In 2020, tennis fans were not able to see too much tennis. This is because of the coronavirus pandemic that canceled many events of the season. Despite this, the year did not fail to provide us with some hilarious moments. Check out some of those moments that feature players like Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
Rafael Nadal and Others in the Funniest Moments of 2020
One of the funniest moments in 2020 took place at the Italian Open. There, Novak Djokovic won a game during his match, and instead of saying, ‘Game Djokovic’, the umpire said, ‘Game Federer’. Unfortunately for the umpire, this moment did not go unnoticed by anybody.
Moving on, Stan Wawrinka was part of the list of funny moments due to his incredibly short appearance. In Qatar, he walked onto the court and it immediately started raining. The Swiss star was forced to go back after being on the court for just 20 seconds. What a short appearance!
In addition to Stan, Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem were also featured on the list. In the video, it was shown how they are friendly during practice but fierce rivals on the court. This wasn’t particularly funny but it showcased the bond between tennis players on the Tour.
Other Funny Moments
One of the last funny moments of the video featured none other than Benoit Paire. He was playing the ATP Cup and after his match, the interviewer asked him about starting the season off in Australia. The Frenchman immediately replied, “The girls are very nice.” After this, the crowd broke into laughter.
The 2020 tennis season clearly had a lot of funny moments despite the lack of events. Considering that we will probably see a lot more tournaments in 2021, fans can surely expect to see more hilarious moments.
