Novak Djokovic crashed Grigor Dimitrov’s press conference following their second-round victories Sunday night at the BNP Paribas Open, and quizzed the young Bulgarian on his favourite Sugarpova flavour.

Djokovic had just finished his round of post-match press and was exiting through the main interview room, when he stopped to join Dimitrov at the dais.

“Let's talk,” he said, in front of the room full of journalists. “My friend Grigor here, best looking guy on the tour. You don't need to talk about tennis too much. You had so much success this year, let's talk about your looks.”

“What do you want to know?” said Dimitrov, with a laugh.

“Can I ask you a question? What is your favorite Sugarpova candy?”

“Flirty Sour,” said Dimitrov, of his girlfriend Maria Sharapova’s candy line.

Dimitrov had nothing but praise for Djokovic, when asked what he thought of him as a person and player.

“First of all, he's a great guy off the court,” he said. “We have a great relationship. We can speak a little bit of the same language.

“Obviously we had a lot of battles so far, and hopefully there are many more that we want to come. But he's just a tremendous competitor, we all know, and he has proven so much. I mean, Slams and all that, there is not much else you can say about a great player like him.”
