In DC For Accidently Hitting Line Judge
judges have been regarded as an endangered species after David
Nalbandian vented his anger on some courtside furniture in last year’s
Queen’s Club final and left the official in charge of the baseline with
a badly gashed shin. Now Russia’s Olga Puchkova has been defaulted from
her second round match at Washington DC’s Citi Open after a tempestuous
reaction to losing a point in the third set resulted in a male line
judge being hit hard on the knee.
Monfils And Fish
Withdraw From Montreal
tournament director Eugène Lapierre announced the withdrawal of Gaël
Monfils of France, who injured his ankle in training and Mardy Fish, who
withdrew for personal reasons .
US Open To Include
USTA announced the field for the 2013 US Open Wheelchair Competition.
The event, in its sixth year, will be held Sept. 5-8, at the USTA Billie
Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, N.Y. The 2013 US Open
Wheelchair Competition will feature a Men’s, Women’s and Quad Division,
and will include six events: men’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s
singles, women’s doubles, quad singles and quad doubles. Wheelchair
tennis follows the same rules as able-bodied tennis, except that the
ball can bounce twice.
Hingis Would Like
To Play Mixed Doubles At The US Open
Hingis won't push her luck by trying to extend her new tennis comeback
which began in Carlsbad with a 6-1, 6-1 win alongside Daniela
Hantuchova. But the five-time Swiss grand slam winner does admit that
she is still seeking an ATP partner for mixed doubles which she hopes to
play at the US Open.

Meadows in six weeks time set to each collect a massive $2.6 million.
