In Tennis Today, Wimbledon organisers are set to submit an insurance claim of more than £100 million while Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer reveal their latest #stayhome videos.

What’s on the site
Day 1,030,000 of lockdown/quarantine/self-isolation, but we are here to keep your spirits up with some news from the tennis world.

Let’s start with something that is not related to the “c” word. So how about we continue with our Top 10 countdown of the greatest tennis players of all time. You have to click on the link to find out who is No 4. Yes, we are in a teasing mood today.

How about some entertainment provided by Judy Murray as she stars in a “Duncan Murray” spoof video.

Now for some serious news, Wimbledon chairman Richard Lewis admits there is a chance that “there may be no more tennis this year”.

And here are your reactions from the likes of Serena Williams, Roger Federer, Andy Murray and more about the Wimbledon cancellation.

There is good news for fans who purchased tickets for this year’s Wimbledon.

Will we see Roger Federer playing competitive tennis next year? Well, he has already signed up for one grass-court tournament for 2021.

What’s in the news
And the award for the longest headline of the day goes to the Daily Mail.

“Wimbledon organisers set to net £100MILLION insurance payout after taking out infectious diseases cover following 2003 SARS outbreak, with tournament now cancelled because of coronavirus”.

We don’t think we actually need to read the story after that headline/summary.

The original story came from The Times (subscription).

What’s on social media
Rafael Nadal is upping his beard game.
