Tennis Today: Novak Djokovic’s car problems plus Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal clickbait brilliance
In Tennis Today, Novak Djokovic is just like the rest of us and a clickbait genius headline featuring Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Djokovic.
What’s on the site
Simona Halep is turning into a WTA Tour powerhouse as she is starting to move away from the chasing pack.
We recall when Andre Agassi lost his cool and got tossed from the RCA Championships in 1996.
The Davis Cup revamp controversy rumbles on and Roger Federer admits it is “sad” that the next generation won’t be able to experience the tournament as we know it.
Novak Djokovic created history when he won the Cincinnati Masters final against Roger Federer.
In the women’s final, Kiki Bertens secured the biggest win of her career when she beat Simona Halep.
What’s in the news
Still some Davis Cup ramblings as Greg Rusedski told Press Association Sport, via Sportsmail, that “with this new format it’s just become an exhibition now”.
Express Sport is always on hand with their teasing headlines and today they go with “Roger Federer STRUGGLED with this during Cincinnati Masters final – Novak Djokovic”.
So what is THIS, you wonder?
Federer struggled to move at times during the match.
Staying with Express Sport and a word of advice for Rafael Nadal as he should probably look away now as he “won’t like this”.
It’s time for another GOAT debate as Djokovic had the following to say about Federer after the Cincinnati final. We assume this was after he claimed that the Swiss was struggling.
“He’s a great champion and probably the best to ever play the game.”
“Roger Federer: Novak Djokovic makes honest admission, Rafael Nadal won’t like this”
This was probably a case of throw the names of Djokovic, Federer and Nadal in the same headline and you can enter clickbait heaven.
Tennis Today is fully aware that we have done the same with our headline. You gotta do what you gotta do.
What’s on social media
Car problems for Djokovic.
But who cares about car problems when you can collect Masters 1000 titles and stamps.
