Serena Williams has responded to a challenge laid down to her by Roger Federer, in which the Swiss great asked the WTA legend to show off her volleying skills.
Not only did the 23-time Grand Slam winner respond, she did so with a very special racquet – one signed by Federer at the Hopman Cup.
But while Serena was responded to a Federer challenge, Catherine McNally was busy setting her own by showcasing her tweener talents.
Sloane Stephens and partner Jozy Altidore, meanwhile, took up Andy Murray’s 100-volley challenge, with the soccer player showing that it’s not just his feet he has talent in.
Kiki Bertens has revealed that she has been in training for the Mutua Madrid Open, which will be played online from April 27-30 to raise money for charity. Kristina Mladenovic, whose presence in the competition has also been confirmed, seems to have some catching up to do, though.
