DAILY TENNIS NEWS - BRIEFS

Djokovic Likes Being Number One

Novak Djokovic has been the world No. 1 for one year. The Serb took over the spot a year ago from Rafael Nadal and has not relinquished his grip.

"It was obviously always my ambition and my career goal to be the best at what I do," said the top seed. "I've been dedicating my whole life to this sport, and I was able to achieve my goals last year in Wimbledon to win my dream tournament and then become No. 1," said Djokovic. 

 

Without a Coach, Tsonga Consults Other Players

Jo Wilfried Tsonga is the only member of the top 10 without a coach, but he continues to make strides even though many players believe it’s critical to have another person watching their technique and plotting match strategies for them.

"Even if I'm alone, I like to ask," he said. "I like to learn from the others.  So every time, when I play, I try to have some advice from other guy like Guy Forget or Arnaud Clément and players who are still on the tour."

 

Williams Likes Playing Under the Roof 

Serena Williams has been playing at Wimbledon since she was 16 years old, has won the title singles titles four times and experienced a whole spectrum of emotions on Centre Court. But playing under the closed roof was a new experience for somebody on course for her 14th Grand Slam victory, and an atmosphere in which she reveled.

“I loved the sound of the balls. It’s kind of like a whoosh and a pop. It’s really cool. It’s almost like a video game, but you’re playing. It kind of flies through and you hear it when it lands. I really like playing indoors.’’

 

Rededicated Kerber Finds Success

The tennis world only really began to become familiar with German Angelique Kerber at the 2011 US Open, when she stunned an in-form Agnieszka Radwanska. Ten months later, the left hander has become a significant player, cracking the top eight and now reaching her second Grand Slam semifinal.

Today she will face Radwanska again, this time in the Wimbledon semifinals. Her road has been long and arduous. but she is now reaping the benefits of her hard work.

 

Murray is a Multi-sport Fan

Andy Murray is extremely cosmopolitan in his sporting tastes; he loves watching both soccer and boxing but has also revealed himself to be an ardent fan of NBA Basketball and maintains he gains inspiration in his long standing quest to end a 76 year for a British champion at Wimbledon by the patient success of Miami Heat star LeBron James.

 

Georgia Tech Names Harmon Head Women’s Coach

Georgia Tech announced it has hired Rodney Harmon as head coach of their women’s team replacing Bryan Shelton who has moved to the University of Florida. Harmon has been a long-time USTA coach and director of men’s tennis, as well as the US Olympic men’s team in 2008.
