The Social Slice: Leylah Fernandez makes it big with Google partnership
She's pretty good with her racquet, but the Canadian is a pro with the latest Pixel 6.

Every week, dozens of tennis players from around the world post on their social media. From funny videos to training updates, there are simply too many accounts to keep track of. That's why we do the work for you by selecting the best posts from across the world of tennis.
Welcome to the Social Slice:
You may have heard of Leylah Fernandez. The 19-year-old reached the final of the US Open last year alongside Emma Raducanu, making her a teenage sensation overnight. Now, the Canadian is making it big with sponsorships, sharing her latest commercial with Google. She showed off her table tennis skills in the company's latest commercial for the Google Pixel 6.
Speaking of Miss Raducanu, the Brit has certainly had no shortage of sponsors since winning her first Grand Slam. British Airways, Evian, and the list goes on and on. This week, the 19-yer-old posted a commercial for Nike that displays the vast amount of comments thrown at her on the daily, but when she's on the court the world's on mute. The short 30 second clip is powerful and perhaps a glimpse into what fans may see Down Under.
Petra Kvitova is in Australia for the year's first Grand Slam. However, she took a quick detour to participate in a media event at the Sydney Opera Bar. While there, the 31-year-old met up with none other than three-time major champion Andy Murray.
The Spaniard recently won her third career title at the Sydney International. It was a tough fight against Barbora Krejcikova but she managed to inch past the world No. 4 in three sets. Badosa shared photos from the final, expressing her pure joy with her week in Sydney.
