According to Italian website Repubblica.it last Saturday, July 28, 2012, Maria Sharapova and Novak Djokovic were recently seen together in London; taking time-out from their professional careers and shooting a commercial for Head, a sponsor of both athletes.
Sharapova, who have just won her second-round match in the Olympic Games this Tuesday after beating Laura Robson of Britain 7-6 (5), 6-3, can be seen receiving instructions for her act, while Djokovic is trying to balance a can on his head, which was supposed to be the target of Maria by hitting it with a tennis ball.
Later, Djokovic, who beat American tennis player star Andy Roddick (6-2, 6-1) also this Tuesday in the second round of the Olympics at Wimbledon, was seen standing about 10 feet away from Sharapova, who prepares to aim for her tennis ball exhibition strike.
But when Maria launched the tennis ball with her racket, it hit right into Djokovic‘s crotch. It was not mentioned if this was unintentional on Sharapova‘s part, or just part of the script for the commercial shoot; but some observers noted that it could be just an accident, as Novak seemed to be really hurt.
Djokovic was seen on his knees and later dropped himself to the ground. Sharapova, although shocked with what has happened, was not able to control her laugh, and was seen making a hand signal. Most commentators said that she might be referring to the “two balls” of the Serbian tennis player.
