However, with the presence of Djokovic, things could lighten up in the first car, as he goes by the tag of the ‘Djoker’. Even in car number 3, given the presence of Benoit Paire, things could get out of control in an amusing manner. Meanwhile, Tsitsipas could be the one to break the ice in car number 2.
