  1. Federer is just fine

    Peter Bodo,

    Now that the U.S. Open -- in my view, the best U.S. Open we've seen in quite a few years -- is over, let's take a look at the five big takeaways for the upcoming 2009 Grand Slam season: 1. Roger Federer is just fine, thank you very much! I was in th...

  2. Don't discount Jelena just yet

    Peter Bodo,

    You could be forgiven for wondering if Jelena Jankovic took Saturday's rainout of the U.S. Open women's final less as a chance to get an extra day's rest than as a stay of execution. After all, her opponent in Sunday's final -- Serena Williams -- has...

  3. Admit there's a problem, Federer

    Peter Bodo,

    On the eve of the U.S. Open, hopes are running high in New York for a rematch of the epic Wimbledon final between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, but recent events suggest that it probably won't happen. For one thing, only one player of the 10 sample...

  4. Freaky Slam

    Peter Bodo,

    Wimbledon is the traditional Grand Slam event, Roland Garros is the iron (wo)man major and the U.S. Open is the grueling jewel in the lineup. That leaves the upcoming Australian Open, which is the freaky Slam. The tournament took a quantum leap when...

  5. Welcome back, Lindsay

    Peter Bodo,

    While drifting around the National Tennis Center over the final weekend of the U.S. Open, I paused by the fountains and Jumbotron to watch part of a classic flashback match: the 2000 final between Lindsay Davenport and Venus Williams. I was struck ...

  6. A true gentleman

    Peter Bodo,

    Very soon after Tim Henman wrapped up his artfully played and sentimentally satisfying four-set U.S. Open upset of the blogging Russian, Dmitry Tursunov, on Wednesday, he left Louis Armstrong Stadium, went straight to the locker room, and hopped on a...

  7. What you won't see at U.S. Open

    Peter Bodo,

    We have a pretty good idea of the things we're likely to see at the U.S. Open, starting on Monday, which include: humongous serves from Andy Roddick, Ivo Karlovic, Tomas Berdych and John "wild card" Isner, ice cream cones so expensive you have to buy...

  8. Blake's book report

    Peter Bodo,

    The USTA is busy billing the summer fare bundled together under the banner of the U.S. Open Series as the "Greatest Road Trip in Sports", but there's a real chance that like so many art-house road movies, the journey leads nowhere for one or more of ...

  9. Factors for Flushing Meadow

    Peter Bodo,

    After Sunday's epic Wimbledon final, the picture for the U.S. Open Series, culminating with America's Grand Slam, has suddenly jumped into sharper focus. Here are some of the themes that, having been established at Wimbledon, will mature into full na...

  10. Clijsters calls it quits ... finally!

    Peter Bodo,

    It was a great weekend it was for the warrior athletes. Pete Sampras played an authentic, prize-money tournament for the first time since he won the U.S. Open of 2002 (thereby establishing a new Grand Slam singles title record of 14), and he looked a...

  11. Tennis first for Sharapova

    Peter Bodo,

    Maria Sharapova has the Anna Kournikova problem, and I'm not talking about the stigma of never having won a singles title on the WTA Tour, either. "Shrieky," you've noticed, has won Wimbledon and the U.S. Open and she's ranked No. 1 in the world. The...
