In Tennis Today, so so many answers to questions no one actually asked.

What’s the most impressive thing you can do in 39 minutes? Probably best if we don’t ask for answers on a postcard for that one, but whitewashing Monica Seles is probably right up there.
Kyle Edmund has been a breakthrough year so far for new British number one Kyle Edmund, and he’s “super motivated” to take full advantage of it in clay court season.

Have you ever wondered who’d win in a battle of the sexes between Roger Federer and Serena Williams? No, nor us, but businessinsder.com have and they’ve put it to Quora users to try and crack the question.
They also cited John McEnroe’s opinion on the matter, so we kind of admire their guts if nothing else.
Philipp Kohlschreiber has bigger questions on his mind, though, as he prepares to face Rafael Nadal in the Davis Cup. How is he going to beat the world number one? He has revealed all.
Who was really to blame for the split between Novak Djokovic and Andre Agassi? One man close to the Serb has given his opinion.
And while we are on the subject of Djokovic (and needless questions being obsessively answered), how much is his net worth? $175million or so, apparently.
