Federer coaches fans virtually over social media
Swiss tennis star Roger Federer has taken to social media during the lockdown to offer ‘virtual coaching’ to his fans.
Inviting them to post videos on Twitter of themselves hitting a ball close-up against a wall - he promised to give tips.
Numerous players from all around the world have taken up the challenge, receiving advice from the pro.
One older player was advised not to lean so far back and play more from the wrist.
Another lady, clearly struggling with the challenge was advised: “Don’t be scared of the ball!”
