Novak Djokovic‘s status as one of the tennis realm’s ‘GOATs’ is now abundantly clear. By accomplishing a historic achievement at the US Open, the Serbian tennis legend demonstrated why he is in a class by himself. The 36-year-old previously solidified his status as the player with the most major titles in the entire tennis circuit owing to his 24th Grand Slam triumph in New York.

But while he is one of the greatest athletes in the sporting community, the ATP superstar also holds some of the weirdest beliefs. From telepathy to magical water, the ‘Djoker’ has some bizarre views that might also be the secret sauce to the current world No. 1 player’s unrivaled legacy on the court. So, let’s check it out here.

According to his previous revelations in 2018, the ATP legend has long been a firm believer in telepathy. Moreover, Novak Djokovic is an advocate of mind-over-body therapy since he believes in the power of the mind that can even cleanse polluted water.

The Serbian tennis star once also got himself a coach to seek out more about telepathy, which he regards as a gift from the almighty or the “higher order”. Djokovic previously said, “I feel like [these] are the gifts from this higher order, the source, the god, whatever, that allows us to understand the higher power and higher order in ourselves”.

The 36-year-old went on to say that he knows of certain people who used the power of gratitude and prayer to transform “polluted water” into the purest form of water that has healing powers. He added, “Because water reacts … molecules in the water react to our emotions, to what is being said.”

Novak Djokovic’s controversial incident with the magic potion

As he holds some of the most bizarre and controversial views, the Serb previously garnered a lot of attention at the 2022 Paris Masters. During his encounter with Stefanos Tsitsipas, the public saw the 36-year-old player’s support team mixing something in a water bottle with the utmost care.

Goran Ivanisevic, the Serb’s coach, made every effort to obstruct the view since he thought their actions were drawing attention from everyone. They continued cooking something up, as the bottle was later passed to the 24-time singles Grand Slam champion during the changeover of his semifinal match.

Even during his triumphant run at the previous season’s Wimbledon, the ‘Djoker’ was sighted consuming something that didn’t look like liquid out of his water bottle. When later questioned about the bottle and its contents in a press conference, the ATP player gave a bizarre response: “Magic potion”. The Serb refused to address the matter further, stating that the public would soon learn of it.

After attracting a lot of controversies for his ‘magic potion,’ Djokovic was once again asked about the same after his championship victory in London. While suggesting it is a business secret, the current world No. 1 labeled it as a “supplement” that might also come out in the markets.  He said, “You’ll try it and you’ll let me know how it feels. You might win Wimbledon.”

Djokovic’s ‘magic potion’ quickly became a talking point for many who deemed it something dodgy. And it was the Serb’s wife, Jelena, who later came to his defense as she weighed in on the controversial matter on social media. She said, “Sit a bit in silence. Mind yourself more. Not everything you see is controversial. It could be private. Is that allowed?”

While being a firm believer in telepathy and magical healing, the 36-year-old has been an outspoken opponent of the COVID-19 vaccinations. Due to his anti-vaccination stance, the ‘Djoker’ was previously prohibited from entering several tournaments, including Grand Slams. Further, the ATP superstar made headlines at the 2022 Australian Open when he faced deportation from the country for being reluctant to take a jab.

Novak Djokovic has stayed unvaccinated to this point while also holding fast to his convictions, even though numerous medical experts and researchers have put forward the advantages and safety of the vaccine. He said, “My issue here with vaccines is if someone is forcing me to put something in my body that I don’t want.”
