In Tennis Today, Andy Murray is using an “advanced product” to help boost his fitness and Bianca Andreescu finally gets a message from Drake.

What’s on the site
It’s hard to believe, but Rafael Nadal struggled to get going after his Australian Open heartbreak and he admits he “seriously thought” about ending his 2019 season early.

He will no doubt be delighted he didn’t as he is now two Grand Slams richer.

Yes, it’s still mostly about Nadal and the Spaniard has named a “formidable group” of seven players who could replace the Big Three at the top one day.

One day could be next year or the year after or the year after or…

And in case you missed it, we have asked an expert for his advice on picking the right tennis racket.

You know you are itching to get out there and play after watching the US Open and Wimbledon finals.

What’s in the news
Times Sport’s Matthew Syed pays tribute to Jamie Murray after his latest US Open mixed doubles success, writing that “he shows us that, while not all of us can become the best, each of us can reach the summit of our own potential”. (Subscription)

From one Murray brother to the other.

Daily Mail says “Andy Murray is using collagen to boost hopes of a comeback”.

“To get back to the highest level of fitness, I knew I would have to train incredibly hard and push my body,” the former world No 1 said.

“I wanted to leave no stone unturned. My nutritionist felt I needed an advanced product that would help to support my joints, bone health and immune system.”

Bryan Armen Graham in The Guardian writes “Serena Williams won’t break Margaret Court’s record – and that’s OK”.

“Williams is the greatest women’s tennis player ever, a fact acknowledged deep down by even her most vehement critics. The record, or, specifically, wanting it to be beyond any plausible argument, is merely completism.”
