Novak Djokovic is one of the greatest tennis players of all times. The 34-year-old had an incredible season in 2021. He won three out of the four grand slams, picking up titles at Melbourne, Paris, and London. Additionally, he won the Belgrade 2 Open and the Paris Masters.

He also reached the semi-finals of the Tokyo Olympics and the ATP Finals, and was a finalist at the US Open.In the week spanning the Paris Masters 2021, Novak Djokovic not only won his fifth title of the season, but also made a number of new records. He became the first male player to finish as the world no. 1 for 7 years. He also overtook Roger Federer with most wins as the world no. 1. Currently, Novak Djokovic is on his 348th week as the world no. 1.

Given his hugely successful career on-court, it is only natural that Novak Djokovic be flooded with business deals off the court. The Serb has endorsement deals with Lacoste, ASICS, Seiko, and Head amongst other companies, and is often seen promoting their products. In a new advertisement, Nole was seen promoting the 308 HYBRID car model of Peugeot. He has been associated with the brand since 2014.

Novak Djokovic shared the screen with Italian actor Stefano Accorsi in the latest ad by automobile manufacturer Peugeot. The 30 second ad is titled “Zero è buono” (translation: zero is good).

The ad shows a tired Accorsi trying his hand at tennis on a clay court. Afterwards, exhausted, he walks to his car, to seen Novak Djokovic leaning against it. When the latter questions him on how many points did he score, Accorsi says “zero”. To this, Novak jokingly replies that “zero is good”, referring to Peugeot’s 5 electric zeroes (zero emission, zero odour, zero gear changes, zero noise, and zero vibration). As the actor points out that zero is probably not so good in tennis, the grandslam champion laughingly responds ‘not so good in tennis’.
