TENNIS CHANNEL LIVE: Bjorn Borg visits the TC Live Desk at the BNP Paribas Open.


Nathan Chen may have visited the BNP Paribas Open earlier in the day, but Marcos Giron and JJ Wolf proved they were tennis’ quad kings after a dramatic first round of men’s doubles.

Giron and Wolf shook off disappointing defeats in singles to edge past Italians Jannik Sinner and Lorenzo Sonego, 7-6 (4), 6-7 (7), 10-1, and debuted a unique celebration as they saluted the Court 6 crowd.

The inside joke dates back to at least 2020, when Wolf shared an impressive Instagram post from that year’s Roland Garros.

“Classic Quad-Squad practice to get ready for tomorrow’s match,” Wolf captioned. “As Founding Fathers @mcosgiron and I will now be accepting applications,” adding apropos hashtags like “#thickness” and “#legday.”

Thick thighs indeed saved lives in their first official match as a pair Saturday night, booking them a second-round encounter with No. 5 seeds Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliövaara.

Can the Quad Father sequel prove even better than the original?
