Tennis Today features quite a bit of show business news involving Andy Murray and Woody Harrelson while Novak Djokovic enjoys a night out.

What’s on the site
Andy Murray is gunning for another Grand Slam title as he would not have returned to competitive tennis if he didn’t think he was capable of winning a major. That’s according to his former mentor Mark Petchey.

Congratulations Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Li Na and Mary Pierce as they were inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame over the weekend.

Could you win a point against Serena Williams? Maybe watch this video before you answer.

John Isner and the Hall of Fame Open are made for each other with the American winning his fourth title on Sunday.

And in case you missed Saturday’s shenanigans, Bernard Tomic received a brutal rebuke letter after his appeal against his Wimbledon fine was rejected.

His equally controversial fellow Australian Nick Kyrgios was involved in a social media spat with another ATP pro.

What’s in the news
We are a little late with this, but it’s too good not to report from The Sun.

Andy Murray is a hot favourite to appear on Strictly Come Dancing after “bookmakers Coral were hit with a sudden wave of bets”.

“If he does join the class of 2019, he’ll be the one to beat,” Harry Aitkenhead from Coral said.

All that we will say is mind the hip Andy.

Oh and do look out for the pic of how Andy could look on the show.

Coco Gauff received a hero’s welcome on her return home to Pompey Park in Delray Beach, reports WPBF.com.

It’s not really a tennis story, but we know you are all interested to know how Woody Harrelson has been doing since he was refused entry into the Royal Box at Wimbledon.

Well, Metro reports he “looked chipper as he emerges following embarrassing Wimbledon rejection”.

Apparently Woody was “wearing the same hat he donned to the tennis championships in London last week”.

Sad news from Australia as former doubles Grand Slam champion Peter McNamara has died from cancer aged 64, reports The Guardian.

Juan Martin del Potro has someone to keep him warm in the cold of Patagonia. Also reminds us of George Michael’s Last Christmas music video. Just us?
