On the eve of Christmas Eve, we caught up with the men of the ATP Tour to find out what’s on their Christmas wish lists in 2013. With the tennis circuit consuming 11 months of the year, the dominant theme here was more precious time with family and friends.
Well, that and gadgets. Because who doesn’t love gadgets?
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga: For Christmas, two majors and let’s start with the Australian Open.
Stanislas Wawrinka: Children love Christmas and I’m really looking forward to spending the 24th of December with my family. The gifts for our daughter Alexia are ready to be opened and I can’t wait to see her opening them. This year I have to leave early and therefore it’s even more important to spend as much time with my wife and daughter before starting the new season.
John Isner: I want a Panthers Super Bowl!
Tommy Haas: I want the new iPhone 7s (smiling).
Tommy Robredo: Health and happiness for everybody, especially for my family.
Fernando Verdasco: I want to be with my family, my friends, in general everybody I love and care about!
Bob Bryan: For Christmas I want a smooth and safe delivery of Micaela’s baby brother.
Jerzy Janowicz: For Christmas, I want PlayStation 4 games!
Ryan Harrison: My Christmas list right now is a speaker system for my living room that all my family is getting me I think.
Vasek Pospisil: A new MacBook Pro. I will probably wrap it for myself and put it under the tree.
Bruno Soares: I want for Christmas lots of titles next year and happiness for my family.
Fabio Fognini: For Christmas I want lots of small little gifts (laughing).
Kevin Anderson: I would like a new acoustic guitar.
Alexander Peya: Actually I don’t want any special presents. I just want to enjoy a nice Christmas at home with our one-and-a-half-year-old boy.
Radek Stepanek: I want sooooo many presents that I can’t even carry them (laughing).
Kei Nishikori: Love from friends and family.
