Djokovic Has A Successful First Match At Monte Carlo

Monte Carlo defending champion but Novak Djokovic wasn’t delayed too long reacquainting himself with the clay, taking only 45 minutes to beat Albert Montanes for the loss of just one game and extend his winning run to 13 matches.


Baltacha’ s Friends Are Rallying For Her

Elena Baltacha, the long-time British women’s no.1 revealed recently she had been diagnosed with liver cancer and now the world of tennis has again formed ranks to offer support and assistance with Andy Murray, Martina Navratilova and Tim Henman committing to star at exhibition matches in three of the nation's biggest tournaments this summer in a 'Rally For Bally'.


Roddick Is Not The Only One In The Family With A Temper

Andy Roddick always carried a reputation as an unforgiving tough customer on court during his ATP playing days, with the American's notable temper ready for explosion at almost any point. The sharp tongue of the one-time No. 1 and last American man to win a grand slam event  more than a decade ago was also feared far and wide.

With Roddick always ready to take a shot at media - especially after losses when he was often at his most bitter - it may come as a surprise than the ex-player's swimsuit model wife, Brooklyn Decker, has confessed to being even worse behaved on a tennis court than her spouse.,


French Open 2014 Increases Prize Money

French Open officials have increased the payout for players at this year's upcoming clay-court grand slam offering a prize package of 25 million euros ($34.5 million).

With his ultimate goal of winning an ASICS Easter bowl finally complete, 16-year-old Francis Tiafoe said his focus will now turn to the junior Grand Slam events in the coming months, including the French Open and Wimbledon.

Tiafoe joined No. 4-seeded CiCi Bellis of Atherton, Calif., as the big ITF 18s winners as the 47th annual event ended with rave reviews from players, parents and coaches being played for the first time at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, home site of the BNP Paribas Open.
