Featured Video (above): 5 Key Questions to Ponder for the 2017 Tennis Season

1. Earlier in the week, Roger Federer took his turn on the bongos at Hopman Cup. Last night it was Belinda Bencic, and she did not disappoint. Is it possible that Bencic might be having TOO MUCH fun at Hopman Cup? Nah.

2. Alizé Cornet has mad respect for Elina Svitolina’s consistency. In fact, she claims that the Ukranian has not made an unforced error since before she was born. No matter: Cornet will face Pliskova (who defeated Svitolina last night) in the Brisbane final.

3. Sabine Lisicki will miss the Australian Open for the first time since the 2011 Australian Open. Her streak of 23 consecutive Slams will come to an end due to a shoulder injury.



After playing one of my favorite tournaments 8 years in a row I won't be able to compete at the Australian Open this year. I will miss being down under a lot! At the moment I have to take care of my shoulder injury. I'm determined to get back to full strength on the court and I will keep you posted on my progress. I appreciate all the love and support from my fans! ❤ Nach 8 Jahren in Folge, werde ich zum ersten Mal in meiner Karriere bei einem meiner Lieblingsturniere, den Australian Open, nicht spielen können. Ich werde alles dafür tun, schnellstmöglich meine Schulterverletzung auszukurieren und alles reinlegen, um bald wieder mein bestes Tennis zeigen zu können. Vielen lieben Dank für all eure Unterstützung!!❤

4. Sascha Zverev DID NOT WANT TO DANCE, but he was a good sport and did some Petko dancing for couples during the Hopman Cup.

5. Hang on a second, somebody get us a fan and a glass of water before we watch the below video. It has 13K retweets and counting, and parental guidance is suggested.

6. Heather Watson rocks out on the drumkit, quite nicely, might we add.

7. Last but not least—Ana Ivanovic out for a winter’s walk. She’s missed.
