Running out of things to watch during the lockdown? Here's something that's both informative and entertaining.
In a brief cartoon educating people on how to keep themselves and others safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, 19-year-old Dayana Yastremska starred as a tennis-playing superhero:
Armed with a tennis racquet as a weapon and gloves and a mask for protection, the world No. 25 demonstrates several tips to reduce risk of getting infected or infecting others, such as ...
"Always wear a mask and rubber gloves while out in public—but it's better to stay at home."
"Maintain distance, and avoid crowds of people."
"Wash your hands when you come back home."
And "Together, we will win."
Issues related to COVID-19 remain a presence in every corner of the tennis world; much of the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center has been repurposed for hospital space and meal distribution, and on Friday morning it was announced that the Laver Cup, in Boston, will be postponed to 2021.
While not all heroes get an epic action sequence, there are things that everyone can do to help.
