An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Noah Would Like To See 60 Anti-Doping Tests Per Year

Even though his comments of a year ago that he was suspicious of Spanish athletes doping caused a huge outcry, Yannick Noah has yet to back off his stance. While playing an exhibition in Brazil last week, Noah said he has nothing to apologize for and that he believes things are getting worse.



Bollettieri Thinks Watson Has What It Takes For Tour Success

Nick Bollettieri extolled the virtues of the latest of his graduates to succeed on the main tennis tours and insisted in time Heather Watson could follow in the footsteps of the likes of Monica Seles and Maria Sharapova by progressing to win Grand Slam titles.



del Potro Is In Vienna Hoping To Make ATP’s Final Eight

Erste Bank Open top seed Juan Martin del Potro kept his own altitude to a minimum while riding the largest Ferris wheel in Vienna a day after Austria's daredevil Felix Baumgartner set a world record with a leap from 40,000 meters above the earth, breaking the sound barrier in a freefall on the way down. 

But the big man has his own job to do this week at the Stadthalle as he tries to earn one of three remaining spots for the eight-man year-end event next month in London.


Murray Wants To Help Golding And Others Coming Up

Andy Murray isn’t simply intent on experiencing more Grand Slam glory after winning the US Open last month. He has long stated a desire to have other British players not just as company in the world’s top 100 but to provide stronger back-up in a Davis Cup team he is likely to rejoin next year.

So the added maturity and sense of responsibility the world no.3 insists has grown as a result of his New York triumph has resulted in an invitation to Oliver Golding, the leader of the British new wave of male players who followed in Murray’s footsteps by winning the same US Open junior trophy the Scot hoisted in 2004, to the notoriously brutal December training camp in Miami.
