An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

ITF to Honor Sanchez Vicario

Spanish tennis star Arantxa Sanchez Vicario will be presented with the ITF’s highest accolade, the Philippe Chatrier Award, at the 2012 ITF World Champions Dinner on Tuesday 5 June in Paris at the Pavillon d’Armenonville. 




Wozniacki Wants Hawk-Eye at Paris

Former world no.1 Caroline Wozniacki added her indignant voice to the growing number of demands for ‘Hawk Eye’ line calling technology to be employed on the clay courts of the French Open.

Since computerized systems have become a fixture at the other three Grand Slam events, the French Tennis Federation have stuck with tradition and insisted umpires can cite marks on the clay when arbitration is required over a contentious line-call.


Federer Begins Second Week in Paris Very Calm

It's business as usual for Roger Federer as the Swiss begins the second week of the French Open with the 2009 champion feeling fit for another trophy run at Roland Garros.

"I'm very happy that I went through the first four rounds, because I may have thought that I was playing too different a game compared with my opponents, starting from the second round," said Federer. "Physically I feel well.  I'm not tired. I don't have any source of pain anywhere, so that's very positive."


Azarenka May End Arrangement With Coach Mauresmo

Victoria Azarenka’s early French Open exit may have brought an early end to her use of Amelie Mauresmo as coach and advisor.

“We haven't really decided anything yet,” said Azarenka when questioned on the future of her relationship with Mauresmo. Clearly the matter is on the agenda when the player assesses her fourth round demise with Sumyk and Meilen Tu, agent with Lagardere Unlimited. “I haven't even talked to them.  We'll see.”


Haas Leaves Roland Garros a Satisfied Man

Tommy Haas leaves Roland Garros well satisfied with his comeback to tennis after reaching the third round of the French Open. The 34-year-old LA-based German, a qualifier in Paris who stood second in the world a decade ago, wasn't able to get past Richard Gasquet, losing in four sets.



Sharapova Still Avoiding Twitter

Maria Sharapova may be a worldwide sport, fashion and marketing icon - but that doesn't mean the WTA number two is prepared to reveal every detail of her life on Twitter.

"I think it's too much for me. I mean, I'm bored with myself on a daily basis," said the three-time Grand Slam winner. "I think if I'm bored, like eating a bowl of pasta, I don't need to let the world know that I'm at this restaurant eating a bowl of pasta."
