Tennis Today: HUGE out-of-context Roger Federer quotes on Rafael Nadal

In Tennis Today: One newspaper gives us a masterclass in the art of both news regurgitation and Roger Federer couldn’t appear less stressed. 

What’s on the site
Maria Sharapova isn’t having a lot of joy since returning from her doping ban, and we took a look at her, so far unsuccessful, attempts to reinvent herself.

Juan Martin del Potro, on the other hand, is having a great time right now. The Argentinian beat Roger Federer to win at Indian Wells earlier this month and he’s arguably looking in the best shape of his career.

However, he’s not looking at the Grand Slams, and he wants to make that very clear, even though absolutely no one will believe him.

We also took a look at those things that no one really wants in tennis, or sport in general, but we all sort of know we need: Sponsors. You can recall some of the best and worst right here.

What’s in the news
Did you hear the big breaking news? It’s big. Prepare yourself. Maybe sit down and gather your loved ones.

Are you ready?

Juan Martin del Potro said something about Roger Federer nine years ago. 

Yes, that’s it. NINE years ago, Del Potro gave a routine on-court interview and the the quotes have been produced as ‘news’ today. Wonderful.

In other ridiculously presented Roger Federer news, the same newspaper reports that he is ‘HUGELY’ (note: not ‘hugely’ – ‘HUGELY’) worried about losing his world number one ranking to Rafael Nadal.

“It would be nice to stay there but it’s no more important than that. But even if I don’t manage it, it’s not the end of the world.”

Can you just feel the anxiety dripping from his every word? No, nor us.

The ATP, meanwhile, have produced a really cool behind the scenes video about the Miami Open, which we highly recommend you take a look at.

What’s on social media
Serena Williams offered some perspective to herself and others following her early exit from the Miami Open.

Maria Sharapova, meanwhile, offered inspiration to anyone maybe considering doing a detox by showing us the full horrors it entails.

A change of career on the cards for Alexander Zverev?

And a very happy birthday to Boris Becker’s daughter Anna!

Happy birthday 🎂!!! #anna #18 #family
