Johanna Konta fit for Wimbledon after hurting spine in ‘traumatic fall’

• Konta plays Hsieh Su-wei, who beat her in French Open first round• Heather Watson boosted by winning runs in Surbiton and EastbourneIt is only a few days since Johanna Konta was sobbing into the turf of Eastbourne, her head throbbing wildly from a whiplashed tumble and her prospects of playing at Wimbledon in the call of doctors rightly concerned about the state of her thoracic spinal cord. It was a chilling image.Cue the smiling arrival of Britain’s No1 hope in the women’s draw at Wimbledon on Sunday, as the sixth seed, and all seems well with her world. No, she says, there was never any doubt she would play – although there was no convincing evidence from her camp to that effect in the worrying day or so after she fell on her way to defeating the world No1, Angelique Kerber, in the quarter-finals of the Aegon tournament in her home town.

Heather Watson out but not down after Eastbourne loss to Caroline Wozniacki

• Wozniacki wins Aegon International semi-final 6-2, 3-6, 7-5 • Watson shows positive form days before start of WimbledonThe locals spilling into Devonshire Park on a muggy morning in Eastbourne arrived with high hopes of seeing two home favourites lift the untimely grey mood hanging over British tennis before the start of Wimbledon.Shortly before the start of play, however, everyone found themselves reading up on thoracic spine injuries. Johanna Konta soon emerged for a hastily arranged press conference, offered no assurances about the upper back injury that forced her to pull out of her Aegon International semi-final and smiled weakly before making a speedy exit. Two hours later Heather Watson stuck a final forehand into the net in her semi-final against Caroline Wozniacki and it was time for lunch. Continue reading...

Johanna Konta’s Wimbledon challenge in doubt after Eastbourne withdrawal

• British No1 injured back after heavy fall in win over Angelique Kerber• ‘I’m not thinking about [Wimbledon]. Right now I’m just resting’If Johanna Konta decides to pull out of Wimbledon – and judging by her low-key mood on Friday, that sounds at least a 40/60 proposition – it will be the right call, whatever the despondency it spreads. Hers has never been a fast-burning career, more a grinding build towards excellence that has carried her to No7 in the world at the age of 26 and, in the absence of Serena Williams, sixth seed at these championships.Before the most heroic day of her career – at Eastbourne on Thursday when she beat the newly crowned French Open champion, Jelena Ostapenko, then fell heavily to the ground on the third of four match points on her way to victory over the woebegone world No1, Angelique Kerber – her Wimbledon seeding would have appeared generous to many who have witnessed her indifferent form since breaking through to win the prestigious Miami title in early April.

Roger Federer dispatches Alexander Zverev to secure ninth Halle title

• World No5 wraps up 6-1, 6-3 victory in statement of intent for Wimbledon• Petra Kvitova wins Aegon Classic just six months after stabbing incidentRoger Federer, to the delight of his fans and despair of his rivals, installed himself as an undeniably strong candidate to win Wimbledon for the eighth time when he blitzed the 20-year-old Alexander Zverev in 53 minutes of the Halle final on Sunday.With Andy Murray hidden away repairing a game that remains worryingly short of the pleasing consistency he needs to keep his title, the three-times champion Novak Djokovic heading for Eastbourne to do a similar job on his own, even more fragile tennis and Rafael Nadal – who has lost to players outside the top 100 on his last four visits to the All England Club – biding his time at home in Majorca, the ageless Federer has emerged to revive memories of past glories.

Roger Federer rolls back years to set up Halle final against Alexander Zverev

• Federer beats Karen Khachanov 6-4, 7-6 (5) in Gerry Weber Open• Marin Cilic will play Grigor Dimitrov or Feliciano López in Queen’s finalAcross the tennis landscape a week before Wimbledon, young and old are eying each other like wolves hunting lambs and nobody looks more relaxed on the way to the All England Club than the 35-year-old genius who all but owns the tournament, Roger Federer.The seven-times Wimbledon champion with realistic ambitions of prevailing again goes into the final in Halle on Sunday, reaching for his ninth title, after dowsing the high-octane challenge of the 21-year-old Russian Karen Khachanov, 6-4, 7-6 (5). Federer has not dropped a set all week, although he has been pushed hard, which is exactly what he needs after 11 weeks off the Tour to prepare for the short grass swing. Continue reading...

Marin Cilic books Aegon Championships semi-final and targets run at Wimbledon

• The 2012 champion beats Donald Young 6-4, 7-5 in quarter-finals• World No7 hopes Queen’s Club form can lead to title bid in SW19The late Bud Collins, who cast his knowing gaze over the game for several decades, eulogised Marin Cilic seven years ago in terms rock writers once reserved for Bruce Springsteen. That year in Melbourne, it took Andy Murray four sets to stop him in the semi-finals but the languid Croatian has only briefly touched the skies since, outlasting a spent Kei Nishikori to win the US Open in 2014.Now that the draw at the Aegon Championship has opened up for him like the Red Sea, the 28-year-old Cilic thinks it might be the time to reassert his elite credentials. He plays Gilles Müller, six years his senior, in the semi-finals on Saturday. He hopes victory there, and in Sunday’s final, will set up a convincing charge at Wimbledon which starts on 3 July.

