Nadal Talks To The World Media

Rafael Nadal knew the questions on the state of his knees and whether they would hold up to the demands of hard court tennis would be repetitive and probing as he faced up to the press at Indian Wells. And he was as cautious with his answers as he will be when playing his first shots in the BNP Paribas Open.

Initially Nadal made the futile request: “"Forget about the knees, please!”


British Youngsters Lose Early In Indian Wells

British tennis fans could be considering something of a reassessment after the recent disappointing runs of Heather Watson and Laura Robson has cast doubts on the optimism that the home nation might have two seeded players in this year’s Wimbledon singles.


Townsend Getting Introduced To The Big Time

Sixteen-year-old American Taylor Townsend is already getting an introduction to the big time world of pro tennis.

Townsend, who won her first WTA main draw match over Lucie Hradecka in the first round of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, is quite pleased to be walking around with a pro player badge rather than a junior one. But she also realizes she has yet to join the elite ranks, which is clear by the how the locker rooms are set up.


Baltacha Thinking About Coming Back To Play The Tour

Britain’s former no.1 Elena Baltacha, sidelined since the Olympics because of foot surgery and now down to no.192 on the WTA rankings believes she can once again overtake the pair of British youngsters Heather Watson  and Laura Robson even though she will turn 30 years of age in six months’ time.
