    That is quite possibly the only stat that seems to go against Fed (and perhaps the OSG). Still the most complete resume I've seen.

    I rather see Federer win Monte Carlo and Rome than the singles medal in all honesty. Olympics tennis is overrated and didn't mean much before Nadal won the gold medal in 2008.

    Congrats to both Andy and Kim - long time coming! Finally a good piece of news to brighten up the week (amongst all the other bits of bad news).

    3 down, one to go (Rafa, we're looking at you)...

    Well, they may not have met at the WTF Final, but Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic clashed in the inaugural IPTL exhibition event (representing Micromax Indian Aces and UAE Royals respectively).
    Some very entertaining points in here, especially near the business end of the set. I've managed to catch a few of the matches and it's certainly a very interesting format for an exho. Definitely kept the crowd entertained!

    Has anyone tried wearing a weighted vest while playing tennis? How'd it go?
    I'm considering it for training purposes.

    Apparently the BBC are looking to share coverage of Wimbledon with BT Sport in order to cut costs. That will be a major disappointment if that does indeed happen.

    If BBC don't want to it and it's pretty clear BBC isn't keen on much sport these days then I'd like to see ITV get it. They do a good job with the French Open and they've got some money to spend having lost the Champions League and Europa League rights.

    The BBC doesn't have much sport because it can't afford it. The amount pumped in by Sky and now BT just isn't matchable.

    As long as it stays completely free-to-air I don't care what channel it's on. I'm under no illusions though, since only finals weekend is protected by the government I expect the rest of the tournament will eventually go to pay TV. To not have Wimbledon in all its glory on free-to-air TV would be a travesty, so as I said, ITV have probably got a bit of money and are building up a nice sports portfolio and Discovery are supposedly keen on obtaining sports rights that could be shown on Quest.

    While I think their French Open coverage is quite decent I really do hate the ads
