Kleybanova And Myskina: Russian Fed Cuppers Must Ignore Pressure

Alisa Kleybanova is the only player on Russia’s Fed Cup team to reach the second week of Grand Slam, but although she once cracked the top 15 she is a long way from that form as she’s only six months into her comeback from Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.



Murray Won’t Play Australia Unless He Is Well

Andy Murray is insistent he will only play January’s Australian Open if he is fit enough to win the title.




Watson Almost Retired After Illness This Year

Britain’s Heather Watson has revealed she contemplated retiring from tennis at the age of 21 after her form disintegrated, her ranking plummeted and she struggled to win a solitary match after suffering a serious bout of glandular fever or mononucleosis earlier this year.



Raonic Almost Qualified For ATP Final Event

Milos Raonic had a near-miss with tennis history but was unable to capitalize on his chance of becoming the first Canadian to play in the year-end ATP event in singles. The 22-year-old lost for the first time in three matches to Tomas Berdych - the Czech has already qualified for next week's World Tour Finals in London - and therefore missed out on the chance to punch his ticket to the season wrap-up.
