Andre Agassi And Jim Courier Are Now Friends
junior rivals Andre Agassi and Jim Courier have come a long way from
their younger days on the pro tour, when they didn't even speak.
Both men trained at the Nick Bollettieri Academy
and Courier admits that there were times that he was jealous of the
attention that Agassi was getting.
Asks For Clarity In Drug Action
Marin Cilic made winning comeback to ATP World Tour action after a
shortened ban for breaking anti-doping regulations, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
made an impassioned plea at the BNP Paribas Paris Masters for added
clarity on the most talked about issue in tennis.
Nadal Says Number One Ranking Not A Big Thing For Federer Or Him
Nadal believes that for himself and Roger Federer, gaining or holding
the No. 1 ranking is old news at this stage in their storied careers.
The No. 1 Spaniard made his return to the Paris Masters after a
four-year absence and said that his only worry is feeling healthy.
Cilic Puts Aside Any
Cilic will be considering his participation in this week's Paris Masters
as "gift of the year" after suspension of his sanctions for testing
positive for a banned substance. The Croatian, now ranked 47th after
last playing at Wimbledon when the controversy broke over a positive
test for the stimulant nikethamide, will open with a qualifier at the
Bercy arena in the first round.
Bouchard Climbing Up The Rankings
Genie Bouchard has made a huge leap in the past year, climbing 115
ranking spots to No 32, which could have her seeded at a slam. The
19-year-old Canadian had a strong fall season, reaching the semis of
Quebec City, upending Sloane Stephens and Jelena Jankovic to reach the
quarters of Tokyo, qualifying and winning match in Beijing and then
reaching the final of Osaka.
Tsonga Had A Chance For
Tsonga became the first of the major competitors to exit the race for
the World Tour Finals after trying and failing to play on a wounded knee
at the Paris Masters. The Frenchman was beaten in a first-round comeback
at the Paris Masters by Japan's Kei Nishikori and will now have a month
or more to get his dodgy knee into shape for 2014.
