Marcus Willis is one of thousands of players who are unable to compete after the International Tennis Federation’s drastic changes at lower-level tournaments.

“There are two different rankings systems and it’s a mess,” Willis told The Telegraph.

World No 1 Naomi Osaka has been honoured with her own Barbie, which forms part of the Barbie’s “Sheroes” campaign.

“It’s a really big honor,” she told People. “I’ve played with Barbies when I was a kid, and I think it’s a bit of a surreal experience to have the opportunity to have a Barbie that looks like me.”

Remember Eugenie Bouchard’s Super Bowl date story from 2017?

Let’s refresh your memory.

Bouchard went on a date with a Patriots fan named John Goehrke after she lost a bet on Twitter.

Well, reports it will be turned into a romantic comedy and “Bouchard will serve as an executive producer”.

Wonder who will play Bouchard in the movie?

Cruz Hewitt, son of Lleyton, showing off his tennis playing skills and the Daily Mail is all over it.
