Williams Could be Playing in Her Final Wimbledon

Venus Williams, who turned 32 at the weekend, could be playing in her last Wimbledon, according to American television commentator and former player Pam Shriver. The ESPN talker said that with the auto-immune condition which affects Venus, playing tennis at the top level is now a huge strain on her body.



Haas in Top Form at Halle

Tommy Haas can dream again of achievements in tennis after the 34-year-old upset Roger Federer 7-6 (5), 6-4 to unexpectedly win the Halle grass-court title.

"I don't have many words to say really, except that it is an amazing feeling to win another title in Germany," said the LA-based veteran who made a comeback after hip surgery. "Winning a 13th title was a goal for me and to maybe even achieve it at home before the end of my career."

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will be good to go after all when Wimbledon starts in a week after his finger injury from Queen's club when he fell on his right little finger.
