    As terrible as the choke was....

    Why is Federer even having to defend his legacy right now? At frigging 38? Do tennis authorities not see the crisis here? It almost feels as though the rise in prize money has led to a decline in motivation. You collect a great pay check for making the Quarters, go home, chill. Where is the...

    Fed-Wawrinka Wimbledon 2014

    Easily the best match I've seen Stan play on grass. Roger not moving too well but overall, some great all-court tennis (loved the smile on Edberg's face at one point). Wish we could see these two in the final someday.
