Novak Djokovic pulled a 100 euro bill from his packet and gave it to a kid during a Euroleague game. On Wednesday, Djokovic was at Stark Arena in Belgrade, watching the Crvena Zvezda and Valencia game. During halftime, Djokovic was approached by kids and fans - he took a selfie with all of them.
But when one group of kids approached Djokovic, the Serb told them "well done" and put a 100 euro bill in a kid's pocket.
According to Serbian newspaper Kurir, that group of kids found Djokovic's payment card near the arena and asked the security staff if they could get to the Serbian tennis star and return his card.
Djokovic has gone to Monte Carlo
Last weekend, Djokovic kicked off his preparation for the clay season in Belgrade. On Thursday, Djokovic had a practice session with Filip Krajinovic. After concluding his practice, Djokovic went to Monte Carlo.
Viktor Troicki, who was also Djokovic's sparring partner in recent days, told Sport Klub that Djokovic is ready for Monte Carlo and determined to make a good result. "Nole is ready for Monte Carlo. He will try to get the trophy there.
His preparation has been going great. He is eager to play, eager for to play tournaments. I think he can go deep (in Monte Carlo)," Troicki told Sport Klub. Last year, Djokovic suffered a Monte Carlo second-round defeat to Alejandro Davidovich Fokina.
But Troicki feels this year will be different. "I think it is different compared to last year. This time he practiced more because he knew then that he would not be able to go to America. He is more ready now because he has played more.
He is in a competitive rhythm. He won Adelaide and Melbourne, the situations are different, he is more prepared and will start the clay season better than last year," Troicki explained.
