In Tennis Today, Sir Andy Murray’s wealth has increased while Fernando Verdasco “should be hung out to dry” after his antics over the weekend.

What’s on the site
Nearly a month after the US Open final, Naomi Osaka admits it feels like a “bad memory”.

It’s all happening in women’s tennis with Sloane Stephens unhappy after “f****** b****” Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova tried to hit her during their China Open match.

And another controversial video as Fernando Verdasco has been slammed after he berated a ball boy during his opening match at the China Open.

The ATP Tour is in Beijing and Tokyo this week and our tipster Deggsy Bilton is back with your betting preview.

What’s in the news
Andy Murray’s company 77 Management has increased its worth by more than £3 million to £25,093,00, as per the Daily Mail.

Back to Verdasco and The Australian’s Wally Mason says “Fernando Verdasco’s dummy spit shows stars need to get their own towels”.

Jim White in Telegraph Sport says “Towelling inferno Fernando Verdasco should be hung out to dry”.

He adds: “It was about as ugly a piece of bullying as you will witness on a tennis court: a millionaire professional verbally assaulting a young volunteer for being a touch tardy in servicing his needs. Nice.”

Also in Telegraph Sport, Charlie Ecclestone explains “How grand slams became the exclusive property of 30-and-overs”.

In case you didn’t know “for the first time in the Open Era there is not a single male grand-slam champion under 30 years old”.

What’s on social media
