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.

1. Kids these days, redux: Andy Roddick's nephew sounds familiar. Check out the 1:57 mark in Andy Murray's BBC comedy sketch. "Um...no. 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?" https://twitter.com/#!/andyroddick/status/148809148727951360
