Chris Evert laughs off the hilarious bobbleheads

Yesterday, the 17th of June, senior sports journalist Jon Wertheim shared a photo of Nadal’s bobblehead. Sharing the hilarious photo, Wertheim wrote, “Worst Bobble-head ever?”

While the Executive Director of Sports Illustrated thought this was it, Courtney Nguyen, a senior writer for WTA insider, had a similar thing in the bag. Replying to Wertheim, Nguyen shared another photo. The photo captioned “ELITE”, featured a bobblehead of former World No. 1 Lindsay Davenport.

The two bobbleheads in no time gained mileage, with fans going gaga over them. Lindsay’s bobblehead even invited a reply from the 3-time Grand Slam champion herself. She wrote, “You Guys…”. However, despite all the love and reactions from fans and Lindsay, it was Evert’s reaction that caught the spotlight.

Re-tweeting Lindsay’s bobblehead, she wrote, “Who are those two people?…RN and LD??? Yikes..”
