I’ve great relationships with eminent personalities like Sachin, Virat and many others. I’ve been in touch with Virat Kohli over texts for a few years, but we have never met in person. It was a privilege to hear him speak kindly about me. I admire his career and achievements.”

As a 4-5-year-old boy in Serbia, I’ve always dreamt of reaching the greatest heights of Tennis, Winning Grand Slams and making history in this beautiful sport that has given me and my family so much. Coming from a country that faced challenges in the ’90s, my family had to gather money and resources for me to able to continue pursuing my dream and to play tennis. This humble upbringing makes me appreciate my achievements and where I am now. I use this platform for good, enjoying myself, growing my brand, and pursuing my passions while sticking to my core values.
