Djokovic Rebuffs Suggestions To Ease Up And Goes Full Speed To End Season

Novak Djokovic refuted the suggestion that with the world no.1 ranking secure and next week’s Barclays ATP World Tour Finals looming very large on the horizon, he might be tempted to take things a little easy in this week’s BNP Paribas Masters at Paris’ Palais de Omnisports Bercy.



Kvitova Questionable For Fed Cup Finals

Top Czech player Petra Kvitova says she will try and play Fed Cup final against Serbia this coming weekend, but other than playing a one set exhibition against Maria Sharapova on Monday night that she had to drag herself out of bed to do, she has not played in a week due to virus.



Djokovic Has Had A Full Season, And He Finishes As Number One

Potentially Djokovic could play more than 90 matches this year if he reaches the Paris final on Sunday and then does the same at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals which start at London’s 02 Arena a day later. Djokovic commented : “I'm not the freshest guy on the tour right now because I have had a long year," he said.



Rasheed Has Advice For Tomic

Rasheed thinks Tomic should take break, move on from dad

Australian Davis Cup coach Roger Rasheed had been mentioned as a possible candidate to coach troubled Aussie youngster Bernard Tomic, but decided to take an offer from the more established Jo-Wilfried Tsonga instead.
