Murray’s Appearance at Queen’s is Uncertain

Chris Kermode, tournament director of the AEGON Championships which begin at London’s Queen’s Club on Monday will spend an anxious couple of days after Andy Murray, top seed, defending champion and main attraction, refused to guarantee his involvement after a physically demanding French Open.



Williams is Without a Mixed Doubles Partner for Wimbledon and The Olympics

Bob Bryan still has his hopes of playing Olympic mixed doubles with Serena Williams despite the high-profile pair losing in the first round of the event at the French Open.

The doubles ace accepted the invitation to play from the Serena camp through his own agent before the Roland Garros start and said he was considering the proposal something of a trial run for a possible London Games partnership.


Errani Credits Racquet, and the Power of Thinking

Sara Errani stands only 5-feet-4 inches tall, but she has proved in reaching the Roland Garros semifinals that height doesn’t matter as much as some might think.

"A big change for me really was the racquet," Errani said of her Babolat Pure Drive GT. "It makes me feel much better on the court, like I have more power and am not too different from the other players in terms of power and those things. But also physically I worked very hard in the winter - so maybe it's just a mix of everything that's helping right now."


Sharapova Admits to Being an International People Watcher

If she didn't have a full-time job as the highest-paid woman in sport, Maria Sharapova has her own dream of the perfect lifestyle .

The self-confessed people-watcher and French Open semi-finalist has dubbed Paris one of the best world cities for indulging in her not-so-secret passion. "It's the best here, so eclectic, but Tokyo is up there, too," said the Russian whose LA base is not too shabby either for unusual people spotting purposes.


Queen’s Announces Wild Cards

British players Jamie Baker, Oliver Golding and Liam Broady have been awarded the three remaining main draw wild cards into the AEGON Championships, which begins at The Queen’s Club on Monday.
