When Wimbledon is on the horizon, it feels like there’s extra emphasis on the legends of the game. This week, five-time Wimbledon champion and former world No. 1 Venus Williams celebrated her 35th birthday, making us kind of incredulous and nostalgic at once.

Nick Kyrgios himself is a sign times have changed, and veteran Tommy Haas apparently has no problem with that.
Maria’s doing a great job of mixing tradition with a fresh look here.
I really just enjoy that Judy keeps referring to Feliciano Lopez as ‘Deliciano’. NEVER CHANGE JUDMOO!
In case you forgot, tennis = $$$

Lindsay is defo not undercover as Madison’s coach this week!
Another young up-and-comer Belinda Bencic is pretty hilarious on Twitter on the regular, retweeting this about herself. Nice one, BB.

Tennis players, they’re just like you. (Traffic forced Nico onto transit to make his match in time!)
I relate to this in SO many ways.
New fact: If you can do the splits, you can beat Nadal.

Djoker also falls into the splits-doing, Nadal-beating category, but he’s mostly chilling with the fam right now. Looking good…
Franckie’s hiding from her own selfie, but if you want to see more of her, she’ll be repping for Canada at the Pan Ams in Toronto this summer!
Another player we’re hoping we’ll see more of really soon is Delpo, who’s been posting some equal parts heartbreaking and heartwarming news lately…
Speaking of coming back from injuries… we are very excited about Ms. Robson’s return to court! Side note: Caro AGAIN not with Serena…

Vika Beckham Jr. will beat you at all the sports.
This is a doubles team we’d love to see on the regular…
And now for a series of true LOL moments: 1. Stan, incredible.
2. Petko, I am sold.
