Every tennis fan was very unhappy when they heard that the 2020 Wimbledon was canceled. But the good news is that it does not mean that there won’t be any tennis in the UK. An exhibition tournament called the ‘Battle of the Brits’ is being organized by Jamie Murray and it will feature players like his brother Andy.
Obviously, every player has to get tested for the coronavirus before playing. And Jamie Murray decided to show the world how he is getting tested. Check it out.
As you can see in the above Twitter post, Jamie Murray has just shown us a video of him getting tested. He has also given a warning saying that you should not watch it if you are squeamish. But most people would probably watch it anyway.
From what Jamie said in the video we learn that this is the second time he is being tested. And apparently, this test is worse than the one before. You can clearly see him hating every minute of the test but he understands that it is important to do it before playing his exhibition.
After months of absolutely no tennis, everybody will be happy that many exhibitions are starting. The first exhibition was Novak Djokovic’s Adria Tour, then came Patrick Mouratoglou’s Ultimate Tennis Showdown and now we have the Battle of the Brits.
In addition to all this, there is going to be a return to professional tennis. After months of speculation, the US Open finally confirmed that the event will be taking place which is great news. But the tournament is going to have some restrictions due to the situation with the virus.
One of those restrictions is that fans will not be allowed inside the arena. This is something that no tennis fan will be happy about but is something that is necessary. Hopefully, despite all the restrictions, the 2020 US Open will still be a grand success.
