Video: New ad features Djokovic playing tennis on wings of plane

Busted Racquet

In a new advertisement for Head Tennis, Novak Djokovic volleys with a partner on the wings of a biplane. CGI trickery or a daredevil, World War I-style stunt?

Do you even have to ask? It's doubtful that Djokovic would even get in one of those planes, let alone stand on a wing as it flies in the air. The special effects are solid but we doubt that the ball would stay aloft long enough for a rally, Newton's third law or not.

The ad featuring the world No. 2 has been seen by over 200,000 people on YouTube since its release.

Playing tennis on the wings of a flying airplane has been done before, most famously in the 1925 picture below. The accompanying caption identified the players as Ivan Unger and Gladys Roy. I'm guessing that Kimiko Date-Krumm was the pilot.

Djokovic is 24-0 in 2011 and has won his last 26 matches. Sounds like Novak is  *puts on sunglasses* flying high. YEAAAAH!
