Novak Djokovic joins Ben & Liam tennis match

With a swarm of International tennis royalty quarantining in Adelaide, everyone is doing their best to catch a look at the stars.

Off the back of a recent Nine News Adelaide story about a young boy (Christian, 15) who was lucky enough to get some tennis advice from World #1 Novak Djokovic, Nova 919’s Brekky boys Ben & Liam decided that this was their opportunity to also rub shoulders with the tennis superstar.

In an attempt to attract the attention of Novak, Ben & Liam hatched a plan to play a game of tennis, right outside his hotel.

After their show they donned their best tennis outfits and headed to Tynte Street, beginning to play a game of tennis. After a short period of time they were elated to be greeted by Novak Djokovic watching from his balcony.

The World #1 took amusement in the breakfast hosts’ questionable tennis skills before claiming “No no wait… Now it’s our turn” joining in on the game by sharing some volleys with his coach on the balcony.

In appreciation of Djokovic’s time Ben & Liam offered to change the name of the radio station to “NOVAK 919” for a day, with the offer greatly accepted.


Djokovic said: “Yes, I’m expecting to see the ‘K’ right there…!”


On the achievement Ben & Liam said: “Honestly this has been one of our favourite radio moments so far… No Djoke. Forget about Leyton Hewitt, our new favourite tennis player is Novak Djokovic (Unless Leyton plays some tennis with us anytime soon).”
