Djokovic Completes Murray’s 100-Volley Challenge
World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and former World No. 1 Andy Murray have played 36 times in their ATP Head2Head series (Djokovic leads 25-11). The two superstars have now competed against one another off the court, too.
On Thursday, Murray challenged his fellow players and fans to hit 100 volleys back and forth with a partner in the confines of their homes or backyards while staying home during the coronavirus pandemic.
A challenge to all tennis players and fans… The 💯 volley challenge. There was no bickering during the filming of the video 🙄, although I think the last volley was aimed at my head… I can’t be the only one that wants to see Rog and Mirka hitting a few balls together…🎾 pic.twitter.com/c0lMnNuSSQ

On Friday, Djokovic and his wife, Jelena Djokovic, answered the call.

They are not the only ones to complete the challenge, though. Murray’s older brother, former doubles World No. 1 Jamie Murray, couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
“We beat you at Monopoly, we’re never going to beat you at tennis,” Murray said.
