Djokovic, Federer, other players take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
The ALS Ice Bucket challenge has taken over social media in the past few weeks, as celebrities, pro athletes and regular folks have dumped buckets of ice water on their heads in the name of ALS awareness (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease).
Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Caroline Wozniacki were just some of the many tennis players to get involved in the viral campaign, but the two most notable holdouts so far are Serena Williams (who was nominated by Kendrick Lamar, Caroline Wozniacki, Ana Ivanovic, among others) and Maria Sharapova, who got the nod from her boyfriend Grigor Dimitrov.
I asked Serena about the challenge last week in Cincinnati and she said she was waiting to complete the challenge because she needed "props." Oh boy.
Here's a collection of some of the best ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos by tennis players. Djokovic's "Ice, Ice, Baby" routine and Laura Robson's look of abject horror take the cake.
