Before his pressure-packed attempt to finally win a French Open, Novak Djokovic took some time on site to celebrate his 29th birthday which was Sunday.

Tournament head and former player Guy Forget had Djokovic cut the cake – did he take a bite at least? – and then gave the world No. 1 a special French Open towel which Djokovic said son Stefan might use it for a pillow.

Djokovic begins his bid for a first title on Tuesday against Rendy Lu.

Wog Boy Says:

Happy Brzday Nole, even Roger called you to wish you happy birthday, but then changed his mind , I wonder why?;)

Pauly Says:


Nole n Roger are great friends

Wog Boy Says:


Of course they are mate..

Keith Says:

This is the “Nole”-era, as each passing month and tournament makes clear: Roger in decline, health and otherwise. AND it is Novak Djokovic vs. rest of the Men’s tour in Tennis.
ALL the accolades for Novak upto now are not enough – in acknowledging the fine balance Nole has created in his home and professional life. Even Roger and Rafa, have been saying for almost last two years: that this High-wire act of Nole cannot continue too long, BUT it has and likely to continue for some more time. A sight to behold, I might add.
Hope Novak remains healthy, so Nole-era blissfully continues.
Wishing you all the success on tennis court, admiring your often-sublime performance off the court, this is my Sincere wish for your 29th birthday.
PS. Hope I get to meet you someday. Big time admirer of yours, I live in NY.

Michael Says:

My belated heartiest wishes to Novak on his birthday.

But, for a Tennis Star, every birthday is fraught with danger as he or she ages which will ultimately reflect and have repurcussions on their body.

jane Says:

Congrats to Nole on 200 weeks @ #1!

mat4 Says:

Yes, and there’s a good chance he will join Connors and Lendl, on both lists: consecutive weeks at no 1 and overall weeks at no 1.

Basically, Novak needs this FO and another great season with perhaps 2 slams to join the Open Era elite club in every statistical category.

mat4 Says:

Thank you, Sarah.

Wog Boy Says:

jane, JK and VP,

Thanks for the nice words from few days ago and yesterday, much appreciated šŸ™

J-Kath Says:

Like your “emoti” WogBoy.

Giles Says:

Zozza. FYI fed and joker are not friends. They are polite to each other.

Okiegal Says:

I didn’t know that Fed and Novak were friends??? This is news to me. I am sure they are cordial to each other, but friends, no way……..too much water under the bridge between Roger and Novak’s parents. Where do people come up with this stuff??

Giles Says:

Okie. Trust Zozza to hallucinate as usual!

chrisford1 Says:

I don’t think Djokovic has ever had any problems with Papa Fed or Lynette, but Fed for years had his aristocratic irritation with the bumpkin ways of the Djkovic family. (Perhaps not realizing that they had made a super high risk investment in Nole that wiped out their family savings and had his Mom working 3 jobs. And Djokovic’s rapid rise to stardom despite missing over a year of training and most of the junior circuit, was celebrated vigorously as wins wiped out the family debt and they all had great futures assured from it, not just Nole.)

Djokovic generally gets along well with other players, their friends, family and teams. As he is a natural schmoozer. Fed is an exception. But Federer also gets along, or at least in his heyday, played the magnanimous monarch well, and was exalted by writers and a large part of tennis fandom.
The two of them? Like oil and water..
