Tennis World Number One Novak Djokovic hasspent the past two months locked down due to the coronavirus pandemic with his family in Marbella.
Admittedly, it’s not a bad pad to be locked down in. The luxurious nine bedroom villa is built with beautiful marble and is designed in a partly Moroccan style. There’s a private tennis court where Djokovic trained every day during the lockdown, as well as a large swimming pool, cinema room, billiard, table tennis, table football, a gym, sauna, hammam, jacuzzi, bar, and a barbecue area.
Recently Djokovic returned to the practice courts at the Club de Tenis Puente Romano, where he was thanked by Marbella mayor Angeles Munoz via Twitter ‘for the fidelity he has to our city, to which comes to rest and visit his brother Marko, to the point that he decided to spend the confinement with his family here’.
“The fact that the current No 1 of the ATP opts for Marbella reflects that we are a destination of excellence, not only to enjoy our very complete offer,(sic) but for elite sports practice,” she said.
Djokovic started the season with a perfect record, winning all 18 matches he played and claiming three titles in a row before the pro tours were suspended from March 12.
Since turning pro in 2003, Djokovic has won more than $143 million in tournament prize money. He is also the highest-earning tennis player of all time in terms of on-court earnings.
