transformed the annual Indian Wells event in early March from a very
good tournament into one so supreme the BNP Paribas Open frankly leaves
some of the esteemed Grand Slam events in its’ wake, has been named Bob
Larson’s Tennis News’ Person Of the Year 2013.
Murray Loses In Doha And Heads To Melbourne
Looking For Good Practice Matches
Murray left the Middle East behind him this morning and boarded the 14
hours long flight to Melbourne knowing he had not gotten anywhere near
the level of match practice he was hoping before showing he was ready to
compete with the top players at the Australian Open.
Fast Brisbane Courts Please Power Players Headed
Into Australian Open
court speed at the Australian Open has yet to be tested but some ATP
players are saying that the court at Pat Rafter Arena at the Brisbane
International is playing as quick as any outdoor surface on tour.
Wozniacki And McIlroy Are Engaged
Wozniacki and boyfriend Rory McIlroy are set to create a tennis-golf
dynasty after announcing their engagement on New Year's Day via Twitter.
"Happy New Year everyone! Rory and I started 2014 with a bang! ... I
said YES," said former WTA number one Wozniacki. McIlroy chimed in with
a tweet of his own: "Happy New Year everyone! I have a feeling it's
going to be a great year!! My first victory of 2014 #shesaidyes!!"
Injury Withdrawals Increasing
day into the new year injuries were already starting to mount in tennis,
with two women's pull outs at the Brisbane International and two more on
the men's side of various pre-Australian Open tournaments.
Wimbledon finalist Sabine
Lisicki was unable to play her second-round match against Swiss
Stephanie Voegele, with the German suffering with a stomach virus. That
pull-out came after Aussie teenager Ash Barty was forced to withdraw
prior to a face-off with third seed Maria Sharapova.
