A night with Novak Djokovic?! Yes, please!
Ahead of the Australian Open, the world’s number 2 put his racket down at Margaret Court Arena in Australia. Instead, you could find Djokovic wrestling an Australian footballer, attempting to play cricket, or showing off his soccer skills.
The event was raising money for the Novak Djokovic Foundation (NDF) who seeks to invest in long-term sustainable early-childhood education programs. They have worked on programs like Free Magazines for Students, Walk a Mile for a Smile, and Tennis Court Priboj, among many others. Novak himself feels very strongly in this commitment to Early Childhood Education and Development, as he recently stated “By giving them a fair start in life, we are improving the future of our whole society.”
The event was held in conjunction with the Australian Open. By the looks of the photos and videos, it looks like the tennis superstar had as much fun as those in the stands.
The Australian Open begins on January 16th, and Djokovic is hoping to win the competition for the seventh time.
