    Peter Bodo

    At Qatar this week, top-seeded and top-ranked Novak Djokovic lost to ATP No. 27 Ivo Karlovic, the 35-year-old Croatian ace machine (is there any other kind of Croatian?). Also at Qatar, No. 2 seed Rafael Nadal was upset in his first-round match by No...

  3. Things could get worse for Rafa in Madrid

    Peter Bodo

    If Rafael Nadal wanted to put a little pressure on himself, he couldn't have picked a better time than last week, when he lost to a fellow Spaniard on a red clay court for the second time in as many weeks. A few weeks ago it was David Ferrer bounc...

  4. Whats wrong with Rafa?

    Peter Bodo

  5. From bad to worse for U.S. Davis Cup

    Peter Bodo

    Here's how bad it is for the U.S. team in the Davis Cup: The squad lost in the first round of World Group play this past weekend to Great Britain, a nation that had not won a single WG match (a "tie" in Davis Cup patois) in 30 years. Not bad enoug...

  6. Isner, Serena ready for US Open

    Peter Bodo

    There was poignancy about the results in the final major warm-up tournament for the US Open, the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati. Each singles final featured an American, and both of the U.S. players lost. ATP No. 22 John Isner lost the men's f...

  7. Good luck cracking Rafael Nadal's mojo

    Peter Bodo

    What was that, you say? Rafael Nadal lost a set? It's true, but despite a hiccup in his Friday quarterfinal matchup versus Grigor Dimitrov, recent events indicate you may just as well fill in his name as the winner of Monte Carlo, as well as the...

  9. The Old vs. The Hurt

    Peter Bodo

    These days, it seems like it's all about Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. No harm in that, right? Djokovic hasn't lost a match yet this year (14-0) and he carries and conducts himself with a certain swagger that reminds you, just in case it ...

  10. The Old vs. The Hurt

    Peter Bodo

    The last time Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal met in a match that wasn't a semifinal or final was in 2004, but if they meet at Indian Wells, it would be in the quarters in a match that is certainly looking like The Old vs. The Hurt, Peter Bodo writes.

  11. And the Player of the Year goes to ...

    Peter Bodo

    It seemed like a real buzzkill when Roger Federer lost the Basel final to Juan Martin del Potro a few weeks ago and then promptly pulled out of the Paris Masters 1000 event. In the span of 24 hours, dreams of an unlikely -- but not impossible -- batt...

  13. Tennis - Can John Isner give U.S. more Davis Cup magic?

    Peter Bodo

  14. Where does Rafael Nadal go from here?

    Peter Bodo

    Peter Bodo
