In preparation for his return to the turf at the first Mallorca championships, the world number 1 took the time to beat her future doubles partner, six-year-old son Stefan Djokovic.
Looks like Stefan could take the ball on the march like his famous father and really rip his forehand.

Stefan's lasso over his head is reminiscent of Rafa Nadal, whom Novak Djokovic dethroned in an epic four hour and eleven minute semi-final on the way to his second Roland Garros crown.
The Australian Open champion will start his Wimbledon preparation with the double draw of the Mallorca Championships. Wild Card Djokovic is partner of the Spaniard Carlos Gomez-Herrara. The pair will play against Tomislav Brkic and Nikola Cacic in the opening round.
Qué gran día! 💚

The 34-year-old Serb helped open the Center Court of the Mallorca Championships in a doubles exhibition game that featured Mutua Madrid Open Tournament Director Feliciano Lopez and Indian Wells Tournament Director Tommy Haas. Djokovic has rented a house in Mallorca where he will prepare for his Wimbledon title defense.
The number 2 in the world, Daniil Medvedev, is the top seed in the draw for the Mallorca singles. Medvedev, who lost to Djokovic in the Australian Open final, has a bye in the first round and will play either Lloyd Harris or Corentin Moutet in his opener.
