Roger Federer and Andy Murray are two of the tennis superstars to have set stay-at-home challenges to the tennis community in recent days.
Three-time Grand Slam winner Murray combined with wife Kim, daughter of Nigel Sears, the current coach of Anett Kontaveit, to complete the 100-volley challenge. The goal is for couples to volley a ball between themselves 100 times consecutively.
A challenge to all tennis players and fans... The 💯 volley challenge. There was no bickering during the filming of the video 🙄, although I think the last volley was aimed at my head... I can't be the only one that wants to see Rog and Mirka hitting a few balls together...🎾 pic.twitter.com/c0lMnNuSSQ— Andy Murray (@andy_murray) April 9, 2020
Kim Clijsters took up the challenge with husband Brian Lynch and proved successful, with the proof posted on her Instagram account.
Meanwhile, Federer also challenged his fans to a volleying challenge, asking them to stand as close to a wall as possible and hit rapid forehand volleys. Crucially, the Swiss instructed his followers to “choose your hat wisely”.
Alizé Cornet and Samantha Stosur both took up the challenge.
Iga Swiatek might not have had quite as much success, but there is little doubt that she is winning on the outfit front.
Former WTA World No.1 Caroline Wozniacki has challenged herself to improve her skipping.
Meanwhile, Kristie Ahn continues her own personal challenge of winning TikTok and has come up with another two brilliant videos.
