The last time fans spoke about Wade's hair was in July, when he coloured his hair in flames. The hair was dyed at the back, providing contrast against Wade's dark hair. While it was supposed to be a tribute for his time with the Miami Heat, Wade and his hairstyle was compared to Dennis Rodman, who was known for his vibrant hair colour choices during his time in the league.

On the other hand, Serena Williams had to pull out of the season this year, having torn her Achilles tendon. She withdrew after her victory at Roland Garros, and had already hurt herself during the US Open. Williams, 39, is still aiming for her 24th Grand Slam, dismissing rumours of her retirement.
