    Is sportsmanship lost in pro tennis?

    I watched this point, where murray showed lack of sportsmanship. Clearly he should concede the point to tonylars. Instead murray complains and weasels replay. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9PG0nbC-Js&feature=related

    Should Serena Williams retire from tennis?

    Serena Williams has shown she is no longer prepared to put in the proper time and effort training required to compete at a "glam slam" event level. Her lack of match toughness and general lack of fitness were very evident during the Australian Open. I believe the time has come for her to put...
