An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Despite Rome Loss, Nadal Heads For Paris Full Of Confidence

Rafael Nadal is taking full confidence into the weekend start of the French Open despite coming up short in the Rome final to heated rival Novak Djokovic 4-6, 6-3, 6-3. Nadal, who suffered a third season loss on the clay for the first time since 2004, takes an 18-3 record to Roland Garros, where he will wipe the slate clean as he starts afresh in the quest for a ninth trophy in his personal playground of Court Chatrier.


While Having The Rome Title, Djokovic Worries About Floods in Serbia

Novak Djokovic has made no secret of the fact his overwhelming tennis desire in 2014 is to finally wrestle the French Open title from Rafael Nadal’s grip and he claimed a massive psychological advantage in the battle by beating the Spaniard to win the Internazionale BNL d’Italia title in Rome.

''It's been a very emotional week for me,'' said Djokovic. “This is a total catastrophe of biblical proportions. Half of the country is in danger of not having any electricity, we're talking about whole cities, not villages, that are being evacuated."


Remembering The Good Old Days, Ivanovic Heads To Rome

Ana Ivanovic will head to the scene of her biggest career triumph - the French Open where she won the 2008 title and achieved the WTA No., 1 ranking - with some of the same feelings of confidence that helped her to the top six years ago.


Young British Player Needs A Good Coach

The projected coaching link up between former British no.1 Greg Rusedski and the nation’s most promising young player Kyle Edmund has failed to materialize and now Andy Murray has urged the 19 year-old to find the right mentor as soon as possible.


Murray Says His Back Is Good And Bring On Paris

The match may have been a golden opportunity for Murray to finally get a clay win over Nadal; instead he is 0-5 in that category and trails the Spaniard 18-5 overall. "This doesn't change my confidence too much because I felt like I have started playing better for a couple of weeks," said last week's Madrid quarter-finalist.


From Now On, It’s “Stan” Wawrinka

It took some months but with his game now well-known in the sport, his name was soon to follow. It seems that Stanislas Wawrinka has officially asked the ATP to refer to him now as "Stan," the name he was tagged with as he started to make his way up the ranks of the ATP.
