Here is some news from the past week in Tennis. Their isn't any play going on but that doesn't mean their is nothing to talk about. So here is some stuff you might wanna catch up on.
Roger Federer has released his playing schedule for 2008. He is taking it a little easier than in the past, but whatever is best for him. I personally wish he would play some more clay events, so he can have more oppurtunities at beating Rafa, but, maybe this will give him a better shot at the French.

After a little controversy, although I always thought that the All England Club would prevail, Wimbledon has bought back the All England Club, and the Wimbledon organizers sure don't want to be dealing with this again anytime soon, because the agreement will last until 2053. Looks like Wimbledon will be at the AEC for the next 45 years. For details.......http://www.tennischannel.com/news/NewsDetails.aspx?newsid=4800
The ATP seems to be inching closer and closer to finally finding a decent replacement for Etienne de Villiers. The short list looks like it is Brad Drewett, leader of the international group for the ATP and Marc Young, head of the American ATP group.
Serena Williams' hamstring injury still seems to be bothering her. She withdrew from the Hopman Cup, Jan. 3rd, and will be replacved by Meghann Shaughnessy. Quite a drop.......#2 to #837. Let's hope that James Blake and Shaughnessy can bring a 2nd straight title to the U.S.
