1.) Murray & Djokovic Going Live
Andy Muray and Novak Djokovic announced they’ll be going live together on Instagram and answering fan-submitted questions today at 10 am PT and 1 pm ET. Be sure to ask a question, tune in, and say hello.
Cori Gauff achieved a meteoric rise in the tennis world with fame and pressure coming at her fast. In this week’s Behind the Racquet, she shares her struggle with depression and how she considered “taking a year off to just focus on life.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has put a financial strain on industries across the globe, and tennis is no different.

In total, the USTA says there’s $50M planned to support the US tennis ecosystem. The British Lawn Tennis Association has committed $25M and the French Tennis Federation $39M.
