The Western and Southern Open and US Open are happening folks, and as we write players are lounging around in the incredibly spacious confines at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, all safe in the bubble (well, as safe as they can possibly be, it seems). So today’s edition of the social flex is dedicated to what’s on the horizon. Qualies at “Cincy” are about to finish, and main draw play will commence in New York tomorrow, and looming on the horizon is – Grand Slam tennis! Hard to believe it, but it’s true.

So let’s take a spin around tennis social media and celebrate, shall we?
