Novak Djokovic makes a new friend during rain delay at Roland Garros

Tennis player and world number 2 Novak Djokovic won his first round match at the French Open earlier today. It was a gloomy and rainy day in Paris for the second day of action at Roland Garros.

During a rain delay of about 10 minutes, players where on court waiting while ball boys were holding umbrellas so they wouldn’t get wet. During that rain delay, Djokovic invited the ball boy who was holding the umbrella for him to sit with him while they waited for the rain to pass.

The ball boy sat down with him, they chatted and even had a drink of water. It was a great way to spend a time that is mostly stressful for all players and crowd, waiting for play to start due to weather.

So Novak manage to get the best out of that situation, he made a new friend and wishes to see him again on another match. This moment definitely would be a highlight for the young boy who is also a tennis player himself (as Djokovic said in the press conference).
