Six Petko abs, three rhythmically challenged Brits, and two men and a baby. Here are some of the best pictures of the last week.

Mike, Bob and Micaela Bryan: Baby straight chillin' like it ain't no thing. You might not be too impressed either, knowing your dad (Bob, on the right) has a habit of winning all the time. I mean, what's one Masters 1000 title out of 20? One ATP trophy out of 77? "Call me when you do something special, dad."

Rafael Nadal: Welcome home, Rafa. Sorry it's a bit dusty, but I hear you like it that way.

Andrea Petkovic: We run a co-ed ship here at Beyond The Baseline, and let's just say that every BTB team member is excited to have Petko back in the fold. For her tennis. Obviously for her tennis. Nothing but her tennis.

Novak Djokovic: Not everyone has to grieve the passing of a loved one while millions of eyes are watching your every move. Novak Djokovic did. Had to feel for the guy.

Svetlana Kuznetsova, Ana Ivanovic

Svetlana Kuznetsova and Ana Ivanovic: Given their much-publicized struggles, it's easy to forget that we're looking at two Grand Slam champions in that picture. It's also easy to forget because Sveta got herself a hardcore riot girl haircut. Lookin' good, Sveta.

Ivan Ljubicic

Ivan Ljubicic: So who's going to tell Ljubey that he's holding his hat upside down? Definitely not the guy on the right.

Serena Williams: Serena just realized that she indeed flew all the way to Ukraine to contest a Fed Cup tie in what looked like a forest in Kharkiv against a team composed of no one ranked inside the top 100.

Juan Monaco: Poor Pico. Two Sundays ago, he was jumping in a pool to celebrate his title in Houston. A few days later, he was in a pool rehabbing an ankle sprain from a nasty spill in Monte Carlo. The Tennis Gods can be cruel.

Heather Watson, Laura Robson, Anne Keothavong: Move over, One Direction. The Spice Girls are makin' a comeback.

Monte Carlo grounds: Hold on. It's a tax-free haven and it looks like that? I hereby volunteer to start up Sports Illustrated's Monaco office.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga: You can try to ignore Jo's faux-hawk all you want (what is it with all these haircuts lately?), but he's going to keep pointing at it.
