  2. The wild world that is the WTA

    Peter Bodo

    It feels just like old times around the ATP Tour these days -- that is if 2006 can be said to be a long time ago. You remember 2006, when Roger Federer was busy winning everything in sight. Sunday in the Cincinnati Masters 1000 final, the Swiss once ...

  4. Will Nadal, Federer eat Djoker's dust?

    Peter Bodo

    I remember when Rafael Nadal was desperately trying to catch up to the pacesetter on the ATP Tour, working to expand beyond his clay-court empire and get within striking distance of the top. And I recall when Roger Federer was likewise engaged, hopin...

    Peter Bodo

    The Tennis Masters Cup, the ATP Tour's year-end championships, is bearing down on us, with a new home in London's brand-new O2 Arena. The Shanghai experiment (the YEC was played there for the past four years) now looks like a woefully unsuc...

  8. Serena still Serena; Federer still Federer

    Peter Bodo

  9. More exhibition than Armageddon?

    Peter Bodo

    Peter Bodo

    The ATP World Tour Finals won't boast a "dream final" this year (that is, a winner-take-all battle for the year-end No. 1 ranking), but it has what might be the next best thing: A spectacular grudge match between two men whose rivalry already has his...
