An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

International Tennis Federation Bans Cycling/Tennis Doctor

The International Tennis Federation announced that it recognizes the lifetime ban imposed on Dr. Luis Garcia del Moral by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for various Anti-Doping Rule Violations.

Garcia del Moral has worked with tennis players Dinara Safina and Sara Errani, and he worked at Spain's TenisVal Academy beginning in 2006, where players such as David Ferrer, Igor Andreev, Maria Kirilenko, Pablo Andujar, Anabel Medina and Marat Safin have trained.


Haas Shoots Up To Top 25 On ATP Tour

Tommy Haas can't believe his fast-track progress back through the ranks of the ATP as the 34-year-old celebrates a return to the top 25. Haas has played three finals in five weeks on three different surfaces. He won on grass in Halle in June and made title bids on Hamburg clay and last weekend in Washington in steamy conditions on cement.



Nestor Received Honor From Canadian University

Canadian doubles king Daniel Nestor has dipped his toes into academia, with the 39-year-old receiving an honorary degree from a Toronto university during his home ATP event. As it turns out, the school is located just a few steps from the tournament venue, meaning little disruption to his training schedule.



Williams Dances a Gang Dance At Olympics

Olympic gold medalist Serena Williams may have gone briefly back to her roots in a deprived Los Angeles suburb as she celebrated her London Games success with what some have described as a "gangster walk" from the means streets of Compton.

The multi-millionaire player, whose father has recounted in the past how she and sister Venus had to train for their sport in the early days amid the street violence of the area, is making no apologies for her controversial rendition of the "Crip walk" used by a major LA gang.
