Strycova Given Six-Month Ban For Doping Violation

As calls for increased levels of drug testing have become prevalent in top-flight tennis and the Czech Republic’s Barbora Zahlavova Strycova has been given a back-dated six-month ban after testing positive for a banned stimulant, the sport’s four ruling bodies have agreed to meet in New York next month to address the issue.



Williams Could Regain Number One This Week

As she approaches a possible return to No. 1 status, Serena Williams can't seem to work out her sentiments on the possibility. In Doha this week and needing a semi-final placing to clinch the top WTA spot and displace Victoria Azarenka, the American can't seem to get her public story straight.



Russell Is Amazed By Djokovic

American veteran Michael Russell will turn 35 in May and one of the few men of that age still in the top 100 in singles. A bulldog of a player who came on tour primarily as a counterpuncher, over recent years he has forced himself to come forward more often as he isn’t quick as he once was and it doesn’t benefit him to be constantly drawn into long rallies. Russell is wowed by no. 1 Novak Djokovic, whom he says has taken the game to new heights.


Del Potro Disagrees With Nadal About Court Surfaces

Argentine Juan Del Potro has offered a contrasting opinion after Rafael Nadal's angry supposition that hard court ATP play is damaging player health. The Argentine who won the 2009 US Open, said that it's up to each player to make his own scheduling choices.

"Hard court might not be the best for his (Nadal's) knees, that's true," said Del Potro, ranked seventh on the ATP. "But of course he's fantastic on clay, that's his surface.
