What to do in Paris besides practice? Part 2!

Second week at Roland Garros is just beginning. Some tennis stars are out of the tournament, others are still on the run. Let's see what they've been up to off courts. 

Caroline Wozniacki

If you go to Paris, you have to visit the Eiffel Tower. It's mandatory! And so did Caroline Wozniacki with her boyfriend, professional golfer Rory McIlroy. The Danish posted on Twitter that she was "enjoying a nice evening in front of the Eiffel Tower with @McIlroyRory".

John Isner

The king of aces John Isner took his girlfriend Madison McKinley for a tour around the Eiffel Tower. Don't they look lovely?

Maria Kirilenko

Lovebirds Maria Kirilenko and Alex Ovechkin chose another Parisian landmark, the Arc de Triomphe. The NHL player posted the photo on Twitter with this lovely comment: "Me and Maria in city of LOVE....."

Fabio Fognini

The Italian Fabio Fognini paid a visit to the Arc de Triomphe, just as Maria Kirilenko. He posted on Twitter and Instagram several night and day pictures with his girlfriend near the famous Parisian landmark.

Milos Raonic

Without a girlfriend, Milos Raonic probably wasn't feeling the love mood going on in Paris. What else could he do then? Uhmm... he went to look for the Canadian Embassy and found it! That is one patriot fellow!

Rafael Nadal

Rafa has to be one of the busiest players off court. It comes with the territory when you're tennis nº 2, king of Roland Garros and have your birthday during the event. The Spanish had not one but three birthday parties (that we know of). He also went to another party hosted by his friend Nasser Al-Khelaifi, Paris St Germain's club owner and owner of Qatari TV channel Al Jazeera Sport, and now president of a new TV channel launched in France, the beIN Sport.

Roger Federer

Federer went sightseeing in Paris with his twin daughters, Myla and Charlene. In the pictures, he is leaving the Ritz Carlton hotel with coach Severin Luthi and the two little girls. 

Novak Djokovic

Tennis nº 1 hasn't been seen strolling around Paris with his girlfriend Jelena Ristic, although she is in the city. But he sure hang out with his friends and team. Tonight, he posted a photo of them playing a game of Subbuteo. Forget Playstation, people still play table football!!
