Del Potro Will Play Davis Cup Tie With Czech Republic

US Open quarter-finalist Juan Del Potro, nursing a problem left wrist, has decided to play through the pain in Argentina's Davis Cup World group semi-final against the Czech Republic at Burnos Aires. Delpo is counting on the support of fans in the stands at the clay date to see him through.



Lendl To Return To Competitive Tennis

Ivan Lendl, fresh from his success as coach to US Open champion Andy Murray, is returning to the competitive arena himself as a replacement for Jimmy Connors on four stops of the upcoming PowerShares Series alongside old foe John McEnroe.



Evert Believes Williams Has More Titles Ahead

With 18 Grand Slam singles titles to her name, Chris Evert stands equal second in the all-time list of Open era champions alongside Martina Navratilova with only Steffi Graf more successful. But she expects and hopes four placed Serena Williams will soon move higher up the list.

“If she can stay healthy and motivated, I can see her staying at the top level for two or three more years, and that could mean another five or six slams. She could get to 20 and maybe get close to Steffi who won 22.”
