Federer Wins in Madrid With a Lot of Confidence Through French Open

After his battle to beat Milos Raonic in a Madrid opening match, Roger Federer is focusing strictly on survival in Spain, with four matches to play in four days for anyone hoping to become Sunday's champion at the Masters 1000 played on blue clay.



USTA National Senior Women’s Hard Court Championships to be Held in La Jolla

The La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club will host the USTA National Senior Women’s Hard Court Tennis Championships on Monday, May 14, through Sunday, May 20.

Events will include both singles and doubles in the 50 and over, 60 and over, 70 and over, 80 and over, and 90 and over age groups.


Oudin Revives Under USTA Support

Melanie Oudin has been to hell and back since reaching the quarterfinals of the 2009 US Open, but after a solid six week streak, the 20-year-old managed to earn the USTA Roland Garros wild card by grabbing the most points in two out of the last three USTA Challengers.

Oudin, who had suffered 13 first-round losses in 2011 and five straight at the start of 2012, credited USTA Player Development for much of her progress. She split with longtime coach Brian DeVillers in September and eventually moved to New York to work with USTA coaches at the USTA Training Center-East at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.


USTA to Hold Casting Call for US Open

Winners will perform “America the Beautiful” live at Arthur Ashe Stadium during night sessions of this year’s US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
