Tennis Sensation Novak Djokovic got in hot waters on Tuesday when he posted a video on his Instagram for playing tennis shots in court, that apparently seem to be breaking the lockdown rules.

Media reports said that Tennis Sensation Novak Djokovic has apparently broke confinement rules in Spain by going back to a tennis court and playing shots.

Djokovic posted a video on Instagram showing him exchanging shots with another man at a tennis club in the coastal city of Marbella, where the Serb has reportedly stayed.

Djokovic filmed the video while hitting shots and wrote he was so happy to play on clay .. well, just for a bit with my phone in the hands.

Spain on Monday loosened some of the lockdown measures that had been in place since mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic, allowing professional athletes to return to practice.

Earlier in February,  Serbian Tennis Icon Novak Djokovic captured a record-extending eighth Australian Open title playing against Austrian Dominic Thiem.

Serbian Tennis Icon star fought back to beat fifth-seeded Austrian Dominic Thiem 6-4, 4-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 over three hours and 59 minutes in Sunday’s final for his 17th Grand Slam championship crown.

Djokovic capitalised on early nerves to win the first set against Thiem, who had won four of their past five ATP Head2Head meetings, but at 4-4 in the second set, Djokovic  first warned by the chair umpire for a service time violation.

It shook the concentration of the Serbian. He received a shot clock time violation for a second time that resulted in him forfeiting a first serve. Djokovic struck an 85 miles per hour second serve, then mis-timed a forehand to give Thiem the break. The Austrian stretched the lead to 4-0 in the third set, with Djokovic needing treatment from a doctor and trainer to hydrate.

Thiem looked to have the measure of Djokovic, but at 3-4 in the fourth set, the momentum swung again. This time, Thiem struck an easy forehand drop volley into the net that would have given the Austrian a commanding 30/0 lead in the game.
