What’s in the news
A couple of weeks ago there were concerns over the Queen’s Club Championship as it was without a sponsor, but fear no more as the Daily Mail Sport reports that Fever-Tree has come to the party and the tournament will be known as the Fever-Tree Championships for the next couple of years.
We can’t wait to use Fever-Tree Championships in our headlines in the coming months. In case you were wondering, Feliciano Lopez is the defending Fever-Tree Championships champion.
We are not quite sure why The Sun decided now is the time to tell us all we need to know about Andy Murray, but here you go.
“ACE GUY: Here’s how much tennis great Andy Murray is worth and how many children he has”
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.
