Novak Djokovic takes on the challenge

The Serbian star had announced earlier that he was interested in Andy’s challenge and would certainly give it a go with his wife Jelena.

Like always, Novak was true to his promise as he appeared with Jelena to give the challenge a shot. Surprisingly, both of them were phenomenal with the volley with Jelena pulling out some interesting shots out of her volley. Novak might be the best tennis player in the world currently but his wife certainly had an answer to all his attacks.

The best thing was that the two were able to successfully complete the challenge. Novak signified this by tossing the ball up in the air with a terrified Jelena escaping so that the ball doesn’t hit her.
