DAILY TENNIS NEWS - BRIEFS

Bryan Brothers Continue to Make History
Bryan brothers have made more tennis history at the US Opens, with their
fourth title in New York pulling the pair level with the all-time best
team in the game. Americans Bob and Mike defeated Leander Paes and Radek
Stepanek 6-3, 6-4 to join John Newcombe and Tony Roche as the most
successful pairing ever to play the sport. They passed the 11 titles of
Aussies Mark Woodforde and Todd Woodbridge.
Decide Soon If He Is To Play Davis Cup
Federer may well be ready to ride to the rescue again for Switzerland
when his nation plays this weekend to remain in the Davis Cup World
group against the Netherlands.
Swiss captain Severing Luthi, one of Federer's coaches,
named his best to the Swiss squad along with Stanslas Wawrinka, Marco
Chiudinelli and Henri Laaksonen.
Unhappy With Playing Conditions In Loss To Murray
Czech Tomas Berdych says his big game was blown away in the howling
winds which plagued the US Open semi-final which he says should never
have been staged in such atrocious conditions.
But as a veteran of the Open and its unorthodox
scheduling as determined by the US television gods, the Czech has just
one answer to the debacle which he lost in four sets and four hours to
Andy Murray: "no one cares," he said of organisers.
Another In Her Home Grand Slam
Williams can hardly believe how she concluded a superlative summer by
winning the US Open for a fourth time, notching titles at her home Grand
Slam over three different decades with a huge time span between the
first at the latest.
"Three decades. The '90s (1999), 2000s (2002) and
2010s, that's kinda cool," said the 30-year-old who will take a rest
with only two more event scheduled after a torrid summer of winning
performances. "I just think that it's exciting to have this
opportunity. And 13 years is a long time between the first and the
last. It's just a great."
For Dropping Super Saturday
being forced to win a weather-affected two-day match to finally book his
place in the US Open final, Novak Djokovic has added his influential
voice to those calling for the abolition of the outdated "Super
Saturday" scheduling which has led to half a decade of delayed Monday
"If I'm not mistaken, this is the fifth Monday
final here in US Open," said Djokovic. "I'm not so sure about this Super
Saturday any more. I really hope that the tournament will consider
changing things for next year."
Expects To See A Highly Motivated Murray Today
Djokovic fears that inspired opponent Andy Murray could be on the
warpath as the Scot rides momentum from his Olympic gold medal to a
possible first Grand Slam title when he faces the Serb in the delayed
men's title match at the US Open.
Scotsmen Are Hoping For A Murray Win Today At The US Open
Murray was guaranteed some VIP support from his fellow Scots in today’s
US Open final against Novak Djokovic. Manchester United’s most
successful manager Sir Alex Ferguson along with Sir Sean Connery, the
former actor most famed for playing James Bond, were ready to lead the
cheer leaders along with Murray’s mother Judy.
