Wimbledon Announces Huge Prize Money Increase

This year the two Wimbledon singles champions will receive $2.4 million (£1.6 million), a 39% increase on 2012 but the biggest leap is for losers in the first three rounds of the singles competition with increases in excess of 62%. A player granted a wild card entry who then goes on to lose in the first round will depart London Sw19 with $35,859 (£23,500) in his pocket.


Nadal Ready To Play Wednesday In Barcelona

Rafael Nadal turns the page to the Barcelona Open as the Spaniard looks to the home clay to ease the pain of a weekend loss in Monte Carlo. A day after his defeat in the final in the principality to Novak Djokovic in straight sets, Nadal was focusing on his duties at the Real Club de Tenis, where he makes his second-round start on Wednesday.



Murray Stays In Monte Carlo To Train With Coach Lendl

Andy Murray has stayed behind at what is now a relatively quiet Monte Carlo Country Club to work for a few more days with coach Ivan Lendl to try and lift a sagging clay game, Murray was dropped from the world No. 2 ranking after his third-round loss last week against Stan Wawrinka in the principality.



New Digital Tennis Magazine, Tennis Journal, Launched

A new digital tennis magazine, Tennis Journal, has been launched by some of the sports’ foremost writers. Veteran tennis writers such as Matt Cronin, Doug Robson, Joel Drucker, Tom Tebbutt, Kamakshi Tandon and Richard Osborn have articles in the new issue. The magazine was launched partly as an attempt to rekindle long-form journalism in the sport, which is largely missing these days with the decline of the number of pages in print publications.
