In Tennis Today, Andy Murray has shared some encouraging videos of him in training while Stefanos Tsitsipas gets excited about the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.

What’s on the site
He is currently on an 18-match winning streak and Novak Djokovic sure would like to keep that run going, but at the same time he says “it’s just way too early to speak about how long that run might go”.

Rafael Nadal, meanwhile, won title No 85 over the weekend but the Spaniard says he only has “one objective” and that is “to be remembered as someone who left a good example to boys and girls”.

There was a slight change in the top three of the ATP Rankings as Dominic Thiem has ended the Big Three’s dominance while there was also a big jump for Dan Evans.

On the WTA Rankings, it’s a case of as you were as Ashleigh Barty is still sitting pretty at the top.

What’s in the news
India’s Times Sportal has a nice interview with Stefanos Tsitsipas, which was conducted during the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships last week.

The Greek talks about his “biggest joy”, world No 1 Novak Djokovic, social media and the 2020 Olympics, among other things.

“I’ll just have tears in my eyes if I leave from Tokyo with a medal. I think it’s every athlete’s dream. Also it’s just fulfilling. It’s a great thing to have. It’s a great milestone, achievement, call it however you like to call it. It’s going to be one of the best two weeks of my life in Tokyo,” he said of the upcoming Olympics.

The Daily Mail reports that Nick Kyrgios has a new love interest.

And yes, they do have descriptions of Kyrgios and his “Russian beauty’s” attire.

What’s on social media
Andy Murray has shared some encouraging training videos via his Instagram Stories… you can go there before they expire, but here’s one we downloaded for you (please don’t sue us Andy).

And another one.
