Novak Djokovic is joining forces with Andre Agassi in an effort to return to No. 1. Djokovic announced Sunday that Agassi will coach him at the French Open, which starts next Sunday. ''I spoke to Andre the last couple weeks on the phone, and we decided to get together in Paris,'' Djokovic said.
One of the highlights of the Met Gala earlier this month was, undoubtedly, Serena Williams making her first red carpet appearance since announcing she was pregnant. The tennis icon looked resplendent in emerald satin Versace, and ever since then, we've been eager to see what would come next in terms of Williams' maternity style. In addition to working with one of the greatest athletes of all time, McLeod has a roster of major NBA players, including Chris Bosh (Miami Heat), Andre Iguodala (Golden State Warriors), and Serge Ibaka (Toronto Raptors).
When the ATP Race standings were updated this week Andy Murray, the world No. 1, languished down at 13th. Unlike the actual world ranking that is a rolling 12-month points total, the Race standings are a gauge of form since January when everybody starts on zero. With the French Open starting on Sunday, Murray has accrued 1,210 to the 4,915 of Rafael Nadal and looks a pale imitation of the player who won his last 24 matches of 2016 to knock Novak Djokovic off his pedestal and seize power in men's tennis. Not since Pete Sampras in 1999 has a world number one had a worse start to a year with Murray's win percentage at a fairly modest 70.8 percent—a figure that actually disguises just how bad the slump has become of late.
