Novak Djokovic’s Sumo wrestling secret exposed on his 34th Birthday: Novak Djokovic has proven himself as the world’s best tennis player with 79 ATP titles to his name. He is the one who broke the Federer Nadal domination in Grand Slam finals by winning the 2008 Grand Slam title when he trounced Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
Novak Djokovic has turned 34 today (22 May 2021) and he had his “happy birthday” from all over the world. The Serbian legend received a very special message from Japan. Not many would know that Djokovic’s love for Sumo wrestling led him into an interesting situation in Japan in 2019. At that time Djokovic was preparing for the Japan Open when he challenged sumo actor and former pro sumo wrestler Yoshinori Tashiro.
Novak had one of his most amusing challenges when he tried to force around (with zilch success) the Japanese wrestler who eventually didn’t forget that it was Djokovic’s birthday.
It was soon after revealed that the Novak Djokovic has chosen a strange way to warm up ahead of the Japan Open Tennis Championship, taking on retired sumo professionals who speed-coached him a few wrestling movements. It was also disclosed that Djokovic visited Ryogoku Edo-Noren, a restaurant facility with a dohyō, a sumo tussling ring where the Serb wrestled with sumo professionals.
At present Novak Djokovic is about to start his crusade in Belgrade, where he is the hot favourite to secure the title. The Serbian superstar had a terrific run in Rome where he was halted in the final by a Rafael Nadal after it gritty 3-setter.
Novak is understandably seeded number 1 in Belgrade, with Frenchman Gael Monfils being the seed no.2. Djokovic was disappointed in the first edition of this event that was staged in April when he was defeated in the semifinals by Asla Karatsev.
