Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray selfie fail

Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic visited New York City Monday night for the BNP Paribas Showdown at Madison Square Garden.

The two took part in the annual one-night tennis exhibition that kicks off the North American tennis season and allows fans to see the lighter side of pro tennis players.

During the match, in which Djokovic beat Murray 6-3, 7-6 (7-2), the pair stopped to pose for a few selfies – because why not embrace the 2013 word of the year?

Although it looks like they’ll need more practice if they want to reach the level of Ellen DeGeneres’ Twitter-crashing Oscars selfie.

Also participating in the event was College Park-native Francis Tiafoe, who got to hit with John McEnroe and met Murray and Djokovic backstage.

Sadly, the photos are in non-selfie format.
