The (British) Lawn Tennis Association has issued new guidelines on playing under relaxed lockdown conditions, including these gems:
  • Initial your own balls before stepping on to court.
  • And don’t, on any account, touch your opponent’s balls with your hands.

To clarify how the second rule applies to CDG members:
it is OK to touch your opponent's balls with a knife, provided that he does not touch the handle and only the blade contacts his balls. And it is OK to touch the actual balls with your tongue, but only once the scrotum has been removed with the knife, wearing disposable gloves which should be removed immediately and washed with soap or alcohol-based sanitiser for at least 20 seconds. :rocksss:

Is it necessary to use sanitizer on the balls before eating them?

No - provided you have followed the above instructions carefully the medical experts assure us that it is perfectly safe :)
