Joining Tennis Channel's "Credentialed" team, Mischa Zverev has given viewers an inside look at what it's like to be at the Australian Open in 2021. He also got to play some Australian rules football with two sporting legends.

In Melbourne to support his little brother Alexander, Zverev hung out with 1987 Wimbledon champion Pat Cash and Paul Salmon, an Australian Football League Hall of Famer. Zverev was shown the ropes of the game and quickly proved he has a knack for it.

After the practice sessions, Salmon said Zverev's play "was not pretty, but it was effective." If that's not a complement, what is?!

Zverev's work as a Tennis Channel reporter wasn't over just yet. He moved on to his own brother to ask him 21 questions.


The Zverev's time in Melbourne has come to an end with Alexander losing to Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals.
