Merry Christmas From the Djokovics
Champions of Style
When the USTA Twitter account posted a throwback photo to the United States' 2003 Hopman Cup victory, James Blake's early career hair stole the show, getting noticed by many, including Blake himself.
My hair is gone, but Serena is still the greatest. That was such a fun week. Spending time with the GOAT is always a fond memory. https://t.co/A1FSK7IfK0— James Blake (@JRBlake) January 4, 2021
Andy Roddick, as usual, had thoughts as well.
"We gotta give credit to James," he said on Tennis Channel Live. "I'm still trying to hang onto every last bit [of hair], and it's this tragic state of affairs. James saw the writing on the wall and just went clean."
The stadium seats are empty at the WTA 500 event in Abu Dhabi, but that doesn't mean there are no viewers at all. Garbine Muguruza won her second-round match in front of a very excited fan:
