Player Defaulted In DC For Accidently Hitting Line Judge

Line 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.

The 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.

Martina 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.
