Charades, Charity & More: Tennis United Episode 5
Tennis United debuted an exciting fifth episode on Friday, featuring a fun game with some of your favourite players. It also explored important charity work being done by one of the world’s best doubles teams.
Dominic Thiem, Diego Schwartzman and Dennis Novak joined one of the show’s hosts, Vasek Pospisil, for a fun game of charades. Schwartzman and Novak tested their guessing skills against Thiem and Pospisil.
Schwartzman and Novak set the bar high, scoring eight points. Although Thiem tried his best to guess what Pospisil was displaying, it was not enough to beat the Argentine-Austrian duo.
"We are the winners!" Schwartzman declared with excitement.
Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies, 2019 Roland Garros champions, have been doing their best to help their communities in Germany. Krawietz has been working in a supermarket, and Mies has been delivering fruit to essential workers and the special needs community. They discussed what they've been doing in this episode.
“I was doing security at the front door from 3:00-8:30pm and had to stand the whole time. I was already looking at my watch after 30 minutes and thought it was like a fitness session,” Krawietz joked. “After that, I was thinking that I’m very lucky to have a job where I get to play tennis and travel so much. But even though getting up at 5:00am hurts a bit, it’s been a new experience and fun to talk with my other colleagues.”
Mies has enjoyed teaming with German football player Bastian Oczipca to deliver fruit.
“We’re in a very privileged position to play tennis and make a living out of our passion since we were little kids. We were able to take our hobby and turn it into a job,” Mies said. “Sometimes it’s hard to give back when we’re traveling so much for tournaments, so now was the time to think about what we can do to help.”
Pospisil's co-host, Bethanie Mattek-Sands, also catches up with Caroline Garcia and Monica Puig.
