An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Djokovic Plays Through The Pain In Monte Carlo

World no.1 Novak Djokovic admitted he certainly felt pain in his suspect right ankle after taking the calculated risk of deciding to contest the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters just ten days after suffering what appeared a serious injury securing Serbia’s place in the Davis Cup semi-finals.



Murray Says Sometimes It Is The Receiver Who Delays Play

Andy Murray added his opinions to the ever growing debate on the umpiring of the time violation rule, maintaining the officials should be as diligent in monitoring the delaying tactics of the returning player and they have been with the server.



Britain Needs One More Fed Cup Player

Britain’s Fed Cup captain Judy Murray will not announce her decision on who gets the second singles spot in the World Group II play-off against Argentina in Buenos Aires until just before the start of play tomorrow (Friday) with Elena Baltacha poised for an unlikely return.


Djokovic Calls For Understanding In Speeding Up Play

Novak Djokovic is asking for a bit of understanding as the ATP attempts to speed up the game this season by coming down hard on time-wasting after the end of a point. Djokovic, making his return after an ankle injury with an opening win in Monte Carlo, got a time warning in his victory over Mikhail Youzhny but said that the chair official should have some leeway at his disposal.



Gasquet Says He’s Not A Media Target

Richard Gasquet has come under some criticism for not being able to play France’s Davis Cup tie against Argentina the week before last. Gasquet, who reached the semifinals of Miami the week prior, injured his right ankle and had to pull out of the tie just before it began.  Giles Simon substituted for Gasquet, but lost both of his matches and France went down 3-2 despite Jo Wilfried Tsonga winning both his contests. Argentina also won the doubles point.


Australia Might Have Trouble In Fed Cup Competition

Australia could be limited against Switzerland in their Fed Cup tie this weekend if former US Open winner Samantha Stosur cannot be fit from the calf injury which has bothered her for a month or more. The Aussie has not played for several weeks since quitting a match in the US with the problem and also missed last month's Miami event.
