Five Point Friday

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

1.) Djokovic’s 46s Service Game

During his first-round match against teenager Jack Draper, Novak Djokovic hit four straight aces to win his service game in 46 seconds.

2.) Making the Most of a Wildcard

British wildcard and 18-year old Emma Raducanu, ranked No. 338, fought her way into round three, defeating No. 42 Markéta Vondroušová. Tomorrow, she’ll face No. 45 Sorana Cirstea for a spot in the fourth round.

3.) De Minaur Puts on Breaks

Alex De Minaur put on his usual display of speed with a twist last week when he barely managed to avoid hitting the net after tracking down a lob and somehow still won the point.

4.) An Intriguing Doubles Duo

Nick Kyrgios will fulfill a dream this week by playing mixed doubles with Venus Williams. He spoke about the partnership in his post-match press conference and looks forward to their first-round match today.

5.) Federer & Murray Practice

Going into Wimbledon, all eyes were on Federer and Murray when they hit the practice court. Neither of them could quite remember, but between the two, they figure their last practice was around 2005-2006.

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?
