Medvedev, Serena Enjoy Monaco Grand Prix
Tennis players are used to speed, from blasted winners to rapid movement around the court. But on Sunday, some stars were treated to a different type of speed at Formula One’s Monaco Grand Prix, which was won by Max Verstappen.
One of the ATP Tour players in attendance was World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev, who is a Monaco resident.
“One of my dreams came true today,” Medvedev wrote on Instagram. “Had an amazing chance to watch F1 in Monaco.”
WTA Tour legend Serena Williams not only watched the race, but also played a special role at the grand prix. The American waved the chequered flag to signify the end of the race.
“I always told Sash he needs a driving coach…” Mischa joked on Instagram.
Felix Auger-Aliassime watched the action with his girlfriend.
Brazilian doubles star Marcelo Melo, the countryman of racing legend Ayrton Senna, got his first taste of Formula One action.
“Amazing weekend here in Monte Carlo,” Melo wrote on Instagram. “It was the first time for me watching one Grand Prix live.”
