Tennis Today: Kyle Edmund gets a ‘present’ from Roger Federer, ‘introvert’ Simona Halep opens up
In Tennis Today, Roger Federer gave Kyle Edmund a nice birthday “present” during a practice match while Simona Halep opens up during an interview.
What’s on the site
Sixteen years after the death of Peter Carter, Roger Federer admits he still misses his former coach “so much” and “hopes he would be proud”.
Rafael Nadal returned to action after his latest injury, admitting that he needs to find “a little bit more rhythm”.
Staying on the injury front and Alexander Zverev suffered a scare ahead of the Australian Open as he was forced to pull out of the World Tennis Challenge.
Sometimes you have to catch up on some lost sleep no matter where you are. That’s exactly what Benoit Paire did during his second-round match at the ASB Classic in Auckland.
In the battle of the Australian bad boys, Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic will square off at the Kooyang Classic on Wednesday.
Staying with Tomic, the world No 85 is not a fan of the new balls that will be used at the Australian Open.
What’s in the news
The Telegraph has an exclusive with Caroline Wozniacki about how she wants to “inspire other rheumatoid arthritis sufferers”.
The Guardian’s Donald McRae has a great interview with “introvert” Simona Halep who reveals “how winning her first grand slam finally lifted the pressure on her shoulders and allowed her to relax as a person”.
“Now I’ve won a grand slam and I start to enjoy life more. I like to go out, make friendships. I’m more open.”
What’s on social media
It’s Kyle Edmund’s birthday and here is his “present” from Roger Federer.

As David Law points it, it’s not Federer shouting “happy birthday”, but he was still the man delivering the “present”.
Actually it might be Ljubicic that said it.
