Novak Djokovic After years of practice and sheer hard work, he has become one of the greatest tennis players of all time. But there is always a beginning. The 21-time Grand Slam champion must have started somewhere, too. What was the spark that ignited the fire?

This question has remained on the minds of tennis fans all over the world. After watching Serbs play and win championships for almost two decades, that question has finally been answered. The answer came from the maestro himself.

We Are Tennis, a campaign by BNP Paribas to promote the sport of tennis, posted a cute photo of little Novak Djokovic hitting the ball with his tennis racket.

“Tennis was not our sport in the family. I fell in love with him by accident. They built 3 courts in front of my family’s restaurant. I started watching tennis on TV and asked my parents to buy me a racket. This is how it all started” subtitle read.

Novak Djokovic took the time to hone his skills and improved his fitness to compete internationally. And what a great story and inspiration we all have.
