Berdych Leads Czech Republic To Davis Cup Finals

Barely a week after suffering the disappointment of losing out in the U.S. Open semi final, Tomas Berdych is now experiencing the elation of leading the Czech Republic into a surprise place in the Davis Cup final.

Now the Czech’s go forward to meeting defending champion’s Spain who beat the United States on home soil in Gijon and are now aiming at a fourth title in five years.


Murray Gets Spectacular Homecoming

Andy Murray was afforded a true hero’s homecoming as 15,000 of his fellow Scots lined the streets of Dunblane for the US Open champion and Olympic gold medalist. His adoring fans chanted Murray’s name after waiting in pouring rain for hours as he walked victoriously through the streets, stopping at a golden postbox erected in his honor before heading to the courts where he learnt to play the sport.



Agassi Connects With People, Not Companies

Andre Agassi is taking his post tennis career as seriously, if not more seriously than he did the last decade or so of his on court life when he recommitted himself to the game.

"I connect with people, not companies," Agassi said. "So when I form a relationship with a company it's because I have a relationship with its leaders. And I find that I can only form a relationship with a company's leaders if their approach is authentic, if their product fits within my values and world view. That's a long way of saying I don't lend my name to anything that isn't me."


Murray Witnesses The Benefit of Celebrity

Andy Murray was quick to learn the lessons of tennis celebrity status, as the new US Open champion and his 30 closest friends ate on the house at a New York Chinese restaurant after he broke his Grand Slam duck with last weekend's title over Novak Djokovic.

Team Murray and friends descended on a Manhattan establishment and stayed for two hours, according to the New York Daily News. In addition to a food tab in excess of $5,000, there were also the drinks, though the new champion stuck to his teetotaler lifestyle by drinking a lemon fizz. The dinner food and drink came at no charge to the tennis hero, who got it all comped, courtesy of his new status as a Grand Slam champion.
