Marco Cecchinato is 25 years old. Until this week, he had never won a match at a major—first-round losses in all four tries. Until last month, his biggest splash on tour might have been a 2016 suspension for match-fixing, later overturned on appeal. At No. 72 in the world, he has become the lowest-ranked man to make…

Novak Djokovic Is Alive Again Novak Djokovic Is Alive Again

If the 2017 season marked the sudden, vague decline of Novak Djokovic, the early 2018 season was him bottoming out.

He hadn’t even lost two—let alone three—matches in a row since the…

Gael Monfils And Novak Djokovic Played Tennis In A New Circle Of Hell Gael Monfils And Novak Djokovic Played Tennis In A New Circle Of Hell

One interesting new plot twist in tennis—I wish I’d been reminded of this before last night—is that every match between Gael Monfils and Novak Djokovic must be conducted in Hell.

Hey, Look, It's Stan Wawrinka And Novak Djokovic  Hey, Look, It's Stan Wawrinka And Novak Djokovic 

Tennis missed its lost injured boys. I missed seeing a dude look like he a sipped through a six-pack, dozed off on the couch, toppled out of it, peed golden-brown, shuffled off to his match and immediately began lashing 100 mph backhand winners. There are a lot of professional tennis players, but there is only one…
