Gasquet Defeats Ferrer For
Spot To Play Nadal
Gasquet has long been revered as aesthetically one of the finest tennis
players of his generation. But the Frenchman’s durability to withstand
big match pressure in Grand Slam events was open to doubt after
repeatedly losing the big matches.
Top Players Say Federer Is Not Going Away From
The Top Of The Heap
Federer’s worst season in Grand Slams for more than a decade and the
sight of him moving down the ATP World Tour rankings have led many to
believe the once imperious Swiss is a spent force. But world no.1 Novak
Djokovic and defending US Open champion Andy Murray both insist any such
talk is both premature and foolhardy.
Pennetta Cried A Lot
After Her Return
Pennetta, who returned from wrist surgery earlier this year, says the
effort she put into returning to tour was worth it after her US Open
run. Pennetta defeated fellow Italian Roberta Vinci to reach her first
Grand Slam semifinal at 31.
"It's always up and down
because I cannot find a way to be consistent all the time," she
said. "But I was working hard, still working every day with my coach,
with my physio, with the physical coach, and also with my psychologist,
yeah. Was not easy, I can tell you. I cry a lot. But I love this sport.
I would like to have a chance just to prove myself. I try my best. If I
can come back, good. If not, I have a good career. I don't have to do
nothing more. But I would like to try 100%, and I did it. Now the
result, it's good."
Gets US Open Sportsmanship Award
No. 5 David Ferrer has received the second annual “US Open Sportsmanship
Award,” presented to the male and female pro tennis players who best
demonstrate excellence in sportsmanship throughout the Emirates Airline
US Open Series and the US Open. The award was presented to Ferrer
Wednesday at the US Open by USTA Sportsmanship Selection Committee
Chairman Todd Martin.
Murray Understands The Reason For Roofs At The
Murray is tempering his anticipation of someday playing under a moveable
roof at the weather-prone US Open, reminding that the $550-million
project to cover a couple of show courts will still only benefit a tiny
group of mainly elite players.
Isner and Stephens Out Early In The US Open Will
Get Back To Work In Asia
Stephens and John Isner, both who were uncooked out of the US Open, says
they won't be taking it easy during the fall season.
