Kitchen time in the tennis community: Rafael Nadal, Coco Gauff, Donna Vekic, more
by ALICE CIMINO | VIEW 15471
When you’re stuck at home, there’s not much to do. For some, it’s the perfect time to catch up on series and movies or to design their DIY training exercises. For others, it’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy their hidden hobby: cooking!
Let’s see what the menu of these tennis-players-slash-chefs looks like. Rafael Nadal said he would find it easier to be training for hours rather than baking this cake:
Translation: "I'm overwhelmed with work at home...
Estoy desbordado con el trabajo en casa ... ð©
Más fácil sería estar en el torneo de Monte Carlo (que tocaba esta semana) entrenando 3 horas de tenis ð¾ ððð Pero por ahora es lo que toca y con buena cara!
Después pongo una foto del resultado... ¡¡Y lo dicho, a animarse !! pic.twitter.com/mj7xBD70TZ — Rafa Nadal (@RafaelNadal) April 13, 2020
It would be easier to be at the Monte Carlo tournament (which was supposed to take place this week) training for three hours. But for now, we do what we have to do and with good grace! I will post a photo of the result ... And what I said: cheer up!!"Donna Vekic has a sweet tooth:
Cori Gauff likes both sweetness and calories:

Ah, that’s an old one, but what Ana Ivanovic and Bastian Schweinsteiger have cooked still looks… erm- delicious:
Not a recipe, but here is Timea Babos giving us a tour of her kitchen:
One of the positive things about staying at home is cooking with @anaivanovic.
