Novak Djokovic is in South Florida for the Miami Open and while he is there he decided to use his tennis superstar powers to help a fan get a date.

During a practice session, the world No. 1 was asked for help with a promposal, by a fan wearing a Roger Federer hat no less, and joined the high schooler as he asked a fellow young person to go to prom with him.


Djokovic is heading into Miami off of a win, and some controversial comments, at the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells last week.
