Another win of Novak Djokovic! Another great match between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. Another tennis match fulled with emotions, good and bad, happy and sad. This time, Novak is the good and happy one.

Novak Djokovic, born in Republic of Serbia is the Tennis Player Number ONE in World!

There are many stories about this great tennis player, but what I would write about are his personal characteristics, and way of his career, which put him, beside everyone else on World.

The opponent of "Numero Uno" will play final of Rolan Garos tournament, versus Rafael Nadal.

Novak Djokovic - Insider

Novak Djokovic, my country-fellow, born in Belgrade, Serbia, on 22th of May 1987, have picked up his racket, for the first time in 1991 - in that time, Djokovic was only 4 years old.

The time he picked up his first racket was summer, 1991 - on one of the tennis summer camps, that was leaded by Jelena Genčić - prestigious tennis trainer, at time.

She said,in interview for national Serbian television, that "she knew that he's going to be champion... He was talented, hard-working, and everything that one world-class player should have, he already had." - she claims.

Serbia's pride and champion, or individual success?

The question that could be heard more and more, here in Serbia, is : "Is Novak's success, individual, and should be celebrated like that - or it's success of whole Serbia, and should be celebrated by whole nation? "

How time passes by, Novak is becoming an "Serbian icon". There is no one in Serbia, that doesn't know who is Novak Djokovic, where is he born, what he does, who he goes out with, and etc... But, is his success, individual success or success of whole nation ? Should Serbia be proud of him, and call him "World Ambassador of Serbia", and make hes wins - national wins - or Novak's wins and success should be considered and celebrated as individual success.

In one time, there were an rumor that picture of Novak Djokovic will be printed on new Republic Serbian Dinar - on bill of 2000 dinars. Huge polemic was brought to the surface. It's common, rational, and kind of "normal" for bill notes to be printed with people that contributed to country on World, or continental level.

The real question is, has Novak contributed to the country with his wins or he has contributed to its own career and nothing more ?

Novak Djokovic, the ordinary man

What's the most attracting thing about Novak, and why people love him so much his "approachable" attitude and his charisma that is so big that it isn't a rare thing, for him, to make laugh whole stadium - before match , imitating other tennis players.

His imitations are wide-known, on YouTube and other video channels, and his inspiration for imitation are usually female tennis players like: "Sharapova, Jankovic, Williams..." - no one is left out. But, what is interesting, is that - no one get's his jokes for real, or offensive.

Novak Djokovic and humanitarian work

Humanitarian work, is something noble for everyone who has material, financial, opportunity to do it.

Novak Djokovic, has donated food, clothes, and medicines - in general - he donated a lot on Kosovo. In Kosovo Mitrovica, one of the bigger towns on Kosovo, Novak Djokovic played tennis with kids, and donated them things that they really need.

"Battle for Babies" - project of "Fond B92", is meant for donating new incubators for hospitals and birth-clinics. Novak haven't excluded himself from donating an incubator for newborns. On this way, he showed that he wants to leave a trace in whole Serbian history, by giving something that will save lives of "real-mini-heros".

Number One - AGAIN?!

- After loosing the tournament in London, and after defeat of Andy Marrey - followed by the win of Roger Fedderer, after just few months spent on first place of ATP list, Novak lost his place - and came second, behind Fedderer.

- Once again, on the same place where he lost his first place, in London, Novak will again be first, running almost 3000 points from the 2nd placed Roger. How come that?
The ATP Commission decided to withdraw the points gathered on three tournaments where the Fedderer was first. Why? I can't say surely, but it seems that the played tournaments got down-ranked and the first place, by wining those isn't anymore 1000, but 500...

- By this order, Novak was already just 750 points behind the number one. With this, he is already number one - but as "lafamillia" get the information from reliable source - Novak will celebrate his FIRST POSITION in London, where he actually lost his first place. He is already first - but, the "official" celebration and announcement "will be after winning the London Tournament from the 1000 series. By winning, or even loosing - he is already #1 ON ATP list of World tenis players.

Individual or national ?

What do You think, is Novak Djokovic success , success of whole Serbian nation or his individual success ?

      @WannaB Writer,

      ... First of all, I would like to congratulate You on BEING writer. I think You should change the nick name on the HB's. :) From "Wanna B..." to the "SeniorWriter" ;)

      - Second is the fact that Novak is very noble and friendly guy that whole knows of. For "Novak Djokovic" World knows as a sports guy, but World doesn't know that he gave SEVERAL huge donations to the CHILDREN on Kosovo - no matter what their nationality is.

      - Nobody speaks about him as a noble man, that gives more than he can of HIS PERSONAL budget. So not from the sponsors, that he can have - whatever he wants to, but from his own pocket for food and primary things for the children on Kosovo, as his parents (one of, or both - I'm not sure...) born in Kosovo.

      I don't much follow tennis, but my husband was born in Serbia and one of my high school friends married a Serb and moved to Belgrade. I think his achievement is individual. His work made him a champion. But he is certainly someone whom all Serbs can be proud of.
