Social Slice: Nick Kyrgios has bragging rights over top three; Jenson Brooksby praise

On today’s Social Slice, Nick Kyrgios has bragging rights over the new top three and Jenson Brooksby receives praise from Andy Murray.

Firstly, following Rafael Nadal’s defeat to Lloyd Harris in Washington, Stefanos Tsitsipas will enter the top three for the first time alongside Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Perhaps bizarrely, Nick Kyrgios has a 6-0 record against the new top three, beating each player two times without defeat.

One player that has caught the attention in Washington this week is American talent Jenson Brooksby.

The 20-year-old, who was a finalist in Newport in July, has received huge attention after booking a semi-final spot, none more so than Andy Murray.

The American has had a breakthrough year, moving up over 200 places in the ATP rankings after his 6-1 6-2 victory against John Millman.

Simona Halep is finally set to make her return in Montreal after three months out.

The Romanian suffered a huge setback in Rome against Angelique Kerber, ruling her out of the French Open, Wimbledon and the Olympics.

Halep took to Twitter ahead of her comeback, stating that ‘it’s been more than a while’.

Whilst 36-year-old Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s career may be coming towards its end, the name looks set to stay in the sport after the Frenchman released a video of his son, Sugar, in training.

Looks like they both possess a huge forehand!
