“He’s in love with tennis right now. It was fully his own desire to really pursue tennis. So of course I’m going to be there for him. I never force him to be on the tennis court, but if he wants, I try to always make myself ready to be there and play with him.” While the 35-year-old wanted his son to try lots of “different sports”, he said he would help him become a pro if and when the time came.
“Of course I will support him in any possible way I can so that he can be professional tennis player if he intends to, if he really wants to,” Djokovic said. “But it’s too early to speak about it, to be honest. He’s not even eight years old. It’s important for me that we have a relationship as a father and son, first of all, primary, before anything else, and that he’s enjoying life, that he’s having fun.”
