Djokovic Want to Carry National Flag at Olympic Opening Ceremony

Given the numerous amount of honors bestowed upon Novak Djokovic for his tennis exploits in the last year, any other Serbian contender for the post of standard bearer at Augustís Olympic Games opening ceremony in London in just 49 days time would have conceded long ago.


Opportunities and Pressure on Djokovic

Fans can feel for No. 1 Novak Djokovic, who is looking to become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win four consecutive majors.

Last year Federer stopped Djokovicís 43-match run on clay in the French semis. But the Serbian has beaten the Swiss in five of their past six meetings.


Sharapova Showing Her Rehab Was Successful

While she's glad to be back atop the WTA for the first time in four years after reaching the French Open final, Maria Sharapova cannot forget the rehab battle she faced over two seasons due to a shoulder injury.

"It's a long road back, it's a long process," said the three-time champion at the majors. "It's a lot of days of frustration and uncertainty not knowing if you'll ever get there, not knowing how much you want it, not knowing whether it would be a moment like that for you again."
