Tennis players impress on the court day in and day out, but when it comes to survival situations, most probably wouldn't even know how to light a fire. Four ATP players—Denis Shapovalov, Karen Khachanov, Reilly Opelka, and Alexander Bublik—sat down recently to share who they definitely would not take with them on a deserted island.

Opelka: "I wouldn't want Fritz to be stuck with on an island because I don't know if he's that resourceful if he doesn't have Wi-Fi. Or he would be trying to find a way to connect and play some Playstation."

Shapovalov: "I wouldn't want Frances [Tiafoe] because he would talk my ear off."

Bublik: "I definitely don't want to be there with [Andrey] Rublev because he probably wants to practice every day. I think he's going to grind so hard. That probably in three weeks I'm dead because he's practicing 17 hours a day."

Khachanov: "Fabio Fognini. I don't know, we will kill each other at one point maybe."

And what about who they would want to join them?


Opelka: Tommy Paul

Shapovalov: David Goffin

Bublik: Paul

Khachanov: Rublev and Daniil Medvedev

It's fair to say that not everyone has the survival skills necessary to survive on an island, including tennis players.

"I honestly don't think tennis players have any good survival skills because we get everything handed to us," Shapovalov said.

These men, joined by their colleague Medvedev, also answered more questions for the ATP, including "Who is the funniest person on tour?:


And "Which player has the funniest nickname?":

The 2020 ATP calendar still has plenty of tennis left with players competing in Antwerp and Cologne this week.
