He’s the world’s top ranked tennis player and already considered one of the greatest of all time. But did you know Novak Djokovics got a soft spot for athletics? We got the Serbian to take on SPIKES' world’s fastest interview. 

How important is running in your physical preparation?

Tennis is a dynamic sport and we have lots of quick change of directions, but it's important to create good base of endurance and energy supply, which you achieve with running.

Ha, we all knew athletics is the mother of all sports. So, what’s your favourite event in track and field then?

The 100m, 4x100m relay and high jump.

Novak Djokovic ()

Watch out Barshim, Bondarenko and co, Djokovic is practising his jumping skills!

No surprise, the high jump is on fire at the moment. What’s your 100m PB?

My record in the 100m sprint is 60 metres… hahahah!

Brilliant, we love the honesty. Who is your favourite track and field athlete?

Emir Bekric and Ivana Spanovic, Blanka Vlasic.

Understandably. So we’ve got world champs coming up this year, what do you think of Usain Bolt's 100m world record of 9.58?

I think Bolt is a puma, trapped in a human’s body ;-)

You might be right there, mate…
