As we all know, social media has really made an impact in pro tennis (among other places) and it's apparently become a great way to keep track of your favorite players' birthdays. Within 24 hours these two posts popped up Instagram. I don't know about you but I didn't remember it was Stan's birthday - and his 30th to boot. Thankfully the fine ATP World Tour folks were keeping track. You gotta love (?) Stan's shirt and that cake looks AMAZING.
And just one day later - in a more model-like pose on Pico's page...
I love Pico's creative use of emojis. It's almost like he planned in out. Too cute.
These two birthday shout outs got me thinking about upcoming birthdays so I did a quick search in the 2015 ATP World Tour and 2015 WTA Media Guides and below is a list of players born in April.
4/2 – David Ferrer
4/3 – Tommy Haas, Madison Brengle
4/6 – Robin Haase
4/7 – Sorana Cirstea
4/10 – Thanasi Kokkinakis
4/12 – Marcel Granollers
4/17 – Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
4/19 – Maria Sharapova
4/20 – Alex Zverev
4/23 – Daniela Hantuchova
4/25 – Jan-Lennard Struff
4/26 – John Isner, Jarmilla Gajdosova
4/27 – Nick Kyrgios
4/29– Bob Bryan, Mike Bryan, Sara Errani
Most of these folks are on Instagram so I'm sure we'll see more shout outs!
