Gather around everyone because it’s time to see what happened this past week on social media.

The battle against food has been happening since the dawn of time. Some people have self control, but if you’re like me… you don’t. The best way to defend this sort of attack is honestly just to be nowhere near the tasty substances.

Genie Bouchard pleaded with the organizers at Roland-Garros to take the delicious treats away before something bad happens. Can you blame her…

Fans are a major reason why athletes get to play a sport for fun because without their support the growth of a game doesn’t happen. Professionals should always take a bit of time for their supporters.

Denis Shapovalov is a perfect example of this. The 20-year-old attempted to sign autographs for hundreds of kids after a long match!

Madison Keys launched an initiative this week with the goal of eliminating toxic behaviour online and replacing it with kindness. The 24 year old and FearlesslyGirl kicked off #KinderGirlWorldDay on Tuesday to spread that message.

Numerous WTA players voiced their support on Twitter:

Rogers Federer is one of the greatest to ever pick up a racquet, but can anyone explain how he did this…

The only explanation I can come up with is magic.

The best way to enter a house after a long day is being greeted by a dog! Vasek Pospisil has a furry friend waiting to do that all the time 🐶.

I’m jealous.

Serena Williams filmed her daughter Alexis playing soccer and put a goal call over it… I need more of these videos in my life.

Getting back to pros spending time with fans, veteran Stan Wawrinka gave a group of children a shoutout on twitter.

The Swiss is right, nothing would be the same without the support of energetic individuals.

France has so much history and amazing architecture for people to see, so Victoria Azarenka made sure to get a nice picture before the Grand Slam begins.

World No. 1 Naomi Osaka had a similar idea when she touched down in Paris! Say cheese 😁!

Last year at Roland-Garros, Juan Martin del Potro made the semi-finals for the first time since 2009. He’s making sure to get his cardio in before hand to hopefully repeat that result or do even better.
