Djokovic, De Minaur, Felix Lead 2020 Adelaide Field

Novak Djokovic and some of the world's best #NextGenATP players will launch the inaugural Adelaide International next month. Djokovic will be joined by Aussie Alex de Minaur and Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime at the ATP 250, to be held 13-19 January, the week before the Australian Open. Djokovic is a seven-time champion in Melbourne, a record, and usually does not play the week before a Grand Slam. The Serbian last played the week before a Slam in 2017, when he won the Nature Valley International title in Eastbourne. He has played the week before the Australian Open only once, in 2009, in Sydney. Djokovic played in Adelaide in 2007 when the tournament was held two weeks before the season's first major championship. But the 32-year-old could be going with a new strategy as he's also signed on to play at the inaugural ATP Cup, which will take place 3-12 January in Perth, Brisbane and Sydney. De Minaur won the 2019 Sydney International for his first ATP Tour title. The victory prop...

Roger Federer's Face To Go On Swiss Coin

Roger Federer fans can now have the Swiss legend with them at all times. Swissmint has created a 20-franc silver coin bearing Federer's image. It's the first time in its history that Swissmint has created a commemorative coin to honour a living person. Federer is perhaps Switzerland's most well-known individual, having won 103 tour-level titles, including 20 Grand Slam crowns and 28 ATP Masters 1000s. He has also spent a record 310 weeks at No. 1 in the ATP Rankings. The 38-year-old finished No. 3 in the 2019 year-end standings, marking the 15th time he's finished in the Top 3, which is a record. He also became the oldest player to end his season at No. 3. Off the court, the Swiss engages in philanthropic activity around the world with his self-named foundation, which he created in 2003. Federer has had other off-court commemorations as well. In 2012, the German city of Halle, where Federer is now a 10-time champion, named a street after the Swiss. In 2007, Swiss Post released a Roger ...

Nadal defeated Denis Shapovalov 6-3, 7-6(7) to clinch Spain’s 2-0 win against Canada. "It has been an amazing week," Nadal said on court after his win. "I could not be happier, honestly.
