MELBOURNE, Australia — Tennis’ best came together to entertain the young ones at the Australian Open Kids Day on Saturday, which led to some surreal scenes on Rod Laver Arena.
Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Victoria Azarenka, Lleyton Hewitt and others yucked it up on court alongside Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dora the Explorer and Spongebob SquarePants.
