Early and personal life Djokovic was born on 22 May 1987 in Belgrade, SR Serbia, Yugoslavia, to parents Srđan and Dijana (née Žagar). He is of paternal Montenegrin and maternal Croatian descent.[a] His two younger brothers, Marko and Djordje, are also tennis players with professional aspirations.[18] A resident in Monte Carlo, Djokovic was coached by former Slovak tennis player Marián Vajda from 2006 until Boris Becker
Boris Becker
took over the role of head coach in December 2013.[19] Djokovic is a self-described fan of languages, speaking Serbian, English, French, German, and Italian.[20][21] He met his future wife, Jelena Ristić, in high school, and began dating her in 2005.[22] The two became engaged in September 2013,[23] and on 10 July 2014 the couple got married on Sveti Stefan
Sveti Stefan
in Montenegro,[24] while a church wedding was held in the same place, on 12 July 2014, in the Church of Saint Stephen
Saint Stephen
(Serbian: Црква Светог Архиђакона Стефана) which belongs to Praskvica Monastery.[25] On 24 April 2014, Djokovic announced that he and Ristić were expecting their first child.[26] Their son Stefan was born in October 2014.[27] In April 2017, it was confirmed that they were expecting their second child.[28] Their daughter Tara was born in September 2017.[29] Djokovic began playing tennis at the age of four.[30] In the summer of 1993, the six-year-old was spotted by Yugoslav tennis player Jelena Genčić[31] at Mount Kopaonik, where Djokovic's parents ran a fast-food parlour.[32] Upon seeing Djokovic play tennis, she stated: "This is the greatest talent I have seen since Monica Seles."[18] Genčić worked with young Djokovic over the following six years before realizing that, due to his rapid development, going abroad in search of increased level of competition was the best option for his future. To that end, she contacted Nikola Pilić
Nikola Pilić
and in September 1999 the 12-year-old moved to the Pilić tennis academy in Oberschleißheim, Germany, spending four years there.[33] At the age of 14, he began his international career, winning European championships in singles, doubles, and team competition.[18] Djokovic is known for his often humorous off-court impersonations of his fellow players, many of whom are his friends.[34] This became evident to the tennis world after his 2007 US Open quarterfinal win over Carlos Moyá, where he entertained the audience with impersonations of Rafael Nadal
Rafael Nadal
and Maria Sharapova. His impersonations have also become popular on YouTube.[34] Djokovic did an impression of John McEnroe
John McEnroe
after his fourth round match victory at the 2009 US Open, before playing a brief game with McEnroe, much to the delight of the audience.[35] Djokovic is a member of the "Champions for Peace" club, a group of famous elite athletes committed to serving peace in the world through sport, created by Peace and Sport, a Monaco-based international organization.[36] Djokovic is a member of the Serbian Orthodox Church. On 28 April 2011, Patriarch Irinej of Serbia
Serbia
awarded Djokovic the Order of St. Sava
Order of St. Sava
I class, the highest decoration of the Serbian Orthodox Church, for his contributions to monasteries of the Serbian Orthodox Church
Serbian Orthodox Church
in Kosovo and Metohija
Metohija
and charitable work in Serbia.[37] He is a keen fan of Serbian football club Red Star Belgrade,[38] Italian club A.C. Milan[39] and Portuguese club S.L. Benfica.[40] He is good friends with fellow Serbian tennis player Ana Ivanovic, whom he has known since the two were children growing up in Serbia, through Djokovic's uncle and Ivanovic's father.[41] Although not a Buddhist, Djokovic has also been reported to meditate for up to an hour a day at the Buddhapadipa Temple in Wimbledon and is close to monks in the complex. He has spoken of the positive power of meditation. [42][43][44] Tennis

