Second-ranked tennis athlete in the world Novak Djokovic played a little harmless fun to fellow athlete Grigor Dimitrov when he barged into the Bulgarian's post-match interview at the BNP Paribas Open. Dimitrov was completely unaware that Djokovic would interrupt his interview and pull off some jokes and ask him silly questions that he was willing to answer anyway.

According to Tennis.si.com, Dimitrov was only a couple of questions into the press conference, when Djokovic, who was doing a TV interview in the neighboring room, came. The Serbian athlete even pulled a chair to sit behind Dimitrov and said that the 22-year-old Bulgarian should stop talking about tennis and just start talking about his good looks.
Djokovic even asked Dimitrov what his favourite "Sugarpova" flavour is, to which the Bulgarian responded, "Flirty Sour." The rising tennis star didn't mind Djokovic's little prank and was more than willing to play along with it. Djokovic left as quickly as he came and let the Bulgarian continue his interview.
"First of all, he's a great guy off the court, we have a great relationship, and we speak a little bit of the same language," Dimitrov said of Djokovic.

Both Djokovic and Dimitrov are participants in the 2014 BNP Paribas Open. Dimitrov has currently 1 win and 1 loss. He beat Robin Haase in the second round on March 9 but lost to Ernests Gulbis in the third round on March 11.
Djokovic, on the other hand, has advanced to the quarterfinals after beating Victor Hanescu and Alejandro Gonzalez. Djokovic is scheduled to face Marin Cilic on March 12. He had won the title twice, in 2008 and 2011.
With the defending BNP Paribas Open champion Rafael Nadal out in the running after losing to Alexander Dolgopolov on March 11, it's anybody's game now.
