NFL legend Tom Brady gets an unexpected call from Canadian tennis star Leylah Fernandez to judge his quarterbacking skills

Canadian tennis star Leylah Fernandez is one of the brightest prospects for women’s tennis. The 19-year-old last played at Roland Garros. Showing good form in the Grand Slam on clay, she entered the quarter-finals. However, she lost to Martina Trevisan. Notably, the Canadian suffered a grade 3 stress fracture in that game and was knocked out.

She failed to recover in time for the 2022 Wimbledon Championships and is currently aiming to be fully fit by the end of July. Recently, the 19-year-old posted a video of herself playing with a rugby ball.
