Tennis Players over 30 Years Old Most Likely to Win a Grand Slam

Jul 15 2014 10:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Day Five: The Championships - Wimbledon 2014
Roger Federer and Serena Williams have 17 Grand Slam titles each. Federer has earned more prize money than anyone in the history of tennis. Williams has earned more prize money than any woman in the history of sports. They have two other things in common. Both are 32, and each finished Wimbledon in tears. It's tough to win a Slam after 30. Each year the body grows more weary, and the age gap between opponents widens. Meanwhile, the competition creeps closer.  Federer ...

What Serena Williams Needs to Do to Get on Track for a Strong Finish in 2014

Jul 10 2014 10:19pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Day Five: The Championships - Wimbledon 2014
Serena Williams' tumultuous season can be turned around with a win at the U.S. Open. Getting in position to pull that off will require Williams to take a different approach from the one she took in 2013. Last year, Williams stormed through tournaments on her way to a record-breaking season. She went 78-4 and won 11 titles, including the French Open and U.S. Open. She racked up a record $12.4 million in prize money and became the oldest ...

Will Serena Williams Win Another Grand Slam Title in Her Career?

Jun 16 2014 10:40pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Margaret Court Arena Media Opportunity
Will Serena Williams win another Grand Slam? A few months ago, that question would have been considered absurd. Williams, winner of 17 Slams, completed a record-setting year in 2013. She went 78-4, won 11 titles, grabbed the No. 1 ranking and won two Grand Slams. Matching Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert with 18 Slams seemed inevitable. Talk surfaced about her reaching Steffi Graf's 22. Graf told the Associated Press tha ...

Day Seven: The Championships - Wimbledon 2014
After another amazing edition of the French Open on the clay of Roland Garros, the focus now shifts to the grass courts of Wimbledon and the 2014 championship draw. On the men’s side, Rafael Nadal is coming off yet another French Open victory, but all hope is not lost for the other competitors. Despite being a nine-time champion at Roland Garros, Nadal has only gone on to win Wimbledon twice. That glimmer of hope is all big names like Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and defending tournam ...

General View Of Pop Up Shop 'Sugarpova' By Maria Sharapova
For Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova, the 2014 French Open went swimmingly. Both secured their perch atop the clay throne on the men's and women's sides, with Nadal retaining his title as the "King of Clay." As for every other player, the tournament ended in disappointment with a loss in Roland Garros. Even for Novak Djokovic and Simona Halep, both of whom made it to the final, leaving Paris withou ...
