Nadal Is In Chile Returning To The Tour

All eyes are on Rafael Nadal as the Spaniard steps onto court for the first time since late June to test his chronic knee injuries with a doubles match in Chile. Coach and uncle Toni Nadal believes his nephew has improved after four days of training since arriving.



Nadal Might Become A Fresh Target On Court

Rafael Nadal might easily become a fresh target for opponents as he returns to tennis after more than seven months away due to his lingering knee problems. Three-time Australian Open finalist Andy Murray believes that the one-time king of clay could well be vulnerable to rivals as he steps back into action over the next month at three smaller ATP events.


Lack Of Space Facing The Australian Open

Among other problems facing the Australian Open is a lack of space - on the venerable men's trophy.

Officials are worried that the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup is critically short of silver real estate, with room for only one name below that of 2013 champion Novak Djokovic.

The International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum and the International Tennis Federation (ITF) have presented the 2013 Golden Achievement Award to Geoff Pollard AM, the past-president and chairman of Tennis Australia and a current vice president of the ITF.
