Wozniacki at Ease Without No. 1

Now No. 4 Caroline Wozniacki seems to be relieved that she does not have to answer  questions in regards to being a Slam-less No. 1 anymore. Wozniacki, who spent 67 weeks in the top spot before losing it to new No. 1 Victoria Azarenka at the Australian Open, has spent the past couple of weeks training with her boyfriend, the golfer Rory McIlroy.

 

After Davis Cup Win, Hewitt Eyes Olympic Spot

After wrapping up a 3-0 swamping of China for Australia in Davis Cup zonal play, Lleyton Hewitt is starting to eye a possible place in the London Olympic tournament this summer after the 30-year-old and Chris Guccione completed the victory in doubles.

Now the pair who impressed captain Patrick Rafter are dreaming of a wild card to the Games. "We're not in the Olympics at the moment so it's not my first priority," said Hewitt, who also won his singles rubber to start the tie.

 

Evans Shines for British Davis Cup Victory

There are not too many Englishmen who have been ecstatically cheered as a hero by fans in Glasgow, that stronghold of Scottish fervor, but Daniel Evans achieved the feat after two dramatic and totally unexpected victories that handed Britain Davis Cup victory against the Slovak Republic.

 

Murray Shooting for Third Victory at Queen’s

Rafael Nadal has defected to the rival German tournament in Halle, Roger Federer might love Wimbledon but has never even played on Queen’s Club’s grass and Novak Djokovic is still fine-tuning his summer schedule but Andy Murray has committed to play the AEGON Championships in the build up to Wimbledon and intends to become the first British player in 87 years to win the title three times.
