Ashleigh Barty has announced her retirement. She's 25, she's the current World number one ranked player and has been for almost three years, she's the former French Open champion, she's the reigning Wimbledon champion and she won the Australian Open only a couple of months ago.

Funnily enough I was talking to my 15 year old the other day about the sacrifice needed to be an elite sports star, the cycle of training, food you can't eat, living with pain, endless travel, missing out on other parts of life, and Barty seems to be someone who has decided shes reached her goals and had enough.

Fair play, she can say shes been the best, she's earned plenty, good luck to her.

Andy Murray is remarkable. Without doubt he was already one of Britain's greatest sports stars, but he still continues to prove his skill and determination even after the hip replacement.

Just beaten The World number 16 at the Madrid open and set up a quarter final against his old mate Novak.

"He's the world number one and I've got a metal hip," world number 78 Murray told Amazon Prime. "I didn't know I'd get opportunities to play matches like this again. In theory I shouldn't have a chance in the match.

Surely he can't?

Anyone else think that Iga Swiatek (#1 seed in the women’s singles at the French Open) looks like Mark Noble’s love child?

Nadal wins another slam! 22 and counting. Will he make it to 25+?!

Depends if they can wheel out stronger and stronger (performance enhancing) drugs to hold him together. He is a walking chemical experiment.

No.

He'll need to take more and more anti-inflammatory. Something he has said he will not continue with.

That was a thoroughly entertaining game.

It's going to be some match that tops that this year.
