The Bachchans at the French Open

Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan at the French Open

We didn't know the Bachchans liked tennis.

In fact, we can't recall seeing either father Amitabh or son Abhishek -- or for the matter, mother Jaya -- at any sporting event.

So this sighting at the French Open at Roland Garros, Paris, on Tuesday must be a first.

Amitabh and Abhishek watch Fedex -- also known as the Greatest Tennis Player currently on the planet -- defeat Spaniard Tommy Robredo in the quarter-final and enter the semi-final of the Grand Slam event.
