Novak Djokovic was recently interviewed by "La Gazzetta dello Sport" in Italy, regarding his future plans and how he will try to mange his life as a tennis champion and as a father. Jelena Ristic - Novak"s girlfriend - is pregnant with the couple"s first child. How are things going to change for the actual World No.2?

"What does a baby mean for a champion? Immense joy! It"s the beginning of a new chapter in my life and I am very happy about it" said a visibly excited Novak Djokovic. The Serb is also convinced that he will able to manage both sides of his life, even though priorities in his life may temporary or permanently change. "When the baby will arrive, Tennis will not be the first priority anymore" said Novak, who then added: "it will be tiring, but I am sure it will also give me extra energy and motivation to pursue my career". In fact, we can see how for other players before him, being a father meant everything but giving up on a tennis career. Roger Federer is a clear example.

Novak also talked about his passion for studying and learning: "The more a man studies, the more he adds a value to himself. I always want to learn something new. When I was a kid I took my responsibilities, growing up on a low economical budget, but setting clear goals for what I wanted to do as an adult. Not having had nothing for free makes me appreciate life even more".
