It’s my pleasure – Novak Djokovic

The world No. 1 has no qualms about playing street tennis with children. Maybe he just couldn’t resist the urge, considering he’s been out of the Tour for a few weeks now.

When he first saw the children playing without a net, he went to see them and had a little chat with them.

“It was spontaneous, I came back with rackets, the first time I saw the children playing tennis without a net. Then I told them I was going to put a net between two street lights to plug them in and play well.

I can only imagine the rush the children went through when the hero of the country approached them. They probably never even dreamed of having the chance to play with one of the greatest tennis players of all time, especially on the streets of Belgrade.

Humility has always been a mainstay of Novak’s character throughout his career. He is a man of principles. And while there have been times when his drive on the pitch hasn’t gone well with fans, it’s imperative to understand the range of emotions players go through in the heat of the moment.

It is not always easy to keep your emotions under wraps when you are alone in a fight.
