Blake Insists Performance Enhancing Drugs Is Still A Major Problem

James Blake has long been regarded as one of the most erudite and intelligent of professional tennis players. So when the former U.S. Davis Cup player and world no.4 insists tennis doping is still a major issue in the sport, it is time for the powers that be to take notice.

“In tennis I’m sure there are guys who are doing it, getting away with it, and getting ahead of the testers,” said 32 year-old Blake. “But I also am realistic with this much money involved, $1.9 million for the winner of the US Open, people will try to find a way to get ahead.


After One Year Together, Lendl And Murray Are Going Strong

Ivan Lendl expects his coaching charge Andy Murray to flourish in 2013 following last month’s US Open triumph and insists the future for the Scot should hold several more Grand Slam titles.

Lendl was insistent: “I don’t see why Andy should not have another big year in 2013. But nothing is God given; it’s all about hard work."


Monfils Decides To End His Season Early

The continuing knee-injury problem of Gael Monfils has forced the Frenchman to end his season early after crashing out in the first round of the Stockholm Open. The No 47 who has had months of intermittent ATP play due to knee problems has finally packed it in for 2012.


Haas Won His 500th Career Match

Tommy Haas has fulfilled his 2012 tennis dreams, completing his personal hat-trick by winning his 500th career match in Vienna. The German hammered American Jesse Levine 6-4, 6-2 to insure his place in the record books 11 years after lifting the Vienna title.
