  3. Yet another year-end best and worst list -- sort of

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    If tennis fans think the ATP will hire a visionary to be its new CEO, they've got another thing coming. Truth is, no sufficiently inspirational or willful exec would want the position.

  5. Djokovic re-establishes himself as a force

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    Satisfying endings, like beauty, are in the eyes of the beholder, even though tennis produces them on a week-to-week basis rather than a season-to-season one. Ours is the convenience store of sports; it's open all the time, even though the ATP and WT...

  6. Can we fix the fading YEC

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    Nothing speaks as eloquently to the issue of tennis' overlong season than the ongoing Tennis Masters Cup, the year-end championship of the ATP Tour. The concept of a YEC playoff was introduced in 1970 as the logical conclusion of a new "Grand Prix" s...

  7. Bad case of spring fever for WTA

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    Among other things, the weekend festivities that ushered in the calm before the Roland Garros storm served up a vivid snapshot of where the ATP and WTA are as institutions. In Hamburg, Germany, Rafael Nadal survived another gut-wrencher to snatch a t...

  8. Champions' springboard

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    In some ways, it's been the ATP version of the Wheel of Fortune. Indian Wells, the prestigious Masters Series event that ends the long and not entirely compelling six-week stretch that follows the Australian Open, has a rich history as a career-launc...

  9. Not exactly Kournikova

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    Let's relax our taboo on mentioning tennis and any form of gambling in the same sentence to note that the ATP men's results this weekend were a little bit like a Daily Double that ended up paying $50,000 on a $2 bet. What were the odds that Sergiy St...

  10. U.S. missing the boat

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    I just returned from a family vacation to the Central American nation of Costa Rica, a nation whose highest-ranking player on the ATP computer is Juan Antonio Marin (hi, Juan!), at No. 1135. At noon one day, I walked into the bar of our hotel at Pl...

  11. Dumbest move of the year

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    This year's award for Dumbest Idea by a Major Sports Organization goes to the ATP Tour for its plans to dismantle the tournament tier structure that gave us, among other things, the entity known as the Master Series. Starting in 2009, the ATP propos...

  12. ATP numbers game

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    The ATP Tour is nominally challenged. That's my fancy-pants way of saying that the ATP Tour has trouble remembering names, which is a real problem when the names it can't remember are those of its own events. In a press release full of otherwise go...

  13. Serbia's moment

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    Two couples were in the tennis news in a big way Sunday for being "just friends:" Radek Stepanek and Martina Hingis (Hingis, just friends with an ATP pro? Hahahahaha!), and Novak Djokovic and Ana Ivanovic. Stepanek leaked word through ATP officials t...

  14. ATP, Masters Series at odds

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    Monte Carlo is under way, kicking off the official lawsuit season! OK, it's supposed to be the onset of the clay-court season. The clay-court events that will transpire over the next few weeks constitute a de facto Roland Garros Series much like t...

  15. Round of confusion

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    Going with the old Creative Writing 101 maxim, "Never use two words when one will do," I refuse to call the new ATP Tour format a "Round Robin." I'm just going with "Confusion." So let's all get this straight from the start: This week in Adelaide, Au...

  16. Expect more of the same from Federer in 2007

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    Roger Federer would never use the word. He's too polite, and too much in control of men's tennis at the moment to stoop to such a gritty, guttural taunt. But the word I think of when I savor The Mighty Fed's performance in Shanghai, at the ATP Champi...
