most grand slam victories in history. Wow, that was an unbelievable match. Another Wimby EPIC. Federer d. Roddick 5-7 7-6 7-6 3-6 16-14 Check out this amazing ATP tribute:

  • Karlovic Can Only Serve

    Tennis fans already know this about Dr. Ivo but if Karlovic didn’t have that powerful serve, I’m pretty sure Federer could have bageled him 3 times. Breaking Karlovic in each of the first 2 sets was impressive, especially the way Federer was returning in the games he broke. Karlovic volleyed poorly but I think that…

  • French Open: Road to Semis

    Yes, another French Open post. Murray has just lost and I wasn’t surprised at all because while Murray has improved, he’s still not really great on clay. And Soderling shows his win over Nadal was no fluke, when he beat Davydenko pretty handily earlier today. I had actually thought Davydenko would come through since he’d…

  • French Open Week 1 Roundup

    I woke up today, checked some tennis sites, and had my jaw hit the desk and I let out a very audible “OH MY GOD!”. It was that shocking. Nadal lost at the French Open. In the 4th round, to Robin Soderling! You know, I’m a die hard Federer fan but that doesn’t mean I…

  • Federer and Cahill

    It seems rumors have been swirling for weeks that Roger Federer may hire Darren Cahill as a coach. Recently, it was confirmed Federer is currently training in Dubai with Cahill. Supposedly, nothing’s definite and they’re testing the waters. But it’s certainly an interesting development since many have suggested The Mighty Fed needs a good coach.

  • Federer Wins 2008 US Open, 13th Grand Slam

    Federer beat Andy Murray in the final in straight sets (6-2, 7-5, 6-2) to win his 13th grand slam and 5th straight US Open! Finally, he grabbed the last grand slam of the year. I thought Murray was really going to give him a fight, considering how well he played against Nadal. Congrats, Roger!

  • Federer Will Bounce Back

    Federer’s a champ – he’ll bounce back. The loss hit him pretty hard but don’t think he’s just going to lay down his racket. Just wait and see. It’s going to be very hard, what with all the points he needs to defend, but I really want to see him come back roaring and maintain…

  • OMG, ARE YOU PEOPLE WATCHING THIS?

    This Wimbledon final is unbelievable. We’re going to a 5th set. Wow. Just WOW! UPDATE: Well, I’m disappointed Federer lost, but give Nadal credit – he played a great match. Both played unbelievably well. That was probably one of the best matches I’ve ever watched (if not THE best). That was seriously incredible tennis. These…

  • So Many Pundits Writing Off Federer

    I’ve been seeing so many articles and videos of people picking Nadal to win Wimbledon. I want to see Federer prove them wrong. He’s been playing flawless tennis – few unforced errors and incredible serving. I think it’s going to be very, very difficult to break Federer’s service games. But I would have to agree…
