Lifestyles of the rich and famous: Novak Djokovic

Published

on

Whether you love him or hate him, there is no doubt that tennis player Novak Djokovic is not only one of the best tennis players on earth, but also the richest. His $134 million in career prize money is the highest all-time – that is right, Djokovic is the highest-paid tennis player ever.

He became the first tennis player to win $100 million in prize money. In 2019, Novak Djokovic has made $9.1 million on the court – the most of any men’s tennis player. Forbes estimated that as of July 2019, Djokovic had made $50 million this year.

That would mean he’s made over $40 million in endorsements. Djokovic’s sponsors include Seiko, Lacoste, Asics, and Ultimate Software Group. Djokovic added Peugeot as an endorsement partner in 2020. His biggest pact is with Lacoste worth eight-figures annually, including bonuses.

However, he also has a few side-hustles bringing in some cash. In 2013, he wrote a nutrition and lifestyle book called “Serving to Win: The 14-Day Gluten-Free Plan for Physical and Mental Excellence” about the diet that changed his career.

He also released his own nutritional food line called “Djokolife.”

Furthermore, Djokovic e owns a chain of restaurants called Novak Cafe & Restaurant with locations in Belgrade, New Belgrade, and Kopaonik in his native Serbia.

He also opened a vegan restaurant in Monte-Carlo called Eqvita, but it appears to have closed.

Djokovic and his family own a company called Family Sport, which, according to the company website, focuses on event-planning.

In 2009, Family Sports bought the Dutch Open and turned it into the Serbia Open. It lasted four years before being bought back by the ATP. Djokovic has dabbled in the entertainment industry, too. He was an executive producer on the movie “Game Changers,” a documentary about athletes’ diets.

He was also in a docu-series titled “Transcendence” about physical, mental, and emotional health.

What does he do with all his hard-earned money?
Although he is not quite as flashy with his money as some of the other tennis players, he does seem to like acquiring property.

He owns a two-bedroom apartment in Monte Carlo – one of the most expensive real-estate markets in the world. In 2017, he bought a pair of condos in SoHo, New York City, for a reported $10 million. And in 2019, Djokovic bought a luxurious, three-bedroom condo in Miami.

Prices in the building range from $2 million to $13 million, with other three-bedrooms listed at over $9 million. Djokovic likes to arrive in style, showing up to the 2015 Boodles event in a helicopter. He’s also taken rides on private jets.

He bought a luxurious Manhattan 60 yacht for $2.5 million in 2009. It seems he has since sold it. Although Djokovic has been seen driving a Tesla Model X and reportedly also likes Audis and Mercedes-Benz, he reportedly biked to the Monte Carlo Masters, since he lives close by.

Djokovic uses a $75,000 pressure chamber called the CVAC Pod that is supposed to increase muscle tone, decrease lactic acid, and stimulate stem-cell production.

He also likes to help others. Djokovic and his wife, Jelena, help run the Novak Djokovic Foundation, which aims to improve early-childhood education. The couple also matched a $100,000 donation to the foundation for the “Season of Giving” campaign in 2018.

In 2014 Djokovic donated the $750,000 he won from the Italian Open to relief efforts for a flood in Serbia. The tennis ace and his wife Jelena pledged one million euros to buy medical equipment in Serbia’s fight against the coronavirus outbreak.

Maria Sharapova Gives a Sarcastic Reply to Mardy Fish About Gifting Him a Porsche

Published

on

By

The Porsche Tennis Grand Prix 2021, popularly known as the WTA Stuttgart Open, will be taking place soon. Interestingly, Maria Sharapova is promoting the tournament since she is the brand ambassador of Porsche.

 

 

Hilarious as always, former tennis player Mardy Fish asked Maria Sharapova if he could get a Porsche from her on Twitter. Interestingly, the 5-time Grand Slam champion came up with a witty reply.

“Yes. I’d be happy to help you with the purchase,” said Sharapova sarcastically in response.

Sharapova didn’t deny Fish a Porsche but instead agreed to help him with the purchase. Some fans are even suspecting that Sharapova might gift a Porsche to her fellow countryman.

Sharapova has been working as the brand ambassador for Porsche since 2013. Thus, she often promotes its events across many social media platforms. She reminded the fans that even though the WTA Stuttgart Open 2021 is happening in the closed stadium this year, they can still watch it from the safety of their homes.

The tournament will begin on April 19, 2021, and will run till April 25, 2021.

Maria Sharapova at the WTA Stuttgart Open 2021
Sharapova has won the Stuttgart Open title three times in her career. Stunningly, she won the title for three consecutive years in 2012, 2013, and 2014.

