In tennis today, Sloane Stephens announced some joyous news, but there could be more struggles on the horizon for one of the unluckiest players on the tour.

What’s on the site
Alexander Zverev is struggling at the worst possible time for him. He is hemorrhaging ranking points right now, but fear not, as he believes he is very close to clicking back into gear.

Zverev is favourite to successfully defend his Munich title this week, but our betting expert isn’t backing him. Find out where best to invest your money right here.

Who are you backing to end up with more Grand Slam titles? Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer? One former ATP star has had his say.

In the brilliantly wacky world of the WTA meanwhile, Naomi Osaka has joined what looks like being a very strong field for the Nature Valley Classic this June.

What’s in the news
Sloane Stephens is to marry footballer boyfriend Jozy Altidore, it has been confirmed.

The couple, who were childhood friends, have been dating since 2016.

“She is somebody who gets everything I am going through without having to say anything,” Altidore said a year ago about their relationship.

“You look at each other and you kind of know right away if one of you is annoyed.

“She just kind of gets the mood I’m in, as obviously she lives a very similar kind of life.

“In that regard it works really well, there is no stress. She is a successful athlete and I do OK, and we just enjoy our time together when we are together.”

Elsewhere, Milos Raonic seems to have once again been struck down by his injury curse.

The Canadian was looking much more like his old self again recently, but will be forced to miss Madrid and Rome due to a knee injury.

No word ye as to whether is French Open is in jeopardy.

Caroline Wozniacki was keen to remind us that Sloane Stephens and Jozy Altoridore are not the only power couple in sport.

If Borna Coric was attempting the same, he probably missed the mark. However, his picture is definitely the cutest.
