OLYMPICS: The London 2012 opening ceremony through the tennis players' eyes

The athletes tweeted their tails off before, during and after the Olympics opening ceremony. Here are some of my favorite photos shared by our beloved tennis players.

Armada duo Feliciano Lopez and Marcel Granollers (original here)
Pico and Nole share the love

"I'm at the Olympics Games Opening Ceremony in London!" tweeted Anastasia Rodionova, in case there was any confusion. 
 Nice shot from Spain's Anabel Medina

David Ferrer tweeted this of Team Spain. He asked for our opinion. What do we think guys?? Pretty fly I say...

Argentina's Gisela Dulko (Mrs. Fernando Gago) is all smiles with Serbia's flag-bearer Novak Djokovic

Germany's Angelique Kerber is pretty in pink :)

Can a mixed doubles team be any sweeter? Team Argentina - Gisela and Juan Martin 

 Doubles gold medalist Stanislas Wawrinka finally gets his moment

Verdasco seems vertically-challenged all of a sudden

They may have been at each others' throats before the Olympics but Team India sure look chummy here

Milos Raonic and his coach, former player Galo Blanco

San Antonio Spurs' Manu Ginobili with del Po and Pico - Argentina's finest!

This what Djokovic had to say about the opening ceremony:  "I’ll never forget the last night's spectacle! The excitement, adrenaline, the atmosphere - everything was just perfect! A great, positive energy was felt among athletes, as well as among the massive audience. I haven’t felt anything like that in a long time and I'm still under the strong impression. It really gave us a special motivation boost for the start of the games. Andrija Zlatic won the first medal for our country! Let’s go Serbia!!! Idemo!"
