Federer Gets Death Threat

Security at the Shanghai Rolex Masters is always extremely tight but it will be intensified still more after world no.1 Roger Federer has been the target on an online death threat. Both the Shanghai police and government agencies have been alerted to investigate the threat after an unknown blogger said he planned to "assassinate" the 31 year-old Swiss in a threatening posting on a much visited Chinese website.

Murray Watched His Brother Win US Open On TV And Went To Bed

Jamie Murray, back alongside his US Open winning brother Andy to defend their Rakuten Open title in Tokyo this week, revealed he watched Britain’s biggest tennis triumph in 76 years quietly in his Luxembourg hotel and celebrated by simply switching off his bedroom light.

The elder Murray sibling was battling towards a doubles final on the second tier Challenger circuit in the small Luxembourgian town of Petange. One brother pocketed $1.8 million for his labors, the other earned $1,400 for a week’s work.
