Why Tennis Players Don’t Have Drivers Licenses

In the world of professional tennis, where athletes jet-set across the globe, living out of suitcases and competing in tournaments, there exists a peculiar phenomenon: many tennis players don’t possess driving licenses. This seemingly odd situation is a result of their unique lifestyle and the perks that come with being a top-tier tennis player.

One of the primary reasons tennis players often forego obtaining a driving license is their frequent travel schedule. Unlike most people who have a home base and a regular routine, tennis players are constantly on the move, traveling from one tournament to another. As such, they often find it impractical to maintain a car or bother with the process of obtaining a license, as they rarely spend enough time in one place to justify the effort.

Instead of driving themselves, tennis players rely on a network of tournament drivers and chauffeurs provided by the tournaments or their sponsors. These drivers ensure that the players are transported safely and comfortably between their accommodations, practice courts, and tournament venues. This arrangement not only frees the players from the responsibility of driving but also allows them to focus more on their game and physical preparation.

Perhaps the most amusing aspect of this situation occurs when tournaments offer cars as prizes for winning. It’s a comical sight to see a victorious tennis player, celebrated for their exceptional skill on the court, handed the keys to a brand-new car, only to realize that they have no use for it because they can’t drive.

Federico Coria Switches To About Sports Clothing Brand

Federico Coria has recently changed his clothing brand from Hydrogen to About Sports. Interestingly, About Sports is owned by Stefano Cecchi, the previous owner of Hydrogen before selling it.

Federico Coria is the younger brother of the former world number 3, Guillermo Sebastián Coria. Notably, Federico’s preferred playing surface is clay, much like his brother. His most successful Grand Slam performance was at the 2020 French Open, where he reached the third round.

In 2023, Federico achieved his career-high ranking of world number 49. Despite his achievements, he has yet to secure an ATP title. However, his career faced a setback in 2018 when he was suspended for eight months due to his involvement in failing to report a match-fixing attempt and for not cooperating with the investigating authorities.
