Wimbledon’s Groundskeepers Are Getting Ready for The Olympics

Legions of groundsmen may be fighting the calendar and yet another British soaking from the temperamental London weather, but Wimbledon officials remain confident that the All England Club will be ready to meet the deadline when the London Olympic tennis events starts a fortnight from this weekend.   It has been wet, wet. wet for most of last month and this one in Britain, which is experiencing flooding in some parts.

Grass is Past and Bartoli is Ready For Hard Courts

Marion Bartoli has buried her bad memories of a second-round Wimbledon exit as the French second seed prepares to begin afresh on hardcourts at the WTA Bank of the West Classic. "I have to move on from the grass," said the 2007 Wimbledon finalist, who also won this week's northern Californian event in 2009.

"It is a totally different time now, I feel a lot more energized (since she lost so early in London). I hope to carry on this form through the US Open, where I hope to finally pass the second round (after losing in the opening round for the past three editions)."
