Clijsters is Firm on This Her Final Wimbledon

Kim Clijsters won't back down from her vow that this will be her last Wimbledon, with the four-time major winner determined to give her all in her final appearance.




Roddick’s Ranking Jumps Due to His Win on Grass

Eastbourne grass-court champion Andy Roddick heads to Wimbledon with extra confidence after winning the final ATP-WTA tune-up event prior to the start of the Grand Slam. The three-time Wimbledon finalist was pleased with his defeat of holder Andreas Seppi of Italy 6-3, 6-2.

Roddick lifted his ranking from 33rd to 25th as he starts Wimbledon as the 30th seed.


Wozniacki Changes String Tension

Former No.1 Caroline Wozniacki is going to great lengths to try and add more power to her game, lowering her string tension from 25.5 kilograms to 21 kg. That's a pretty radical swing for a pro player, but her new coach, Thomas Johansson, has seen immediate results.



Federer is Eager to Win His Seventh Wimbledon Title

Roger Federer is primed for the start of Wimbledon as the record-holding 16-time Grand Slam champion begins his campaign for a seventh career trophy at the grass court major. The holder of the all-time record for majors could use a boost after winning his last Slam two and a half years ago at the Australian Open.

But after claiming four ATP trophies this season and posting another Roland Garros semi-final, the 30-year-old Swiss feels his game is exactly where he wants it to be. "My confidence is very good, I'm not lacking matches, I'm match fit," he said.


Murray Lashes Back at Recent Charges

Wimbledon fourth seed Andy Murray, again burdened with the national hopes for a British male champion at the All England Club after a 76 years wait from Fred Perry’s last triumph, has hit back in an angry manner at his growing band of critics who railed on him after his injury dramas at the recent French Open.

“I’m not accepting it anymore because it’s not fair,” said the fourth seed who is bidding to go further than the semi-final stage where he has been beaten three years in succession. “I think eight pain-killing injections in your back before the French Open justifies a genuine injury.
