Fourhand is the Daily Spin’s occasional roundup of various hits and misses on tour.
HIJACKED! Did Svetlana Kuznetsova get “punked” in the Rogers Cup locker room this week in Montreal? Perhaps slightly scandalized by the escapade, she seems to think so. “Someone wanted to ruin my mood or something,” she wrote on Instagram. “Guys, we are better than it.” (In the pic, she removed her insole with the offending matter on it).
