Going on month after month without official competition, players find themselves needing to invent even more creative ways to break up the monotony of training. 

So 15-year-old Darja Suvirdjonkova initiated the #Challenge2BallsAndRacket nominating three friends to record and post videos of themselves juggling a racquet and two tennis balls:

Sixteen-year-old Slovenian Bor Artnak then accepted the challenge, adding a ball-bashing twist at the end:

"It was a tough one...let’s say I did it in first try anyway," Artnak wrote on Instagram before nominating Kaja Juvan, winner of seven ITF singles titles at just 19:

"I think I'm on my way to being qualified for the circus," Juvan said in the caption of her video.

That circus could soon include more top-level prospects, with Iga Swiatek and Marta Kostyuk among the names the Slovenian added to the list. 

It turns out the kids are not just all right, but also multitalented.
