While practising physical distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic, tennis star Roger Federer is keeping himself busy by practicing trick shots in the snow at home.
In a minute-long video shared by the Swiss ace on Twitter, he captioned the post: “Making sure I still remember how to hit trick shots #TennisAtHome”.
The professional tennis season is currently suspended until 7 June as the world battles the outbreak of Covid-19.
While he will by no means welcome the worldwide disruption, Federer will relish the off time as a chance to recuperate as he recently underwent knee surgery.
He went under the knife in late February and was scheduled to miss a string of tournaments, including the French Open.
The 38-year-old, who is currently ranked No 4 on the ATP rankings, will not drop any ranking points as the tennis season is halted.
He is the all-time men’s Grand Slam leader with 20 singles titles.
