This week, Rafael Nadal has dinner with Cristiano Ronaldo, the Williamses get Posh, and Andrea Petkovic gives what is hopefully a promising update on her injury recovery. Here's the best of the week from the tennis Twitterverse.

Tweet of the Week: It took three years, but the WTA finally makes peace in the Middle East.!/Kamakshi_Tandon/status/172002793064894465

Best of the rest

10. RN10 dines with CR7: Rafael Nadal had dinner with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo. I think they're friends. So why does this look like a proof of life?!/RafaelNadal/status/172452306967740417

9. Pam thoughts: Pam Shriver tip-toes around the "R" word after Andy Roddick loses early in Memphis.

8. Next question, please: The answer is no, John.

7. Olivetti superfan: The ATP site was devoid of much information about Albano Olivetti, the No. 388-ranked Frenchman who upset Mardy Fish in Marseille. But British doubles specialist Ken Skupski knows what's up.

6. Pish, Posh: Serena and Venus Williams may have won majors, but Posh is major. Or "mayjah", as she'd say.

5. Remembering the victims: Gisela Dulko and Paula Suarez dedicate their first win in 2012 as a doubles team to the victims of the commuter train crash in Buenos Aires.

4. Pressure is a privilege: Golf and tennis often get thrown in together when people talk about individual sports. Fish points out one significant difference in light of this week's World Golf Championships.!/MardyFish/status/172367417392107520

3. She has a point: BTB Twitter fave Sloane Stephens nails another tweet.

2. Broken hearted: Someone's been listening to a lot of Whitney Houston lately.

1. Does this mean what I think it means?: Andrea Petkovic has been sidelined since Sydney with a stress fracture in her lower back. Let's hope this tweet means we'll be seeing that Petko dance soon.
