ATP Board Approves Some Rule Changes

At its recent meetings in New York, the ATP Board of Directors approved a rule change and a trial for the 2013 season, both proposed by the new ATP Competition Committee.

From 2013, on both the ATP World Tour and ATP Challenger Tour, a time violation between points (25 seconds) will be penalized in the first instance with a warning. For the second and all subsequent violations, the penalty will be a fault for the server and a point penalty for the receiver. Currently, the rule is a warning and then point penalty for both the server and receiver.


Ferrero Has Decided To Retire From The Tour

Another of men’s tennis former world no.1’s, Spain’s Juan Carlos Ferrero has announced he will bring his competitive career to a close a little over nine years since officially becoming the ATP World Tour’s top ranked player when he retires after next month's Valencia Open.
