Tweets of the week: Venus’ birthday, Hewitt’s last Wimbledon, Federer wants popcorn

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.

Wasn’t this just yesterday?

Really, she’s still that same smiling girl…

A little time on the grass never hurt anybody…!

Another Wimbledon champ is reaching a bittersweet milestone…

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 = $$$  

Berdy’s making carrying bags look great.

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.

The cool kids are taking over tennis, one Drake fan at a time… (Does this make NK an honourary Canadian?)

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.

OMG CARO, OUT FOR DINNER NOT WITH SERENA??? :)Team Dinner in Eastbourne talking doubles tips 😉@CaroWozniackipic.twitter.com/LWkFkMIj0a — Petra Kvitova (@Petra_Kvitova) June 19, 2015

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.

3. You definitely can’t say he’s not self-aware.

Moving on, Roger asks and Roger receives. Bring on the popcorn, internet.

And finally, you cannot hide from PseudoFed…
