Djokovic, Williams and more: Wimbledon stars share Instagram moments
Defending Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic leads the Instagram activity on the middle Sunday
As we prepare for the second week of Wimbledon, some of the stars of the tournament uploaded photos to their Instagram accounts over the weekend in order to share their experiences with fans.
Number 1 seed and reigning champion Novak Djokovic uploaded a picture of his #familytime as they spent time together away from the tennis to enjoy the sunshine and take the dog for a walk.
Djokovic wrote: “My little Simba! :) #TheLionKing #Proud #Familytime”
Others posted pictures aimed at their forthcoming opponents, including the Williams sisters. Serena made it clear that she intended to relax before her big match with Venus as she opted for a selfie in her onesie and included the hashtag #sleepallday.
Williams posted: “Day off all day in my #onepiece #restday #sleepallday whachudoin @venuswilliams ?? #sisters”
Nick Kyrgios was quick to hashtag #rematch before facing number 20 seed Richard Gasquet again. The two played out a thrilling encounter in 2014 when Kyrgios somehow managed to save nine match points before beating Gasquet in five sets.
Kyrgios uploaded the following caption: “#herewegogasquet #rematch #SW19”
Gasquet is clearly out for revenge and spent the weekend hard in training. He posted this image and means business judging by the sweat on his t-shirt!
Gasquet wrote: “Entrainement ce matin àvec Seb! @Wimbledon #Wimbledon2015”
Finally, the UK’s Heather Watson posted a defiant fist pump following her incredible match against Serena Williams. She was 3-0 up in the final set and served for the match at 5-4 but Serena fought back to inflict a heartbreaking defeat. Watson thanked fans for the “best atmosphere ever” and promised to come back stronger.
Watson wrote: “BEST ATMOSPHERE EVER… Honestly so blessed. Thank you everyone!! Serena showed why she is the best last night… I’ll be back tho I promise x”
