It is a well-known fact: Novak Djokovic is a born entertainer, be it on the court or with the press, and he showed it again on Crazy Friday at the Rogers Cup, in Montreal.
During the changeover between the second and third sets of his quarter-final match against Ernests Gulbis, which he won 5-7, 7-6(7), 6-1 after saving two match points, the world number one decided to give the crowd even more of their money’s worth.
While Gulbis had gone to the changing room to change his complete outfit (it was extremely humid), Djokovic took advantage of a change of shirt to delight the crowd with some dance moves:
When he met the press after his doubles match, the Serbian came back on that moment. “It was fun”, he said with a smile. “It was fun. Ernests went to change his clothes. I thought, you know, why not entertain the crowd while he’s out.”
Not one to do things in half measure, he had also started his press meeting with a joke, when questioned about the craziness of the match: “I thought Janko and I did really well. It was a tight match. No, you’re asking singles (laughter)?”
Even past midnight, after a crazy day, Novak Djokovic remains one of the best entertainers of tennis.
