It is the week after Roland Garros and our Daily Dose of Social Media returns with a look at the first week of grass court action as well as those deciding for a more chilled approach to the next juncture of the season.
Carlos Alcaraz has been enjoying his holiday, the Williams sisters shared a throwback and Emma Raducanu showed her lack of tennis knowledge in picking facets of players games to steal.

Alcaraz parties hard in Ibiza

One way of letting your hair down is by partying hard in Ibiza and Carlos Alcaraz has certainly been doing that over the past few days with multiple images emerging from social media.
Alcaraz headed to the party island after he ended up winning Roland Garros. A point that was raised with some concern by those in the Spanish media. But is a place that he loves and he will have a week off before he heads to Queen's to defend his title.
He was singing We are the Champions by Queen in the video. He was certainly the Champion at Roland Garros and a superb one at that.

Venus Williams goes back to where it all began

Venus Williams is currently off the court but as we know, she can certainly flirt with a return especially on grass so whether that is to come remains to be seen.
But while Venus continues to defy the age in which a player should retire. She went back to the start in her latest Instagram post. She posted a throwback photo of herself and Serena Williams in a superb look back.
Serena Williams herself has flirted with the idea recently oof returning saying she missed hitting balls. But whether either return remains to be seen, Venus more likely than Serena though.

Jannik Sinner commemorated by Nike after becoming World No.1

"Dear Number 1, I've always looked up to you. You were in my mind every time I've won a match and above all every time I've lost a match. You were there when I was tired, discouraged, frustrated and almost gave up.
"You are the reason why I didn't. The reason for trying harder and believing more in myself. Thank you, Number 1. Because without you. I would never be who I am today, you. Jannik.

Roger Federer's Dartmouth Commencement Speech

Roger Federer received an honourary doctorate at Dartmouth College in the US on Sunday and he gave one of the best graduation speeches going. Watch some of the incredible highlights below.
"I say that as someone who has heard that word a lot. 'Effortless.' People would say my play was effortless. Most of the time, they meant it as a compliment... But it used to frustrate me when they would say. 'He barely broke a sweat!'," Roger Federer said in one of his life lessons.
"The truth is, I had to work very hard... to make it look easy. I spent years whining... swearing… throwing my racket… before I learned to keep my cool... I didn’t get where I got on pure talent alone. I got there by trying to outwork my opponents."

Reilly Opelka is back

Reilly Opelka gets the moniker of Servebot for being tall and having a robotic serve and after not playing for a long time, he is finally coming back.
