Video: John McEnroe Trolls Boris Becker Over Djokovic Wimbledon Exit

John McEnroe may have retired from elite tennis many years ago, but he proved his mischievous streak is still intact earlier today – when he trolled Boris Becker over Novak Djokovic’s Wimbledon exit.

Becker has been Djokovic’s coach ever since 2013, and the German has overseen and played a big part in some of the biggest wins of Djokovic’s career – including several Wimbledon titles.

But Becker looked absolutely furious as Djokovic went crashing out of this year’s competition at the third round stage, after failing to get to grips with big-serving American Sam Querrey.

It was Djokovic’s earliest exit from a Grand Slam since 2009, and will obviously still be fresh in Becker’s mind.

But McEnroe is coach of Canadian Milos Raonic – who essentially replaced Djokovic in today’s semi-final against Roger Federer.

The American couldn’t resist when he saw an opportunity to wind-up his old foe:

Cheeky devil.

Who do you think will come out on top in Sunday’s final? Is it Andy Murray’s to lose?
