Ever since several countries were put under coronavirus lockdown, people have been coming up with creative ways to kill boredom at home. Earlier, nuns were seen showing off their basketball skills to pass time. Even David Warner and his daughter danced to Katrina Kaif’s ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’.
And like most of us who are missing going for our regular walks or playing our favourite outdoor sports, these Italian women were also probably done with sitting at home. Hence, they came up with a novel idea to play tennis at home while maintaining social distancing.
According to News18, two junior players from Liguria were spotted taking tennis to a whole new level. They were seen hitting the ball to and from each other’s rooftops.
Just incredible to see 💖

The video that was posted online by ATP Tour was loved by people online including Stefanos Tsitsipas, a professional tennis player from Greece and Rex Chapman, a former NBA basketball player among others.
Most incredible thing you’ll see today.
These two women are playing tennis from rooftop to rooftop in the Italian city of Liguria to pass time during the pandemic.

Like many other sports, tennis championships have also been called off, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. While we can’t wait for the day when everything will get back to normal, these amazing videos have kept us going.
