Williams Played In Open With A Bad Back

Serena Williams has revealed that she almost didn’t start her match due to a back injury in a 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 loss to Ana Ivanovic in the Australian Open fourth round. "I almost didn't play, but her, at least I'm proud that I tried the best I could these last couple of days," said the No. 1 who had never lost a set to the Serb.



Nadal Faults Umpire For Timely Time Violations

Eva Asderaki’s name is etched in tennis history as the umpire who had to weather the fiercest verbal onslaught ever known in a Grand Slam final when Serena Williams berated her decision-making at a crucial stage of the 2009 US Open. Rafael Nadal is too much of a gentleman to descend to such behavior but he too was less than pleased with the lady from Greece who handed him two time violations, the second at a critical moment in the third set.



Tomic To Miss Three Months After Hip Surgery

Australian Bernard Tomic will miss at least the next three months of ATP play as the 21-year-old undergoes surgery for a hip defect which doctors say he has carried unknowingly for a decade and which has surely affected his tennis.

Wawrinka Has Retired His Miniature Travel Companion

Stanislas Wawrinka has confirmed that the plastic Homer Simpson miniature which figured in many of his tweets in recent years, has been officially retired. In fact the television series cartoon action figure was essentially put out to pasture - likely in a drawer several seasons ago, with only his memories lingering on among Stan fans.


The Romance Of Davis Cup Is Fading For Some Players

Spanish Davis Cup captain Carlos Moya fears that the former iconic allure of the Davis Cup is fading among current players, with the former world number one calling the team event a sacrifice for competitors.
