World number one Novak Djokovic never disappoints when it comes to his relationship with fans. Both on and off the court, the Serbian champion tries to support and motivate his fans in every possible way. A few days ago Djokovic once again did something exceptional that is getting a lot of attention in the tennis world.
17-time Grand Slam tournament champion recently shared a video to encourage his young fans. The episode is about two boys, Petar and Nikola, who live in Macedonia and are affected by autism. It is actually a disorder in which an individual is unable to communicate and interact properly.
Their father, Zoran Mijalkov, takes care of them but hardly ever sees them happy. However, one night, his son Petar stayed up all night just to watch the Belgrade tennis player's match. "He always stayed in front of the screen.
He watched the game until the end. And since then - not a single Djokovic performance has been missed," explained the father.
Later, the youngest son also approached tennis and started following Novak Djokovic. The father struggled to find a Djokovic poster to place in their room but couldn't find one.
But Djokovic, when he learned about these fans of his, he learned about the family and made a video to make them happy.
Novak Djokovic's video message
Despite being in Belgrade, he hoped to meet the two boys personally soon.
"Hi, Petre. Peco, how are you? I send you a big hug and a big hug from Belgrade, hoping to see you live soon. I love you so much and hug you. Be careful!" Said a cheerful Djokovic in the video. It was really a wonderful surprise for the family.
The boys and their father were over the moon after receiving the video. Djokovic not only wanted to meet them soon, he also addressed them by their names, which was a really nice gesture. In response, the father also gave Djokovic an encouraging message.
"It takes little to be happy. A huge thank you to Nole who is not only the best tennis player but above all a man with a huge soul and heart. Thank you from the bottom of heart and soul for helping my son Petar have happy moments and smiles like watching you play.
The power of love!" Concluded the father. Nova Djokovic will play this week the ATP Finals at the O2 Arena, in London. The Serb is in the Group Tokyo 1970 with Alexander Zverev, Diego Schwartzman and Daniil Medvedev, while Dominic Thiem, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev are with Rafa Nadal in the Group London 2020.
