An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Monday, December 10, 2012

Tennis Integrity Units Gets A New Chief

Jeff Rees, Director of Tennis Integrity Unit since its’ inception in September 2008, has retired and will be succeeded by Nigel Willerton, a former senior officer with the Metropolitan Police’s crack Flying Squad who spent 30 years with the British force investigating major crimes and complex criminal cases.



Leconte Is Concerned About Monfils’ Wellbeing

Just a year ago French tennis icon Henri Leconte was talking in humorous terms about the possibilities of coaching his compatriot Gael Monfils after he finished in the world’s top 20 for the fourth consecutive season and spent most of 2011 inside the top ten.

Now Leconte is deadly serious about Monfils, who is ranked a lowly 77th after missing four months of the 2012 schedule with a knee problem, and concerned the 26 year-old former junior world no.1 is contemplating retirement.


Brazil Venue Faces Infrastructure Problems For Events

The fans in Brazil have come out in great numbers to watch the Federer Gillette Tour, but apparently on Saturday at Ibirapuera Gymnasium, they were roasting watching a match between Victoria Azarenka and Serena Williams.

The Brazilian press reported that Federer had commented on the excessive heat in the gym, which does not have an air conditioning system. Brazilian player Thomaz Bellucci added: "It's a sauna in there, like a furnace.


Murray Promises To Clean Up His Act

Formerly foul-mouthed Andy Murray has sworn that he won't curse again on court as the US Open champion continues his long-term goal of taming a volatile temper. The Scot may be benefiting from a year under the stoic and unsmiling influence of uber-coach Ivan Lendl as he tries to solidify a No.3 position behind Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.
