Novak Djokovic is stepping up his practice schedule ahead of his return to action at the Paris Masters next week and he caught the eye of his chief rival in a practice session in Nice.

Djokovic has not played since his US Open final defeat against Daniil Medvedev and he was reunited with his Russian friend and rival as they had a high-quality practice session at the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy in Nice.

The world No.1 looked in good shape as he competed with Medvedev and a video clip has emerged of the Serb reaching a short ball at the net that caught his opponent by surprise.

Now the tennis world waits to see what kind of form Djokovic will show in Paris, as he prepares to play at the ATP Finals in Turin later in November.
