Bryans Miss Chance for 2013
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
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'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

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.
Federer’s Career Is Far From Over

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
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
Midtown Athletic Club, Weston, Florida, is seeking
a General Manager. 954 384 2582.
