Novak Djokovic & Wife

Novak Djokovic seemed pretty satisfied after his wife Jelena cut his hair amid the coronavirus lockdown.

 

 
Djokovic, the world number one who was yet to lose a match this season before the tour was suspended until mid-July due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is currently residing in Spain.

And with his hair in need of a trim, he gave Jelena the responsibility and was happy with the end result, saying ‘Not bad!’, as he showed it off to his 7.2 million Instagram followers.

Posted on both his and Jelena’s Instagram account, she captioned her post: ‘From caveman to my man.’

Jelena was last week shamed with a ‘False Information’ badge by Instagram for spreading 5G conspiracy theories surrounding the coronavirus, after sharing a 10-minute video which focuses on the theory.

Meanwhile, a host of top men’s and women’s players are participating in the virtual Madrid Open this week, as they attempt to keep fans engaged with players facing off on the Tennis World Tour video game.

Djokovic however is not participating, and instead has in recent weeks been planning ways in which tennis’ top stars can help those in need during the current lockdown.

As president of the ATP Player Council, Djokovic suggested plans for players in the top-50 to help those lower-ranked players who are potentially struggling for income.

However, World No 3 Dominic Thiem dismissed this proposal, saying that players should be able to choose where and how they spend their own money.

In addition, Roger Federer last week proposed merging the men’s and women’s tennis tours, which gained traction and support amongst others such as Rafael Nadal and Billie Jean King.

Tennis players around the world have been without action since the beginning of March, with both the French Open and Wimbledon already postponed and cancelled respectively, with doubts about August’s US Open too.

The 2020 season has started a couple of months ago and Novak Djokovic has already struck a streak of 18 straight wins by showing up at Indian Wells as undefeated. The extraordinary start of the Serbian is enhanced by a balance of 7-0 against players in the ATP top 10.

At the 2020 ATP Cup, Djokovic helped Serbia win its first title by scoring six victories including wins over Medvedev in the semifinal and Nadal in the final. At the 2020 Australian Open, he defeated long time rival Roger Federer in straight sets en route to the final where he defeated three-time grand slam runner-up Dominic Thiem in five sets.

This is Djokovic’s 8th win at the Australian Open, making him the first Open Era male player to win Grand Slam titles in three different decades. For his 17th Grand Slam win he received 2.5 Million Euro as prize money.

The World number 1 won the title at Dubai Tennis Championships fifth time, defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final. On the International Women’s Day, Novak highlighted three women, in particular, who have been his greatest support.

“That would be my mother, but also my wife, and my tennis mother who is not with us anymore. Jelena Gencic was truly someone who dedicated so much time and effort into developing me as a tennis player. She put all the essential ingredients into me when I was very young” – Djokovic said.

“My wife, who is the mother of our two children, does a wonderful job being a dedicated mother, an incredibly passionate philanthropist, and the best wife that I can possibly have” – he added.
