Honeymoon: Serbian Tennis Hero Janko Tipsarevic to Battle France in Davis Cup Final - Live on Tennis Channel
O’s Janko Tipsarevic is ridiculously pumped. The Serbian Tennis Hero, who stunned the Czech Republic in an ultra electric Davis Cup semifinal match in front of an utterly raucous Serbian home crowd in September, is set to lead his country’s squad into battle in the Finals. The team will take the court once again in front of a decidedly partisan home crowd in Belgade. The opening match, sure to draw the eyes of tennis fans across the Globe, will pit Janko against French Tennis sensation Gael Monfils. In Janko’s trademark prescription Flak Jackets, that is. It all goes down at 5:00 a.m. Pacific on Dec. 3 – live on the Tennis Channel.
11th can be a good thing…if it means you went a perfect 11-0 in ATP Tour Level Finals, that is. Oakley’s Bob and Mike Bryan capped off their 11th tour-level title this past weekend at the Swiss Indoors at Basel (Switzerland), solidifying their year-end No. 1 ATP Doubles Team Ranking. The long-time O duo emerged victorious over the top team of Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic 6-3, 3-6, 10-3, besting their rival pair in their first match against one another since May.
Australian Sam Stosur played a little lose today, but the end result was as expected a cruiser into the 4th round with a 6-2, 6-3 win over Italy’s Sara Errani. This extends Stosur’s best-ever run at the US Open by pushing her into action this weekend.
