Danielle Collins def. Tennis Australia's switch to the Nine Network marks the first time in over 40 years that the sport isn't covered by Seven. The ticket provides access to all outdoor courts. Alcott earned a 2 victory over long-time rival David Wagner on Rod Laver Arena, to take his total Grand Slam singles titles haul to seven. The Aussie also won the quad wheelchair doubles title on Friday alongside Heath Davidson.
Federer's touching Murray tribute Joe Barton Roger Federer has delivered a touching tribute for his long-time rival Andy Murray, praising the Scot for his incredible fighting qualities — all of which were on show in his gutsy first round loss to Roberto Bautista-Agut on Monday night.
Within the rules, whatever he does, with his fighting spirit, with his tactics, with slicing, defense, attacking play, even serve and volley, chip and charge, he'll do it all.
He'll leave everything out there. I like that about him because I can't stand it when guys go into the match and they're just content, I do my thing, it doesn't work, so be it. He's not like that. He's a big guy to do that.
He's more from the modern generation, with Novak together, two guys that move like smaller guys. Carrying the weight of Britain on his shoulders for British tennis, that was not easy for him.
I think you could see that it wasn't always simple at times for him.
He gave it all he had after Novak's incredible start to the season. He had a sick finish. There's a lot to admire about Andy, how he went about it.
You know what I mean? He used to hate Tennis Australia.
And now he loves them. Wally was a great captain and someone that everyone liked. Tomic called for the Australian great to be stripped of the Davis Cup captaincy, and said he was a disliked figure among the players.
