Tennis Today: Simona Halep’s Insta hacked, Nick Kyrgios pokes fun at Andy Murray, man smiles in photo
Tennis Today features Simona Halep, Nick Kyrgios, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic plus we have a story about a man smiling in a photo.
What’s on the site
If you have been living under a rock, then you probably won’t know that Andy Murray and Jamie Murray will team up at the Citi Open this week. Here is Jamie’s take on it.
The Murray brothers, though, will need to be at their best as they have been given a tough opener in Washington.
On the back of being inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame, we look at how “old woman” Li Na went where no other Asian player had gone before when she won the 2011 French Open.
There is still a lot of unhappiness over the revamped Davis Cup, but Gerard Pique is confident they will prove the naysayers wrong.
What’s in the news
Simona Halep’s Instagram was hacked over the weekend with The Sun EXCLUSIVELY revealing hackers tried to “scam her 1.3m followers out of £521million”.
Think of those “royals” sending you emails asking for help and then boom!
Here’s the message they posted: “Hey, can someone please help me out…? I am stuck in Switzerland and my bank account is not working here. In need of $500 (£400) willing to return $1500 (£1,200) by the weekend.
“I have a Zelle account! Venmo is not working here for some reason. Pls stop asking can I take Venmo … this is so embarrassing!”
Is it really an exclusive if it is being played out on social media?
Over to the Daily Mail and a man was seen smiling in photo!
Rafael Nadal and his fiancee Xisca Pellero had lunch with the former King and Queen of Spain over the weekend and the 18-time Grand Slam winner “was seen smiling in the photo and enjoying a chat with the royal pair”.
What’s on social media
Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic is to appear in a Hollywood documentary about nutrition and performance alongside F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan.
Performance is everything and it all begins with having the right kind of fuel in our bodies. I’m proud to be Exec Producer on The Game Changers. It’s a revolutionary new documentary movie and I can’t wait for you guys to see it this September: https://t.co/zYDCJtr3mH @GCmovie pic.twitter.com/OFGHMKgePu
