Yahoo News - almost 3 years
Andy Murray will try to cap a milestone week with a third Miami Masters title after beating Czech Tomas Berdych 6-4, 6-4 on Friday to secure his final berth. Murray, who this week joined the elite club of players to win 500 career matches, booked his fourth trip to the championship match at Key Biscayne, where he'll face either world number one Novak Djokovic or American John Isner. Djokovic, who defeated Murray in the Australian Open final for his eighth Grand Slam crown, is trying to become the first player to sweep the Indian Wells and Miami Masters titles on three separate occasions. Djokovic owns a 6-2 career record over Isner, the big-serving American who powered past US Open runner-up Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals to become the first American man to reach Miami's final four since Mardy Fish in 2011.

10 Things To Know For The U.S. Open
Huffington Post - over 4 years
NEW YORK -- A look at 10 of the top topics at the U.S. Open, the hard-court Grand Slam tennis tournament that begins Monday and ends Sept. 9: 1. MURRAY'S FIRST DEFENSE: For the first time, Andy Murray will be the defending champion at a Grand Slam tournament – and he suspects he'll be more nervous than usual in the early rounds. Will be intriguing to see if that's true. His championship at the 2012 U.S. Open made him the first man from Britain to win a major title since Fred Perry in 1936. And last month, Murray ended Britain's 77-year wait for a male champion at Wimbledon. 2. RAFA RETURNS: Rafael Nadal has gone through all manner of ups and downs over the past two seasons, including a seven-month absence because of knee trouble – he missed two Grand Slam tournaments, including last year's U.S. Open – plus two more French Open titles and two quick exits at Wimbledon. He's looked terrific lately, improving to 15-0 on hard courts in 2013 by winning the Montreal and...

Yahoo News - over 4 years
Aug 21 (Reuters) - American Mardy Fish's hopes of putting aside his troublesome heart condition to compete in his first grand slam tournament in 12 months ended on Wednesday after the former top-ten player was forced to pull out of next week's U.S. Open.

On Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2013, All Out staff and members delivered a petition with more than 300,000 signatures to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), whose leaders agreed to receive the petition. The IOC is seeking written confirmation from high-level Russian officials that anti-gay laws will not impact the Games in Sochi.

Jesse Lawrence: How Much Will U.S. Open Tickets Cost If America Has to Wait 67 Years for Their Next Champ
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
While the Queen Mother did not attend Andy Murray's Wimbledon victory the weekend before last, the rumor is that she would knight Murray after he became the first British man in 77 years to win Wimbledon. The Queen has attended four Wimbledons in her life, but perhaps this year's 70,000 pound price tag was too much for Buckingham Palace to justify. The cheapest available ticket for the match was 4,400 pounds. To put this into context, this was 400 percent above the 2012 Olympic gold medal match Murray won on the same court last year and 300 percent higher than the most expensive ticket in the U.S. over the last 12 months (Super Bowl). With 77 years of national pride at stake, though, price did not matter much to those in attendance. The list of spectators included celebrities with plenty of money to afford tickets, including Pipa Middleton, Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones, and Victoria Beckham. Those lucky enough to witness it live saw the first British champion since Fred...

Roger Federer has delivered his first serve on Twitter. The 17-time Grand Slam winner joined Twitter on Thursday with a verified account. After just one tweet, he began racking up followers at a more prodigious pace than he has picked up Wimbledon titles. A little (blue) bird told me that the place to be is @twitter, so here I am! twitter.com/rogerfederer/s… — Roger Federer (@rogerfederer) May 23, 2013 While tennis fans previously relied on the tweets from @PseudoFed in order to glimpse into the #humble mind of the tennis great, they will now be able to go directly to the source. Federer picked up more than 60,000 followers in just a few hours. Meanwhile, his first five follows were @ATPWorldTour, @AustralianOpen, @usopen, @Wimbledon and @rolandgarros.

CBS Picks Basketball Over Tennis
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
College basketball fans who tuned in to CBS before the NCAA Tournament game between Michigan and Florida on Sunday afternoon were treated to the third set of a championship match between Andy Murray and David Ferrer at the Sony Open. Tennis fans absorbed by the cagey, three-set final, meanwhile, were out of luck when it came to the eventual tiebreak unless they also had Tennis Channel. As Murray and Ferrer battled -- and broke service -- on the sun-baked hard courts in Miami, the scheduled tip off of the Elite Eight game in the South Region approached. When Murray forced a winner-take-title tiebreak, CBS turned the Sony Open broadcast over to Tennis Channel and switched to its scheduled NCAA Tournament coverage. Prominent among those perturbed by the choice to cut away from the tiebreak was American tennis star Mardy Fish, who tweeted his displeasure. At the other end of the spectrum, former NFL player Shaun King seemed irked that CBS' NCAA pre-game coverag...
