WATCH: Tennis Player Novak Djokovic A Good Sport After Young Boy’s Marriage Proposal

While practicing his serve for the U.S. Open, Novak Djokovic was surprised by a fan’s unusual request.

“Djokovic, will you marry me?” a young boy in the crowd shouted.

While the two won’t be walking down the aisle any time soon (for a number of reasons) the classy tennis ace did invite the kid down to whack some balls around later gave him a hug. Djokovic later went on to handily defeat Italy’s Paolo Lorenzi in his first round match at the Open.

Coincidence? We think not.

    That’s so cute :) Djokovic is such a people person, such a good person to hold the title of “Best Tennis Player” (or something of the sort).
    I do very much enjoy watching him :D

    @Triple S: Except he’s not even the “Best Tennis Player”, maybe last year, but certainly not this year and not of all time.

    Was the kid sincere or just being a smart ass?

    If the kid was really gay/bi and sincere and that confident way to go for him.
