(Middle) Sunday Slice: Federer’s Centre Court return, Berrettini back to training
In other social media highlights this weekend, Nick Kyrgios gets the last laugh—via emoji—as Matteo Berrettini shares some good news and Roger Federer steals the show at Wimbledon.
Published Jul 03, 2022
Wimbledon was celebrating the 100-year anniversary of Centre Court, and they pulled out all the stops to mark the occasion with a star-studded ceremony.
Emceed by Sue Barker and John McEnroe, the Centennial featured a parade of current and former champions from Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal to Venus Williams and Chris Evert, Rod Laver to Billie Jean King, and, of course, Federer himself with an unforgettable entrance.
The Ukrainian took to social media to wish her countrywoman Marta Kostyuk a speedy recovery.
The 20-year-old suffered a gruesome ankle injury during Wimbledon doubles with Tereza Martincova, that resulted in a full tear of one ligament and partial tears to multiple others.
Kostyuk, who had reached a career-high No. 49 ranking earlier in the season, had to withdraw from mixed doubles with Lucasz Kubot and several upcoming tournaments as a result.
Great news, Berrettini fans: The Italian announced on Instagram that he’s back to full health and already back in training after testing positive for COVID-19 last week at Wimbledon.
Berrettini will be looking to keep his grass-court momentum as he gets an early start on the hard-court season. Having been sidelined for three months after undergoing right hand surgery in March, Berrettini demolished the competition in the build-up to The Championships, lifting the trophy in Stuttgart and retaining his Queens Club crown.
Nick Kyrgios & Stefanos Tsitsipas
Now what could this be about?
Kyrgios had quite a lot to say after tempers flared during his third-round match with Stefanos Tsitsipas on Saturday, and both players traded barbs in the press room afterward. But a day later, the Aussie kept things simple as he returned to social media.
Could it have been in response to this post by Tsitsipas, which is captioned with the same quote that Kyrgios recently tattooed on his left calf? Maybe we’ll never know.
