Nick Kyrgios' travel woes

The world seems to be suffering some post-pandemic airport chaos right now, and even Wimbledon finalists can't avoid it.

Nick Kyrgios had the best two weeks of his career so far in London this summer, but he had to sleep on an airport floor in Toronto due to flight delays.

To make matters worse, he seems to have lost his luggage too.

Kyrgios's girlfriend Costeen Hatzi shared images on her Instagram story alongside the caption: "The reality of delayed flights and lost luggage."

No more details were shared, but judging by the fury Kyrgios directs at a line-judge who makes a mistake we would not have enjoyed being the airport official who dealt with the situation!

Nadal suffered an abdominal tear in the quarterfinal against Taylor Fritz and was forced to withdraw.

He has since gone on holiday to get some downtime and has been photographed on jet skis and beaches, but it was his dancing that really caught the internet's attention.

Emma Raducanu an 'inspiration'

Emma Raducanu has had to get used to being the poster girl for British tennis, and it is something she does exceptionally well.

She heads to the US now looking to defend her US Open title, but she is still 'inspiring' people back home in the UK too.

“What Emma achieved last year was incredible," Katie Swan told the BBC. "The fact that she was able to do that, it really inspired a lot of us and made us believe that something like that was possible.

“The grass season always seems to be a time where everyone always enjoys themselves, likes playing in front of a home crowd and kind of all spurring each other on.

“We all train together as well so if you see one of your mates that you train with start doing well in an event you start to believe if they’re doing it why can’t I do that as well. It’s like a snowball effect.”
