Entries Announced for Beach Tennis World Championships

The ITF Beach Tennis World Championships are almost upon us with the tournament due to begin on Thursday June 21, 2012. This year the championships, which will run until Sunday June 24, 2012, are taking place at Burgas Beach in Bulgaria.

Both the men’s and women’s 2011 champions will be returning as they look to make successful defenses of their titles won in Rome. Alessandro Calbucci & Luca Meliconi and Simona Briganti & Laura Olivieri are both attempting to become the first pairing to not only retain the title but also the first two-time champions.


Fernandez and Berger Named US Olympic Coaches

Cibulkova Claims Stosur Plays Like a Man

Memories of Martina Hingis’ infamous and much criticized observation about Amelie Mauresmo being ‘half a man’ at the Australian Open 13 years ago resurfaced as vanquished Dominika Cibulkova insisted her French Open conqueror Samantha Stosur played with the same superiority.

Stosur, who stands under 5ft 8ins tall and weighs 143 pounds, was simply too strong for the Slovak who previously ousted world no.1 Victoria Azarenka. “She played like a man, and it's really hard to play against a man,” said 15th seeded Cibulkova. “It was driving me crazy on the court. It was really, really hard."


Del Potro Loses in Paris and Immediately Sets His Sights on London

Juan Del Potro is hoping to be fit enough to make his grass-court start at Queen's club next Monday after exiting the French Open clay to Roger Federer.

The No. 9 said that his first priority is to rest, but he is keen to be ready for the London start. "I would love to play Queen's, I'm supposed to play Queen's."
