Recently, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, and other characters from the ATP Tour’s funny reality program created their own genuine social media accounts.

Tennis players from the ATP Tour staged a comedic routine in their most recent film, “The Tour: A Reality Show,” which claimed that tennis is a scripted sport with predictable results. As the video opens, the writers and players are getting ready for season 52.

When Murray speaks first in the sketch, he begins by saying: “I think that’s what people don’t realize; it’s all just scripted, like the players and the matches; it’s all just kind of made up. It’s a bit like wrestling or reality TV shows; none of it’s real. We get our storylines at the start of the year and we try to make everything look natural. Let’s face it, people are stupid so they’ll buy anything.”

Some of the biggest names in tennis, including Djokovic, Murray, Andrey Rublev, and Carlos Alcaraz, are featured in the film. Some of these athletes’ ‘real names’ come to light as they appear on television.

Additionally, there is the fantastically named Bert Critchley, who makes an effort to understand his character, Novak Djokovic. He said: “Something that I’m trying to evoke with this Novak character is not just the performance and the achievements, but a bit more of an essence, a bit more personality; try to have people relate to him. I want to bring the truth to Novak. What is he thinking? What is he feeling? What would motivate him if he were a real person?”
