November 2015 issue on sale now
Originally published on 22/10/15
The new issue has a distinctly British flavour as we look ahead to an historic Davis Cup final between Great Britain and Belgium.
Award-winning tennis writer Paul Newman charts the British team’s road to the final, which started five years ago when Leon Smith took the wheel as captain with the team on the brink of relegation to the bottom tier of the competition.
We talk tennis, gelato and life with new British No.1 Johanna Konta, who has a fantastic sense of perspective after enjoying a sensational run of form since Wimbledon.
At 34, Roger Federer is showing no signs of slowing down, and we look at how he has managed to stay ahead of the game. While his aggressive SABR (sneak attack by Roger) return tactic stole the headlines this summer, his serve has played a big part in his success. We take a closer look at his flawless service motion in our frame-by-frame analysis.
We’ve got exclusive interviews with Kevin Anderson, Leonardo Mayer and the Pliskova twins – Karolina and Kristyna – who tell us about on life on tour and playing doubles with your sister.
Serena Williams’ coach Patrick Mouratoglou underlines the importance of the serve in his exclusive column, while there’s expert analysis from Craig O’Shannessy on why you should be charging the net more often.
We’ve also got advice on keeping cramp at bay, as well as all the latest gear news and reviews, including a shoe that can help you slide on hard courts.
