Tennis Today: Roger Federer buys a 60s autobus and Venus Williams cheers up sister Serena
In Tennis Today, Roger Federer plans to travel Europe in an autobus after he retires while laughter is the best medicine for Serena Williams.
What’s on the site
In light of Kyle Edmund’s maiden ATP Tour trophy win, we look at five other British tennis stars’ first title wins.
The final ATP Masters 1000 event of 2018 is just around the corner, but Paris officials are still not sure if Roger Federer will play.
What’s in the news
As you will have read above, Edmund has ended his title duck. However, the match, or tournament for that matter, was not televised in the UK, much to Charlie Eccleshare’s despair.
He says in Telegraph Sport that it “win was a missed opportunity to inspire and engage fans”.
This week’s The Tennis Podcast focuses on on-court coaching, Edmund’s maiden title win, Wimbledon’s new final-set tie-breaker rule and the WTA Finals.
Federer has apparently “bought an old autobus from the 60s” and plans on using it to travel Europe once he retires, reports NZZ, via Express Sport.

After a rough weekend @Venuseswilliams came over and we shared a joke… I laughed… I realized I had not done so in 2 days. Take a min laugh, smile if you can. It makes a difference.
