Venus and Serena Williams are tennis’s preeminent siblings, and these two youngsters in Japan will be hoping to follow in their footsteps.

Six-year-old Yu and four-year-old Ko are two aspiring players who have already grabbed the attention of the ATP Tour and impressed Judy Murray, the tennis coach and mother of superstar Andy Murray.

She wrote on Twitter, “Kids learn best by copying. Here’s two kids showing what they have picked up by watching Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic on their screens.”

Video here shows the brothers practicing backhands outside their home in Fukuoka.

The Instagram page run by the pair’s father, Owaki Kosuke, is dedicated to their sporting exploits, with recent videos showing them practicing serves, volleys, and balance (see here, here, and here). Credit: @JiroNosuke via Storyful
