The Tennis Letter presented an exciting challenge to fans–creating the perfect ATP tennis player with a limited budget of $18. Players were categorized into five qualities, each assigned a specific price ranging from $5 to $1. The qualities included Serve, Forehand, Backhand, Net Play, and Movement. With a well-thought-out strategy, fans could handpick their favorite attributes from different players to construct the ultimate combination.

“Give me John serve, Rublev forehand, Zverev backhand, Evans net game, Monfils movement and it’s OVER … anyone who disagrees is just wrong” said Fritz while pointing out his dream player.

Taylor Fritz’s choices revealed his keen eye for talent and his deep understanding of the game. He opted for John Isner’s powerful serve priced at $5, Andrey Rublev‘s explosive forehand for $3, Alexander Zverev‘s reliable backhand for $3, Dan Evans’ exceptional net game for $3, and Gael Monfils‘ lightning-fast movement for $4.
