An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Nadal Has A List Of Australian Open Injuries

The pre-match back problem which ended any chances for Rafael Nadal in his losing Australian Open final against Stanislas Wawrinka was only the latest in a run of injury problems at the tournament for the Spaniard.

While good fortune seems to smile on the 27-year-old at the French Open where he owns eight titles and has lost only one match, it's much the opposite at Melbourne Park.


Nadal’s Coach Says Nadal’s Melbourne Problem Is Not Serious

Rafael Nadal won't need long to heal the back injury which struck during his Australian Open finals loss to Stan Wawrinka, with the Spaniard's coach Toni Nadal telling private radio that the problem is not something serious.




WTA Makes It Official; We Are Going to Singapore

With Li Na crowned the Australian Open champion, underlining the importance of Asia in women’s tennis, the WTA have chosen to make a formal announcement that the year ending Tour Championships, a moveable competition that has just spent three years in Istanbul, will be moving to Singapore later this year.



Sampras Says The Right Person Won

Stanislas Wawrinka's Australian Open stirred painful memories for the champion of 20 years previously and guest of honor, Pete Sampras. But it still didn’t dent the former world no.1’s admiration for the new title holder.

Wawrinka’s victory made him the first man to defeat the top two seeds at a Grand Slam since Sergi Bruguera Sampras in the French Open quarter-finals and second seed Jim Courier in the final at the 1993 French Open.


Now Courier Changes Hats From Interviewer To Davis Cup Captain

Jim Courier has spent the last fortnight forefront in the public perception at the Australian Open, spearheading the Channel 7 television commentary team and tasked with brandishing the on-court microphone to ask the victorious protagonists to share their innermost secrets with the watching millions.

Courier’s Australian labors are just gravy, in his parlance. His serious job is restoring the United States’ Davis Cup team to a position of some eminence while the individual fortunes of its’ players was less than glorious in the year’s initial Grand Slam event.
