Sharapova Withdraws From US Open
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
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
Iranian Official Not Allowed To Umpire At US
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
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
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."
