Roland-Garros is almost over, which means players are getting ready for the grass season. Gather ’round everyone because it’s time to get into the best of tennis social media this week!
This is so adorable, we had to share. Genie Bouchard gave a fan the opportunity to rallying with her.. and the kid’s got some skill!
My 2 weeks in Paris were very enjoyable, and one moment stands out in particular. Little Michael came up to me everyday at Roland Garros to give me a hug. One day I saw him watching my practice and he asked if he could hit with me. This is the best part about my job!!! pic.twitter.com/fIZHhVKvWe

Milos Raonic should be back in action very soon as the grass season is around the corner. Similar to Toronto Raptors superstar Kawhi Leonard, the Canadian is a brand ambassador for New Balance. Another aspect he shares with Kawhi is being a ‘fun guy.’
The clay season didn’t go Denis Shapovalov’s way, but you know the Canadian will bounce back. He’s counting down the days for the grass season to begin.

I could only wish to go on amazing vacations like Bianca Andreescu. Let’s just say I’d book a trip to wherever she took this pic… but I can’t guess where she is!
Hands down the shot of the year by World No. 4 Dominic Thiem. The amount of surface he covered PLUS the tweener… wow just wow!
One of the best shots you'll see this year! 🔥🔥🔥

The main storyline for Roland-Garros on the women side has to be the sensation run by a pair of unheralded teenagers, one of which is Marketa Vondrousova, who made her first Grand Slam semi-final at the young age of 19!
The Czech is pretty excited about this epic run.
Have you ever wondered what makes World No. 1 Novak Djokovic tick? Well now you have your chance as he released the first episode of #NovakForReal. Great behind the scenes look of the Serbian’s mentality and his appreciation for the fans.

Belinda Bencic has a love-hate relationship with clay courts. Let’s just say the Swiss is ready to move on to grass 😆.

As many parents say about their kids, they grow up so fast 😥. It’s the same for the King of Clay Rafael Nadal as he turned 33 earlier in the week. Where has the time gone Rafa… where?!
Kiki Bertens was extraordinary in May, so much so the WTA named the Dutchwoman the player of the month. She followed that up with a cover appears on Holland Herald June edition.
