In Tennis Today, there is good news for Serena Williams after her Roland Garros woes as she joins Forbes’ annual list of the World’s Richest Self-Made Women while we have some Rafael Nadal birthday celebrations.

What’s on the site
Let’s start with some brilliant news from Andy Murray, who has confirmed he will make a comeback later this month.

Much like everyone else, Alex Corretja is excited about Murray’s “unbelievable news”.

Stan Wawrinka will look to continue his impressive form when he takes on Roger Federer in the quarter-final and James Spencer looks at Stan The Man’s incredible comeback and why Andy Murray should draw inspiration from the Swiss.

Then it’s only right that we share something about Federer and here is a Q&A with the 20-time Grand Slam winner ahead of the all-Swiss last-eight clash.

Johanna Konta will take on Sloane Stephens for a place in the French Open semi-final and Annabel Croft has assessed her chances.

The fallout from the Serena Williams-Dominic Thiem press conference debacle continues and tennis legends Boris Becker and Pat Cash have backed the Austrian.

How about another look at some of the Legends of Roland Garros? Here’s a bit of Justine Henin.

What’s in the news
It hasn’t gone according to plan for Serena Williams at Roland Garros, but there is good news for the 23-time Grand Slam winner as she is the first athlete to hit Forbes‘ annual list of the World’s Richest Self-Made Women.

Her fortune sits at an estimated $225 million.

Anna Tatishvili was fined $51,250 (£41,000) for performing “below professional standards” during her first-round exit at the French Open, reports The Guardian.

But it led to an interesting debate on social media with tennis coach Sven Groeneveld raising some good points.
