Novak Djokovic, also known as Djoker, is a 27 year old serbian tennis player who has already won seven Grand Slam titles and is expected to continue. Novak Djokovic dominates the tennis scene all the while Roger Federer isn’t getting any younger. Novak Djokovic is born in Belgrad, Serbia and started playing tennis when he was just four years old. Already as a child he was talented and his early start made it so that he was a fully fledged professional at the age of 16. His entire family was practicing sports at the time and his younger brothers, Dorde and Marko, still play tennis. However, there is no doubt that Novak is the big star of the family.
Djokovic won his first Grand Slam in 2008. This was in Melbourne during the Australian Open. This is also the tennis tournament he was won the most. He won in 2008, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015. No other player has ever won this tournament this many times since it was opened to professionals. Novak Djokovic is a smart player with multiple strenghts.
He plays a lot from the baseline and often uses his two-handed backhand. Djokovic has arguably the best backhand on the tour. His ability to return service hasa given him an excellent weapon against strong servers. He varies his rebounds often as to switch between offensive and defensive play. He also has a legendary trainer, namely Boris Becker. The collaboration began in 2013 and it has worked out very well for both parties.
Djokovic is aiming fully at winning French Open, he was happy to talk about how much he wants to win a true Grand Slam. In 2015 he has had a strong opening and this year Novak Djokovic has all the opportunities ahead of him.
