Stomach Virus Causes Nadal To Withdraw From Abu Dhabi

Rafael Nadal has made a late withdrawal from the Abu Dhabi exhibition starting on Thursday, citing a stomach virus. The No. 4 last played six months ago when he lost early at Wimbledon and has not been back on court since due to a left knee injury which he insists is fine now.



Del Potro Will Not Play First Round Davis Cup Tie With Germany

Argentina will be without Juan Del Potro after the national No. 1 came good on his vow to skip the opening round, to be played against Germany February 1-3. The decision was barely a surprise for Argentine tennis, where Del Potro and Davis Nalbandian are hardly on speaking terms and the atmosphere in the Davis Cup squad is reportedly chilly at best.



Hewitt: Doping Suspensions Need To Be More Harsh

Lleyton Hewitt says that one of the problems with drug testing on the ATP Tour is that the lengths of the sentences for those who are found guilty are too short.



Sharapova Knows It Will Be A Tough 2013, But She Is Ready

Maria Sharapova has some ground to make up as she starts 2013 hopefully locked in a battle of elites at the Brisbane tournament also featuring rivals Serena Williams and No. 1 Victoria Azarenka.

The LA-based Russian has not beaten Williams since 2004 and lost four of six meetings against Azarenka, including the Australian Open a year ago. But hope is not lost for Sharapova, richest woman's earner in all of sport.
