It's the holiday season and you know what that means. Time with family, presents and, if you're Dinara Safina, power tools. Enjoy this holiday-themed selection of the week's best tweets.

Tweet of the Week: You know you're a bit obsessed with tennis when Jason Segel tweets a picture of himself and Kermit the Frog and your kneejerk reaction is to shout "tennis racket!" Not referring to myself here. Nope. Not at all.

Best of the Rest

1. Kids these days, redux: Andy Roddick's nephew sounds familiar. Check out the 1:57 mark in Andy Murray's BBC comedy sketch. " Tennis isn't a job. Like, I play tennis. You go and you book a court for an hour and then what do you do the rest of the day?"!/andyroddick/status/148809148727951360
