World No.1 Novak Djokovic and his foundation often implement multiple projects to help children in Serbia. However, now the 18-time Grand Slam champion has expressed his love for kids playing tennis in Cameroon.
The former French tennis professional Yannick Noah, who spent his childhood in Cameroon, recently uploaded a video on his social media page. The 45 seconds short film shows a dozen children preparing themselves before hitting the two balls on the court.
“This Is Pure Love And Passion For Tennis”: Djokovic
After watching an inspirational video, the six-time year-end No.1 reposted that on his social media pages. Serb also expressed his gratitude to the organisers of the event.
“This is pure love and passion for tennis. I love this video and send my gratitude to the coaches who made this happen. So creative, well done! P.S. I love how they sing and hop while waiting for their turn to hit the ball,” Novak Djokovic tweeted.

Novak Djokovic Is A Believer In Childhood Dreams
Serb’s childhood tennis practise and interview videos are a source of motivation for the next generation, especially his seven-year-old interview clip is very famous in the tennis world. And he often stresses why kids should be motivated from their early ages.
Nine-time Australian Open champion once said, “I think that every child, whatever he wants to become, should always dream, imagine. It helps move them towards the realization of those dreams. I had improvised trophies made of cardboard, plastic. I lifted those trophies that brought me where I am today.”
Following his withdrawal from the Miami Open 2021, Djokovic is now practising on the gravel surface ahead of the European Swing.