Juniors As a member of the Yugoslav national team, Djokovic reached the final of the 2001 Junior Davis Cup
Davis Cup
for players under 14, in which he lost his match in singles.[45] In juniors, Djokovic compiled a singles win/loss record of 40–11 (and 23–6 in doubles), reaching a combined junior world ranking of No. 24 in February 2004.[46] At the junior Grand Slam tournaments his best showing was at the Australian Open where he reached the semi-finals in 2004. He did not play at Wimbledon but he did play at the Jr French Open
French Open
and Jr US Open. Start of professional career Djokovic turned professional in 2003.[47] At the beginning of his professional career, he mainly played in Futures and Challenger tournaments, winning three of each type from 2003 to 2005. His first tour-level tournament was Umag in 2004, where he lost to Filippo Volandri in the round of 32.[48] Djokovic made his first Grand Slam tournament appearance by qualifying for the 2005 Australian Open, where he was defeated by eventual champion Marat Safin
Marat Safin
in the first round in straight sets, after defeating future rival Stanislas Wawrinka
Stanislas Wawrinka
in qualifying.[49][50] However, he went on to reach the third round of both Wimbledon and the US Open, coming back from two sets down to defeat Guillermo García-López in the former, and beating Gaël Monfils
Gaël Monfils
and Mario Ančić in the latter. Djokovic participated in four Masters events and qualified for two of them, his best performance coming in Paris, where he reached the third round and defeated fourth seed Mariano Puerta along the way.[51] 2006: First ATP titles Djokovic became one of the 40 best players in the world singles rankings after making his first quarterfinal appearance at a Grand Slam event, coming at the French Open, and also by reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon that year.[52] Three weeks after Wimbledon, Djokovic won his first ATP title at the Dutch Open in Amersfoort
Amersfoort
without losing a set, defeating Nicolás Massú in the final. He won his second career title at the Moselle Open in Metz, and moved into the top 20 for the first time in his career.[53] Djokovic also reached his first career Masters quarterfinal at Madrid during the indoor hardcourt season.[54] On 9 April 2006, Djokovic clinched a decisive Davis Cup
Davis Cup
win against Great Britain by defeating Greg Rusedski
Greg Rusedski
in four sets in the fourth match of the tie, giving Serbia and Montenegro
Serbia and Montenegro
an insurmountable 3–1 lead in their best-of-five series, thus keeping the country in the Group One Euro/African Zone of Davis Cup. Afterwards, Djokovic briefly considered moving from Serbia
Serbia
to play for Great Britain.[55] Following this match-up, the British media spoke of Djokovic's camp negotiating with the Lawn Tennis
Tennis
Association about changing his international loyalty by joining British tennis ranks.[55] The nineteen-year-old Djokovic, who was ranked sixty-third in the world at the time, mostly dismissed the story at first by saying that the talks were not serious, describing them as "the British being very kind to us after the Davis Cup."[56] However, more than three years later, in October 2009, Djokovic confirmed that the talks between his family and the LTA throughout April and May 2006 were indeed serious:

Britain was offering me a lot of opportunities and they needed someone because Andy [Murray] was the only one, and still is. That had to be a disappointment for all the money they invest. But I didn't need the money as much as I had done. I had begun to make some for myself, enough to afford to travel with a coach, and I said, 'Why the heck?' I am Serbian, I am proud of being a Serbian, I didn't want to spoil that just because another country had better conditions. If I had played for Great Britain, of course I would have played exactly as I do for my country but deep inside, I would never have felt that I belonged. I was the one who took the decision.[57]

2007: Reaching the top ten and first major final Djokovic began 2007 by defeating Australian Chris Guccione in the final of the tournament in Adelaide, before losing in the fourth round of the Australian Open
Australian Open
to eventual champion Roger Federer[58] in straight sets. His performances at the Masters Series events in Indian Wells, and Key Biscayne, where he was the runner-up and champion respectively, pushed him into the world's top 10.[53] Djokovic lost the Indian Wells final to Rafael Nadal, but defeated Nadal in Key Biscayne in the quarterfinals before defeating Guillermo Cañas
Guillermo Cañas
for the title in the finals.[59] After winning his first Master Series title, Djokovic returned to Serbia
Serbia
to help his country enter the Davis Cup

