Novak Djokovic’s love for football is pretty evident. As the World No. 1 was in Turin, he met with one of the most successful and prestigious teams based in Turin, Juventus. He specifically met with his fellow countrymen and compatriots, Dusan Vlahovic and Filip Kostic, before the start of the ATP Finals.

Notably, the Serbian is an avid follower of football and always takes some time from tennis to follow and watch football matches. Recently, the US Open champion made the best use of the opportunity of his presence in Turin to meet up with one of the most prestigious football teams in the world, Juventus. 

Juventus competes in Serie A, the highest tier of the Italian Football League. The Serb watched the team play recently as they reached the top of the table in Serie A, defeating Cagliari 2-1.

That’s not all; Novak Djokovic specifically met with two of his countrymen, Dusan Vlahovic and Filip Kostic, and also posted about it on his social media handle. He expressed his feeling of patriotism, as he wished to see these two help rebuild the lost image of Juventus and help Serbia make a name for itself in the world of football. The World No. 1 wanted them to take Serbia’s name further in football, as he has done the same in tennis.
