Looking at the practice session, most of the fans might believe that the two players are simply practicing with each other. But for the hardcore tennis fan and personality, the situation emits a sense of deja vu. The training sessions of the 24-time grand slam champion reminded Rob Koenig, the tennis commentator why he might be training with him.

He wrote, “I remember when Stan was giving him some tough matches, every tournament I was showing up at after those matches, he was practicing with…..Stan! 🧠” Thus, once again drawing attention of the tennis fans toward the famous practice between Stanislas Wawrinka and Djokovic.

While many are excited as they see the Serbian and the Spaniard train together, they are reminded of the last time the duo trained at the same time. Although, Djokovic was left a little uncomfortable then.
