Novak Djokovic: “My son as a tennis player? No pressure on him”

In a press conference at the ATP Paris Bercy Masters 1000, Novak Djokovic underlined the enormous importance of his family at this stage of his career, also focusing on a question relating to a possible career of his son.

Djokovic said: “My family is my biggest source of motivation. I am delighted when my son Stefan watches me play in a tournament or asks me to make two exchanges. It is a very special feeling. I am very interested in what he says he. However, I don’t put pressure on him.

It is important to me that he sees tennis as fun, a sport that can help him grow physically and mentally. It’s still too early to talk about his career or something. Don’t ask me about this, he’s only 8 years old. He is definitely too early.”

Nole’s lawyers are in contact with the Australian authorities ahead of the next edition of the Australian Open. The well-known journalist Jon Wertheim expressed his opinion on this: “It is advisable to do everything possible to avoid a repetition of what happened at the beginning of the year. I hope that Djokovic will receive an answer in the coming weeks and that he this story.”

Djokovic in Paris-Bercy

Novak Djokovic is on the hunt for his fifth title of the season, which could arrive this week in Paris-Bercy. The former world number 1 ruled the fearsome Maxime Cressy on his debut, making a difference in the decisive moments of the match, subsequently hitting the semifinals after the dominant victory against Lorenzo Musetti in the quarter-finals.

The Serbian champion wants to end a fairly troubled year with a flourish, especially thanks to his choice not to get vaccinated against the Coronavirus. Novak was forced to miss two Grand Slams, the Australian Open and the US Open, as well as suffering serious damage to his image.

As if that weren’t enough, the 35-year-old from Belgrade also had to give up all the American Masters 1000 (Indian Wells, Miami, Montreal and Cincinnati). Nole lifted her 2022 by triumphing at Wimbledon for the seventh time in her career, the fourth in a row. In addition to having equaled his idol Pete Sampras, Djokovic has moved within one length of Rafael Nadal in the all-time rankings of the Majors.
