Britain’s LTA Is Hoping For A Surge In Tennis Interest From Murray’s Win

With Andy Murray finally a Grand Slam champion as well as an Olympic gold medalist, Britain’s tennis chief is hoping the success of the Scot will jump charge tennis in his home nation and turn around a decline in the number of adults actually getting onto court.

Lawn Tennis Association chief executive Roger Draper has been fighting a tough battle recently. Government funding for tennis was cut by Sport England in April due to disappointing participation figures. In total £530,000 was shorn following 25% in the number of British adults playing the sport since 2008.


The Search For ATP Number One Has Two Months To Go

Andy Murray may be basking in the glow of his first Grand Slam title after winning the US Open, but that doesn't mean the new world No. 3 considers that he's had the best season on the ATP.

"I don't think I have had the best year on the tour, no.  I think the last few months have been great for me, but, you know, there is more to the tennis tour than just the Grand Slams," said Murray after overcoming Novak Djokovic in five sets in New York.


Roddick’s Appearance Sold Tickets

The US Open got a modest boost from ticket sales as it hosted what turned out to be the Andy Roddick farewell event as the longtime American icon retired on his 30th birthday at the Grand Slam. Officials said that their ticket sales were up by 30 percent based on the "Roddick factor" alone.
