The former World No.1 Novak Djokovic gave the loveliest surprise to the female tennis players with flowers in the locker room at Roland Garros. He is well known for being the funny guy on tour. He surely never disappoints. He sent two large bouquets of exquisite rose to the ladies room and swept them off their feet.
Djokovic will enter the French Open with a new coach in Andre Agassi. The world number two will be looking to start afresh, as he tries to banish the memories of the last year.
This is what Djokovic told the press ahead of the French Open,
“He was always there and tried talking, praises and positive about me in general, which I appreciated very much,” Djokovic told reporters at Roland Garros.
But the Serb was in a magnanimous mood ahead of his third round match against Diego Schwartzman on Friday, as he surprised the female tennis players with a lovely gesture.
What was the reason behind his extremely kind gesture is still a mystery. We might not know why he did but his actions are appreciated. The news spread like wildfire on social media.
British number three Naomi Broady acted quickly and posted a picture of her holding those gifted flowers on Instagram.

Broady wrote: “When Novak Djokovic surprises the women’s locker room with two huge bouquets of beautiful roses, so you take them all home for yourself…just kidding. Merci Novak! 😁🌹”
She also joked that she would take them home with her followed by a bait to the World Champion, Sir Andy Murruy to follow suit before the tournament ends.
“Sir Andy Murray we’re now awaiting yours… 😉,” she added.
Rolland Garros was in dire need of some upliftment of spirits. In its first week it has already seen many tears and wounds. Today’s David Goffin being the most recent victim of an ankle injury from a gruesome accident after which he had to retire. The flowers will surely help the mood of the town.
