Tennis Today: WTA star hailed in prestigious list and Denis Shapovalov shows off musical talent

Madison Keys celebrates

In Tennis Today, Denis Shapovalov shows off his hip-hop talents, and a young WTA star is identified as the game’s top up-and-comer.

What’s on the site
Novak Djokovic has basically fanboyed out to the news that Cristiano Ronaldo watched his match at the ATP Finals in London.

In fairness, we would to! You can read his reaction to it right here.

For those eager to keep up-to-date with how Andy Murray is shaping up for the new season, an essential must-watch video has been posted from his training camp. In short, he looks bloody fantastic.

And the Australian Open have responded to allegations that they give Roger Federer preferential treatment by not only confirming it but passionately defending it.

What’s in the news
Madison Keys has been honoured by being named on Forbes’ 2019 Sports 30 under 30 list.

The list hails athletes from all sports, who are all under 30, who are considered to be the next generation of ‘influencers’.

On Keys, they wrote: “Madison Keys is part of the impressive post-Serena Williams wave of American women tennis players climbing through the game’s ranks.

“She in the top ten of the world rankings, the first American woman to do so since Williams, and has already finished in the top four at a major four times in her young career.

“Keys also does advocacy with anti-bullying group Fearlessly Girl.”

Elsewhere, Lucas Pouille has given a candid interview in which he has confessed that his off-court antics are holding his career back.

“I haven’t had the right mindset and the right attitude all the time. When you don’t play well in tennis, it’s the right attitude that gets you out of the hole,” Pouille revealed during an exclusive interview with Le Figaro.
