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.
