In Tennis Today, everyone is excited about the upcoming Roger Federer-Rafel Nadal meeting while fans are rushing to buy Queen’s tickets after it was announced Andy Murray will play doubles.

Johanna Konta produced one of her “best performances” to reach the French Open semi-final, but now she wants to “go one or two steps further”.

Chris Evert has served up the ultimate compliment to Konta after her dazzling display against Sloane Stephens in the Roland Garros quarter-final.

In the men’s draw, Roger Federer held off a gritty Stan Wawrinka in four sets to set up a semi-final showdown against old foe Rafael Nadal.

Back to Serena Williams vs Dominic Thiem, and John McEnroe has offered an alternative view of events.

How about another Legend of Roland Garros? Here is Bjorn Borg.

Then the latest on Andy Murray’s return to action and his Queen’s partner Feliciano Lopez hopes their doubles adventure will prove to be the gateway to a return to singles for the Brit.

Staying with Murray, the three-time Grand Slam winner’s return has led to a spike in ticket sales for the Fever-Tree Championships at Queen’s, reports the Daily Mail.

The Sun is on hand to tell you how much Johanna Konta is earning through her French Open adventure.
