Coaching news - Alexander Zverev has added David Ferrer to his coaching team on a trial basis.  Nice to see David has considered taking up coaching after his retiral from the Tour last year.

I'm sure David will be an asset to Zverev and we might see David a few times now.

Juan Martin del Potro is back in training and could possibly play a tournament before the end of the year, according to a report in Argentina - https://tennishead.net/juan-martin-del-potro-injury-comeback/

It would be great to see him on court again, so fingers crossed. Smile

Thanks Tonedial.   Ryan Peniston is playing really well against Kyle Edmund.  Experience might win out in the end, but he is really holding his own at the moment.

I've watched little bits of the WTA events in Palermo and now Lexington, and I'm quite impressed with how things have been run.

So far no ill effects surrounding the running of these events.

^I didn’t catch much of Palermo, but have enjoyed watching Lexington so far. Hoping Serena vs Venus is on at a good time for the UK tomorrow.

These are smaller events though and seem to be running well with no infection spread. Hopefully the bigger events can run in a similar fashion with no issues.
