An interview with: ANDY MURRAY

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.
Q. First of all, congratulations. From my perspective, it looked like you played like a man just possessed out there. Just talk about the fight that you had and the feeling of having...
Newly crowned US Open champion Serena Williams and sister Venus will play each other in an exhibition match on a visit to South Africa in early November.
The Americans will also attend a coaching clinic in the famous Soweto township when they travel to the country in support of a women's charity, organizers said Wednesday. They will face each other on court for the first time...
After a 76 year wait, Britain finally hit it’s Grand Slam. Andy Murray won his first Grand Slam title Monday night at the U.S. Open defeating Novak Djokovic in five grueling sets. After Murray won the first two sets 7-6 (10) and 7-5, Djokovic mounted a comeback taking the next two 2-6 and 3-6. Murray fought off the defending champion nearly five hours into the match winning the...
We all know that Serena Williams LURVS her some karaoke, and after winning her 15th Major title (and becoming the first female athlete to make over $40,000,000 in prize money) she decided to show all of us her dazzling (or ear piercing?) karaoke skills as she belted out Gloria Gaynor's classic, "I Will Survive." It is so amazing. Enjoy!

With no Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal in this year's semifinal lineup, most tennis fans were most excited over the potential Novak Djokovic vs. Andy Murray final. They had met once before in a major final, the 2011 Australian Open final, where Djokovic trounced him. Their last meeting in a major was one to remember, with Novak Djokovic prevailing in five epic sets at this year...
Tennis fans are not used to seeing Serena Williams, one of the greatest champions the women's game has ever seen, struggle in a big match. However, this is exactly what the American star had done in the US Open the past few years. In 2009, she suffered an emotional breakdown in her semifinal match against Kim Clijsters after a foot fault call and received a point penalty on match...
A summer of dreams, tinged with gold and bursting with achievement, culminated for Serena Williams on Sunday with victory in a terrific women's final at the US Open over a gallant Victoria Azarenka by 6-2, 2-6, 7-5.
Singles and doubles titles at Wimbledon; gold medals in singles and doubles in the Olympics (with Venus as her partner both times, of course) and now her first US...
A teenage girl whose natural and healthy body type doesn't fit into a size zero, or onto the cover of a magazine, is already under enough pressure. You cannot tell her that her problem is "fitness" without her hearing the word "fatness."
You can't add punishment for it, hold back money for her future, threaten her family's finances. Bluntly: You can...
Last night, tennis superstar Serena Williams dropped by "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and talked about her karaoke bar celebration after winning the U.S. Open women's tennis tournament.
Serena mentioned that she sung Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" during the night and Jimmy decided to put her on the spot by getting her to sing it to his audience...
