Andy Murray

In Tennis Today, Andy Murray and Serena Williams join the off-season silliness.

What’s on the site
The ‘big three’ of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are well established as tennis’ true titans, but does TV really do them justice? Michael Graham went to the ATP Finals to find out.

How are the big names likely to fare on the ATP Tour in 2020? Our tennis betting expert Derek Bilton takes a look, and he still believes in Rafael Nadal.

We can expect Novak Djokovic to bounce back stronger next season after finishing the year second behind Rafael Nadal, according to his coach Goran Ivanisevic.

And in the not so surprising news of the month, David Ferrer says Rafael Nadal has his sights set on Roger Federer’s Grand Slam record.

What’s in the news
Andy Murray took on Mark Lawrenson in the BBC Sport’s Premier League predictions ahead of this weekend’s round of games and he didn’t fare too badly as he scored 80 points with one result still pending.

And then there is also Andy Murray’s travel adventures in the Daily Mail as he reveals his favourite city, among other things.

Apparently Serena Williams’ “ponytail is so EXTRA” that she named it.

We were initially only going to post just an Instagram picture, but has a very detailed story about the tennis great’s “New Ombré Ponytail Is the Longest She’s Ever Worn Her Hair”.
