Novak Djokovic impersonates a medic at Australian Open legends doubles match

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlMHy9mS9XA

Novak Djokovic only spent 1 hour, 29 minutes on court in his 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 destruction of David Ferrer to advance to his third straight Australian Open final. He'll now have two days rest while his potential opponents, Andy Murray and Roger Federer, play their semifinal Friday. So with time to kill, Djokovic, the king of impressions, unveiled a new one he's been working on: medic. Or English flag. It could go either way.

Djokovic came out in front of the sparse crowd that stayed for the Legends doubles match, which featured Goran Ivanisevic, Pat Cash, Henri Leconte and Guy Forget, to administer a medical timeout for Leconte. It wasn't a wasted effort.

"The diagnosis we determined with my assistant is that he's definitely crazy," Djokovic joked in his post-match press conference. "He needs a long term treatment."

And as luck would have it, with all the talk of ill-timed medical timeouts and their chilling effect, play resumed with Ivanisevic double-faulting on the first point and eventually getting broken.

Crafty, Leconte. Very crafty.
