In Tennis Today, Andy Murray wants to visit the “spectacular” tennis court in the Outer Hebrides while Serena Williams shows off her figure and red boots.

What’s on the site

After a brief break for some of the biggest names in the game, it is back to action this week as world No 1 Novak Djokovic will feature at the Vienna Open. Djokovic will get an opportunity to cement the year-end world No 1 ranking, which will see him draw level with Pete Sampras.

Hometown hero and US Open champion Dominic Thiem will also be in action in Vienna in what he describes as the “probably the best [ATP] 500 tournament ever” as it features a host of top players.

Of course there is a lot of love between Djokovic and Thiem and the former describing the Austrian as a “hard worker, great guy”.

And in case you missed it, Alexander Zverev won another trophy in Cologne and issued a warning to his rivals.

Over on the WTA Tour, Aryna Sabalenka won the first-ever all-Belarusian final as she beat Victoria Azarenka in Ostrava.

What’s in the news

Andy Murray plans to visit a “remote court in the Outer Hebrides” reports Scotland Magazine via The Press and Journal.

And in case you were wondering “Outer Hebrides is an island chain off the west coast of mainland Scotland”.

“I’ve always been intrigued by the Outer Hebrides and some of the isles in the north,” he said.

“I’d love to check out the Isle of Harris, it’s supposed to be incredible and it’s also home to Bunabhainneadar where they have a tennis court, which they say is the most remote in the world, and it looks spectacular.

There is a bit of good news for next year’s Australian Open after the state of Victoria’s coronavirus restrictions were eased, reports Reuters.

The Victoria government is hopeful that fans will be allowed to attend some of the big sporting events over the next few months with the Australian Open likely to allow at least 100,000 domestic spectators.

Meanwhile, Serena Williams’ daughter Olympia had her first tennis lesson and she posted the video on Instagram Stories, but we missed it so we will just have to go with the Elle.com report.
