Sharapova Withdraws From US Open

After an eventful, and some would say bizarre, week in the life of Maria Sharapova came the sad news that the world no.3 and 2006 US Open champion has been forced to withdraw from this year’s event because of inflammation in her long problematical right shoulder.

 

 

Sharapova Rolls Back On Changing Her Name

Maria Sharapova has rolled back on her publicity effort to promote the one-year anniversary of the debut of her "Sugarpova" sweets line by legally changing her name for the upcoming US Open to Maria Sugarpova. But the wild scheme evidently met a bureaucratic fate, according to her handlers.

 

 

Iranian Official Not Allowed To Umpire At US Open

Iranian tennis official Adel Borghei has been banned from umpiring or acting as a line judge at the upcoming US Open because of the United States’ ongoing sanctions against his home country.

 

 

Three Tennis Industry Pioneers Elected Into Industry Hall of Fame

Three tennis industry leaders will be inducted into the Tennis Industry Hall of Fame this summer, in recognition of their outstanding accomplishments and significant impact on the tennis industry.

Howard R. Gill Jr., Walter Montenegro and Sheldon Westervelt will join five previous Tennis Industry Hall of Fame inductees, including tennis champion Billie Jean King and coaches Nick Bollettieri and Dennis Van der Meer.

 

McEnroe Doesn’t Like The State of The Doubles Game

The Bryan brothers are going for the Grand Slam at the US Open and have already clinched the year end No. 1 ranking, even though it’s only August. A lot of other top doubles players keep switching partners and it appears that the Bryans are now the only consistently popular doubles duo on tour.

“The Bryans are doing a great job trying to prop up doubles,” said McEnroe who will work as an analyst for ESPN as well as CBS during the US Open. “Without them it would be in even worse shape than it is.  They can only play who is in front of them."
