Novak Djokovic’s Ambitious Plans for South American Tennis Tours

At 36 years old, Novak Djokovic is showing no signs of slowing down. The tennis legend recently disclosed his desire to embark on an exciting new venture before hanging up his racket – organizing an exhibition series across South America. This revelation comes as Djokovic acknowledges his relative absence from the Latin American tennis scene throughout his illustrious career.

The last time Djokovic graced South American soil was back in 2016 when he proudly represented Serbia at the Rio Olympics. However, the idea of bringing more world-class tennis to the passionate fans of this region has been ignited by his contemporaries, such as Rafael Nadal, who organized a successful South American exhibition tour with Casper Ruud in late 2022.

Djokovic, who shares a close friendship with Spain’s Carlos Gomez-Herrera, has already engaged in discussions with his hitting partner about the potential of hosting a similar exhibition series in South America.

“Tournaments in South America. I was just talking to Charlie [hitting partner Carlos Gomez], and I hope we can do it. It’s a wish, of course. Right now, my main focus is on the Grand Slams, but perhaps the opportunity will arise while participating in those tournaments,” Djokovic revealed.

When asked about the reasoning behind this aspiration, Djokovic emphasized the unique passion of South American sports enthusiasts, particularly for tennis. He expressed his desire to experience this fervor week after week while competing in these competitions.

As Djokovic put it, “Somehow the passion of people in South America for sports, and therefore for tennis, is something that is unique, and I want to experience that week after week playing in those competitions. Well, we’ll see. Maybe in some distant future, since I have time, I’m young.”

Despite turning 36 in May, Djokovic’s recent accomplishments prove that he’s far from considering retirement. In the current year, he clinched three Grand Slam titles, solidifying his position as a dominant force in the tennis world.

After securing his 24th Grand Slam title at the US Open, Djokovic made it clear that he has no intentions of retiring while still performing at the peak of his abilities. “Knowing that I play at such a high level still and I win the biggest tournaments in this sport, yeah, I don’t want to get rid of this sport. I don’t want to leave this sport if I’m still at the top, if I’m still playing the way I’m playing,” Djokovic affirmed following his US Open triumph.

Looking ahead, Djokovic is gearing up for the final leg of the 2023 season, with plans to compete in the Paris Masters, ATP Finals, and the Davis Cup Final 8. His dedication and enthusiasm for the sport continue to inspire fans and fellow players alike, and the prospect of witnessing a South American tennis spectacle organized by Djokovic himself adds an exciting new chapter to his remarkable journey.
