More video out of the Serbia tie against the Croatians. Earlier this week during team practice, World No. 1 Novak Djokovic took a few cuts at the ball with his tennis racquet, baseball style – using the handle to try to hit the ball.

Unfortunately, Djokovic could barely make contact with the ball. Looks like baseball won’t be in his future. Good thing he has tennis!

He’d still win his tie v Croatia holding the racquet like that!

Djoker does practice with the idea you work hard, but have a good time with the people you are practicing with, have fun.
That is not a bad swing. He probably has the hand-eye coordination to connect, solidly, once he timed it right, if he had a mind to do so. Andre went and practiced a few days with a pro or minor league team as part of Reye’s cross training ideas. He did batting practice, missing badly. His afternoon session went better. 2 days later, he was smoking the ball.

Swing doesn’t look bad at all. Those off speed pitches are tough.


jane Says:

he’s more of a skier and footie player methinks.


Hippy Chick Says:

My son played baseball and I know one pleasure that wasn’t allowed in the summer and that was swimming. Said it got their timing off…..I realize this comment was sort of off the subject. But curious about tennis and swimming….does anyone know?
