We suspect it’s a rehashed piece, but they forgot to update some parts as under “Here is what the No 1 has earned from each tournament last year” it states he got big bucks at the US Open and ATP World Tour Finals. Of course, Murray didn’t compete as he was injured.
Serena Williams to win a tournament she owns? Dolphins majority owner Stephen Ross certainly thinks so. Serena and James Blake attended the groundbreaking ceremony at Hard Rock Stadium, where the Miami Open will take place from 2019.
