Novak Djokovic Net Worth $180 Million
Novak Djokovic is the son of Srdjan and Dijana Djokovic, and has two younger brothers who are both tennis players. He has been playing tennis since he was four years old, and when he was six in the summer of 1993, Serbian tennis coach Jelena Gencic spotted his talent and started training him. As a 13-year-old, Djokovic went to Munich, Germany, to practice with world-renowned tennis coach Nikola Pilic at his Tennis Academy, and to move on to a higher level of tennis competition. When he was 14, Djokovic’s career entered the international level, as he started competing in recognized tournaments throughout the world, and in 2002 he finished as European champion in the under 16 years category. Two years later, he was ranked the 40th best junior tennis player in the world.
In the 2004 season, Djokovic won his first ATP tournament in Budapest, Hungary, and reached the third round at Wimbledon, which moved him up into the Top 100 tennis players on the ATP list. In the season of 2007, Djokovic reached world No. 3 ranking tennis player by beating the Top 3 – Andy Roddick, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer – and reaching the final of the US Open. His net worth was certainly rising.
The following year he won his first Grand Slam title at the Australian Open, since when he has won 11 more Grand Slam titles, and five end-of-year ATP titles; overall he has won 67 tournaments. His slam titles include six Australian, three Wimbledon, two US and one French. In the season of 2011, Djokovic made history by establishing an impressive winning streak of 43 matches in a row, and so became the world’s No. 1, also increasing his net worth to a large degree.
Thanks mainly to him, Serbia won the international team tennis competition the Davis Cup in 2010, for the first time in history.
Djokovic has won, and been honored with numerous awards; he is a double winner of Laureus World Sports Award for Sportsman of the Year, and BBC Overseas Sports Personality of the Year, the Order of Karadjordje’s Star and the Order of the Republika Srpska. Besides that, he is a UNICEF National Ambassador for Serbia. Also, as he speaks several languages, Novak is in demand for TV interviews and shows wherever he plays, which may add to his net worth.
In his personal life, Novak Djokovic and his wife, Jelena Ristic were childhood sweethearts, and began dating in 2005, just when she was becoming a successful model in Europe. They married in July 2014, and have a son.
Djokovic is a member of the Serbian Orthodox Christian church, and was rewarded with The Order of St. Sava 1st class in 2011 “for his demonstrated love for the church and the Serbian people”. He is a very human person, and in 2007 he founded The Novak Djokovic Foundation to help children in Serbia in education and sports activities, subsequently donating over $1 million.

|1||Britain was offering me a lot of opportunities and they needed someone because Andy [Murray] was the only one, and still is. That had to be a disappointment for all the money they invest. But I didn't need the money as much as I had done. I had begun to make some for myself, enough to afford to travel with a coach, and I said, 'Why the heck?' I am Serbian, I am proud of being a Serbian, I didn't want to spoil that just because another country had better conditions. If I had played for Great Britain, of course I would have played exactly as I do for my country but deep inside, I would never have felt that I belonged. I was the one who took the decision.|
|2||[on donating $100,000 to vulnerable children in Serbia] I hope my donation and support will help make a difference in the lives of young children throughout Serbia, especially those who have fewer opportunities to reach their full potential. Building a solid foundation in the early years of a child's life will not only help him or her reach their reach their full potential but will also result in better societies as a whole. I want to help children in Serbia and around the world so they can realize their dreams. All children have rights and those rights must be protected.|

When you know you're going to be the best in the world and you're reaching the finals of your favorite tournament, it's something special.|
|5||I am Serbian, I am proud of being a Serbian, I didn't want to spoil that just because another country had better conditions. A lot of athletes had been misunderstood in Serbia and it is still not easy always to be appreciated. But hope was there.|
|6||[on winning his second Australian Open title in 2011]: I dedicate this title to my family, my brothers, my girl Jelena, the people that have been with me for so many years, it has been a tough period for our people in Serbia, so this is for my country Serbia, thank you.|
