Man on a mission, the Serb is enjoying his time in New York. From spectacular performances to off-court banter, he has been at the heart of entertainment.

However, while he lives up to his No. 1 rank with his dominating tennis, he fails to meet his ‘musician’ expectations. The 34-year-old took a break from his spectacular gameplay as he explored the talents hidden up his sleeve. Although, many would suggest he stick to the racquet.

A newly emerged video had fans in splits, as Djokovic turned into a meme, courtesy of his antics with the saxophone.

Opera much?

Twitter erupted as Novak’s humoristic side was on full display. In a hilarious video, the World No. 1 enjoyed some banter as he got trolled for his not-so-sensational music skills. When TV presenter, Barbara Schett-Eagle, praised Novak for how well he handles pressure, fans expected an insightful video on the play. However, what came following was hilarious enough to leave the World No. 1 in splits.

Responding to a video of him being trolled, he said, “You guys, you made me laugh. This is great. That’s awesome work from the tech-team of Eurosport. Fantastic.” 

On the business end of things, Novak has been equally the entertainer he is off-court. With one too many emphatic displays, he is continuing his successful run in the tournament.

However, in his recent outing, Kie Nishikori gave him a huge scare, toppling him in the first set. Regardless, in a sheer test of his character, Novak came back from behind and defeated the Japanese youngster.

From Naomi Osaka to Stefanos Tsitsipas, the tournament hasn’t been very kind to the veterans. Notably, coming on the back of a disappointing outing at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, fans wonder what the odds of another upset for the Serbian ‘G.O.A.T’?
