Recently, a video of Djokovic surfaced in which he is playing ‘Guess Whom’ with Andy Lee. Both Novak Djokovic and Andy Lee had to guess each other’s players. During the game, there came a point when Novak lost his cool after incorrectly guessing his colleague and rival Roger Federer as the calmest person. To his surprise, Andy had chosen the Serb as the calmest person. 

After the whole episode played out, the World No. 1 player didn’t take it too well and mockingly overturned the table before he was seen walking out.

Over the years, Novak and Roger have shared a great rivalry. However, the Serb has edged past the Swiss in recent years. He has beaten Federer in three Wimbledon finals (2014, 2015, 2019). In last season’s Australian Open, Djokovic handed Federer a semi-final loss. It happened to be Roger’s last match of the season, as he had to undergo knee surgery soon after. 

At the moment, the Serb is looking forward to the first Major of the new year. He will face French tennis player Jeremy Chardy in his opening round match.
