Tomic Gets Chewed Out by Davis Cup Captain Rafter

Bernard Tomic may have escaped censure from the Grand Slam Committee after his far from committed display against Andy Roddick at the US Open but the young Australian has earned a stinging rebuke from his Davis Cup captain Patrick Rafter.


Courier Believes Isner’s Early Loss Will Give Him Rest Before Davis Cup Tie

US captain Jim Courier says losing early at the US Open might be the best thing for the Davis Cup hopes of John Isner as the big man joins Sam Querrey in facing Spain on clay in next week's semi-finals in Spain.




Winning Gives Murray Big Appetite

Andy Murray has no hesitation in chowing down after a match, with the Scot anxious to replace the missing calories. After spending nearly four hours to reach the fourth round and 48 hours later polishing off Canadian Milos Raonic to reach the quarters, Murray was thinking of nothing but where his next meal was coming from.

The player who in the past was known for knocking back 30-40 sushi rolls admits he needs plenty of healthy fuel to perform: "I eat a lot of protein, meat, fish. I have like protein shakes I take after the match.  I try to get about 150 grams of protein in me, that helps repair the muscles. I need to eat a lot."


“Homeless” Johnson Likes The Professional Tour

American ATP newcomer Steven Johnson, a university tennis champion trying to make a start on the ATP, has joked that he is currently without a fixed abode as he tries to establish a presence on the professional circuit.

"I'm currently homeless, so it's an interesting situation," joked the No. 245. "I'm actually living with (fellow player) Brad Klahn.  We're finding a place at some point in the next few weeks before we go home."
