As the cameras rolled, Denis Shapovalov turned into a character from a James Bond film. Denis showed off his hat wielding skills by recreating a scene from the movie. After watching Shapovalov’s deadly throw, host Mayleen Ramey encouraged fans to show us their own hat tricks for a high flying giveaway.
In this giveaway tennis fans were instructed to create their own hat trick and submit to Outside the Ball via social media. The prize for such a feat was the hat worn and used by Denis in his James Bond audition, but the videos had to be good. The tennis star himself had his eye on the prize. Fans from all over the world answered the call, and we narrowed it down to two finalists.
We ended our giveaway with a battle between America and Shapovalov’s home country of Canada. Fans were able to vote for their favorite hat trick, and American @fins.ta.gill came out ahead! Congratulations! Don’t worry, tennis fans. We have more giveaways on the way. You could be our next winner!
