short balls: remembering tim, reminiscing about romance, reviewing hewitt’s strategy


From feuds to flames: Last week RL looked at the biggest publicized spats in tennis, and this week the Times looks at its most famous couplings. While Hingis and Evert each have three listings (the Swiss Miss with Sergio Garcia, Radek Stepanek, and footballer Sol Campbell; Evert with Greg Norman, a betrayed John Lloyd, and Jimmy Connors), Anna Kournikova takes the cake with the only listing for a love triangle (see #2).

Remembering Tim: The Guardian‘s Richard Williams is already writing the eulogy for Tim Henman‘s career. Recent reports suggest the end is nigh. Wait — there ya go. We’ll miss you, Tim!

Bonus round: Read up on Tim’s career highlights.

Hewitt at his heels: How to beat World No. 1 Federer, by written by Lleyton Hewitt. And you know what? It worked.

Yay: Congrats to Donald Young for winning his first ATP-level match in 12 tries. He was beaten in the next round by Nikolay Davydenko, who’s been in first-round purgatory himself for these last few months. (via ZooTennis)
