Tennis tournaments may be off the cards for the year 2020 but tennis in people is still intact and flourishing. And this video here is an example.
Taking tennis to the next level while following the social distancing norms, two girls in Italy decided to play ‘tennis at home’. And to be honest, it’s not at all bad. Indeed, it is kinda tougher than normal tennis and thus the best thing you will see today.
The video hails from the city of Liguria, where two junior players can be seen playing tennis as they hit the ball to and from one another’s rooftops.
According to the ATP Tour website, the video, posted on Saturday has earned millions of views across social media platforms and also yielded one of the most-viewed tweets in the ATP Tour account’s history.
Various celebrities also came forward to laud and share the video with their fans. Rex Chapman, a former NBA basketball player who tweeted the video and said it was the, “most incredible thing you’ll see today”.

Although, this is amazing video but it could lead to more people emulating something like this.— Bhavesh Dodia (@Bhavesh_Dodia) April 18, 2020
Not sure if this is safe either, Because virus spreads through surface as well am sure tennis balls are not virus proof(if either player is unknowingly infected could be a problem)
