It's been another whirlwind week in this Australian hard-court swing, with an anticipation building like mad for season's first Grand Slam event, the Australian Open. (Get conditioned now for your impending lack of sleep, Westerners.) Here, Novak Djokovic bids for Roger Federer to name his next child after him, Sabine Lisicki suffers an intruder, and some non-surprises as well. (This just in: Ivo Karlovic is tall. Tall as in 6'10", with a full foot on Donna Vekic, which doesn't keep the Croatian up-and-comer from hanging out with her compatriot.)

What's your own favorite tweet of the past week in tennis?
