    Gotta give credit for Nole, but

    A big part of long-term success is being healthy when the stakes are highest. Federer is a great example. He rarely has to look back on a match and say, "I was not at my physical best due to injury or recovery process." At his peak he destroyed most challengers with his skill and consistent...

    Safarova/Ivanovic: who will hand the match to the opponent on a silver platter?

    Sadly, when it got really tense at the end, it became a question of which player would make more mistakes, rather than which player would rise up and demonstrate a Serena Williams-like will to win.

    John McEnroe knows that Jerzy Janowicz is 6' 8"

    ..and he reminded us of this fact approximately 100 times during the match against Monfils. Clearly Mac is suffering from some height envy and I also think he may be in love with Janowicz.

    So seriosuly ....who watched the US open final

    I watched live. I was pulling for Nishikori. One got the feeling early on that once Cilic got a break of serve, each set was over. So, the question: are we looking at the next Djokovic or the next Safin?

    The Williams Sisters & Li Na are old their losses no surprise

    I'd like to be an "ancient" 34 ;-) Though your point is well-taken I have to disagree with your assertion that "Li Na and the Williams Sisters make women tennis so interesting." I'd rather watch paint dry. Give me more Muguruzas and Bouchards any day! cheers

    How do you manage your time

    And I thought I had it good. This sounds like a fantasy existence. I assume you don't have kids?

    French commentator comedy (Serena's weight)

    If Serena is a pound less than 185 I'll eat my hat.

    French commentator comedy (Serena's weight)

    That is funny. I'll refrain from actual Serena weight predictions and will instead post this picture below to give you an idea of what I think she actually weighs. BTW wta website says 5' 9", 150 lbs. Sure...

    Does Mardy Fish have pockets?

    I believe Mardy's balls are in her pocket:

    Why all the hate for Wozniaki?

    Speak for yourself chief. Average at best, somewhat Amazonian, oddly rounded lower face area for someone who is supposed to be in such great physical condition. Big girl, no question, suspected donut eater, you can have her.

    Rafa is taking injections in his foot to keep playing @ Wimbledon

    I think there is some truth to this. One has to wonder if Nadal will end up shortening his career. I'd have to say the writing has been on the wall for awhile, but he continues to win and has had very few extended injury periods. The big issue -- which is probably impossible for Nadal to put...

    why is nbc showing murray instead of fish?

    They want to be sure Lopez is shown live blowing a kiss to Murray's mother.

    I don't know who wrote this AP article, but it is well done

    Sports journalism is usually uninspiring and rarely worth a second look. This AP article covering the Nadal/Federer F.O. final is an exception. I thought it was very well done and worth reading.

    2011 NBA Playoffs

    I'm going to back up a bit and take OKC over Dallas due to the Nowitzki choke factor and the Durant greatness factor (spiced with the Westbrook greatness factor). When OKC is on I tune in. Such an exciting team to watch and Durant is just exceptional. I think, unfortunately, Nowitzki will...

    Nadal News

    Rumor has it that you cannot give credit where it is due. Talk about performing under pressure. Djokovic goes into a bigtime final against the best player in the world and he's sporting a 31-0 record. He leaves the court 32-0. This is a massive accomplishment worthy of a massive celebration...

    Federer can't turn back time

    Dude. Did I miss something? When did Federer end up in the same class as those broken-down sad sacks and announce a comeback? Granted he's not as good as he once was, but he's got a lot of good tennis left in him. Also, calling him old is silly. Sure by pro tennis standards he older, but...

    Venus Williams' fashion

    Unless I'm mistaken, she's in better physical shape now than before. I saw her recently in doubles with Isner and the high socks and often-unusual outfits don't look so bad on her now that she's more fit.

    Wertheim: "Mary Carillo will be conspicuously missed at ESPN"

    No question they were kicking Blake while he was down and they repeated themselves way too often. Just switch to another match already, we got the point. However, none of what was said was inaccurate. Blake is one of many athletes the world over who were pampered quite a bit growing up and...

    Wertheim: "Mary Carillo will be conspicuously missed at ESPN"

    You mean like Gimelslob? But...we do need new voices. There are plenty of former players out there who would be good a this job. I guess they just don't want to do it.
