The Sixth Set

Players React to the California Earthquake on Twitter

Early this morning, a 5.1 magnitude earthquake rattled southern California, with the epicenter located about 30 miles from Indian Wells. The tennis world was on edge (slight over-exaggeration) from the small tremor and they tweeted as such. Enjoy!

Mardy Fish, a California guy, seemed unfazed as he began the tweetfest

Milos was on the can when the ground shook

Meanwhile, doubles specialist Frank Moser provided the typo of the year

Maria Kirilenko freaked out

And apparently others did too

Matthew Ebden took a moment to philosophize

Rafael Nadal, Elena Vesnina and Kirsten Flipkens were scared

Mahesh Bhupathi needs confirmation

And Feli wanted to make sure it wasn’t just him

You know it’s a big event when Roger enters the fray


Kevin Anderson was first up on Stadium 2, so his wife tweeted this on his behalf

If the ground shakes and you don’t feel it, was there really an earthquake?

There was more…

…and more in Spanish –TERREMOTO!!!

Angelique Kerber weighed in a few hours later

Bob Bryan, a California native, kicked off the post-quake pool party

And finally onto the jokes… :)
