Blake To Retire In New York
one of the most noble, eloquent and at times hugely unfortunate tennis
careers, United States Davis Cup winner James Blake chose Day One of the
US Open to announce his retirement at the age of 33.
Isner Praises Roddick, The Last American Man To
Win A Major
Isner is not letting the pressure get to him on the tenth anniversary of
the last time a US man won a grand slam singles title.
Isner praised Roddick for carrying on the long US
winning tennis tradition of previous decades - which appears to have
ended for now. "Andy's legacy, he's a grand slam champion - not many
people can say that. He was the flag-bearer for American tennis for so
long, it seemed like 10 years. He did a lot for our sport. A lot of the
American guys currently playing today look up to him."
Kleybanova Is Focused On Getting Her Game Back.
top-20 player Alisa Kleybanova was overjoyed to have scored her first
Grand Slam victory since she was diagnosed with cancer back in the
summer of 2011. The Russian returned to Futures and Challengers play in
the spring and also compete in World TeamTennis for the Springfield
Lasers, but she just began WTA competition earlier this month
This Is A New Evans
chance saloon can be a pretty lucrative place as Daniel Evans, the
prodigal son of British tennis, is finding out at the US Open. Earlier
this year the Birmingham-based player was told the Lawn Tennis
Association would accept no more excuses for his insubordinate and
unprofessional behaviour but the warning was heeded and a shock first
round win against 11th seed Kei Nishikori and guaranteed at
least $53,000 in the bank.
Djokovic Addressed The United Nations
Djokovic stepped temporarily into the role of international goodwill
spokesman during a rare speech to the United Nations. The event took
place only hours before the ATP Heritage gala night honors 40 years of
world No. 1 players.
Connors Bemoans The Power Game Of Today
Connors has his criticisms about the modern game even after rubbing
shoulder with the current stars of tennis at the ATP's New York
celebration of 40 years of the rankings.
The opinionated 60-year-old who spent less than a
month this summer as coach of injured women's diva Maria Sharapova
characterized modern tennis to the New York Times as "a flat-out power
game, with the emphasis too much on just one stroke, the serve."
