The world's best tennis players seem to let loose a bit more in Indian Wells than the other Master's 1000 events.

Take Sunday night in the press room when Novak Djokovic crashed Grigor Dimitrov's press conference.

The World No. 2 player quizzed the 22-year-old Bulgarian about his favorite Sugarpova candy flavor, named after his girlfriend Maria Sharapova.

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: OK, let's talk. 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. 

GRIGOR DIMITROV: What do you want to know?

DJOKOVIC: I'll let you be, i'll let you be. Take care. I was just listening to your interview.

DIMITROV: You can listen from there. 

DJOKOVIC: Can I ask you a question? What is your favorite Sugarpova candy?

DIMITROV: Flirty Sour.
