Italians got the first piece of good news regarding coronavirus there in weeks — but people are wisely still staying home … and getting a little rallying going from their rooftops.
Check out this wild scene out of Liguria, Italy, where a couple of incredibly skilled people are literally playing a game of tennis from neighboring buildings, on the roofs no less. They’re smacking the ball across what must be a good 15 feet or more between them.
Even crazier … the ball is landing on each rooftop space as they go back and forth, without it dropping down below. Now, THAT’S talent … and social distancing ingenuity, if we do say so ourselves. Granted, they could be on a regular court and be considered safe there too.
But, considering Italy, as a nation, is just now starting to ease their national lockdown — which worked, BTW, as daily deaths and ICU patients are down for the first time in a long time this week — we don’t blame these two for going the extra mile to be apart for a match.
Maybe we just got a taste of the next challenge for pro tennis players here in the States. Any takers???
