With the tennis season on a hiatus, how have the pros been spending their unexpected free time?
Some players have already worked out a plan for their break, while others are not very sure about what to do for the next couple of months.
For Stan Wawrinka, being back in Switzerland means he can enjoy his fondue.
Stan may want to slow down on the food though. Tennis starts again in about six weeks!
However, it was something else that caught Andy Murray’s attention, with the Scot calling out his Swiss rival for his notoriously shaggy hair.
“What’s your address so I can send you a hairbrush?”, Murray commented under Wawrinka’s post.
The bromance did not stop there, with Wawrinka hitting back sharply: “Yes, please !! Because right now I can’t buy one. All the shops are closed. But coming from you and your famous hairs it’s quite funny.”
Murray later admitted that he wasn’t really in a position to comment about someone else’s hair: “I actually have never owned a hairbrush as you can probably tell.”
Nothing shaggy about Serena Williams though. The legendary American has been working on her make-up, and is looking characteristically gorgeous here.
Great Britain’s Katie Boulter is apparently looking for a job in dog-sitting, while Brayden Schnur is seeking ways of watching as many movies as possible without paying.
For anyone looking for a dog sitter/walker in the Fulham/Chelsea area, for the next 6 weeks. Hit me up ?

At least Boulter and Schnur know exactly how to keep themselves busy during this period. Spare a thought for Genie Bouchard, who has no clue on what to do during this free time.
today was my one day off this week. i stayed inside on my couch the entire day. sometimes i changed spots on the couch to pretend i was doing something different. #socialdistancingupdates

Stefanos Tsitsipas has been catching up with long lost family…
Got stopped by a guy, while walking in the streets of NYC, who knew my grandfather from his football days. Such a small world!

Despite the break, some players just can’t stay away from tennis. Example is John Isner, who has been busy bothering himself, and others on what should be done with the rankings now that the sport is on break.
Asking this not because I’m tone deaf but more because I think a healthy debate could be fun.
So tennis fans, Should the ATP/WTA ‘freeze’ ranking points during this hiatus or let all the points fall off?

On a final note for now, we wish Kevin Anderson all the best as he gets more time to recover from knee surgery.
Keeping my focus on getting stronger on court right now with my team during these uncertain times we’re having. Hope everyone stays safe ? pic.twitter.com/IfsQBZigYa
