Former @UVAMensTennis standout Somdev Devvarman is working to make a difference in India. Devvarman is championing a cause called Life is A Ball where he is working to support those who support the sport of tennis, “tennis markers, ball kids and support staff – the heartbeat of any tennis body in the country”. He speaks about the program in the video above. For more information on the charity, click here.

Former @UVAMensTennis player JC Aragone shared how he is working through #SocialDistancing in this amusing Tik-Tok/Twitter vid. If you need a good chuckle, give it a watch.

Hoos a Legend
