Federer and Djokovic Discover Perils of Humour

Locker Room

August 29, 2018

Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic are through to the second round of the US Open – though not without incident.

Although Roger was broken as he tried […]

Locker Room

August 28, 2018

Andy Murray won his first Grand Slam match since Wimbledon 2017 in what he described as a ‘new beginning.’ Meet the new Scot. Just the same as the old Scot. Well not quite. Not yet anyway. But at least he is feeling his way steadily and moving in the right general direction. Crashed Other big […]

Is Novak Djokovic The Best Ever?

Locker Room

August 20, 2018

When Novak Djokovic jumped for joy after beating Roger Federer 6-4, 6-4 in Cincinnati, he knew he had made history. The first man to win all nine Masters 1000 titles. Not forgetting that he was already the first man in the open era to hold all four Grand Slam titles simultaneously. Outstanding So that begs […]

Stefanos Tsitsipas – Serious Box Office!

Locker Room

August 13, 2018

Stefanos Tsitsipas may have been edged out by Rafael Nadal in Toronto, but he also won the right to be called the exciting future of tennis. And why shouldn’t the 20-year-old Greek with the flowing locks and movie-star looks not light up Wimbledon 2019? Bjorn Borg did it back in the 1970s. He had screaming […]

Wimbledon wouldn’t be Wimbledon without the Americans!

USA

August 7, 2018

Try to imagine Wimbledon over the years without Americans. It just wouldn’t have been the same, would it? Rebellious, record-breaking, glamorous or utterly brilliant, the Americans always add something – and that’s why we can’t wait to welcome them. Although an American man hasn’t won the singles title since Pete Sampras, they haven’t stayed out […]

The Canadians are coming!

Canada

July 31, 2018

Whisper it softly, but there is a love affair going on between the Canadians and Wimbledon. You can feel it in the air. The Canadians are good enough to achieve the big Wimbledon singles breakthrough in 2019. In a sense it has already happened. Milos Raonic  reached the Wimbledon final in 2016 – and Eugenie […]

Wimbledon

July 18, 2018

Real Tennis explained by former world No 1 Katrina Allen. Tennis as we know it today took off in the 1870s but it comes from the game known as “Real Tennis”, invented by French monks in the 12th century.  At one point, the game was the national sport in France and there were thousands of courts around the country.

Locker Room

July 15, 2018

Novak Djokovic roared to the heavens after winning his fourth Wimbledon title, despite a gallant comeback from Kevin Anderson. There was relief, there was joy, there was even the release of years of frustration and anger in that cry of triumph. At last, the realisation that the bad times were over. Amazing Anderson only belatedly […]

Kerber Wins Wimbledon To Deny Serena History

Locker Room

July 14, 2018

Angelique Kerber spoilt Serena’s party by winning her first Wimbledon title with some supremely free-flowing tennis. Serena, in contrast, never relaxed. Her drive volley in the final game, with all the court beckoning, flew hopelessly long as if to illustrate the point. Angelique enjoyed being underdog. Her game was fluent. Glory came swiftly, and the […]