Björn Borg
stated that Djokovic "is definitely a contender to win a Grand Slam (tournament)."[66] The following week at the Cincinnati Masters, Djokovic lost in the second round to Moyà in straight sets.

title. This win completed Djokovic's Career Grand Slam and denied Murray his first French Open

title.[237] Djokovic vs. Wawrinka Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka
Stan Wawrinka
have met 24 times with Djokovic leading 19–5, however the two have contested numerous close matches, including four five-setters at Grand Slam level.[238] Wawrinka and Djokovic have played three consecutive Australian Open

crown.[239] Djokovic got revenge in the 2015 Australian Open, winning 6–0 in the fifth set, but again it went the distance.[240] At the 2015 French Open
French Open
final, Wawrinka defeated Djokovic in four sets to claim his second major title. In 2015, Djokovic defeated Wawrinka at the Paris Masters.[241] At the 2016 US Open, Wawrinka beat Djokovic in a Grand Slam final for the second time. Suffering from a foot injury for the latter stages of the match, Djokovic lost in four sets. He did not attribute his loss to the injury, but rather to Wawrinka's courageous play at decisive moments in the match.[242] Contrary to most high-profile rivalries, they have played doubles together.[243] Despite Djokovic's 19–5 overall record against Wawrinka, Wawrinka leads Djokovic 2–0 in Grand Slam finals and 3–2 in all ATP finals.[244] During Djokovic's run of eight appearances at Grand Slam finals from 2014 Wimbledon
2014 Wimbledon
through the 2016 US Open, his only two losses came at the hands of Wawrinka. Moreover, in Djokovic's 21 Grand Slam championship matches, Wawrinka is the only opponent he has not defeated and the only opponent outside the Big Four who has defeated him. Djokovic vs. Tsonga Djokovic and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
have met 22 times with Djokovic leading 16–6.[245][246] Their first meeting was in the final of the 2008 Australian Open; Djokovic and Tsonga had defeated the top two players, Roger Federer
Roger Federer
and Rafael Nadal
Rafael Nadal
in their respective semi-finals in straight sets.[247][248] Djokovic won this match in 4 sets to win his first Grand Slam singles title.[249] Their next meeting at a Grand Slam event was again at the Australian Open, in the 2010 quarterfinals, exactly two years to the day since Djokovic defeated Tsonga to win his first Grand Slam singles title. However, this time it was Tsonga who prevailed, winning in five sets after Djokovic fell ill during the match.[250] It wouldn't be until another year-and-a-half until they met again, with the stakes even higher – in the semi-finals at Wimbledon in 2011, with the winner advancing to his first Wimbledon final. It was their first meeting on grass, and Djokovic prevailed in four sets to advance to his first Wimbledon final,[251] and in the process ending the seven-and-a-half-year reign of Roger Federer
Roger Federer
and Rafael Nadal
Rafael Nadal
at the top of the rankings. At the 2012 French Open, Djokovic and Tsonga met again in an important quarterfinals match, with Djokovic prevailing in five sets after more than four hours of play.[252] They met again two months later at the Olympics, with Djokovic winning in straight sets in the quarterfinals.[253] They met in the final of the 2012 China Open, with Djokovic once again victorious in straight sets.[254] The pair were drawn in the same pool for the 2012 ATP World Tour Finals. Djokovic defeated Tsonga in his first (of three) round robin matches.[255] It was Djokovic's fifth win over Tsonga in 2012. Their most recent Grand Slam tournament meeting was in the quarter-finals of the 2016 US Open. Djokovic won after Tsonga retired while two sets to love down.[256] Place among the all-time greats

