Brisbane Officials Hope For Sharapova Appearance

Brisbane International tournament officials have good cause to wonder if Maria Sharapova will actually turn up for their event that begins in earnest next Monday on December 31. After all, the world no.2 has twice previously withdrawn from the calendar opening event and she cited a sore neck for pulling out of Saturday’s scheduled exhibition match against Caroline Wozniacki in Seoul.


Almagro – Not Federer-To Replace Nadal In Abu Dhabi

Organizers for the Mubadala World Tennis Championship this coming weekend in Abu Dhabi approached Roger Federer to replace the ill Rafael Nadal in the exhibition but the Swiss turned down the invitation.

Spaniard Nicolas Almagro will replace Nadal.


Kooyong Is Holding A Spot In The Field For Nadal, If He Wants To Play

The AAMI Classic at Kooyong Club is holding a spot in the eight-man exhibition field open for Rafael Nadal after the Spaniard was forced by ill health to give up on plans to play this week in Abu Dhabi. Nadal could conceivably be a late entry into the pre-Australian Open exho in Melbourne at the former home of the Open until the late 1980s.
