The photo shared by Alexis Ohanian, husband of the tennis legend Serena Williams, quickly went viral on X. the reason? Simple: with him in the shot is Novak Djokovic! The Serbian champion, on the eve of the BNP Paribas Open, attended a technology conference where he met the co-founder of Reddit.

"DjokerNole here at the tech/VC conferences. we gotta cook!" Ohanian posted on X.

The Serbian champion also had the opportunity to delight the UCLA students (here you can read our article about it), taking part in a special training session with them, as demonstrated by the many photos and videos shared on social media. Now Nole will focus on the first ATP Masters 1000 of the season, which will start in a few hours on the Californian hard-courts of Indian Wells.

"Greetings to all tennis fans from the BNP Paribas Open, Indian Wells, California. It's 2024 and the last time I played this tournament was in 2019. Five long years have passed, too long without being part of the Tennis Paradise tournament. One of the best tournaments in the world without a doubt, probably the favorite ATP Masters 1000 of many players, including myself.

I can't wait to come back and play in front of some of the best fans we have on Tour again. I think back to 2008, the first time I won the title at Indian Wells - one of the biggest successes of my career at that time.

I remember playing against Fish in the final. I was lucky to have won the tournament four more times playing some epic matches in the final against Federer and Nadal. I'm really looking forward to coming back," said Nole on the BNP Paribas Open media day.
