Rumor has it that there have been a couple of Rafael Nadal sightings so far this week. The lone mega-superstar remaining in the men’s portion of the Western and Southern Open tournament has supposedly been spotted on one of the practice courts. Because he received a bye directly into the second round, Rafa has yet to play an official match even though it’s already Day 4 of the tournament. I’ve yet to catch a glimpse of him either on the court or in the media center. Like Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster, I’m beginning to wonder if he’s even here. It’s time to go in search of Rafael Nadal. Continue reading In Search of Rafael Nadal
CINCINNATI, OHIO – G3 is proud to announce the Citi® Hoops Classic featuring the University of Kentucky men’s basketball team.

Every time an announcement comes out that a top-seeded player has withdrawn due to injury, a collective groan circulates throughout the tournament grounds. This year especially, there’s been a lot of groaning at The Western and Southern Open. Even before the start of the ATP Cincinnati tour stop, Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka had already shut themselves down for the remainder of the tennis season. Then, defending champion Marin Cilic and two-time winner Andy Murray pulled out a couple of days right before the tournament draw was announced. Kei Nishikori said sayonara after arriving on site as did Gael Monfils and Milos Raonic. Roger Federer’s unexpected announcement that he tweaked his back in Montreal and needed to rest this week capped off the volley of bad news. Continue reading Tennis is Served

Tennis in the United States is currently on life support. The lack of American star power at the top of the men’s rankings has relegated the once popular sport to the entertainment cellar. The Yankee goodwill garnered by past champions such as John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, Andre Agassi, and Pete Sampras has grudgingly given way to the European dominance of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray. Unless a Sam Querry, Jack Sock, or John Isner breaks out and wins an upcoming Major tournament, the resurrection of American tennis will unfortunately remain as hopeless as my backhand.
