World No. 1 Novak Djokovic took part in an Emirates ATP Rankings Google+ Hangout with 10 lucky fans on Sunday ahead of the start of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.
When asked what he had been up to the past few weeks, Djokovic said, “I have too much energy not to be moving forward, doing something. So although I haven’t played an official match since Davis Cup for Serbia, I have undertaken lots of different charity activities and tried to help my foundation.
“I also watched AC Milan beat FC Barcelona in the Champions League and I went to Germany to visit my shoe sponsor’s headquarters. So although you haven’t seen me, I have been busy.”
The Serbian went onto admit he would challenge the musician “Bono, on clay courts in Monte-Carlo” if he had the chance to play against any living person.
His happiest moment, which will live long in his memory is “winning Wimbledon and the celebrations in the days afterwards, from the airport to the city centre and seeing my favourite musicians come up on the stage.”
Earlier in the day, Djokovic joined Roger Federer and ATP Executive Chairman & President Brad Drewett in launching the ATP Heritage campaign as part of a number of 40-year Emirates ATP Rankings celebrations planned for 2013.
Djokovic will start his bid for a fourth Dubai title against fellow Serbian Viktor Troicki on Tuesday.
