Novak Djokovic had his Team Europe team-mates in stitches after cracking a joke following Roger Federer’s near-impossible shot during his final match as a professional before he retires. The Swiss star competed alongside Rafael Nadal in the doubles at the Laver Cup in the O2 Arena.
After Federer’s shot went through a small hole in the net, in the team huddle Djokovic made sure to remind the 20-time Grand Slam champion that he still has it. “The precision is there, buddy,” the Serbian quipped before laughing with his team-mates.
Federer replied: “It wasn’t meant to be!” Though Nadal admitted he wasn’t aware of what happened. “I didn’t see it at all,” Nadal told his team-mates as Djokovic replied saying he has never seen that happen before.
The 41-year-old then said: “But my eye was still good, I saw that it went through.” Team World was eventually awarded the point despite Frances Tiafoe and Jack Sock both claiming that Federer deserved it on his final match.
