"Hi, Petre. Peco, how are you? I send you a big hug and a big hug from Belgrade, hoping to see you live soon. I love you so much and hug you. Be careful!" Said a cheerful Djokovic in the video.
It was really a wonderful surprise for the family. The boys and their father were over the moon after receiving the video. Djokovic not only wanted to meet them soon, he also addressed them by their names, which was a really nice gesture. In response, the father also gave Djokovic an encouraging message. "It takes little to be happy. A huge thank you to Nole who is not only the best tennis player but above all a man with a huge soul and heart. Thank you from the bottom of heart and soul for helping my son Petar have happy moments and smiles like watching you play. The power of love!" Concluded the father.
