It’s always great when we have a sports crossover and Andy Murray provides us with today’s edition as he has had his say on the troubles at Arsenal.
The Gunner fan told talkSPORT that time is running out for manager Unai Emery as unless results change quickly “a change has to be made”… well Emery has since been sacked. T365 with the breaking football news.
And you know who he would’ve liked to see as Arsenal boss?
That’s right, Jose Mourinho “would have been a great appointment”.
But of course that ship has sailed as the Portuguese manager is now at North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Is Rafael Nadal Spain’s greatest ever sportsperson?
Former world No 2 Alex Corretja thinks so and it’s hard to argue against it.
“He is a machine, he will continue fighting until the end, giving his best and I wish he lasts a long time because it’s impossible to see someone like him again,” Corretja told Eurosport.es, translated by UbiTennis.com.
Spare a thought for ball boy Justin Arrington-Holmes after he missed out on a massive pay day.
Arrington-Holmes was given the racket that Serena Williams demolished during the infamous 2018 US Open final defeat against Naomi Osaka.
He sold it for $500 to a collectibles store in New York City, but that same racket is expected to be sold for $50,000 at an auction.
If you have a spare $50,000 in your wallet, then you have until December 7 to bid on the racket.
Wimbledon is one of several major sporting events in the United Kingdom that is becoming greener, according to Daily Telegraph.
“The All England Club, venue for Wimbledon, said it had bought 100 per cent renewable energy, had LED floodlights on Centre Court and Court One, was zero waste to landfill and was working towards eliminating single-use plastic. A vegan offering was in development, cycle storage was already in existence while there are plans to look at car-charging points when The All England Club has the space to control public parking,” according to the paper.
Another heart-warming story as former Wimbledon doubles champion Sania Mirza is set to return to the WTA Tour after a two-year break to give birth to her first child.
“I am playing in Hobart, then I am playing the Australian Open,” she told the Press Trust of India, via NDTV.
