Nadal Wins His First Singles Match As He Returns To The Tour
Nadal lost his first service game but rallied in customary fashion as he
made a return to ATP tennis after seven months out with knee problems
which are still not completely healed to his satisfaction. Nadal reached
the quarter-finals in Vina del Mar, Chile, an ATP 250 event which has
never attracted such attention.
Spain’s Captain Will Make No Excuses For Davis Cup Defeat
Davis Cup captain Alex Corretja resigned to the fact that his depleted
team which lost to Canada in Davis Cup last weekend will now have to
contest September relegation round in order to stay in the elite World
Group. Spain went down to the hosts with the visitors missing David
Ferrer, Rafael Nadal, Nicolas Almagro and Fernando Verdasco, all either
injured or fatigued.
Former Doping Official Is Convinced Tennis Is Not Clean
Pound, who formulated the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), serving as
its president until 2007, was always strong in his belief that Lance
Armstrong was a drugs cheat. Now he is equally convinced that tennis has
a deep underlying drug culture that needs to be exposed.
Nalbandian Urges Davis Cup Team Unity
David Nalbandian is one of the most committed Davis Cup players in
history, earning himself a recent Davis Cup Commitment Award and
compiling an impressive 38-11 record. But the former top 5 player isn’t
known around the tour as terribly easygoing guy and in his now 11 years
with a team in which he has played 25 ties, he is urging unity.
