What can you do when the world shuts down and governments tell you to stay in to avoid spreading a scary virus? Tennis, on social media, gives its answer. Here is how some of today’s WTA and ATP stars are coping with social distancing and Coronavirus, as they continue to wait for tennis to resume.

This week we had blockbuster Instagram LIVE sessions with Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka, plus the usual random acts of bizarre tennis theatre that fans have become accustomed to during quarantine. Take those Italian women rallying across rooftops as exhibit A. The world has given us lemons in 2020, but thanks to a resourceful group of talents with beaucoup social savvy, tennis is making lemonade.

So let us partake…
