It just wouldn’t be a Dog of the Year contest without one of Jim Ramberg’s dogs in the top spot. I’ve received dozens of letters, emails, texts and tweets from people who either wanted their dog to be entered or wanted to talk to me about Jim and how much of an affect he had on them. It was a joy to read each new entry and figure out a way to tell each dog’s story to the best of my ability. I fully understand why Jim loved doing this contest each year. Thank you for reaching out to me and telling me about the bond between you and your dogs. I knew from the start that I wanted to have one of Jim’s dogs win posthumously — I just didn’t know which one. My dad, David, was a longtime hunting buddy of Jim’s and was the one who first suggested doing a new Dog of the Year contest and having Jim’s dog win one last time. Stonewall seemed like the obvious choice, as he was Jim’s favorite dog and a legend among all four-legged beasts. However, I also liked the idea of finally letting Katy, the English Setter from Hell, get a win under her belt. But since this is my way of honoring Jim’s legacy, I think the best option would be to have them all crowned champion. Since Katy never got to win one, we’ll start with her.
PARIS – Fifty parting thoughts from the 2015 French Open, where No. 1 Serena Williams won her third title in Paris and her 20th major overall and No. 8 Stan Wawrinka took down No. 1 Novak Djokovic to win his first French Open title and second... At the halfway turn to the season, cleaning out the notebook (and MS Word file) from the 2015 French Open:. • On the day American Pharoah won the Triple Crown, Serena Williams moved closer to tennis’ Quadruple Crown, taking the winner’s title. It’s axiomatic (that is, cliché) to say that “the player most capable most capable beating Serena is Serena,” but that’s one of the takeaways from the event. Playing on her poorest surface, suffering from the flu, unable to summon anything close to her best tennis, she was still good enough to win her 20th Slam. • Novak Djokovic will not win the Grand Slam this year. Because after thrashing Rafael Nadal and outlasting Andy Murray, he ran into Stan Wawrinka. In a tremendous performance, Stan punished a tennis ball for four sets, winning 4–6, 6–4, 6–3, 6–4. His 60th winner on match point was this performance writ small. But for all the build-up, the undisputed No. 1 still lacks a French Open title. • Lucie Safarova played the finest Slam of her long career, reaching the final. And she was rewarded for her bold play in the second set. She then partnered with Bethanie Mattek-Sands to win the doubles title.
