Tennis Fans Vote, Compete & Meet Chuck the Duck

We’ve come to realize that most professional tennis players are multi-talented super humans with the ability to do almost anything. In episode 8 of the Outside the Ball: Web Show, we wanted to find out who the fans think is the most talented of them all.




Gael Monfils and Victoria Azarenka kick things off with their skills in the DJ Booth. Both tennis stars have shared their love and talent for making music on social media and on display at Taste of Tennis events across the country. On our Twitter account, we asked the fans which tennis pro they would want to DJ their party. The fans have spoken, and Gael Monfils was crowned the music master!

While it’s easy to share your opinion in a Twitter poll, we decided to put tennis fans in the hot seat with a fun trivia challenge. Host Mayleen Ramey took to the streets, or tournament to be exact, to test fans on their knowledge of WTA star, Garbine Muguruza. Groups of family and friends accepted the challenge of taking on our quiz, and each other, for true trivia glory.




Tennis fans weren’t the only ones up for a challenge. Outside the Ball’s official mascot, Chuck the Duck, put his feathers on the line to test Grigor Dimitrov’s serve. A professional tennis player serving a ball at a little rubber duck doesn’t sound too difficult, which is why we added an extra element- the blindfold. With the blindfold firmly in place, Grigor aimed for success and luckily, wasn’t left in the dark.
