RAFA: “I’M PLAYING BETTER AND BETTER”…BUT BOUCHARD IS OUT…

Rafael Nadal insists he is moving in the right direction after he defeated Quentin Halys 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 in the opening match of his Roland Garros title defence.

Murray through, Lopez out…and is Sharapova ill?

WHY THE BIG GUNS FEAR AUSSIE NICK

He is 20 years old, armed with passion and extremely dangerous. Now the big guns of tennis are sure of one thing: they won’t want to play Nick Kyrgios at Wimbledon – or anywhere else, for that matter. Conqueror of Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon last year, the brilliant Australian recently took down the great Roger […]

We all know Serena Williams is one of the greatest tennis players of all time. But can she become the undisputed greatest female player ever, backed by the statistics and history books? It’s a tough ask.  Margaret Court, the powerful Australian, won an incredible 24 singles slams in the 1960s and 1970s. Serena “only” has […]
