WATCH: Djokovic imitates coach Ivanisevic during Roland Garros practice

Novak Djokovic made a name for himself early on in his career by imitating fellow players and his talent is still there, many years after that.

Novak Djokovic became popular among fans after showing off his imitation skills early on in his career. A video of him doing imitations of fellow players in the locker room went viral and for a while he used to imitate other players on the tennis court with Nadal, Sharapova and Roddick popular demands.

He stopped and hasn't done it for years but he showed off his talents recently during an exhibition for fans in Monte-Carlo where he imitated Medvedev. He has now done it again during his Roland Garros practice session where he imitated the signature serving motion of his coach Goran Ivasenisevic.

It's good to see Djokovic in high spirits before Roland Garros and with no brace on his elbow which was present for much of his clay season so far. He played down those injury concerns before the Italian Open but then he was spotted putting it on early on in his match leaving fans worried about the state of his elbow. He's had an elbow issue in the past and it bothered him quite a bit.

For now, it seems like Djokovic is not having any issues but it's a practice session, it's not as taxing as a real match so we'll see how it ends up. The draw landed Djokovic and Alcaraz in the same half so he will have a tricky road to a potential title. It begins against Aleksandar Kovacevic, a solid American player though not one who is known for his clay prowess.

In any case, Djokovic looked good in practice and fans are hoping that translates to the tennis court. You can check out him imitating Ivanisevic below.
