What’s on the site
We have ranked Roger Federer’s Top 10 Grand Slam titles. See if you agree.
So who will take over the mantle from Federer and Rafael Nadal one day. Rod Laver believes it will be an Australian. Definitely not Bernie Tomic.
Speaking of Tomic, yip we just can’t help it, he is looking to turn over a new leaf after his time in the jungle and has called his stint on ‘I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!’ a “huge wake-up call” with tennis’ bad boy saying he wants to return to the court.
But while he may, or may not return, a leading medical specialist fears he won’t have to play the world’s top five players too often as they are the most likely to get injured given a whole host of factors.
