Comedian Josh Berry made some hilarious appearances on the Big Four in a recent video, showing off his ability to capture the essence of Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Andy Murray, while mocking their personalities and qualities. Taken to the extreme.
The British comedian was recently in attendance at the Davis Cup Finals group stage in Manchester, where he was asked to do impressions of four tennis stars.
He started out with an impersonation of 20-time Grand Slam champion Federer, capitalizing on his huge fan base and the fact that the retired Swiss player is generally considered affable and likable. The show-off Federer was responding to the man he considered the greatest player of all time.
“Look, I have to say it’s definitely me. You know, there are a lot of great people who have played tennis. You know, Novak and Rafa and all the rest, but everyone likes me more than them. And I look better than them on the court. And, you know, I think they would agree with that. Everybody says that. So I would like to say very politely that it’s me,” he said.
Among his impressions of other players, Berry drew attention to Djokovic’s record 24 Grand Slam titles, the latest of which he achieved at the US Open earlier this month, and the longevity of the Serb’s career. When asked how long he would continue to compete, the fake Djokovic said that he would continue to compete forever and become the greatest player in the universe.
“Well, my friend, I think I’m slowing down, that will never happen. But no, seriously. I will never retire. I will continue to play tennis. The vegan diet means I have 14 years Internal organs are – old old, so I’ll keep it there.
“And even when Earth is so terrible because of climate change, I will make sure we go to other planets and I will win tennis there and in the universe… and I will be the best player in the entire galaxy,” he said.
Berry also mocked Murray’s seemingly calm personality off the court by pretending to be excited while keeping his voice low and sad. The fake version of Andy was asked how he felt about representing his country.
“I mean, obviously, I find it incredibly exciting to do this. It’s really an amazing thing to play for Great Britain. I mean, honestly, right now, I’m so excited that I don’t know if I’m going to sleep for about three weeks (…) so I just came back to reality,” he said.
