Bernard Tomic let his ranking slip so much that he is currently number 51 in the world rankings and the only way he could defend his only ATP Tour title in Sydney next month was to get a wildcard. Luckily the tournament organisers have done that and he will be back in Sydney to defend his title. Im not holding my breathe for him to achieve a back to back in Sydney.
Roger Federer admitted he had made serious errors in his planning for 2013 but insisted retirement is not on his agenda.
“I played matches that I should never have played,” said Federer.
“I should have left in Indian Wells (last March, with back pain) before the quarter-finals against (Rafael Nadal). This summer, I should not have tried to play on clay in Hamburg and in Gstaad.
“But things always look better in hindsight. I wasn’t able to train as I wanted during my seven-week break following Indian Wells. I fell into a negative spiral.”

This is a little weird. Maria Sharapova has posted a video to YouTube of her picking out a Porsche.

Venus Williams came out at the US Open 2013 with an amazing hair style, dress and ring. Here are the best pics.
What do you think of her outfit?
On Our Twitter we reported that Bernard Tomics’ Dad Didnt Receive any US Open Credentials. This doesnt really come as much of a shock to the tennis world. However, we wanted to pose the question:
Is It Time for Bernard Tomic to Find a New Coach or Additional Coach?
I know that Bernard wont want to sack his father (or his father wont let him). Thus, why doesnt Bernard just hire another coach to work with him specifically at tournaments where his father cant attend? Bernard needs help from the stands and this is only going to hinder his career.
Tennis Australia CEO Steve Wood has stepped down. Steve has been CEO of Tennis Australia for over a decade, but with poor results of late it was time to find something who could deliver better results.
Steve will be leaving the position officially at the end of September.
“These have been eight fantastic years leading a major professional sport that is my lifelong passion, but I have decided to take a break,” Wood said.
“Tennis has always been a huge part of my life. That will not change. But I am looking forward to continuing to make a contribution to the game from a different perspective in the future.”
TA president Steve Healy congratulated Wood on his creative and progressive leadership.
“He took on the role at a time of great uncertainty within the organisation and has led the company into a very strong position,” Healy said.
“He helped transition Tennis Australia into a professional and well-run commercial entity that generates substantial revenue to help drive the growth of the sport of tennis.
The lovely people over at Adidas were nice enough to send us some Adidas Barricade 8 shoes to test out. I remember when the Barricade shoe first came out and it was the shoes that everyone wanted, and it seems with the Barricade 8 it still have that same appeal.
Adidas consulted Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic about the Barricade 8. The Barricade 8 has a brand new upper, great new D-Core 6 technology (as good as shoe technology can be ) and it still provides great support and stability as the Barricade always has. I had to laugh a little when I read that the Barricade 8 was “inspired by the material of outdoor furniture” (Im not even sure how that is possible).
Overall the Barricade 8 is a shoe that I highly recommend for all levels of players. The Barricade 8 has great support and stability while being noticeably softer and more breathable. Additionally, it has a great design which provides maximum ankle support (VITAL in a tennis shoe). Plus it comes with a 6 month durability guarantee.
You can buy the Adidas Barricade 8 here on Amazon.
p.s. It’s also miCoach compatible.
