  • What the Deuce
  • Kvitova the acid test for Azarenka

  • What the Deuce
  • Murray must not lose sight of the bigger picture
  • Mar 13, 2012: Back-to-back defeats last year was a real case of spring fever. Dusting himself off and putting in a decent shift in Miami will show just how far Andy Murray has come

  • This could be the year of the Fed
  • Feb 21, 2012: Roger Federer oozed class as he made his return to Rotterdam for the first time in seven years a winning one with a demolition of Juan Martin Del Potro and 2012 could well turn out to be the year of the Fed

  • Feb 14, 2012: How Davis Cup captain Leon Smith turned the Great Britain ship around

  • What the Deuce
  • Raising the bar
  • Jan 31, 2012: It remains to be seen if Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic's rivalry can match that of Rafa-Roger, but one thing's for sure, if we get another contest like Sunday's final, we're in for a real treat

  • What the Deuce
  • Walking wounded
  • Jan 10, 2012: It may be the beginning of a new year, but they way some of big-name stars are walking wounded, it might as well be the end of the season. Could it be the case of last man (and woman) standing in Melbourne?

  • What the Deuce
  • Desert shindig undermines serious scheduling concerns
  • Jan 3, 2012: The wellbeing of the players should be paramount for the ATP, tournament organisers, tennis fans and of course the players themselves, but if they want to be taken seriously, they must put their fitness before the health of their bank accounts

  • A spectacle fit for a King
  • Dec 6, 2011: The Davis Cup may have come under criticism in recent years and could face the axe in its current format as pressure mounts to ease a congested calendar, but events in Seville will have done the event's cause no harm whatsoever

  • What the Deuce
  • Something's got to give
  • Nov 29, 2011: What's clear is that the ATP need its top players to be fit. Whether that is a major overhaul of the schedule or reducing the number of mandatory tournaments, something has to give

  • What the Deuce
  • Can the Fed-Express hit top speed in Basel?
  • Nov 1, 2011: It may lack the prestige of Wimbledon or the US Open, but this is a big week for Federer and his performance in Basel may give us an insight into just how much mileage there is left in the great man

  • What The Deuce
  • Joint tennis finals can kill two birds with one stone
  • Oct 25, 2011: The men want a shorter season; the WTA needs a publicity boost. While it may seem like an overly simple solution to a hugely complex issue, why not make the year-end championships mixed?

  • What the Deuce
  • Murray poised to follow in Djokovic's footsteps
  • Oct 18, 2011: For the first time in his career, Andy Murray is officially better than Roger Federer. His hat-trick of titles in the Far East suggest he is in the form of his life. But is Murray a better player than two years ago?

  • Retirement the right move for forgotten woman Safina
  • Oct 11, 2011: Gone is the youthful enthusiasm when Dinara Safina claimed she would be playing tennis forever. She has not missed the grind of the WTA Tour, and the sport has not missed her either
