Here is a Tennis Man of the Ages

I have long believed that in tennis and in life nothing happens until someone serves. The Tennis Industry must believe that too, for on August 24 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York an induction ceremony will be held honoring Nick Bollettieri as its newest member.



Tennis Favorites at Olympics Are Winning

It's so far, so good for Roger Federer and Serena Williams as the Grand Slam pair aim to duplicate their recent Wimbledon titles with career-first singles gold medals at the London Olympics.

Both multiple champion came through swirling windy conditions at the All England club in second-round matches. Between them Federer and Williams own 31 career singles trophies at the majors.


Fish Leads The Field in Washington

Mardy Fish heads a field of Olympic exiles and wannabes as the 13th-ranked American plays under the radar as top seed at the new combined ATP-WTA event in Washington, with the veteran happy enough not to be involved in the London Games.


Delhi to Host 2012 India Open

The India Open will mark the return of professional women's tennis to India since 2008 (Hyderabad from 2003-2005, Bangalore from 2006-08).

The India Open will be the region's second event as part of the WTA Challenger Series, as Taipei will play host to the inaugural tournament.


Editor’s Note

In Monday’s Daily Tennis News about Elena Baltacha’s future involving ankle surgery, we erred in identifying her first Olympic match as a loss. In fact, she won. We apologize for the error.
