Iga Swiatek and Carlos Alcaraz got busy on Sunday as they entertained kids on Arthur Ashe for the US Open's Kids Day. The highlight of their performance was their football-tennis session. Swiatek posted pictures from the event on her Instagram account.
"Kids' Day. Thanks @carlitosalcarazz that was fun!" Swiatek captioned the photos. Explore the photographs below.
Carlos Alcaraz reacted to Swiatek's post.
"When is the professional football tennis tournament?" Alcaraz joked.
Both Swiatek and Alcaraz are football fans
It's probably no coincidence that Swiatek and Alcaraz played football-tennis on Kids Day. While Carlos Alcaraz is a known Real Madrid fan, Iga Swiatek is a die-hard fan of the iconic Polish football player Robert Lewandowski.
Just recently, Alcaraz expressed his wish to see Kylian Mbappe playing for Real Madrid. "Every Real Madrid fan wants to see Kylian Mbappe in Madrid. He is one of the best players in the world right now and all the teams love him.
I hope we read some news that Mbappe is going to Madrid. I would love that," Alcaraz said in Toronto. On the other hand, let's remember the face made by Iga Swiatek when he saw that Robert Lewandowski was in her box when she won Roland Garros in 2022.
"What a match! Congratulations Iga, you did it," Lewandowski captioned his Instagram post.
