Novak Djokovic is a class apart in tennis, we all know that. Whether you are his fan or not, somewhere in the back of your mind, you know he can do incredible things on the pitch. There is, however, one form of tennis that he could not master, and that is wheelchair tennis.
Novak is a man who is inspired by everything and everyone around him. His adversaries inspire him, his difficult childhood inspires him. You boo and heckle man, and you inspire him.
There is another source on which he draws his inspiration, namely wheelchair tennis players.
These tough men and women laugh at the atrocities and challenge the chances of not only leading a normal life, but also of thriving in the world of sport.
Novak Djokovic takes a wheelchair on the ground
Tennis is not an easy sport to practice even standing, take it from me. You can train and train for hours, and yet you can't even grasp certain fundamentals.
This is all the more reason to admire these men who take the tennis courts with their wheelchairs and look so easy.
Novak Djokovic previously tried to play wheelchair tennis at the 2017 Australian Open. He joined his friend and wheelchair tennis Grand Slam champion Dylan Alcott.
Novak's difficulties begin even before the start of tennis. Unable to move an inch during the first point, Novak hilariously asked Alcott to “play right in the middle”. And guess what? His fights continue even if Alcott forces.
As the game ends, Novak Djokovic urges the crowd to give a big hand to Dylan and his fellow wheelchair tennis players. Dylan is full of praise for the Serbian, calling him the biggest supporter of wheelchair tennis.

This memory is the perfect blend of sincere compassion and a dash of some of Novak's comic attempts to try to play.
Novak has had passionate words that I hope resonate with everyone who reads this.
“I said it before, these guys are heroes to me, they really are. They make the game of tennis more beautiful and unique because of what they do and the way they do it. They turn their disability into something that inspires a lot of people, including myself. “
