Novak Djokovic had a mixed season in 2016. But during the first half of the season, he was on top of the world. Having traveled to the United States to defend the Sunshine Double of Indian Wells and Miami Masters 1000 events in March.
On his day off, the Serbian appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The two had fun together.
The charming Novak Djokovic
While Ellen DeGeneres welcomed Novak Djokovic, he said he met for the first time in Monte-Carlo. It was there that Ellen first suggested that he come to the show.
Speaking of spending some time in Los Angeles thanks to the Sunshine Double, Novak has turned on the old charm. He points out that the next day he will go to Miami, before tactfully adding that he wanted to go out with Ellen on his day off.
Even Ellen is no stranger to fascination and soon sparked her charm. DeGeneres continues to tell the first time that the duo met in a Country Club in Monte-Carlo. Djokovic was swimming in the pool when Ellen and his wife Portia recognized the player.
Check out their fun interaction below.
Lists the recent titles Novak has won and adds “You couldn’t play better.”
Novak agrees and also says that he is at the peak and is experiencing the best moment of his career.
We all agree, hindsight makes this statement even more interesting. Eventually he would continue to complete his career in the Grand Slam when he won the elusive French Open. But it would lose its shape and balance to lower the ranks of the sport. He failed to defend all his majors. His ranking dropped and at one point he was also out of the top 20.
But like a true champion, he hasn’t been down for too long. It is again on top of the first place in the world and currently holds the titles of Wimbledon and Australian Open.
Returning to the Ellen Show, the couple also played a small tennis game called “Smash Your Head”.
Surprisingly, it was Ellen who got the first hit right.
