Watch out for those drop shots! Italian duo display incredible rooftop rally between...


A pair of would-be tennis players in Italy have been filmed playing a match between their rooftops while in quarantine. 

The footage, posted on Reddit and titled 'Can't play tennis in this quarantine? Think again' shows a woman dressed in sports leggings and a white jacket while standing on her wide, rooftop terrace.  

A videographer films the woman rallying shots back and worth with her female neighbour opposite in the 20-second footage. 

It is believed the game took place in the comune of Finale Legure in northern Italy.

The woman darts around the balcony and manages to return every shot. At one moment her racket nearly hits the camera as she races to meet the ball.  

One Reddit user joked:  'I would get too serious... go for a shot I shouldn't and end up over the ledge.'

Italy has been under lockdown longer than any other European country after a nationwide quarantine was imposed on March 9 as the country was devastated by the virus.
