Dubai Sees Another Controversy Between Murray and Berdych

Controversy seems to dog recent confrontations between Andy Murray and Tomas Berdych. The latest reason for argument blew up just before the world no.4 moved through to the semi-final of the Dubai Duty Free Championships and both players called for a review to the ATP World Tour rulebook.

 

Federer’s Mind is on The Here and Now, But The Olympics is Present Too

Roger Federer could not be happier with his current game as the former dominator of the sport quietly works to regain the No. 1 ranking he lost several seasons ago to rivals Rafael Nadal followed Novak Djokovic.

"I once said that London should not be the end. And why should I exclude Rio (2016), the world No. 3 told tennisnet.com. "I'd be just 35, and quite a few other players have accomplished amazing achievements at that age.

 

Indian Wells’ Wildcards Are Announced

David Nalbandian; Sam Querrey, Jack Sock, Denis Kudla, Robby Ginepri, Irina Falconi, Sloane Stephens, Jamie Hampton, Coco Vandeweghe, Lauren Davis and Jill Craybas; and Sania Mirza and Urszula Radwanska were granted wildcards into the main draws of the BNP Paribas Open, to be held March 5-18 at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.
