Britain’s Watson Wins A Pro Event

Barely a month after Andy Murray demanded a long overdue reprint of the British national tennis record books by becoming the first male Grand Slam champion for 76 years than Heather Watson stepped forward to ensure another by ending a 24 years long wait for a woman from the United Kingdom to win a WTA title.

The 20 year-old from Guernsey, won the HP Japan Open title in Osaka.


Ferrer Qualifies For London

Three spots remain open for the World Tour Finals after Spain's David Ferrer was confirmed as the fifth to qualify for the eight-man event which begins November 5. Ferrer will be playing the season wrap-up for the third straight year, reaching the semi-finals a year ago against eventual champion Roger Federer whole losing all three of his group matches the year before.



Federer Heads Home To Basel With Number One Ranking In His Pocket

Roger Federer was far from happy after losing his Shanghai Masters semi-final 6-4, 6-4 to Andy Murray. But the Swiss says that despite the setback he has already achieved his main objective for this ATP season as he heads to his home Swiss Indoors event in Basel in a week.

Despite going down to defeat, Federer said he has achieved a major goal: "I wanted to get back to world No. 1 this year," he said.


Djokovic Is Aiming For Number One At Year End

By winning the Shanghai Rolex Masters and braving no fewer than five match points against Andy Murray in the final, Novak Djokovic took a major step towards overhauling Roger Federer to end 2012 as the World No.1 for the second year in succession.

And the Serb did not hide his ambition as he pocketed the $US669,450 winners’ check by saying: “The year ending no.1 ranking, it's my biggest objective in this moment.  It's something I'm aiming for."
