Did you know it’s been over a year since a British player won an ATP Tour singles title?
Yes? Well, okay smarty-pants. But do you also know the story of how Jeremy Bates ended a 17-year famine for British tennis? Feast your eyes.

The world number one, fresh from winning the Monte Carlo Open last week, is making fine progress in Barcelona, where he has already powered into the quarter-finals.
We also have a wrap of all all things WTA here.

What’s in the news
Serena Williams is always great value whenever she speaks and she’s been outdoing even her own usual amazing standards this week.
She’s been sharing her experiences of motherhood and maternal healthcare, and it’s a wonderful read.
And, as if that wasn’t enough, Serena also has issued some royal wedding advice to Meghan Markle!
In less uplifting, heart-warming news, Rafael Nadal’s Barcelona Open quarter-final opponent Martin Klizan has issued a ‘warning’ to the Spaniard.
It sounds dramatic, but it’s not. The ‘warning’ is that Nadal is a human being, which we’re pretty sure everyone already knew.
What’s on social media
Being Serena premiered this week, and the woman herself looked stunning for the occasion.
Speaking of stunning women if the WTA, Simona Halep is a cover girl.
We were offered a simply wonderful Roger Federer throwback Thursday!
And a happy belated birthday day Miami Open champion John Isner! 33 years young yesterday.
