Great gesture by Novak Djokovic. The 12-time Grand Slam champion is planning to open a new restaurant in Serbia to help 'those in need', according to The Mirror.
The former world no. 1 has owned a restaurant called 'Novak' in Belgrade since 2009, and in 2016 opened his second restaurant 'Eqvita' in Monte Carlo. Food is a passion and tradition in Djokovic's family, as when Novak was growing up, his parents had a restaurant in Serbia.
Announcing the news about the new restaurant that will give away food for free, Djokovic said: 'Money is not problem for me. I have earned enough to feed all Serbia, I think that they deserve this after all the support they are giving to me.' Speaking about how for him food is important, last year Djokovic said: 'Because of my family, I’ve always had a love for food.
But as an athlete, it became something more — the fuel that determines how I play, how I recover and how alert I am on the court. I attribute a great deal of my professional success to my diet. Food is my passion. Of all the things I’ve experienced in life, food has changed me the most.
I wanted to share that impact with the world.' Meanwhile, Djokovic shared two pics of his training session done on Monday: 'I cannot resist going back to tennis courts, one way or another. still without a racket, but fully present with my body and mind.'
