With the current lockdown across the globe, there is a financial crisis in many people's lives and British tennis player Naomi Broady, 30, is one of them. Naomi, who is currently ranked 499th in singles, recently revealed the uncertainty about the tennis season. She is considering taking up a job at a supermarket for survival.
