Djoker is just one of the names for tennis star and comedian Novak Djokovic. The spontaneous player has been known for his sense of humor both on and off court, and there are countless videos strewn across to attest the fact. But what Novak Djokovic did during a routine round of practice on the courts of the U.S. Open speaks volumes about the generosity of the 25-year old, five-time grand slam winner.
A routine practice session was interrupted unexpectyedly when a young fan shouted from the stands, "Djokovic, will you marry me?" The crowd erupted in laughter while Djokovic looked around and spotted the boy. But that’s not all that he did.

Djokovic went up to the boy and asked him to come down from the stands, handed him his racquet and asked him to take a few serves.
After the boy was done taking a few serves, Djokovic gave him a high-five and a hug, drawing some audible awws from the crowd.

This is the kind of behavior that makes Novak a much loved player both on and off the court. Some people are claiming it was a publicity stunt, but to us it looks like it was a spontaneous act of a man who has been very generous with his emotions and is loved by all.
