Wimbledon 2018: Men’s Final Preview: Novak Djokovic vs. Kevin Anderson

This is it. The finale to Wimbledon 2018 is upon us. Kevin Anderson versus Novak Djokovic. Each already the performer of (at least) one miracle this tournament, now they face-off in a contest that can give only one the redemption...

Wimbledon 2018: Women’s Singles Final Preview: Serena Williams vs. Angie Kerber

A remarkable tournament that has just kept on giving, the question everyone is asking is: what could it possibly have left? In Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber, the hope is "plenty". Two former world number ones, both desperate for another...

Wimbledon 2018 Men’s Semifinals Preview: Nadal vs. Djokovic; Anderson vs. Isner

As far as grand slam semifinals go, you could hardly have two matches that are any more different – and yet, strangely similar in one important way. In John Isner and Kevin Anderson, you have two players who have more-or-less...

Wimbledon 2018: Women’s Semifinals Preview

Serena Williams. Julia Goerges. Angelique Kerber. Jelena Ostapenko. In a women's draw filled with plenty of twists and turns, perhaps its biggest trick is to leave us with a final four that is largely unsurprising. Three major titlists, all with...

Wimbledon 2018: Men’s Quarterfinals Preview

As far as men's quarterfinals fields at Wimbledon go, they don't get much better than this. Juan Martin Del Potro, Kei Nishikori, Milos Raonic, Kevin Anderson, John Isner and – for the first time since 2011 – Roger Federer, Rafael...

Wimbledon 2018: Women’s Quarterfinals Preview

Suffice to say, it's been a particularly weird tournament for the women at Wimbledon. Case-in-point, the eclectic octet making up today's quarterfinals. Two major champions, two top-20 supporting players, a rising star, a journeywoman, a one-time bridesmaid and the 181st...

Wimbledon 2018 Day 7 Preview: Manic Monday

There's no day on the tennis calendar quite like it -- Manic Monday 2018 is upon us. Sixteen fourth round matches across six courts, no single day at any other tournament provides such a smorgasbord of tennis. Especially this year, Monday's...

Wimbledon 2018 Day 6 Preview: Djokovic, Kasatkina and Zverev in action

Finally, a return to normal. Well, sort of. After the chaos that was the opening four days here at Wimbledon, Friday's events seem relatively tame by comparison. After all, we only lost 2017 finalist Venus Williams, semifinalist Sam Querrey, and...

Wimbledon 2018 Day 5 Preview: Federer, Venus and Querrey on Deck

Ok, now this is just getting silly. It's like Wimbledon looked at the World Cup and said "hold my beer". Local hope Johanna Konta, 2017 finalist Marin Cilic, and 2017 women's champion Garbine Muguruza were all bounced out of the...

Wimbledon 2018 Day 4 Preview: Highlighted by Kerber, Nishikori and Shapovalov

Another day, another top women's player out. So long, Caroline Wozniacki. Up against a swarm of flying ants and an opponent who seemingly has the wood on her, the reigning Australian Open champ fell in three tumultuous sets 6-4, 1-6,...
