Here’s your roundup of the five most interesting things I’m enjoying or thinking about this week.
1.) Clijsters Return to Tennis at 36
This week, former world number one and four-time grand slam champion Kim Clijsters, announced she’s returning to tennis in 2020.
At age 36, after seven years away from the tour, how do you think she’ll fare against the tour’s dynamic field?

2.) The Only Water Bottle You Need
Whether you’re practicing or playing matches, staying hydrated on the court is a necessity. The challenge is having enough water to last, while also keeping it cold.
Enter the Huntr one gallon triple insulated stainless steel water bottle. It’s durable, easy to handle and clean, half the price of Yeti’s version, and my go-to pick.
3.) Nadal’s Critical Break Point
What looked to be a relatively straightforward US Open final for Nadal turned out to be a nearly 5 hour highly entertaining match against Medvedev – one of the summer’s hottest players.
My favorite point. Nadal’s break at two-all in the fifth set that pretty much summed up the match.

4.) Meet Roger Federer’s Stringer
Most players use local tournament stringers. Not Federer. He employs Ron Yu, a full-time stringer that follows him around the world, to keep his strings in tip-top shape.
Meet the man behind the strings and learn why Federer drops the cash.
5.) Top Players on The Ellen Show
I absolutely love any opportunity to catch the world’s top players outside of competition, and Ellen delivers.
Watch her funny segment that includes Federer, Osaka, Nadal, Halep, Djokovic, Keys, the Bryan brothers, and more!
