Novak Djokovic is one of the most popular tennis players around the world. The 24-time Grand Slam champion is well-loved by his fans, and Novak reciprocates too. Novak’s wife, Jelena Djokovic, is also often seen engaging with his fans online. A recent interaction between Jelena and one of Novak’s oldest fans has elicited heartwarming reactions from fans.
Djokovic has been on a record-breaking spree lately. He demolished Jannik Sinner in the final of the Nitto ATP Finals, winning his seventh year-end trophy. At the same time, Djokovic has completed 400 weeks as the ATP’s top-ranked player. It is a remarkable feat, one that is unlikely to be broken anytime soon.
Since Novak hit this milestone, fans have poured him with wishes and congratulations. Djokovic himself arranged a fun little activity for the NoleFam. However, one wish stood out from the rest, and it was from a 96-year-old woman.
