Clijsters Loses in Key Biscayne, But She Still Has Her Eye on Majors and Olympics

Despite losing in the third round of the Miami Masters, Kim Clijsters is still excitedly pointing much of her tennis season at the summer London Olympics after missing her previous two chances at the Games.




Murray Promotes Tennis to Check Players’ Hearts

Andy Murray has been affected by the heart-scare drama which rocked the English Premier League soccer at the weekend when a well-known player, Fabrice Muamba, went down on field with a coronary problem which nearly cost him his life.

Only prompt intervention - two cardiac specialists came down from the stands - prevented a tragedy on the pitch. And Murray thinks that tennis needs to be aware of the danger which could strike even young, fit athletes like the 23-year-old footballer, now resting in a hospital.


Djokovic Looking Forward to Colorful Olympics Outfits

Novak Djokovic expects to be delighted by the temporary suspension of the traditional all-while attire rule when the Summer Olympic tennis event is held at Wimbledon in August.

"The first thing that comes on my mind is the color difference," said the Serb. "This is going to be interesting to see, because we all know that Wimbledon has a long tradition and history of all white on the court, dress code."


Raonic Injured in Key Biscayne, but Looking Forward to Monte Carlo

Milos Raonic will be ready for his next event in Monte Carlo from mid-April after withdrawing from his Miami Masters match with Andy Murray after rolling an ankle in practice.



Sharapova to Wear Red for Olympics

Maria Sharapova won't be wearing a white Nike dress at the London Olympics. Even though the Olympics will be held at Wimbledon, which still enforces a mostly all white rule, the All England club is not running the event so the Russian diva will have her choice of colors.

"When we were going over all the outfits for this year, it was just so strange to be going from Wimbledon and two weeks later going back to the grass and I'm wearing a red shirt," Sharapova said. "That will be quite unique."
