Ready to see if your daily stretching routines or regular yoga sessions put you in the same class as a 24-time major champion?

If so, Novak Djokovic has a “challenge for the brave.”


Last Sunday, the world No. 1 appeared on the CBS program 60 Minutes for an in-depth interview with Jon Wertheim. It received plenty of feedback and engagement, inspiring Djokovic to come up with a clever response on his X (formerly Twitter) account (WATCH HERE).

“I have a lot of people asking me about the piece I did with 60 Minutes, particularly one filming scene that we did in the gym where I was stretching,” he began.

“I thought, ‘why not start a Novak Djokovic flexibility challenge?’ Here we are, for anyone who is willing to do it.


Who could forget when the Belgrade native sat in a split next to Belgian artistic gymnasts Nina Derwael and Maellyse Brass at the Tokyo Olympics? (see above) Derwael would notably go on to become her nation’s first female medalist in the sport when she captured gold on uneven bars after her chance encounter with the Serb.

Attempting to describe his 60 Minutes recreation wouldn’t do the clip justice. Perhaps Grigor Dimitrov, Gael Monfils or Matteo Arnaldi can help on that front by joining in Djokovic's challenge.

Your serve, tennis fam!
