Djokovic To Stay In New Jersey Home During US Open

Novak Djokovic will prepare for his US Open title defense in relative peace as he and his team set up camp in suburban New Jersey for the duration of the last Grand Slam of the season starting on Monday.

"We stay in New Jersey at a friend's place, so we're not spending a lot of time in the city," said the world No. 2 who reached the Cincinnati final at the weekend., "At the majors you really try to save as much energy as possible in order to perform your best on the court. That's the goal.  That's why we're there."


Tennis Channel Adds Courier To US Open Talent List

Tennis Channel is adding Hall of Famer Jim Courier to its on-air roster for its fourth US Open as its lead men's tennis analyst.

Courier, through a multiyear agreement with the network, joins fellow Hall of Famers Martina Navratilova and Tracy Austin as analysts, as well as sportscasting mainstays Bill Macatee and Ted Robinson. In 2011 Courier offered analysis during select first-week matches, marking his first appearance on the channel. This year his role is being expanded.


International Tennis Hall Of Fame To Offer Two Exhibitions At The US Open

The International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum will present a special exhibition at the US Open detailing the history of tennis in the Olympics and the Paralympics, from 1896 through the recent Games. Tennis and the Olympics showcases some of the most successful and interesting tennis Olympians in history, and highlights the appeal of tennis as one of the world's most international sports. The exhibition will feature dynamic photos of great moments in Olympic tennis and a full listing of every Olympic and Paralympic tennis medalist in history. Additionally, the exhibition will detail the interesting role that tennis has played in the Games, having gone from a full medal sport to having no presence for many years, and back to a full medal, extremely popular sport in the last several decades.
