"For a few years my life was just tennis. After a while that can be stressful. When things are going on away from the court, you have a distraction from tennis. I think it will help me on the court.”

5) DANCING FOR DIEGO MARADONA

The Globe Soccer Awards are back in Dubai this December and, aptly, Argentina legend Diego Maradona was on hand to announce that his compatriot Lionel Messi will be in attendance.

"Kohli would do well to take a leaf out of Ravi Shastri’s book on how criticism can be a catalyst to bring improvement. In fact, I'm surprised that the team director has not shared his experiences yet."
