HEAD's latest player to player questions series featured Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Richard Gasquet asking Maria Sharapova questions they were dying to know. To be honest, I'm not sure Djokovic was really dying to know what Maria's favourite Sugarpova candy was, but thankfully Andy Murray livens things up. Check it out!

A big congrats is in order to Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic for their Miami titles. This is the last big hard court tournament for a while as we move onto clay. Djokovic will hope his win over Rafael Nadal is a sign of things to come.
I've always liked the photos the Sony Open takes of their champions. I fondly remember Andy Murray running with seagulls along the beach a few years back. Serena looks gorgeous, but Novak really took his photoshoot to the next level. Nice undies, Nole! Enjoy.
We knew they weren't the best of friends, but I don't think any of us imagined that Andy Roddick once had Novak Djokovic pushed up against a locker at the US Open! Sounds like things would have become more physical if Roddick hadn't realised Djokovic's trainer was the size of a truck. I just wish this was all caught on camera... it's probably about as violent as tennis gets!
Have you ever wondered who your favourite player would be if they were a Hollywood actor or rock star? Tennis players get asked from time to time who they'd chose to represent them in a movie, but often the person they pick is who they admire most, not who resembles them. So here at OnTheGoTennis we have decided to answer these burning questions once and for all.
Y'all wondered where Maria Sharapova was last time we did this. Well, we have her perfect match...
Ok, maybe not the perfect match... but both Gwyneth Paltrow and Maria lead pretty enviable lives. Perfect blonde hair? Tick. Stunning figure? Tick. Wonderful home life? Tick. Successful career? Tick. Humblebragging down to a fine art? Absolutely.
Serbian news outlets are reporting that one of our favourite tennis couples is tying the knot! After dating for eight years it is believed that Novak Djokovic proposed to Jelena Ristic in Monte Carlo. Novak's mum confirmed the news saying,
I swear there is more bitchiness in men's tennis than women's. Ernests Gulbis, who has just helped send Latvia to World Group I for Davis Cup 2014, has given his thoughts on Novak Djokovic.
Ernests and Novak used to be friends; Ernests once even said Novak inspired him to work harder. The two used to hang out as juniors before Novak got really good. Ernie, as we all know, kept on partying.
According to a French website and translated by @Nole1989, Ernests has said he no longer likes Novak.
"I don't like Djokovic that much. We know each other since I'm 12. He was a normal guy then, but since his first big success he changed, his eyes changed. We never fought, but I felt he changed because of success. And I don't like people like that. I like strong characters that don't change because of success or money. That's why I be careful not to change myself".
It sounds like a bit of jealousy might be the case here... or perhaps it's like when your friend gets a new boyfriend and suddenly they never come out partying and are so not fun anymore. Regardless, Novak has clearly changed for the good of his tennis career and Ernie... hasn't. Oh well, he's still cute right?!
EDIT: A big thank you to the commenter below who found most of the interview here. Here are some more highlights from the interview, where he talks about Federer, Wawrinka, money, girls, money and more money!