Dan Evans reveals positive drug test for cocaine – ‘I made a mistake’

• ‘I must face up to it,’ says British No3• World No50 says he failed drugs test in AprilDan Evans, the British No3 and world No50 tennis player, revealed in a brief and emotional statement on Friday that he had failed an out-of-competition test for cocaine. He faces a lengthy ban, probably two years.The 27-year-old from Birmingham, who has had his funding stripped twice in the past for attitude and behaviour problems, said in a hastily convened press conference in a west London hotel that lasted just a minute and a half: “Hello everyone, this is a very difficult day for me. I wanted to come here in person to tell you guys face to face, I was notified a few days ago that I failed a drugs test in April, where I tested positive for cocaine. It’s really important that you know this was taken out of competition and in a context completely unrelated to tennis. Continue reading...

Novak Djokovic accepts Eastbourne wildcard in bid to find Wimbledon form

• First time Djokovic will play grass court event before Wimbledon• Heather Watson, Laura Robson and James Ward get Wimbledon wild cardsIt is a measure of Novak Djokovic’s anxiety that he has abandoned his Wimbledon ritual of arriving fresh to the grass of the All England Club without playing in a warm-up tournament.The Serb, whose last appearance on court was giving up the third and final set of his quarter-final at Roland Garros against Dominic Thiem without winning a game, returns to the Tour in the Aegon International at Eastbourne next week, the first time in seven years he has played on grass between the French Open and Wimbledon.

Andy Murray suffers ‘big blow’ to Wimbledon hopes in Queen’s exit

• Murray: ‘If I play like that, I certainly won’t win Wimbledon’• World No1 beaten in first round by lucky loser Jordan ThompsonAndy Murray, as candid in defeat as he is humble in victory, admitted he has little chance of retaining his Wimbledon title next month, if he plays the way he did in losing to world No90 Jordan Thompson in the first round of the Aegon Championships. The five-times Queen’s Club champion admitted the shock defeat was “a big blow” so close to Wimbledon.The world No1 said: “This tournament has given me great preparation in the past. When I have done well here, Wimbledon has tended to go pretty well, too. But, if I play like that, I certainly won’t win Wimbledon. I can play better than that.” Continue reading...

Andy Murray crashes out of Aegon Championships to lucky loser Thompson

• World No1 beaten 7-6 (7-4), 6-2 by Australian world No90• ‘I didn’t create loads of chances, really. I didn’t return particularly well’Andy Murray looked some way removed from the greatest champion this tournament has ever had when the late substitute Jordan Thompson dumped the world No1 out of the Aegon Championships in the first round on another sweltering day of upsets, mishaps and drama.The 23-year-old Australian, ranked 90 in the world and drafted in as a lucky loser when Aljaz Bedene withdrew in the morning of day two with a recurrence of a wrist injury, trusted his talent and stuck to a solid grasscourt game behind a big serve on his way to winning 7-6, 6-2 in an hour and 43 minutes. His finishing stroke was his 12th ace. Continue reading...

Andy Murray crashes out of Aegon Championships to lucky loser Jordan Thompson

Five-time champion Andy Murray’s Wimbledon preparations suffered a blow with a 7-6, 6-2 defeat to Jordan Thompson at Queen’sStan Wawrinka: ‘Winning Wimbledon too far away for me to talk about’And feel free to email Jacob or tweet him @JacobSteinberg 6.09pm BST It’s Andy Murray’s first defeat Queen’s since he lost in the third round to Radek Stepanek in 2014 - funnily enough that one also finished 7-6, 6-2. Murray was the defending Wimbledon champion that year as well. He went on to lose badly to Grigor Dimitrov in the last eight. He’ll hope this setback to Jordan Thompson, the world No90, isn’t an omen before he heads to the All England Club. He was pretty awful today, although it should be pointed out that the first match back on grass can be tricky for the top players. Murray wouldn’t have been expecting that performance, though, and what must also be acknowledged is that Thompson played extremely well and his win’s blown this tournament wide open. Murray, Wawrinka and Raonic are all out. It’s up for grabs! Thanks for reading. Bye. 6.06pm BST The applause from the locals is respectful as Thompson, playing rather brilliantly, drills a forehand down the line for 15-0 and whacks an ace past Murray to lead 30-0. But he won’t win this match without dealing with a few nerves: two poor forehands allow Murray to fight back to 30-all. He settles down with a big serve that Murray can only block into the net, bringing up a match point. It’s all he needs. He swings another ace down the middle and Andy Murray, the defending champion, is out! Continue reading...
