San Diego Aviators win first Mylan World TeamTennis championship

(NEW YORK, August 26, 2016) – The San Diego Aviators defeated the Orange County Breakers 25-14 to win their first Mylan World TeamTennis championship on Friday in the Mylan WTT Finals presented by Citi at historic Forest Hills Stadium at The West Side Tennis Club.

 

Darija Jurak (doubles, mixed doubles), Shelby Rogers (women’s singles, doubles) and Raven Klaasen (doubles, mixed doubles) each won two events to lead the top-seeded Aviators.

However it may have been Ryan Harrison who had the most impressive feat of the day. For Harrison, the league’s Male MVP, it was a double victory, as he also qualified for the US Open earlier in the day, dismissing Henri Laaksonen to earn a spot in the main draw. He then made the short drive across the borough of Queens to contribute to Coach John Lloyd’s team in winning the King Trophy.

 

“You’re trying not to get ahead of yourself,” said Harrison of his unique morning-afternoon twin-bill. “You’re focusing completely on your match, but in the back of your mind you’d like to win quickly. I tried to focus in on my service games, get ahead and put them away.”

 

Klaasen, ranked No. 10 in doubles on the ATP World Tour, was named the Mylan WTT Finals MVP presented by Forevermark for his performance. Klaasen, who was presented with a Forevermark diamond after the match, teamed up with Jurak and Harrison to post a pair of 5-2 wins in mixed doubles and men’s doubles.

 

“It feels really nice to get the MVP award but it feels a bit undeserving because our whole team played very well,” said Klaasen who credited team chemistry with their success. “We were apart for four days and when we saw each other again last night, it felt like we had been apart for a year. Our team chemistry has been great. We will friends for the rest of our lives.”

 

Jurak and Klaasen began the afternoon with a 5-2 mixed doubles triumph over the Breakers’ Alla Kudryavtseva and Scott Lipsky. Then Rogers and Nicole Gibbs battled it out in women’s singles, with Rogers upending Gibbs, 5-2, for a 10-4 Aviators advantage.

 

“It’s different playing for your team than just singles for myself,” said Rogers after the singles win, in which she rallied from down 1-2 and facing a game point in what may have been the turning point of the match.

 

Next was men’s doubles, with the duo of Harrison and Klaasen extending the Aviators’ advantage to a commanding 15-6 with another 5-2 set triumph, over Scott Lipsky and Dennis Novikov. Women’s doubles was next, with Rogers and Jurak teaming to topple Gibbs and Kudryavtseva by that same 5-2 score.

 

Men’s singles completed the day, as the Breakers’ Dennis Novikov salvaged the only set win, 5-4, to keep Orange County alive, Harrison then closed out the championship by winning the second Extended Play game. League co-founder Billie Jean King and Mylan WTT CEO/Commissioner Ilana Kloss presented the Aviators, including team owners Fred Luddy and Jack McGrory, with the their first King Trophy.

 

Winning the title at Forest Hills Stadium was also special for Lloyd who was named as the 2016 Mylan WTT Coach of the Year earlier this month. “It brings a lot of memories back; I played back in the US Open when it was on grass and clay,” added Lloyd, in his second year at the helm of the new champions. “In fact on this court I lost to the great Bjorn Borg. It was nice to play on this beautiful court. To come back and win this title was great.”

Top Seeds Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams Come Into US Open Overcoming Injuries

(August 26, 2016) FLUSHING MEADOWS, New York – The two top seeds at the 2016 U.S. Open enter the tournament coming back from injuries. The world No. 1 man, Novak Djokovic said that he’s “getting there” in terms of his wrist injury.

The 12-time major champion talked about how his injury came about: “It happened actually in Rio, just few days before the start of the tournament,” said the Serb. I did experience this for the first time in my career. Never had this particular wrist injury before. I played against (Juan Martin) Del Potro, who unfortunately was absent from the tour for the wrist injury himself.

“You know, it was interesting for me to experience how was it and how it is for him for so many years struggling with that essential part of your body as a tennis player.

“Yeah, after undergoing certain treatments I’ve gotten better. I’m just hoping that Monday when the tournament starts I’ll be able to, as I said, get as close to the maximum of executing my backhand shot as possible.”

 

Twenty-two-time major winner and No. 1 Serena Williams had been dealing with a shoulder injury. “I have not played a lot, I haven’t practiced a lot, but I’m just now starting to feel a little better, she said.

