Possible Second Thoughts for Bartoli
Marion Bartoli announced her retirement from tennis just 40 days after
winning the Wimbledon ladies singles title, there was a widespread
belief that it would only be temporary and the Frenchwoman would return
to the game in time to defend her title next year.
Nadal: Playing More Aggressive Means You Are
Nadal was pleased to hear that Novak Djokovic had high praise for this
recent play but said that the while the Serbian’s analysis that his hard
court success is coming from being more aggressive has some merit, the
Spaniard believes that being in good form trumps style. Nadal who is
coming off of back to back titles in Montreal and Cincinnati, is
considered by many to be the US Open favorite.
Murray Says No Extra Pressure On Him As He
Defends A Major
Murray insists he can't feel much extra pressure as he heads into his
Wednesday title defense start of the first grand slam title of his
career. "I think there is less pressure. I think before the first
match and probably anything before the first match there will be nerves
there," said the Scot in the run-up to Flushing Meadows. "I expect to be
pretty nervous because it's a new experience and it's different.
New Security Measures At US Open
USTA announced that new security measures have been added to the 2013 US
Open. Guests will need to proceed through magnometers upon entering the
grounds of the USTA Billie Jean King National Center. Fans should
anticipate slight delays upon entering the grounds. Once on the grounds,
security procedures will remain the same as previous years for entry to
all stadiums, buildings and outer courts.
Melzer Credits New Coach Blanco For Tour Success
Jurgen Melzer has kick-started his tennis with perfect timing as he
heads to the US Open with a fifth career title in hand after winning the
Winston-Salem Open when Gael Monfils had to retire with an abdominal
muscle injury which prevented him from serving. The title marked only a
month into the new coaching relationship with Spaniard Blanco, who until
May worked with Milos Raonic.
Ex-Coach Sanchez Tells Murray To Fight For The
Number One Ranking
Murray's ex-mentor Emilio Sanchez, who ran the Barcelona academy where
the once-scrawny Scot learned the game after transferring from the chill
of his native Scotland as a teenager - is urging the US Open champion to
fight for the No. 1 ranking.
Nicklaus Is More Interested In Tennis Than Golf Now
if golfing legend Jack Nicklaus ended up playing tennis instead of
devoting his career to draining long putts? Would he have 18 Grand Slam
titles playing with yellow balls rather than white ones?
“As a kid I played a
little bit- not much- my dad was a good tennis player,” Nicklaus told
CNN’s Open Court. “He was the city tennis champion in Columbus when we
grew up in Ohio but he didn't play a lot of tennis at that point in his
life but as a kid he introduced me to every sport so he taught me just
enough about tennis to make me dangerous. So I start hitting around
playing tennis and fooling around and I would have an odd guy here and
we would start playing a bit and then pretty soon I got interested and
played a little bit more and that was just about the time I started
combining Wimbledon and the British Open and I came over and I watched
John Newcombe win it [in the UK].”
