I’m very excited about heading to Wimbledon this week, and all of the tennis action reminded me of one of my favourite tennis trick shots.
A few years ago, the great Roger Federer knocked a can off a crew member’s head with his tennis serve. It took place on an ad shoot, with Roger suited and booted for his trick shot.
As a keen tennis player myself, I wanted to give it a go on our Necker Cup court. Kensey Monopoli, now the co-founder of Spa from Ordinary, very bravely volunteered and I made my preparations, putting on a suit to look the part like Roger. We didn’t have a can so Kensey balanced a water bottle on her head, and I lined up to serve. How did we get on? You’ll have to watch the video to find out. Thanks for being such a good sport, Kensey. And remember, don’t try this at home!
Since then, other tennis stars have tried the trick, including Serena Williams (who will be joining us for the Necker Cup this year), Andy Murray, Maria Sharapova and Necker Cup veteran Novak Djokovic. You can see their amusing efforts in the video above.
I’m thoroughly enjoying all the Wimbledon action. Who do you think is going to win the titles this year?
