Tennis Players Who Are Fun to Watch on Court
"Fun to watch" is not defined from an artistic perspective, but more from the players' personalities and their antics on the court.
After the special on Djokovic's funny moments on camera, this slideshow focuses on the funny moments from other tennis players captured on video.
These are the moments that bring in a bit of laughter around the court and make the players relax for a moment or two in the middle of a tense battle on court.
There are not many players who can do justice to this "role," though.
Players like Ivanisevic, Noah, Bahrami, Leconte and Djokovic are the ones who dominate the comedy theatre in tennis.
Let us look at the list of 10 such videos.
