"Making sure I still remember how to hit trick shots," Federer wrote.

Federer's 22-second clip got more than 3.5 million views on Twitter. Federer's recovery from the knee surgery was set to keep him out of the 2020 French Open, but that tournament has since been postponed until September due to the coronavirus pandemic.
