Federer Gets Comfortable With Festive US Open

Roger Federer has made another successful switch to the carnival-like action of the US Open, with the focused Swiss world No. 1 quietly going about his business of trying to claim a sixth title at the frenetic event

Federer is simply going with the flow and keeping a discreet distance from as many non-tennis factors as possible. "The distractions are big here just because you almost enjoy your time too much," said the 17-time Grand Slam champion.


Britain’s Konta Is Showing Promise

British women’s tennis continues to be upwardly mobile with new recruit Johanna Konta winning her way through to the second round of US Open after qualifying at New York’s Flushing Meadows.




USTA To Honor Hamilton And Snow

The USTA will honor posthumously 2012 International Tennis Hall of Fame inductee and wheelchair tennis pioneer  Randy Snow and former USTA CEO and pioneer of the Diversity and Inclusion Department at the USTA, the late Lee Hamilton.

The ICON Awards celebrate individual and institutional accomplishments and commitments to diversity and inclusion; as well as emphasize the USTA’s commitment to fairness and equality. The Awards reception and presentations will be held September 4 in the Hospitality Pavilion of the Chase Center at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, New York.


Tennis Media Select Melbourne and Indian Wells As Top Media-Friendly Events

Members of the International Tennis Writers Association (ITWA), have voted the two events as the most “media-friendly” tournaments on the international circuit.
