WTA stars including Andreescu, Osaka and Barty take part in The Real Heroes Project

The WTA have united with 13 other professional sports leagues including the ATP, NBA, NFL and WWE among others to dedicate their jerseys and uniforms to a special hero who is helping in the Coronavirus pandemic.

This is called The Real Heroes Project and has seen some of the top names in women's tennis play their part; including Naomi Osaka, Ashleigh Barty, Bianca Andreescu, Coco Gauff and Victoria Azarenka.

They will cover their name on their jerseys/uniforms; then replace them with the specific hero. As a result of this, they have asked for fans to do the same; then use the hashtag #TheRealHeroes to show their efforts off.
