Serbian youngster Mihailo Topic recently won the Serbian under 12 national title and got a chance to meet the World No. 1 when Djokovic was in Serbia this week. After winning his record eighth Australian Open title in Melbourne, Djokovic is taking a break and is back home in Serbia with his family.
On Monday, the 10 year old Topic, whose expenses are covered by Djokovic, tweeted about meeting Djokovic and his coach, the former Wimbledon champion Goran Ivanisevic, who is also in Serbia with Djokovic. Topic has been in the spotlight for a while now for his precocious talent as a youngster which has caught the attention of the tennis officials in Serbia as well as by the Djokovic camp.
The World No. 1 was so impressed by the youngster that they have a formal sponsorship agreement, whereby Djokovic would cover all the expenses for Mihailo, including paying coach, booking courts and tennis equipment. Topic is surely grateful for all the help he has received from the Serbian legend and expressed that in hi tweet.
Meanwhile, Djokovic himself is expected to be back on court in Dubai next week for the ATP Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.
