Tennis Players that Love Dogs!


tennis players that love dogs

Tennis Players travel a lot and there are some Tennis Players that love dogs. They have to be away from their pups alot. Australian bio-security laws are tight, so sadly no international tennis pups make their way to the Aus Open.

As we all go tennis crazy for January, we thought it would be interesting to know who the biggest dog lovers on the tennis tour are.

Starting with the Aussies

I’m very excited to announce that on December 15, I will be hosting a charity event with 100% of funds raised to benefit Dezzy's Second Chance Animal Rescue and @oceanconservancy’s Trash Free Seas Alliance. I hope you can join me in Boca Raton, Florida for an afternoon of great tennis (including the Bryan Brothers, Sebastien Grosjean and more to be announced), meet & greets, on-court challenges, a silent auction and VIP dinner, and we’re thrilled that comedian Michael Kosta will be on hand to emcee the event. Even if you can’t make it to South Florida, there are many ways you can still support the cause and get something pretty cool in return. Visit or click the link in my bio for more information and hope to see you there!