Djokovic became the eighth player in history to achieve the Career Grand Slam

Following his tremendous success in the 2011 season, Djokovic began to feature on all-time greatest lists. In late 2011, Rod Laver
Rod Laver
chose Djokovic as number six in his top ten male players of the Open Era. According to Tim Henman's June 2012 statement, Djokovic is "probably a top eight player in tennis history".[257] Andre Agassi
Andre Agassi
stated in September 2012 that Federer, Nadal and Djokovic "may very well be the greatest three players to ever play tennis".[258] In March 2012 John Murray saw him as 'one of the greatest players ever'.[259] In his September 2013 men's greatest players of all-time list, International Business Times' writer Jason Le Miere put the Serb in seventh place.[260] ESPN
ESPN
writer Howard Bryant called him 'arguably the best pure tennis player in the world'.[261] In April 2015, Henman offered another comment on Djokovic's standing among the all-time greats, saying "it's only a matter of time before he is considered alongside Federer and Nadal as one of the greatest players of all time".[262] Having proclaimed him "one of the all-time greats" in November 2014,[263] John McEnroe
John McEnroe
put Djokovic in all-time top five following his 2015 Wimbledon
2015 Wimbledon
win, Djokovic's ninth Grand Slam tournament title: "My top four are Laver, Sampras, Roger and Nadal but Novak is at number five and rising".[264][265] Andrew Castle
Andrew Castle
stated in January 2016 that Djokovic is "undoubtedly moving towards being considered the sport's all-time greatest player".[266] In June 2016, a panel of more than forty ESPN
ESPN
experts ranked Djokovic as number eight on their top twenty all-time combined list of both male and female tennis players; he was number five among the males, behind Federer, Laver, Sampras, and Borg.[267] Rod Laver
Rod Laver
said in 2016 that Djokovic was tied with Federer as the best player of all times.[268] In February 2018 Djokovic was placed as number 5 by Tennis.com in the list of 50 greatest players of the Open era.[269] Djokovic is widely considered to be one of the greatest returners in the history of the sport,[270] an accolade given to him even by Andre Agassi, who was considered to be the best returner ever. Though staying clear of best ever conversations,[271] tennis coach Nick Bollettieri has continually been praising Djokovic as the "most complete player ever"[272][273] and the "most perfect player of all time":[274]

When you look at match players in the history of tennis, I don't believe that anybody can equal everything on the court that Djokovic does. I don't think you can find a weakness in his game. His movement, personality, his return of serve, his serve, excellent touch, not hesitant in coming to the net, great serve. Over all, almost every player has a downfall; to me he doesn't have one. He's perhaps the best put-together player that I've seen over 60 years.[275]

Tennis
Tennis
pundits have classified many of Djokovic's matches as some of the greatest contests ever, with the 2012 Australian Open
Australian Open
final being considered one of the greatest matches ever seen.[276][277] Some longtime analysts claim that the Djokovic-Nadal rivalry ranks as the best rivalry in tennis history primarily because of the quality of matches they produce.[278] Playing style and equipment Djokovic is an all-court player with emphasis on aggressive baseline play.[279] His groundstrokes from both wings are consistent, deep, and penetrating. His backhand is widely regarded as one of the best in today's game. His best shot is his backhand down the line, with great pace and precision. He is also known as one of the greatest movers on the court with superior agility, court coverage and defensive ability, which allows him to hit winners from seemingly defensive positions. After great technical difficulties during the 2009 season (coinciding with his switch to the Head racket series), his serve is one of his major weapons again, winning him many free points; his first serve is typically hit flat, while he prefers to slice and kick his second serves wide.[279] Djokovic's return of serve is a powerful weapon for him, with which he can be both offensive and defensive. Djokovic is rarely aced because of his flexibility, length and balance. Djokovic is highly efficient off both the forehand and backhand return, often getting the return in play deep with pace, neutralizing the advantage the server usually has in a point. John McEnroe
John McEnroe
considers Djokovic to be the greatest returner of serve in the history of the men's game. Occasionally, Djokovic employs a well-disguised backhand underspin drop shot and sliced backhand. Djokovic commented on the modern style of play, including his own, in interview with Jim Courier
Jim Courier
after his semi-final win against Andy Murray in the 2012 Australian Open
Australian Open
tournament:[280]

