This or That #7: Tick Tock Tennis

This or That is back and we have James from Tick Tock Tennis, a social media account that shares tennis news, interviews, and opinions on Bluesky, Threads, Instagram, and Twitter. If you missed the previous six, check out Jon Mackenzie’s, Dave Black’s, Ashwin Raman’s, Proxima Jornada’s, Machel St Patrick Hewitt’s, and Maryam Naz’s answers.
