Novak Djokovic

Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic returned to Sweden after winning his fourth consecutive Wimbledon Grand Slam title for the fourth time in a row and was given a grand welcome in the capital Belgrade. With this, Djokovic won the record-breaking 21st Grand Slam title. However, in protest of the ban on Russian-Belarusian players at Wimbledon, the ATP did not concede a single point in the Grand Slam played on the grass court. Which led to the champion Djokovic being dropped from third to seventh in the rankings. For the first time since 2006, it dropped out of the top five.

Thousands of fans were in Belgrade to welcome Novak Djokovic. His victory procession was taken out, which turned into a grand reception at City Hall. The 6-year-old tennis star also threw a tennis ball at the fans. Djokovic is now just one title away from Federer’s record of winning the most titles at Wimbledon. While Nadal (6 titles) has won the most Grand Slams, only one Grand Slam title is far from the record.

Novak Djokovic has not taken the corona vaccine and has made it clear that if the corona vaccine is made mandatory to play in any tournament, including the Grand Slam, I will go to that tournament, but not under any pressure. Djokovic was deported from Australia earlier this year for failing to administer the corona vaccine.

“I hope to play the US and Australian Open without injections,” he told his fans. Even if I don’t get to play in it, the world is not going to end.
