In a recent interview to the Raiffeisen Bank International, Novak Djokovic extensively talked about the importance of a healthy environment. He stated that every environmental issue is important and one should do everything to take care of nature.

“Environmental issues are essential,” began Djokovic. “Not just for me, I think it should be essential for anybody else. I mean, this is the only planet we got and so we might as well try to take care of it and live in harmony with nature. But in order to do that, we have to be conscious of our connection with nature and how everything in nature corresponds with our body and our anatomy and everything in our metabolic system.”

Even though I myself and of course, a lot of people would like this transformative phase to be much quicker and that everyone is aware of these issues right now and that we all work together collectively to make it right… But I think with the small steps, we can make something magical happen in the future for all of us,” added the World No. 1 player.
