    It was on this day in 2009 that the finals for the 123rd Wimbledon Championship took place in London, England.  Roger Federer defeated Andy Roddick  5-7, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (5), 3-6, 16-14 to capture his sixth Wimbledon title.

    Roger Federer Screams at French Open Fans to “Shut Up” (Video)

    It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Roger Federer is getting a little curmudgeonly these days. While he’s been mostly polite throughout his storied career, he’s never been an especially warm and gregarious guy (Novak Djokovic he is not).  Now Roger is 30 years old, which is about 80 in the world of professional tennis. […]

    Whenever Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer meet up on the tennis court, highlight reel moments are bound to be created.  However, more often than not, those highlights are being produced by their tennis racquets.  But while their racquets did produce some remarkable highlights during their meeting in the semi-finals of the Australian Open earlier this […]

    Ball Boy’s Head Nearly Decapitated At Australian Open (Video)

    During a first round match between Roger Federer and Alexander Kudryavtsev at the Australian Open, you’d figure most people would credit Federer with having the “deadlier shot” in this battle. Not quite. While Federer was hitting balls with his usual precision, en route to the 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 victory, Kudryavtsev was busy proving that he […]

    Watch Gillette Shave Roger Federer’s Grassy Beard (Video)

    When Gillette unveiled a giant innovative billboard of Derek Jeter going through a three-day shaving cycle on the side of a building in New York’s SoHo neighborhood, they called it “The World’s Biggest Shave.” I guess at the time they didn’t think they would be shaving Roger Federer’s portrait on a giant grass field. For […]

    9 Instances When It Was (Sort Of) Okay for Athletes to Cry

    That title is a little misleading. I”m not sure it’s ever truly “okay” for athletes to cry. Sure, there is the drama of competition, and of course emotions run high, but it’s still somewhat uncomfortable to see these modern-day gladiators break down in tears. I understand it, but I really don’t like it. Fortunately it […]

    10 Athletes Who Might Not Be Total Douchebags

    How hard is it to find likable athletes? Harder than you would think. I’m sure there are many out there, but the best of the best usually end up making headlines off the field for all the wrong reason.

    Check Out Victor Hanescu’s Trick Shot At The US Open

    Just when it seemed as though no one would outdo Roger Federer’s “tweener” shot at the 2010 US Open, along comes Victor Hanescu with this brilliant trick shot that had Michael Llodra fooled from the start. I wonder why more tennis pros do not utilize the “fake overhand smash tap-over shot” more often.  I guess […]

    9 Sports Commercial Stunts So Cool No One Cares If They’re Fake

    While athletes have the ability to amaze us on the field, the advent of viral videos allows many of those same athletes to blow us away just by screwing around.