I had a big privilege and honour to meet personally today Mr. Laver, and he is one of the biggest, and greatest players ever to play the game, thank you for staying this late, sir, thank you ... even though it would actually be better if we played a couple times serve and volley, but we don't know to play ... we are mostly around here [points to the area near the baseline], we are running, you know, around the baseline ...

Entering the pro circuit, Djokovic used the Head Liquidmetal Radical, but changed sponsors to Wilson in 2005. He couldn't find a Wilson racquet he liked, so Wilson agreed to make him a custom racquet to match his previous one with Head.[281] After the 2008 season, Djokovic re-signed with Head, and debuted a new paint job of the Head YouTek Speed Pro at the 2009 Australian Open. He then switched to the Head YouTek IG Speed (18x20) paint job in 2011, and in 2013, he again updated his paint job to the Head Graphene Speed Pro, which included an extensive promotional campaign.[282] Djokovic uses a hybrid of Head Natural Gut (gauge 16) in the mains and Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Rough (gauge 16L) in the crosses. He also uses Head Synthetic Leather Grip as a replacement grip.[283] In 2012, Djokovic appeared in a television commercial with Maria Sharapova
Maria Sharapova
promoting the use of Head rackets for many techniques such as golf and ten-pin bowling.[284] In assessing Djokovic's 2011 season, Jimmy Connors
Jimmy Connors
said that Djokovic gives his opponents problems by playing "a little bit old-school, taking the ball earlier, catching the ball on the rise, (and) driving the ball flat." Connors adds that a lot of the topspin that Djokovic's opponents drive at him comes right into his zone, thus his ability to turn defence into offence well.[285] Coaching and personal team In the period 2004 and 2005, Djokovic was coached by Dejan Petrovic.[286] From fall 2005 until June 2006, he was coached by Riccardo Piatti, who divided his time between the 18-year-old and Ivan Ljubičić. Player and coach reportedly parted ways over the latter's refusal to work full-time with Djokovic.[287] From June 2006 until May 2017, Djokovic was coached by Slovakian former professional tennis player Marián Vajda. They met for the first time during that year's French Open, after which Vajda was hired to be the 19-year-old's coach. On occasion Djokovic employed additional coaches on part-time basis: in 2007, during the spring hardcourt season, he worked with Australian doubles ace Mark Woodforde with specific emphasis on volleys and net play while from August 2009 until April 2010 American Todd Martin
Todd Martin
joined the coaching team, a period marked by his ill-fated attempt to change Djokovic's serve motion.[288] From early 2007 until 2017, Djokovic worked with physiotherapist Miljan Amanović, who was previously employed by Red Star Belgrade, and NBA player Vladimir Radmanović.[289] From the fall 2006, Djokovic had an Israeli fitness coach, Ronen Bega, but the two parted ways during spring 2009[290] since Djokovic decided to make a change after identifying his conditioning as a weakness in his game following continual losses to Nadal.[291] In April 2009, ahead of the Rome Masters, Djokovic hired Austrian Gebhard Phil-Gritsch (formerly worked with Thomas Muster) to join the team in fitness coach capacity.[292][293] In July 2010, before the Davis Cup
Davis Cup
