Watch Novak Djokovic become best friends with a French Open ball boy

YouTube

They don't call him the "Joker" for nothing. When rain halted play of Novak Djokovic's first-round French Open match yesterday, the affable tennis player befriended a ball boy to kill some time.

Noticing that the ball boy was also getting wet, Djokovic invited him to sit down next to him and held the umbrella himself. The nervous-looking ball boy was surprised when Djokovic let him hold his racket, but they appeared to hit it off quickly.