In 2012, she led a tough campaign but managed to win the title by defeating Victoria Azarenka in the final. Next year, she thrashed Li Na to win her second back-to-back title. The final match against Caroline Wozniacki in 2014 was probably her toughest, where she made an incredible comeback after losing the first set to clinch her third title.

Only Martina Navratilova and Tracy Austin have won the title on more occasions than Sharapova. Navratilova won it six times while Austin won the initial four editions of the tournament. However, before 2006, the Porsche Grand Prix used to take place in Filderstadt instead of Stuttgart.

Fans got quite disappointed when Sharapova retired suddenly in 2020. They believe that she still has a lot of tennis left in her and can make a comeback. Will Sharapova return to the court?

‘Suffered a lot’: Roger Federer’s startling confession about wife

Published

on

By

Roger Federer has opened up about wife Mirka in a revealing insight into the most famous WAG in world tennis.

 

 

Roger and Mirka are arguably the most-loved couple in tennis, with fans swooning over their relationship.

Mirka was a budding tennis player before meeting Roger at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, before a number of debilitating injuries forced her to retire.

“My wife Mirka has suffered a lot due to her physical problems,” Federer said in an interview with Ringier.

“Her career ended very early and I myself advised her to end that pain.

“I told her as if it were the simplest thing in the world.

“Looking back on it today, I get a weird feeling. I am still playing tournaments at 40 and I find it difficult to stop.”

Federer also revealed a funny anecdote about when Mirka called him in the middle of a match.

“She once phoned me while I was in the middle of a game,” he recalled.

“She had completely forgotten that I was playing.

“This is exactly what I like about her. When we are in a tournament, she is 100% involved, while at home she is free from all thoughts.”

Roger and Mirka have been married since 2009 and have two sets of twins together – Myla and Charlene and Leo and Lenny.

After retiring from tennis in 2002, Mirka went on to serve as Federer’s manager for a brief period before having children.

Mirka and the kids are often spotted courtside at Federer’s matches, cheering on the Swiss legend.

Meanwhile, Federer will almost certainly miss the Australian Open for the second year in a row, with the Swiss maestro said to be recovering slowly from a third knee surgery in 18 months.

Federer’s long-time coach Ivan Ljubicic has played down fears the tennis world has seen the last of the 20-times grand slam champion, who turned 40 in August.

Federer has played just 13 matches in 2021 and not one since suffering a straight-sets quarter-final loss to Hubert Hurkacz at Wimbledon in July.

The six-time Open champion’s latest four-month lay-off comes after he spent a year on the sidelines following his record-setting 15th semi-final appearance at Melbourne Park in 2020.

“Roger Federer is very unlikely to play the Australian Open,” Ljubicic told Sky Sport TV on Sunday.

“He is 40 and doesn’t recover as fast as before. But he wants to compete again and won’t retire all of a sudden.

“We will be able to see Roger again next year. I don’t know when exactly, but he is undergoing rehabilitation. He is recovering slowly, he is not in a hurry.”

The veteran superstar was still on crutches when he made a surprise appearance courtside at the Laver Cup in Boston in late September.

“Given that he was still on crutches, I doubt we’d see him here because he needs a longer prep to get ready for a grand slam than what he’s going to be able to have,” Australian doubles great turned commentator Todd Woodbridge told AAP.

Federer contested a record 21 successive Opens from 2000 to 2020 and boasts a remarkable 102-15 win-loss record at the tournament.

EMINEM’S CONVICTED BURGLAR IS BACK ON THE PROWL BEATING DOWN SECURITY GUARDS

Published

on

Matthew David Hughes, the man who broke into homes looking for Eminem multiple times in an effort to kill him back in 2020, is once again in legal trouble.

Hughes was originally charged with first-degree home invasion and malicious destruction of property but pleaded no contest to second-degree home invasion in exchange for the former charges being dropped.

Hughes pleaded guilty in Macomb County Circuit Court on Monday (November 22) for failing to show up for his probation appointment on September 30. According to court records, he also pleaded not guilty to assaulting the security guard. Following his sentencing, his attorney Richard Glanda said he didn’t know where Hughes would be residing considering he was reportedly homeless upon being arrested.

The man known to be Eminem’s stalker was originally sentenced to five years probation after serving 524 days in jail for breaking into the Detroit rap star Clinton Township house in April 2020 and threatening to kill him. Eminem allegedly woke up to Hughes towering over his bed and escorted him out of his house where a security guard restrained him until police arrived.

Hughes is currently being held in the county jail on $10,000 bond. He’s scheduled to be sentenced on December 15 for his parole violation.

Drake once had a similar stalking-related situation happen to him, when a knife-wielding woman was arrested in March for trying to break into his Toronto estate. She allegedly struck a security guard with a metal pipe when trying to gain access to the property.
