Kyle Edmund set for singles opportunity in Davis Cup

Rather than take compliments, however, Andy was keen to find out what Benedict has been "up to".

Andy, 29, is playing in his third Wimbledon final against sixth seed Milos Raonic, who is known to be a big server. 2 has only the 12-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic ahead of him in the world tennis rankings.

Why? Because Raonic gave him one heck of a scare going up two sets to one before an adductor injury hindered his ability to move and he dropped the match in a tough five sets.

So when the Olympic tennis tournament starts on August 6 look for Raonic to have the opportunity to bring home the countries first Olympic singles tennis medal and just the second ever after Daniel Nestor and Sebastien Lareau won gold in men's doubles in 2000 at the Sydney Olympics.

"Andy has to look after his body and his mind".

Beverley-based Edmund, 21, is a former Pocklington Prep School pupil, who is now ranked 67th in the world.

Previously, his rival Novak Djokovic stated he was skipping the tie, leading to speculation being grown around the British number one's participation in the last eight meeting. "What's next for him is up to him", said Raonic, a 25-year-old Canadian who had never before participated in a Grand Slam final.

US Women's Olympic Gymnastics Team: Biles, Douglas,
Many gymnasts fudge their handstands, leaving them just shy of vertical, so they can be sure to swing back in the right direction. She has been a rock on that event for the past two years and she can give the team help in other places should the need arise.

Call it the Nadal Curse: Though he won men's singles gold at Beijing 2008, Nadal missed the London 2012 Games due to tendonitis.

Juan Martin del Potro, the 2009 US Open victor, is back in the Argentina squad after a four-year absence.

"He's played the three grass court challengers in the buildup".

"Thankfully, when we arrived on scene these two chaps were near the bank of the river underneath the bridge, and they both safely got out". When was the last time he had drunk like that?

The Czechs will miss their number one, eighth-ranked Wimbledon semi-finalist Tomas Berdych, while France will be led by 10th-ranked Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

After attending the official Champions' Dinner at the Guildhall in London, Murray and company headed for a nightclub, where the world No 2 set about contradicting the words of his autobiography, "Hitting Back", in which he had written: "I hate the taste of alcohol".

From where I sit in the cheap seats this is a shameful state of affairs in a nation that is apparently losing the will to live when it comes to participating in exercise, far less play a sport which is less expensive than most, including for example golf.
