Australia has the greatest tennis history of grass court success in the world with iconic names figuring on the All England Clubís honor board such as Laver, Hoad, Sedgman, Cooper, Fraser, Emerson, Newcombe, Cash and most recently Lleyton Hewitt. But for the first time since 1938 the nation from Down Under doesnít have a player in Wimbledonís second round.

Newly elected ATP Player council member Gilles Simon is making waves even before taking office, calling out the concept of equal prize money for men and women.

The Wimbledon 11th seed said that he does not support the concept of equal pay based upon the tennis produced by WTA women. "I think that menís tennis is really ahead of womenís tennis at this stage,Ē he told French radio France Info. "Once more, the men spent surely twice as much time on court as the women at the French Open.

Olympic Happiness and Controversy

The Olympic teams were announced on Tuesday, with some players overjoyed that they were given wild cards and some upset that they didnít get their just do. Austrian Tamira Paszek, who just won Eastbourne, was not named as she did not fulfill her Olympic eligibility requirements. Australian Lleyton Hewitt was named in singles, but did not get the call in doubles.

" I am disappointed," Hewitt said. "I can't work that out for the life of me. I guess playing as much Davis Cup as you do doesn't count for everything."
