But Jack Nicklaus believes Woods will play again, and told the Washington Post he expects him to be able to “slap it around”.

The record 18-time major champion told the paper: “I know Tiger. What he did at Torrey Pines [winning the 2008 U.S. Open] on a broken leg, what does that tell you? He’ll still be able to slap it around, and if he can putt, he’ll be all right.

“I don’t know if he can reach his old level, but I do expect him to play again.”

Venus is cutting ties with Jupiter — TMZ has learned tennis star Venus Williams is giving away her fancy Jupiter, Florida home FOR FREE … to her mother.

According to official records, Venus deeded her mother, Oracene the 2,804 sq. ft. house in September. The only money exchanged — $10. Clearly, the house is a gift, and the nominal fee just keeps it legal.

Venus originally purchased the 4-bedroom, 3-bath home for $310,000 back in 2000 … which has to be the greatest year of her career: she won the U.S. Open, Wimbledon, and an Olympic gold medal.

Total prize money for Wimbledon and the Open that year was more than $1.5 million … so the house purchase would have been a breeze for Venus.

‘I think Roger Federer certainly transformed tennis’, says former star

Published

Novak Djokovic’s recent triumph at Roland Garros helped fuel the debate over the best ever again. The number 1 in the world, who reassembled Stefanos Tsitsipas in the last act, has therefore put his 19th Grand Slam title on the bulletin board, reaching only one length behind Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

As the youngest of the Big 3s, the 34-year-old from Belgrade has a great chance to end his career with the most majors. The Serbian veteran has made no secret that he would like to host the ‘Calendar Grand Slam’ this year, as he will be the main favorite at both Wimbledon and the US Open.

His ride to the sixth seal at the Championships started well, despite having conceded a set to local favorite Jack Draper in the opening round. With Nadal in the pits to recharge his batteries and Federer close to saying goodbye, one wonders who can stop his domination.

In the course of an interview with the Herald, former Australian champion Pat Cash expressed his opinion on the issue of the greatest ever.

Pat Cash on the GOAT debate

“Head-to-heads are significant. If you want to throw in who the greatest player of all time is, you have to have a winning head to head record against your other peers,” Pat Cash said.

“Overall, (as) a player who can do everything, Roger Federer has to be up there. Rafael Nadal, of course, was a very good volleyer and was able to use that,” Cash said. “Not in the later years because his tactics were never going to trouble Federer.

But Novak Djokovic’s returning, serving and ground strokes on slower grass courts that we have these days, to me, it feels like a bit of a pity that the courts have slowed down so much. Or the balls have slowed down, I should say.”

Cash then proceeded to lavish praise on 20-time Major winner Roger Federer, crediting the Swiss for transforming the sport through his versatile style of play. “I think he certainly transformed tennis. He brought it to another level in the modern era.

He showed players could play at the back of the court and be equally as good at the net and around the net,” Cash said. “His movement was phenomenal and I think he certainly brought an element of style and flashiness and the shots he could produce – it’s the best of what we seen from the Bjorg and Connors at the baseline and McEnroe, Edberg, Sampras, those types of volleys.”
