Chris, a sixth-grader from San Diego, California, sings about how much he misses the ATP Tour.

Wawrinka Gives Shout Out To Young Fan's Song

The song was written by a fan who lives with Alström Syndrome, which causes blindness and multi-organ failure

The ATP Tour remains suspended until 13 July, but fans are following their favorite players closely.

Chris, a 12-year-old who lives in San Diego, California, misses the Tour so much that he wrote a song about it.

One of the players mentioned in the song is former World No. 3 Stan Wawrinka, who took to social media to show his appreciation.

Chris was born with a rare genetic disorder called Alström Syndrome, which causes blindness and multi-organ failure. He checks the scores and stats of all the ATP Tour matches when he wakes up, and his favourite players are John Isner, Matteo Berrettini, Nick Kyrgios and Stefanos Tsitsipas.

He got to meet Isner at last year’s BNP Paribas Open and the US Open. Chris also met Berrettini at Indian Wells this year before the event was cancelled due to coronavirus concerns.

Read the lyrics of his song below:

We miss the ATP Tour

We hope scientists find a cure

We miss Fed, Nadal and Berrettini

Djoker, Nick and of course Fognini

Now Nadal is cooking eggs

Fed is playing in the snow with a hat

Djoker is getting a haircut

And Thiem prefers dogs to cats

You’ve got to love Stefanos posting Nick’s number to fans

And Isner describing how to make a heart with his hands

The break has taught the fans a lot of new things

One of them is Stan the Man, he’s a social media king

Murray is unbeatable in the virtual tennis game

Medvedev can howl and his dog can do the same

We are ready for the players to get back on court

The world can’t wait to watch this wonderful sport

We miss the ATP Tour

We can’t wait for the scientists to find a cure
