An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Fish Says He is Coming Along

Heart-scare American Mardy Fish says that he is slowly recovering confidence at Wimbledon after a medical procedure to correct a heartbeat gone wild. The 30-year-old American stressed that it is taking time for him to be fully at ease with his health even though doctors have given him the all-clear.



Odesnik is Eligible to Return to the Tour

Wayne Odesnik, the South African-born Floridian-based player whose two year ban for admitting possession of the banned human growth hormone (HGH) was halved by the International Tennis Federation, has strenuously denied he has agreed to deal to be a whistleblower on his fellow professionals.

The sentence was halved because the ITF’s disciplinary program states that part of an athlete’s ban can be suspended “where the participant has provided substantial assistance” in uncovering other offences.


British Fans are Delighted With the Performance of Heather Watson

Aside from the Wimbledon exploits of Andy Murray, most of the domestic British headlines are annually centered on the failings of home-grown players. But Heather Watson, the former US Open junior champion trained at Nick Bollettieri’s famed Florida academy, rewrote a little bit of British tennis history.

In reaching her first Grand Slam third round by virtue of a 6-1, 6-4 victory over American Jamie Lee Hampton, the 20 year-old Watson became the first British woman to make the last 32 here since Elena Baltacha ten years ago. The Channel Islands-born player also became the first Brit to defeat two top 100 players at the All England Club since Sam Smith in 1998.


Haas is Still Upset About High German Olympic Requirements

Former No. 2 Tommy Haas says he's hurt by a snub from German Olympic selectors which has resulted in him being cut out of any chance for a wild card entry into the London Games. With national authorities applying hugely strict selection rules, the 34-year-old who won the Halle grass title over Roger Federer this month was not nominated and was therefore not even in contention for a wild card.
