Tennis stars race in football juggling challenge while tournaments are suspended

Grigor Dimitrov, Sam Querrey, Frances Tiafoe, Marcus Willis, Taylor Fritz, Richard Gasquet and Victoria Azarenka were asked to compete against each other in a Keepy Uppy challenge organized by OutsideTheBall.com. The players had to juggle a football, doing as many reps as possible without letting the ball touch the ground.

Grigor Dimitrov, Sam Querrey and Taylor Fritz handled the challenge pretty decently, but Frances Tiafoe and Victoria Azarenka struggled to tie even 5 ‘keepy-ups’. However, the winner of the competition was British Marcus Willis with more than 40 reps, even if Richard Gasquet was the one who showed the most spectacular skills.

The 33 years old French player has juggled the ball with his feet, his knees and his head, showing that he comes from a country which became world champions twice in its history.
