Seattle Seahawks quarterback Drew Lock trolled back after being the target of a viral tweet over the weekend.
Lock gave a special Fourth of July shoutout to "the intern at the @usopen" after the verified Twitter account fired back at a Seahawks fan who claimed tennis was "not a real sport."
"Happy 4th to all but especially to the intern at the @usopen," Lock tweeted on Monday (July 4).
On Saturday (July 1), the fourth-year quarterback caught strays from the verified US Open Tennis account after Twitter user @seahawksfan2314 tweeted "not a sport" in response to SportsCenter's clip of Nick Kyrgios' trick serve at Wimbledon.
"Not a sports ays the person about to watch 17 games of Drew Lock at QB," US Open Tennis tweeted.

The Seahawks fan doubled down by tweeted, "Ratio + ur event is poverty," to which the US Open account shared a graphic in which NFL analyst Chris Simms ranked Lock 40th among his top 40 quarterbacks in the NFL.
"Remind us again, we're 'not a sport,' the account tweeted. "Aren't there only 32 NFL teams?"
Lock was selected by the Denver Broncos at No. 42 overall in the second-round of the 2019 NFL Draft and has struggled in 24 total NFL appearances through his first three seasons.
The former University of Missouri standout has an 8-13 record as a starter and has thrown for 4,740 yards, 25 touchdowns and 20 interceptions on 421 of 710 passing.
The Broncos also included two first-round picks, two second-round picks, a fifth-round pick, defensive lineman Shelby Harris and tight end Noah Fant in exchange for Wilson, who is the only Seahawks quarterback to ever win a Super Bowl and holds every franchise passing record.
