Tsonga, Verdasco play mini tennis on high speed train

Finally I'm back! I've been busy catching up with work after a short trip back to hometown.

Novak Djokovic and Svetlana Kuznetsova won Beijing Open last weekend while Jo-Wilfried Tsonga took the Rakuten Japan Open title.

This week all the players (excluding names like Roger Federer and Andy Murray) are in Shanghai for the Shanghai ATP Masters 1000.

A gimmick tennis court were setup in one of Shanghai's world's fastest commercial high-speed trains.

Named
the “fastest tennis in the world", Tsonga took on Fernando Verdasco on an exhibition tennis as the train reached a cruising speed of 268 mph during the 7 minutes, 20 seconds it took to make the 18.6-mile trip from Longyard Rail Road station in Pudong to Pudong International Airport.
