Even though Djokovic didn’t get an ideal start, he’ll like to turn the tables around at the Serbian Open 2021.

The documentary of Novak Djokovic will be releasing soon and he spoke about it extensively ahead of the Serbian Open 2021. He revealed that the initial idea stuck to him four years ago. However, his team waited for some time in order to capture some more fascinating moments of his career.

“It was almost 4 years ago when we thought of it first and we started to record something with Amazon actually. We did not release any of that footage, we decided that we are gonna wait for some better moments when the time arise that we can create something with that footage,” said Djokovic to EssentiallySports during the Serbian Open media day.
