About Russell

I started life as the BBC's tennis correspondent in the... Read more about Russell Fuller wake of Andy Murray's Wimbledon triumph, and will be reporting here on events at each of the four Grand Slams, as well as the best other stories as the circuit zigzags the globe.

I joined BBC Sport in the late 1990s, as a presenter on 5 live and the World Service, and have covered four Olympic Games, South Africa's 2010 World Cup, and more Open Championships than I care to remember.

'Murray must plan for Djokovic task'

Read full article on Andy Murray 'needs clear strategy' to sink Novak Djokovic

Andy Murray arrived back in the UK from Melbourne no closer to cracking the code required to defeat Novak Djokovic in a Grand Slam.

The world number two played some outstanding tennis in the second and third sets of the Australian Open final. And yet he still left the court with nothing to show for it, and without a win over the Serb at this level since the 2013 Wimbledon final.

Konta faces Melbourne's other big surprise

Read full article on Australian Open: Johanna Konta v Zhang Shuai quarter-final

Johanna Konta's path to the semi-finals of the Australian Open is blocked by a woman who, in the words of the British number one, is on an even "more incredible journey" than she is.

Konta will be the first British woman to contest a Grand Slam quarter-final for 32 years when she takes on Chinese qualifier Zhang Shuai on Rod Laver Arena from 01:30 GMT on Wednesday.

The first point of Leon Smith's reign as Davis Cup captain was scored by Jamie Baker in Eastbourne in July 2010. His opponent was Turkey's world number 866 Ergun Zorlu.

Great Britain won every match that week to avoid dropping into the competition's fourth division, but the top tier World Group - let alone the giant sterling silver cup which Dwight Davis lent his name to in 1900 - was a distant dream.

Djokovic's body clock gives him time

Only six men in the history of tennis have won more Grand Slam titles than Novak Djokovic, and as he promised after winning a 10th in New York on Sunday: "As long as there is this flare in me, I will be coming back."

Winning three more Grand Slams would take him past Bjorn Borg, Rod Laver and Roy Emerson on the all-time list, and in sight of Pete Sampras and Rafael Nadal, who both have 14 to their name.

Why Murray faces tough decisions

This has, in many ways, been a very reassuring year for Andy Murray.

He won his first Masters Series title for over two years in Madrid in May, and added another in Montreal last month. And by reaching the Australian Open final, as well as the last four at Roland Garros and Wimbledon, Murray has re-established himself as one of the best three players in the world. He even beat Novak Djokovic - to end a run of eight consecutive defeats by the world number one.

Why Konta is suddenly on the rise

Read full article on Jo Konta: Why British hope is rising through the ranks

Jo Konta ended last year at 150 in the world, but will become a top 50 player and replace Heather Watson as the British number one if she beats Petra Kvitova in the fourth round of the US Open on Monday.

The odds may be against a woman who had won only one Grand Slam match in her entire career before this week, but confidence is a wonderful thing. After victory over the Wimbledon runner-up Garbine Muguruza and the 18th seed Andrea Petkovic here in New York, Konta has now won 16 matches in a row.

As Serena Williams chases history at the US Open, her coach Patrick Mouratoglou says he is "completely convinced" she is going to beat Steffi Graf's record tally of Grand Slam titles.

Williams will become the first player to complete the calendar Grand Slam since Graf in 1988 if she wins in New York, and will also draw level with the German's Open era record of 22 major titles.

Whisper it quietly, but Great Britain could just win the Davis Cup this year.

Belgium have accounted for holders Switzerland, and Argentina for Serbia. The strongest all-round team in the competition were France, until GB finished them off on a memorable weekend at the Queen's Club.

Murray might have to play doubles

When Great Britain last won a Davis Cup quarter-final, they had to fly to Christchurch in the week after Wimbledon to beat New Zealand. Thirty-four years later, they have less than five miles to travel, but the quality of the opposition is exceptionally high.

If France win on grass at the Queen's Club in London this weekend, they will contest the semi-finals for the fourth time in six years.

Can Serena Slam become Grand Slam?

Serena Williams warmed up for Wimbledon on Jack Nicklaus' grass courts, and watched on TV as the American golfer Jordan Spieth won the US Open to complete the first half of the Grand Slam.

Williams has already done the same, and will be three-quarters of the way there if she wins Wimbledon for a sixth time on 11 July.
