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?

Nick Kyrgios himself is a sign times have changed, and veteran Tommy Haas apparently has no problem with that.
One quote from Tommy Haas which didn’t make it into my story but I liked, on how he identifies with Nick Kyrgios. pic.twitter.com/pbiM9nf5OC

Another young up-and-comer Belinda Bencic is pretty hilarious on Twitter on the regular, retweeting this about herself. Nice one, BB.
Bencic challenged this Lisicki serve and they both laughed. pic.twitter.com/Pyhmo5hw52

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…

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…
