NEW YORK | Hard to believe this is the same Rafael Nadal who was home during the U.S. Open a year ago, nursing a bad left knee.
NEW YORK | Right from the start, Roger Federer looked very little like, well, Roger Federer.
NEW YORK | Andy Murray chuckled as he explained the very best part about owning a pair of Grand Slam titles, one from the U.S. Open last year, the other from Wimbledon last month.
LONDON | Andy Murray needed one more point, one solitary point, to win Wimbledon — a title he yearned to earn for himself, of course, and also for his country.
LONDON | Ever since she was a kid, practicing until midnight with her father, Marion Bartoli went about playing tennis her own way.
LONDON | Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray are building their own Grand Slam rivalry, one that perhaps someday will merit mention alongside Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nadal, or Djokovic vs. Nadal.
LONDON | Whether in a match, a set, a game — or even within a single point — Sabine Lisicki simply cannot be counted out.
LONDON | Trailing 5-4 in her first Wimbledon quarterfinal, Sloane Stephens already had saved two set points and was about to serve at deuce when a fairly nondescript match became anything but.
LONDON | No. 1-seeded Novak Djokovic and No. 2 Andy Murray have yet to lose a set, let alone a match, so far at Wimbledon.
LONDON | Get ready for some unfamiliar names at Wimbledon.
LONDON | After a week filled by a headline-grabbing, off-court tiff with Maria Sharapova and a series of apologies stemming from a magazine profile, Serena Williams got back to doing what she does best.
LONDON | As her agent nodded along approvingly from a front-row seat, Serena Williams sounded contrite and composed. Well-rehearsed, too.
LONDON | Five things to watch at Wimbledon today, Day 1 of the grass-court Grand Slam tennis tournament:
LONDON | Nothing drives Serena Williams the way disappointment does.
PARIS | If Rafael Nadal truly was going to be challenged, if his bid for an unprecedented eighth French Open championship would be slowed even a bit, this might have been the moment.
PARIS | His dramatic and delightful French Open semifinal was 4 1/2 hours old — and 14 games into the fifth set — when Rafael Nadal raced from the net to the baseline to retrieve Novak Djokovic's seemingly unreachable lob.
PARIS | Done with a dominating performance in the French Open semifinals, Serena Williams climbed the stairs leading from the locker room to the players' lounge, looking to give her mother a hug.
PARIS | Less than 48 hours after learning of the death of his childhood coach, Novak Djokovic was on court at the French Open, determined to complete a career Grand Slam in honor of the woman he likened to a "second mother."
PARIS | There were moments, as recently as last year, when a body that would not stay healthy and on-court results prompted Bethanie Mattek-Sands to wonder whether it was simply time to call it a career after more than a decade as a professional tennis player.
PARIS | Novak Djokovic spent the better part of a rainy Tuesday at the French Open wondering when — and even whether — he would wind up playing his first-round match at the only Grand Slam tournament he's yet to win.
PARIS| Grimacing after some poor shots, leaning forward with hands on knees while catching her breath after others, Venus Williams left the French Open after the first round for the first time since 2001.
NEW YORK | Finally tested, even trailing, at the U.S. Open, Serena Williams turned things around just in time.
NEW YORK | Chants of "Let's go, Andy!" rang out between points during the last service game of his career, and again before the start of what would wind up as the last return game.
WIMBLEDON, England | For Serena Williams, the low point came in early 2011, when she spent hours laying around her home, overwhelmed by a depressing series of health scares that sent her to the hospital repeatedly and kept her away from tennis for 10 months.
WIMBLEDON, England | A Grand Slam title drought did indeed end in Sunday's historic and riveting Wimbledon final, only it was Roger Federer's lengthy-for-him gap between trophies that came to a close, rather than Britain's 76-year wait for a homegrown men's champion.
WIMBLEDON, England | After curling in a 102 mph ace to grab a two-set lead a mere 56 minutes into his Wimbledon quarterfinal Wednesday, Roger Federer casually pulled an extra tennis ball from his pocket and strolled to sit in his changeover chair for a sip to drink.
WIMBLEDON, England | Thanks to a bit of advice from her big sister and a bunch of aces from her big serve, Serena Williams is back in the Wimbledon semifinals.
WIMBLEDON, England | Whew.
WIMBLEDON, England | Laying face-down for a postmatch massage as midnight approached, Andy Murray was thrilled he managed to complete his third-round victory at Wimbledon on Saturday night.
WIMBLEDON, England | A day after Rafael Nadal's stunning exit at Wimbledon, the only other men who have won the tournament since 2003 — six-time champion Roger Federer and defending champion Novak Djokovic — found themselves trailing far-less-accomplished opponents, too.
WIMBLEDON, England | Rafael Nadal bumped into his unknown and unheralded opponent as they headed to a break between games. Perhaps it was incidental contact.
WIMBLEDON, England | On one point Tuesday at Wimbledon, Serena Williams dumped a forehand into the net and dropped to a knee, her jaw clenched as she let out a shriek.
WIMBLEDON, England | The question drew a chuckle from Novak Djokovic.
WIMBLEDON, England | Just in case there were any doubts out there, Serena Williams wants to make perfectly clear that she's going to be around tennis awhile longer. So is older sister Venus.
WIMBLEDON, England | Random as Grand Slam tournament draws are meant to be, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer keep bumping into each other in major semifinals, and it could happen again at Wimbledon.
PARIS | Here comes the French Open final everyone expected and, except for other players, wanted:
PARIS | Wind blew in her face, kicking up flecks of clay, and Maria Sharapova stood at the baseline, knowing she needed one more point to reach her first French Open final and return to No. 1 in the rankings.
NEW YORK | Already outplayed by Sam Stosur in the U.S. Open final, the last thing Serena Williams needed was to lose a game for yelling during a point.
NEW YORK | At one point, Andy Roddick looked up and saw a fan scaling a chain-link fence behind tiny Court 13, hoping to catch a peek of the 2003 U.S. Open champion's victory Thursday.
NEW YORK | Rafael Nadal's first match as defending U.S. Open champion was hardly a tour de force.
NEW YORK | Remember when Serena Williams was chastised for not taking tennis seriously enough?
NEW YORK | Men to watch at the U.S. Open, which begins Monday:
WIMBLEDON, England | One might reasonably have expected Petra Kvitova, not Maria Sharapova, to be betrayed by nerves in the Wimbledon final.
WIMBLEDON, England | From 1983 to 2003, the world's top two players never met each other in the Wimbledon men's final.
WIMBLEDON, England | So what if Maria Sharapova managed to win only two of the first 13 points of her Wimbledon semifinal Thursday, dropping the first three games?
WIMBLEDON, England | Heading into his Wimbledon quarterfinal against Rafael Nadal, Mardy Fish -- just like everyone else -- was well aware of the defending champion's much-discussed left foot pain.
WIMBLEDON, England | For two superb sets Wednesday, everything looked so routine for Roger Federer, precisely the way it did for so many years at Wimbledon -- and nearly everywhere else, too.
WIMBLEDON, England | Mardy Fish is making something of a habit of being the last U.S. man in the field at Grand Slam tournaments.
WIMBLEDON, England | Serena Williams has been known to say she isn't satisfied with this or that aspect of her game, even after easily winning a match, say, 6-3, 6-2.
PARIS | As China's Li Na tossed the ball while serving at match point in the French Open final, a cry from a fan in the stands pierced the silence at Court Philippe Chatrier.
