#TennisAtHome Meets 'The Force' On Star Wars Day
Each year, 4 May serves as Star Wars Day. Instead of “May the force be with you” like in the movies, people say, “May the fourth be with you.”
The “force” has been with tennis players and fans throughout the world as they have adapted their love of the sport to their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic. The ATP Tour’s social channels refashioned some of the best #TennisAtHome videos to include an element of the Star Wars universe.

Roger Federer showed off his incredible feel while social distancing at the end of March, hitting a variety of tweeners and behind-the-back shots against a wall. It was as if the Swiss star was harnessing the "force" to pull off those trick shots, even if he didn't actually use a lightsaber to do so.