“I’m really fit right now,” Williams continued. “I mean, I think I did serve pretty well at Wimbledon this year. I felt like I was able to hit aces when I wanted to. So, yeah, couple months ago, couple — few weeks ago.”

 

Both top players will face challenges in the very first round. Williams will be facing Russia’s Ekaterina Makarova, who upset Williams in the round of 16 at the 2012 Australian Open.

Commenting on her opponent she said, “she’s a big fighter. She never really stops.

“I think one thing I think that’s pretty impressive is she’s pretty — she gets a lot of balls back. You think she’s not super quick, but she is.”

 

Could potentially meet her sister Venus in the semifinals.

Djokovic will face off against a former Wimbledon semifinalist, once ranked 14th in the world, Poland’s Jerzy Janowicz.

 

Two-time U.S. Open winner and 14-time major title holder Rafael Nadal could face Djokovic in the semifinals, is also coming off a wrist injury. Nadal won the gold medal in doubles at the Rio Olympics.

“I am a little bit better,” talking about the wrist injury. “It’s obvious that when you have been outside two months and a half you need a little bit of time.

“I try to go quick, especially in the Olympics and then competing last week in Cincinnati, but the wrist still bothers me a little bit. It’s true that the wrist bothers me a little bit less every day. I need to understand again to hit my normal forehand.

“During the wrist injury always you try to find movements to avoid the pain. So I think today I can start the forehand, I think my normal forehand, but still needs time to feel that I am more confident on my wrist.

“But I am practicing well and I am competing well, I think.”

 

The fourth seed Nadal will open his quest for another title in Flushing Meadows against Denis Istomin.

No. 2 Andy Murray and No. 3 seed Stan Wawrinka are on the other side of the draw.

 

A potential dangerous floater in silver medalist and 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro who sits on Murray’s side of the draw in Stan Wawrinka’s quarter.

 

The No. 2 seed in the women’s draw is Angelique Kerber who missed a chance to become No. 1 in the world when she lost the final of Cincinnati. The German also lost in the gold medal final of the Olympics to Monica Puig.

Asked about her confidence after these two tough losses she said: “Actually, to be honest, I’m feeling good, because I have great matches in the last weeks, and especially a lot of positive emotions. I mean, of course I have two tough matches in the finals, but I played not bad. I mean, my opponent is playing good in these matches.

“But I have a lot of confidence to being here again, having a lot of time now for practicing and preparing for the last Grand Slam of the year.”

KEI NISHIKORI CLINCHES EMIRATES AIRLINE US OPEN SERIES MEN’S TITLE

Nishikori Wins First Emirates Airline US Open Series Title – 2014 US Open Finalist Will Now Compete for a Record $4.5 Million Payout at US Open

Women’s Bonus Challenge to be Decided This Weekend at Connecticut Open

From the USTA – August 25, 2016 – World No. 7 and 2014 US Open finalist Kei Nishikori clinched the 2016 Emirates US open Series men’s title tonight, with Viktor Trocki’s victory over Fernando Verdasco in the quarterfinals of the Winston-Salem Open in Winston-Salem, N.C. Nishikori will now attempt to set a record for the largest payout in tennis history at the US Open – $4.5 million; $3.5 million for winning the US Open and a $1 million bonus for winning the US Open as Emirates Airline US Open Series champion.

Nishikori finishes the Bonus Challenge with 85 points – 70 for reaching the Rogers Cup final in Toronto and 15 for advancing to the Round of 16 at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati. Verdasco was the only remaining player in Winston-Salem who could have overtaken him in the final standings.

Grigor Dimitrov finishes second in the men’s Bonus Challenge, while 2014 Emirates Airline US Open Series men’s champion Milos Raonic finishes third. Both players tied with 70 points; Dimitrov finishes second based on tiebreakers, having won seven matches on the Series this summer, as opposed to Raonic’s five. The second and third place finishers will compete for US Open bonus payouts of $500,000 and $250,000, respectively.

Novak Djokovic and Marin Cilic each earned 100 points for their Rogers Cup and Western & Southern Open victories, respectively. Players must earn points in two or more Emirates Airline US Open Series events to be eligible for the final Bonus Challenge standings and US Open bonus prize money.

The women’s Bonus Challenge will be decided this week at the Connecticut Open in New Haven, where Agnieszka Radwanska can overtake current leader Johanna Konta by winning the title.
