Tennis badboy Nick Kyrgios makes his return

Nick Kyrgios is back in action todayon Centre Courtafter a controversial start to his tournament.

The Australian triumphed over the Greek world No.5 in one of the most spiteful matches ever seen at Wimbledon on Saturday with the pair repeatedly clashing with the umpire and each other.

Tsitsipas was hit with a £8,264 fine for hitting a ball into the stands which narrowly missed spectators while Kyrgios copped a £3304 for his antics.

That came after he was on top of his hefty first round fine of £8,211 for spitting on the court during his earlier win over Paul Jubb.

He will face 20-year-old American Brandon Nakashima on Centre Court today.

Sir Cliff had rewound the clock to sing ‘Summer Holidaya capella in the stands yesterday – some 26 years after he rose from his seat to entertain the crowd with an impromptu performance during a rain delay on July 3, 1996.

Goodbye to Manic Monday

Before the action starts at 11aman honourable mention to ‘Manic Monday’ – which actually no longer exists!

Traditionally Wimbledon paused on ‘Middle Sundaywith all third-round matches getting completed by Saturday.

This meant all 16 fourth-round playersboth men’s and women’stook to the court on Mondaywhich therefore became known as ‘Manic Monday’.

The reason for the Sunday break was required was to rest the grassand the playersahead of the business end of the tournament.

But modern technology has improved the courts to the point that they no longer need to have rest day.

And so last year was the final ‘Manic Monday’ 玛丽王妃明天将在温布利球场欢呼! 代替, the fourth round games have been spread between Sunday and today.
