Serbian tennis superstar Novak Djokovic has revealed that he would be interested in studying anything related to health. "Health. Anything that is related to health. I mean, such a wide area of life obviously. That attracts me a lot.
The nutrition, the wellness, well-being, mental well-being, emotional well-being. I don't know particularly what at the moment, but anything that is really related to health and well-being of a person," Djokovic said, when asked what he would like to study.
"History, archeology, I like that as well. I love the ancient civilization knowledge. History, obviously things related to that kind of education. "I don't know which one I would pick first, but I probably would stick with health because that's something that I as a professional athlete had to really learn well.
I'm obviously still learning a lot about myself. I like to implement things in my own life, everyday life, test it on my own body, whether it's food, supplements, recovery techniques, stuff like this that would help my performance, recovery, well-being in general.
I think it would probably be in that area."
Djokovic says Matteo Berrettini deserved the Madrid Masters final
Berrettini ended runner-up to Alexander Zverev in the Madrid Masters final last week and Djokovic says the Italian absolutely deserved to make the final.
"First of all, I think he deserved to be in the finals of Madrid. I wasn't surprised. I think he deserves to be a top-10 player. Yes, he was injured, then maybe he didn't play so well or up to his standard in the last maybe, I don't know, six, seven months.
At the end of the day he earned his spot in the top 10 rankings. That's something I think anyone has to admit and respect," Djokovic said. "I'm very much aware of his quality of tennis. I'm not surprised with the win he had in Belgrade, then the streak that continued in Madrid.
He was also pretty close to win it in the finals."
Also, Djokovic spoke positively of the Rome Masters.
"I mean, it always feels like home coming back to Rome. Honestly, with the amount of love and appreciation that I get and respect from people here, not just on the court, but outside in the organization here, from the drivers, the restaurant, people in hotel, everyone is really super kind to me," Djokovic said.
"Maybe it helps that I speak Italian. Probably does. I love Italy. Who doesn't? The history this city has, this country. The food. La gioia della vita qui. It brings me happiness every time I'm about to come to Italy and to play in Rome. Each year the love affair grows even more because the bond is stronger and stronger."
