    The fifth set alone is 6+ hours, longer than any whole match in Wimbledon history.

    -Tennis player banned for life for match-fixing


    LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP)—Austrian tennis player Daniel Koellerer became the first player banned for life for match-fixing, losing his appeal at sport’s highest court on Friday.

    The Court of Arbitration for Sport dismissed the challenge to a ban imposed by the Tennis Integrity Unit created by the professional tours and international governing body.

    Koellerer allegedly “made invitations to other tennis players to fix matches on five occasions,” the court said in a statement. “The panel ruled that the tennis governing bodies had met their burden of proof.”

    However, the court decided Koellerer should not pay a $100,000 fine previously ordered.

    “The player did not benefit financially from any of the charges for which he has been found liable,” according to the panel of three arbitrators.

    Koellerer was the first player banned for life for attempted corruption after being found guilty of violations from October 2009 to July 2010.

    He challenged his expulsion at a two-day CAS hearing held last November. The court upheld his ban, “acknowledging that the sanction was sufficiently high enough to reflect the seriousness of the corruption offences.”

    Koellerer’s ranking peaked at No. 55 in October 2009.

    Nadal sucks. He got injured once again and quit. Djokovic continues to win. Go Novak.

    Lisa Raymond becomes oldest No. 1 in tennis history





    Getting to No. 1 is nothing new for American Lisa Raymond. She's been at the top of the WTA doubles rankings five times in her lengthy career, on-and-off for much of the past decade. Her recent rise to No. 1 is a bit different. In topping this week's list, Raymond becomes the oldest man or woman in history to be at the top of a professional tennis ranking.

    "It's definitely a lot more special this time than ever before," Raymond said in a WTA news report. "I'm the fittest I've ever been in my career, and I found the right partner too.

    Raymond, 38, will be a co-No. 1 with her playing partner, Liezel Huber. With each successive win, she'll move up the all-time doubles list, where she currently sits at No. 6 in most tournament victories (behind such names as Martina Navratilova and Billie Jean King).

    "She has worked so hard to be back at the top and I can't even imagine doing that at 38!,
    said Fed Cup captain Mary Joe Fernandez. "She and Liezel make a great team and will be going for the gold at the Olympics."

    Other Lisa stats:

    Fifth time reaching No. 1 and her first ascension to the top spot since 2007.

    Made her No. 1 debut on June 12, 2000. Bill Clinton was president, "Gladiator" was winning the box office and Caroline Wozniacki was nine.

    She won the career Slam in 2006 by winning the French Open. Overall, Raymond has won six Grand Slam titles.
