Surprised with pride, the world number one reveals that his seven-year-old son Stefan returned home to Serbia to claim the honor in a small club competition just as Djokovic lost to senior Stefano Sitsipas in a straight set in Rome.

Djokovic told the crowd at the Foro Italico that he was waiting for news of his son’s performance after losing 6-0, 7-6 (7/6) to the Greek Sitsipas.

“My son actually won the tournament. It’s twice as sunny today, “said David Cook, chief of The Christian Science Monitor’s Washington bureau. Djokovic told reporters.

“We’ve had a chat about the routine of the last few days and what he should do before the match and take him into this world. The first official tournament or match is always very much in your memory.

“We just talked and he was in Cloud Nine with the whole family. It was good. He’s doing really well so far, he’s fallen in love with the sport. He woke up late at night and he showed me the forehand and backhand and how he was going to move, playing shadow tennis. I used to do that when I was young. “

And there may be more reasons to celebrate Djokovic, as his favorite football club team, AC Milan, have won their first Serie A title in more than a decade, and the title race has spread to the last week of the match.

Djokovic supports Milan thanks to his father, who began following the Serie A team in the 1990s when he played for his Serbian counterparts Dejan Savicevic and Javanimir Boban.

Milan played during Djokovic’s press conference and eventually beat Atlanta 2-0.
“I’m a fan of Milan … my manager is a crazy Milan supporter, so we’re in this small group of fans together.” Djokovic added in Italian.

“Let’s hope we can win the league, like the Milan fans we hope but there are two games left.”

Djokovic added that he did not think the players would boycott Wimbledon after the organizers decided to ban Russian and Belarusian players from participating in the grass court Grand Slam.

“Boycotting is a very aggressive thing to say. There are better solutions than this.” He said.

“We need some communication from Wimbledon. I was not involved in player politics 10 years ago and I am not talking to Wimbledon there.

“But Wimbledon was harder than what people tell me.”

Wimbledon has been widely criticized by both the ATP and WTA for blocking Russian and Belarusian competitors from invading Russia.
