Here's a round-up of your favourite athletes and what they've been up to.
Christmas is just around the corner and the top tennis stars are making sure that they make most of this Yuletide Spirit! Apart from the ATP taking the resposnibilty to get together the big-shots to sing Jingle Bells in a fun video, where they are all decked up in Christmassy clothes, the stars have also started preparing for Christmas and some are chilling out and enjoying this off-season! With the social media acting as a boon we can always be up to date with what these players are up to even when they are not on the court!
December is one such month which spells joy for the young and the old. The infectious spirit of Christmas is generally viral as soon as the cold gushes of air starts unsettling us and this holds true, for the tennis stars as well. It spells holiday season for them too and they know how to get the feels right! Let’s have a look at what they are busy doing in this festive season!
Romanian player Simona Halep, who is currently the World Number 4, has made an early start in decking up for Christmas! This picture with her family is so endearing and the snowy white Christmas tree in the background is the perfect match for keeping up with the Yuletide spirit!
Andreas Seppi – feat. Novak Djokovic
Yes, it might be off-season still but it seems like Seppi and Djokovic cannot resist the lure of the court anymore. In this video, they go head to head across the net and break into a volley lasting more than 20 shots.Playing in the warm Monte Carlo Country Club, the duo have the blast of their time playing for fun, against each other while chilling out in the Mediterranean heat.
Lucas Pouille – feat. Roger Federer
Not to be left off the bandwagon, Swiss great Roger Federer and Lucas Pouille too, did a little bit of pre-season warming up. They caught up each other in Dubai and had a pretty good session as Pouille, instagrammed. Federer, who had taken an early retirement from this season will be back in 2017 to charm us once again and we can already see him enjoying the off-season time to the fullest!
Novak Djokovic – feat. Shakira (well, sort of....)
Trust Djokovic to come up with the quirkiest ways to jazz away his off-season time! In a recent Instagram video, Novak is shown dancing away with a group of other women at a dance session, and boy, can be shake those hips!(Think Shakira, yes!)
The other dancers seem to blur out in his presence and he is quite the sport and aces all the steps so smoothly that it’ll be very hard believe that he is the World Number 2 in tennis and not some pro dancer, swinging his hips with gusto and drawing envious glances from the his co-dancers!
Among other joyous things abounding in this season, Flavia Pennetta added to the merriment by announcing the news of her pregnancy. She posted a picture on Instagram with her husband, standing in front of a decked up Christmas tree setting the right tune for the festive season!
