Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Email

Defending US Open doubles champion Bethanie Mattek-Sands has long been a charismatic and beloved member of the traveling tennis circus. But during Wimbledon, she suffered a major injury that even threatened to end her career. While Bethanie recovers, she’s here in New York with #GameSetMattek—taking us behind-the-scenes with exclusive access to many members of the tennis community.

When Bethanie played the five-second-rule game with Christina McHale, it didn’t go so well (although there was a ton of laughter, so not all was lost). 

BMS decided to give it another go. Her guest this time? Tennis Channel analyst and former world No. 1 Jim Courier.

The questions are as follows (Make sure to play along!):

-Name three things you can cover with chocolate.

-Name three famous men named John.

-Name three “chick flick” movies.

-Name three rappers.

-Name three celebrity couples.

Yeah, he pretty much nailed it.
