Bryan Brothers Continue to Make History

The Bryan brothers have made more tennis history at the US Opens, with their fourth title in New York pulling the pair level with the all-time best team in the game. Americans Bob and Mike defeated Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek 6-3, 6-4 to join John Newcombe and Tony Roche as the most successful pairing ever to play the sport. They passed the 11 titles of Aussies Mark Woodforde and Todd Woodbridge.


Federer Must Decide Soon If He Is To Play Davis Cup

Roger Federer may well be ready to ride to the rescue again for Switzerland when his nation plays this weekend to remain in the Davis Cup World group against the Netherlands.

Swiss captain Severing Luthi, one of Federer's coaches, named his best to the Swiss squad along with Stanslas Wawrinka, Marco Chiudinelli and Henri Laaksonen.


Berdych Unhappy With Playing Conditions In Loss To Murray

Disappointed Czech Tomas Berdych says his big game was blown away in the howling winds which plagued the US Open semi-final which he says should never have been staged in such atrocious conditions.

But as a veteran of the Open and its unorthodox scheduling as determined by the US television gods, the Czech has just one answer to the debacle which he lost in four sets and four hours to Andy Murray: "no one cares," he said of organisers.


Williams Wins Another In Her Home Grand Slam

Serena Williams can hardly believe how she concluded a superlative summer by winning the US Open for a fourth time, notching titles at her home Grand Slam over three different decades with a huge time span between the first at the latest.

"Three decades.  The '90s (1999), 2000s (2002) and 2010s, that's kinda cool," said the 30-year-old who will take a rest with only two more event scheduled after a torrid summer of winning performances. "I just think that it's exciting to have this opportunity.  And 13 years is a long time between the first and the last.  It's just a great."   


Djokovic Calls For Dropping Super Saturday

After being forced to win a weather-affected two-day match to finally book his place in the US Open final, Novak Djokovic has added his influential voice to those calling for the abolition of the outdated "Super Saturday"  scheduling which has led to half a decade of delayed Monday men's finals.

"If I'm not mistaken, this is the fifth Monday final here in US Open," said Djokovic. "I'm not so sure about this Super Saturday any more. I really hope that the tournament will consider changing things for next year."


Djokovic Expects To See A Highly Motivated Murray Today

Novak Djokovic fears that inspired opponent Andy Murray could be on the warpath as the Scot rides momentum from his Olympic gold medal to a possible first Grand Slam title when he faces the Serb in the delayed men's title match at the US Open.


Britons And Scotsmen Are Hoping For A Murray Win Today At The US Open

Andy Murray was guaranteed some VIP support from his fellow Scots in today’s US Open final against Novak Djokovic. Manchester United’s most successful manager Sir Alex Ferguson along with Sir Sean Connery, the former actor most famed for playing James Bond, were ready to lead the cheer leaders along with Murray’s  mother Judy.
