In our Daily Dose of Social Media, we look back at some of the moments that you may have missed from Monday 3 Jun as the Last 16 continues at the 2024 French Open.
Among those featuring in our latest Daily Dose of Social Media include Novak Djokovic, Ons Jabeur, Aryna Sabalenka, Alex de Minaur and Roger Federer

Jabeur and Djokovic share a hug and a joke at Roland Garros

Novak Djokovic is currently in his Last 16 clash with Francisco Cerundolo. But waiting for him in the corridor was Ons Jabeur who also features later on likely placing the dots together as to why she was there.
But Jabeur and Djokovic certainly showed their friendship with the duo exchanging a hug and sharing a joke. Novak called her the 'minister of happiness' whilst Jabeur quick wittingly said that he is the 'minister of playing late'. He is unlikely to do so today with the World No.1 facing Francisco Cerundolo on Monday afternoon. Instead of the 3:09am finish like the other night that he had to endure.

Full trailer released for Federer: Twelve Final Days

Roger Federer will release his documentary just before Wimbledon of his final 12 days as a professional tennis player. An emotional look on Amazon Prime into the legendary Swiss tennis star. It shows the final part of his career.
Federer's career culminated at the 2022 Laver Cup with him left in tears sitting next to Rafael Nadal in a famous shot. It will certainly be an emotional watch and the full trailer is now out.

De Minaur finds fan shown in viral video

It was a delightful day for Alex de Minaur. He saw off Daniil Medvedev to reach the Quarter-Finals and he also found the kid who was seen cheering so passionately for him in the stands during his last match.
He made it his mission to find the kid and meet him and he did so seemingly after his win over Medvedev. Tennis bringing the fans together with the stars. But he certainly also proved to be a lucky omen with the Aussie ace providing a spectacle and his maiden Roland Garros Quarter-Final.

Sabalenka staying alive and through to Quarter-Finals

Despite protesting that she isn't a great dancer, Aryna Sabalenka has been pictured after every win thus far dancing down the stairs and she had backing dancers during her latest win.
She had Ons Jabeur who we spoke about earlier who met up with Novak Djokovic in the background dancing with her. Seen more recently battling for Paula Badosa's affections, their bond is also strong and was shown with this moment.
But for Sabalenka, she flew past Emma Navarro 6-3, 6-2 to reach the Quarter-Finals. She will now face an Andreeva for the second time this tournament. This time it is Mirra Andreeva. The more difficult of the two after she eased past Erika Andreeva during her opener earlier this tournament. She will hope for the same result. But will she get it, time will tell. Her dancing though at least is spot on.

Got something to hide? 

Novak Djokovic's team seemingly didn't take too kindly to having a camera in their box. Facing off against Francisco Cerundolo on Monday afternoon, it seemed that his team were rather perturbed by the camera being in their box on the TV coverage.
In a fairly bizarre move and potentially hiding something one can construe, a member of his team covered the camera in order to shield what was going on. That is certainly the TV channel not bothering with that method to capture a different lens of the action in future then.

Andreeva gets crowd shouting her name

Mirra Andreeva reached her maiden Grand Slam Quarter-Final and had the crowd shouting her name albeit not without wanting her opponent to win.
She joked that the whole crowd were changing Varvara, Varvara and they responded with their own chorus of Mirra Mirra. Superb moment for the 17-year-old.
