“Tennis is a better sport than having to misbehave to create some kind of attention,” says Mats Wilander after Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvevev and Nick Kyrgios’ recent antics.

Daniil Medvedev has been hailed as a “genius” by his coach Gilles Cervara after his win over Stan Wawrinka.

“It’s like to coach a genius,” Cervara is quoted as saying by The Independent. “Sometimes a genius, you don’t understand them. It’s like this. They are different.”

After cheering on Rafael Nadal on Monday, Tiger Woods returned to Flushing Meadows on Tuesday to support Serena Williams and the Daily Mail has a lot of pictures for you.

Tiger wasn’t the only celebrity to attend the Williams match as Vanessa Williams and Martha Stewart were also in the crowd and yes, you guessed it, Daily Mail has the details.
