Novak Djokovic blows a kiss to crowd

In Tennis Today, Novak Djokovic faces a fine, the Andy Murray Wimbledon rap is something else and a lip reader reveals what Kate said to Meghan.

What’s on the site
Novak Djokovic is on top of the world again after winning a fourth Wimbledon title.

Here is your picture gallery from the 2018 Wimbledon gentlemen’s final.

And in case you missed Saturday’s events, Angelique Kerber downed Serena Williams to win her first title at SW19.

Going a bit further back to the marathon semi-final between Kevin Anderson and John Isner, the match may well be a game-changer for Wimbledon as they could change to fifth-set tie-breakers.

However, Michael Graham says Marathon matches hugely enrich Grand Slams and should remain.

Back to Djokovic and he is pretty happy to have had “an opportunity to rise like a phoenix and evolve and get better“.

What’s in the news
Legendary tennis coach Nick Bollettieri, writing in The Independent, says “Novak Djokovic’s latest triumph proves me right – he’s the closest we’ve seen to tennis perfection”.

Twelve months after guiding Johanna Konta to the Wimbledon semi-final, Wim Fissette was watching a player under his tutelage lift the Venus Rosewater Dish. Unfortunately for British fans it was Angelique Kerber and not Konta.

Telegraph Sport’s Simon Briggs tells us how “quiet achiever” Fissette became “Kerber’s ace in the pack”.

Illegal broadcasting of tennis matches through live streams is a major concern for governing bodies. The Independent reports the “multi-million dollar operation” is “highly damaging for tennis”.

The Sun says Djokovic could be fined “after allegedly telling crowd to ‘shut the f*** up’ during final”.

“Muzzarenka” didn’t win the Wimbledon mixed doubles title, but we could see a lot more of Jamie Murray and Victoria Azarenka in future, says Telegraph Sport.

If you wanted to know more about the discussion between Novak Djokovic and the Duke of Cambridge after the Wimbledon final, then the Daily Mail has you covered.

And yet more in the Daily Mail about the who’s who in the Royal Box for the men’s singles final.

More on the royal conversations from Wimbledon, The Sun says “Kate Middleton has revealed she is battling to get a good night’s sleep”.

But if you thought someone overheard the Duchess of Cambridge uttering that sentence to the Duchess of Sussex, then you wide off the mark.

“Lip readers easily picked up the conversation between the two Royals”.
