Tennis Today
Novak Djokovic pumped up

In Tennis Today, Novak Djokovic and Nick Kyrgios ‘fun’ as Serena Williams and Coco Gauff also feature.

What’s on the site
Money, money, money. Must be funny. In the rich man’s world. The US Open has upped its prize money for this year’s tournament.

Back to THAT Wimbledon final and Mats Wilander was unimpressed with Roger Federer’s playing it safe tactics when he was on match point.

One of the ATP’s young guns has issued a warning to Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.

There is a bit of a love-in between Simona Halep and Novak Djokovic going on after they won Wimbledon over the weekend.

What’s in the news
Stop Press! Novak Djokovic has liked an Instagram post in which John McEnroe criticised Nick Kyrgios’ mentality.

As you know by now, Djokovic and Kyrgios are the not best of buddies and an Instagram account used McEnroe’s quotes from the BBC in one of their posts.

Guess what?

That’s right, Djokovic liked it and Express Sport has the story for you as they go with “Novak Djokovic drops Nick Kyrgios hint following John McEnroe criticism”.

There is an exclusive with Billie Jean King in Telegraph Women’s Sport and she is delighted that “We’re having a second wave of sports activists. It’s in the air”.

“You have to keep speaking but most importantly you have to actively listen,” the tennis great said. “That’s if you want to be a great one that lasts. To have a lasting imprint not just a little shock one that has an impact for a day.”

Serena Williams was out and about again this time attending the “star-studded” Sports Illustrated Fashionable 50 gala and the Daily Mail is all over the story.

“Daring to impress, the Wimbledon queen flaunted her gym-honed arms in the tiny top as her gorgeous gams took center stage,” you know you want to read more.

This coincided with Serena being on the latest cover of Sports Illustrated’s 2019 Fashionable 50 issue.

There is good news for American sensation Coco Gauff as the teenager will compete at the Citi Open. Well, she will take part in qualifying with the hopes of reaching the main draw.

What’s on social media
Novak Djokovic would probably end up winning the Tour de France.

Life is beautiful for Simona Halep.

This is insane. How did I get to a point to deserve such a dedicated fan that they would get a tattoo of me on their body? If you told 8 year old me playing my first tournament that I would one day affect someone so much that they would permanently alter their body in my honour… I would not have believed it. And to have the chance to meet him in person! Michael told me I inspire him to do many things, like to go to work everyday, or sometimes even just to get up in the morning. Hearing this makes my heart the happiest it could ever be. Part of me also thinks you’re completely psycho Michael ?????? I hope you don’t regret this! And now you are forced to be a fan for life lmao
