Top 4 tennis digital content providers to survive Covid 19. 

The advice is quite clear STAY AT HOME. There is no tennis going on anywhere at the moment which is a huge shame but we must do this together. The situation is tough on all of us and we all miss the game of tennis hugely. Needs must. There is a massive question mark over professional sport for the foreseeable future. Word is that professional tennis may not return to 2021. As BBC commented, if there is no vaccine no tennis. Hopefully if the predictions are not as severe as expected recreational tennis can return before the end if the year.

For those of you out of there that cant go that long then you are in luck. There are a huge number of talented tennis players and coaches providing great digital content to ensure that us tennis fans can get our tennis fix. We have a made a list of a few of our tennis favourites which you can check out during Quarantine.

Jamie Murray

Professional Tennis has been suspended until the 13th July meaning, the European Clay Court Swing, the Grass Court season have been cancelled. As a top pro Jamie clearly knows he has to maintain his level of fitness as best he can for the resumption of the tour.

Keeping working on the skills.

Although most of us even Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic have no access to tennis courts we can still be working on the skills in the meantime. We can  work on footwork, volleys, touch, mobility strength and flexibility. Why not work on your sport psychology too? This often forgotten about area can be improved and who knows when we return to court might help you win some games. Wherever you are, stay safe and hopefully we will all be back on court soon.
