Australian Open champion Sofia Kenin, former World No. 1 Andy Roddick and former player, coach and commentator Brad Gilbert are the latest personalities from the tennis world to respond to the Roger Federer challenge that is going viral across the world right now.
Kenin posted a video of her doing the challenge and nominated fellow tennis stars Felix Auger Aliassime, Vasek Pospisil, Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Novak Djokovic for the same.
Roddick did not do the challenge himself, saying he was not much of a volleyer.
I’m accepting @rogerfederer challenge!
And Gilbert showed his own version which sees him standing a little further back on a construction site.
In his challenge, Federer stands inches from a green wall wearing a hat and hitting rapid fire forehand volleys.
