After winning the Australian Open in 2021 by clearly beating Daniil Medvedev in the final, Novak Djokovic has announced for the first time the production of a new and interesting documentary about his life in the world of tennis.
A film crew followed the Serbian champion around the Tour for several months and captured the background of the journey that led him to come close to the Grand Slam at the US Open, when he had to say goodbye to the dream of him one step away from the sensational business.
The documentary was supposed to come out in early 2022, but the case that broke out in Australia changed Djokovic's plans. The Serbian was forced to miss the Australian Open and leave Melbourne due to his visa being revoked.
The three-year ban has been canceled by the new Australian government and Djokovic will be able to take the field at the next edition of the first Grand Slam of the year.
Djokovic and his documentary: "I hope everyone can see him soon"
In recent years, a lot of material has been collected and the Belgradean revealed that the content could turn into a full-fledged television series.
Djokovic revealed to Tennis Majors: "There have been some changes, considering everything that happened last year. We had established a clear blueprint and then had to change our plans. Now we are adapting to the new needs, we don't have a precise date yet but I think it should come out within the middle of the year.
We are in the editing phase, the finish line is near and I hope everyone can see it soon. We have collected a lot of material, I have had different experiences in my life. So now we are deciding whether it will be a regular documentary or a series.
How would I like to be remembered? I hope more for my virtues than for my defects. I wish people would remember my personality. I try to live my life to the fullest. The way I grew up helped fuel my awareness. I always try to remember where I come from.
Everything I have achieved in life has not been given to me, I had to earn it together with the people who have been close to me and have helped me to live my dream. I hope to spread positive energy."
