Weekend Tennis Diary

Another active week for vacationing tennis players ...

First up: Nice to see Dennis Novak wish his, um, brother-in-law a happy birthday.

With the tour on winter break, I wondered why Neal Skupski and his real housewife girlfriend were jetting off to South Carolina ...

Turns out it was to attend Jack Sock's wedding, which by all appearances will likely turn out to be the SUPERSPREADER EVENT of the season. (Looking sharp though, Neal!)

Was cute to see Corentin Moutet on a French chat show ... until I realized he was discussing his new "album"(!!!!)

Alex Rybakov took Tommy Paul's mustache out for a spin in the harbor

Denis Shapovalov is now my favorite player ... thanks to Little Zeus!

Martin Nosko sure seems to know what he's doing here ...

Marton's bouncing bulge is causing quite a stir HERE.

Noah Rubin and his vet-in-training girlfriend are the ATP couple I'd most like to have dinner with

There's enough of Matteo Berrettini to go around ...

Vasek Pospisil finds yet another hot hitting partner ...

Everyone is excited about 18-year-old Lorenzo Musetti

Johnny O'Mara took this guy's virginity ...

Andy Seppi gets Rocky Mountain high

Jungle Boy Robert Farah

The hunky Colombian tied the knot ... but it looks like it was done in a pandemic-friendly way. Congrats!

Luca Pouille wishes David Goffin a happy birthday

Liam Broady's legs are why I have to view every Instagram story ...

P.S. After hearing that Roger Federer was looking good to compete next year Down Under, now we're being told that isn't the case:

Federer, who turns 40 in August next year, hasn't competed since losing to Novak Djokovic at the 2020 Australian Open. The winner of 20 Grand Slam singles titles said in October he was practicing pain-free and expected to return to the circuit at the first Grand Slam of the year. 

"I would love to be in Australia. But it will be very tight with my knee. I don't want to take the next step until I'm ready. These three weeks might help me a bit. The summer with Wimbledon , the Olympics and the U.S. Open is my priority," local media quoted Federer as saying late on Sunday at an awards ceremony in Switzerland. 

Not entirely surprising but disappointing to hear nonetheless.
