TENNIS WATCH: Verdasco's abs & foot, Djokovic's big heart, Oudin's private life

According to, Fernando Verdasco will miss Spain's upcoming Davis Cup tie to allow an abdominal injury to heal and have surgery on his foot.
" I have micro tears [in the abdominal], and tomorrow I have proof to know how long I need to rest, to recover. But I think it's going to take around one week or ten days," Verdasco said.

"So in that time, I will take that time also to have the surgery on my foot."
Does that mean Verdasco would not be able to recover in time for the Malaysian Open scheduled to take place end of this month?


Novak Djokovic is all out to win America's heart.

He invited children of 9/11 victims to watch his matches in his box.
"We had this idea before the tournament, and I didn't want to talk about it, obviously."

"Well, it's a gesture that I hope it means [something] for them. I've been meeting four different guys in these two weeks. I have been giving them some presents after the matches."

"I just try to bring some smiles and make them enjoy. I hope that's what I did."


You know you're famous when people want to know about your private life.

That's happening to Melanie Oudin.

It has been reported that John Oudin, Melanie Oudin's father has filed for divorce from Melanie's mother, Leslie, in July 2008, alleging that Leslie was having an affair with Melanie's coach Brian de Villiers. *Gulp!*

Still about, Melanie Oudin, she just signed a multi-year endorsement deal with technology company BackOffice Associates, who also sponsors James Blake.

Specific terms of the deal were not disclosed.
