Unquestionably, the Serbian ace is the fittest of all the tennis players today. He follows a strict plant-based diet and does not consume any dairy products.

As a result, the 33-year-old can frog jump and sprint flawlessly even in the snow. However, the video shows that Novak and his wife Jelena are both making the most of their family time.