clash away at Croatia, Djokovic made another addition to his team – nutritionist Igor Četojević who additionally focuses on Chinese medicine and does acupuncture.[294] He allegedly discovered that the tennis player suffers from gluten intolerance, using applied kinesiology,[295][296] and that he cannot eat gluten, purging it from his diet. It appeared to have worked as Djokovic began feeling stronger, quicker, and much more fit.[297] He eventually settled on a vegan diet. He later added the occasional consumption of fish to his dietary regimen. After Djokovic's Wimbledon win in July 2011, Četojević left the team.[298] A Wall Street Journal
Wall Street Journal
article noted, "He had an otherworldly season in 2011 and has been the world's most consistent player since. His devotion to his diet has only gotten stronger. (In 2016) he opened a vegan restaurant in Monte Carlo, where he lives."[299] After retiring from professional tennis in August 2011, Serbian player Dušan Vemić
Dušan Vemić
joined Djokovic's team as assistant coach and hitting partner for Novak. The collaboration ended before the 2013 US Open.[300] Six-time major champion and former world No. 1 Boris Becker, who had mostly worked as television pundit for BBC Sport
BBC Sport
and Sky Sports
Sky Sports
since retiring from playing in 1999, was announced as Djokovic's new head coach in December 2013.[301] According to Djokovic, the Becker appointment was done with input from the player's existing head coach Marián Vajda who reportedly wanted to spend more time with his family and was looking to have his coaching workload somewhat reduced.[302] For Becker, in addition to working alongside Vajda, the job entailed special emphasis on Grand Slam tournaments as Djokovic felt he missed out on winning a couple of majors over the previous two seasons due to a lack of mental edge in the final stages of those tournaments.[303] Becker's first tournament coaching Djokovic was the 2014 Australian Open. On 5 May 2017, Djokovic confirmed that he had come to a mutual agreement to terminate his coaching relationship with Vajda, as well as Phil-Gritsch and Amanović. In a statement on his website, Djokovic cited the reasons for the personnel shakeup: "Novak and the team members decided to part ways after a detailed analysis of the game, achieved results in the previous period, and also after discussing private plans of each team member. Despite the fantastic cooperation so far, Djokovic felt he needed to make a change, and to introduce new energy in order to raise his level of play."[304] Sponsorships and business ventures Djokovic endorses Serbian telecommunications company Telekom Srbija and German nutritional supplement brand FitLine.[305] Since turning professional in 2003, Djokovic has been wearing Adidas clothing. At the end of 2009, Djokovic signed a 10-year deal with the Italian clothing company Sergio Tacchini after Adidas
Adidas
refused to extend his clothing contract (choosing instead to sign Andy Murray).[306] Tacchini doesn't make shoes so Djokovic continued with Adidas
Adidas
as his choice of footwear. His sponsorship contract with Tacchini was incentive heavy, and due to Djokovic's disproportionate success and dominance in 2011, the company fell behind on bonus payments, leading to the termination of the sponsorship contract.[307][308] From 2011, Djokovic began to wear custom Red and Blue Adidas
Adidas
Barricade 6.0's shoes, referring to the colours of the Serbian national flag. By April 2012, the Tacchini deal had fallen first short and then apart.[309] At that point, he was set to join forces with Nike, Inc.,[310] but instead, on 23 May 2012, Uniqlo
Uniqlo
appointed Djokovic as its global brand ambassador. The five-year sponsorship, reportedly worth €8 million per year,[311] began on 27 May 2012 in Paris' Roland-Garros French Open

