It’s a big one in the women’s draw today as Serena Williams takes on Maria Sharapova and it promises to be extra spicy after the American gave her thoughts on the Russian’s autobiography.
Then there is Novak Djokovic who feels that making the quarter-finals at Roland Garros is “quite an achievement”.
What’s in the news
Mike Dickson in the Daily Mail reports that Andy Murray “will reveal all about his return from hip injury in next 48 hours”.
Telegraph Sport has a guide on the Maria Sharapova-Serena Williams clash and they go for a Russian win. We’ll be doing our betting preview a bit later and we can tell you that’s not what we have gone for.
Also in Telegraph Sport, Simon Briggs also looks at the “Simmering feud between Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams” that is coming to boil. Warning it’s subscription.
