Anderson didn't win a Wimbledon title, but he won over plenty of fans 17.7.2018 Articles by Steve Tignor
Tennis history is written at the majors, where overloads of memorable moments are often provided. Wimbledon in 2018 was no different: We saw Novak Djokovic resurrect himself in one determined, two-week swoop; Angelique Kerber spot a golden opportunity and take it with the most mature and purposeful performance of her career; and a 36-year-old Serena Williams wow everyone by reaching the final 10 months after having a baby. We also saw three of the best matches of the year: Djokovic’s furious five-set victory over Rafael Nadal; Nadal’s dying-light win over Juan Martin del Potro two days earlier; and the blindingly brilliant quarterfinal between Kerber and Daria Kasatkina. But the moment I’ll remember most, or at least first, from this year’s fortnight didn’t happen during any match. It happened right after the longest of them, Kevin Anderson’s six-hour, 36-minute semifinal win over John Isner. After every match on Centre Court and No. 1 Court at Wimbledon, the winning player is whisked into a small room ...

Top 10 Wimbledon Memories, No. 8: Federer d. Roddick, 2009 final 16.7.2018 Articles by Steve Tignor
“Tennis is cruel,” Federer said when it was finally over. He knew. He had seen it from both sides. The previous year, Federer had lost the longest Wimbledon final, in terms of time played, to Rafael Nadal. Now, 12 months later, he had won the longest Wimbledon final, in terms of games played, over Roddick. This time it was Roddick’s turn to rue missed opportunities; he certainly had his share over the course of this four-hour, 88-game epic. The American had lost finals on the same court, to the same man, in 2004 and 2005, but on this July 4th he was closer than ever, and he had played better than ever. Roddick was so close, in fact, that all he had to do was drop one more ball over the net and he would have had a two-set lead. After winning the first set, Roddick led the second-set tiebreaker 6-2, and soon after that had an all-but-unmissable putaway backhand volley. Except that he missed it. Then he lost the second set.
