Photo Of The Day: Roger’s World

When you’re on your way from California to Miami, it’s only natural to make a quick stop in Orlando, Florida to visit Walt Disney World. That’s what Roger Federer did on Monday, as he posed with Mickey and Minnie Mouse at Magic Kingdom. Roger tweeted: Caught between two mice #mousetrap. No word on weather the Federer […]

Reflections: Australian Open Day 6

Match of the day: [22] Grigor Dimitrov def [11] Milos Raonic 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 to reach his first ever fourth round of a Grand Slam.

Reflections: Australian Open Day 3

Win of the day: Colin Fleming & Ross Hutchins def Marinko Matosevic and Michal Przysiezny 4-6, 6-4, 6-0.

Photo Of The Day: Federer Switches To Larger Racquet

It’s been the much talked about gear change on the tennis tour: Roger Federer is switching to a larger racquet. It’s all anyone can talk about these days and even Chrissie Evert had an opinion, saying “If that racquet enhances his serve and his forehand, it’s a good move because those are the two big shots I see in […]

Photo Of The Day: Get Delpo More Racquets

We learned in Paris that Juan Martin del Potro was down to his last two racquets. One would have hoped he could have gotten more before London, but he didn’t. Would it have been the difference? Del Potro lost to Roger Federer Saturday and lost his chance at advancing to the World Tour Finals semifinal. […]

I’ve posted my favorites, including Maria Sharapova, Aga Radwanska, Andrea Hlavackova, Laura […]
