Boris Becker gives Patrick Mouratoglou some Twitter feedback, the ATP pros take a shot at Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova and everyone is left scratching their heads after the dramatic quarterfinals at the Monte Carlo Masters. Here are the best tweets of the week.
@pmouratoglou are u sure about that? — Boris Becker (@TheBorisBecker)
Boris Becker wasn't exactly buying Patrick Mouratoglou's analysis during Roger Federer's quarterfinal match against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and it didn't take long for Mouratoglou to offer up something better for his liking:
@pmouratoglou that's better ...

Was it something Boris said? This is hands-down the funniest tweet Mouratoglou has ever sent.
Give Federer credit, it's not easy to go 0-13 on break points. Not the sort of achievement he's used to, but an achievement nonetheless.

Federer would go 0-15 on break points against Tsonga before finally getting two breaks to finish 2 for 19 in the match and won 2-6, 7-6 (6), 6-1.
The positive side of Nadal&Ferrer's endless matches is that you can watch an entire episode of Scandal yet the score is still only 3-3. — Tumaini (@tumcarayol) April 18, 2014
Fed gets a code violation warning. Tsonga is clutch. Ferrer beat Nadal on clay. Today is Opposite Day in tennis. — Lindsay Gibbs (@linzsports) April 18, 2014

Djokovic pulling a Nadal : we're waiting for him since half an hour and are going to wait 15 minutes more. At least. #Impersonation ;) — Carole Bouchard (@carole_bouchard) April 15, 2014
