The best tennis player in the world Novak Djokovic visited the Lakers’ locker room with fellow tennis player Justin Gimelstob before the game with Atlanta Hawks last night. One day after winning the Dubai Championships halfway around the globe, Djokovic spoke at length with Dwight Howard, who claims he won a school tennis tournament as a kid.
Djokovic was hanging with L.A. Lakers stars Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Dwight Howard and others. Before the match with Hawks Djokovic went to the playground and hit the three points shot.
After he watched the game (Lakers won 99:98, with great role of fantastic Kobe Bryant) Djokovic focused on humanitarian work. Together with 14-time Grand Slam champion Pete Sampras, former World Top 10 player Mardy Fish and the most successful doubles duo of all time the Bryan Brothers will take part in the inaugural Los Angeles Tennis Challenge at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion on Monday, March 4.
Novak is well known about his humanitarian work. He is the founder of Novak Djokovic Foundation which vision is to enable children from disadvantaged communities to grow up, play and develop in stimulative, creative and safe settings, whilst learning to respect others and care for their environment.
