Five Point Friday

Here’s your roundup of the five most interesting things I’m enjoying or thinking about this week.

1.) Sharapova Retires at 32

After 19-years on the pro tour, former world No. 1, Maria Sharapova, is hanging up her racquet. Throughout her career, she compiled an impressive 645-171 record, including 36 titles and five Grand Slam trophies.

2.) Nadal’s Fierce Forehands

During his Alcapulco match against Serbian and world #50 Miomir Kecmanovic, Rafa unleashed three brutal down the line forehands that would demoralize just about any player.

3.) My Tennis Life: Season 4

This season, My Tennis Life follows Monica Puig and Jamie Murray, giving fans an inside look into their lives. Each year the TennisChannel keeps tabs on two players, and if you haven’t seen them, they’re fun ultra-short videos.

4.) Kevin Anderson’s Knee Surgery

During off-season training in December, Anderson injured his right knee, which scans would later show was a medial meniscus tear. This week, he had surgery to repair the damage. In September of last year, he had surgery on the same knee.

5.) Kyrgios Booed Off Court

Nick Kyrgios was back in Alcapulco, Mexico, to defend his 2019 title, but during his first-round match against Ugo Humbert, he had to retire due to a wrist injury. The crowd didn’t take kindly to it and booed him – Kyrgios wasn’t too happy about it during his press conference.

If you have a moment, I’d love to hear your feedback. Which topic is your favorite? What would you like to see more or less of each week?
