An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Friday, July 27, 2012

Olympic News

Men’s Singles

Ivo Karlovic (CRO) has withdrawn through injury, and is replaced by Philipp Petzschner (GER). Petzschner will face Lukas Lacko (SVK) in the first round.


Wimbledon’s Grass Courts Said to be Ready for Olympic Play

Since the All England Club was announced as the Olympic tennis venue for London 2012, one overriding question has continuously been asked; how will it be possible for the grass courts to be ready in the normally pristine condition with just three weeks recovery time following the Championships?

Head groundsman Eddie Seaward, who officially retires from the job on September 1, his appointed successor Neil Stubley and their 16-man full-time team should be the first medal winners of the Games.


Federer Wildly Popular at Olympic Games

While Novak Djokovic “only” attracted around 50 journalists to his press conference in London, Wimbledon champion Roger Federer attracted around 700.

Like most tennis players, Federer is housing himself in Wimbledon village because he does not want to do the 2 hour round trip drive to the Olympic village. Plus he could very well be swarmed there.


Low-Profile Djokovic is Ready to Challenge for the Gold Medal at The Olympic Games

World No. 2 Novak Djokovic has kept a low profile since being knocked from his top ATP spot by Roger Federer's recent Wimbledon title. But the Serb is fully ready to challenge for the gold medal he is dreaming of at the London Games.


Federer is One Happy Tennis Player

Roger Federer is understandably in a buoyant frame of mind. His 31st birthday is fast approaching but the Swiss is once more on top of the tennis world after reclaiming the world no.1 ranking with his seventh Wimbledon title and on the even of London 2012 and his quest for an Olympic gold medal at singles, he has not discounted the possibility of competing again at Rio de Janeiro in four years time.

"Rio 2016, who knows?'" said Federer who will also be aiming to retain his Olympic doubles title alongside Stanislaus Wawrinka in the next ten days. I think I'm a chance. The mind, the body, there are so many moving parts, but everything is really good.


Tunisian Player Hopes to Make A Mark

Tunisia’s Malwk Jaziri hopes to make the most of his Olympic wild card. The 28-year-old is the only player from an Arab country in the men's draw. "I represent all Arabic countries. I'm alone. . . just me in the top 100,” he told ESPN .com
