Born in Belgrade in 1987, Djokovic started playing tennis at the age of four. He was discovered at the age of six by Jelena Genčić, one of the most famous players of Yugoslavia at the time – when she saw Djokovic play for the first time, she actually called him the greatest talent she had ever seen after Monika Seles. At the age of twelve, Djokovic was relocated to Germany, to a famous tennis school where he spent his next four years.
It was during that time, at the age of fourteen, that Djokovic started his international career, playing at championships abroad and winning prizes in singles, doubles and team competitions alike. As a member of the Yugoslav National Team, he got into the finals of the Junior Davis Cup in 2001, but he lost the single game.
His professional career started in 2003, winning three Future and three Challenger tournaments by 2005. He first played at a Grand Slam, the Australian Open in the same year, defeating Wawrinka, but being defeated by Marat Safin in the finals.
In 2006 Marián Vajda, a former Slovak tennis player became his new coach (replaced by Boris Becker – his current coach since December, 2013) and this new collaboration marked the beginning of a very successful period for Djokovic. In 2006 he won his first ATP title at the Dutch Tour and his second at the Moselle Open – two prizes that elevated him among the prestigious member of the world’s top 20 players.
A player with immense potential, Novak Djokovic climbed to the top 10 the following year and it was in 2007 as well that he won his first master series. In 2008, besides participating in numerous prestigious tournaments, he played at the Olympic Games and won the bronze medal in men’s singles. In 2009, he played ten finals and won five titles, his success continuing into 2010 as well when he won the Davis Cup and qualified as a US Open runner-up.
It looks like Djokovic has not reached the top of his performance yet. In 2012 he won the Australian Open as well as the French Open, making it to the finals in four Grand Slams consecutively. He never forgot his Serbian origins – he was bearing the national flag for Serbia at the Olympic Games in 2012.
In 2015 Djokovic won 11 titles, including four consecutive end-of-year titles, so tennis fans are surely in for lots of excitement in the tournaments to come next year, too.
