Reigning world number one Novak Djokovic and third ranked Andy Murray have shot a funny commercial for one of the biggest brands of tennis equipment HEAD Tennis in Indian Wells on Thursday.
The six-time Grand Slam winner Djokovic posted a number of still shots of the ad making on his facebook page. The Serbian wrote, “Had a lot of fun shooting a funny new commercial with Andy for HEAD Tennis today. Watch out for the new spot… it’s coming out in May!”
HEAD Tennis is doing some heavy marketing for the last couple of years as players suing their equipment are doing a very good job in recent past.
Djokovic and Murray have almost taken over from Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, being regarded as the top two players in the years to come.
Djokovic has already proved that he is one of the legends by winning six Grand Slams including three straight Australian Open titles. The Serbian won all of his six matches against Rafael Nadal in 2011, with all of them being title matches.
On the other hand, Murray stunned Federer to capture Gold Medal at the London Olympics last year and then toppled Djokovic to garb his maiden Grand Slam title at the US Open. The Brit is closing on to the number two spot in the rankings and time is not far when he will overtake Federer.
Djokovic and Murray and seeded one and three respectively at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells. The Serbian juggernaut will play either Fabio Fognini of Italy or Slovenia’s Aljaz Bedene in the second round. While, Murray will meet Russian player Evgeny Donskoy or Tatsuma Ito of Japan for a place in the third round.
How to play from the baseline
The expression “to endure the rally” is about those indeterminate moments of a rally where none of the players is leading.
The ability to endure the rally is fundamental when you play a “long rally”, because it offers you the chance to measure your opponent’s strong points and vulnerabilities, besides letting you position as best as possible for your next offensive shot.
