Second Serve


Novak Djokovic gets a stern talking to by his wife Jelena after a 12-minute video of Nole’s practice on Facebook Live. Problem is, the entire world wasn’t supposed to see it. Ah, but we did. And we liked (go to 12:00ish on the video to see for yourself)....

When Djokovic reaches for the camera to film himself at the end of the video, Jelena gives him a piece of her mind. "How are you behaving yourself? For heaven's sake," she says (video translated by the Telegraph). "'Thank you, love. Thank you.' Isn’t that what you should be saying?"

Then she makes the classic face that could become a universal emoji someday. Oops

This one on the right:

This was actually quite a comical episode, and you know what? Novak wanted to give fans a glimpse inside of his life, and he achieved it superbly. Love is not perfect, folks. Good on Jelena for calling Novak out for his manners. She spent 12 minutes filming him and deserved a little more respect for that.

Anybody who has ever been in a relationship knows what this is about. True love takes work, and sometimes the roses come with a few thorns. This was clearly an accident, but it was a happy one in a lot of ways. We got to see Novak and Jelena have a goofy, petty moment that was completely real.

In a world full of fake, it’s nice to have some real!
