Serbian Davis Cup Team Captain Nenad Zimonjic hopes world No. 1 Novak Djokovic remains healthy and continues to achieve success on the biggest stage. Djokovic turned 33 this past Friday and returned to Serbia after quarantining for two months with his family in Marbella.
Djokovic, a 17-time Grand Slam champion, several times spoke about how he enjoyed being around his family for a longer period of time. Earlier this year, Zimonjic was the captain of the Serbian ATP Cup team — which conquered the event’s inaugural edition.
“I wish he (Djokovic) continues having a successful career and continues to grow in his private and business life. Also to avoid injuries and remain happy,” Zimonjic said, per Blic. “Last time we had a good conversation on Instagram and we keep in touch regularly.
We had so much time and this period was a good opportunity for everyone to dedicate to some things for which we usually don’t have time and also to spend time with our families. Personally I had a good time and I believe that Novak enjoyed his time with his family in Spain.
Though they were quarantining, I believe it was nice for them to be together.” Zimonjic doesn’t know what will happen with the season but he hopes the Serbian team will gather later this year. “Everything remains uncertain, when will tournaments start, but I’m optimistic and I hope our team will gather for a business meeting somewhere in November.
Before the, if we are all in Serbia, it’s possible we will all meet and have some good time. It would be great for us to meet as soon as possible,” Zimonjic said.
