Novak Djokovic made his roommate have his first alcoholic drink!

Cosmin Georgescu, Novak Djokovic's former roommate at Nikola Pilic's tennis academy, has revealed that Novak Djokovic was the person who made him have his first alcoholic drink. Georgescu said in an interview with the Romanian newspaper ProSport that he discovered alcohol after Nole offered him a cocktail.

Cosmin Georgescu's experience with Novak Djokovic

The Romanian coach told how his tennis career began: "I had finished a training session, I had no idea how tennis was going. I came home and my father told me: in a week you will go to Germany to a tennis academy.

You will play tennis and also attend high school. I didn't know a word of German and I didn't know English well. Overwhelmed with emotion, I started crying." Djokovic was Georgescu's first colleague in Pilic's tennis academy: "I've arrived in Germany!

Cosmin, I'm leaving in three days, see you in eight months, my father told me, in a short and exhaustive way. A total shock, but I was lucky: I had the opportunity to have incredible and extraordinary colleagues, including Novak Djokovic!

Nole was my first roommate at Croatian tennis legend Nikki Pilic's tennis academy. Pilic put me in room with Djokovic! There were other guys, both Croatian and Serbian, even Russian. Pilic's academy was not very profitable and prosperous at the time.

Pilic was hoping to get a talented guy to market her academy." Coach Georgescu recounted how Djokovic introduced him to alcohol in a Munich bar: "I was with Djokovic for the first time in my life in a Munich bar! I drank my first glass of alcohol with Nole.

He was older, already more mature. He took me to that bar and honored me with a cocktail saying: for my good Romanian friend! It was my first experience while trying to get used to life in Germany. And just with Djokovic! Then Nole went to Bucharest for the Romanian Open, where Ion Tiriac gave him a wild-card."
