An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Gasquet Defeats Ferrer For Spot To Play Nadal

Richard Gasquet has long been revered as aesthetically one of the finest tennis players of his generation. But the Frenchman’s durability to withstand big match pressure in Grand Slam events was open to doubt after repeatedly losing the big matches.


Top Players Say Federer Is Not Going Away From The Top Of The Heap

Roger Federer’s worst season in Grand Slams for more than a decade and the sight of him moving down the ATP World Tour rankings have led many to believe the once imperious Swiss is a spent force. But world no.1 Novak Djokovic and defending US Open champion Andy Murray both insist any such talk is both premature and foolhardy.



Pennetta Cried A Lot After Her Return

Flavia Pennetta, who returned from wrist surgery earlier this year, says the effort she put into returning to tour was worth it after her US Open run. Pennetta defeated fellow Italian Roberta Vinci to reach her first Grand Slam semifinal at 31.

"It's always up and down because I cannot find a way to be consistent all the time," she said. "But I was working hard, still working every day with my coach, with my physio, with the physical coach, and also with my psychologist, yeah. Was not easy, I can tell you. I cry a lot. But I love this sport. I would like to have a chance just to prove myself. I try my best. If I can come back, good. If not, I have a good career. I don't have to do nothing more. But I would like to try 100%, and I did it. Now the result, it's good."


Ferrer Gets US Open Sportsmanship Award

World No. 5 David Ferrer has received the second annual “US Open Sportsmanship Award,” presented to the male and female pro tennis players who best demonstrate excellence in sportsmanship throughout the Emirates Airline US Open Series and the US Open.  The award was presented to Ferrer Wednesday at the US Open by USTA Sportsmanship Selection Committee Chairman Todd Martin.



Murray Understands The Reason For Roofs At The US Open

Andy Murray is tempering his anticipation of someday playing under a moveable roof at the weather-prone US Open, reminding that the $550-million project to cover a couple of show courts will still only benefit a tiny group of mainly elite players.


Isner and Stephens Out Early In The US Open Will Get Back To Work In Asia

Sloane Stephens and John Isner, both who were uncooked out of the US Open, says they won't be taking it easy during the fall season.
