If you’re a fan of Argentine star Juan Martin del Potro, you know César, his big, furry Newfoundland.
You couldn’t draw up a more perfect player-dog pairing.
Sadly, César has gone to the great kennel in the sky.
“I will miss you very much, faithful companion. You accompanied me in these almost 10 years, you waited for me with joy after each trip, you protected me, you made a whole family happy and today you go to rest in peace leaving your mark on my heart,” del Potro wrote on Instagram.
“No photo could ever capture the perfection of this moment… but this one comes close. Thank you @jackdbrody for bringing me back to the place where we shared our first kiss over 6 years ago, and for making this day so much more than I ever could have dreamed of.”
But Wilson kept one. The average Roger Federer fan in the U.S., Canada (not Quebec) and the U.K, can win the platinum stick – and an entire commemorative kit – by going to the Wilson Instagram account.
There already are more than 20,000 likes (this “20” thing is definitely a theme) in less than 24 hours. So the odds aren’t great. But they’re better than Powerball.
Gaël Monfils showed up in Quito, Ecuador with … a new look.
“I call my girlfriend and I call my agent and everybody said no. So I said, ‘Okay, I’ll do it,’ ” Monfils told the ATP Tour website. “So I stayed there for five hours to get that colour. … In the end, I like it, it’s fun.”
But wait … A Monfils Instagram story over the weekend with his friend Dorian Descloix (they will play dubs together) already had him back to a darker hue. Hmmm…
We’ll get the answer when the No. 3 seed plays later this week.
