Nick Kyrgios Played Nice And Won Nick Kyrgios Played Nice And Won

The defining experience of watching Nick Kyrgios play tennis is waiting for his Moment—the bad line call, or double-fault, or unseen internal implosion that irrevocably derails a fine match. In that sense, and in that sense only, his first tournament of the year would have left you twiddling your thumbs. Or clapping…

Grigor Dimitrov Hurdles Net To Help Out His Injured Opponent  Grigor Dimitrov Hurdles Net To Help Out His Injured Opponent 

When Kyle Edmund went down with an ankle injury at 4-4 in the deciding set of today’s quarterfinal match against Grigor Dimitrov in Brisbane, Dimitrov sprinted across the court, hurdled the net to check on him, and helped him to his chair on the sideline. Super Grigor to the rescue!

Grigor Dimitrov Is Doing His Best Roger Federer Impression

This is the week of the World Tour Finals, the year-end event wherein the best eight players on the men’s tennis tour all beat each other up and figure out who is the best one. This year the crew includes both Roger Federer and the highly regarded Roger Federer cover band that performs under the name Grigor Dimitrov.…

Roger Federer's Graveyard Roger Federer's Graveyard

Roger Federer is a really great guy. I know this because I got to meet him a few days ago when he invited me to his house for a dinner party.

The Tennis Will Be Good As Hell This Weekend, If You're Awake For It The Tennis Will Be Good As Hell This Weekend, If You're Awake For It

Frankly this chunk of the tennis calendar, known as the “Asian swing” because it passes through China and Japan, is the easiest to tune out, especially for a viewer in a U.S. time zone. The year’s last major just wrapped up, the year-end finals are still months away, and the time difference makes it forbiddingly hard…

Why Don't You Ding-Dongs Come To The Net? Why Don't You Ding-Dongs Come To The Net?

Roger Federer is a generous man. He’s spent the last two decades of his life pouring every bit of his heart, mind, and soul into giving us the best tennis experience possible. All he’s ever asked of us in return is that we come to the net more.

The U.S. Open Men's Draw Is A Joke The U.S. Open Men's Draw Is A Joke

If you’re a man who can stand upright without anything hurting, you’ve got as good a shot as anyone to win the 2017 U.S. Open. Gone are the elites usually clotting the late rounds of majors. Of the top 11 players in men’s tennis, five of them are too hurt to play: No. 11 Milos Raonic, No. 10 Kei Nishikori, No. 5 Novak…

Glory Be To The Underachievers Glory Be To The Underachievers

Grigor Dimitrov and Nick Kyrgios are two of the most watchable players on tour, with sure feel and shot-making for days. They may also be the two players with the most inborn talent but the least hardware to show for it. They are almost certainly the two players with the strangest “posts on this blog:title wins”…

Grigor Dimitrov Thoroughly Ruins His Racket

Grigor Dimitrov lost to Juan Martin del Potro, 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 at the Italian Open today. He hit some nice shots in a disappointing first-round exit, but saved his finest technique for this two-part racket devastation: First the spike, then the bare hands.

Grigor Dimitrov And Dominic Thiem Played The Best Tennis Of The Week And It Was Infuriating Grigor Dimitrov And Dominic Thiem Played The Best Tennis Of The Week And It Was Infuriating

For the better part of this week, it looked like Grigor Dimitrov was ready to shake himself out of his stupor—he’d lost his opening match at the last three tournaments, c’mon man—and make these frenzied blogs look a little less stupid. He started this Madrid Open looking like a whole player again, beating two tough…

Grigor Dimitrov Just Can't Seem To Break Through Grigor Dimitrov Just Can't Seem To Break Through

Grigor Dimitrov, the talented but streaky member of a generation of men’s tennis players that’s been largely overshadowed by the longevity of the Federer-Nadal-Djokovic cohort, looked poised to break out in 2017 when he started the year by winning 17 of 18 matches, knocking off three top-10 seeds along the way.…

The Indian Wells Men's Draw Is One Big Clusterfuck The Indian Wells Men's Draw Is One Big Clusterfuck

Today, out in the Coachella Valley, the Indian Wells Masters will begin. It’s the highest-profile tennis tournament in the world after the four Grand Slams, dropping a fat bounty of 1000 ranking points on its winners. Everyone in the tennis universe should be excited, except for Serena Williams and all her fans, after…

Grigor Dimitrov Just Blessed Us With The Best Tennis Point Of The Week

Watching a lot of Grigor Dimitrov lately, I’ve noticed a pattern: There’s a concrete moment, usually early in the second set, when he’s adequately warmed up from the first set and he decides to flip on God Mode. From there on out, you’re watching a qualitatively different player. Above is that moment in action,…

I Don't Think Grigor Dimitrov Will Lose Anytime Soon I Don't Think Grigor Dimitrov Will Lose Anytime Soon

This afternoon I burped and realized Grigor Dimitrov is playing tennis as well as anyone alive. Lesser players come at him and might startle him for a little—like Mischa Zverev did in the first round here at Rotterdam—but after the opening set, he remembers that he can swarm the whole entire court, can spike winners…

Grigor Dimitrov Is A Guy To Know Grigor Dimitrov Is A Guy To Know

Halfway through February, Grigor Dimitrov—not long ago ranked No. 40, written off as a burnt-out prodigy who’d never rise to meet the hype—has already racked up two ATP titles and a Grand Slam semifinal. This past weekend the 25-year-old beat David Goffin to win the Sofia Open in his homeland of Bulgaria, improving to…

Now It's Just Rafael Nadal And A Bunch Of Gorgeous One-Handers Now It's Just Rafael Nadal And A Bunch Of Gorgeous One-Handers

Rafael Nadal dug around and exploited two glitches in the Milos Raonic serving machine—two successfully converted break points, that is—to win his Australian Open quarterfinal 6-4, 7-6 (7), 6-4. And now he’s surveying a field full of the prettiest one-handed backhands in all the land. Roger Federer’s got the regal…

"Baby Federer" Is Growing Up, Collecting Scalps "Baby Federer" Is Growing Up, Collecting Scalps

It can’t be totally pleasant to attract premature comparisons to the greatest of all time. Too early in his career, Grigor Dimitrov was saddled with the nickname “Baby Fed,” a comparison that spoke more to aesthetics than to his record of success: He has the same lethal, fluid groundstrokes as the Swiss master, that…

Dimitrov Meltdown Hands Opponent First ATP Tour Win

Diego Schwartzman took his first career ATP Tour title today in claiming the Istanbul Open after his opponent Grigor Dimitrov came to pieces over malfunctioning equipment—eventually destroying it, and handing championship point over as a penalty.

Little Kid Works Roger Federer With Perfect Lob Shot

During an exhibition match against Grigor Dimitrov, Roger Federer accepted a challenge from a kid in the stands. Unfortunately for Fed, the little dude came to kick some ass.
