Djokovic is known for his good relationship with the fans
Novak Djokovic has shown numerous acts of kindness to his fan base. As proof, a child in the stands made the entire center court of the Astana Open laugh after thanking Novak Djokovic for gifting him a wristband with a roar.
Djokovic also smiled at the boy’s reaction. «Djokovic is Santa Claus. At every tournament, he distributes gifts to the public (provoking unlikely reactions),» one Nole fan tweeted. Watch the video of the moment Djokovic hands the gift to the boy here: «Santa Claus» Novak Djokovic makes the boy roar after handing the gift, the stadium laughs.
Djokovic’s kindness also extends to his fellow tennis players. The Novak Djokovic twins’ compassion has affected Ivan and Matej Sabanov, who decided a year ago to represent Serbia instead of Croatia. The Sabanov brothers, both 29, were born in Serbia but spent most of their careers in Croatia.
World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has been strongly supporting the Sabanov brothers as they can feel free to train whenever and as much as they want at their tennis club in Belgrade. The Sabanov brothers captured their first ATP title in Belgrade in 2021.
«Novak gave us everything. He gave us the best possible conditions. Novak Djokovic’s support is something that cannot be described in words. He has always been our role model and the person we admire throughout our careers.
Each of your advice is extremely valuable to our careers and we feel very honored to have the opportunity to learn from such a tennis player. We trained with him, he gave us the best possible conditions and that’s what we really needed,» Matej Sabanov explained, according to Vecernji List.
