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.
