With only a few weeks to go, it is almost illegal to not be excited about the Olympics. By the middle of June, local councils will order us all to meet in our local park at 6.30 each morning and say communally, "Oooh, it's only a month to the opening ceremony" and recite the competitors in the first heat of the 200-metres backstroke.

It took Agnieszka Radwanska 17 years to decide that her father, Robert, was not the best man to be her full-time travelling coach.

It is four years since Maria Sharapova last won a Grand Slam title, but with every passing week the 24-year-old Russian is proving that her hunger for success remains undiminished.
