Novak Djokovic has found a creative way to pass his time at home during the ongoing lockdown times due to the coronavirus crisis.

Imagine two tennis players are locked in a house for at least two months before their next tournament, what would be the consequences? They set up a tennis court and battle against each other using fry pans instead of tennis rackets!

Djokovic and his brother Marko, who also plays pro tennis, played tennis using fry pans in the living room of their house and there were no surprises when World No. 1 emerged as the winner of their "Living Room Open".

The Serbian shared the video on his social media accounts that showed the brothers playing tennis with frying pans. They used a pair of chairs and a sofa cushion as a net. They played a good 20-shot rally before Djokovic produced his signature Grand Slam victory celebration – by lying down on the floor with arms wide open.

The pandemic virus, which surfaced in China last year, has halted all sports tournaments across the globe. The Rolland Garros organizers earlier announced the postponement of this year’s French Open from May to the end of September due to the virus. Tokyo Olympics have been pushed from 2020 to 2021 and that has opened a two-week window for tennis. However, it was not good enough for Wimbledon.

The grass-court Grand Slam, which was supposed to be played between June 29 and July 12, has been canceled, the All England Club announced Wednesday. Djokovic was the defending champion in men's singles, while Simona Halep was the reigning champion in women's singles.

In the wake of the deadly virus, Djokovic has promised to donate $1.09 million to help his native Serbia buy ventilators and other medical equipment.

The other two members of the tennis’ Big Three – Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer—have also done their bits. Nadal has called on Spanish athletes to help raise $12 million to help fight the virus as Spain is the second-most affected country in Europe after Italy. Meanwhile, Federer has donated $1.04 million to vulnerable families in Switzerland.
