Basketball star Nate Wolters reveals he is a big fan of Novak Djokovic and he hopes the Serbian tennis superstar will come to some of his games this season. Wolters plays for Crvena Zvezda, a Belgrade based team.. Djokovic follows Crvena Zvezda and he occasionally comes to Crvena Zvezda's games.
"I know he comes to some games. I know he follows the team, which is pretty cool. He's probably the greatest tennis player of all time," Wolters told the Euroleague website. "Hopefully, he can come to some games this year and obviously, I'm a big fan of his and I watch tennis quite a bit, especially the majors.
He's a fun guy to watch." Wolters admitted that he is not very good at tennis and that he would not like to face Djokovic. "I'm really not that good at all. I haven't played tennis for a while either. So yeah, I don't want to face him at all," Wolters laughed.
Wolters would absolutely love to meet Djokovic
Wolters believes that 20-time Grand Slam champion Djokovic is a guy that everyone should look up to. "That'd be great," Wolters said. "He's a great athlete and a guy that everyone should look up to, and he takes care of his body, and works extremely hard, and is obviously super talented.
So yeah, he would be a fun guy to meet." Wolters used to play both basketball and tennis but in his mind there was never a doubt that he would pick basketball. "I was always a lot better at basketball than tennis, so it was kind of just something to do on the side, and something you can do the rest of your life", he said.
"So I don't play a lot of tennis now just because I'm focused on basketball, but I think when I'm retired from basketball, I will play a lot of tennis."
