Joint ATP and WTA tournaments are like prom: Everyone gets dressed up and acts awkwardly around each other. It’s great! And just like any proper prom, there are pictures.
Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams, Rafael Nadal and a crew of the WTA’s and ATP’s best put on their shiniest dresses and fanciest jeans to attend the China Open player party on Sunday to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Beijing tournament. In addition to a general celebration, a number of players were honored for their success at the China Open.
