A lot to enjoy here: 1) the shot by Wimbledon’s Jake Reeves itself, coming off an expertly controlled bounding ball and a wallop of a kick that sends the it way up into the air before it dips and swerves into the goal; 2) Reeves’s cocky little strut that he starts right after the ball comes off his foot and doesn’t…
Never mind the random act of hat, or the shirt that may have been borrowed from James May. Formula One driver and SUPPPOSED English gentleman Lewis Hamilton ran afoul of the Royal Box dress code at Wimbledon, causing him to miss the final. The violation? No jacket, tie and shoes that were to the code’s standards.

No. 1 seed Serena Williams squeaked by unranked Heather Watson 6-2. 4-6, 7-5 in the third round of Wimbledon on Friday. Williams survived after falling behind 3-0 in the third and decisive set, rallying to win and set up a battle with her sister Venus in the next round.

Petra Kvitova won her second Wimbledon and it didn't even take an hour. Kvitova demolished Eugenie Bouchard 6-3, 6-0 today in Bouchard's—and Canada's—first appearance in a Wimbledon final. The point you see above is not match point, but representative of the Czech's dominance. Even when Bouchard seemingly had her on…
It was an especially star-studded Royal Box at Wimbledon on Saturday, including recently retired cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, very likely the greatest batsman of all time. For some reason, Maria Sharapova was asked about him:
Wimbledon defending champion and Britain's great hope Andy Murray was defeated by Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets Wednesday. A nation sneers.

During Wimbledon Monday, Novak Djokovic thought he'd won a spirited match against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in straight sets.
