An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Nadal Likes The Way He Feels Now

For more years than he cares to remember, playing tennis has equated to pain for world no.1 Rafael Nadal. However a slight modification to the off-season treatment he received in Barcelona after returning from an exhibition tour of South America has made a major improvement on the knee condition many feared might end his career a year ago.


Murray Is Returning To The World Of Competition With Caution And Confidence

Today at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open, Andy Murray is due to play his first singles match on the ATP World Tour since losing his US Open title last September and the world no.4 is more than happy with the way his body, and most pertinently his back, has reacted to a couple of exhibition outings and an exacting doubles workout in Doha alongside Nenad Zimonjic.



Mother Dellacqua Is Content And Progressing

Just after Alicia Molik became the show stopper at the Australian Open and before Jelena Dokic wowed the crowds at Rod Laver Arena, the quiet lefthander Casey Dellacqua raised the roof, coming out of nowhere in 2008 to reach the fourth round, upsetting No. 15 Patty Schnyder and No. 1 Amelie Mauresmo before going down to No. 3 Jelena Jankovic.

Dellacqua has had an up and down career since then, somewhat due to debilitating injuries, but she regained confidence in 2013 on the doubles court when she and her teenage partner Ashleigh Barty reached three Grand Slam finals.


Azarenka Vows To Eliminate Medical Time Outs

Victoria Azarenka is vowing to eliminate her medical time outs as she bids for the first women's title hat-trick at the Australian Open since Martina Hingis 1997-1999. The sometimes-controversial Belarus player hopes she can play fit in 2014 and not resort to the injury pauses which called into question her concept of fair play in Melbourne a year ago.
