We pretty much all know that many tennis players are frustrated musicians – Serena Williams loves to karaoke, the Bryan twins have a band, etc. So what about a bit of fun by putting the two together? What if you were to connect a tennis player to a song, what song would you link a player to? The songs could be from now or from the past. It could be by an artist who does R&B or pop or the classics or, certainly not my choice, but maybe even heavy metal. Pretty much anything goes. I have come up with my list and I have not put these in any particular order. SOMEONE LIKE YOU: Adele – Serena Williams PARADISE: Coldplay – Roger Federer MORE: Frank Sinatra – Lleyton Hewitt SITTING ON TOP OF THE WORLD: Delta Goodrem – Victoria Azarenka TIME TO SAY GOODBYE: Andrea Bocelli – Ivan Ljubicic SOMEBODY THAT I USED TO KNOW: Gotye – Rafael Nadal WILD ONES: Flo Rida – Michael Llodra IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR: Ray Charles – Novak Djokovic AVE MARIA: Beyonce – Maria Sharapova ROLLERCOASTER: Ronan Keating – Mardy Fish WHAT MAKES YOU BEAUTIFUL: One Direction – Flavia Pennetta GLAD YOU CAME: The Wanted – Venus Williams I WON’T GIVE UP: Jason Mraz – Andy Murray BRAND NEW DAY: Sting – John Isner AIN’T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH: Aretha Franklin – Andy Roddick THE LONG AND WINDING ROAD: The Beatles – Nicolas Mahut SIMPLY THE BEST: Tina Turner – Bob and Mike Bryan SWEET CAROLINE: Neil Diamond – yes, yes okay I know obvious, Caroline Wozniacki KUNG FU FIGHTING: Carl Douglas – Li Na BODY AND SOUL: Tony Bennett – Jo Wilfried Tsonga So what do you think of the list?
