The prestigious Roland Garros 2015 that kicked-off on Sunday has already exhibited some kicking moment. On Wednesday, Israel’s Dudi Sela and Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga took the entertainment level on to the crest by playing football during their second-round match up.

Sela, who appeared feeble against Tsonga, took everyone by surprise when he kicked the tennis ball at Tsonga’s serve towards him. This didn’t stop here; Tsonga reacted with the same gesture by hitting ball with his foot again towards Sela.

This continued for a while and the players perfectly hit the ball with their foot towards the other side of the net. The spectators around cheered for players in excitement at the sudden transition of game.

Sela, who was fighting to sail into the third round for the first time in his career in Paris here, was outplayed by Tsonga, who managed to pull off a serene 6-4 6-1 6-1 triumph.
