For the last 30 years, dating back to the days of the Soviet Union and the Cold War, Shamil Tarpischev has not been a man to tangle with. The long standing head of the Russian Tennis Federation is well versed with the corridors of power in the Kremlin and has had the ear of men like Boris Yeltsin and Vladimir Putin. But he will now know not to demean the Williams sisters after a stinging rebuke and $25,000 maximum fine from the WTA.
Just a few weeks ago Andy Murray’s chances of qualifying for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals seemed minimal but a second title in the space of four weeks, winning the Erste Bank Open in Vienna, has boosted the Scot’s 2014 position to the extent he currently holds eighth place in the Race for London.
This is about as good as it gets when it comes to a pair of 500-point tournaments. Roger Federer will play in front of home fans as the No. 1 seed at the Swiss Indoors Basel, where Rafael Nadal’s comeback from a wrist injury and perseverance through appendicitis will continue.
This was pretty straightforward: Marin Cilic broke once in the middle of the first set, and again at the beginning of the second, and he was never broken. It's his fourth title of the year -- twice as many as he had ever won before even if you ignore the fact that one of them was the U. S. Open.
