Novak Djokovic revealed his seven-year-old son Stefan was absent from his player box during the Wimbledon final because he was busy playing tennis with Bob Bryan's son Bobby. On Sunday, Djokovic recovered from a set down to beat Nick Kyrgios in the Wimbledon final 4-6 6-3 6-4 7-6 (3).
After the match, reporters were curious to know why his son wasn't in his player box. "I love the fact that he chose to play tennis instead of watching me win," Djokovic said, per Sportskeeda. "Of course, I always love to have him here, have experienced that a few times last year.
I just love that he doesn't mind not having attention, or he doesn't mind the attention as well. He is fully present and immersed in playing tennis with his friend Bobby Bryan, the son of Bob Bryan."
Djokovic's son 'fully immersed into tennis'
During Wimbledon, Djokovic revealed that his seven-year-old is "fully immersed into tennis." After the Wimbledon final, Djokovic said he was happy to see his son playing tennis with Bryan's son and revealed his son is constantly asking him tennis questions.
"It's so fun to see them (Stefan and Bobby), follow them these days, watch them play," Djokovic added. "He's almost 8 years old. So yes, he can understand and appreciate a bit more everything that is happening. He is fully focused on his own tennis - He is asking questions every time every day - strings, head size, grip..why is this, why is that.
He has got millions of questions. He's so curious. It's lovely. It makes my heart full." In May, the Djokovic family celebrated a double-victory. Djokovic defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas to win the Rome Masters, while on the same day his son captured his first title.
Judging by Djokovic's recent comments, his son has quickly fallen in love with tennis and he is determined to become a pro one day.
