Daily Bagel: Dimitrov explored London with Sharapova and the ATP noticed
The Daily Bagel is your dose of the interesting reporting, writing and quipping from around the Internet.
• Grigor Dimitrov is busy in London. Not as an alternate at the ATP World Tour Finals (which he qualified as but turned down), but hanging out with Maria Sharapova as she does some press and sponsor work.
And the ATP noticed:
• Andy Murray finally showed up on the UK's Strictly Come Dancing to dance with his mother Judy, who is competing on the show this season.
• Does Angelique Kerber have a pressure problem? Vielleicht.
• People focus on Nishikori's speed, but what about the shot-making:
• Peter Bodo looks at the ATP Finals doubles field: Can the Bryans win for the first time since 2009?
• The IPTL isn't the only off-season tennis league in India: The Champions Tennis League is also a thing, which will feature Jelena Jankovic and Kevin Anderson after David Ferrer pulled out.
• Watch a time-lapse video of the court being laid down at the O2 Arena.
• Watch this awesome doubles point between Jean-Julien Rojer, Horia Tecau, Alexander Peya, and Bruno Soares at the ATP Finals:
