WATCH: Novak Djokovic Endorses Gael Monfils’ New Program




French tennis player Gael Monfils recently announced the launch of a new program on Twitch called ‘Catchup,’ which telecasted its first episode this Sunday. The promotion by World No.1 Novak Djokovic added an extra charm to the launch. The Serbian legend took care of his friend and endorsed the show on Twitter.

The show will talk about daily tennis affairs and share match highlights and results. On Sundays, Gael Monfils and World No.5 Elina Svitolina will themselves review and discuss the recent happenings in tennis. Moreover, popular tennis broadcaster Tennis TV will support the launch.

“It should be fun and exciting!”- Novak Djokovic

The 17-time Grand Slam champion congratulated Monfils and Svitolina and wished them the best for their new venture.

“It should be fun, It should be exciting. Can’t wait to see Gael and Elina break it down for you. See you soon,” said Djokovic.

In the first episode, Gael and Elina deliberated on recent news regarding the Italian Open and German Open 2020. With the help of videos, they provided a succinct analysis.

After getting eliminated from Round 2 of both the Italian and German Open 2020, Gael Monfils will face Alexander Bublik in the first round of the French Open 2020. The 34-year-old has a lot to prove in the Grand Slam.

Meanwhile, World No.5 Elina Svitolina will face Varvara Gracheva in the first round of the French Open 2020. As big players like Ashleigh Barty and Naomi Osaka are not playing, it is a good opportunity for the Ukrainian to reach the later stages of the tournament and even win it.

On the other hand, Djokovic is coming to Roland Garros after winning the Italian Open 2020. He is unbeaten in 2020 so far, but the French Open will definitely be his biggest challenge. He will look to end the season on a high by winning his 2nd French Open title.
