Novak Djokovic shares tennis tips with youngsters in the street while walking his dog

Novak Djokovic happily shared some tennis tips with youngsters on the streets of Belgrade this week while out walking his dog.

The kids were delighted to bump into the world number one, crowding around him, as he went on to give one young boy a lesson on stance, grip and tennis swing while the others looked on.

Djokovic lost the French Open final earlier this month to king of the clay court Rafael Nadal, but he is still on track to retain his top ranked position at the end of the year.

The Serbian announced this week that he was dropping out of the Paris Masters due to feeling exhausted and is taking a short break.

He will then play two more tournaments this year in Vienna and the ATP Finals in London in order to retain his number one status.

“This has been a pretty strange season, but I hope to finish it in the first position. That is my goal and what I keep working on” said Novak Djokovic.

“I have played a lot in the last two and a half months. With the addition that I have not been able to go out or travel a lot.

“First because of the restrictions and then because of the quarantine rules in the tournaments. That has left me very exhausted on a mental level.”
