Viktor Troicki got worked pretty easily by Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon on Monday, but he did provide one extremely entertaining moment.

Troicki was down 1-0 in the third set and up 40-30 when a fan yelled some advice.

“Serve it to the backhand, Viktor,” the fan screamed.

Troicki was taken aback by the fan’s advice, stopped, and pretended to hand his racket to the fan as if to say “You think it’s that easy? Why don’t you try?”

But Troicki did listen to the fan and struck his first serve out wide to Djokovic’s backhand. Djokovic reached for a return, but his feeble attempt landed out to give Troicki the game.

Impressed with himself for winning the game by using the fan’s advice, Troicki stopped and gave a reverent look and thumbs up to the fan.

Troicki lost the fourth-round match to his countryman 3-6, 1-6, 3-6, but at least he gave us that moment. And at least it was much better than his last fan interaction.
