Novak Djokovic’s bad back must be back to health! The World No. 1 today took part in a special soccer (football) event called “Battle For Babies” in Belgrade’s Red Star stadium.
The charity match placed the Red Star women’s team against the crew from the Serbia film “Montevideo, God Bless You!”
Djokovic joined the women’s side scoring a goal in the penalty for a 4-2 win.
The event raised nearly 600,000 dinaras ($8K USD) which will go toward the purchase of new baby incubators for maternity hospitals across Serbia.
Djokovic said he did not hestitate to help with the cause because of the importance in making sure mothers and their babies have better conditions.
Djokovic is scheduled to play Beijing next week and then the Shanghai Masters on October 10th. He has been recovering from a back injury her first suffered at the US Open and then re-aggravated during the Davis Cup 10 days ago.
