Roger Federer puts forth a volleying challenge to the fans and various celebrities.

Roger Federer's Volleying At Home Challenge

Federer challenges fans and celebrities before giving them his feedback

Good morning, class. Volleying At Home 101 is in session with Professor Federer.

Roger Federer took to social media on Tuesday to challenge his fans to a volley challenge. The 38-year-old Swiss has been exploring new ways to embrace #tennisathome, and he found a fun method at the wall where he’d previously put on a trick-shot show on ice.

Federer stood just inches from the wall and hit rapid fire forehand volleys. The 103-time tour-level champion was already hitting volleys when the video began, and he was still doing so when the video ended. The shots were too quick to count, but he hit about 200 consecutive volleys in one minute without moving his feet.


Fans will take notice that Federer was sporting a Panama hat, not the bandana people are used to seeing from him over the past two decades. “Choose your hat wisely,” Federer wrote.

The challenge was not only for fans, but for celebrities, too. Federer tagged the likes of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Alexander Zverev, Coco Gauff, Cristiano Ronaldo, Tom Brady, Bill Gates and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in his post.
