Social distancing memes, tennis version: Rafael Nadal, Zverev, Vekic, more

With no on-court action to support the tennis world for the next months, tennis fans and personalities have relocated their effort and focus: Garbine Muguruza, Kristie Ahn, and Elina Svitolina are set on becoming Tik Tok sensations; Alexander Zverev and Marcelo Melo have taken over Instagram with their live video; Rafael Nadal, Fabio Fognini, Felix Auger-Aliassime and others use their social media to encourage their fans to follow the social distancing rules and be solidar; the tennis-addicted public is scouring the net for epic rewatches...

Ah, and tennis Twitter has been spun into a web of incredibly researched facts no one would have had time to research normally, memes by celebrities, and (so many!) throwback posts. Since scrolling down the app feels a bit like being rocked in a time machine, we’ve done some curating for you.

Here are funny tweets from tennis lovers who believe that, in challenging times, a smile is a powerful weapon to keep spirits up.

Alexander Zverev and Marcelo Melo then decided to go live on Instagram...

And we only want to say- someone please make them host a TV show. Whoops, roasted (or more like- fried).

Wimbledon 2010 Nicolas Mahut versus John Isner - Who's up for a ten-years-later marathon rewatch that lasts about ten years? ATP in Spanish showed their followers that Rafael Nadal is training hard at home, and the Spaniard answered with: "Hard, I don't know...

At home, yes."

To fill some of the void left by all sport events cancellations, we could have a contest titled "Weirdest Things I've Cooked at Night on Quarantine."

Wait, what? You- What? YOU WHAT? Great training idea!

Looks like 'tennis in the yard' might be something in the future...

… Or maybe underground tennis...

Nah, definitely tennis in the yard.
