In the 1990’s, tennis academies started popping up, like meerkats, all around the country.

Nick Kyrgios will get top billing in Arthur Ashe Stadium on Saturday night at the U.S. Open. Perhaps CBS officials called for even bigger names during the day, and they got them. Joining Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray in third-round action are familiar foes John Isner and Philipp Kohlschreiber.
Wearing his traditional all-black U.S. Open night outfit, Roger Federer rolled into the third round of the season's final major with a 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 defeat of Sam Groth on Friday. Federer out-aced the big-serving Australian nine to eight while prevailing in one hour and 48 minutes.
