  1. Design the ranking system, not the outcomes

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    It's unfortunate when a player's ascension to No. 1 is accompanied primarily by discussion of what she hasn't achieved. That's been a common theme for the women this decade, and it's ironic that it's resurfaced during the same time that such a titan...

  2. Hype not required

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    So we all watched the match, and it was great. Really Great, the kind that you put a capital G on and carefully put away in the memory bank. Then came the hard part -- having to decide what to make of it all. The players had barely left the court...

  3. French full of fragile favorites

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    Trying to predict which players are going do well at the French Open? There are all the usual indicators -- who's been winning the lead-up events, who likes playing on clay, who's got a good draw, etc. But there's one x-factor which always adds a lay...

  4. Massacre In The Making

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    Once upon a time in a land not so far away, there was a women's team competition called the Wightman Cup -- an annual seven-match contest between the United States and Great Britain, established in 1923. It seemed like a good idea at the time. The tw...

  5. Time to put up or shut up in Miami

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    With the second of back-to-back Masters Series events just under way, it's time for some of the game's elite to step out of the murky waters they've been entrenched in for some time and post results we've become accustomed to. For others, the Sony ...

  6. Under the radar

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    During tennis' quiet February, we tend to focus our attention on the small tournaments dotted around the United States and on the Euro-Asian lineup featuring events like star-crossed Rotterdam and star-studded Dubai. But there's a third swing also ...

  7. Stay away, Pete

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    The comeback dream. Every time Pete Sampras plays it gets a little bigger. After all, he beat Roger Federer in an exhibition in November and some of his shots look as good as ever. This week, he also defeated Tommy Haas with relative ease in an exhib...

  8. More than just Aussie crowns

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    Maria Sharapova and Novak Djokovic spent the last night of the U.S. Open hitting the town and singing karaoke together. Last week at the Australian Open, they were busy winning singles titles in their respective events at Melbourne Park -- and occasi...

  9. Two wrongs made right

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    The ATP has been given plenty of black eyes this year, over everything from gambling revelations to round-robin conflicts to lawsuits over the calendar. Most recently, it's been taking hits over its tiresome once-a-decade habit of renaming all its to...

  10. Unlimited Hawk-Eye a must

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    The U.S. hosts Russia in the Davis Cup final at Portland, Ore. next week, but as you watch, remember it might never have happened without some intense diplomatic negotiations. No, they weren't about having official food testers, or getting Russian ca...

  11. Playing the percentages

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    When the season-ending WTA Championships begin next week, the chief question will be: Can anyone beat Justine Henin? The little Belgian that could has put a crimp in the seasons of nearly all the players she'll be facing in Madrid. Here's how they mi...

  12. Expect the unexpected

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    For a player who can win everywhere, David Nalbandian has spent an awful lot of time not winning anywhere. The stealthy, shark-like Argentine has reached at least the semifinals of every single Grand Slam during his career -- including an unexpected...

  13. Ivo's evolving game

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    Ivo Karlovic is the tallest player on tour at 6-foot-10, so it's no surprise that he's head and shoulders above everyone else when it comes to serving. But by how much? Quite a bit, as it turns out. Last week, he became the fourth player to hit more...

  14. Love triangle?

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    To the sugar at the top of the men's game, we can now add some spice. So amicable is the relationship between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, their grip on the sport for the last three years has been practically a handshake. Nadal rates Federer as t...

  15. The "other" woman

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    Asked to name the women's semifinalists going into the U.S. Open, most would have named four out of these six names -- Justine Henin, Maria Sharapova, Jelena Jankovic, Ana Ivanovic, Serena Williams and Venus Williams. But thanks to the way the draw p...

  16. Wide (U.S.) open

    Kamakshi Tandon,

    Here we are, three-quarters of the way through the decade, and it's still not clear who will end up owning it in women's tennis. A couple of years in, few would have bet against it being Venus Williams. Going back-to-back at Wimbledon and the U.S. O...
