Federer Is Taking The Long View

At the age of 31, Roger Federer is taking the long view these days. He decided not to play any Australian Open warm-up tournaments, instead relaxing with his family, focusing on fitness and the little things he needs to improve that will make him a better player.



Monfils Hopes To Be Healthy To Play

The Frenchman who limped thorough the week in Auckland into a semi-final which he lost to German Tommy Haas, is concerned about trying to find fitness after knee injuries during much of 2012 and a sore hamstring which has been bothering him.


Stosur Knows She Is On An Upswing

After an embarrassing first round exit at last year’s Australian Open and two more initial defeats in this year’s warm up tournaments in Brisbane and Sydney, Samantha Stosur breathed a sigh of relief after surviving the potential minefield that awaited her on Rod Laver Arena.



After All That, Baker Made The Main Draw

Britain’s Australian Open qualifier Jamie Baker overcame not only a life-threatening blood condition but also a prolonged bout of depression before registering a place in the 128 strong main draw at Melbourne Park.
