Wimbledon is some craic if you replace the rackets with random objects


Wimbledon is a terrific event that shows the world's greatest athletes battling it out to be crowned The Best One At This Particular Sport. But spade a spade, it can get a tad monotonous watching these sports folk essentially hitting a ball back and forth over the net for hours at a time. It's only natural that the mind tends to wander.


Personally, my mind wanders into the strangest of places, where the players' rackets are replaced by random objects, but they still participate in the match with stern game faces on.

Andrey Kuznetsov got a balloon because he was a very good boy during training yesterday


Kei Nishikori uses a packet of silica gel for a racket and while that's a very weird thing to do, we mustn't laugh
