An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Robson Fires Coach Krajan 

After being freed from his duties of coaching Laura Robson, the Croatian Zeljko Krajan insisted the 19 year-old Briton, tipped by such female icons as Billie Jean King and Chris Evert to be a potential Grand Slam winner, simply didn’t take her profession as a top class tennis player seriously enough.



Welcome Mats Being Pulled From Tomic

The law of most countries insists any man is innocent until proven guilty but although John Tomic’s trial for causing bodily harm to his son Bernard’s practice partner Thomas Drouet does not take place until May 14, tennis’ latest controversial parent has been told he will not be allowed through the gates of Roland Garros for this year's French Open. Even though the ATP World Tour announced earlier this week that John Tomic would be barred from receiving credentials at tour events until further notice, their powers do not extend to the four Grand Slam tournaments.



More On USTA’s Land Deal With City of New York

In related news when it comes to Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Sheik Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan, a wealthy member of the Abu Dhabi royal family who owns the Manchester City soccer franchise in England, has entered the final stages of negotiation with  Major League Soccer to buy a team and put it into a new stadium in the same park in Flushing, close to the US Open site. Plans call for a  25,000 to 35,000-seat soccer stadium, which has also been opposed by parks groups as it would take away 13 acres of parkland. It is said to be $340 million deal that the City supports.  The owner would privately finance the stadium, which according to Crain’s would operate on a 35-year, $1-a-year lease.
