Tweets of the Week: Tsonga's fire safety

The tennis tour has officially invaded New York as the men and women make their final preparations for the U.S. Open, which begins on Monday. If you think the players have holed themselves up in their hotels all week you've missed out on the grinding tennis press junket. They've been everywhere!

Here are some of the best tweets of the week .

Tweet of the Week: Anna Wintour hosted a belated birthday party for Roger Federer and Diane Von Furstenberg was there to Instagram it. Yup, don't think I would have ever written that sentence.

Best of the rest

9. Fact Czech: British player Anne Keothavong has apparently defected to the Czech Republic according to British Eurosport.

8. When in Texas...: Jelena Jankovic rides a horse in Dallas. Am I the only one who wishes that horse could tweet what it's thinking right now?
