Federer's team leave nothing to chance

You would have thought he had seen it all before, but Roger Federer has had the unusual experience here this week of playing three opponents in a row whom he had never met before. The results, nevertheless, have been familiar. Sergiy Stakhovsky last night went the way of Somdev Devvarman and Marcel Granollers as Federer booked his place in today's semi-finals of the Dubai Duty Free Championships with a comfortable 6-3, 6-4 victory.

Wozniacki: 'I know all your boring questions here are the answers'

Women's tennis is boring. The leading players are boring as personalities, they play in a boring style and it is ridiculous that the world's top-ranked woman has never won a Grand Slam title.

Tennis, The Lexington, London

Married couple Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore were on the high seas when they wrote the songs which have brought Tennis across the Atlantic, on a promising ripple of blogosphere acclaim. Their eight-month voyage along the US east coast makes this literal yacht rock, though they seem to have managed it by determined saving and dreaming, rather than the champagne lifestyles of the 1970s soft-rockers the term normally implies. There is a cardigan-wearing indie amateurism to Tennis at odds with the America's Next Top Model ads their tunes have started appearing on.
