A classy gesture by Djokovic, who is preparing for a huge match against Nadal on Friday for their 58th career head-to-head match.
That will be a terrific match to watch as Nadal looks to continue his successful career in tennis.
Nonetheless, Jokic’s award is well-deserved after the Serbian big man posting career-highs across the board and has led the Nuggets to a 3-seed in the Western Conference and a first-round victory over Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers.
The Nuggets have suddenly gone down 0-2 to the Phoenix Suns in the second round and are doing their best to come back in the series before their season ends.
The French Open has been in the news a lot lately, but the match between Nadal and Djokovic will be a fantastic one to watch when it takes place. Perhaps Djokovic has another gesture up his sleeve in commemoration of Jokic’s victory.
