Since becoming the World No. 1 Andy Murray is yet to lift a major title. With him being the No. 1 seed, expectations would be higher.

Since 2008, Murray has not lost before the last eight in back to back quarter finals so he has to get his act together in Paris for the tournament in the last week in May. After crashing out early in Australia – in the fourth round to MischaZverev – he would need a good turn out this time around.

In recent events, popular British tennis player Andy Murray defeated his American opponent John Isner to secure his top spot on the ATP list.

Murray won his first ever Paris master title and is currently celebrating his rise to the sport’s number one position as he secured his victory in a particularly tough showdown against Isner. The match had a score line of 6-3 6-7(4-7) 6-4 bringing the talented player his sixth ATP title in a remarkable 2016.

The 29-year old Scot has added his second Wimbledon and Olympic titles on his journey to the very top of the ranking. Murray has been officially confirmed as the first singles number 1 from Britain ever since the ranking in the sport was computerized back in 1973.

Being a truly well deserved rise to the top, the tennis star’s ascent was confirmed after it became apparent that fellow player Milos Raonic would be unable to participate in the semi final rounds due to a leg injury that resulted in a withdrawal for the tournament. Read more »

Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova – Most talking point

Normally the young people feel that if you are in romantic relationship with someone and you are quite well settled professionally, you should get married to your partner, otherwise, the relationship starts getting soured as the insecurities come in and a lot of other things happen as well.

It’s a good theory. Obviously, if you love someone, you would want to spend your life with that person, but, there is a celebrity couple which has shown that a relationship can be carried on successfully without marriage as well.

Yes, your guess is right. It’s the pair of Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova which is being talked about.

It’s one of the coolest pairs in the world and the amazing thing about this pair is that it has often stayed away from controversies.

Thirteen years have gone by since these two had got committed to each other. It’s a very long time for the two celebrities to stay together.

And, it’s not that Enrique happens to be with Anna all the time. He has to travel overseas a lot with his work, still, the things are alright and the relationship is going strong.

Enrique credits Anna for making sure that the relationship between the two goes smoothly.

The singer reckons he could not have got a better girl friend than the Russian beauty queen.

And, the pair still is in no hurry to take the relationship to another level i.e. to become husband and wife.

They seem to be very happy the way they are right now.

According to Enrique, what’s important is the amount of love that is there in the relationship. It does not matter that much if the two are married or not.

Enrique is 39 years of age at the moment, while, Anna is 33.
