USTA To Honor Schwartz

The USTA announced it intends to honor USTA Past President Alan Schwartz to recognize his leadership, vision and expertise in making the USTA National Indoor Center a reality.  The ceremony will appropriately be held at the indoor center on the grounds of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis on September 6.



Top Players Are Concerned About Nadal’s Condition

Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have all expressed disappointment that rival Rafael Nadal won't be joining them in less than a fortnight to challenge for the US Open title, with the Spaniard out for an indefinite period due to his continuing knee tendinitis.



Evert To Be Honored At The Legends Ball

On Friday, September 7, the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum will gather hundreds of tennis enthusiasts and industry leaders at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City for The Legends Ball, an annual social event that celebrates tennis and honors some of the sport's greatest champions and contributors, including the International Tennis Hall of Fame Class of 2012 - Jennifer Capriati, Gustavo Kuerten, Manuel Orantes, Mike Davies, and Randy Snow. In addition to honoring the newest inductees, this year's event will salute Hall of Famer Chris Evert, who will be recognized for her years of dedication to tennis, and the positive impact she has made on the sport.


Djokovic Is Surviving A Tough Schedule

Unlike the rest of the top 5, at least through Thursday, Novak Djokovic has managed to play the Olympics, Toronto and Cincinnati without withdrawing from one of the events before they began, or getting hurt and then pulling out. Rafael Nadal has been out since Wimbledon and won't return until sometime after the US Open, Roger Federer skipped Toronto, Andy Murray pulled out before his second match In Toronto and David Ferrer skipped the Canadian event.

"I did consider the option, but right now I feel good, so after Toronto I felt also physically well," Djokovic said. "And even though [in Toronto] I had a lot of interruptions with rain and a lot of days where I, struggled physically, I am her now and feeling good."
