Nadal Withdraws From The US Open

Rafael Nadal will miss the US Open which starts a week from Monday after withdrawing from the final major of the season with his continuing knee tendonitis.

"I am very sad to announce that I am still not ready to play and have to withdraw from this year's US Open in NYC," said Nadal. "I'm sorry since I always found great crowds and great support."


Oudin, Mattek-Sands, Gibbs And Duval Get Wild Cards

The USTA announced the eight women who have been awarded women’s singles main draw wild card entries into the 2012 US Open Tennis Championships: Bethanie Mattek-Sands and 2009 US Open quarterfinalist Melanie Oudin, both members of the U.S. Fed Cup team, 2012 NCAA singles champion Nicole Gibbs, 2012 NCAA singles runner-up Mallory Burdette, USTA Girls’ 18s champion Victoria Duval, and Julia Cohen, along with Australia’s Casey Dellacqua and France’s Kristina Mladenovic.


Post Olympic Games Schedule Is Hard On Djokovic

Novak Djokovic has to stay alert to know if he's coming or going as the 2012 tennis season continues its frantic post-Olympic pace with the US Open start looming in less than a fortnight.

Now in Cincinnati, he often wonders just where he is on the globe at any given moment. "If you don't keep track of time and places where you are, it happens.  Sometimes you wake up and say, Okay, which time zone I am right now?," said the world NO. 2 behind Roger Federer.
