Novak Djokovic Receives Serbian Church Honor [Video]
by Tom Gainey | April 29th, 2011, 1:13 pm

With all his wins and success, Novak Djokovic has been a very busy man off the court this season. Yesterday, the World No. 2 was honored with the Order of Saint Sava of the first degree which is the highest decoration awarded by the Serbian Orthodox Church for his generosity and dedication to the religion.

“This award is certainly the most important I’ve ever got,” said Djokovic. “As an athlete and a religious person, it is hard for me to find appropriate words to describe my feelings of gratitude for the confidence I gain from the Holy Synod. I can only say that it can be earned only with hard work and self-belief, belief in your loved ones and in God.”

Earlier today, Djokovic gave his thoughts about the Royal Wedding, sharing on his facebook page, “It was nice to see people respecting tradition and history in today’s Royal wedding. Lots of love and romance”.

Djokovic will be taking the court in just over an hour in his quarterfinal match against Blaz Kavcic.

Djokovic has won 27 straight matches (25-0 this year) and he’ll look to continue his torrid streak in Madrid next week.
