Bryans Receive Persons Of The Year Honors

Bob Bryan and twin brother Mike received trophies from Daily Tennis News publisher Bob Larson Wednesday as they were recognized as Tennis News Persons Of The Year 2012.

In a brief ceremony on court at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California,  Larson cited the brothers for their extensive contributions to charitable events around the world throughout the year. 


Azarenka’s Physio Says Injury Is Very Slight 

Since joining Victoria Azarenka’s team as touring physiotherapist, Per Bastholt has been one of the busiest men on the WTA scene. And the Swede who not too long ago was  a staff member on the ATP World Tour maintains the Australian Open champion has suffered no tendon damage after being forced to withdraw for her title defense at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells because of pain in her right ankle.



Berdych Is One Of The Last Of Old School Czechs

Tomas Berdych says he’s part of the last generation of Czech players who had to go through hard times to make it on tour. Berdych was born in 1985, four year before the fall of the Berlin Wall and seven years before Czechoslovakia was split into two counties: the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic. Like most Eastern European countries after the Eastern Bloc dissolved, the Czech Republic struggled economically when transitioning from communism to capitalism, so Berdych didn't have it easy.



Wozniacki Can Sleep During Lulls

Managing long hours of waiting for a late-starting match is all part of player life at most events, with the Indian Wells Masters no exception. Caroline Wozniacki has become an expert at filling her time, with the former No. 1 big on sleeping whenever possible and at all hours.


Gulbis Is Now The “New Gulbis”

The win streak may be over for Ernests Gulbis after 13 straight following his defeat by Rafael Nadal at the Indian Wells Masters. But the Latvian qualifier who was formerly known more as a tennis playboy than a title contender is planning to carry on to Miami with his new, serious approach to his sport.
