Can you believe it? June is upon us and the French Open has come and gone for another year, which can only mean one thing… Yes, grasscourt season is officially open for business, and isn’t the backdrop stunning?

There’s always a prelude to the main event and Sam Groth could not have written the opening chapter any better.

Jarmila Gajdosova also had the perfect start:

Arina Rodionova unfortunately went straight to the climax:


Lleyton Hewitt looked at home:

While Nick Kyrgios literally was at home.

You’d better get out there soon Nick, DJ Joel Fletcher might give you a run for your money.

But some players were still engrossed in the action-packed two weeks that were Roland Garros.

And the city of love in general.


How good was Casey Dellacqua, by the way?

Elsewhere, young gun Ellen Perez was mirroring her idol at the Bethany Beach event in the USA.


And Daria Gavrilova was doubling burgers and fries on Vine.


Hair was a hot topic of debate this week, with Dylan Alcott sharing some strong advice for #RG15 runner-up Novak Djokovic.

Maybe Novak could learn a thing or two from those soccer players.

If you didn’t know, 6 June has been crowned John Millman Day.

And Lleyton Hewitt is this month’s Australian Open #GuestGrammer. Follow the @australianopen Instagram account to track Lleyton’s journey to his final Wimbledon campaign.

Back to tennis, and the Aussie boys continue to climb the world rankings…

…Slowly but surely Omar!

And when Thanasi Kokkinakis is not on the tennis court, he’s either riding public transport or teaching James Duckworth a thing or two about the gym.

Finally, it wouldn’t be a Social Serve without an obligatory Instagram #selfie, and while we did carefully consider Alex Bolt’s nomination, courtesy of Daria Gavrilova…

We couldn’t go past this week’s “sweet” winner: Nick Kyrgios

When you playing hard to get with the candy.
