Murray Issues '100 Volley Challenge'
Former World No. 1 shares task with his 3.5 million Twitter followers
It seems Roger Federer has started a new trend.
Just two days after the Swiss challenged celebrities and fans around the world to showcase their best volleys against a wall, former World No. 1 Andy Murray has created his own volley challenge with one major alteration. You will need a partner, not a wall.
In a video post on Twitter, Murray encouraged fellow players and fans to take the 100 volley challenge. From his garden, the 32-year-old then completed a sequence of 100 volleys with his wife, Kim.
A challenge to all tennis players and fans... The 💯 volley challenge. There was no bickering during the filming of the video 🙄, although I think the last volley was aimed at my head... I can't be the only one that wants to see Rog and Mirka hitting a few balls together...🎾 pic.twitter.com/c0lMnNuSSQ— Andy Murray (@andy_murray) April 9, 2020
Murray is hoping the challenge will reach fellow volley challenge creator Federer and his wife, Mirka, who reached a career-high No. 76 on the WTA Tour in 2001.
“I can't be the only one that wants to see Rog and Mirka hitting a few balls together,” said Murray.
