From shopping with Serena, motherly love and a potential new addition to team Wozzilroy, here's the best of the week from the tennis Twitterverse.

Tweet(s) of the Week

Frequent BTB sparring partner Ben Rothenberg has made it a habit of live-tweeting all of Serena Williams' appearances on the Home Shopping Network, where she sells her Signature Statement fashion collection. His tweets are far more entertaining than the actual show, which is weird because 90% of his tweets are just transcriptions of things Serena actually says on the show.
