Insane Novak Djokovic photo goes viral

It’s not often anyone other than Gael Monfils produces the most spectacular moment in a match involving the freakish Frenchman — but Novak Djokovic is no regular athlete.

The world number one was forced to stretch to his absolute limits in the Dubai Championships semi-final showdown between the pair, saving three consecutive match points before winning 2-6 7-6 (8) 6-1).

Did we mention he stretched to his limits? Check out this screen shot from the tennis broadcast of the Serbian retrieving a shot behind the baseline:

Monfils fell to 17-0 on the main tour against Djokovic and he won’t get any closer to winning than he did here.

He led 6-3 in the second-set tie-breaker but Djokovic saved all three match points as his forehand forced errors.

Djokovic converted his eighth set point when Monfils double-faulted. He cruised the rest of the way, winning 2-6, 7-6 (8), 6-1.

“It’s like being on the edge of a cliff,” Djokovic said about the match points. “You know there is no way back so you have to jump over and try to find a way to survive I guess and pray for the best and believe that you can make it, that there is something that is going to help you.

“That’s one of the things that I feel at the moment. OK, one point away, one shot away. There is no going back. This is it. I accept the situation and try to make the most out of it.” Djokovic has now won 20 straight matches on tour and remains undefeated in 2020.
