Yesterday was a rest day in Morelia. We don't have to tell you what Magnus Carlsen was doing: playing tennis of course! Levon Aronian and his second Gabriel Sargissian also took a turn.


Of course, it was a joke when we wrote Magnus's weak point was his backhand...



...because, well, look at this technique!



Take that, Levon!



Let's see how Levon responds...



...well he returns the ball in original style...



...is that Speedy Gonzalez I'm playing...??



Now we need some rest, you play, Gabriel!



No problem. I can do this. I'm ready for the kid.



You stick to the chess, Levon.



You ain't seen nothing yet, Gabriel!
