USTA To Cover Ashe Stadium And Build Two New
USTA announced that construction plans for their national tennis center
will be revealed Thursday morning at a press conference in Manhattan.
Those plans include a retractable roof for Arthur
Ashe Stadium, two new stadia, relocation of some tennis courts and a
viewing area of practice courts.
Oakes Responds To Fan Requests At Winston-Salem
Open tournament director Bill Oakes pulls no punches. Not only does he
run the North Carolina event and also was the tournament director at
Atlanta prior to that, and he also is a commentator on US Open radio. In
that role, it’s easy to hear that Oakes has opinions on a number of
issues and isn’t afraid to share them.
Sharapova and Connors Kick Off Coaching Partnership In Cincinnati
Sharapova and her new coach Jimmy Connors finally got a chance to test
out their new partnership this week in Cincinnati. The two began to work
together shortly after Wimbledon, when the Russian and her former coach
Thomas Hogstedt split. Sharapova injured her hip during the tournament
and was forced to pull out of both Stanford and Toronto, but she did
work with Connors at home in Los Angeles at that time.
Is Ready To Return To The Tour After Rest And A Win In Montreal
seven-week break was more than he might have wanted, but Rafael Nadal
cannot complain after lifting his 25th Masters 100 title with a
resounding win in Montreal at the weekend. "After Wimbledon I would have
liked to have two weeks less of rest. But I had it after losing in the
first round (to Belgian Steve Darcis who has not played since due to
injury)," he said.
Baker And Harrison
Lead The List Of US Open Wild Card Recipients

2013 USTA Boys’ 18s champion

American Tennis Needs Fish Now
tennis appears to need Mardy Fish like never before after the ignominy
of not having a solitary player ranked inside the ATP World Tour’s top
20 and being faced with the scenario of John Isner being the only
competitor from the United States seeded in the men’s singles at the
upcoming US Open.
