WTA Best of 2020: Funny moments

The WTA best of 2020 series continues with a selection of light-hearted moments from this year featuring the likes of Naomi Osaka, Daria Gavrilova, Barbora Strycova and Hsieh Su-Wei. I hope this post will make you laugh as it’s much needed this year. There’s also links below to the last four years of funny moments. Next up on mootennis.com will be the countdown of my favourite WTA matches.

Funny moments 2020 โฌ‡

1. I nearly died!

Osaka’s first press conference of the year was a hoot as always as she told the story of paddle boarding during her off-season travels.

2. Yes boss!

Strycova and Hsieh โค.

3. Konta’s bird incident

Jo’s clarification made me laugh ๐Ÿ˜‚.

4. You do?!

When Vekic finds out that Stephens and Kerber are actually playing in the first round ๐Ÿ˜‚. Note, that Stephens and Kerber didn’t actually end up playing each other after withdrawals in the draw.

5. She hung up on me!ย 

Loved this. Ash Barty answering a journalist’s phone during a press conference in Adelaide.

6. Hi mum… you’ve done it again

Andy’s savage review of Judy’s Instagram post ๐Ÿคฃ.

7. Dasha dancing ๐Ÿ’ƒ

Dasha is a must follow on Instagram.

8. Why am I lobbing there?!

The virtual Madrid Open was an innovative idea during the first lockdown. Andy Murray’s commentary during his matches was one of the highlights.

9. Marija Cicak trying to close an umbrella

Addictive viewing.

10. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Begu’s reaction ha!

11. What are you doing?!

This was genius. From Osaka’s response to her mum clapping, to asking where dad was ๐Ÿ˜‚ .

12. ๐Ÿ˜ท

Muchova about to resume a match with her mask still on.

13. Imitating Barbora

Daria Gavrilova was comedy gold all year. This impression of Barbora Strycova was uncanny, especially the shoulder roll.

14. Hsieh Su-Wei

We love Hsieh Su-Wei.

15. Bara takes a tumble

The perfect way to end this year’s funny moments with Barbora Strycova ๐Ÿ˜‚.

  1. Some good ones there James.

    From last year. We all know about Andy and Jamie Murray, but it’s less well known that they have a brother called Duncan who isn’t very good at tennis ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. BTW, the back story of Ash’s phone call is that Kez is a huge fan of Ash’s but got stage fright when she discovered she was actually talking to Ash (which is why she put the ‘phone down). That building behind Angie, Sloane and Donna looks like Penfolds winery, one of the top winemakers in Australia (with prices to match for their most prestigious wines such as Grange).

    DariaG is a star too, she ought to do more player impressions IMO.
