Ah, the life a newly crowned champion. Champagne, parades, a table at any restaurant and, apparently, you get to serve a tennis ball at late night talk show hosts.
Monday night on the “Late Show with Stephen Colbert”, US Open champ Novak Djokovic joined Colbert toward the end of his monologue and the host gave Djokovic the opportunity to pelt him with a serve. Colbert wasn’t about to go into this stunt unprotected though — he was armed with the Captain America shield because obviously.
Djokovic definitely took it easy on David Letterman’s successor, though he still managed to get an, albeit fake, reaction out of Colbert.
