Djokovic is known for his good relationship with fans
Novak Djokovic has shown numerous acts of kindness to his fan base. As proof, a kid from the stands made the whole center court at the Astana Open laugh after thanking Novak Djokovic for gifting him a wristband with a roar.
Djokovic also smiled at the kid’s reaction. “Djokovic is Santa Claus. At each tournament, he distributes gifts for the public (and triggers improbable reactions),” a Nole fan tweeted. See the video of the moment Djokovic hands the gift to the kid here: “Santa Claus” Novak Djokovic makes kid roar after handing gift, stadium laughs.
Djokovic’s kindness spreads among fellow tennis players as well. Twins Novak Djokovic’s compassion has affected Ivan and Matej Sabanov, which decided a year ago to represent Serbia rather than Croatia. The Sabanov brothers, both 29, were born in Serbia but spent the majority of their careers for Croatia.
World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has been strongly supporting the Sabanov brothers as they can feel free to train whenever they want and as much they want in his tennis club in Belgrade. The Sabanov brothers captured their maiden 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.
Every piece of his advice is extremely valuable for our careers and we are 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, per Vecernji List.
