Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic had a little fun time during the on-going Australian Open. He was seen playing a modified version of “Guess Who” game with comedian Andy Lee in a show broadcasted on Channel Nine.
Each of them was given a famous personality that the other one had to guess from among a set set of other celebrities using a set of yes/no questions as clues. While Lee had to guess Australian tennis player Samantha Stosur, Djokovic had to name himself.
The duo began what was an entertaining watch with a few funny as well as awkward moments. Djokovic faced an awkward moment when Lee asked him whether the person was stylish enough to be used as a fashion ambassador by a high-end clothing brand.
After a few seconds of awkward silence, Djokovic said that she wasn’t.
Eventually, when Djokovic had only a few cards left to guess from, he asked whether the person was calm. Apparently, Andy Lee seemed to think Djokovic was calm, but the tennis star himself did not and he guessed the person as Roger Federer. Djokovic threw the table over as he realised his guess turned out to be incorrect.
Too good. 😂

Novak Djokovic into the 3rd round of Australian Open 2020
In a quest to defend his title, Djokovic started the 2020 edition of the Australian Open with two wins. He was drawn against Japanese Tatsuma Ito in the first round which he won comfortably in straight sets- 6-1, 6-4, 6-2. His second-round clash against Jan-Lennard Struff, however, was not as straight-forward although he eventually managed to win.
Djokovic showed a few lapses in concentration against Struff as the German capitalised on them. After the first set went into tie-breaker, Djokovic won the second set quite comfortably. Struff came back in the third set with a 6-2 win, but Djokovic proved too much for him in the end as he won the fourth set 6-1, and the match.
