French Open: Novak Djokovic hangs with ball boy, shares drinks
Novak Djokovic made a new friend during a rain delay at the French Open.
World No. 2 Novak Djokovic made an impromptu friend during a rain delay at the French Open on Monday. Up 6-1, 5-2 over Joao Sousa during yesterday’s first-round match, Djokovic invited the ball boy holding an umbrella to come and sit with him.
Then he traded his racket for the umbrella, leaving the ball boy looking extremely nervous that he was now holding the world’s second best tennis player’s racket. Then Novak offered said nervous ball boy a Perrier, probably at no cost to Novak since they’re a French Open sponsor, but he gets all kinds of fan points for the gesture.
Aside from the kid’s nervous shaking and hilarious small talk, the best part is at the :45 second mark where video shows Sousa sitting beneath an umbrella-wielding ball boy. Come on, dude. Novak won the crowd, and he’d go on to win the match in three sets.
