Williams, The Veteran, is Ready to Become Wimbledon Champion

Serena Williams is set to become the first Wimbledon ladies champion over the age of 30 since Martina Navratilova 22 years ago and she gained the impetus for her swift rejuvenation after losing in the French Open first round came at the respected Mouratoglou Tennis Academy just outside Paris.

Frenchman Patrick Mouratoglou, owner and operator of the academy in the suburb of Thiverval-Grignon and currently the on-the-road coach of star pupil and Williamsí close friend Grigor Dimitrov, was co-opted as a coaching consultant to Serena. And he has been present in her Players Box throughout the Championships.

 

Murray is Subconsciously Stressed

Andy Murray has done a good job dealing with the pressure put on him in Britain over the years and on Wednesday he reached his fourth Wimbledon semifinal, but he admits that it's not easy to be the only man in his nation with a chance of raising the big trophy.

"I always play well here, so it doesn't affect me really in a bad way," said Murray.

 

Fish Skips Olympics to Play American Tour

Beaten tenth seed Mardy Fish was glad to leave the dicey weather of London and head to the US for a blast of summer as the American prepares to miss the London Olympics and play at home over the coming weeks.

The low-pressure hardcourt swing might be just the tonic for the 29-year-old who recently underwent a medical procedure to steady his heartbeat after spring health scares.

 

Azarenka Expects a Change of Atmosphere at All England Club

Beaten Wimbledon semi-finalist Victoria Azarenka is looking forward to a change of atmosphere when she returned in three weeks for the London Olympic tournament to be held at the All England club.

"I think it's going to be just interesting, nobody knows how it's going to be.  It's kind of new and exciting to see how it's going to turn out," said Azarenka, who added: "I'm actually really excited to see some McDonald's or Coca Cola in the back of the court.  It will be funny."

 

Federer Says Djokovic and He Get Along Just Fine

Roger Federer says off-court relations are fine between himself and Novak Djokovic as the pair of elites head into the final weekend of Wimbledon.

The calm Swiss could only recall one such incident, at Davis Cup semi-finals in 2006, when Djokovic seemed to step out of line. "I was just upset at him calling the trainer out for no obvious reason against my buddy, Stan, in a five-setter," said the six-time Wimbledon winner who stands 14-12 against the Serb.

 

Kerberís Lifetime Dream is Fulfilled When She Met Graf in Wimbledon

German Angelique Kerber has fulfilled a longtime dream at Wimbledon as she met former champion Steffi Graf. The encounter came after Kerber's quarter-final defeat of countrywoman Sabine Lisicki and the day before she lost in straight sets to Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska.
