Wimbledon 2018 Update:

  • Lanky Kevin Anderson comes up short in a grand slam final once again, sputtering badly at the start with too many shanks and giving his experienced and opportunistic opponent a pretty comfortable cushion. No way you can get away with that against Novak, who sweeps in 3 straight and now is in the teens with majors.

Wimbledon 2018 Update:

  • Serena had the baby, but it was Kerber who delivered. In a abrupt turn of events, Serena looked unsure of herself, out of condition and off kilter, while the German was poised, and chasing down everything like a demon. Now Angelique has built hall of fame credentials of her own, and only needs the French to claim a career grand slam.

Wimbledon 2018 Update:

  • Novak continues to defy the doubters, beating Nadal in a counter-punch classic. Perhaps more significant, were his 20+ aces, which he’ll need in his arsenal against the slamming South African in the final. Regardless of the result tomorrow, putting down the wildly competitive Nadal will be something to remember forever.

Wimbledon 2018 Update (and click above to hear new ChabDog Sports Talk Show opening from Well-read Productions):

  • Big win goes to the 6 ft 8 “little guy”, in a titanic clash on Centre Court. Isner brought everything he had to this one, but Anderson dug deeper, and knocked on the door until he finally kicked it open. His reward — another golden opportunity for SA’s Golden Boy to win that elusive major. Amazing heart on display today, by both players. This was a match for the ages, and that’s no tall tale!

Wimbledon 2018 Update:

  • A strong, silent type is again the semis, and to the surprise of most, it’s Kevin Anderson, not Federer, who falls apart uncharacteristically when he had the match seemingly in hand
  • Isner finally breaks through to the final four in a major way, outlasting Raonic in a withering Wednesday slugfest
  • Nadal’s pressure is too much for an exhausted del Potro, who buckles and breaks in five
  • Djokovic seems to have found his niche, successfully playing off friction with the crowd and the chair to overpower Nish.

Wimbledon 2018 Update:

  • Williams wills her way to victory over Giorgi girl, and gets Goerges in the next round, who drop kicks Kiki
  • Kerber still looks solid as rock and wins her cat fight with Kasatkina
  • Jelena ousts Cibulkova, and hopes/prays she’ll be able to treat the British crowd to an Ostapenko weekend

Wimbledon 2018 Update:

  • Serena does some serious road work in putting the paver to Rodina, 2 and 2
  • 7th seed Pliskova gets chewed up and spit out by an unimpressed, bawdy Bertens
  • Georges makes wreckage out of Croatia’s Vekic
  • Kerber stays alive by bouncing Belinda Bencic
  • Domineering little Dominika goes into a mini tizzy over the chair’s overrule, but it was much ado about nothing as she easily has her way with Su-wei
  • And on the Eastern Front, Ostapenko survives a harrowing first set tie breaker and purges Sanovich in the second with a bagel

Wimbledon 2018 Update:

  • Nish bests Ernests by focusing on tennis, and not looking toward his opponent’s player’s box; yes, indeedy, bad to let your vision wander toward Tamara, the ultimate off-court distraction
  • Roger continues his inexorable procession toward the finals by getting a little bit of exercise against outmanned Mannarino
  • Three jeers for Jiri, who wins his quota of about 3 meaningless games a set against the wild boar from Manacor
  • Novak sends Karen Khach backpacking to Siberia
  • Isner sends his serves whizzing by Tsitsipas, at eye popping speeds; thank god the announcer for this one didn’t have the Daffy Duck lisp
  • Milos lost his touch in the 3rd set breaker, but was really feeling it the fourth, while McDonald bought the farm
  • KA from SA emerges in one piece after a wicked tight battle with Monfils

Wimbledon 2018:

  • Novak plays the role of bad boy, bringing down hometown Kyle and earning the ire of a partisan crowd. Hey Djoker — didn’t anyone ever tell you that popularity isn’t something that doled out like Xmas candy … the more love you ask for, the less you get
  • Nadal isn’t about to be derailed by De Minaur
  • Tiafoe is about to yack after blowing a 2-0 lead in sets to Khachanov
  • The usual antics and lunatic fare for Paire in a colorful loss to delpo delpo delpo– Raonic man has his day of fun in the sun against Austria’s Novak
  • Kei has the needed tool to take Nishikori to school in straights
  • Another bad seed is weeded out when Simona gets silenced
  • When it comes to winners, Kerber drops more than a few big ones in demolishing Osaka
  • Barty can kiss her chances goodbye against Kasatkina
  • Van Uytvanck gets an ulcer when Anett does the fully Konty
  • Suarez-Navarro gets bounced by Bencic

Wimbledon 2018:

  • Jan-Lennard was definitely missing the right Struff to take out Roger
  • Disco Adrian Mannarino dances by Danhiil
  • Monfils recovers from a loose opening set to quash Querrey
  • Anderson’s serve was positively lethal as he flattened Philipp
  • Venus gets kicked out of the All-England club by Kiki
  • No more Madison Keys, please
  • Serena breaks a sweat but avoids the upset malady against Mladenovic
  • Isner isn’t the only American in the 4th round, joining Mr. McDonald

Wimbledon 2018: Second Round highlights and observations

Wimbledon 2018:

  • Cilic shows he’s not water repellent in rain delayed loss to Pella.
  • Djokovic was ahead of Zeballos, but in thigh high pain, until he trained himself to ignore the pain.
  • A plodding Wawrinka uncorks another major stinker and is rudely bounced out of the tournament.
  • Nadal survives just a little push back from Kukushkin.
  • Gilles the Gadfly Simon buries Berrettini.
  • Muller can only mull over what might have been after the narrowest of narrow 3 set losses to one of the widest last names in tennis, Mr. Kohlschreiber.
  • Jack seems only halfway repentant after being fined for failing to put a sock in it. The fact is, he really doesn’t have the game to succeed on grass, but in this situation, that isn’t enough to earn him a pass.
  • Favorites Kerber and Mugsy struggle markedly, which could be a harbinger of good things to come for hardy, 25th seeded Serena.

Wimbledon 2018:

  • Danish ingrate driven insane by bugs and by smacks from Makarova
  • Serena makes a loser out of Viktoriya
  • Not much for Mladenovic to be mad about as she cruises
  • After an interesting first set, it’s a totally dull victory for Venus over Dulgheru
  • Big Vicky given a serious butt kicking by Karolina
  • Roger certainly didn’t slack off against Lukas Lacko.
  • Struff strutts his stuff, and then some against Karlovic’s killer serve
  • After spotting Lorenzi the first set, Gael scores a victory in four

Wimbledon 2018:

  • Are the stars aligned right at Wimby this year for the very superstitious Rafa? Roger looks rested and on top of his game, so we can’t assume anything, other than Nadal’s water bottles will be correctly lined up and his shorts won’t fit.
  • Sharapova’s tournament is decidedly over as she suffers through an unhealthy diet of unforced errors against qualifier Diatchenko… time to call weight watchers, Maria….you’ve lost a step or two…
  • And in other action … Nick the dick takes care of Denis the Uzbekistanian menace.

2018 French Open Update (Men’s Singles, Finals):

  • Aside from a mildly competitive 1st set, it was another rather routine coronation for Nadal as the King of Red Clay for the 11th time; as for his opponents, they know he’s more appropriately named the King of Pain. Why serve to him or rally with him on this surface … it’s completely, and literally, pointless. And with this win (and future) wins at Roland Garros, the gap with Roger in terms of major titles just keeps narrowing. When he’s good and done, the superstitious Spaniard may well be the all time No. 1.
