Williams Wins First Title In Almost Three Years

Venus Williams has finally ended a wait of almost three years after her last singles trophy success, with the former No. 1 winning her 44th career title through a defeat of Monica Niculescu in Luxembourg 6-2, 6-3. It was in Acapulco in February, 2010, that the American last lifted a singles trophy prior to her 2011 diagnosis with fatigue illness.



Watson Claims Her Success Came After Murray’s Olympic Snub

Heather Watson, Britain’s first WTA title winner in 24 years and now a fully fledged member of the women’s top 50 has revealed for the first time that the Olympic snub she suffered at the hands of Andy Murray, provided her with the impetus to prove herself better than friend, compatriot but rival Laura Robson.



Federer Aiming For His Sixth Basel Title

Memories will come flooding back for Roger Federer as the world No. 1 plays again at his hometown event, the Swiss Indoors, bidding to win a sixth title in his own personal tennis stronghold.

The top seed got his start in the game as a ballboy nearly two decades ago and has never lost his love for the sport first developed in the St Jakobshalle in Basle. "I was a ball boy," he recalled in the run-up to this year's edition. As a result of that experience, Federer always takes time after the Basle final to share a pizza with the current crop of ball kids, a custom he has developed over the years.


Tennis Channel To Carry Istanbul Live

Tennis Channel will carry all singles round-robin matches and both semifinals live, with a same-day encore of the championship match on Sunday, October 28.

Tipsarevic Is Shooting For A Place In The London Draw

With the race to London heating up with just two more weeks of regular season play remaining on the ATP, contender Janko Tipsarevic is doing his best to keep his mind in the present. The Serb stands provisional ninth for the eight-man World Tour Finals in London from November 5.
