The reactions to the video poured in soon after with Kyrgios mocking World No. 1 Djokovic’s impersonation. Earlier, the Serbian had sent a list of requests to Tennis Australia to better the conditions players are in during the quarantine. Even though the requests were not for himself but rather his fellow players in Melbourne Park, Novak received heavy criticism.

In the video, Elliot has made a hilarious version of the Serbian’s list of requests. Additionally, the video has now got the attention of the 18-time Grand Slam champion Chris Evert.

The retired former World No. 1 Chris has lived one of the most prestigious tennis careers in history. For record 13 straight years, the now 66-year-old won at least one Grand Slam every year. To date, she still holds the record.

Recently, Elliot’s video caught even her attention. While congratulating the talent of the man, she responded with a simple ‘priceless’ to the video. Indeed, the video has been a great way to deal with the contingencies of the Australian Open 2021.

Considering that this video reaches others as well, there will be a lot of reactions to it. The entire credit goes to Loney for his inexplicable talent.

Apart from the video, the balcony of Novak Djokovic has become a tourist site for people in Adelaide. The 8-time Australian Open has been interacting and dancing with fans during the quarantine.
