Tennis - In recent times, there have been some sightings of some women players hitting with the men players. Maria Sharapova hires hitting partners from the former pros. She has worked with Nicolas Keifer and Vladimir Voltchkov in the past.
World no. 7 Sara Errani meanwhile has said that if she were given a chance, she would like to play against 11 time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal. Errani, who is one of the modern day clay court specialist in women's tennis, was answering fan questions on the WTA site when she was asked which male player she would like to play against.
Errani replied, "I would like to play with Nadal, because he's the one I like the most. But just for some shots - not for full points, that would just be impossible. I cannot win one point against him!" Errani is currently in Madrid for the Mutua Madrid Open and plays her round of 16 match on Thursday.
