Wimbledon Women’s Singles Championship

Nightshift Sports:

There’ll be replays. There’ll be analysis. There’ll be what ifs and what could-have-beens. But the match has been finalized, Venus Williams run at the title is over and Garbine Muguruza, who won the French Open last year, is the Women’s Singles Champion at Wimbledon. If you missed the match, you’ll be able to see a replay (most likely on the Tennis Channel) but even if you did see it, this piece, from the Guardian, is wonderful--a very modern way of reporting a big sporting event, blow-by-blow, on-the-run, as it happens.

The Guardian does this type of sports coverage very well. You should have them on your list of favorites.

The women’s Singles Championship will be played today, between Venus Williams and Garbine Muguruza.

Each one of these championships is hard fought and well earned. Congratulations to everyone who made it to Wimbledon in 2017.

The Baryshnikov of the Baseline

Nightshift Sports: 

Roger Federer is working his way toward his 8th Wimbledon Singles title. His longevity and continued excellence in one of the most demanding sports in the world is amazing, but perhaps even more breathtaking is the grace with which he plays–especially at Wimbledon. Federer moves easily, efficiently, and athletically all over the court, but makes it all appear effortless. He plays well within himself (granted….it’s a pretty deep well of talent) and trains so intelligently and so specifically for his sport that he does not incur the type of physical ailments and injuries that befall other players of his generation. Below, a photographic appreciation of one of the best of all-time. Roger Federer, on the stage he has made his own, Wimbledon.
