Give up, everyone. Kristie Ahn has already won self-isolation.
As people search for ways to pass the time in coronavirus-enforced quarantine, they could do worse than grab a glass of wine, sit back and enjoy the American tennis star’s Twitter timeline in all its glory.
World No. 96 Ahn has been beating the boredom and keeping her followers entertained with a series of TikTok videos that show she may well have a career in front of the camera whenever she chooses to walk away from tennis.
A mix of seriously weird, at times questionable but often hilarious content has been steadily filling her profile as the 27-year-old finds what may be her true calling in life — all while maintaining a safe distance from the nearest human.
Before we get into the myriad of crazy clips, normally lasting no longer than 15 seconds, Ahn has so graciously offered to the internet, special mention must go to her finest contribution that dropped during the week.
After alerting her followers that a “special project” was in the works, Ahn showed off her own coronavirus song and accompanying video clip in a parody of Lil Boosie’s Wipe Me Down, with the help of fellow pros Jamie Loeb and Evan King in the production department.

Aussie tennis star Lizette Cabrera said on Twitter Ahn’s creation was “one of the best things to come out of quarantine” while American star and Ahn’s friend Nicole Gibbs joked: “I don’t know you.”
Other players have given Ahn a virtual thumbs up for her social media work. In response to a video many pros could obviously relate to, world No. 158 Sachia Vickery said she “felt this in my soul” while Alison Riske had a good laugh.
Among the plethora of videos have been Ahn’s imitation of an umpire dealing with a noisy crowd.
