An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Federer at Halle Acknowledges His Street-Naming Honor

Roger Federer will always be a part of Halle, Germany after the home of the Gerry Weber Open grass-court event officially dedicated a street leading to the stadium in his honor.

"Now I will practically always be here," said the five-time winner of the pre-Wimbledon event which - unlike its ATP rival this week at Queen's club London, has for years boasted a moveable roof to prevent washouts from bad weather.


Nadal On His Way to Halle and Roger Federer

Rafael Nadal has only hours to celebrate his history-making seventh title from eight French Open appearances, with the Spaniard due on Halle, Germany, to begin his pre-Wimbledon preparation in a field which includes rival Roger Federer.



Nestor Not Stopping at 40

Even though he will turn 40 in a few months, Canada's Daniel Nestor sees no reason to hang up his rackets anytime soon. Nestor and his partner Max Mirnyi repeated as Roland Garros doubles champion, stopping Bob and Mike Bryan from winning their record 12th major.

However, Nestor whose daughter is a toddler doesn't see himself playing until the age of 44.  While he and Mirnyi have seized the No. 1 ranking from the Bryans, eventually, he realizes that he will slow down. When asked whether he'll compete at the 2016 Olympics, he called it a "big stretch."


Nadal Loves Fishing, But the Timing Conflicts With Tennis Practice

Rafael Nadal may be the king of clay, but the French Open hero says he's just an amateur when it comes to his hobby of deep-sea fishing. The Mediterranean islander from Mallorca uses the recreational sport as a way to relax outside of tennis. But Nadal says he's anything but a pro with a deep-sea rod and reel in his hand.
