PREVIEW Following Stan Wawrinka's unlikely victory at the Australian Open, normalcy resumed at the French Open with three of tennis' "Big Four" (Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray) making the semifinals in Paris. Should we look for more of the same in London? There is cause for concern however. Nadal hasn't won a match at Wimbledon since 2012. Djokovic looked worn out in Paris, and one wonders how he will bounce back after putting so much into the French. Andy Murray is the defending champion, but he is only now getting back to top form (due to back surgery last fall) and has a new coach (Amelie Mauresmo) to boot....

PREVIEW For the women, Wimbledon may be more open now compared to the last few years. Usually, the easy bet would be to go with Serena Williams, she of the Wimbledon and 17 Grand Slam titles. But given her early losses in the previous two Slams, the world number one is no longer a sure bet. With Maria Sharapova back in form following her French Open victory, the return of Victoria Azarenka from injury, and the rise of a promising youth brigade (led by Simona Halep), a Serena triumph is no longer a given. Will the trend continue over the next two weeks, or can Serena restore order? Let's take a look at the women's draw and predict...

  "When the run is over, it's over" - Isiah Thomas on ESPN's 30 for 30 documentary on the Bad Boy Detroit Pistons All good things must come to an end. It happened to the Miami Heat during the NBA Finals. The same has happened to Spain during the 2014 World Cup. When you have been a champion and have been on top for so long (not only were Spain the defending World Cup champions from four years ago, but they had also won consecutive European Championships in 2008 and 2012) then it is also a matter of time before age, mileage, fatigue (both physical and mental), and complacency kicks in. Many of Spain's core players...

Maria Sharapova claimed her second French Open title in three years thanks to a dramatic 6-4, 6-7(5), 6-4 victory over fourth seed Simona Halep of Romania. It is also the fifth Grand Slam title of her career. The women's final, which lasted a shade over three hours, was a grueling affair with several changes of momentum. The fact that both women struggled to hold their service games throughout the match (there were more breaks of serves than holds) also added to the drama. Simona Halep came into her first ever Grand Slam final without having dropped a set, but was immediately put on the backfoot thanks to Sharapova's...
