Blake Overjoyed To Be Playing At The Open

After scoring a first round victory at the US Open, 32-year-old James Blake -- who says he’s being chided with good natured old man jokes in the locker room -- says that he still surprised that he made it as a pro. Blake once reached No. 4 in the rankings and went up against Andre Agassi in an epic five set loss in the quarterfinals of the 2005 US Open in contest that is still replayed during rain breaks.



Djokovic Says American Tennis Is Not Where It Was

Novak Djokovic has plenty of worries on his mind as he heads into his first title defense at the US Open - but the perilous state of American tennis is not one of the topics giving him any sleepless nights.

"USA is a huge country, one of the most influential countries in the world, and I'm sure that tennis tradition is something that is nurtured over the years," said Serbian world number two Djokovic. "I'm sure that the new wave of success in tennis, men's tennis, for United States is coming," said the man who led Serbia's breakthrough a few seasons ago.


Robson's New Coach Thinks She Can Play With The Top Players

Britain’s 18 year-old Olympic silver medalist Laura Robson will play Kim Clijsters in the second round of the US Open and the youngster’s new coach Zeljko Krajan sees no reason why his new charge cannot soon be vying regularly with the very top players.



Comcast Wins Stay In FCC Tennis Channel Decision

Just two weeks before Comcast was going to move Tennis Channel to a more basic tier that would have made it available in 18 million more homes, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit granted Comcast's request for a stay of the Federal Communications Commission order mandating distribution of the Tennis Channel on its cable systems while its appeal is pending.
