It seems that we are beginning to see more and more rap/hip hop artists at the tennis in the past couple of years. So far it seems:
Both Kanye West
and P Diddy
have been spotted in Djokovic's player box in Rome and New York respectively. Diddy seemed pretty enthusiastic during the SF, regardless of whether or not he actually knew what was going on. Don't actually know whether these guys are 'fans' though.
is a Nadal
fan - seen at 2010 RG final, 2011 US Open final and Nadal vs Del Potro at Wimbledon this year, so fairly safe to assume.
is also a Nadal
fan. From a blog in ESPN magazine from 2008 (I think):
Besides the Packers, my favorite teams are the Red Sox, the Lakers and the Boston Bruins. I also love tennis. I had a lot of people over to my place to watch the Wimbledon final this year, and we went crazy. I love Federer but Nadal is my favorite. He's the man. I love his motivation and his heart is big. He leaves it on the court.
is/was a Lendl
During an interview, rapper Snoop Dogg was asked which sport people would be surprised to know he liked.
He replied: "Tennis. I used to like Ivan Lendl. He was sharp. An old schooler. Make it happen and roll out. Now I like Venus and Serena, but Ivan was the truth."
Not entirely sure about Federer but have heard rumours that Tupac is releasing a new album next year with a song dedicated to him.
Oh, and Vanilla Ice
is deffo a Murray
Anyone aware of any others?
