Second Serve

 



In a recent appearance on the Lewis Howes School of Greatness Podcast, Novak Djokovic joins to discuss many topics, including his philanthropic aspirations, his wife Jelena’s impact on his life, how he fell in love with tennis and his compassion for the human plight.

It’s a great interview and we highly recommend that you watch it in its entirety, but if you really want to get to the heart of Djokovic the man you can skip right to 27:25 to see Djokovic break down in tears when describing how the Syrian refugee influx has impacted him emotionally.


Djokovic explains a meeting he had, arranged by Unicef, where he met Syrian refugees that were staying temporarily in Serbia.

“Where are they going to go,” Djokovic asks. “What’s going to happen? Even today, it’s so emotiona, because I don’t know where they went. … They are travelling God knows where, by foot, no home, no nothing behind them and in front of them. … It’s one of those things that breaks your heart—that’s what war does.”

Djokovic also goes on to talk about what he is most proud of and the thing he loves about his wife the most.

In other news, Djokovic has been training regularly and plans to begin a full schedule in 2018, beginning with an Abu Dhabi exo and followed by a trip to Doha before the 2018 Australian Open. He is currently No.12 in the world and has not played since Wimbledon.
