His sport of choice is tennis and not golf, and yet Bob Bryan delivered a birdie at London’s O2 Arena over the weekend. He took a spin with drone video at the ATP World Tour Finals venue that provided aerial looks at a few practice sessions. Among those featured included Nicolas Mahut, Fabio Fognini and Roger Federer, who amusingly waved to the camera toward the clip’s end.
“Flying my new toy on a practice day at the ATP World Tour Finals,” read Bryan’s caption on his YouTube video, which saw more than 8,800 views by press time. He wielded a Phantom 3 Professional for the shoot, made by DJI, the world leader in so-called “aerial solutions.” Bob shared of the exploit elsewhere on social media to boot.
Bob and closely acquainted fellow legend Mike Bryan are the No. 1 doubles seeds in the ATP WTF draw (holy acronyms!), and they’ve laid claim to the season-ending championship four times to date. Taking the title again this month will require much more than a bird’s-eye view, though it’s an amuse-bouche for now.
