An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Federer Facing End-Of-Season Problems

Roger Federer's end-of-season run of success a year ago which propelled his push back to the No. 1 ranking last summer, had it's start a year ago in his hometown of Basel, where he is playing this week to claim his sixth title from the last seven editions.

But the compressing of the calendar this season means there is no more one-week break between Paris and London, leaving Federer to decide only at the last minute if he will show up form next Monday at Paris Bercy.


London Openings Down To 2 Spots

The London year-end ATP field is theoretically down to two open spots after Tomas Berdych, qualified into the sixth position by virtue of his Stockholm Open title at the weekend. The Czech will be playing the eight-man season wrap for the third time, joining a short list which includes Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer.



Hewitt To Play in Melbourne Warm Up

Australian tennis stalwart Lleyton Hewitt heads the field at a decidedly low-key AAMI Classic as the eight-man special event in Melbourne prepares for its 25th edition.



Bryans To Finish Year At #1 For 8th Time

American brothers Bob and Mike Bryan have clinched the year-end No. 1 ATP Doubles Team Ranking for a record eighth time and for the fourth consecutive season.