In August 2011, Djokovic became the brand ambassador of Swiss watch manufacturer Audemars Piguet.[313] Less than a month later, Djokovic signed a sponsorship deal with German car company Mercedes-Benz.[314] In March 2012, Djokovic was announced by Bombardier Aerospace
Bombardier Aerospace
as its latest Learjet

brand ambassador, thus joining the likes of actor and pilot John Travolta, architect Frank Gehry, maestro Valery Gergiev, and classical pianist Lang Lang.[315] From January 2014 Djokovic has been endorsing French car manufacturer Peugeot.[316] At the same time he entered into an endorsement deal with Japanese watch manufacturer Seiko,[317] having just ended his affiliation with their rivals Audemars Piguet.[318] In early 2015, ahead of Australian Open, Djokovic teamed up with Australian banking corporation ANZ for a social media campaign to raise money for local communities across the Asia Pacific region.[319][320] At the same time his partnership with Jacob's Creek, an Australian wine brand owned by Orlando Wines, was announced in regards to the production and distribution of 'Made By' film series, a documentary style content meant to "show a side of Novak not seen before as he recounts never before told life stories from Belgrade, Serbia, celebrating what has made him the champion he is today".[321] According to Forbes, Djokovic earned US$31 million in endorsements during 2014, behind only Roger Federer (US$58 million), Tiger Woods

($50 million), Phil Mickelson ($48), LeBron James

($35), and Rory McIlroy ($32).[322] Since 2004, the business end of Djokovic's career has been handled by Israeli managers Amit Naor (former pro tennis player turned sports agent) and Allon Khakshouri, the duo that also had Marat Safin
Marat Safin
and Dinara Safina
Dinara Safina
as their clients. In June 2008, after the duo entered into partnership with CAA Sports, the sports division of Hollywood talent firm Creative Artists Agency, meaning that the famous company started representing tennis players for the first time,[323] Djokovic formally signed with CAA Sports.[324] After Djokovic's contract with CAA Sports expired during summer 2012, he decided to switch representation, announcing IMG Worldwide
IMG Worldwide
as his new representatives in December 2012.[325] On 22 May 2017, Djokovic was unveiled as a brand ambassador of Lacoste after a five-year partnership with Uniqlo.[326] Investments In 2005, as Djokovic moved up the tennis rankings, he ventured into the business world. Most of these activities are channeled through Family Sport, a legal entity in Serbia
Serbia
founded and run by members of his immediate family. Registered as a limited liability company, Family Sport initially focused on hospitality, specifically the restaurant business, by establishing Novak Café & Restaurant, a franchise themed around Djokovic's tennis success. Over time, the company, whose day-to-day operations are mostly handled by Novak's father Srdjan and uncle Goran, expanded its activities into real estate, sports/entertainment event organization, and sports apparel distribution.[327] The company launched Novak Café & Restaurant in 2008 in the Belgrade
Belgrade
municipality of Novi Beograd, the flagship location in a franchised chain of theme café-restaurants. During 2009, two more locations were added—one in Kragujevac
Kragujevac
and the other in Belgrade, the city's second, in September at the neighbourhood of Dorćol overlooking the playing courts of Serbia

Open whose inaugural edition took place several months earlier.[328] On 16 December 2011 a location in Novi Sad
Novi Sad
was opened,[329] however, it operated just over three years before closing in late March 2015.[330] It was announced in late 2012 that Djokovic had purchased the entire existing 2013 production of donkey cheese, which is produced by a single farm in Serbia. It was believed that it was done to ensure a reliable supply for his chain of restaurants in Serbia.[331] One week later, it was proven that the story was exaggerated.[332][333] Banja Luka
Banja Luka
in neighbouring Republika Srpska got its Novak Café & Restaurant location on 16 October 2015 within Hotel Trešnja on Banj hill.[334][335] In February 2008, the company reached an agreement with local authorities in the city of Kragujevac
Kragujevac
about jointly entering into a real estate development deal that was to include 4 hectares of city-owned land at Veliki Park being developed into a tennis centre with 14 courts. But by 2010 the company pulled out of these plans.[336][337] In March 2008, Family Sport won a municipal authority-organized tender in Novi Beograd
Novi Beograd
by submitting an €11 million bid for the 3.8 hectares of land located in Ivan Ribar neighbourhood;[338] with the ambitious plan to build a big tennis centre there.[339][340][341] As of spring 2013, construction was yet to commence. In 2009, the company managed to buy an ATP tournament known as the Dutch Open and bring it to Serbia

where it became – Serbia

city authorities, the tournament's inaugural edition was held during May 2009 at the city-owned ' Milan

