Federer Ranked #1 For 300th Week

Roger Federer is quietly celebrating another tennis record after reaching the quarter-finals of the Shanghai Masters. By doing so, the world's best assured himself of an historic 300th week atop the ATP rankings over the course of a world-beating career which may never be matched.



Murray Reveals Secret For His Success

Andy Murray has revealed one secret behind finally winning an elusive Grand Slam title at the recent US Open. The 25 year-old Scot maintains his mind is a lot clearer after coach Ivan Lendl suggested a course of analytical sessions with a Fort Lauderdale-based psychologist.

Lendl worked with Alexis Castorri during his playing career and when he started coaching Murray in January he suggested the world no.3 should follow suit.  And Murray is convinced Castorri’s input was hugely beneficial to his victory in New York.

Novak Djokovic will certainly be making his return to Serbia’s Davis Cup team in 2013 after opting out of this year’s campaign and only playing two rubbers since his nation won the trophy for the first time almost two years ago.

Djokovic insisted so long as he is fit following January’s Australian Open, he will spearhead the Serbian side that travels to Belgium for the World Group opener on February 1-3.
