Friday, September 6, 2013

Davenport, Pierce, Martinez, Vandierendonck, Bollettieri, Grimes, Barrett Nominated For Hall Of Fame

Former world No. 1 and 6-time Grand Slam tournament champion Lindsay Davenport; Mary Pierce, the winner of two Grand Slam tournament titles in singles; and 1994 Wimbledon Champion Conchita Martinez of Spain have all been nominated to receive the highest honor in tennis, enshrinement into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Class of 2014. Also nominated is Chantal Vandierendonck, Nick Bollettieri, Jane Brown Grimes, and British tennis broadcaster and author John Barrett.


Bryans Miss Chance for 2013 Grand Slam

Bob and Mike Bryan have achieved just about everything a doubles team can in tennis but the Californian twins who statistically stand as the best ever must still wonder what it is like to win this sport’s Holy Grail – the Grand Slam.




Wawrinka Reaches His First Major Semi-Finals

Stanislas Wawrinka has been a man-in-waiting for too long. The second Swiss has played a subservient role to Roger Federer for most of the last decade but he is now a Grand Slam semi-finalist for the first time after emphatically ending Andy Murray’s reign as US Open champion.


Tomic Receives Suspended Sentence

Bernard Tomic's father John has reportedly been given an eight-month suspended sentence for the assault of his son's former hitting partner.




Murray Decries US Open Scheduling

The way Andy Murray figures it, the less said the better about another year of quirky US Open scheduling. With his loss in the quarter-finals to Swiss Stan Wawrinka, the defending champion thought it best just to say his quick goodbyes and be done with the event for this season.



Hewitt Thinks Federer’s Career Is Far From Over  

Over-30 former New York champions Lleyton Hewitt and Roger Federer go back a long way in the game. And despite exiting relatively early at the US Open, Hewitt has few doubts that his Swiss mate is far from done with a world-beating career which has produced a record 17 grand slam titles.


Robredo Was Overwhelmed by Nadal's Ball Control

Tommy Robredo admitted he felt the full force of Rafael Nadal's mighty game during his 6-0, 6-2, 6-2 quarter-final thrashing at the US Open. And after losing his eighth match without a win in that one-way series, the Spaniard could only marvel at the skills of his second-seeded compatriot.
