Novak Djokovic Plays Ridiculous Return Shot While Doing The Splits

Novak Djokovic Plays Ridiculous Return Shot While Doing The Splits

Novak Djokovic showed he's not human with an outrageous shot in his 2-6 7-6 6-1 victory over Gaël Monfils on Friday.

The Serbian overcame three match points to seal a place in the Dubai Tennis championships final and set up a clash with Stefanos Tsitsipas on centre court on Saturday.

And Djokovic added another stunning shot to his highlight reel when he somehow managed to return the ball as his footing slipped and he ended up doing the splits.

Just look at the position he finds himself in and yet somehow he plays the ball back perfectly with complete ease. Incredible athleticism.

The 32-year old also showed his class when he conceded a point at a key moment during the game, displaying a superb level of sportsmanship.

The 17-time Grand Slam winner took on Greek Tsitsipas, a man who recently won the Marseille open, in the final and continued his incredible unbeaten run in 2020 with a fifth Dubai titlef following a 6-3, 6-4 victory.

Reflecting on his latest triumph, Djokovic told ATP: "I think this has been one of the best starts of all the seasons I had in my career. I feel great on the court. I've been playing great tennis on the hard courts. That is my most successful and preferred surface.

"I'm just grateful that I'm playing well, feeling well. I've won many matches now in a row. I'll try to keep that run going. It's just way too early to speak about how long that run might go, the calculations.

"I try not to think about predictions. I try to focus on what I need to do with myself and my team in order to thrive every day, in order to try to play as best as I can every single match. That's the main focus."
