"Uncharted" movie finally coming to a theatre near you June 2016

Sony has moved around some dates in its movie schedule, making room for Nathan Drake’s big screen debut. Sony announced today that it will be releasing the film adaptation of Naughty Dog’s action series on June 10, 2016.
That date originally belonged to The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which Sony has now bumped back by two years. Spider-Man fans won’t be left out in the cold though, as Sony is planning a Sinister Six film for November 11, 2016.
Uncharted director Seth Gordon plans to start shooting in early 2015, though there’s no lead attached to the film yet. The screenplay is currently being written by David Guggenheim.
Uncharted will next appear on PlayStation 4 in 2015, and there are hints that it might be the last entry in the series. For more check out the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End trailer from E3.

A lot of people seem to want Nathan Fillion to play Nathan Drake, and I have to agree that would work well. It's either him, or the original voice behind the character Nolan North.

Novak Djokovic's coach Boris Becker says Roger Federer is still the G.O.A.T.

Boris Becker had a fun time around his protege Novak Djokovic recently. First the party to celebrate Novak's victory in London (check what Boris had to say about that fun night), then the wedding ceremony for Djokovic and his now wife Jelena in Montenegro (check the location here).

Despite all that buzz, Boris still likes to focus on tennis, and decided to open up about how he feels about Roger Federer, beaten by Novak in the final of the Championships last week.

"It was incredible to have 4 Wimbledon champions in the locker room at the same time, I think it's a first!" said Boris to the media referring to the Wimbledon final, as himself and Stefan Edberg were both present for the final in London, 

"Roger Federer has already won Wimbledon 7 times and has been World No.1 for a very long time. He didn't really need another title, he is the greatest of all time and I have a lot of respect and admiration for him. With his comeback in the 4th set, he showed clearly why he deserves the G.O.A.T. status. He loves to compete and he is a great ambassador for tennis. Kids should take as an example what he did in his career, and how he managed to overcome complicated situations, as he did against Novak in the final in London".

Roger Federer's hard court schedule starts in Toronto Canada

Roger Federer will return to the tour in Toronto, where he is looking to win a third Canada Masters title

Federer has been resurgent this year, with the addition of a new coach in former Slam legend Stefan Edberg, and a newer larger racquet. Almost immediately it started paying dividend with a run to the Brisbane final in the season opener, and most recently he came within a blade of grass of lifting an eighth Wimbledon title.

The off-season will give him some much needed time with new family members, twin sons Leo and Lenny before he returns to hit the two Masters 1000 series events ahead of the US Open.

First stop will be Toronto, where he will try and get in a deep run. He won in 2004 and 2006, falling in the finals in 2007 (to Novak Djokovic) and again in 2010 where he lost in two tight sets to Andy Murray.

Having skipped the Masters in 2012 and 2013 he will make his return at the prestigious event, and then will join the rest of the ATP elite as they move on to Cincinnati where he will try once more for an unprecedented sixth title in the precursor to the US Open.

There, Federer was untouchable between 2005 and 2008 before Juan Martin Del Potro broke the chain in 2009, and since then Federer has gradually fallen earlier and earlier, last year losing in the fourth round.

Federer firmly believes he still has more Slam wins left in him, so can he make one more tilt in New York?

The Rogers Cup starts on 4 August and the Cincinnati Masters on 11 August. The US Open takes place between 25 August to 8 September.

Martina Hingis starts successful return with Washington Kastles in World Team Tennis

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- With World TeamTennis, Billie Jean King aims to bring tennis to America. She certainly has corporate America's attention.
The crowd of 2,254 that turned out for the home opener for the four-time and defending WTT champion Washington Kastles was nearly a thousand short of capacity at George Washington University's Smith Center, the team's new indoor home.
But there was no shortage of advertising. From Bloomberg banners, Absolut Vodka bottle advertisement cutouts, 20-second Geico timeouts, ubiquitous Nike Swooshes, Wilson W's, signs for FedEx, Marriott Residence Inn and a host of lesser-known medical devices and companies, corporate America sees a target audience.
Even Washington's team name, Kastles, comes from Kastle Systems, a Virginia-based technology security company.
On Wednesday, the Kastles swept all five sets from the Boston Lobsters to win 25-8, tying the largest margin of victory in franchise history.
The tennis remains top-notch. Martina Hingis still has the light-touch and finesse that made her a five-time Grand Slam singles champion and International Tennis Hall of Famer. Her game translates even better to doubles and mixed-doubles, where she holds nine Grand-Slam titles.
Hingis and Venus Williams are known for their "rivalry for the ages" during the late 1990s and early 2000s. On July 16 in D.C., Hingis and Williams will team up for the first time against the Philadelphia Freedom. Hingis was stoked to finally play with her former rival.
"I can't wait, obviously," Hingis said. "I only had to face her on the other side of the net, so it will be so cool to play with her. With Venus as a doubles partner, I can't imagine what it's like to be in Serena's shoes. The serves are coming at you at 125 miles an hour, that's pretty cool."
On Wednesday, playing with former World No. 1-ranked doubles partner Leander Paes in the opening match, Hingis hit several backhand cross-court winners.
Kevin Anderson was the night's other standout. The 6-8 South African, a true two-handed backhand baseline basher, showered his opponents with serves that reached as much as 150 mph.
WTT league play returns Thursday at 7 p.m. in Washington D.C., San Diego and Boston.
