Del Potro May Change His
Mind About Playing Davis Cup
Del Potro may roll back his vow to skip Davis Cup for the second
straight season, with the Argentine world No. 5 conceding that he might
take a fresh look at the matter in time for the April quarter-finals. He
will not participate in the first round tie at home in February the week
after the end of the Australian Open, but might be willing to return to
the team afterwards.
Oudin Not Sure When She Can Return
Oudin’s career could be in trouble. The 2009 US Open quarterfinalist
recently revealed that she is suffering from rhabdomyolysis, which might
be caused by too much exertion and can lead to extensive kidney damage.
Oudin is now sidelined and thinks she might have over trained when
putting in sometimes more than six hours a day on court and off.
Doctors have limited her to one hour a day of
running, but she isn't allowed to play tennis or lift weights.

coming out on top with an impressive display that suggested he could

Hewitt Honored As
Australia’s Best Of The Year But Dokic Is Watching For Next Year
Hewitt won Australia’s top tennis award, the Newcombe Medal for his
perseverance and refusal to bow to injury but if the ceremony were to be
held just a couple of months later, there is now a distinct chance
Jelena Dokic would have merited a special mention for the same
Rusedski Urges Murray To Set His Goal To Be Number One
British player and current television pundit Greg Rusedski has made big
plans - in his own head - for compatriot Andy Murray, with the
Canadian-born former US Open finalist suggesting that Murray make it his
goal to take over the No. 1 ranking someday. That thought might have
also entered Murray's mind as the Scot recovers his fitness in Florida
after September back surgery.
