As reported by Sky Sports, Djokovic made a unique entrance to the first tee, initially appearing with a tennis racket before making a switch to a golf driver.

The world's top-ranked tennis player pulled off a remarkable shot during the day that was in contention for the title of the best shot, driving the green from an advanced tee at the par-four 16th hole.

Djokovic's sensational achievement prompted playful banter and laughter before he punctuated the moment with the iconic 'Siuu' celebration as his ball came to rest on the green.

Here is the video:

Ronaldo explains the meaning behind 'Siuu'

'Siuu' is a Portuguese term that translates to 'yes.' According to GOAL, Ronaldo first exclaimed it during the 2014 Ballon d'Or Gala when he edged out Messi to claim the award.

A year prior to that, he had casually incorporated the celebration into a pre-season match against Chelsea.

Subsequently, he transformed it into his signature goal celebration, characterized by a mid-air 'dance' followed by the exclamation 'Siuu' upon landing.

Nevertheless, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner now acknowledges that the celebration has garnered far more fame and recognition than he initially anticipated.

Meanwhile, football's allure resides in its varied celebrations, ranging from dance routines and acrobatic displays to comical antics on the pitch. These celebrations collectively enhance its status as the world's most cherished sport.

Within the realm of iconic and personalized celebrations, Cristiano Ronaldo's renowned 'Siuu' stands out prominently, Sports Brief reported.

The contagious appeal of this celebration has enraptured fans across the globe, inspiring both spectators and fellow players to emulate it whenever they find the back of the net.
