3) If you missed it, Sloane Stephens is this week’s • No, but she sure came close. And it must so heartening that she has become an unconditional, unqualified tennis favorite. I don't recall you mentioning Rafa when celebrating Federer's win at Wimbledon. You could have mentioned their rivalry when you got down to that part of the list, no? His potential showdown with Nadal was a storyline starting in July. Sevastova for her clever tennis and takedown of Sharapova. I suspect that during that hug at the net, she counseled Keys to go off court for a few minutes, to compose herself and so that she would not have to watch Stephens' celebration with her box. I understand that the rivalry between Federer and Nadal is what makes for riveted TV viewing. Would it also be possible that with Federer nowhere, Nadal would ride the confidence carried over from French and Wimbledon into the hard courts (circa 2006-2007) and could have ended up with a better distributed Slam count?
Often we don't appreciate athletes until they're gone. Love the most recent thoughts post-Open, very reasoned and measured. In the search for a storyline and then an alternate post-Roger/Rafa storyline, and even with the "Rafa beatdown-city" storyline, I was struck with: "The heck with storylines, tennis is about leveling up and TAKING it." Taking it is what got Anderson to the final and what Delpo did to Roger, and was the core of Sloane Stephens’s amazing relentlessness. • Federer and Nadal are the spindles around which the men’s game currently rotates. You don't think his loss was among the top stories? Then to sit with Keys after, to talk and share a laugh—well, that's class! You alluded to this in your thoughts about the uneven distribution of the Nadal slam count on TV with Courier and Co. Federer would have more majors, were it not for Nadal. And yet both—and I think they both appreciate this—are better off the existence of the other.
Kerber, however, is assured of regaining the number one ranking from injured Serena Williams next week.
1) Most recent podcast guest Paul Annacone was terrifically prescient. 2) Dirk Nowitzki is our next guest in advance of his annual tennis fundraiser. I was disappointed you had to mention Roger Federer in the opening paragraph of your 50 Parting Thoughts from the U. Rafa and Federer are the Evert-Navratilova of men's tennis, but why not in this instance just celebrate Rafa alone? Unless you’re a WTA player during a non-Slam and your tour has cynically decided that, rather than confront cheaters, it would just distort and contort the sport’s essence and make coaching legal. Total respect for Sloane Stephens..even for the match, but for the concern she showed for Madison Keys after. Does that highlight the singular problem that Nadal poses for Federer or that Nadal has more people to solve at other Slams?
Maybe that’s not as profound as it seems to me now, but that’s the beauty of peak Nadal, just an "all-in" taking of the match. (Just as Serena serves that role with the women.) Federer, at 36, was in a race for No. And that's real friendship, when you take the time to support the emotional needs of a friend while celebrating the biggest moment in your life. Not only did a rival push them to improve and innovate; but they are immune from the (often circular and bogus) charge that they thrived in a weak era.
Especially at the end of the year, when it’s an open secret that some players are physically compromised and there without genuine ambitions of winning. But does winning an eight-man event compare to a 64-draw Masters 1000? Or playing on the worst kind of racial stereotypes in order to explain her own futility? We’re excerpting Sharapova’s book on later this week so, in the interest of balance, we’re entitled to link this takedown. The dilemma for the athlete: you’re being paid an advance to dish and settle scores and provide insight. But should an active player be talking about another active player so candidly? You always reserve the first four spots for exclusive raves about the men's winner, the women's winner, then the runner ups, in that order. • Players and coaches can only confer when there is an authentic break, such as a rain delay. By simply substituting one for the other, Federer would have six more majors but Nadal would only have three more.
Kyrgios unleashed a sublime serving performance to beat Djokovic in the Mexico Open quarter-finals in Acapulco two weeks ago and they will go toe to toe again after the former world number one defeated Juan Martin del Potro 7-5, 4-6, 6-1."It was definitely difficult to overcome this challenge tonight," Djokovic said.
Kyrgios and world number two Djokovic will contest a round of 16 fixture after the Australian number 15 seed took just 73 minutes to beat highly regarded German Alexander Zverev 6-3, 6-4 in what was billed as the 'next-gen battle'.
Breaks in the third and ninth games helped Kyrgios claim the first set, before another break of the 18th-seeded Zverev's serve in the 10th game of the second iced the win."He's been playing great tennis and on the rise ever since juniors.
Rublev — Rubi, as he’s known — was simply the superior, savvier and defter player on the court, particularly in the clutch second-set tiebreak.“It was a tough match,” Goffin said. He is the youngest male to achieve such heights at the American major since Andy Roddick in 2001.“This is going to be a good challenge for me to see how far I am from top players and how much more I need to work,” said Rublev, who didn’t survive qualifying a year ago.
“So we’ll see.”The young Russian, who cracked the top 50 this past spring, surpassed Shapovalov quietly and with minimal notice, grinding his way through four rounds of tennis. I can play really fast, in fast rhythm.”Nadal, after tidily dusting off Alexandr Dolgopolov of the Ukraine 6-2, 6-4, 6-1, set about playing some mind games on Rublev.
"The third set was probably the best tennis that I played this year and I'm just glad I was able to pick up my game."The winner of Kyrgios versus Djokovic will meet the victor of the Federer and Nadal clash, which is the most anticipated showdown at the Indian Wells Masters in light of not only their career head-to-head meetings but also their thrilling Australian Open decider in late January.
