  8. Same old bosses, Fed, Sharapova still rule

    Peter Bodo

    Judging from the first week of play in the new year, 2015 is less likely to be a year of sweeping change than one of business as usual. Sure, top-ranked and top-seeded Novak Djokovic was upset at Qatar. But isn't that what Ivo Karlovic does for a liv...

    Peter Bodo

    There is more than one kind of iron man in sports. The names of the most familiar kind roll off the tongue with ease: Cal Ripken Jr., Brett Favre, A.C. Green. Then there is Roger Federer, who is often said to be made of silk, not iron. Yet, starting ...

  13. IPTL a blueprint for future events?

    Peter Bodo

    Peter Bodo

    This year, super coach Stefan Edberg helped set a course that enabled his protege Roger Federer to reclaim the world No. 2 ranking. But Federer failed in his primary annual mission to win at least one Grand Slam event. Boris Becker, Edberg's caree...

  15. Tennis' version of Santas and superstars

    Peter Bodo

    It has been a terrific year for the tennis coaching industry. It isn't just that so many coaches found gainful employment; it's also because the dignity of the profession -- never a guaranteed thing -- was greatly enhanced by the dramatic increase in...
