Let’s start with our couple of exclusives with Tim Henman as the former British No 1 chats to Kevin Palmer about Roger Federer and Andy Murray’s latest comeback attempts.

We also have Henman voicing “some concerns” over how the Australian Open will proceed in January and whether or not Wimbledon 2021 will go ahead.

Then there is Ivan Lendl talking about Andy Murray with the American insisting the three-time Grand Slam winner still has the passion to play competitive tennis and has earned the right to receive wildcards into big tournaments.

And for your heartbreaking story of the week look no further than Sabine Lisicki as the former Wimbledon finalist has suffered another cruel injury. We look at her injury woes, serious illness and misfortune.

The ATP Finals is just around the corner and the draw for the season-ending tournament has been completed, but it wasn’t a kind draw for world No 2 Rafael Nadal.

And looking ahead after a coronavirus-frustrated year, Australian Open Tournament Director Craig Tiley admits the picture is not looking too rosy for the hard-court Grand Slam over the next few years.

It’s a few days old, but Metro.co.uk’s Claire Wilson has written a very good piece titled “How the world of tennis became a target for online abuse and death threats”.

“While online abuse is certainly rife in sport – especially for female athletes, with a BBC survey revealing earlier this year that a third of elite sports women had fallen victim to it – tennis players have ended up being specifically targeted,” writes Wilson.
