Federer Is Surprised To Get a Death Threat

Roger Federer is determined the death threat he was issued in the build up to the Shanghai Rolex Masters will not affect his determination to end 2012 as the world’s no.1 ranked male player for the sixth time in his career.

“Obviously it's been a different type of preparation and it's a little bit of a distraction - there's no doubt about it. You have to be aware of what's happening around about you but that is the case anywhere today with my fame and all that stuff. But it's been fine. I'm happy I'm here and I feel I'll have a good preparation to start on Wednesday or Thursday.”


Li Earns Final Singles Place At Istanbul

The WTA announced that China's Li Na has secured the eighth and final singles place at this year’s TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships, which will be staged at the Sinan Erdem Arena in Istanbul, Turkey.




IMG To Hold Big Tournament To Award A Wildcard To Another Tournament

The 2012 IMG Academy Futures Wildcard Tournament is being held Nov. 3-5. The winner of the event earns a wildcard into the main draw of the 2012 IMG Academy $10,000 Futures – a USTA Pro Circuit Event, to be held Nov. 13-18. The finalist will also earn a spot into the qualifying draw, November 9-12.


ATP Player Zhang Ze Would Like To Be China's Male Li Na

China's Zhang Ze may never win a Grand Slam like his countrywoman Li Na did, but given that mainland China has never produced a top-50 male player, the 22-year-old's run to the Beijing quarterfinals was something to get happy about.

Zhang made history when he became the first Chinese man ever to beat a top-20 player when he upset No. 14,  Richard Gasquet.
