Federer Gets Apology From Would-Be Assassin

A bizarre internet threat against Roger Federer took another twist on Wednesday with the alleged plotter who had said he would assassinate the Swiss before this week's Shanghai Masters "apologizing" online.




Hewitt Not Ready To Retire

Lleyton Hewitt, currently world no.105 and more than two years on from his last ATP World Tour title is insistent he is not ready to follow the Andy Roddick route into retirement and is already planning his 2013 schedule with a commitment to play the year opening event in Brisbane.



Murray Is Comfortable With Australian Open Progress

Andy Murray is insistent he was never happy with the potential threat to boycott the Australian Open over the matter of prize money and applauded the reaction of the tournament organizers to raise the cash on offer to $Aus30 million.

Murray spoke to Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley on the subject earlier this week in Shanghai and said: “It sounds like the talks went pretty well, which is good and I think the Australian Open has stepped up really well.  


Baltacha Bouncing Back After Surgery

Former British no.1 women’s player Elena Baltacha has successfully undergone surgery to remove a bone spur in her right ankle and now the 29-year-old will convalesce before deciding on whether to continue with her playing career or concentrate on the tennis academy she has established in her home town of Ipswich.
