Tennis legend Roger Federer has been keeping himself busy at home during the lockdown period due to coronavirus by practising the game and maintaining the mental and physical sharpness. Federer has been posting videos on his Twitter account where he shares snippets of these routines.
In a video posted on Tuesday, he is seen practising a solo drill wherein he is knocking the ball against a wall whilst standing at a short distance.
Federer asked his fans to post a video of them practising the drill as well, and also tagged other sportspersons and celebrities such as Novak Djokovic, Thierry Henry, Lewis Hamilton, Mikaela Shiffrin, Justin Timberlake, etc.
