The Social Serve: A tribute to the ANZAC’s
Social media sleuth Joel Smith digs up the best of tennis in the social stratosphere this week.
Twitter allows birthdays, ANZAC day and haircuts all to be celebrated on social media just like Cruz Hewitt’s recent trim, mirroring the looks of his father.

If you follow Ash Barty, Jarmila Gajdosova and/or Nick Kyrgios you probably would have wished them a happy birthday.
Happy birthday Ash! Hope you have a great day. Hope the Tigers bring you a lovely birthday gift. @ashbar96

ANZAC Day is a time to reflect and remember those who have fought and are currently fighting for our country. The Aussie tennis community certainly payed their respects.

Sam Groth was the ultimate good Samaritan during the week, raising money for terminally ill and permanently disabled people all over Australia. How? Serving down 150km/h rockets continuously for 30 minutes directly into the body of stuntman Scotty Gregory.
