Plant-Based Tennis Star Novak Djokovic Wins The Australian Open

by | February 3, 2020

Tennis pro Novok Djokovic — who follows a plant-based diet — has won the Australian Open, marking his 17th grand slam title.

Mats Wilander — a previous tennis world champion turned commentator — has suggested that Djokovic could become the greatest player ever.

“The door is open for him to start climbing through it and talk about being the greatest ever” stated Wilander.

“When Novak gets an Australian Open he usually has a good year” said the commentator, predicting that the plant-based athlete could win at both Wimbledon and the US Open this year.

“This is a huge win for him going forward” Wilander added.

“Grateful and Blessed”

“I’m super happy and grateful and blessed” said Djokovic of his Australian Open success.

“At the same time I probably won’t be able to go through all different emotions until I have some time and I relax myself with my family. Looking at the horizon, we can dig deep in the emotions.”

Novak Djokovic Plant-Based Diet

The tennis ace has previously explained that he doesn’t like to be labelled as a vegan.

“I don’t like the labels, to be honest” Djokovic said, “I do eat plant-based, for quite a few years already…But because of the misinterpretations of labels and misuse of labels, I just don’t like that kind of name.”

The tennis player hopes to encourage other people in sports to understand the benefits of an animal-free diet.

“Hopefully I can inspire other athletes that it is possible to be plant-based and to recover well, to have strength, to have muscles” he said.
