March 28, 2020

As social distancing continues into week three, and with no tennis until at least June, ATP Tour stars are helping to fight the effects of COVID-19. We’re not surprised at all to see how Roger Federer is giving back.

Serbian World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and wife Jelena are also pitching in to help their country gather the supplies and resources they need to combat the virus.

We also learned that Rory McIlroy might have a spot on the ATP Tour come June.

Stan Wawrinka has been killing it on social media since the quarantine started, and this is just another prime example.

And how about this rally! What an awesome basement setup I’m definitely not jealous of.  

With no Olympics until 2021, Novak Djokovic shared some words of wisdom for the tennis world.

And, of course, can’t forget about the video games. FIFA 20 is a classic!

Whatever this means…we feel the same, Stefanos.

Andy Roddick even had an audition for the Tennis Channel this week. Can’t beat working from home!

And what about this shot from Mardy Fish?! 10/10 execution.

Professional tennis also had its first case of the coronavirus this week, as 20-year-old Thiago Seyboth Wild tested positive for the virus. The Brazilian, who won his first ATP Tour tournament in Chile this past February, has been isolating since the diagnosis. We’re wishing you all the best, Thiago!
