In Tennis Today, Wimbledon awaits news on how easily they can proceed with their expansion plans,and Eugenie Bouchard gets a weird award. 

What’s on the site
Well, the close-season seems like a good time to update out biggest ATP career earners list, so we did.

Who tops the money-list now? Last season, Roger Federer was top with Novak Djokovic hot on his heels. The Serb has had a brilliant second half of the season, but has it been enough? Find out here.

Of course, neither Federer nor Djokovic would have got to the top of that list without a killer winning attitude, and we round up some of the best of them tennis has to offer.

Djokovic, meanwhile, treated himself to a night at the football this week, and you can watch how that went with us too.

And Andy Murray has been feeling in mischievous mood on Instagram, where he is offering rule-change suggestions.

What’s in the news
Wimbledon will discover on Thursday night whether their huge expansion plans can be carried out, report the Daily Mail.

They are attempting to purchase a 73-acre site across the road, currently the Wimbledon Park golf club.

They hope to buy the club so they can install new courts and bring the tournament’s qualifying stages ‘in-house’.

Members of the golf-club will vote on the £65million buyout offer, with a 75% pass-rate rate required to allow the sale to go through.

What’s on social media
Alexander Zverev steps up his training regime.
