Novak Djokovic recently spent some time in a village in Montenegro, sharing a few wonderful moments with a group of kids in the settlement of Jasenovo Polje. The Serbian tennis great has been engaging in different kinds of activities since his Wimbledon title victory and has been training with the hope of being allowed to compete at the US Open.
After sharing some laughs with the kids, Djokovic also interacted with some of the older residents present there.
The 35-year-old often travels to Montenegro to spend a few days there. Soon after his 2022 Wimbledon victory, he was seen holidaying at various locations across the country with friends and family.
Djokovic will miss out on the ATP Masters 1000 event in Montreal this coming week, with most of his top competitors (barring Rafael Nadal) set to battle it out for the title. With the vaccine mandate still active in Canada, Djokovic had no option but to withdraw from the 2022 Canadian Open, thus missing the event for a second consecutive year.
The 21-time Grand Slam champion is now hoping to get an exemption to enter the United States for next week’s Cincinnati Open and eventually the US Open, which begins three weeks from now.
