You may be one of the best tennis players of your generation, but that does not save you from being chastised by your wife when you forget your manners, as Novak Djokovic found out recently.

The World No 2’s wife Jelena was filming him during a training session for a Facebook Live broadcast, as he prepared for the upcoming Acapulco tournament in Mexico starting next week. At the end of the video, the Serbian can be seen taking the phone from Jelena, saying: “I like to get near the camera, it makes me feel more intimate I guess, more friendly.”

“Thank you for watching, I hope you enjoyed the ...” he says before an irked Jelena snatches the phone back.

"Where are your manners?" she can be seen snapping at him. "For heaven's sake. Thank you, love. Thank you. Isn't that what you should be saying?"

Jelena can then be seen grimacing as she realises that she was still broadcasting live to her husband’s seven million Facebook fans.

Djokovic is set to make his comeback from a shoulder injury after accepting a wildcard to play in the Mexican Open, where he will be joined by players like Milos Raonic, Rafael Nadal, Marin Cilic, Dominic Thiem and David Goffin. The only tournament that the Serbian has participated in Latin America was the 2016 Rio Olympics.

"Great news! You'll see me back on court next week in Acapulco at @AbiertoTelcel Did you miss me?" he tweeted on Friday announcing his decision.

The Serbian has played only eight matches this season, suffering a stunning defeat to Denis Istomin in the second round of the Australian Open.
