Novak Djokovic channelled his inner Cristiano Ronaldo over the last weekend during his ATP Tour Finals 2020 campaign. The 17-time Grand Slam champion is known to be friends with the five-time Ballon d'Or winner and seized the opportunity to replicate his famous 'Siu' celebration after tackling the Nitto ATP Finals Pyramid Challenge. The video certainly drew a lot of attraction with even the Juventus ace commenting on the 33-year-old's celebration.
Novak Djokovic attempted the ATP Pyramid Challenge over the weekend, where the Serbian ace had to make a pyramid from tennis balls inside two minutes. The 17-time Grand Slam champion, in his typical dramatic fashion, completed the challenge with just one second remaining on the clock. The 33-year-old heaved a sigh of relief and celebrated his achievement by replicating Cristiano Ronaldo's celebration, much to the delight of fans.
ATP Tour shared the snippet of the reigning World No.1 performing the 'siu' celebration on social media and the video soon became viral on Twitter. Djokovic also asked Cristiano Ronaldo's opinion on his effort and the Juventus ace who rarely responds on social media, lauded the Serbian tennis ace's effort.
