Let me tell you, there’s a lot going on on Twitter. With the Tours being suspended until July, the bulk of the tennis action has relocated to social media, and many interesting discussions have hence arised. As part of a recent trend, players, fans, journalists, tournaments, and organisms have been constructing their best player of all times, taking shots and qualities from any professional player ever.
On April 9, Reilly Opelka shared his own picks with his Twitter followers, and it seems like his friend Alex de Minaur is the American’s idea of what a perfect tennis player is.
De Minaur himself didn’t want to take the credit:
Build me your perfect tennis player....
Movement: Def Deminaur
Mental Toughness: Deminaur — Reilly Opelka (@ReillyOpelka) April 9, 2020
But it looks like Matty Reid and Taylor Fritz do think the Australian is very special:
You are an idiot!!!

Hahahahaa 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 — Matt Reid (@MattReid12345) April 9, 2020
Was this barely a joke from Opelka? He does seem to use a lot of sarcasm and humor on a daily basis on his social media, and it is no secret that he and de Minaur are friends who make fun of each other. But what if it were a genuine take instead? Fritz´s answer did not come with laughing emojis...