Gale Muškatirović' courts, located at an attractive spot in Dorćol neighbourhood.[342] On Monday, 4 July 2011, one day after Djokovic won Wimbledon, Family Sport organized the homecoming reception in front of the National Assembly building with more than 80,000 people gathering to greet him.[343][344] In May 2015, right after winning his fourth Rome Masters title, Djokovic launched a line of nutritional food products, called Djokolife.[345] Unveiled in Milan

region with a view of turning it into vineyards and moving into the winemaking business.[348] In popular culture Owing to his extroverted personality, fluency in several languages, and willingness to go along with comedic concepts, Djokovic became a fixture on entertainment-based TV talk shows around the globe immediately upon achieving a measure of prominence via results on the tennis court.[349][350] After winning the Australian Open, his first major, in early 2008, Djokovic appeared on the American late-night programme The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.[351][352] In May 2008, he was a special guest during the first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest, held in Belgrade
Belgrade
that year. He threw a big tennis ball into the crowd, announcing the start of the voting and together with one of the show's co-presenters, Željko Joksimović, Djokovic sang a song about Belgrade.[353]

Throughout late April and early May 2009, during ATP Master Series tournaments in Rome and Madrid, respectively, the Serb was a guest on the Fiorello Show hosted by Italian comedian Rosario Fiorello[354] followed by an appearance on Pablo Motos' show El Hormiguero.[355] During the week off, in-between the two tournaments, Djokovic came home to Belgrade
Belgrade
where he was interviewed by Nenad Lj. Stefanović on the RTS' hour-long, flagship one-on-one talk programme Svedok.[356] In 2009, and 2010, Djokovic won an Oscar of Popularity for the most popular male athlete in Serbia.[357] Djokovic is also featured in the music video for the song "Hello" by Martin Solveig
Martin Solveig
and Dragonette. The video, filmed at Stade Roland Garros, shows Solveig facing off against Bob Sinclar, another DJ, in a tennis match. When the referee calls a crucial ball "Out", Djokovic enters the arena and convinces the referee otherwise.[358] In 2010, the Serbian blues-rock band Zona B recorded the song "The Joker", dedicating it to Djokovic.[359][360] Djokovic's international television appearances particularly intensified during his successful 2011 season. After winning Wimbledon and reaching the number one spot on the ATP list, he again appeared on Leno's Tonight Show as well as on Conan O'Brien's show on TBS.[361] Djokovic's dramatic win at the US Open was followed by another television blitz including spots on Live with Regis and Kelly, CBS' The Early Show, NBC's Today[362] as well as a walk-on appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.[363] On 25 June 2011, its seventieth Congress in Chicago, all the members unanimously awarded Djokovic the Order of Serbian National Defense in America I class, the highest decoration of the SND. The order was given to him because of his merits in the international sport scene and his contributions to the reputation of Serbs and Serbia
Serbia
around the world.[364] In mid-November 2011, he made a triumphant return to Rai 1's Il più grande spettacolo dopo il weekend, hosted by Fiorello.[365] In late November during the ATP World Tour
ATP World Tour
Finals in London he was a guest on David Frost's interview programme Frost Over The World on Al Jazeera English.[366] He was voted the 19th most influential man on AskMen.com's Top 49 Most Influential Men of 2011.[367] On invitation from film producer Avi Lerner, Djokovic became part of the high-budget Hollywood movie production The Expendables 2
The Expendables 2
in a cameo playing himself,[368] which he shot on 29 November 2011 in a warehouse in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia.[369] However, his bit part was cut out of the final version of the movie.[370] He appeared on the cover of Italian GQ's March 2012 issue.[371] Also, in March he was profiled on the CBS
CBS
show 60 Minutes by their correspondent Bob Simon. He was named amongst the 100 most influential people of 2012 by TIME magazine.[372] On 26 October 2012, he appeared on Canal+'s Le Grand Journal.[373]
