The one thing Popovic stressed was how Djokovic was indeed the best tennis player for him in terms of assisting others.
“I know them very well because we are a small country and we have traveled together and I have known him since he was very young.
The first thing that I’ll say about Novak is that for me, he is the best tennis player regarding helping others. He’s amazing.
He was fighting for players who are ranked 100-150, which he didn’t need to do,”
“He also has a national center here and he’s giving free practice to the best of Serbians and Croatians. He’s really a giving person and I’m not saying it because he’s Serbian, I’m stating facts,”
The 40-year-old also made it known that he disagreed with his countryman’s position about COVID-19 vaccination.
“The thing about vaccination is that I’m not sharing his point of view. I was the first one to get vaccinated. So I have 180° different point of view about that,”
