In these times of social distancing, players are staying at home and getting bored without any tennis action. However, the preponderance of the tennis fraternity has shifted its focus on social media during the coronavirus pandemic. Many players including the World No.7 Alexander Zverev are trying to keep themselves and their fans entertained through social media.
The essence of the tennis tour is that it never stops and hence the players get no space of free time during the season. However, the unscheduled break due to the public crisis is offering these players to spend some quality time with their family and engage with their fans. Subsequently, Zverev has found a unique way to engage with his followers on Instagram.
Zverev, who has over 1 million followers on Instagram, asked his fans to send him graphics of himself on Wednesday.
“Feel free to keep sending through. I will make sure to repost them,” wrote Zverev. Subsequently, many fans sent him some good edit images, which he reposted. However, there were some, who made fun of the German with some hilarious edits.
Although the 22-year-old did not repost those comical edits, the fans put those images on social media. Few of them also added Dominic Thiem in the hilarious edits. We hope that the two would have taken this prank in a light-hearted way.
Take a look at some of them –
