Novak Djokovic managed to seal his pass to the third round of Wimbledon on Wednesday after beating Kevin Anderson in three sets after a great game in which he barely made mistakes.
However, at various points in the game, Anderson demanded Djokovic, who had to resort to almost extreme postures to return the ball at some points. In fact, a photo of Djokovic with both legs stretched to the maximum has gone viral to return a ball.
A photo with which Djokovic himself wanted to joke after the game with this comment: “Spider-Man is back hahaha. Let the memes start.” It is not the first time that Djokovic is hunted in this way when returning a ball during a match since, During his semi-final match against Gael Monfils in the 2020 Dubai tournament, the Serb staged a similar coup.
