An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

The Last Women’s Event Of The Year Is Here And Williams Is The Favorite

Serena Williams is the overwhelming favorite to become the first player to successfully defend the TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships title since Justine Henin in 2007 but the world no.1 maintains she has been placed in the toughest group for round robin play throughout the week in Istanbul.



Federer Is Playing In Switzerland And Is Determined To Win

Roger Federer is ready to start making amends for his poor season and is determined to make a winning start at his home Swiss Indoors after winning the local trophy five times from nine finals.
