Q & A with Novak Djokovic (Humour)

MakeTimeForSports spoke to the men’s No.1 seed before the US Open.

2)  Are you going to be donning a blonde wig again, anytime soon?

3) Maria Sharapova said she’d prefer it if you were wearing a skirt while mimicking her…

4) Maria says she’ll be  scripting a commercial too, to get her own back…

The more the merrier…

5) 57-2. Thoughts on that?

64-2 soon. I hope. I’m no machine and certainly not mechanic.
