An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Injured Isner and Stephens Out Of Hopman Cup

John Isner may be starting to repeat his nightmare scenario of a year ago when an injury at the Hopman Cup forced him from the Australian Open. And surprise Melbourne semi-finalist Sloane Stephens, his Hopman teammate,  is also suffering with injury hard luck after withdrawing form a meaningless group match in Perth against the Czech republic with left wrist pain.


Azarenka Hopes To Find The Zone In Australia

It’s very uncommon for the first tournament of the season to feature four women who has claimed the No.1 ranking to reach the semifinals, but that what occurred in Brisbane when current No. 1 Serena Williams and three other players who have reigned as queens of the sport made it to the final four.

Some players would rather have an easier field in trying to warm up for majors, but not Victoria Azarenka who says she prefers quality every time out. She’ll need it when she faces Williams in the final.


Murray Not Expecting Miracles In Melbourne

With just two ATP World Tour singles matches to his name after a three month absence enforced by back surgery, Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has categorically admitted it would be ‘unrealistic’ to expect to win the Australian Open with such limited opportunity to get acclimated to tennis competition at the highest level.


Henman Expects Good Performance From Murray In Melbourne

Tim Henman is one player backing Andy Murray to make a successful return to tennis after his September back surgery. And with the Scot now ready to polish his Australian Open training in Melbourne, former British great Henman believes the time is right for a Murray move on the ATP.



Coach Nadal Reveals Some Coaching Secrets

While every day seems to bring a new high profile coach to the upper echelon of the ATP World Tour, Toni Nadal remains a constant. And while his world no.1 nephew Rafael continues to look supreme at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha, the senior Nadal is in Brisbane, addressing Tennis Australia's seminar of 70 coaches.
