"Après moi, le déluge," indeed. It may be that Amelie Mauresmo didn't quite know what she was in for when she signed onto Andy Murray's team as coach. Murray and Jesse Levine took their turns (the latter introducing the icy frivolity) in the so-called Cold Plunge Challenge before it claimed its later victim of sorts when Murray nominated Mauresmo to sit for it. Here are their respective (stationary) plunges:

 


 

 

Notice how Mauresmo needs to get up and shake it off soon after taking a cooler full of ice water. Meanwhile, Murray stays stoic, opting to remain seated and let it all, well, soak in. Next up, per Mauresmo's too-kind naming of names: Her compatriots Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic.

Your move, ladies.
