Roddick Not Retiring Now; He Loves Tennis Too Much

Andy Roddick won't let a six-match loss streak determine his tennis future with the former No. 1 adamant that he's far from done in the game.

"I don't have certainty two, three years (view) down the road.  I'm not going to talk about that," said Roddick after his dismal grass start. "I don't think I'm going to set the precedent on giving (retirement) dates on a day to day basis, either."


Nadal Says There is Not Enough Time to Switch From Clay to Grass

Rafael Nadal is facing the toughest period of his tennis years as the king of clay makes the immediate switch to grass as Wimbledon approaches. Nadal, playing in Halle, Germany, in a field which also includes five-time winner Roger Federer, admitted his annual challenge always seems huge.

Nadal said he will be ready to step onto the grass with Wimbledon less than a fortnight away. "The only thing that I can say is that I will try my best as I do in every tournament that I play during all year.


Nestor and Raonic to Lead Canadian Olympic Tennis Contingent 

Tennis Canada announced  the four players nominated for selection to the Canadian Olympic Team for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Daniel Nestor (Toronto), Vasek Pospisil (Vancouver), Milos Raonic (Thornhill, Ontario) and Aleksandra Wozniak (Blainville, Quebec) will represent Canada in London. Raonic and Wozniak will play singles while Nestor and Pospisil will team up for doubles.


Mahut Not Wanting to Be Memorialized as Iron Man

Ask people what springs to mind at the mention of Nicolas Mahutís name, and most will tell you that he was the man that lost the longest match in history. Or, the one that came within the width of the net-tape of beating Andy Roddick to win the title here five years ago. 

With a 6-4, 6-7, 7-6 over the defending champion and top seed Andy Murray in the second round of the AEGON Championships at The Queenís Club on Wednesday, the Frenchman is determined to change the public perception of him.


Sweeting Signs to Play World TeamTennis for Sacramento
