Upon hearing the news that Novak Djokovic and Goran Ivanisevic are not longer working together after a successful six year run, the internet and social media was buzzing with theories on who Djokovic's next coach will be.

Andy Roddick made a valid point that Djokovic would be apt to go with someone he knows well given the time of year and the need to begin preparations for Roland Garros. Those possible candidates include Marian Vajda, Andre Agassi, and Boris Becker.

That didn't stop the internet from suggesting that Roger Federer could be Djokovic's next coach. It seems plenty of people are enamored by the idea, and Federer's cryptic tweet that is most likely unrelated piqued even more curiosity.

Djokovic is not the only player subjected to internet speculation; Karolina Muchova is also.

Tennis fans have missed Karolina Muchova. A right wrist injury sustained last fall required surgery in February 2024 so Muchova has been sidelined for months. That did not stop her name coming up in endless speculation over an excerpt from actress Rebel Wilson's upcoming memoir Rebel Rising scheduled for release on April 2, 2024.

Wilson writes about a female tennis player with whom she had what she called a "situation-ship." She admitted that her feelings were so intense that they cracked open her heart to the point that she was wiling to give up her career and travel the tennis circuit with this person.

Wilson did not name the tennis player, but social media seems fairly confident that it is Muchova. People went so far as to pull up photos and posts of Wilson at Muchova's matches. Muchova appears to be a private person off-the-court and has not addressed the rumors.

Wilson is now engaged to partner Ramona Agruma, and the pair welcomed a child via surrogate in November 2022.
