An Amazing Moment in a Tennis Match Liked by President Donald Trump

The US President came across a video on Twitter that captured a moment that happened at a match between Novak Djokovic’s coach Goran Ivanisevic and Mark Philippoussis.

As the video shows, Philippoussis was serving to Ivanisevic at 3-3 in the second set. He won the first three points very easily as Goran was unable to take his serve. Given that the first set had slipped from his grasp, Goran clearly wasn’t too happy with himself. So, he decided to let someone else play for him – the ball girl.

The ball girl initially did not want to play but Goran rather charmingly insisted that she do so. She finally did play against Mark in what was an incredibly funny rally where Mark used his head to play some shots. In the end, the ball girl won the point as Mark kicked the ball into the net. This display ended up amusing both Goran and the crowd, who were delighted by this hilarious exchange.

Fans are waiting to see several such amazing moments given that tennis has been on hold for several months now. The good news is, they won’t have to wait much longer.

The tennis season is going to return soon with events lined up in August, leading up to one of the biggest events – the US Open. However, many players seem uncertain about playing here due to the various restrictions. Hopefully, the US Open 2020 will turn out to be a grand success all the same.
