Novak Djokovic is back to Monte Carlo, where he has been living for some years now, after spending two-three weeks in the United States and ten days in Belgrade where he is back to practice with his fellow compatriot Filip Krajinovic. The 12-time Grand Slam winner attended the football match between Monaco and Paris Saint Germain on Sunday night, which featured the Neymar's team winning 2-1. After the match Djokovic met the former Italian football star Marco Materazzi, the 2006 World Cup winner. 'I am happy to see you again', Materazzi wrote posting a photo.
Djokovic, who has not been competing since Wimbledon due to an elbow injury, will keep training at the Country Club on outdoor hard-courts, and next to him there may be the former World No. 8 Radek Stepanek, who is meanwhile enjoying holidays with former wife Nicole Vaidisova. Djokovic will play the first event in Doha which starts on January 1.
