Novak Djokovic Sends Heartwarming Message to Encourage His Two Young Fans Battling Autism




World No.1 Novak Djokovic never disappoints when it comes to his fans. Be it on or off the court, Djokovic tries to support and motivate his fans in every way possible. Djokovic again did something exceptional which is getting a lot of attention in the tennis world.

The 17-time Grand Slam winner recently shared a video to encourage his young fans. The episode deals with 2 two boys, Petar and Nikola, who live in Macedonia and are suffering from autism.

It is actually a disorder in which an individual is not able to communicate and interact properly. Their father, Zoran Mijalkov, looks after them but doesn’t see them happy often. However, one night, his son Petar stayed up all night just to watch Djoker’s match.

“He stayed in front of the screen all the time. He watched the match until the end. And … since then – he hasn’t missed a single performance by Djokovic,” said the father.

Following this, the younger son also took an interest in Djokovic’s game. The father struggled to find a poster of Djokovic to place in their room but could not find one. But, Djokovic soon learned about the family and made a video to make them happy.

“I love you so much and I hug you”- Novak Djokovic

In the video message, Novak was really polite and friendly. Although he was in Belgrade, he hoped that he would soon meet the two boys personally.

“Hi, Petre. Peco, how are you? I’m sending you a big greeting and a big hug from Belgrade, hoping to see you live soon. I love you so much and I hug you. Take care!” said a cheerful Djokovic in the video.

It was really a shocker for the family. The boys and their father were on cloud nine after they got the video. Not only did Djokovic want to meet them soon, but he also addressed them with their names which was really a kind gesture. In response, the father also gave a heartwarming message to Djokovic.

“It takes a little to be happy. Huge thanks to Nole who is not only the best tennis player but above all a man with a huge soul and heart. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul for helping my son Petar have happy moments and smiles like watching you play. The power of love!” responded the father.
