Five Point Friday

Here’s your roundup of the five most interesting things I’m enjoying or thinking about this week.

1.) Get to Know Your Racquet

We all own a tennis racquet, but do you know the different parts of a racquet by name? In this week’s video, I dive deep to provide you with a visual walkthrough of each component, including the collar, bevels, and beam.

2.) Bahrami’s Wimbledon Trick Shots

Mansour Bahrami is a former professional tennis player who graces the courts at many of the largest tournaments to entertain and work the crowd into fits of laughter and cheers. Wimbledon has collected some of his greatest trick shots to share, and it’s well worth a few minutes to watch.

3.) Micro Tours Popping Up

Novak Djokovic’s announcement of the Adria Tour is one of the latest in several smaller tours being announced around the world to help jumpstart tennis ahead of the official return of the ATP & WTA. The tour will take place from June 13 – July 5, across four Balkan nations, including Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro, and Bosnia.

4.) Impressive Tennis Impersonations

Comedian and celebrity impersonator, Elliot Loney, who has been well known for his spot-on bit of Rafa, has recently released a few new videos that include Nadal, Djokovic, Kyrgios, Thiem, Murray, and Courier. If you’re looking for a quick laugh, then make sure you check out this video.

5.) Naomi Osaka Tops New List

At 22 years old, Naomi Osaka edged out Serena Williams in the past year as the highest-paid female athlete. However, after raking in $37 million, she also topped the previous record for earnings in a single year held by Maria Sharapova at $29.7 million in 2015.
