"Murray Mania" grips many of the front pages.

A picture of Andy Murray sitting alone in a dressing room adorns the front of a commemorative edition of the Independent on Sunday.

The Sunday Times says a win by Murray against Roger Federer would put him among sport's richest names.

A leading agent tells the paper he thinks most of Murray's sponsorship deals probably have £1m bonuses written into the contract for a Wimbledon win.

Biggest match

"Andy Murray will become Andy MONEY," says the Daily Star Sunday. "Just do it Andy," says the Sunday Mirror.

According to the Sunday Express, the match will be watched by 20 million people and some tickets for Centre Court have sold for £32,000 a pair.

"There is something particularly thrilling about this moment," says the Mail on Sunday.

"We wish Andy Murray luck, strength and endurance - and victory - in the biggest match of his life."

Bank move

Bosses at Barclays Bank are to put pressure on Bob Diamond not to accept his full pay-off, according to the Sunday Telegraph.

The sum is said to be worth up to £17m to Mr Diamond who quit as chief executive over the Libor scandal.

The Sun says bosses at RBS plan to "kick UK staff in the teeth" by moving more of their work to India.

The paper says Britons will find it hard to understand why a bank they own is shipping so many jobs overseas.

Coalition tensions

According to the Observer, David Cameron's ability to keep his party united behind the coalition has been called into question by a joint letter.

Signed by nine former Conservative cabinet ministers, it urges Tory MPs to defy him on House of Lords reform.

The Sunday Telegraph claims senior Liberal Democrats will call on the prime minister to "bring his party to heel" over the reform.

It is a move the paper says will "further inflame coalition tensions".
