Djokovic Calls For Covers On Courts To Shorten Rain Delays

After major rain interruptions in two of his matches in Toronto, Novak Djokovic has called for court covers to become standard issue for North American events which seem particularly susceptible to showers and their resulting long delays.

"The only thing I can take out from this experience aside from trying to be calm and save as much energy as I can, is that I don't see any reason why hard court tournaments don't have covers on their courts."


Olympic Injuries Hurt Cincinnati

The post-Olympic injury toll which many had feared is biting hard as the hard-luck Cincinnati Masters begins, with major names missing at the final major tune-up prior to the start of the US Open in just over a fortnight.




Injury Forces Murray To Skip Cincinnati

The luck has turned sour for Olympic gold medalist Andy Murray after the two-time champion was forced to withdraw from the Toronto Masters with a post-Games knee problem.




Nadal Has Dinner With Spanish King 

Rafael Nadel may be out of tennis for the moment as his injured knee heals from tendinitis, but the Spanish tennis hero boosted his spirits after missing the Olympics and the US Open run-up season by dining with his country's king on his home island of Mallorca.
