Novak Djokovic: ‘The plan is for the documentary to see the light of day near…’

Novak Djokovic has the opportunity to write a beautiful page in tennis history in case of triumph at the US Open 2021. The world number 1 won the first three Grand Slams of the season, beating as many Next Gen exponents in the final. Having won eight of the last twelve Majors played, the Serbian champion managed to close the gap that separated him from Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in a very short period of time. If he were to lift his fourth title in New York, Nole would also become the second player in the Open Era to complete the ‘Calendar Grand Slam’ (the first was Rod Laver back in 1969). Tonight the 34-year-old from Belgrade will face Matteo Berrettini for a place in the semifinals. Not long ago, the 20-time Grand Slam champion revealed that he and his team were shooting a documentary that would trace his turbulent journey over the past two years. Responding to a question from journalist Sasa Ozmo, Djokovic explained that the documentary is about to be completed and will be released by the beginning of 2022.

“There have been some changes in the meantime, since we wanted to shoot some more material,” Novak Djokovic said. “At the moment, the plan is for the documentary to see the light of day near the end of this year, or in the first two months of 2022. We are recording stuff here in New York as well,” he added. “Then we need to edit it, to make it whole and to decide whether it is going to be a film or a docuseries. We are going to make that decision as a team.” Novak Djokovic also revealed that the documentary would chronicle his personal life and give out some “intimate” details, bringing him closer to his fans. “It is about my career and my life, some of my intimate and private things,” the 34-year-old said. “All of the people that are closest to me have given interviews speaking about me. I feel that it is going to be very interesting and I hope that the people will like it. Also, for those who do not know me, it will be a chance to get to know me better off the court.” The star of the show, Novak Djokovic, is enjoying his time in New York, both on and off the courts. Notably, the Serb gears up for an enticing quarter-final clash against fellow Wimbledon finalist, Matteo Berrettini. However, before setting out once again on his quest for greatness, he takes some time off to a little basketball banter. Thanks to his most recent success, he’s earned himself some NBA fans.
