Roddick is Raring to Go in London

Fresh from picking up his second trophy of the year and 32nd of his career at Atlanta, Andy Roddick is back at one of his favorite venues and insistent that fatigue will not be a problem as he represents the United States in the Olympic Games tennis event at Wimbledon.




This Year, For the Olympics, It’s Good to be British

Britain appears to be experiencing the benefits of being the Olympic host nation as Heather Watson gained a late entry in the Women’s Singles draw because of the enforced withdrawal of Ukraine's Alona Bondarenko.

Now Laura Robson, Watson’s British partner in the Women’s Doubles who came close to reaching her first WTA final in Palermo earlier this month, is the next in line to be promoted into the draw should any other competitor be forced to withdraw due to injury.


Kafelnikov Finds Switching to Golf Isn’t Easy

Ivan Lendl found the transition from top flight tennis champion to touring golf professional to be a demanding process and now former world no.1 Yevgeny Kafelnikov is having a second attempt at successfully switching sporting codes.



Astronaut Ride Had Rich Tennis History

Astronaut Sally Ride, the  first American woman to enter space, had a rich tennis history. Ride, who passed away on Monday, was a standout junior in Southern California. She was  coached by the Hall of Famer Alice Marble and played at the Westlake School for Girls in Los Angeles. In college Ride competed for Swarthmore and Stanford, where she played No. 1 for two year and reached the quarterfinals of the International Intercollegiate Championships.



Williams Sisters Will Miss Some Events by Avoiding Traffic Problems

The William sisters will be sticking close to "home" during the London Olympics, likely meaning that the American pair could miss the opening ceremony located 20 kilometers away from their base at Wimbledon where they plan to spend the majority of their time.

The sisters have bowed to the inevitable and will not be risking any London traffic chaos during the Olympics, which start at the weekend. As a result, there is no confirmation that the high-profile pair will even attend Friday's opening ceremonies.


Denver is Hosting the National Public Parks Tennis Championships

Tennis players from ages 5 to 80, from beginners to advanced, are descending on Denver this week as the Mile High City hosts the 2012 National Public Parks Tennis Championships (NPPTC). Denver Parks and recreation has teamed up with the United States Tennis Association Colorado District, the Gates Tennis Center and the Daniels Fund for this exciting event.
