It's been two months since Indian Wells became the first tournament to get cancelled due to COVID-19. Players were forced to return home and stay off the courts for weeks, with no real sense of when the tours will return.

Many players respected their local governments by staying at home and doing their part to help contain the spread of this on-going pandemic. With some restrictions being lifted in countries around the world—though not without confusion—players are slowly trickling back onto the practice court.


Novak Djokovic

The Serbian is still having fun and taking things lightly. The world No. 1 had a casual practice session on clay while recording a few moments for his fans.



Alison Riske

The American got back on the court on Thursday and was seen working on her footwork and ball movement with her coach Billy Heiser.


Petra Kvitova

Over in the Czech Republic, Kvitova is embracing the simple joys of hitting tennis balls as restrictions slowly ease.



Dominic Thiem

Last week the Austrian had his first practice session so he's ahead of everyone else. "Long time no see. Today, I traded the controller for the tennis racket again," Thiem said.



Fabio Fognini

It was a special moment for Fognini on Wednesday as he also made his way back to the game he loves. "In these troubling times you realize just how much something means to you when it's taken away....for me, that is Tennis," Fognini said, while joined on court by his wife Flavia Pennetta.


Donna Vekic

The world No. 23 was all smiles last week as she rallied for the first time in months.



Eugenie Bouchard

In sunny Las Vegas, Bouchard managed to social distance while getting in a quick and efficient hitting session.


Just like everyone else, the pros are taking it day by day, but seeing them trickle back onto the court provides some optimism for the future.
