Roger Federer is Raring To Go

by JAMES HENRY

CINCINNATI – A year ago, Roger Federer was tired. He had just played five matches at the Masters 1000 tournament in Canada and wasn’t sure if he was even going to compete in Cincinnati.

Fortunately, he did. He won the title, for an incredible sixth time.

Venus Williams is back to her winning ways

by JAMES HENRY

CINCINNATI – Venus Williams is winning. And it sure feels good. 

“I didn’t realize I was going to be that excited when I won,” she said after defeating current U.S. Open champion Samantha Stosur to advance from the quarterfinals at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.

“I’d like to think that this is only the beginning for me of more semifinals. Of course, I’m going to stay focused and try to make it to a final match, as well. 

“So, for me, I’d like to take it a lot further. I haven’t played a lot since 2010, so this is awesome for me already.”

Williams, who won the U.S. Open in 2000 and 2001, withdrew from the second round of last year’s event, announcing she had been diagnosed with Sjögren’s syndrome, a disorder that causes fatigue and joint pain.

Now, the seven-time Grand Slam singles champion is back to her winning ways.

Players react to Rafael Nadal's Withdrawal from the U.S. Open

by JAMES HENRY

CINCINNATI – Rafael Nadal’s announcement that he will not compete at the U.S. Open was a big surprise – and disappointment – to players at the Western & Southern Open.

Novak Djokovic, who defeated Nadal for the U.S. Open title last year, said he wished a quick recovery for his rival.

“I really don’t know what the injury is and how serious it is. Obviously, it’s that serious that it takes him, you know, out from the tour for last couple of months,” Djokovic said.

“He’s a great competitor,” he added. “He’s somebody I know really well on and off the court. I’m sure that if he was able to perform in U.S. Open he would come.”

Andy Murray noted he likes Nadal a lot as a friend.

Novak Djokovic coping with expectation to win

by JAMES HENRY

CINCINNATI – Novak Djokovic knows what you say about him.

“I do keep track on what’s going on. I do see a lot of the things written about me,” he told reporters at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.

“I’ve, I think, over the years learned how to deal with the different kinds of pressure and expectations that are there as expected because you are one of the top tennis players in the world and people want to see you lifting all the trophies wherever you play.

“But pressure in a way is a challenge for all of us. You know, just knowing that I’m doing something that I really love and that I’ve done all my life, that’s enough for me.”
