Murray Wins Major British Honor

Fears that Andy Murray, Britain’s first Wimbledon male singles champion for 77 years, might have blown his opportunity of winning the nation’s most prestigious sports award by staying in Miami to continue his rehabilitation after back surgery were dispelled as he was voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year with a record proportion of the ballot.



Barty Wants Spot In Australian Open

With doubles partner Casey Dellacqua claiming an automatic spot in the Australian Open field with her finals victory at the weekend in the grand slam playoffs in Melbourne, Ash Barty is now keen to make sure she also takes a spot in the major.



Ljubicic Believe ATP Board Should Work Together

Former ATP Players Council president Ivan Ljubicic put a tremendous amount of time into politicking for the betterment of his sport during his long playing career, but he retired in April of 2013 and is now coaching world No. 11 Milos Raonic.

Ljubicic is not as involved in tour politics as much as he used to be, but still has strong opinions on where tennis was and where it is headed. He also served as an ATP Board of Directors member for short term. He was not impressed at his co- board members willingness to compromise.


Dokic Examines Her Future

Jelena Dokic will take a pause to ponder the viability of her tennis career at age 30 as she joins the commentary team for the Hopman Cup in Perth starting December 28. Dokic, currently without a ranking and a first-round loser at the Australian Open pre-qualifying event, has not played a professional match since late 2012 due to her continuing run of injuries, bad luck and illness.
