Watch: Djokovic Kicking Grass in Paris

By Alberto Amalfi | @Tennis_Now | Thursday, November 3, 2022

Lawn lord Novak Djokovic is kicking grass in Paris.

Djokovic captured his seventh Wimbledon crown in July and continues his quest for a seventh Rolex Paris Masters title this week running the hard yards on the soft surface.

The 35-year-old Serbian grew up on a mountain and shows his climbing skills trekking up the grassy side of the Accor Arena alongside his physio.

Could we see steeplechase in the 21-time Grand Slam champion's future?

Djokovic said this isn't the first time he's scaled the grassy summit.

"I have done it in the past several years ago, and sometimes I was training outdoors, doing some exercises in front of that practice bubble, and it was nice weather," Djokovic told the media in Paris. "We took out our shoes and we just did some barefoot grounding on the grass. We just felt like, okay, let's just hit this hill. Let's make a sprint and compete and have fun.

"My physio lost, obviously. It was just one of these moments that some people captured around. There were some cameras. It was nice."
