There are many things to take into account when playing against 6ft 11in Ivo Karlovic. Not only does the obscenely tall Croatian a threat from his serve, he packs plenty of power behind his forehand and can’t be lobbed easy. But failing to combat any of those in their Colombian Open clash in Bogota yesterday, […]


Roger Federer lost out on the chance to win his eighth Wimbledon title after Novak Djokovic beat him in five sets in Sunday’s final. And he was unable to hide his emotion. ESPN caught the moment Federer shed a tear – and it is literally the saddest thing ever… in slow motion: We’re sorry to get […]


Andy Murray‘s reign as Wimbledon champion will end on Sunday when a new man holds the SW19 trophy aloft. He was dumped in straight sets by Grigor Dimitrov at the quarter-final stage, ending an unforgettable year for the world No5. And going by some of the media reports post-match, it seems Murray has now gone […]


Splitting your time between playing at Wimbledon and watching your team at the World Cup – it can’t be easy. But Swiss duo Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka, who play each other today on Centre Court, managed to find the perfect balance as they took to Twitter to support Ottmar Hitzfeld‘s side against Argentina. And even Argentine Juan […]


Women competing at this year’s Wimbledon tournament are having to play bra-less due to the All England Club’s “archaic” all-white clampdown, former champion Pat Cash claims. Players have had to cope with new rules introduced on any inclusion of colour on their playing attire, with a coloured trim of just 1cm width now permitted. However 1987 […]


With the World Cup in Brazil dominating our TV screens and newspapers recently, Wimbledon has got off to a rather low-key start. But one of the highlights of the Grand Slam event so far was Novak Djokovic’s incredible display of sportsmanship against Czech tennis ace Radek Stepanek yesterday. The moment came late in the fourth […]


Roger Federer is always a big attraction given his hero status in tennis. But the crowd he got as he warmed up with doubles partner Marco Chiudinelli before the Gary Weber Open in Germany this week is pretty ridiculous. The seven-time Wimbledon champion posed for the cameras during the open training session and looked delighted to see so […]


We have always known that Novak Djokovic is a pretty cool guy. However, during a rain-soaked day at Roland Garros yesterday he quite possibly took his place as the coolest sports star in the world as he chilled during a rain delay with a ball boy, sharing a drink with him.

Nicolas Mahut lost to Kazakhstan’s Mikhail Kukushkin at the French Open on Monday. We repeat, Nicolas Mahut lost to Kazakhstan’s Mikhail Kukushkin at the French Open on Monday. Sadly our repetition comes a little too late for one sports reporter, who embarrassingly congratulated Mahut under the belief that the Frenchman had in fact won his disappointing match… By […]


Canadian tennis ace Eugenie Bouchard was in Vatican City yesterday and managed to take a celebrity selfie of the highest caliber… Bouchard lost her match at the Rome Open with Italy’s Francesca Schiavone in straight sets on Monday. So she was clearly looking for a bit of spiritual guidance when she sensationally snapped the Holy Father in the Popemobile. […]
